No one can prep for their nation going socialist, except for having an escape plan. This is especially true since socialism works for a while, until the stocks of products made under a market system are depleted. The government will pass anti-hoarding laws. Maybe you can hide your cache. Maybe you can’t. Maybe just the smell of cooking food coming from your home will tip off a hungry neighbor.
I’ve known a lot of people over the years who escaped from communist nations in the 80s. They were from Poland, Czechoslovakia, Romania, East Germany, and Cuba. Prepping to stay in the communist state is not a viable option. Prepping your escape route is the only solution.
If you plan to stay, the best prep is to be a loyal Party Member with a position of authority in the Party.

There's too many of us to leave - best plan is to stop 'home grown' communists from taking over the country.
If you were a jew in Germany in the late thirties, what were the options? First your business(livelihood) is taken away from you and then your house and real estate. so you convert your wealth to jewelry and paintings and you group up with others to survive. Then you can’t leave the country with your wealth, you might without it though. Then you can’t leave under any condition. Then they work you to death and extract the gold from your teeth.
If you are a German what are your options? Stand up to Hitler and be killed. Go underground and fight the situation but then others are going to die for what you do. Shut up and survive you think, but then you go to war and are killed.
It does not end well for anyone except those that left EARLY.
Had a friend in the UK who escaped East Germany. Left all his family behind for a better life. Hid in the woods to escape the guards. He was working on his Master’s Degree in Yorkshire.

Well said. That is so true.
Where do you think you will run to? Be able to run to? Even get to? You will not be followed? Where you are going is totally isolated? If nearby isolationist may be tempted to attach a fellow isolationist for whatever purpose, how will you fare there? The runners have difficult problems as well.
Escape to where?
Enviously looking in on the U.S.A. from England right now, I have to say there is nowhere else. The U.S.A. represents the last place of freedom on this planet. If there’s to be a last stand, it will be with you. It’s all on you guys, I wish I could help.
Bump for later
