  1. Another great video CP! Once again, you’ve got me thinking.

    I’ve had to start looking at my preps in a different light now that my oldest daughter will be going to college next fall, because my plans revolved around having her here. Now, not only do I have to worry about how she’ll manage (preps for her apartment), I’ll have one less person in my “community”.

  2. I’d be surprised if movie/book writers don’t scour CP’s channel for ideas . Dude goes deep into what we do when SHTF

  3. Cities will perish first, from anarchy, riots, gangs, mobs, and the fact that 98 % of city dwellers have been born to live off luxuries & the grid. Those homesteaders like us who live in remote wilderness areas on farms will survive. Some of us know how to make alcohol, we know how to make biodiesel, we heat our homes with wood, keep food in storage cellars or preserves, We already have the skills to Hunt, fish, live off the land, grow vegetables, live off livestock, live off the grid with solar systems, get our water from wells, etc. to many the grid dissapearing would not make any difference in the main way of life. Those few who manage to survive the cities and venture out to where we are will generally die from starvation, lack of skills, mental failure, or be killed by heavily armed homesteaders when they try to trespass against us.

  4. Group dynamics and dynamic groups are interesting. They can produce. They can consume. They can do both simultaneously. We call this our p/c ratio predictors. With a +p/c- you have abundance and growth. With a -p/c+ you have scarcity and decline. Like any other “swarm” you have pure C+.

    C+ swarms die-off/dissipate relatively quickly due to two main factors. Exhaustion of resources and exhaustion of participants. These factors are represented in our CfR (Competition for Resources) analysis. We have found that, contrary to popular belief, it is not the supply of (lack of) resources that matters (has the greater impact) as much as it is the deadly results of the “competition” itself.

    In full swarm you can reliably expect to lose people faster than you do resources. Normally you may have two individuals fighting over a can of peaches. One individual prevails and eats the peaches. Seems rather obvious. However, our more counterintuitive findings suggest that, more often than one might expect, both individuals succumb to their inflicted injuries and perish, …leaving that can of peaches sitting there unmolested.

    The main point being that, …even if this is the result of only one in fifteen encounters (which appears to be accurate) the irreversible trend still rears its head. And each loss of participant reduces the consumption of the resources. But, not the perceived demand. So, the competition continues unabated. Reducing participants faster than resources.

    In most cases, the swarm eventually stops being a swarm right after crossing a point of ratio reversal. In its wake, the competition has left remaining far more resources than competitors.

    The ability to “wait it out” is paramount. And, keep in mind that these remaining individuals, these surviving competitors, are the most dangerous of the original group. This is when and where a potential “leader” can assume control. One who speaks their language and can direct them to continue to do what they have already demonstrated that they do best. Under that new leadership they can become a +p/c- group focused on expansion, growth, territory, …etc.

    We’ve spent far too many years studying this crap. I’m almost getting sick of it. Almost! Lol.
