Predator, Victim, or Survivor - Which will you be?
The first edition of Survival was a surprising success. It has sold thousands of copies in America, Europe, and Asia. The original version was intended to be a quick planning guide to start people thinking about the dangers of their world and how to plan for a 'worst case scenario'.
The concepts and ideas contained within are intended for Society Ending Events (SEE) or The End of the World as We Know It (TEOTWAWKI). However, many of the concepts can apply equally to more mundane emergencies.
Many readers asked for more advice and more solutions. I have attempted to provide that without straying too far from the original concept of the Survival book; to be a planning guide rather than a comprehensive, all-encompassing reference.
As I said, much of the book is based on the total destruction of life as we know it. That in itself implies a different set of rules than what we currently live by. That being said, some of the advice I provide is inappropriate and even illegal in our existing society. I do not promote employing these tactics in our current day-to-day life. However, they are critical tools in a true struggle for survival.
In a world gone mad, the current rules will not apply. You must make an active decision to be a Predator, Victim, or Survivor.
You must determine the value and use of this information. The author is in no way responsible for how you use this information, if at all. This is advice, and does not pretend to represent any legal or medical expertise.
When disaster strikes, there are only three types of people: victims, predators, or survivors. By their very nature the criminal element in our society are poised to assume the predatory role. This implies that the vast majority of the civilized population must make a conscious decision to be a victim or to survive. Lack of planning and foresight automatically relegates a huge percentage of society to the role of victim.
With just a little planning and awareness, individuals can change their potential lot in life from victim to that of a survivor. Again, intent of this book is to help individuals prepare to survive disruptions in our modern society. The reader will not find all of the answers in this book; perhaps you will find no answers in this book. I hope that this book will point some in the direction of survival.
Again, this is not written as the definitive survival manual, much of what you read will be suggestions that may not be applicable for every situation. With a little luck, no one will ever have to use the advice of this book to survive a disaster. That being said, many experts expect a nuclear device to explode on American soil within the next few years.
The concept of this book is based upon total societal collapse, with little or no hope for restoration of life as we know it.
Many people will read this and immediately discard it as `rubbish' since it is in opposition with their beliefs. Hopefully, others will read it and say, "Hmmm."
