RE: The RVF worst-case-scenario survival/preparedness thread.
During those times the smaller towns (>100 people) are going to clear out except perhaps for a couple of scouts and the larger towns are going to become tiny city-states who will be looking to police their districts ruthlessly. Everything will be loosely collectivised and quite voluntarily too because farmer John knows he's got jack-squat chances of defending his herds and his other valuables on his lonesome.

My best guess is that towns will be fortified. In the case of farmland, area cattle and as much feed as possible will be moved to the land ringing the town. Scouts will be put in place and one or more response teams will be set up to deal with incursions.

Food will not be a problem for a long, long time. Farmers breed cattle for outside consumption and with no way to sell them then the townsfolk will be complaining about beef for dinner again while people are eating each other in the suburbs.

Local military incursion is a possible problem but hopefully they arrive holding an olive branch and simply offer protection or at least an opportunity to be a part of a makeshift regional government. That's a good thing unless they're going to attempt to incorporate the city folk into that government, in which case resistance would be in order for the same reason you don't let swimmers over-burden a life raft.

God demands of Man responsibility. God demands of Woman vulnerability. These are their curse and blessing alike. Libertianism is to Man as Feminism is to Woman.
