Louis Theroux Weird Weekends - Survivalists
In Idaho, Louis meets military enthusiasts and right-wing patriots who are preparing for a global catastrophe, including trips to survivalists' store Safetrek and a mountain refuge for conspiracy theorists called Almost Heaven. Louis also visits the Aryan Nation Church and helps to build a straw-bale home. The episode focuses on the survivalism movement and communities formed around it. The fact that several self-proclaimed survivalists were also hippies and environmentalists is a recurring theme.

i think beyond some bottled water and a small bit of stashed away food you are ruining your lives and obsessing about things that will never come. You are basing financial decisions on what ifs and crazy scenarios such as antichrist or planet x. With all that money you spend you could easily give to charity and merit Gods mercy when times are tough. Survivialism is nothing new even books published in the 1970's advocate what you are doing now. The USA's decline will be slow not overnight like most preppers think. GET REAL AND STOP LIVING A FANTASY!
