Outlaw Thoughts. How I imagine the end of civilization will happen.

Published on June 23rd, 2021

A quiet evening, as you rest from a long winter’s day. Suddenly, your home shudders and cabinets rattle as several jolts shake the ground beneath your home. The shaking gets more intense, as light fixtures rocking back and forth, dropping the glass shades to the floor. The shaking becomes increasingly violent as waves of energy are released from the mega-volcano at Yellowstone. For those individuals who are in the vicinity, homes immediately collapse due to the violently shifting ground beneath them. The larger cities along the West Coast lay in ruin, as the highest recorded earthquake throughout the history of recordings immediately follows the expanding dome within the Yellowstone complex. Within minutes, which seems like hours, the ground beneath the super volcano sends millions of tons of rock and dirt skyward, followed the the unmistakable ash plume towards the sky, essentially turning daylight to nighttime. The explosion releases another violent wave of quakes around the pacific “ring of fire”.  The sky over the northwestern hemisphere becomes dark and saturated with ash, and burning debris. Boulders, tons of rock, and surface fauna comes tumbling back to earth, crushing anything beneath it. Most major cities are now piles of rubble, and the dead bodies strewn everywhere outnumber those alive. All utilities have been damaged beyond immediate repair, and are currently offline. Most, if not all, families are attempting to treat injuries, and trying to find family members. Cellular communications are completely offline, as well as radio and television. The world is very different, especially right after the event. Flights are redirected, and all major roadways are blocked due to the infrastructure damage.

If I had to say, I’d say that this single topic is the single largest source of email in the old inbox here at the Alaska Outlaw. This topic, those Doomsday theories we always hear about, or tune into the A&E “Doomsday Prepper” television program.

{musical portion “end of the world as we know it”}

Ed from Illinois asks, what are these “Doomsday Theories” I keep hearing about?

Trisha from Arizona asks, don’t the doomsday theories talk about the end of the world?

Marilyn from Texas asks the obvious question, If it really is the end of the world, can we really be prepared for doomsday?

Martin from Kentucky wants the numbers when he asks, there are so many theories floating around, which one has the best chance of happening?

Mike from New York asks, why do you always seem to discuss the idea of “Doomsday”?

Tim from North Carolina brings up an interesting point, does it have to be a complete doomsday? What if the event is only half as crazy as expected?

Greetings to all my friends (both new and old), to my wonderful family, my fellow Alaskans, and my fellow Americans, wherever you are. Welcome to the Alaska Outlaw podcast, I am the Alaska Outlaw, thank you so much for joining me this week. This week I hope to introduce you to a topic to consider. As we talked about last week, the ideas of doomsday theories possibly actually happening should be noted. Although the chances maybe incredibly remote, a grain of reality exists. In an effort to ensure our successful outcome, we should be prepared for anything, so at least having that plan, would be an excellent back up plan. But, before we get after it today, I’d like to make sure that, for those of you who seek peace and harmony, or hep in making sense of life, be sure to check out the Alaska Outlaw Forn-sidr podcast at http://forn-sidr.akoutlaw.com.

Let’s talk about what a “doomsday theory” is. When considering what we need to be prepared for, thinking about the end of the world as we know it should always be in the back of our mind. How do we go on after society has imploded? Considering all the items that we have in our lives will be gone, or impossible to replace. Our lives will be completely different, but yet we’ll retain the knowledge that we had them, and what they did. So, contrary to those who say that humankind will be thrust back to the Stone Age, the knowledge of the developed technology will be retained, thereby allowing crude replicas to be created. This then provides a stark contrast to going back into time, before there was an understanding of these conveniences. So, while we talk about the loss of current conveniences, some of these Doomsday theories are survivable. So, with all that said, let’s talk about a couple more possibilities other than our intro today. 

In being prepared, it means that we need to consider all possibilities, however we really don’t have enough time. Suffice to say, some basic principles apply to many different scenarios.

 As part of this show though, I want to include a little chatter about the skills necessary to survive each of these events. Starting with the event at the top of the show. All of our “grab five” are going to be attack in that type of event. Firstly within a certain time frame, ash and gases will be filling the atmosphere, thereby making it damn near impossible to breathe. Next, we already saw most structures crumble and collapse, meaning we have shelter considerations, and possible wounded or trapped family members. Consider those a fairly important piece, especially considering the outdoor temperatures. As we pointed out in the intro, “resting after a long winter day”. Shelter is going to be an important factor here. Now stockpiles of food will be available, however this is going to take a very long time to recover from.  Having a source of food other than Carrs/Safeway is going to be important fairly soon. Water may be problematic as well, while wells should still be all right depending on the power source, filtering will become a requirement fairly soon as well. Finally, the main part of protective gear will more than likely be equipment to continue to breath with.

