Aren't we in the middle of an apocalypse now?
But anyway, I think I would actually like to survive an apocalypse and live in the aftermath.The idea of living in a world after social collapse where most of humanity is gone and there is no government or corporate authority would be very appealing. I am generally disgusted by the excesses of human society, consumerism and our soulless corporate spawned monoculture. I wish we could reset all of society, go back a couple hundred years to when there was less convenience but more meaning, and start all over again. Rebuild a different kind of society based on different values. Build a society that isn't obsessed with wealth, status, and ever-increasing efficiency and rates of growth. Build a society based on shared experiences and culture not on material possessions.
Of course this all presupposes that I and the rest of the people who survived the apoclalypse could learn how to harvest sufficient resources to even survive. I'm guessing the first couple of years would be rough trying to learn how to hunt, gather, grow crops / garden, etc. I've lived in the city my whole life, I've never eaten anything that didn't come off a shelf at a grocery store. I've never even been fishing.
Everybody knows you only live a day but it's brilliant anyway
