The reality is that TEOTWAWKI is deeply personal.
Survival is temporary---join a gym, get a flu shot, have that cardiac bypass, pack the latest Glock---it's all temporary.

Kenny Rogers sung The best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep

Perhaps you can resist an attacker today, or even take an attacker "with you" tomorrow(remember the closing lines in the movie Beckett(1964) when Thomas speaks of the monk who brought along a sword when a gang of the King's henchmen attack, something to the effect of Oh Lord, if he could have just gotten one of them it would have made him so happy!)
But eventually it's going to end with your own personal TEOTWAWKI. Never mind that you've got a better chance of being run down by a sow Buick in a Walmart parking lot than riding an A-bomb into Siberia like Slim Pickens in Dr. Strangelove.

Protecting your loved ones from harm is noble and I say a sacred duty which all able bodied red blooded men inherit, but that seems to be a very different thing from TEOTWAWKI scenarios I read about here
