Urban Survival - Important Aspects of Outdoor Survival
There are several ways of looking at this issue. First The Lost Ways you may wish to keep the group small and include only three or four families in it. Naturally, operational security would be an important issue regardless of which way you decide to go. Problems will be massive such as how to draw like minded people together into a working community without permitting the crazies from knowing all your secrets? It may sound difficult but it really isn't. You can accomplish this task by the use of "Cell" recruitments. Suppose that you have four friends which you feel can be completely trusted and are interested in networking. They in turn will recruit three or four additional people. If these recruits are couples then that will give you at least two dozen people in your group. That number is small enough for some people and easy enough to provide supplies and food for while providing for an increased labor force as well. Another alternative approach you could take is to look at teams of perhaps four and create five separate teams. Think of it in the sense of you will actually have more eyes to see what is going on and more weapons for a better defense which ultimately equates to more security. You would need to establish a dedicated inner core of team leaders. Make certain to utilize all the available skills as they would benefit the team as a whole. Ensure that all ideas or plans are never left to be decided by a solo individual but rather discussed within the group's leadership itself. Maintaining your group small may be acceptable however remember that a larger membership of people would be superior from a defensive standpoint. More people simply mean more of everything including food, clothing and yes weapons.
And because of the unfair resources distributions violence in the Nairobi city has been on-going since independence as the gap between nationals who owned resources (like arable land) widened -and the means to eventual access to development opportunities (like jobs and benefit from public services) became more of a dream than a reality. In the Uganda districts of Jinja, Mayuge, Iganga and Kampala, it was only modernization, (or development) that mattered -and as only understood in terms of tarmac roads, high administrative and commercial building; and not all, in terms of development of the natural environment of which humanity was part. In Jinja and Kampala, despite such a perception of development, (or modernization), appropriate waste management technologies were not applied.
