I started thinking, several years ago; what it would take to survive a World wide economic collapse. There would be no food production, no water treatment, no sewage treatment, millions of hungry people, no heat, no or little electricity, no electronic banking, probably few governmental services, and the list goes on encompassing everything we take for granted today. I've tried to think of a plan to survive this catastrophe but sadly I do not see this scenario as being easily survivable for anyone but the very well connected politically or the military. It could, in my opinion; spell the end of our representative republic and bring about a dictatorial government supported by the military. Total independence from any services or support could mean survival for a family or group if they could defend their resources or were isolated enough that overtaking said resources would be too costly, i.e.; remote Alaska. What are the thoughts around surviving the World being pushed back to late 1700's?
