IMHO this wrong, the more you have in a group the better the chances that one or more will turn on you as supply's dwindle.The more people the better right? As long as you can trust them.
this is the second post of yours I have seen, both are good posts as in you have a concern about opsec/working alone as been misguided notionsSay a person has no money but needs access to resources in the future and is willing to work for it. Preparedness can really add up. The more people the better right? As long as you can trust them. I know it sounds bad but how else can you do it sometimes?
I disagree with this statement.. not the I am prefect and will follow it but..We will have to make those judgements with our experience and the guidance of "whatever we see as our guiding force". It has been said that your first duty is to God, then your family, and finally to your "neighbors". That is the way it will play out for me. You might notice that "family means more than being a blood relation to me.
I personally would care for an injured member so long as first they bring value to the group. Second, it appears they can recover and third, it does not put me or mine in jeopardy. If these three points don't apply then a gentle tap behind the ear may be used…I think it's kindof worth taking care of them if they help me protect what's mine. What if I get injured? I would expect that they would take care of me too. But maybe I'm more trusting of people. I'd rely on them owing me just like if the roles were reversed. Actually it'd be very likely that
I'd be the servant.
If there's plenty to go around and you'll have a better chance of surviving with others, why turn against them?
I think I will be extending lead at the slightest hint of a threat. We have worked to hard for to long to take chances on strangers and I don't see letting someone move on once they have identified my location. Sorry but they can help fertilize the land….I think it's an issue that if the SHTF we are all going to have to deal with, and that is who can we really trust?
My short answer is that I trust no one outside of my immediate family. Anyone else has to earn trust by their actions. My wife and daughter thinks that is somewhat Neanderthal, but hey, it's worked for me for many years without anyone sticking it to me.
I don't know how it will work if things really do go south. I don't see my current trust model working very well if things are fluid and I have to trust someone on short notice. I guess that I'll have to extend a certain amount of trust, all the while keeping a very close eye on them. Not my ideal way, but what choice do I have?
