Can there possibly be any good news to a Nuclear attack? Well I think there is. Although several thousand people may die from the inital blast, most more will actually be able to survive the attack if they are trained what to do post-blast. What’s sad is that most people are jaded by the culture myth that a nuclear-attack is unsurvivable. In addition to that, our society has not taught the common people what to do in case of an attack. What needs to happen is a mass media civil defense training of the public that will ensure less chaos and give citizens a sense of hope when they do survive the inital blast.
Now don’t get me wrong. A Nuclear attack is the last thing I want to see happen, but I see so many people today who either think it’s a big myth that A) people have a chance of survival or B) that a Nuke attack will even happen at all. Shane Connor writes an interesting article on this from WND:
Civil Defense training of the public is clearly the only hope for those in the fallout path. Of course, the government should try and prevent it happening first, but the answer he should have given to that question is: “preparation, preparation, preparation” for when prevention might fail.
The federal government must launch a national mass media, business-supported and even school-based effort, superseding our most ambitious public awareness campaigns like for AIDS, drug abuse, drunk driving, seat belts, anti-smoking and smoke detectors. The effort should percolate down to every level of our society. Let’s be clear – we are talking about the potential to save, or lose, many times more lives than those saved by all these other noble efforts combined!
This tragic and deadly oversight won’t change until the crippling myths of nuclear un-survivability are banished by the good news that a trained and prepared public can, and ultimately has to, save themselves.
In the meantime, though, don’t wait around for the government to instruct and prepare your own family and community. Educate yourself today and begin establishing your own nuclear survival preparations by reading the free nuke prep primer “What To Do If A Nuclear Disaster Is Imminent!”
