    Interesting view on the movie Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and what it can teach us about survival and SHTF.

    Media of all sorts has been used to steer the public for a long time. I find it interesting how in the past few years more and more movies are being made about surviving some catastrophe. Are they sending a message or are they desensitizing the masses?

    I think that they are doing both. Some of these movies are sending a message and others are desensitizing the masses. I liked this article only because as a kid I loved the Planet of the Apes movies, I watched them many time over.

    I will be taking my son to see this movie because of that.

    I saw it a few times growing up. I was pretty young so I don’t remember a lot of it. The only episode I really remember was when the human taught the apes about blood types. One of the apes was an outcast because he had given blood and the recipient died so they thought something was wrong with him.

    I saw it last night. There are some interesting background aspects that are related to prepping as well as post SHTF scenarios. I wouldn’t analyze the technical parts to heavily when seeing it, unless you want to ponder some of the real difficulties that would be presented.
