Watching in runet survivalist subculture For ten years now, I’m not tired of being surprised at the stereotyped and limited thinking of its participants. For those who think they are in vividly in the discussion army themes.

Of course, the subculture doesn’t have a unified consensus on the use of camouflage and army equipment. It comes to the discussion of the European theme.
It is a fact that the paranoids are completely irrelevant. All attributes survival movement do not want to admit it even to themselves. When they try to make it worth it, it’s worth it.

2. Grab a backpack and run to the village
Way collective protection of the population, designed by forces Civil defense countries involved in a nuclear conflict. Potential participants, fortunately, but for the time being. It is clear that there has been a lot of effort.
Scattering and evacuation turned out to be a more realistic approach than building shelters for every citizen. Of course, taking into account the specifics of individual countries, the hostilities. For example, it’s not a problem. However, it is often necessary to stay on the road. Additional reason for survivors think about the evacuation plan.
