I would not count on FEMA. Or the speed of anything. Red Cross. Whatever. You name it. You probably feel that way too.
There are some things really great about it in the communal sense - the thing admirable about many cooperative east Asian groups.
I'm talking the United States of American Military.
It's not for everybody.
You will find your finest citizens there.
But having a strong military and veteran base is better than chaos. The Army essentially conditions for noise, panic and chaos. Military trainers are agitated by those stated conditions as seen in people, as well as agitated by those without situational awareness and slovenly stand in the way of movement and improvement. And movement and improvement are essential to surviving dicey conditions.
Let's say an earthquake absolutely rocks half our country to the point our daily flow comes to a halt. The grid goes down. Martial law is required. Police bullhorns will blast information. Perhaps some folks with generators may have their routers and radios up. Perhaps groups of people will grow close. No doubt some people will love to sow some chaos. Obviously those folks will need to be put down post haste, army style. Perhaps a devastating blizzard would freeze a bunch of people to hunker down in place and wait a little more calmly, but we have to plan for nearly everything. And we should know that as far as human nature in conjunction with some harshly imaginable natural occurrences, things could get really very bad.
But anyway, I think some Civics courses should be had for all human beings in America to understand the process of what would go down in any event. Down to the goddamned recycling.
I remember the trash cans in mess halls. One for Rubbish. One for paper items. You get the picture.
I want this shit organized. Like, I want the trash categorically broken down.
And I want people to understand how such a cooperative socialism would work. And that means little tolerance for third world bullshit. And for some people it would likely get addressed as I don't think that word means what you think it means. That means the hammer if need be. Not much room or time to fuck around. When the shit goes down, you should know the drill.
