13 Things to Do Before the Economy Collapses

During a SHTF situation, pain could become an annoyance for some, but unbearable for others.

It’s more important than ever to prepare for a financial collapse, so in this article I’m going to cover 13 things you should do before that happens, starting with the most obvious ones:

12. Learn Self Defense

13. Beef Up Your Home Security

5 Bad-ass Perimeter Defense Lessons From A Vietnam Vet

The Viet Nam ground war was relatively primitive terms of force multipliers and its success, or lack of it, depended mostly upon small unit engagement with relatively basic weaponry.

Amazingly, today this type of fortification can be replicated on a smaller civilian but equally effective outcome on the private BOL compound today, and in a couple tactical applications, even better! Obviously the scale of enhanced force would be somehow different but the essential principles of applied dynamics and what works best are the same.

Here’s how to get started in the simplest, least expensive way.

15 Skills That Will Make You Priceless In A Post SHTF Barter World

Looters and other criminals will steal so they can then use the stolen items, or just to barter with for other goods.

In the aftermath of a widespread disaster or the collapse of civil society as we know it, you’ll want to have useful skills and items that you can barter or trade with. Once society collapses, bartering will become a business, a black market business if you will, likely run by criminal elements.

Due to its preparation process and storage method, pemmican can last for many years and in many cases, decades.


There are dozens of edibles lurking in the average suburban yard.  Some of them are wild, like dandelions, and others are cultivated plants that happen to be tasty edibles.

Hostas happen to be both…they’re a plant that was once harvested as a tasty woodland edible, that became a cultivated plant in our backyards.  Somewhere in the process, the edible part was lost in translation.


While America is on lockdown across the country, radical socialists in Washington, D.C. are working overtime to advance the biggest gun control bill in American history!

You might think that with the Dow plummeting 35% percent in the last month and with America facing the potential of 20% unemployment in the coming weeks, that these people would have more pressing things to do.

But make no mistake, the crazed leftists in Washington, D.C. are willing to do whatever it takes to try to destroy our heritage of freedom!
