    I've seen too many movies of this genre...and our own history (dark ages)....
    90% chance that we would all be dead...and for what ???
    Still, I'd try to do all possible to survive, including killing.
    For what? It'd provide me with a new form of entertainment. It'd be a fun social experiment I'd like to witness with my own eyes.

    Not at all costs, no, but certainly in the face of anarchy.

The survivalist stay locked in a steel shuttered house filled with food and water and watch the world around them collapse in riots, rape robbery and murder. I just started the book and it may have a happy ending but it makes me wonder if things got that bad would I even want to survive. So I ask the question of you guys, survive or die, which is preferable?

    By the way James has an interesting survival blog. SurvivalBlog.com
    Why is James Wesley Rawles a "Patriot"?

    To give up and die is easy, and has no honor.

    The fight to survive takes strength and conviction.
