The Global State of Survival & Preparedness Report

Survival Report

We are really happy how many people participated in our survey. Over 1800 of you have answered the questions and I have spent the last few nights to whip all the responses into a presentable form. This is done now and I think it gives everyone a good idea what is on most people’s mind, why people prepare, what they prepare for and where you are standing compared to others.

The Global State of Survival & Preparedness Report comes in four parts but I strongly suggest you start with the first part.

    Very well written summaries. Thanks to both of you for taking the time to do this – 1800 respondents, that must have taken a lot of patience!

    too paranoid of the government to make reply. How many agents are assigned to watch these sites? I know that Homeland Sec. and everything from the White House down is anti Constitution.

      Hi Brian, I work on an online course about staying 100% anonymous online. All current Selco Survival Course members will get access to this course for free. I will show why for example Lulzsec members got caught, what serious cyber criminals do to stay anonymous, which VPN provider not to use (one that was recommended recently on survivalblog is absolutely NOT safe…) and more. After you have set yourself up not even your ISP (internet service provider) will be able to monitor your traffic. This is all legal and fine and sound, just governments won’t really like that they can’t monitor all their citizens so easily. But that is fine with us!

    I would like to know more about that anonymous surf also; it is getting bad in these parts; if I were the .gov I would set up all kinds of fake VPN and many other kinds of tools. Run them totally ligit, until the day you really need to monitor them. Just like any other good business; build a reputation and keep it up, then when the need comes, you tap your resources.

    I appreciate your every effort. I am in Calif. In this country we are so soft, so very soft. For any disaster many will suffer, mostly because of a lack of taking the time to discipline themselves to not watch TV, and use that time to read sites like this one.

    I watched, helplessly, once as some young, in training right, bad guys broke into my vehicle. I was a bit too far away to prevent it. But what impressed me most was the violation I felt as someone violently entered my space, my car. Still, it had to have been a shock many times that to have been caught in that town and getting shot at. It’s like, instant adjustment or die.
