How to Plan for the Worst-Case Scenario
This may sound like a no-brainer, but it’s easy to overlook. You need to have a plan for what you will do in a worst-case scenario where the dollar becomes absolutely worthless.
That means no dollars to buy things with. That probably also means no oil, no natural gas, no electricity.
Assume that all the natural resources you depend on every day are cut off. Then figure out how you will live without them, at least for a while, until everything works its way out.
This is how you prepare for catastrophe. You anticipate what might happen and prepare a plan for how to deal with it.
It doesn’t mean the catastrophe will happen… or that it will happen in the way you imagine it will… but at least you won’t get caught flat-footed, as so many unsuspecting Americans will.
Do you have relatives in town or a different state? How will you communicate with them? Will you join forces by living together… to protect each other and take advantage of economies of scale?
What about entertainment… or otherwise occupying yourself when you have nothing else to do? If TV is no longer available, what will you do? Do you have books to read? Some board games to play? Can you play a physical instrument? Do you even have a physical instrument that can be played?
I apologize if my questions seem too extreme. They are simply the questions you need to ask to be as prepared as possible.
Earlier I mentioned the possibility of a nuclear attack in the near future. Such an event would certainly upset the entire world, and could be the catalyst that sends America down the road to economic destruction.
In the case of a nuclear attack, no matter where on earth it happens, you will want to be prepared. How? By getting a supply of potassium iodate tablets.
In nuclear fall-out, it is of utmost importance that you protect your thyroid. It absorbs radiation quickly. To prevent that, you take potassium iodate tablets. These flood your thyroid with non-radioactive iodine so it cannot absorb the radioactive junk floating around in the air.
I purchased a supply for my family, plus a little extra, back in 2008. I purchased the tablets at CampingSurvival.com. You can read their article about potassium iodate and buy some of your own here.
Don’t be scared. Be prepared.
