Is there a systematic write-up of these ideas? We might start to put them in the wiki.

Stocking up food is also great to sit out short term problems with the local infrastructure. Like blackouts or massive snow.

No idea about systematic write up, I posted some on that in general.

Much of risk of homicide, for example, may be in the small fraction of futures where the society collapsed, while only a small part is in the business as usual futures.
