Interesting question. But the problem with lawlessness is it is a two-edged sword. After an EMP event, or some other such disruption, there will be a period where law will be either nonexistent or will be used so selectively by the regime it will express nothing but the personal appetites of whoever has jurisdiction-by-force in your neighborhood. After the initial crisis, if the Marxists come out on top, I would expect them to apply contract law exclusively in their own favor. Under Marxism, your property belongs to the hive, and only the hive. Double whammy if you lose title under both systems. IMHO, the only safe place to ride out the storm is somewhere completely off the radar. Should it come to that, we will each need God to help us find that place. Because really, there can be no place safer than the center of God’s will.
The challenge for me, in getting into “survivor mode”, is that it doesn’t seem like there really would be any place that was safe. With heat-seeking radar and butterfly drones they can find and kill whoever they want to kill, and the ones they want alive are the ones who will bow to their purposes. Their corrupt buddies. I fight with the thought that Adolf Hitler has been put in power, and we little people who still love freedom are all Jews. If we’re going to be spared it will be through divine intervention only, from this point on.
Unless whole communities start preparing in advance, somehow. Start using a different bartering system than US dollars, and make sure that their community has the basics necessary for everybody, and delivery systems that don’t require electricity or gasoline.
I think of Joseph telling Pharaoh that there would be 7 good years followed by 7 years of famine. If God had not given Joseph that dream and made sure that he was in a position of trust with the Pharaoh so that the Pharaoh listened to him and let him prepare properly, the loss of life would have been tremendous. Unfortunately, the “Pharaohs” who are supposed to be protecting us despise all us little peons and won’t listen to any of the warnings we’ve been giving. Sigh.
But God will take care of us, somehow. He’ll give us the strength we need, to face whatever comes our way. I have to concentrate on that or there will be no hope to hold onto.
