The country has never been so divided. It is indeed a scary time to live in the United States and the best thing you can do right now is to hope for the best and prepare yourself for the worst. I was trying to calm myself with a powerful tincture from CBDmd and found myself pondering the things I should do to prepare for political unrest and the potential civil war that’s brewing in the U.S.
I’ve lived off the grid for years. I also spent many years in a line of work where I developed a particular set of skills that happens to make me an expert on survival in both urban and rural areas of unrest.
As I sat in my cabin outlining my survival techniques, I realized that I wasn’t the only one who could benefit from my exploration of hypotheticals. Most people on the planet haven’t experienced the things I’ve been through, nor do they have the training to deal with such situations.
Hopefully you won’t have to go through all of the difficult missions I once did, but if things go south with this election, you’ll undoubtedly face some form of resulting hardship. The question isn’t if things will get bad; it’s how bad will they get?
1.Stay Away From Protests
It doesn’t matter how passionate you are about something, protests are bad news. We live in the midst of a pandemic and being in a large crowd is a great way to get covid. Protests are also becoming increasingly violent and once you’re there, you’re pretty much stuck.
This is also an obsolete form of expression. Protests may have accomplished things 50 years ago, but now they are an absolute waste of time. Go online and do research to take down the big guys. Waving a sign at them is ridiculous.
If things really start to get bad in your area, just leave. It’s great if you have an RV, but if not go anyway. Your apartment and ikea furniture isn’t worth being burned alive by an angry mob of political extremists.
If you can swing it, rent a uhaul indefinitely and if society collapses you can use it as an RV.
3.Stay Armed Whether You Like It Or Not
Guns are horrible. I’ve never been attracted to guns and I hate the fact that I own a couple. The problem with guns is that they exist. That’s a reality that isn’t going to change and the only way to live on an even playing field is to have a gun yourself. It’s terrible, I know, but you don’t get to decide how the world is, you get to decide how you’re going to try to adapt and survive.
This should be number one on the list, because if you aren’t resourceful, your chances of surviving political unrest are going to be greatly decreased. The best thing you can have is a can do attitude. Follow these four steps and you’ll be just fine.
