(…) Look for a small town you can move to. The further from the big cities the better, but if you have to work in a big city, making a two hour commute is better than staying in the city.
And let’s be real – you’re probably going to lose your job anyway when the cascading begins. (Further, if you have kids, you know that aside from all of this madness, it is better for them to live in the small town, and spending four hours a day in the car listening to podcasts is not the biggest sacrifice a man has made for his children. Even further, you’re going to be saving so much money by living out there that basically, every hour you commute will be saving you more money than you would make in an hour working.)
Just start going out on the weekends and driving around the small towns within the range of your city. You can probably get a house for less than you knew houses sold for. If you’re not established, and you can’t afford a house, then look at trailers or even empty plots of land where you could park a camper. Just make sure you’re within range of a small town center – you don’t want to be out in the middle of nowhere alone, unless you’re really, really out there (and at that point you would probably need some pretty serious survivalism knowledge that most of you presumably do not have).
These cities are going to be killing fields, and it is very possible that they are going to close them down completely, and not let people out of them. They can already do that sort of thing now if they want to under coronavirus mania (…)"
