Why should we even care?

Evidence for the need to prepare

Literary Evidence, Rise and Fall of the Great Powers by Paul Kennedy, Zeitgeist the movie, 1913 by Oliver de Mille, Justice For All by Orrin Woodward, The Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin, Financial Fitness Pack by LIFE Leadership

Anecdotal Evidence, Lack of aid during aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, NWO mandates, Central Banking Families, European Union, Proposed North American Union

Historical Evidence, Examples of "Fiat" money throughout history, Roman Denarius, China's Flying Money, France's "Fiat" money - Livres, Assignats, and Francs, Weimar German Mark, Continental Dollar, Zimbabwe dollar, Petrodollar, Causes of War, Lack of Resources, Default on DEBTS, Conflicting Idealogy

Principles of Survival

Decide to survive, 90% of survival is mental (The will to win)

Be prepared (Plan for the worst; hope for the best), Have a plan, Communicate the plan (within the group), Adjust as necessary

Be Pro-active not Re-active, Be first to act (Lead the way as early adopter/first responder)

Prepare in Stages, Every Day Carry, Get Home, Bug Out, 90 Day, 1 year, Permanent Self Sufficiency

Potential Problem(s)

Economic Collapse, Federal Reserve, Quantitative Easing, End of Petrodollar agreement (USD as world reserve currency), Foreign Countries Implement US debt collection policies

Natural Disaster, Cosmic interference, Asteroids, Comets, Solar flares

War, Civil, Invasion, Martial Law

Disease Pandemic

Distribution Chain Interruptions, This would be the natural result of any of the potential catastrophes

Other/Unknown, We don't know what we don't know

Risks organized by State

Potential Solution(s)

Every Day Carry Bag

Get Home Bag

Bug Out Bag

90 Day supply

Interpreting your results

0 – 20 points: You probably won’t survive. Prepare to line up in front of a FEMA camp and beg the government for food, water and shelter.

21 – 30 points: You have a slim chance of survival, but only if you adapt quickly and improve your preparedness status immediately.

31 – 40 points: You have a solid foundation for survival but need to quickly ramp up your preparedness to be ready.

41 – 50 points: You are better off than most but still have a lot of preparedness tasks to complete. Seek to network with others who possess the skills you lack.

51 – 60 points: You are very well prepared, far better than most, and will likely survive just fine as long as you surround yourself with capable people who share your preparedness mindset.

61+ points: You are extraordinarily well prepared and are almost certain to live through the chaos if you stay alert.
