A couple of state lawmakers from South Carolina are pushing a concept for Americans concerned about a future societal collapse that centers around the formation of like-minded prepping outposts that feature community ammunition depots and tactical weapons training.
As reported by the Post and Courier, the lawmakers – State Reps. Josiah Magnuson and Jonathan Hill, both Republicans and both from very small towns upstate – are currently establishing what they have called the “Virtue Solution Project,” a group that wants to save the U.S. or survive a societal collapse they both see on the horizon.

The paper noted further:
The organization is a mixture of religious ministry, grassroots political organizing and disaster prepping. At its core, their movement hopes to save the country by reshaping it to their interpretation of the Founding Father’s ideals.
The pair is asking supporters and followers, as well as aligned groups, to begin forming their own communities of like-minded individuals and families in a way they will no longer have to depend on corporations or the “tyrannical” federal government. They advocate for the support of “principled men” similar to themselves who are ready to ignore laws and court decisions they don’t agree with (kind of like all sanctuary cities and most of California).
They are also asking supporters to get involved in existing structures of the civil society. They don’t expect everyone to run for elective office. Instead, they are asking people to serve as jurors so they can acquit people charged with crimes they fell are “unjust.”
Should these tactics fail to bring about the desired changes, the two state lawmakers recommend establishing “community preparedness centers” containing “reading material, tools, food storage, ammo and more.”
The purpose of the centers is to serve as survival mechanisms in the event of a societal or economic collapse, a major natural disaster, war with a foreign invader, massive cyber attack or an electromagnetic pulse event (nuclear explosion or a huge solar flare).
These “micro hubs,” as they are called, will serve as platforms for religious teaching, first aid instruction, farming, learning how to create and maintain renewable energy, military movement and additional “tactical defense” training.
“There’s probably going to be a lot of little crises, but there will eventually come a point where there is a major disaster of some sort in our country, in all likelihood,” Magnuson said in a lecture he gave last year that was uploaded to YouTube. “We need to be ready for that, and that will give us an opportunity to have a fresh beginning.”
Magnuson, who was first elected to office last year, is already at work establishing what he calls a “lighthouse” or “island of refuge” near the town of Campobello, on about one acre of land. So far, he says about a handful of people are involved, and they are working to create additional islands of refuge in nearby towns, as well as in the neighboring state of Georgia.

Documents the group has posted online say that the long-term goal is to “train and equip one million neighborhood leaders” who are all-in to “build a fresh beginning for America.”
For now, Magnuson said his Campobello center, which is an old barn he purchased through an LLC established last year, will become a coffee shop. However, later he hopes to grow it into the vision that he and Hill have devised.
“It’s serving two purposes,” Magnuson told the paper, regarding the land and coffee shop. “As we build that strength, it prevents doomsday, and on the other hand, if we don’t succeed, then this provides, like, lifeboats.”
The election of Donald J. Trump has given tens of millions of Americans renewed hope that the country will not only survive but thrive once again. Still, there are others who believe that the globalists in the U.S. and around the world who oppose the president and his “America First” plan are setting him up for failure, either by crashing the U.S. economy or through some political action against him at home.
