Reorganizing after TEOTWAWKI

Call me crazy, but I thoroughly believe the world as we know it will crash eventually. This conviction leads to a burning question to the prepper community — a group which aims to think ahead and prepare for the future. If you survive the end of the world as we know it, what, if anything, will you do differently to avoid getting into the same mess again?
Many preppers possess a bit of wisdom and foresight beyond that of the mainstream sheeple. For some reason, these folks can plainly see what others can’t — the handwriting on the wall. Nevertheless, preppers are a diverse group comprised of people who don’t necessarily espouse the same politics or religion. Despite that fact, this mixed bunch has reached similar conclusions. It’s a continuum between: the system has become unreliable, so don’t put all your eggs in one basket; and, the system will be the thing that attempts to destroy you. There are many theories and viewpoints represented in the mix.
I know politics and religion are cans of worms, but the current situation can’t be analyzed without talking about them. It’s a good idea to try to do this without flying off the handle. The fact is, when people form any kind of community, politics and religion come into play because that’s how people articulate key morals and ethics necessary to cooperate in community. Even anarchists and atheists are drawn into the conversation.
