    What is going to pass at the very,very end (ever considered that?).If one just cannot hack it anymore.I have thought about this myself being a prepper.
    I would just like to know there would be a peaceful way out.
    I have a contact to share for just that (Start a private conversation to share external email please)
    Its better to have it and not need it,than needing it,and not having it,just nice to know it's there.

    Extinction? Nah, I don't think so. Maybe a drastic reduction in population and a more feudal system developing. I don't see there being enough autonomy left in America for a Mad Max scenario to develop other than in localized regions and those will quickly be strafed with mini-guns and hellfires. I was in Haiti during the last overthrow and what happened there was when the army and police were not paid, they took their guns, and left to start their own agenda. Can you imagine what will happen when Snoopdoggy and Ice-P get their hands on a few drones and a gold-plated APC with mini-guns?

    Almost everyone of us here would opt for peaceful coexistence with our neighbors. However, one must fully recognize that true evil exists in the world and all around us. To deny that would not only be stupid, but quite possibly fatal. Once law and order breaks down, you may well be required to protect yourself and your loved ones, even to the point of maybe ending another human life. Getting to know your neighbors and making connections with those who have like morals and ethics also may significantly affect your survival prospects. Prep for the worst, hope for the best.

    People do that already, even while not facing a post apocalyptic societal collapse. When reality / existence becomes too much to bear...narcotics become a relatively peaceful way out.

    I am with Dylan Thomas. I would prefer "...not (to) go gentle into that good night. (but)

    Rage, rage against the dying of the light."

    sigh.....I included that in my dad's eulogy. It was one of his favorites and one I learned to recite by the time I was no more than 8 or 9 yrs old.

    This is "slightly" off target, something that rarely happens on Survival Monkey, but Dylan Thomas made me think about the demise of the family dinner table. All through my growing up years, my Mom, Dad, brother and I would sit around the dinner table and take turns reciting poetry, trying to find new and obscure poems and soliloquies, doing our best to out do one another with the recitation. That may be another form of euthanasia for some people (that's the thread connection) but cherished memories of the times in my life. Today, its hard to be heard over the sound from the TV set

    I can relate to that! The only difference is, we would compete to see who could speak the loudest...

    My oldest sister would speak to my mother, but the younger would cut in while the youngest sister would smack the table and squeak for attention. I would sometimes speak out of turn and received a fork thrown into my side by any one of my sisters, the blood often appearing much worse than the wound really was because chances were we had been eating spaghetti. My step mother would be raising her voice to my father, who had just stumbled in late from the bar after work, and she would remind him how she needed more money so we didn't have to always eat spaghetti. Of course, my Dad would remind her by pointing his finger directly in her face and growling, "Grrrrrrr," no, seriously he just growled, no words. And then we ate. Sometimes we laughed, but usually we just yelled and drew blood.

    Ahhhh, miss those days.

    And what idiot country would send a Sarin Gas missile, to take out two lone people, that live out in the middle of Bush Alaska? I ask that simple question? It is one reason I will NEVER live anywhere near a Major Population Center.... Those folks that do, choose to do so, for their own reasons, and they can live, or Die, with that choice.....

    *sigh* Government people.

    1. Something said or done to provoke laughter or cause amusement, as a witticism, a short and amusing anecdote, or a prankish act:
    "He tells very funny jokes. She played a joke on him.'

    2. Something that is amusing or ridiculous, especially because of being ludicrously inadequate or a sham; a thing, situation, or person laughed at rather than taken seriously; farce:
    "Their pretense of generosity is a joke. An officer with no ability to command is a joke."

    3. A matter that need not be taken very seriously; trifling matter:
    "The loss was no joke."

    4. Something that does not present the expected challenge; something very easy:
    "The test was a joke for the whole class."
