several sheep, get bags of grain, get it all preserved and underground, or you're going to starve. you can't defend above ground storage, and you can't be seen, either. When everyone else is a walking skeleton and you look normal, you'll be shot in the leg and tortured to find out where your food is stored. there simply aint enough wild game or edible plants to feed even 10% of the population, even if it was done intelligently and systematically. Since it won't be, less than 1% will make it by such means. 90% are going to die if the power goes off (and stays off) within a year. diseases, infighting, lack of water and food, shtf is going to get nearly everybody. the fact that you dont believe it doesn't change anything. it just reveals you to be a whim worshipper instead of rational.
