SHTF prep - community prep or solo?
Two schools of thought here -

1. Preparing with family, friends, and neighbors means more food, more medicine, more guns, more ammo, and cooperation in the post-shtf world. More people prepping mean greater odds of survival.

2. OPSEC. If people know you have the goods they will come to your house, kill you and your family, and take your goods.

You are probably better off in a group, unless the opposing force is much larger, Then it is easier to go it alone or with just a few.
Here is a good read about a Japanese soldier who managed to evade and stay alive 29 years after ww-2 because he didn't know the war ended.

If you plan to stay in suburbia your done. How do you have a garden and chickens and stuff that you would need to carry on. You can only store so much food. You would need the whole town to be in line.Neiborhoods will not work because ther are to many whom will not do or have anything ready when the time comes which makes eveyone else sitting ducks. You better have a gun and lots of ammo. Read the book ONE SECOND AFTER. IT IS A MUST READ. It will open your eyes to think not though of before and believe me there are lots and lots. Everyone should read this book and I mean everyone and quick.

Depends on where you live. For me its just the wife and I. Too many brain dead sheep in suburbia... Fuck em.
Here is a list of 8 things to look for when trying to identify false flag psychological operations.
1. Staged events usually receive immediate national news coverage
2. There is a political agenda behind the coverage (gun control)
3. The incident inspires intense emotions (Dead kids)
4. Initial media reports conflict eyewitness accounts
5. No dead bodies are shown to the public
6. Celebrities are used to influence the public
7. Presence of mainstream media manipulation tactics
8. The Federal Government give attention to a local story

Question Everything.

When any institution is infiltrated by liberals, that institution no longer serves it's original purpose and instead becomes a social engineering vehicle to push a far left fascist agenda. Liberty and liberals are like oil and water.

The caloric requirements for a family of four for two months:
Based upon a higher than normal amount of work and having fudge factor ( a high estimation given children could be younger)

2500 calories x 4 people x 60 day minimum =600,000 calories

While anyone who is altruistic or spiritual or both would like to provide for a community, it's not realistically possible.

Few people on the frontier could have made it alone. The mass movement out West succeeded as a result of specialization, but all of them had basic agrarian and hunting/gathering skills. Few societies can live without teachers, healers, craftsmen (like wheelwrights or blacksmiths), soldiers, artisans, spiritual leaders, etc.

This means after a bad scenario, then the community will come back together by necessity in order to improve security, repel invaders, and food and water sources.

A long long time ago, in the US rather than have food stamps, the government had a commodities program, and surplus food produced by farming operations(many family owned) was purchased in bulk and this was distributed to the impoverished. It would be entirely possible and beneficial for our society to do something like that versus food stamps (now electronic transfers). That money goes to corporations, many of whom purchase those food items from world wide suppliers.

I can easily see in the event of an emergency, a return to large scale farming operations in order to feed people, a chilling idea that the former USSR tried to implement. Such agricultural "camps" might occur in the aftermath. It's entirely plausible. Governmental intervention is always terrible.

Re: SHTF prep - community prep or solo?
We have been following method 2. We have friendly neighbors, but we maintain OPSEC when it comes to this. One of my uncles and his family are also preppers though and are conspiracy minded. They live in the country and are all outdoors minded, are great hunters, and have a lot of farmland around them. They are way better off than me, as I live in a suburb with no land except my own backyard.

I am on very good terms with one of my neighbors, but don't know much at all about the rest of the people that live around me. So I maintain OPSEC.
