If your living in suburbia or inner city, your neighbors are seemingly gone for the duration, and probably for good. It seems awfully naive to think people shouldn't loot homes rather than starve, go without enough blankets or heat, pretty much suffer from any of the basic needs.
Who's going to be the first to claim they wouldn't?
Living to close to Chicago for way too many years, I have seen the way children behave and grow up without morals. Then these children become teens, and finally adults. While I believe most preppers would be extreme cautious of teens and young adults, physiologists say children without supervision could easily become willy murderous thugs. They could lull you into a false sense of pity and then bang, you're dead. Read "Lord of the Flies".
I'd be Leary of any human PSHTF child or senior.
I also didn't know they had gators in Georgia. Ive seen them in Fla and La but never in Ga.
One look towards South Africa will give you a glimpse in to a zombie-filled future. 10 and 12 year olds with AK47s all trying to be the big man to impress the warlords that use them like fodder. Villages raided and atrocities committed unnecessarily. One of my main concerns in a total break down though is a local warlord/mis-guided militia who determines they are the best thing for the area. Kind of like The Governor, but worse.
There is also the faction of preppers who seem to only have a concern for stocking guns and bullets... makes you wonder what their plans are for food and water. Don't get me wrong here; I have my fair share of lead too. But you know who I mean... that's all they stock.
Has anyone here seen the movie, 'The Road'?
"What do you eat?"
"Anything we can find..."
Just to go back to the original topic... Animals are known to avoid tainted meat that can get them sick. So that could eliminate the wildlife threat for the zombies... Even though we shouldn't be wasting time talking about zombies, as much as I love it...
One thing I never see discussed is PSHTF births. I'm not talking about mothers who were preggos at the end, but children that are conceived PSHTF. Anytime a major city has a black out, 9mos later there is a spike in deliveries. What about people that start a family AFTER the end. What about people that get pregnant a year PSHTF when all of the medical supplies are depleted. Will we see more children having children in a PSHTF world? As people like us, born in the old world and tied to old ways die off, society will make a significant change.
The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper.
Once we as a society lose that affinity we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself.
