While the wilderness survival skills certainly can’t hurt, it will be empathy, generosity, and courage that we need to survive. Kindness and fairness will be more valuable than any survival skill..We will have to work together. We will have to grow food, educate ourselves, and give people a reason to persevere..Humans evolved attributes such as generosity, altruism, and cooperation because we need them to survive.

@amphetamine one thing they say in earthquake prep classes is: "your equipment stash isn't what saves your life. It's your neighbor"

This is why one of the best things you can do to prep for disaster or collapse is get to know your physically proximate neighbors
