Hoyt: Doing The Arithmetic


In support of the clear-eyed anti-pessimism in the piece, consider the following:

Get to defensible ground; always be making it more so.

Finish medical preps like dental work, cataract removal, and anything that won’t be available during the Disruption.

Clean up your personnel problems; you know who will be a net negative during the war. Arrange transfers for those folks sooner rather than later.

Potable water will keep you and yours alive; make sure your purification plans are both broad and deep.

Make sure that everyone knows the basics of weapons use and safety; you will need ‘all hands’ more often than you’d like.

Never stop prepping.