Social unrest leading to international invasion. Internationally, several of our world adversaries monitor the social unrest and conclude it is just the event necessary to initiate their plans of conquest. This scenario would be the social unrest leading to another country invading US soil. With enough distraction caused by civil unrest, and with the assistance of sleeper agents, a sizable invasion force conceivable could inject themselves into our country. This one is rather tricky, as the invasion force would have to be political as well, as our allies would mount a counter strike if it was discovered. It would have to be a take by force operation, as the nitwits tried to accomplish back in early January 2021. This exercise would be very delicate in managing the military response, a straight up face-to-face confrontation with the US military would be a fruitless jester, leading to immediate failure. Honestly, I really struggle with this one. When I wore a younger man’s clothes, I witnessed the savage brutality of the US military from an outside perspective. Most civilians can’t comprehend the raw power behind the American military on the battlefield. Take my word for it, stay on the right side of those guys, as they can end your whole family from a different time zone. So, while our oxygen supply should remain intact, the remaining four principles would be assaulted for sure. Sheltering might be interesting, as well as food/water distribution. A substantial factor during this event will be the individuals safety and personal security. Between the civil unrest and the occupying forces, personal security might become a rare commodity. Most hard-core preppers will say that stockpiling ammunition for the guns you have, whereas I think a little differently. If an invasion force were to go from house to house, they might deploy some recon of the areas first. My thoughts would be to look at renewable weapon systems, such as bows and atlatls. Again, just thinking off-the-cuff, but the renewable weapons could be rebuilt if taken, and there could be an unlimited source to reconstruct ammo, without any necessary resources.

Man made “zombie” pandemic is another major real world consideration. Many have suggested that the first pandemic was caused intentionally, and now internationally it is being accepted as probable, especially given the fact that the Chinese have purposely misled the WHO investigators. This should lead us to consider the idea that it was a “dry run” for what lies ahead for the world at a time where biological warfare could technically be much more effective than Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD). Given the mutations that continue to surface throughout the world, I believe it’s pretty easy to believe that, yes, it could have been planned. Worst-case scenario says some rogue nation decides it’s ready for the next round and releases a new variant that kills the vaccines, and the immune system of the host, leading millions to die of the common cold. I believe that this should be a major consideration in our plans to becoming and staying prepared. I believe that this is the most probable method of taking down the modern-day Goliath. However, as the scenario suggests, witnessing the carnage left behind by the SARS-COV-2, and continues with the constant discoveries of variants, the death toll for a planned attack could be staggering. The reality is that those freezers storing vaccines would be needed to hold the dead. One death begins to float around on the air, via the unsecured corpses everywhere, sickness and additional deaths are sure to follow. This doesn’t even speak to the wild animals who would now inhabit population centers for boundless sources of food. So yea, I think this one is fairly plausible. What do we need in the toolbox to confront this one. Well, number one is our airway and lungs. I think this could be handled in much the same ways COVID was, however, we’d have to be very diligent right from the gun on this one. So, while other things should be available, the dedication of the vendors should be a concern.

Being prepared for a multitude of possibilities is not impossible. By covering the fab five, we can adapt it to each of these scenarios to give us a better chance at surviving anything. This is where we (as average citizens) need to focus our energies on. 

So, with all that said and done, let me propose how I think society as we know it will come to an end. Now, before I go too far, my scenario is based on fiction. I need you to know and understand that this is my honest answer to the question of how I see it all ending. It will start in the same place that the SARS-Co-V2 started, China. As I suggest that the recent world-wide pandemic was the “proof of concept” for a delivery vehicle in which nefarious contaminants could be offered as the viral payload. Something much more dangerous, and more fatal. We have already seen a mutation of the COVID-19 virus which allows for adapt to different regions of the world. So, the perfect delivery mechanisms has been tested, and perfected with the variant “tweaks”. In lieu of a flu type payload, we deliver a mechanism that ensures that males between the ages of 17 and 60 are incapacitated an ineffective. At which point, the “sleeper agents” here in the US begin to sow the seeds of social unrest by unbalancing the distribution of treatment protocols, leading to a disparity among the races. This leads in internal conflict which continues the spiral around the drain for the US. When the infection rate has reached some pre-defined numbers, the next stage can be implemented fairly easily. Financial instability caused by China collecting on American debt with both banking and businesses being crushed by outrageous fees, thereby sending a silver bullet through the heart of the American economy. The financial strain that the US would be under would make even the most basic services unaffordable for most citizens, further separating the economic classes. By this time, it’s essentially “dog-eat-dog” of the streets of every town in the United States. In this state, a small country like Iran or Iraq could launch an invasion force on American soil to rush the remaining citizens and finally conquer the “super power”. The difference in this scenario is, that although we’d be under the control of third world mentality, we’d have the knowledge and infrastructure to move the technology back into mainstream.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. Where are our allies in this scenario? They are essentially in the same boat as we’re in. With the delivery mechanism scattering it’s effect throughout the world indiscriminately, the worlds population would be reset to about the turn of the millennia. This would be especially potent in large population centers, like first-world countries, whereas third-world war ones would be more protected from outsiders due to the lack of desired travelers. This means that uncivilized countries would have less immediate impact than larger, more advanced societies. In the more advanced cities, half the deaths would be caused by this virus, while half were overwhelmed by the millions of dead cadavers littered throughout the streets and homes everywhere. However, amidst all this decay and destruction, there is hope. You. As prepared as we were, we knew how to protect ourselves and our families. We had gardens, livestock, weapons, naturally gathered power and water, and protected our airways from getting infected. We gathered what we knew would keep us safe, moved away from population centers, and maintained a method to create and maintain “trade routes”, that helped us get the things we couldn’t make.

Again, please remember, my scenario is just a “believable” idea, that could very easily come to fruition. That’s what I’m “prepping for”. What are your thought as to how it all ends.

As always my friends, I am humbled that you have taken the time to spend with us. I hope I have given you some food for thought that you consider ensuring that your individual response plans are adaptable, in your overall survival plan. By focusing our energies and resources on the basic principles of survival, we can better set up ourselves for success. Remember, be safe out there, keep your head on a swivel…. Peace.
