Message Subject What is the Worst State(s) to be in When TSHTF?

Re the Japanese, I've heard most positive things about how they handled themselves in villages during WW2. There was little theft, I guess from social pressure. Today is another story entirely since the folks of that time actually grew food. They are known to be scupulously honest about a found wallet, and I'd imagine that things may be better in some ways, but there's no getting around the incredibly dense population and lack of drinking water with no utilities. Fukushima made the whole nation poisoned, and that's the worst aspect of being there.

The Amish and the Mennonites live all over the place, even in places like Mexico. Check your state, and I'll bet there are some somewhere less than two hours from you. Since they won't and don't protect themselves now, they have people steal from them, and only if county sheriffs are vigilant are they protected at all. They won't sue people in court either, so they really will be preyed upon.

They're not welcoming to strangers, though of course many work by carpentry in people's homes under contract. They prefer to live apart (Romans 12:2), and a flood into their regions is to be expected and no doubt will cause violence, mostly to them as they have farms and livestock in isolated areas.

Weren't a bunch of amish recently arrested for beard dismemberment. I guess shunning only goes so far then the scissors come out.

Yes. It's extremely rare, practicaly unheard of, but no telling what happens within different isolated communities. They are pure pacifists, and won't defend themselves.

It's highly unlikely they would welcome anyone into their communities that were sojourners. The arrival of outsiders would be considered something of a terrible outside influence. Those refugees would be impossible for them to control. I expect for sociopathic people to deliberately mount attacks upon them since they have everything they need: isolation, farmland, livestock, homes, tools, etc.
