I'm sorry for appearing to be the damp squibb here but a little reality is required.
We need to be prepared, yes. What for? Really, who knows, so here's the news...
Sensibly, preferably without the tin foil hat, take a good earnest look around you. Take note of the the possible threats, yes, ALL of them. Now,
realistically mark off the threats that may or may not come to pass in the near future, the far future, etc..
My advice, for what it's worth, is to assess near and present threats and prepare accordingly. To be fair the complete and utter breakdown of
society, a.k.a. teotwawki, is not going to happen anytime soon. If you can assess risks for realistic occurrences then there is a good chance that,
not only will you be prepared for that eventuality, but also in the event of the worst case all the other preps you've been carrying out will
actually stand you in good stead.
The good news is the "sheep" will probably think you're an okay kind of guy too.
