I know that everybody preps for scenario 2 because, let's face it, guns and ammo and abandoned building are way more fun than surveillance and wage-slavery

But really it feels like scenario 1 is what "post-apocalyptic" looks more like in today's context. how the fuck do you prepare for *that*?

Scenario 1.
I try to cultivate a few criminal skills
I try to stay off the grid as much as is practical.
I enable activists and reformists by passing on information and manuals with the means to enact action
I try to disseminate security culture
Try to maintain activist and/or criminal contacts who could provide transport, fake ID, or sundries made controlled by a cultural shift or government crackdown
Keep abreast of legal rights, support political action that tries to maintain such.
Try to set aside funds for emergencies, for provision, bail, kickbacks, etc, in a way that cannot be frozen by banks. Hopefully in a form that cannot be deprecated.

Scenario 2.
Try to keep enough bulk food in the larder to last an emergency
Stay cognisant of emergency response and follow current emergencies
try to cultivate survival skills and acquire suitable tools
Try to educate loved ones in correct emergency response
Network with neighbours, friends and family in case of protracted emergency or need to resettle.
Work to organise Bug Out Bag, Bug In Bag, I'm Never Coming Home bag, Bug Out Vehicle, Every Day Carry, etc.

A problem is diabetes medication. I can only get it on prescription, and I can only get one box at a time. So if SHTF, either politically or generally, I'll be dependant on black market drugs if I have to go underground or if the medical system is disrupted.

Also in this country weapons are illegal. Any kind of weapon. So I'm stuck with camping gear or tools that can serve as improvised weapons, and God help me if anyone has a firearm and decides to fuck with me, which would be criminals and police, the two groups I'm most worried about, and thanks to our laws, the only armed groups.
I'm good with blades and impact weapons, but I'm thinking of taking up archery. It's better than nothing.

I'd probably just do what I'm doing now: embrace political apathy, find a cozy job or do freelance work, find a trashy apartment in neo-tokyo, deal dissociatives on the side (because dissociatives are the most dystopian drug), spend excess money on cool future tech like virtual reality and superdrugs, join a cult for spiritual fulfillment, and listen to trap music until the impending singularity


you have been sent to the gulag

After reading this I realize we're likely living in something similar to this. I feel like we're in the precursor stage to heavy-cyberpunk. Like the weird fashions and holographic shit you see in the movies. Blade Runner, Ghost in the Shell ect.

Have a feeling most of us are going to be pretty old by then..

That, or the world will look like children of men.

I think i've been gradually realizing that "the apocolypse" has already happened. This is the new world, the old one is dead. Big brother is here and he's real and in your pocket. The president is a satire. The climate changed already. The mass-extinction started a while ago.

We are super fucking dead. I remember the apocalypse.

so a true post apocalyptic world is one where we are all ghosts...
