Venezuela – Lessons Learned From A Societal Collapse
Every day we get real life examples of why it’s important to be prepared – be a prepper! Maybe it’s a flood, tornado or earthquake, but each one teaches us what and how we should be preparing. Hopefully, you’ve analysed and prioritized which dangers you face and have or are preparing accordingly.
Rarely though, do we get a glimpse of what a total societal collapse looks like. Sadly, for the citizens, Venezuela is providing that insight. The Atlantic gives us an even more citizen level view of what ordinary Venezuelans are going through.
America and the UK, where I live, are far from collapsing and hopefully never will but, we’d be foolish not to study and learn from what’s happening in Venezuela. If you live in Scotland like I do, you really need to study and prepare, because the socialist SNP will take Scotland down the same failed socialist path.
The folks over at the Organic Prepper, have studied the societal breakdown in Venezuela, and have come up with their list of things you should stock up on. It’s a comprehensive list and you’d do well to stock up on these supplies. One thing I’d highlight though, is something The Patriot Nurse is passionate about – disease.
I’m sure we’re all familiar with the “3’s of survival” – 3 minutes without air, 3 days without water and 3 weeks without food – and we’re stocking up on supplies. The Patriot Nurse points out that, the number one killer AFTER a societal collapse, is disease. What’s happening in Venezuela bears that out as mortality rates sky-rocket. So don’t give short shift to cleaning supplies, disinfectants and medical supplies for it doesn’t take long for things to start running out. How long? Here’s an infographic that shows in detail how long things will last.
