RULE OF 4 AND RULE OF 7
RULE OF 4:
In an emergency when the lights are out, when there is no food and almost no clean water, when there is no cop on the corner, when there is no 9-1-1 to call for help, when there is no information about what is going on, when there is no light at the end of the tunnel- IN 4 DAYS YOUR NEIGHBORS BECOME DANGEROUS AND SO DOES EVERYONE ELSE YOU ENCOUNTER.
RULE OF 7:
By Day 7 of an emergency scenario, with all the conditions of the Rule of 4, YOUR NEIGHBORS BECOME KILLERS!!!
THIS IS AS SERIOUS AS A HEART ATTACK, IF YOU HAD NO FRESH WATER, NO FOOD, NO POWER; IF YOUR CHILDREN WERE CRYING AND THERE WAS NO WATER TO GIVE THEM, EXCEPT FOR THE WATER OUT OF YOUR TOILET BOWL, WHAT WOULD YOU DO TO GIVE THEM WATER? ANSWER- ANYTHING! HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO TO SUPPLY YOUR LOVED ONES WITH FOOD, WATER, MEDICAL CARE, ETC? YOUR NEIGHBORS, FRIENDS, STRANGERS- ARE NO DIFFERENT. THEY WILL KILL, LOOT, OR STEAL TO SUPPLY THEIR NEEDS AT THE EXPENSE OF YOUR LIFE, JUST TO SAVE THEIR OWN LIFE. OR THE LIVES OF THEIR FAMILY!
IGNORE THIS AT YOUR OWN PERIL- YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT!
REMEMBER THE RULE OF 4 AND THE RULE OF 7!!!!
People often say that they would never resort to violence, looting or shooting in an emergency because they think they are somehow “better than that” or have been “raised better” or they are morally superior somehow. We call B/S on this because no matter what you or anybody thinks right now- how you will behave, react, and respond to stress, violence, threats, starvation and dehydration in a true SHTF emergency scenario is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT than how you think you will. Unless you are a combat veteran, a police officer, fire fighter, or EMT/Paramedic who have encountered high-stress situations with blood & guts galore and the threat of death imminent, then you cannot know how you or your family or even your neighbors will react when presented with a scenario where their lives may end due to violence, no food, no water, or no medical treatment.
If you want to overcome some of the initial shock that occurs, you and your family must prepare now and practice what you prepare! Everyone should be involved in storing food and water, learning first aid skills, learning self-defense and use of weapons properly, and learn what to do when a threat occurs. Practice, practice, practice. The age-old adage even applies to Preppers & Survivalists.
WE DON’T ADVOCATE VIOLENCE (EXCEPT IN SELF-DEFENSE), BUT THIS POST IS TO REMIND YOU THAT OTHERS MAY WISH TO USE VIOLENCE AGAINST YOU OR YOUR FAMILY IN A SHTF SCENARIO. KEEP THAT IN MIND AT ALL TIMES.
