The responses to this thread blow my mind, sadden me, yet in an oddly perverse way relieve me.
I find it hard to fathom that members of this website, of all places, are shown every time they come here WHY it is soooo important to have a plan and
prepare for when TSHTF, and yet they arent.
As I read the majority of posts, it is clear that many people on this forum will not survive when it all comes down. I cannot understand why ANYONE
would not be grabbing a few extra items when they go to the market, like dried beans, rice, a few extra cans, etc...it really is NOT that hard.
Sock away just 1 dollar a day and before you know it, you have enough to get a water purification device.
To me, it is madness to not be setting some things aside.
After reading all these posts of people who are aware enough to be members of this website, yet still so apathetic as to be doing little to no
preparation for when things get difficult boggles my mind. To me, this only indicates that the general population is probably doing even less than
It saddens me to think about the demise of all the people, naive and ignorant alike, who coulda, woulda, shoulda... but didnt.
Perversely, this will make things a bit easier for those of us who do have a plan, are learning skills and are making preparations, as there will be
FAR fewer people competing for resources.
God bless us all
