Life in a Post-Apocalyptic World

The Walking Dead is set to return in October.  Rick Grimes and company were trapped in a train car at Terminus, which didn’t end up as much of a sanctuary as they thought.

Is the Terminus crew a bunch of Cannibals? Perhaps.  Are they scarier than Walkers? Definitely.  This brings me to some thoughts.

In a post apocalyptic world, especially one occupied with zombies, sometimes it’s the other survivors who are the biggest danger.  Survival depends on being able to stay safe, stay fed, and stay alive.  The people who manage to find safe shelter with lots of provisions become the biggest targets.  Those who are without suddenly feel entitled to what other people have.

The next thought is whether or not a safe shelter actually exists.  What would it be? A castle with defensible walls and a moat? A well-stocked penthouse with rooftop garden?

What are your thoughts? What’s the best way to stay safe in a post apocalyptic world?
