  • Hello citizens, welcome to Purge nightFor the next twelve hours all emergency  

  • services will be suspended, and all crime  is legal. Now, it's time to vent all that  

  • rage and frustration you've been storing  up over the last year, it's time to purge.

  • So you're caught up in the modern dystopia that  is the New Founding Fathers of America's version  

  • of the good old US of A, and it's March 21stpurge night. How do you survive the purge without  

  • the benefit of high powered military weaponry, as  nothing more than a simple, normal, everyday joe?

  • First, let's recap the history of the  purge briefly. Originally started as  

  • a grand social experiment on Staten  Island by the ruling political party,  

  • the New Founding Fathers of America, the  Purge quickly grew to be a national event,  

  • and now every March 21st all crime is legalized  for twelve hours of absolute pandemonium and  

  • mayhem. But it's not just the everyday  citizen getting in on the mass murdering,  

  • because in order to keep up casualty figurespurge night is routinely supplemented  

  • by government kill squads who's sole purpose  is to murder as many people as possible.

  • But wait, you thought that purge night was  about people venting their criminal anger and  

  • frustrations out, so that the rest of the year you  could live a peaceful, law-abiding life? Well, no,  

  • because it turns out that the New Founding Fathers  of America are less interested in making American  

  • a great place to live, and more interested in  preserving the interests of the rich and powerful.  

  • Purge night's real purpose isn't to help  keep American crime down, it's actually to  

  • rid the United States of minorities and poor  people, hence the government kill squads.

  • So how are you going to survive class  warfare in its most literal form?

  • First, you have to have a plan for purge night.  

  • Waltzing into a twelve hour apocalypse  is a great way to get yourself killed,  

  • so you'd better have a good plan, with  multiple contingencies, to keep you alive.

  • Your plan should include a place to shelter,  

  • and how to get there in case you are running late  on purge night and get caught out in the open.  

  • You should have both multiple avenues  of approach to your shelter, as well  

  • as multiple avenues of escape in case your  shelter is breached. If sheltering at home,  

  • things like steel plates over windows and thick  security doors will help keep out even the most  

  • determined Purgers, but finding alternativemore secure shelter is probably your best bet.

  • Places like old mine tunnels, abandoned  military structures, and even derelict barges  

  • floating off-shore are the perfect purge shelterAn old mine tunnel may be creepy and dark,  

  • but it typically only has one obvious way in  with much less obvious escape shafts that could  

  • be hundreds or even thousands of feet away. Withsingle entryway, anyone wanting to purge you won't  

  • have the advantage of surprise- as long as you  took the time to disguise your escape shafts well.

  • Even better would be places like  abandoned military bunkers or  

  • even old decommissioned missile silosalthough those might be difficult to get into  

  • and make usable. Offshore structures means  that anyone hellbent on purging you is going  

  • to have to go through a whole lot of effort  just to get to you, and if you're armed,  

  • which you should be, then they're going to present  a very easy target as they make their way to you.

  • You might simply opt to skip physical shelter  altogether, and instead, just take to the sea on  

  • a boat. Twelve hours isn't that long, and unless  purgers are incredibly motivated to hunt you down,  

  • taking off for half a day at sea is a great  way to stay away from gangs of roving purgers.

  • Of course, another way to survive the purge  is to simply be someone people don't want  

  • to purge in the first place. Odds are as you go  throughout the rest of your year, you're at least  

  • a little bit selfish or rude to your neighbors  and co-workers. In a world with a yearly purge,  

  • that's a great way of making sure that you have  a big, fat target on your back come purge night.  

  • Instead of being rude or selfish, try to be  unselfish and helpful. Mow your neighbor's lawn,  

  • let them borrow your car when theirs breaks downmaybe keep your political views to yourself and  

  • off your Facebook. Make yourself likable and come  purge night, anyone wanting to hurt or kill you  

  • is going to find that they have a laundry  list of people they want to hurt or kill  

  • even more than you. It's only twelve hours after  all, so as long as you make sure you're as close  

  • to the bottom of that hurt/kill list as  you can possibly get, you'll be fine.

  • During purge night, gangs of roving psychopaths  roam the streets looking for easy victims, so the  

  • best way to defeat these gangs of roving psychosis to have an even bigger gang of your own.  

  • Round up like-minded individuals in the months  leading up to purge night, and form a neighborhood  

  • militia. Even a small group of well disciplined  individuals committed to protecting each other  

  • can fend off larger packs of uncoordinated  purgers just looking to cause mayhem.

  • But forming a deadly neighborhood watch to survive  purge night is only the first step. In the world  

  • of national security, the best way to ensure  that your facility or your VIP isn't targeted for  

  • attack, is to discourage an attack in the first  place. This is known as becoming a 'hard target',  

  • and involves taking steps to ensure that when  an attacker sizes you up for a possible attack,  

  • they realize that doing so would  be too costly, even if successful,  

  • to be worth the effort. On purge nightbeing a hard target might be so effective  

  • that you wouldn't be targeted in the first  place. After all, if you only have twelve  

  • hours to cause mayhem, why waste most of that  time going after the neighborhood that's well  

  • defended and equipped to protect itself? Better  to prey on weaker, more vulnerable people instead.

