Apparently, Fleeing the City During A Crisis for Rural Shelter Is "Treason"

When Hurricane Rita was approaching Houston in 2005 an evacuation of that city was recommended. About 2.5 million people tried to leave resulting in a traffic jam more than 100 miles long. The advice to NOT evacuate major cities is GOOD advice for many scenarios as people are safer and better off staying at home inside and sheltered with adequate provisions rather than stuck in a car on a highway with nowhere to go and limited shelter and supplies. It has NOTHING to do with patriotism or treason. It is quite simply a matter of simply isn't possible to safely and efficiently evacuate a city on short notice. Ask most who
are 'in the know' and the consensus is that if you wait to leave till you HAVE to leave it's TOO LATE.

The big difference today is the fact that back then, Americans WORKED and PRODUCED "things". Now a vast number of the "hive dwellers" only act in a parasitic role. What will come of them when they cannot be cared for from the cradle to the grave? On another note, the evidence of .gov control was plentiful then, but overwhelming now. I believe the name calling and allegations of treason were intended to deter people from "clogging" the roads. Military planners of that age were all too familiar with the problems encountered with refugees blocking roads in Europe in WWII.

Those two have good points. Another is that city dwellers will not be welcome as a general rule. Unless they have family that will welcome them, and are prepared to handle them, they will just become criminals just to eat.

On the other side, the government absolutely despises those who intend to survive and are getting ready for a disaster. They want to be in control, that means needed. An unnecessary government doesn't remain powerful for long. As the economy goes, though, I don't even think it will take a revolt. A few more years, hopefully. More time to prep before the dollar is worth it's true value and treated that way. On the good side, all currency is broken. It's just that no one dares treat them that way, not quite yet.
