In general terms, I believe it'll be based on the "haves" and the "have not's".Steal food, water whatever and kill others to get the goods. What % of the pop turn into killers in a flat out SHTF world?
What do you base it on?
HEY! We're not ALL like that! :gaah: :surrender:Don't under estimate the desire to survive. I know without a doubt I would defend me and mine by whatever means necessary, including shoot to kill, and I am a very quiet and generous person. I fear the younger generation that won't be denied. Their give it to me now attitude will lead to grief.
I'm NO quitter, but if a post-apocalyptic 'society' developed like that, I'm not so sure I would want to be a part of it, even if it did have x-boxa lot of people would kill an attacker to defend their loved ones and rightly so , but that is a whole different thing than killing to raise their social position
I for one do not have a teenage daughter but would be interested in trying your experiment... Do you have one for loan... Very Big Grin.if you have a teen age daughter take her to the mall and walk 25 yards behind her and watch ...even the nicest clean cut men of all ages will look at her and most will turn to watch her walking away! How do I know? because I do it too! it's the male beast... am I going to act on it? hell no... but how many will?... so....
This has nothing to do with intent. It has to do with the abilities inherent in the animal. Go to any third world country and walk around unescorted as a female and see what happens.carlnet , if you think a male is more dangerous , try threatening a females offspring , whole different animal then
No I don't have one...thank god..all my friends daughters are now in that 13 to 16 bracket... I got the Mall thing from 2 of them's dad, we were sitting in a mall admiring the "view" and he was enjoying it too when he said ya kno...all these hotties are about 15... I about fell off the bench, he was right!! I never looked at their faces just the rest.. they weren't built like that when I was 15 that's for damn sure or else they were but didn't have it on display!I for one do not have a teenage daughter but would be interested in trying your experiment... Do you have one for loan... Very Big Grin.
On a serious note first world countries have not prepared women for SHTF. Women in general are very well protected from predation and it has made them assume that is the way it always was and will be. Then we have TV shows where on woman kicks a bunch of large men's butts and women start to think this is the way it is. Simple equation, pour testosterone into the system and you get heaver bone mass and larger muscles. Fair or not the non testosterone enhanced animal will lose.
For this very reason I have worked hard to make sure my wife shoots very well and is equipped with a weapon that is designed to work with her. As such I have very little fear of someone attacking her but I do fear for her attacker...
As for what percentage of people will turn into killers? The answer is none. All people are already killers and just have not had the correct environment to express that side of their programming.
