If there was a survival kit that could save me from an act of terrorism I'd carry one.
I carry lots of bits abnd bobs I find usefull, some scalpels, a pocket knife, change etc, but none of these will save me if a car bomb goes off, and
nothing in your kit will save you if they gas a tube train.
terrorist acts are designed to cause disruption and enforce a regime of paranoia and terror.
To my mind anything that disrupts my usual way of doing things is a victory for the terrorists, as such, yes, I do see not being particularly bothered
about it as an act of defiance.
I still look both ways when I cross the road, I still try to stell out of Mosside after dark and I still don't tend to aprouch salivating men with
wild eyes wielding machettes.
but apart from those day to day things we've allways done in order to maintain all our limbs, why bother disrupting any other aspect of your life
trying to save your self from somthing that your not going to be able to avoid if it happens
