Not exactly true, because order of magnitude different acreage needed for heating-with-firewood vs. surviving on venison solution. Also depends on whether you believe property rights will remain at all respected and what level of government (broadly defined) will remain intact. Owning a few acres of well-managed woodlot would be more than adequate for sustainable family-level use. Although, of course, fire itself would be an increasing risk.jacob wrote:Until everybody starts doing it, picking up all the fallen wood and cutting down the remaining forest. Similar dynamics why going deer hunting isn't a good survival strategy. Currently, the woods stay up because of the availability of fossils.
Owning property in the inner city is actually kind of good practice for the apocalypse, because, for instance, I couldn't go to my garden by myself last week, because there was a violent rapist grabbing women off the street a few blocks away. I was also a little bit anxious while gathering blueberries in the woods, because there was bear poop nearby, but since the ratio of human females being mauled by black bears vs. human females being assaulted by human males is about zero, that was just me being silly.
