    It can't just be me.. Can it?

    It can't just be me who is expecting a civil war at some time soon?
    Its not that I fantasize about it or want it to happen but! I can't help but think it would be silly not to expect it.
    So my question is, do you think there will be civil war and are you prepping?

    I wouldn't be surprised if something happened in the near future. Don't know about civil war but the worlds going fubar.

    No, I don't expect it or foresee it. Maybe I live in a bubble with the people around me. I don't see much friction in my life, though I have heard of it in some areas where communities have formed that don't integrate or tolerate those who don't conform to their ideals and beliefs. I doubt it'd lead to actual war though. At worst I could imagine very localised skirmishes.

    I think, in general, society is too afraid of change. The uncertainty of what would follow and the fear of being in control of our own lives (I don't mean every individual), and wellbeing is justified. It has been too many generations since most of us really had to.

    Kind of like the "Grass is always greener on the other side of the fence" fear.

    It's kind of a strange one. I think the government would need to remove the benefits system before they had any worries. Here in the UK someone on benefits has a better life than the average, or even above average, person in some parts of the world.

    The way the situation on the ground in eastern Ukraine is evolving, such as if the US provides the Ukrainians with 'Defensive Weapons' I can see that escalating exponentially. Probably won't become a threat though. However its probably worth keeping on eye on developments.
    As for home grown threats, I can't see any major civil war, but I am expecting more 'Lone-Wolf' Attacks like the Charlie Hebdo, Copenhagen shootings..It's a Sad world.
    That's why I like to get away to the woods!

    Heard on the radio today that Russian jets were spotted off the coast of Cornwall in the past couple of days and were escorted off by RAF Jets! Not a civil engagement like first mentioned but hey, daft fear mongering and Russia no doubt flexing their muscle testing reactions with their latest on-going exploits. I don't get too involved in politics or foreign affairs, all I know is there is far too much war and fighting in the world for us to be considered a civilised species yet!
