This is what stupid looks like. After a fatal car crash on the 635 in Dallas, this is what happens to people in an emergency situation. People go in every direction. Order collapses.

This is what will happen if there’s a collapse of government, or a natural disaster like Hurricane Katrina, or a financial collapse. The photo below demonstrates the far reaching damage that a natural disaster can have on a big city.

And THIS is what happens to people who are unprepared and when government steps in to “Help.”

It’s a travesty that shit kind of thing can happen and that we are not prepared for major emergencies like this.

In a Shit-Hit-The-Fan (SHTF) scenario, all reason and logic goes out the window and people’s survival mode kicks in.

People get crazy in disaster situations. They forget how to do simple things like, think. People don’t think when their first reaction is survival.

We must be prepared for anything, or as much as possible. Earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, power outages, financial crises can cause total social and political collapse.
