Let's assume SHTF somehow. All the zombies are dead. The pandemic is over. Radiation levels are back to normal. The environment is okay. You and your group survived but modern society no longer exists and 60% of the human race is essentially wiped out. Now your group has chosen you to rebuild civilization.

I like the idea.

But unfortunately, there's no real way to control how a society will build itself unless there is an outside influence forcing them in certain directions.

Which is exactly how we've ended up with a majority of democracy not because it works (which it sort of does, not very well though) but because the UN offers a lot of help and valuable resources to those who are democracies and have an interest in joining the UN.


I would try to aim for a technocracy, but in a world where people with specialized skills are limited, it would become difficult if just one of those specialized people where to die
A democracy would be retarded in a SHTF situation as most people will be running round like headless chickens whilst there emotions wreck havoc with there rational thought.
A dictatorship never really works and will mostly end in uprising turning into it's opposite which would be democracy, which as stated wouldn't work out to well.
Communism would possibly work but it only takes a small amount of anarchy to annihilate the entire process

I say the best would be to keep to yourself regarding food and resources. Whilst scavenging parties and defense would be dealt with by the whole.
A mutual pact if you will.

Yes, democracy has we know it would not exist. A semblance of democracy could exist though, even if it dies out shortly after it's founding.

It's sounds like you would favor a confederation with aims similar to the Brotherhood of Steel Outcasts.

I was thinking more along the lines of an agrarian based society rather than technological, but obviously if you can get your hands on any technology you should because it's probably going to be useful one day, even if it gets used as scrap.

Sure you don't turn over in your sleeping bag and say "Time to rebuild!"...It takes ideas, decisions, time and effort to make it happen. Wouldn't it be fair to say though, that part of the post-apocalypse is trying to find a lifestyle fit for survival?

Every civilization on Earth thrives because of their ability to adapt and survive to a certain point. They decided to remake their surroundings in a certain fashion, sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't.

personally, I'd go with the single leader route for a little while, with my fellow group members advising a bit or acting as walls to bounce off ideas since it's still kinda emergency-ish until we find a place to settle. once we become stable, begin a transition to a democratic-republic government form as made by the group members. make sure to have a just-right constitution when it comes to being clear and being vague for future innovation.

Industry and education. These two things are what created modern society. In a post-apocalyptic world, those two things will rebuilt it.

First and foremost, the industry will not rely on scavenging for its necessities; although scavenging will most certainly be used. The ability to manufacture necessities from scratch will be the most powerful asset for any civilization. Building materials, guns, pharmaceuticals, industrial equipment, and vehicles will be the highest priorities, however flexibility will be important. While the state will run most important industries, private enterprise will be encouraged to provide consumer goods above and beyond basic necessities (such as food) that state industries provide along with whatever else they can find a market for.

Agriculture will not be neglected. Every available method to sustainably increase crop yield will be utilized including industrial fertilizers, irrigation, herbicides, pesticides, mechanization, and if possible, GMOs. Farming will likely be state-run, but without inefficient centralized micromanagement. Private farmers will be readily accepted, but not solely relied upon.

Education will be compulsory for all citizens from childhood to adulthood. The priority will be on advancing individuals to their highest potential. Prioritization for engineering and medical professions will be prominent at the highest end, followed by scientific fields of research. Laborers will not be shunned by the system. Schools will attempt to socialize individuals to view common laborers as a valuable part in the machine and not as a failure or an idiot. As industry is a primary focus of society, workers cannot be mistreated or stigmatized.

Military service may or may not be compulsory, depending on population and the hostility of surrounding states. Military doctrine will heavily armed infantry divisions initially designed for anti-infantry and light-anti vehicle duty. Divisions will be mechanized as resources and logistics allow. Military forces will be developed for simply tasks (EG: an air force for reconnaissance) and primed (IE: prototypes will be developed and tested, but not mass produced) to combat possible threats.

Crime will be punished harshly, however incarceration will be rare. Theft and vandalism will punished with forced conscription. Rape and assault will be punished with forced labor. Murder and treason will be punished with death. All criminals will be given a trial by jury and will be assumed innocent until proven guilty. Political corruption will not be tolerated.

Society would be heavily based on survival of the state over needs of an individual. However every effort would be made to treat citizens fairly. Citizens should be kept happy whenever possible. Leisure activities will be encouraged, most vices ignored, and a level of social welfare will be provided. Unemployment shall be kept as close to zero percent as possible via public works programs and military service.

