We already have the local podiatrist (our only MD in the group) and her husband (even though he is a lawyer, yuck), so we were talking about approaching a local dentist and his wife. We know that his wife gardens and that he’s close friends with one of our members and seems like a good choice.


    Someone mentioned the head of maintenance for one of the local colleges. He seems like a good candidate with a wealth of knowledge, he is a hunter, plumber and electrician with years of experience. But then I mentioned that he would be unlikely to survive any long period of time without medication or advanced medical care because he is so badly out of shape. We talked awhile and agreed that he and his wife’s medication burden would probably make them a drain on our shared resources and that they would be unlikely to survive for a few weeks without, insulin, blood pressure, heart, cholesterol (those were just ones that we knew of) and other medications. We know he considers himself a survivalist and that he has a supply of MRE’s and guns, but we doubt he has enough heart medication stashed to survive more than a few weeks of strenuous activity without suffering a major heart attack.

    Yes, good idea. Wouldnt want someone with years of experience being a drain on your resources. You should make it more official though, maybe a panel to decide the fate of those who might drain your resources. And who knows, without your help, he might not make it even a few weeks. This would allow you and your group to swoop in and redistribute his stockpiles for the good of the group. Yes you must pick and choose for the future. I suggest you watch Dr Strangelove for more tips.

    I am using Lifeboat ethics, it isn't pretty but it isn't suppose to be. And it is a panel we agree who we should include unanimously. We help people and distribute surplus food we have to the local food bank now, but once we are in a lifeboat then things change. Right now we are picking who we want to be in the lifeboat with.

    Is it worse that in a survival sittuation, we are willing to do it, or that the government wants to do it in our present sittuation? While it may be a brutal concept, societal norms and what is acceptable would be completely upended in the type of sittuation we are discussing. It would be difficult decisions, but is it worth helping one person live for a few more weeks at the cost of resources that will end up costing the lives of several other people in the long run?

    It may be that I am not understanding your sarcasm, but I have a feeling if you keep throwing around political stereotypes and mocking discusions of actual scenario situations, you won't last here too long.
