That kind of thinking is what will drive people to become looters and/or killers - they very things that they claim that they are not. I think that humanity
is the most important thing to protect, because without that, what's there to look forward to?
Many of the I-have-it-all-figured-out posts in this thread make it clear that people haven't thought through these situations very well, and some have pointed out the need to not draw attention to one's self
. But that doesn't fit the armchair Rambo I'm-going-to-kick-***-just-you-wait. It brings to mind the phrase, "everyone's got a plan until the shooting starts." I wonder how many here giving advice have been in real firefights, without air support or dozens of heavily armed buddies, for weeks on end.