Long term goals would be expansion, absorption of friendly neighbors, destruction of hostile neighbors, and building stability for the state through civilian infrastructure and civil institutions.

"Society will not be rebuilt. It shall be built anew."

Given that this is the post-apocalypse, producing pharmaceuticals, GMOs and aircraft would be part of very long term goals right?

What about religion? Surely some people would look towards faith to stay positive. Hell, some may eve start their own religion.

That will be after boot camp of course. Criminals could opt out of conscription if they so choose, but that will require a harsher prison sentence of labor. At least in the military they retain some individual freedom, as opposed to none.

>>11198
GMO's would be a very long term goal. Initial aircraft would be exceedingly simple single-seat propeller aircraft, so they'd probably be available in very small numbers within two decades.

Pharmaceuticals would actually be a high priority goal. Penicillin, ether, opioids, and aspirin would be priorities. Vaccines would be researched if possible, but until they're availability, quarantines will be used for any outbreak of dangerous, infective diseases. Producing these medications will be expensive and a drain on our resources, but the payoff would be worth it if they can all be manufactured.
At the very least, penicillin will be the highest priority.

As for religion, the state will be entirely secular. People can believe whatever they want, but they will receive no special treatment for their religions. Religions shall be prohibited from violating civil rights of others.

Walk away. Abdicate. Leave these people with a George Washington-esque farewell speech and go live in the trees. Never look back. Anyone that entrusts one person to rebuild civilization is asking for the same problems inherent in the civilization before and thusly doesn't need me anymore, because they never learned from history. Cannot personally stand to live it again.

a confederation of govenors, every so much territory like a county in the united states would have a govenor. the govenor has total controll over his/her domain. they would only answer to the fuhrer, the emporer of the whole country. the govenors would act as represenatives for there county, and if 2/3 of them can agree, then they could even overpower the fuhrer. all govenors would require to give taxes to the fuhrer either in money "resources" or labor "military", or technology "high intellegnce rate, a collage, or a great inventor". under this type of system i could reach all the goals and focuses. but the main would be to rebuild a perfect world that culturally has giant value on empathy, and humanity, and charity. if i could get a single county to do this then that society is closer to the next step in human evolution.

Any single person put in the position of power will very quickly fuck anyone gets close.
that's not a euphemism either, it's a biological survival mechanism for alpha males and all that.

your best bet is to create groups of 20-50 people to control certain areas through a TRUE democratic process, (True democracy=everyone has an equal vote on everything that concerns them (Unlike the current democracy which is A vote per person, every 4 years. ))
You then have the main group which is basically all of the other groups combined under one name.
One name to represent a hundred groups to represent a thousand people.

Any movement towards the democratic process we have currently will be met with the individuals being removed from the group and having to fend for themselves.

i understand your conscern. the govenors would be eplemented as an early system of goverment like frace during the middle ages. its not perfect by any means but it has proven in history to work. but yes the govenors will be dicks for the first and second generations. after that point the alterative culture change would be in effect. and you might ask how would i get this done. its simple. moral education from birth. in every county there would be a main fort or town. in the fort there is a boarding school from 2 or 3 till like 8 where kids learn to speak then to be nice then read and do basic math. after such the kids get split up into either higher education for the smarter kids. job training for average kids. for the dumber kids the will start physical training for the army or laboring if we are at peace.

This is the part I romanticize the most with in terms of post-apocalypse.

First of all, we'd start small. I've always thought a hospital would make a good place for rebuilding society. Why? They're usually tall buildings, with multiple rooms. You've got a dozen rooms originally designed for patients that can house one or two individuals. You've got a lobby, you've got a stairwell and elevator, you've got waiting rooms, etc. There's plenty of personal space, there's plenty of organizational space, there's plenty of recreational space. Not to mention, they're tall and you can oversee the land. It'd be like Tenpenny Tower in Fallout, except as a hospital.

So, we'd hold up in a hospital, and begin to fence in the compound. We'd allow for plenty of space to do gardening, mechanics, etc. On top of that, we'd attempt to grow stuff on the roof of the hospital, because you're going to get the most sunlight and protection. We'd also set up a rain collection system on the roof.

