We Are at post TSHTF. Location for arguments sake is USA. You location (retreat) has been found for arguments sake! You the reader are going to be referred to, in this question as the have’s, I am the have nots. Rights lets get going, Complete TSHTF has taken place, the preppers (have’s) have all started to make their way with their friends & family to their retreat. Each one looking out for each other. Everyone has a place within the group and everyone has a job to do. You have planned for this ..it has finally happened, but never in your wildest dreams did you imagine it was going to happen this quickly, never did you imagine that it was going to turn society against each other so easily. You stop off at various locations to pick up supplies that were hidden along the route to your retreat, in the event that this would happen. You, your family and friends throughout journey listen to radios and hear of the unspeakable things that are happening right now, in major cities and towns, you all think “how lucky you are to have got out” women and children within your group are in tears, they have left friends behind, "are they gonna be ok?, a million and one questions are asked, are we gonna be ok dad? Will we see so & so again? Whats happening? (you get the drift)." Along the route you pass people who are thinking this is all going to be over in a dayor two, the lights will come back on and we will be back to normal? You are running on adrenalin , the practise pays off, you are out of the immediate danger zone, but you are not yet safe! Money virtually overnight has become worthless..the man who stashed away paper money is shortly going to become the Richest Man in the Graveyard! You arrive at your retreat, after a quick recon, again everyone has a place and job to do, they know it off by heart, but the kids and some of the women are still asking the questions, questions you don’t really want to answer!, you have more to think about now. A couple of days go by, you are getting updated as much as possible by the radios you managed to stash away, things on the “outside” are looking grim. Murder, riots, looting, everything that you EXPECTED (but didnt want to) was happening in the big towns and cities, it was going on right now. You are quiet safe in your retreat, you know the lay of the land, the area, the do’s and donts, you have been over the what if’s so many times! One of the look-outs report a vehicle approaching, everyone is now on guard, the vehicle comes right upto your retreat, your immediate response kicks in, and a number of questions race thru your mind, who are they? what do they want? are they armed?. However it turns out to be a family (me), (the have-nots) mum, dad and two kids, the kids are teen and a young adult 19 for eg. You have contact with the "have nots", you establish the following, they are NOT a threat, they are unarmed, they are genuine, thay have enough supplies if left on their own to last the family for around 1 month. You know that this is going to last longer than a month, your instincts are telling you that, you and your group are much better prepared than the "have-nots"...both you and the "have-nots" know this! However they are scared, as are people within your group, they don’t want to be left on their own they want the comfort and safety of being a part of a group…your group. Certain instincts are beginning to kick in. 1) we should help them ..after all there are only four of them, you look at the have-nots children, your own are just the same, scared!!! 2) but the have-nots dont have any skills to offer the group? 3) if the have-nots are allowed to stay, they will pick up skills, surely? 4) although they have only 1 months supply for the family, it could be added to the groups supply? 5) we cant send them out....to persih...or can we...."dog eat dog"? The group decide to hold a meeting on whether to allow the "have nots" family in, or send them on their way. WHAT DO YOU DECIDE AND WHY?
