Knowledge - It's Power
If a situation arose in which a great disaster occurred and chaos and anarchy was rampant and humanity's population dwindled drastically, knowledge is what's going to keep you and the future alive! This is of course obvious to some but, it's not just the knowledge you posses but, what kind of knowledge and how to ensure that it gets passed down so that there may be a future for humanity. I am sure enough that something will happen in 2012 that me and a very close friend of mine are building permanent structures where we will retreat to in case of a disaster. A huge thing we discuss quite often is what we need to educate future generations and what knowledge we need ourselves. Text books, reading books, sci-fi/fiction books, books, books, books, but we can't take a library's worth of books so we will have to carefully decide which ones will be needed. Little bits of info that benefit you when you need it like, how to pick locks, make cartridge mines, bombs, drugs, hand to hand combat, navigation, knife/sword techniques, etc... are extremely important as well. As I continue my researching, I'll discuss the the little bits of info in more detail and review which books I think are good to have in permanent location.
