That's a good idea, very dipolmatic. A compromise.
Maybe you can get your boss to share some of his "survival experiences", ideas and how he came to his conclusions. Share your experiences, views and
your ideas with him, you don't have to agree with everything your boss says, the exchange of ideas will generally help both parties in some ways, no
matter how small.
Make sure that your boss is an open minded person before attempting this
Don't let this exchange of ideas degrade into an agressive arguement. Be as dipolmatic as you can, give plenty of examples, situations, reasons and
experiences, do not force your views and back off when the topic becomes too emotional, advise as a friend not as a teacher.
Not everyone is paranoid, some are more extreme than others. Some think short term, others long. Survivalist plan according to what they think may
happen, some plan for everything, others do not. There are alot of factors invovled. Some ideas are more practical to some people not to others.
I know of a friend who sees the soap as the most important survival gear and cannot see life without it.... . Sure it maybe important, but it
should not be the most important, people have lived without soap before.
