SHTF, or "Society Hits The Fan," is a term that describes when the world as we know it falls apart due to a natural disaster or war. If that were to happen, what would you do to survive?

Learn a useful skill that I can barter for protection from one of the stronger gangs. If I have no skills, join a large gang as a grunt worker and keep my head down until it's obvious getting out and moving to another gang is safer. Safety in numbers, right.

I agree that in such a situation it is reasonable to stay within a larger group and be useful to that group. Eventually, we might rebuild everything anyway. I don't think any kind of post-apocalyptic anarchy or whatever is actually realistic, at least not everywhere on earth.

Become a sick monster ashamed of the unspeakable things I would have to do to survive. You know stuff like murder, robbery, backstabbing(probably literaly) Just some sorted henias acts to ensure my survival for another retched day.

My mates and I have a contingency plan for all different kinds of situations. The main theme though is a long line of murder, backstabbing, robbery, terrorism and gang wars. We would effectively become monsters to everyone except friends and family.

Relocate to a large luxury home with plenty of land after the previous owners have fled, plant a surrounding crop of stinging nettle and bells on strings, take up fruit farming, and wait for the first victims and/or customers to arrive, so I can mug and/or barter with them.

The "seal self alone/with suitable associates in a heavily barricaded smallholding" approach is the only viable alternative to "the attach self to the most competent group you can find approach".

Find a small wooden boat capable of holding several hundred bottles of water, row to an uninhabited island, wait there for a few months until most of the chaos has died down.

Same thing as in a Zombie Apocalypse.
Kill off the weak, keep the strong, linger for a few years, then try and start up a new government (A GOOD one, USA) and restart life, where drugs are legal (Not a user myself, but let the people using them realize thae affects, and continue if they want, or quit.

Keep the people safe, until i die, with no heir, and leave EVERYTHING in shambles. MMMWWHAHAHAHHAHAHA!!!!

I would use my quasi-expressive satire to cause mah wizardry skillz transcend all awesomeness ever conceived by the gods, thereby ending (and reversing) all catastrophe upon the earth.
