Only the cookie-cutter, HOA controlled, high density Burbs.

Those of us in Burbs that are bordering on Rural have a bit more backbone than that...

“Safe” supermarkets and other stores will be robbed in brazen commando-like gang attacks.

Some of the MUYs will have military training, but lots of other people do, and I don't suspect the coordination will be there on the part of the MUYs to pull too many of these off.... what with counter-response and advance preparation.

Yep, sadly, that will happen over and over.

Some will actively seek ethnic cleansing of their areas, and will target those of other races, even if they are attempting to forge alliances.

Seek out like-minded individuals. Have and develop useful skills.

Amen. I hope that I go down in history as a forgotten crank who was full of baloney.

Easier said than done. The internet and television will also spread the news at the speed of light.

Thanks for posting. Any Matt Bracken piece deserves our attention. This article reminds me to stock up on foodstuffs, buy more ammo and perhaps another weapon.

Governments would be formed at the street level.

First the block.
Second the subdivision or group of common streets.
Then the municipality which might not be at all like the old municipality.

Americans place high trust in others and it will play out to our benefit in times of stress.

I have been in two disasters and everyone cooperated with each other. Others came in from long distances to help. This is how it will happen, as it has happened before because that is part of our self definition of the nature of being “American”.

The new governments would be formed within 30 minutes of understanding the real situation. “Charlie, we need this can you do it?”.”Sure, let me get Tom to give me a hand”.
That is a government.

Actually, in this case, easier done than said. Axe (to use the parlance of the MUYs) CodeToad if you don't believe me. It takes a good deal of effort to keep mobile networks up.

The internet is another story. That was designed by DARPA to survive nuclear war.

I agree, but that wouldn’t stop near-universal rioting of the Gimmee Class.

They have full cell coverage in Mogadishu in the middle of battles. And they have full coverage across Afghanistan.

The govt can shut down some exchanges, but it will be spotty at best.

After reading this I can’t help, but think of this quote which many of you know is one of my favorites in regards to preparedness:

“Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Siege of AR-558 (#7.8)” (1998)

Quark: “Let me tell you something about Hew-mons, Nephew. They’re a wonderful, friendly people, as long as their bellies are full and their holosuites are working. But take away their creature comforts, deprive them of food, sleep, sonic showers, put their lives in jeopardy over an extended period of time and those same friendly, intelligent, wonderful people... will become as nasty and as violent as the most bloodthirsty Klingon. You don’t believe me? Look at those faces. Look in their eyes.”

Clearly there’s a storm coming, as great as a hurricane and like you do when a hurricane comes your way you either prepare to weather it or you become a victim of it.

For those who are just starting or are old hands at prepping you may find my Preparedness Manual helpfull. You can download it at:

http://tomeaker.com/kart/Preparedness1j.pdf

NOTE! THIS IS A FREE DOWNLOAD. I DO NOT MAKE ONE CENT OFF MY PREPAREDNESS MANUAL!

For those of you who haven’t started already it’s time to prepare almost past time maybe. You needed to be stocking up on food guns, ammo, basic household supplies like soap, papergoods, cleaning supplies, good sturdy clothes including extra socks, underwear and extra shoes and boots, a extra couple changes of oil and filters for your car, tools, things you buy everyday start buying two and put one up.

As the LDS say “When the emergency is upon us the time for preparedness has past.”

Or as the bible says: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
NIV Proverbs 22:3

“There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger.
Underestimation can be fatal.”

I believe enough people will organize an underground bounty reward system that would reward vigilantes to travel to the areas known to harbor gangs.

law of the Wild West when the sheriff could be days away applies.

If the police are unavailable or too slow rewards will be available to ordinary people who can react faster.

They would be too busy trying to get food and water to riot.

I just don’t think we have that level of threat from our welfare classes.