  • So to become a hard target on purge nightforget going solo and round up that posse of  

  • like-minded neighbors like we said. Against  undisciplined bands of roving purgers,  

  • just realizing that they'd be going  up against a disciplined force  

  • might be enough to discourage an  attack in the first place- there's  

  • likely easier picking elsewhere anyways  and like we said, the clock is ticking.

  • But being disciplined is key, you don't want to  appear like a group of random rabble. Create a  

  • uniform for your neighborhood protection forceand have every member wear it on purge night.  

  • Uniforms mean solidarity, and for roving purgersit also lets them know that a well-established  

  • force is present in this area, best to move  along and look for more vulnerable targets. Next,  

  • practice basic self-defense drills together, and  if you've got access to them- which you absolutely  

  • should in the insane world of The Purge- make sure  everyone is armed and knows how to use a firearm.

  • Next, you'll want to roll out homemade barricades  to shut off vehicle access to your neighborhood,  

  • as well as seal off avenues of approach that  could be taken on foot. You can do this with  

  • physical barriers or by stationing groups of armed  guards. Much like with the defense of a military  

  • installation, you can purposefully leave one very  obvious path for attackers to take, and this is  

  • where you would funnel anyone wishing to purge you  so they can be easily taken out. Set up defensive  

  • positions for your guards with criss-crossing  fields of fire, and anyone wishing to purge your  

  • neighborhood, including government forceswill find the effort's simply not worth it.

  • But what if you're forced to go solo? Wellyour best bet is to hide. Get out of the city,  

  • fleet to the countryside and take to the hillsPark your car somewhere remote, and then take  

  • off on foot pushing deeper and deeper into the  wilds. Ideally you would've begun your camping  

  • trip well before purge night, and made sure that  your ultimate destination required multiple modes  

  • of travel to get there, like parking your  car at the end of a dirt road somewhere,  

  • then taking a boat ride, and then hiking to reach  your final destination. The United States has  

  • a great deal of truly wild places, and you can  survive purge night by hiding out with bigfoot.

  • Ofcourse, the best way to survive the purge  though is to make sure you aren't purgeable  

  • to begin with. Like we said in our recap of purge  history, the entire event is basically an excuse  

  • for rich people to kill off poor people, so to  survive purge night, just be rich. The wealthy  

  • and powerful are not just in many cases the most  horrific proponents of violence on purge night,  

  • but are basically immune to being purged  themselves thanks to their massive resources.  

  • Elite security agents, intruder-proof safe  rooms, and homes that double as military  

  • fortresses all make being rich during  purge night the best way to stay safe.  

  • Though you'd still have to watch out for your  fellow 1%, who love nothing more than to play  

  • their sick, sadistic games of revenge and  torture on each other come purge night.

  • If you're financially challenged, then good  news because there's still a chance to make  

  • yourself an untouchable come purge night. The  America of The Purge is still sort of a democracy,  

  • so simply run for a high enough government  office and you can be classified a level 10  

  • government employee, which is still illegal  to kill on purge night. The government still  

  • needs to operate post-purge after all, and  if all our political differences could be  

  • settled with mass murder, well, at least  Facebook would be a lot quieter place.

  • Alright, you're not rich, and you're not likable  enough to get elected. Matter of fact, you're not  

  • likeable enough to not get purged and you just  know that the kid you cut off at the green light  

  • a week ago is definitely going to be looking  to get all purge'y on you come purge night.  

  • Your home is kind of indefensible because  you can't afford the fancy security systems  

  • other people can, and you don't have access towhole cache of weapons- what are you going to do?

  • Often the best place to hide isn't where people  won't go looking, but where they don't want to go  

  • looking. We're talking about the worst places  you could imagine spending twelve hours in,  

  • places that no human being in their right mind  would ever even enter, like a T-mobile store.  

  • Not as good as a T-mobile store, but closewould be a sewage treatment plant, or even a  

  • rancid landfill. These are places people avoid  in their normal lives, and for someone to hunt  

  • you down in one of these disgusting locations  they're gonna have to be really, extra motivated.

  • Become one with the filth, dig in deep topile of fresh trash, or camp out next to a  

  • large sewage holding pond. These places are going  to smell so disgusting, that very few people are  

  • going to even think about looking for victims in  a place they themselves would never willingly go.

  • Of course, you could also opt to wait  out the purge in places that are just  

  • incredibly unlikely to be targeted by purgersplaces like a local library. Think about it,  

  • what psychopath purger is going  to even consider for a second  

  • to check a local library for victims or  anything worth stealing? You'll naturally  

  • want to avoid hiding out in places that could  attract looters, after all, every crime is  

  • legal come purge night and a bunch of people  are just going to be looking for free loot,  

  • but who in the world is going to be breaking  into a library looking for things to steal?

  • The best way to avoid purge night though  is to just leave the country altogether.  

  • You don't even have to be rich to do it, just  hop in a car and drive either north or south  

  • until you hit the Canadian or Mexican  border. It'll take you a couple of tanks  

  • of gas and a day road trip, but you can  plan out a long weekend for yourself and  

  • sit in a crappy canadian motel room eating  poutine and watching America burn itself  

  • to the ground on the tv- just like the  real founding fathers would've wanted.

  • Odds are, you're still going to end  up getting hurt come purge night,
