Ignorance Is A Popular Choice—Don’t Be Ignorant To How Your Fellow Man Will Change When The S**t Hits The Fan

This month here at Survival Dan we are covering how life will look like during and after a SHTF scenario and what we should expect. We have covered the 4 deadliest waves during a societal collapse, and how a wrong approch can get most people killed.

This week I want to talk about what to expect from people if a large-scale financial collapse occurred, or any SHTF Scenario for that matter. A financial collapse for example, would be a nationwide event (and possibly global), but this applies to smaller scale events also, because people are people.

As preppers we all like to contemplate how different people react when the SHTF, but it’s probably not as simple as we give it credit for. Because our country is a melting pot of different cultures, different economic classes and different religious affiliations, people will all handle certain situations differently.

For better or worse, we all handle situations differently. Some of us are better problem solvers than others, and some of us don’t handle stress very well. A combination of upbringing, gene pool and our environment all play a role in how we develop.

The reason this is important is that today we have the option of separating ourselves from situations. or people we want no part of. In an SHTF situation, we probably won’t have that choice. What we can do what it takes to stay in our homes and out of danger, we might be getting more visitors than we ever expected, and we need to be ready for them.

Civilized behavior and good will toward our fellow man is the peculiarity. It’s the oddity not the normal default program of mankind.

Civil behavior requires certain tenants to work. One of which is the certainty of punishment for transgressions. It requires the majority of mankind to abide by the agreed upon Rule of Law. When you take that civilizing power out of the world, you allow the natural brutality of man to become unsuppressed.

The scale of the disaster will directly correlate with how extreme people’s reactions will be, but even the smallest situations will give us an idea about how a person handles stressful events.

You can see the barbarism of mankind still in full bloom today with men, women, and children being slaughtered by the thousands in the Middle East.

Ignorance is a choice…and bad guys love that it has been an extremely popular choice throughout the centuries. Don’t be ignorant to how your fellow man will change when the S**t hits the fan.

Here are a few ways people will react in a crisis. But remember, people will be very unpredictable, especially in extreme situations.

For the most part, and for varying reasons, most people will not have any answer to any large scale event. This could be because they are completely unprepared to handle such an event, or because they refuse to admit that their perfect world is not so perfect anymore.

Who knows what the real numbers and time frame would be, but my guess is that at least 80% of the population will be gone in a matter of months in a large scale disaster. People who are 100% dependent on electricity, grocery stores and debit cards will find themselves with no choice but to cheat, steal and eventually die.

One of the first stages of dealing with grief is denial, and believe me, there will be a lot of people in denial. While we look at how people lived in the past and ask “how can I do that?” these people look at the past and say “I would die if I had to do that!” Most of them are right.

Not only are people reliant on automobiles and cell phones, they are reliant on the fuel and electricity it takes to run them and get food to the stores. But if all that falls apart, the government has a plan, and they will figure it out right? not likely.
