"The instinct to survive is human nature itself, and every aspect of our personalities derives from it.

Anything that conflicts with the survival instinct acts sooner or later to eliminate the individual and thereby fails to show up in future generations. . . . "

- Heinlein

 Cool



Unfortunately we're devolving, the stupidest  people are having the most kids, and our nanny laws keep them safe from their own stupidity. Evolution doesn't work with as much meddling as we're doing now...

"At least once every human should have to run for his life, to teach him that milk does not come from supermarkets, that safety does not come from policemen, that 'news' is not something that happens to other people. He might learn how his ancestors lived and that he himself is no different--in the crunch his life depends on his agility, alertness, and personal resourcefulness." - Robert Heinlein

you are both looking at too small a part of the cycle.

the prey species always bounce back after the predators have thinned out from previous pressures.

the predators are rebuilding now.

the prey is clueless.

it's good.

Hey Dirttime, one of those metaphysical questions for y'all. What is the real reason you study wilderness survival? Going for some depth here...

If you need answers to the question. bend over and kiss it goodby
