I'll start with this one.
I have seen the end of the world quite a few times now. Iraq, Afghanistan, The Balkans and a few other places I'm NaLTS. If you check out some of my posts here you'll get the gist of it. Each and every time I've seen it, I've witnessed desperation, fear and hatred rapidly followed by enormous amount of violence. I'll not get too detailed, but I am no stranger to self same violence.
The people who saw it coming and organized, or even just braced for it fared much better.
Here in the first world we are inoculated against the brutal realities of strife. I hope to help prepare as many as possible for the inevitable fall of society, either locally, regionally or world wide. I'd much rather look the fool for having prepared for naught, than to look the fool for not having prepared.
