If the SHTF or TEOTWAWKI, is it okay to take from your neighbor?

    If the crap hit the fan or the world was coming to an end, would you feel it is okay to take from a neighbor who prepped and stocked food and supplies? Or is the government justified in taking from those who prepped to give to the general population in an emergency?

    Is it hoarding or bad if someone prepared and you didn't?

    I am curious as I do prep for emergencies, natural disaster, job loss, etc. It seems many think that is either crazy or they plan on showing up if something goes wrong. As a result, I do not discuss with people, but I was curious what people thought.

    Firearms? Check.
    Willingness to use force to repel moochers and parasites? Check.

    He looked skinny but strong. His whiskers were frayed and he was dirty. Rupert wondered how he looked himself.
    “Hi” said Rupert. “Who are you?”
    “Ha!” said the other mouse. “I’m Snider, the field mouse . . . why?”
    “This is my house” said Rupert, “but you’re welcome to come in. I have enough corn here for both of us.”
    So they both went in.
    Rupert was happy to have a friend. Maybe Snider could teach him how to live in the field. Things were looking up. Before they started to eat the corn, Rupert had told Snider about his adventure. Snider laughed about the berries and said he could help. He told Rupert to go out “right now” and gather some twigs and he would show him how to build a fire. “Go on, go on,” said Snider. “I’d help, but I have a bad leg.”

    So out Rupert went, not wanting to upset his new friend. He quickly gathered up twigs from all around the house. And when he returned, there was no Snider . . . or corn.
    Rupert was crushed.
    He fell to the ground and began to cry.

    Why had so much bad happened?
    How could Snider have been so mean? Didn’t he know Rupert would starve to death?
    Who was going to help Rupert now?
    Suddenly Rupert stopped crying.
    Nobody. Nobody was going to help Rupert now. Only Rupert.
    Rupert got himself into this; Rupert would have to get out of it.
    He got up.

    I would share with children, but not adults. Might need an army some day and who better than children you have raised to think the way you do.

    Oh, and I will share with adults with medical training.

    Snider, what a bastard he was.
    What happened next?
    Did Rupert STD?
