Honestly now.. Everyone in here talks tough about what will happen to those who come to take what you have. In all reality, you won't know until it happens.
Go it alone or with a group and you will find that there is ALWAYS someone out there who is meaner, stronger and more violent than you can imagine.
So what. You have a dozen rifles and two dozen hand guns, big deal. You will NEVER have the ammo of friends to defend it.
I can only shoot one gun at a time, how about you?
I ha e also gazed upon the true evil that man can perpetrate against man, against that is what you will need to overcome.
Let me guess... He wouldn't be someone you'd want in "your" group.
Well guess what, he's welcome in mine!
I wouldn't mind having him in my group though, especially if we run into a gang that wants to challenge us to a strategy game. Although, I'm not sure World of Warcraft servers will be up and running during the apocalypse.
It appears that we have two groups involved in this topic.
One group watched the videos to try and learn something.
The other group are the "homey" haters who dismissed this mans videos as some kind of "gang banger" mentality, aka the "black crowd" who are ignorant and just want to "gank" everyone's stuff.
It's actually amazing that it is so apparent as to who are racist and who are not.
It's sad too because he has valid points to consider, just didn't come from a white guy though so who care!
Truth is most of us wouldn't survive, prepared or not. The odds are stacked against us and there will be no second chances. Those that do should thank plain dumb luck.

I believe he does have a point. I listen regularly to a podcast called the gunrunner in stitcher, and he brought up this exact point in one episode. You'll need to get together with your neighboors and set up some kind of perimeter defense, and get organized if something mayor happens. I know most of my immediate neighboors are pretty well prepared and are like minded on this issue.
You're wrong, but nice try.
Nailed it on the "not my cup of tea" though...
Anyone, regardless of race, who claims that in times of strife that "your stuff will be my stuff" is drinking that same kool-aid.
I'm not gonna come right out and call you a race-baiter, but in my view you are both walking and quacking like a duck...
Good day sir!

Only watched about 5 minutes of video 1 before I stopped. But from the discussion, he did make some valid points to consider, as have many of the posters on this thread. Long term, I won't be staying in place in my current location in a SHTF scenario as described. My family will be bugging out to an undisclosed location. Will the location hold up to a big gang as described? That would depend on their desperation and dedication to their attack after they start getting attacked.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
The printed word carries a "tone" to it. If you can't read and understand the tone behind it, I am sorry.
There was not any race baiting. I only pointed out the"tone" of some of the posters.
A lot can be learned if you read between the lines, you only have to "look" for it.
Back to the topic at hand, yes? We will all be tone-deaf, yes?
Chickens (layers) are pretty low maintenance for a steady source of protein, and I have heard rabbits are pretty easy, although I have no personal experience with same.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