How would it be run? Socialistic at first, communistic eventually. Everyone would discover their own innate abilities, put those to use in the best method, and receive in proportion to how much they contribute. A person slacks off? Bye, you're ass is out the gates. Eventually we'd expand our reach, to the surrounding buildings and such.

Since I'd be the founder, I'd draft a constitution of sorts. As I said, it would be Socialistic at first, then Communist. So, no private property ownership, etc. On top of that, I'd make the law quite simple: If someones actions don't affect you, mind your business. If they do, they need your consent, and if they continue to act you have the right to defend yourself appropriately; it's the duty of every member to protect and aid in putting an end to this type of unconsented activity. So, things would be quite simple. Nothing would be too complicated. No name for settlement, no flag, none of that bullshit. I just want to be the founder, maybe a bit of a leader, but I want the people to be in control with my constitution guiding them. There'd be council meetings where everyone competent enough would discuss and make plans and there'd be votes.

Pic related, the hospital in my city that I'd eventually found my settlement on.

highly doubtful we could survive.

because the majority of people to survive would be those who have been armed.
thinking about the government losing power.
it will just be a power shift from a government that fucks us, to a load of republicans with guns and a hate for those who are different than them.

pretty sure they would have the upperhand to rebuild.
and anyone not them will be pillaged raped and have their things taken from them.

Honestly, most ancient and small populated societes were fairly democratic. Not modern democracy, that's bullshit. I'd actually like to see some freemen tribal democracy going. We elect leaders, they only go away with popular votes, every adult gets a vote, every major action requires a vote.
If people have problems with an action, they can come and rally the people against it. Why do I say this? A system like this forces people to be active in politics and makes it a central part of organizing life. It's this kind of society that gave birth to Greece and its fuckawesome philosophy and all these nice scientific things we should be grateful for.
The only thing is that production should be as socialized as possible, landed nobilities are never, never good for a nation.

Farming has to be number one priority, armies march on their bellies, logistics win wars, well fed people breed and rebuild, etc... A good situation in the "countryside" gives a nation the muscle they need to overpower.
Other concern has to be education/technology. Knowledge is power, a well educated, critic and objective society will create innovations and be crafty enough to be superior to the scavenging barbarians that would probably dominate such a world.

Basically saying, I'd vouch for a democratic, eudaimonic, civilized but with tribal aspects societies. Think of a mix between Greek Poleis and North-American Indigenous Confederations.

Mah nigga, I actually wrote this before I read that post. I'm thinking something very similar.

Good idea for a thread. Makes you think.

I'd go with a tribal type society depending on the damage, the size of our population, and our isolation. I'm thinking like 20 million survivors worldwide maybe less so I'm probably going more extreme than you guys with this example. I think out of necessity we might form a tribal society its just our nature. Its only a recent phenomena where we live in towns that we know nobody. Through most of history communities were very close because they depended on one another much like tribes. I think people in modern society often forget how much we depend on one another for survival. That's how you get that idea of being a lone survivor in the apocalypse whereas really you'd probably just be dead.

Not trying to perpetuate the idea of the noble savage or anything, I honestly think this would be the best route for society in the event of an apocalypse. I'm more about the community being close rather than any political shit or what buzzwords we're going to label the society but it would certainly be democratic especially with our modern sensibilities.

We've been raised in a consumer individualist society that is very different from the type of society that I think would best deal with this situation. If you took our ancestors from a purely hunter gatherer society and transported them to that scenario you'd find that they wouldn't really blink at a post apocalyptic world because for them there would be no civilization to crumble and they already had a group of the tightest knit people you can put together. They would just do what they'd been doing forever.

We might be too spoiled or too scared. We've civilized ourselves to the point of weakness. The idea of cultures becoming so civilized they get weak is certainly nothing new. We'd probably be somewhat self destructive at first because you'd be joining a group of people together who are not like a tribe at first, they're not actually a community yet, they're just a bunch of people who are there out of necessity. What happens is looking out for only you often comes at the cost of preserving a group which in a real harsh time can be the difference between living or dying.

Disunity kills tribes. I think any small group would be egalitarian in that situation. What you would quickly find works is what has worked for hunter gatherer tribes. You share food, water, property, and everything else essential to survival out of necessity because that is what it takes to hold your society together. Don't want people to think its "communist" because its really not there wouldn't be some written in stone "no property" the group would just look out for each other, its really just common sense and decency not some political ideology.

