Theres no harm in being prepared, even if your 'paranoid' slightly about something that may or may not happen.
The majority of people if not all expect to see tomorrow as if it's their God given right, WE ALL expect to get home tonight and then wake up again
in the the morning but from my experience it always isn't the case.
There is the fact, that should people be prepared they will go out and spend their money now for supplies which will sit in their garages / homes/
bunkers wherever, gathering dust, the suppliers will be thankful for the custom, if nothing was the happen then to you and I who bought the stuff it
might seem a waste of money now, but should something actually happen wouldn't you rather have the stuff there just in case?
After all its better to have equipment in case you need it , rather than have the need but no equipment.
Sure some people will panic and spend their lifes savings on building bunkers, buts that ok , most sensible people will buy a BugOutBag and invest
in a suitable vehicle, weapons and other supplies, truth is you make do with what you have to hand, even if you haven't gone and invested your time
and money, that fact that you are aware that something could happen is sometimes the fundemental truth which could keep you alive, the majority of the
people will wait for help from the same leaders and Government that lied to them, help that will never come.
I would tell people , after all we are supposed to be a community, all the Governments tell us we should look after each other right?
The more people that are even 'concerned' something could happen may make a difference between forming communities after the event or the extinction
of mankind as we fight over the dwindling resources , looting shops, and other undesirable activities. Think of it like this , you either have a semi
prepared society living off the land , helping each other or a mad max type of society where the strong kill the weak over piddly sh*t.
Where would you like to live?
The more people that survive now or through the event means less genetic defects from inbredding and a limited genepool.
