2013: Is It Time to Get Out of the Big City?

2013:  Is it Time to Get Out of the Big City, Once and For All?

This post was updated on 01.28.2013 with a special 2 hr video presentation by Joel Skousen on “strategic relocation, definitely worth taking the time to watch. See video at end of post.

Although I did my own personal “final physical relocation for sanity, spirituality and safety’s sake” into the untamed wilds many years ago, for many American city dwellers who are raising kids [ or raising their kids' kids ], 2013 might present the last opportunity to get out of the big city before life in America takes yet another tick downward on the socio-economic and personal safety scale.

If you have been praying on this issue, or just doing alot of deep thought, with calculator in hand, there’s a list at the end of this article that might help you make up your mind. You might not yet be sure where you are going, but you can at least know where NOT to go if you choose to relocate.

Many city dwellers might find themselves feeling financially trapped in the city, as they still have important jobs which tie them to the region. But think long and hard about your real quality of life and how that might change in the twinkling of an eye should a period of civil unrest come to America. Is your prestigious urban career worth dying for? It may come to pass that a change of residence inspires an entire change of lifestyle, career included. You may find that you need to morph from IT professional to professional greenhouse gardener and farmer’s market merchant in order to make a successful transition. If the issue needles you, if you lose sleep wondering if you and your family are in the right place, it’s worth careful consideration to look at new rural career options that would help to support y0ur family outside the big city limits, far outside of  them, at least 30 to 50 miles or more. There are any number of possible scenarios which could transform big city life in the United States into a living hell within 3 weeks or less.

Relocation may not be the solution for every family, but it just might be the perfect new lifestyle solution for some. Search out your own heart on this issue and discuss it with your family. If relocation is financially impossible for your family at this point, the next option is to establish a private family retreat or “bug-out” location which is well outside of city limits.

This should be a locale that you can drive to in a day or less. Establish everything in this bug-out location with the thought in mind that if you and your family needed to live there for an extended period of time, you could. Start working on this project NOW, this year, and don’t set it off far into the future just so you can buy a boat that will sit in the driveway 50 weeks out of the year. Begin planning for your private bug-out location now, this winter and spring, if at all possible.

More posts on living in the preparedness mode to come, and in the meantime, be sure to check out one of my other blogs on preparedness, Ready For Anything Store, as there are many good articles there as well.  Author Joel Skousen has produced a feature length video report titled “Strategic Relocation” which is a MUST WATCH if you are already thinking of making a move.  Below is an excerpt from one of his most recent global intelligence reports:

Did you Know?

The Russians are building tremendous new nuclear/biological and chemical weapons systems–all with the assistance of US technology transfers. They are deploying on average, 3 new Topol-M 6th generation ballistic missiles per month. We built our last MX over 10 years ago, and are disarming unilaterally. Further, the Russians are building huge underground nuclear bunkers and weapons production facilities in the Ural Mountains, clearly intended to function during a nuclear war. The US intelligence community (under both Republican and Democratic administrations) knows this and are actively covering for the Russians, so the American people won’t become alarmed.

Both Republican and Democratic administrations have been supplying the Chinese with high technology weapons systems for years, knowing that they, in turn, are supplying other enemies (Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, North Korea) as well. Both Russia and China continue to protest against any US anti-ballistic missile system, even though such systems are purely defensive. It doesn’t take a genius to understand that ABM systems only threaten someone who intends to launch ballistic missiles someday.

President Clinton directed our military to absorb a nuclear first strike rather than launch on warning (our only true deterrent to a first strike) and to prepare to retaliate afterward. That first strike will take down all command and control, all bombers (since none are on alert), most missiles, and all satellite and submarine communications.

According to the House Armed Services Committee, the following reductions have taken place during the Clinton Administration: Strategic and General Purpose Forces from 1990 to 1997: B-52 Bombers have gone from 220 to 56. B-1 Bombers from 90 to 60; Strategic Defense Interceptor Aircraft from 36 to 0; and Army Divisions (1990 to 1997) have gone from 18 Active down to 10. Reserve divisions have gone from 10 to 8. Army Brigades (1990 to 1997) have declined from 8 Active to 3 and Reserve brigades have gone down from 27 to 18.

Joel Skousen’s World Affairs Brief attempts to track the insider moves underlying the major stories you hear each week. The WAB is not a primary news source–but rather, the best source of news analysis. Joel’s purpose and strong point is to help you see how world and national events are shaping up in accordance with the secret agendas of men and groups who control government. The World Affairs Brief puts together the probable set of intentions and motives of the power elite by inductively cataloging their specific actions over time.

What will you do about it?

What is the risk to you and your family if there is a major terrorist attack on a U.S. city with chemical or biological weapons? What will you do?

Did you know the US, by policy, will not retaliate on warning of a nuclear attack –effectively removing any deterrent? Are you prepared if the “unthinkable” happens –nuclear war?

Have you considered what you will do if an economic crisis threatens your pensions, investments and other so-called “guaranteed” income?

What about a major earthquake or other natural disaster suddenly upsetting the natural social order for months at a time? Could you get out of harm’s way if massive social unrest erupts in the wake of a crisis?

What about your home? Do you have extra tanks of potable water should public water supplies be cut off or contaminated? Would you know how to collect and filter your own water if none was available for a long time?

Joel Skousen is a world-renowned expert in home security and Constitutional law. Joel, who publishes a weekly comprehensive analysis of world affairs, is also the author of books on home security, law, and government. His latest two books, The Secure Home and Strategic Relocation–North American Guide to Safe Places, address the myriad economic, biological, and political threats that face families living in today’s complex world. The books also serve as guides for families wishing to relocate to a more secure area and become self-sufficient. In addition, Joel is available to consult privately with individuals to design high security residences and retreats, or to develop contingency plans for emergency situations.
