Disaster Preparation Series 01: Anarchy

Anarchy is as old as the hills if you are looking for philosophy that has no use for government, states that governments are evil, and often suggest that groups be formed without government, you have found anarchy. The philosophy has been around for centuries in many countries of the world.

Anarchy can lead to violent social disorder, total disregard for normal human behavior, and one of our presidents was assassinated by an anarchist. That would be the shooting of William McKinley in Buffalo, NY by Leon Czolgosz on September 6, 1901. He died a slow death, many thinking that he would survive. His last words to his wife were said to be, Nearer My God to Thee, the song played in Titanic movies. McKinley was ahead of his time. The Titanic sank on the 15th of April, 1912. April 15th is dreaded to this day by those filing their income taxes. Anarchist don’t pay income tax.

In the 1960s when the Vietnam War was raging, young people right here in the United States revolted causing major riots in Chicago. These young people crowded the Interstate Highways, corrupted the rest stops, formed communes in the country side, and showed no regard for law and order except that of the local commune guru. Free sex and communal living was the trend. Charles Manson was one of these gurus who murdered people and had no regard for society and especially government. His prediction was Helter Skelter, a racial apocalyptic war.

Out here in Idaho and especially one state north in Montana, folks are armed for bear. They think that loss of control by the government could lead to armed gangs pillaging the countryside. Many are organized into military-like groups to protect their interest. Some are afraid of these groups themselves and plan accordingly.

Disasters often breed anarchy. We see people pillaging stores during riots and natural disasters all the time. When the government loses control, anarchy flourishes. What this shows is that people are not always good no matter what are the conditions. They are good because they usually have to be. Anarchy can result in Marshal Law which deprives people of their usual legal rights so they can be incarcerated until things calm down.

Preparation:

Communities need to plan for anarchy. Towns may have to block of streets to prevent vehicle trespass. Deputies may have to be supplied to manage road blocks, guard stores and private property, and to take care of the needs of the people. Families should have the necessities of life to survive for several days or even weeks or months. This includes food, water, flashlights, first aid kit, medicines, sanitation supplies, perhaps an emergency kit, and a good book. Well, maybe you can get by without the book but what if the TV is out?

Whether or not fire arms for home protection is needed depends on circumstances. Living in rural areas without community protection could be a considerations.

Fly Old Glory!
