I put back some of the articles on my page, articles that I find are make sense for new situation in the world about this new Corona virus.
I felt there is need to put back some of that in this situation.
Whatever happens with this new epidemic or pandemic chaos around the world, as I always said it it will come to the bare essence of the people vs. resources combination.
Was, plagues, climate changes, asteroids… at the end it always come to the same: more people than resources.
Some of the articles here on page I wrote years ago, most of them are about situations that happened 25 or more years ago, but if you read it carefully and if you “transfer” some of that to your settings or this time you ll see philosophy and basics are same, for most of the situations.
Rest of the my articles archive and my articles from other places, and stories that are not being published on line anywhere are published as a books for some time on Amazon:
Corona, system, panic
Situation with Corona virus changes everyday, and that change is towards bad everywhere not to good, I still think this virus is not necessary so dangerous like most of us think (time will show if Im right), but that does not mean too much to us in “prepper terms” because I still think it will bring pretty big chaos everywhere.
Chaos will be more or less everywhere because many reasons like poor system reaction to virus, false information on public media about pandemic, panic, and generally poor will of people to live in changed times.
All that essentially and eventually may bring to the situation mentioned above: more people then resources.
We have being bombarded with information that system will take care for this thing, and in the same time as a preppers we need to know that system can not take care about things like this, if this gonna last for a long time.
Staying “tuned” or being mesmerized by info that “officials” will provide you for latest crisis makes sense if you wanna be kinda “aware” where things may go, or if you want to “check pulse” of the system, but to be mesmerized by it to the levels that you base your important decisions on it is simply wrong (as i mentioned many times before).
System job is simple-to keep the system running, so you are probably not gonna heard on TV official warning something like “we are out, it iseverybody for himself”.
At least you not gonna heard it on time to make some difference to you.
I listening here for days public announcements that “there is no need to stash up, to buy huge amonts of food, meds, water etc, because there is no need for it, goverment had it under control”.
Then yesterday I read bit shy government statement that “every household should have enough food, meds etc, so it can survive for couple of weeks without need to go out”
Now, if you waited here in my region for that announcement yesterday and go out to buy stuff, you could not find some items like masks, hand gel sanitizer and similar.
So, if you are prepper, survivalist, it really does not make sense to wait for someone to tell you “you need to go out and stock up”.
Smart people (survivalists) did that long time ago.
system and panic
I do not know how things are going there wherever you are, but here in my region it seems that people who are handling this crisis and make decisions are kinda idiots, at least majority of them.
There were so many flaws in dealing with this that often I am thinking about conspiracy theories now.
But then again, here everything is politics, and everything is about how things are “under the control” even when they are very far from any kind of control.
So people who are not competent will go out with info that will bring more panic, more false info, and at the end more misunderstanding and eventually chaos.
I have friend who works in goverment “crisis center”. He was out on radio, making statement that everything is under control, no need to panic, no need to buying stuff… on same day he called me privately and told me “you need to stock up and be prepared”, i told him “thank you i will” , of course he do not know I am prepared since the time of his elementary school.
What about people who trust his public anouncment?
Again, job of the system is to keep system running.
what going to happen?
Well nobody knows, but if you telling me that this virus does not have impact on society just go and check what measures China government took, in order to contain it.
And then think is your goverment is ready to do measures like Chinese, and are people around you ready to “agree” with measures like in China?
I know for sure here it would bring society to complete stop, and then to chaos.
So do I think we all going to die from virus, no, definetly not, but I do think there is huge possibility we might be pushed back, in some cases we might be pushed back in chaos and system collapse, for some time.
So, it definitely makes sense to be prepared for it.
