Format: Paperback
I purchased and read this book 39 years ago when I was a private first class in the Army. This was about the time of the Yom Kippur war and the Arab Oil embargo, and some of us thought the end was coming. Gas prices doubled almost overnight from 33 cents to 60 cents a gallon. I developed a survivalist mentality, traded in all my savings for silver bullion (about $5 an ounce), bought Ruger 10/22 rifle with five mags, and got together as much backpacking & camping gear as I could afford. The book said that the Government would make sure that we soldiers were fed when the rest of the country couldn't, because we were needed to maintain order. But eventually, even the Government and the Army were supposed to disintegrate. When that happened, my platoon sergeant told us we would simply "take" one of the Army's 5-ton trucks, head north to Canada, and form an armed colony. Well, that was 39 years ago and there have been a lot of ups and downs. I long since gave up preparing for the end of the world, went to college, started a career, began a family, and am now retired. My father, now in this 80s, remains a committed doomsday prepper. I think the greatest disappointment of his life is that he will probably not live to see the end. He built his whole life around building a remote bunker complex stocked with food and a massive arsenal. In the last 20 years, civilization has encroached on his hideaway and his bunker is now surrounded by a semi-rural community where people live normal lives and no one threatens to steal away his food. End of the world doomsday thinking is, more than anything else, escapism for those who are dissatisfied with society and their position in it. In the post-apocalyptic world, they will be the wise men who had the foresight to prepare. Until then, they live a life a mediocrity.