You also wouldn't want to raise any single persons too high over the group as it would create conflict, though I think its almost inevitable especially with our modern cultures.

As it got bigger obviously we can look to history to see what direction we naturally start to head in and we'd probably need to form a more formal government of some sort. I think the real problems concerning political systems and governments come when everything gets easy. At first you'd be focused on just staying alive and keeping your group together.

It comes back as quickly as it goes, though. Only on moments of extreme danger to basic needs will humans ignore the moralities their cultures gave to them. I'd say a couple years at most of wild shit then people are start banding together again.

Most "tribal warlords" were actually elected by a group of amongst the bigger families in a tribe, this conception of dictatorial tribes is purely eurocentrism. In fact, more authoritharian governing styles are flat out impossible without a strong state force to opress and censor its population, that's why there was a lot of heresy and witchcraft in the Middle Ages when it was officially forbidden.

Honestly the only form of government I'd want to install is a government that exists to maintain things like roads and shit and have not really a police force to stop people from doing things against another's consent. Basically all laws are kind of based on consent you want to fight someone? That guy has to agree to the fight or else you will be in trouble. Basically don't be an asshole and respect others.

We only thing chaos will come from anarchy because governments' have taken away people's self control because the fear of penalty of laws replaced actually not being a douche to people.

This was enjoyable.

My group's settlement is called The Ark and will be a Meritocracy. My title will be The Finder because my duty, delight and privilege is to seek survivors, human, animal and technological. The flag is an orange Phoenix on white, the symbolism is obvious.

We will preserve Earth and Knowledge (technology), focusing on Defense and Education of all survivors who cooperate.

We will have no single base of operations. "The Ark" will be a settlement that is more conceptual strategy than temporal location. A stable base of operations may exist initially but our goal will be to build many stable bases of operations, as many as possible until The Ark is either destroyed as an organization or we cover the entire Earth.

We will gather as many pieces of human technology, history, religion, writing, art etc as we can find in any given area and seek to restore them, learn about them and teach others about these things, hoping the knowledge will spark creative new forms of agriculture, industry, morality etc. Rather than stockpiling these artifacts in one massive library, we will develop an action plan for finding other settlements and constructing fortified knowledge centers, capable of preserving artifacts, studying them and communicating with other knowledge centers about them. Wherever we go we will teach people to respect, preserve and learn from the surrounding ecology so they can learn from it.

Our military philosophy will be one of swift movement and minimalism when traveling. We will treat hostility with death, defensive paranoia with offers of knowledge and abuse with punishment. Our soldiers will be trained as snipers, archers and rocketeers who specialize in seeing a hostile target and eliminating it before they know what hit them. Our weakness, military fortifications, will be just the kind of people we will be looking to protect rather than fight so our military strategy is optimized.

Just in case though, we will work hard to develop and reawaken use of signals intelligence technology that was lost after the apocalypse to see where our long ranged eyes cannot and hear what goes on behind fortified walls.

Eventually we want to have functional military aircraft to make quick strikes on despots, marauders and zealots which threaten any settlement requesting help. An electronic grid will also be a primary goal, with satellite support and a budding space program intent on a very, very long term terraforming project of the Moon which we will use to inspire all settlements toward a better vision of humanity than had ever existed in its ruined past.

Sorry we're late, Submarine travel always gets tricky around these gulfs.

Hello! Welcome to the Community of Happy Cephalopods! We live in large underwater skyscrapers that act as functioning islands.. kinda like icebergs, so we're a nomadic oceanic culture that strives on trade, fishing, self preservation and community.

Of course to keep such a technological feat running we need smart educated people to be ready and willing to solve engineering feats we might have., We're always renovating, adding and sharing what we have with others. We also need things like nylon cloth, aluminum, wood, silicon and silly putty.

We live on a system of temporary property ownership known as mutualism. People can take some submarines or boats as they please, but they gotta use'em . We got plenty of rooms and storage space, underwater farms, gigantic turbines that harness the power of the ocean storing the energy in large salt-cells.

It's basically a system of mutual respect, we work together and our culture dictates that we don't hoard anything and generally share it within the communities. The only forms of official government are the keepers of silly putty, who are known to be quite pernicious relationships regarding this rare and pleasant resource.
