Good thread really. My ideas are mostly kept to myself for very similar reasons that you list. I have tried to talk with a couple of co-workers and
they have responded to point, and I think they may be starting to wake up. My parents though, shot me down fairly quickly with a “what weird stuff
are you reading” kind of comment. I haven’t given up on them though, as I think that in the near future they will see that some of what I have
mentioned was correct. My wife though, she is in a denial kind of phase right now. I think the talk of some of this got her down a little bit, because
most of it isn’t that positive. She told me that is was getting her down, and that her idea to avoid that feeling was to do fun stuff now and live
life to the fullest. So, that is kind of a benefit of her denial. It isn’t that she doesn’t want to know about it all, but I think it makes her
sad for our kids about the future that they may have. We also recently put together our SHTF kit with all the needed supplies including a gun. She was
actually really supportive of all this and helped a lot with the purchasing of the right items. We put together an Emergency Plan too, and sent it to
all our family members. To some, that was kind of shocking, but it was right around the Japan earthquake, so everyone just kind of chalked it up to
that. I mentioned to a couple of friends that I was putting this kit together and I got mixed reviews, some in support, others though I was weird.
Otherwise, I don’t tell the average Joe about my supplies for fear of them coming to me when it all goes down.
I think you have to be careful how you talk about these types of things. What you may support, other people may be offended by. 9/11 is a huge one of
course, and the people are pretty divided over this topic. I just try to be as aware as possible, and listen to what others say and how they say it.
If I hear a sense that someone may be waking up, I might mention something lightly to see how they react. If they respond positively, I may go further
in depth. But, there aren’t many…yet. I hope more and more come around, because we need it!
