A couple of things. Prepping makes sense as most of us are no longer creating our own food. How do you think folks in the Great Depression would have
behaved if they were as armed as most Americans today and they had forgotten how to farm, can and hunt? There was more land back then and people of
that time actually had morals and ethics.
There are many cards stacked against should our just in time dependency system become disrupted. We also have multiple polarity dynamics creating
perpetual tension whether it be democrats vs republicans, illegal immigrants vs citizens, the people vs the govt, etc. On top of this a growing
police state, financial problems, mega quakes, food disruptions, toxins in the oceans, and populations outgrowing the finite resources of the Earth.
Hurricane Katrina taught us everything we need to know about what we can expect from the govt. I would even say that the delay in response was more
of a field test then a real assistance operation. Just to see what would happen.
A disaster like what Japan is experiencing would not be going so smoothly in the US.
ETA: It's better to start thinking about the solutions before you are presented with the problem.
