I began posting this as a reply and decided it was worthy of its own posting. I want to speak to those of us who have been prepping for the hard times to very SOON come. I have prepared to the best of my ability to survive the coming rioting and gang violence. It is this segment of the collapse that I believe will cost many lives unnecessarily, aside from needing water and food that is. I've warned family and friends the best I can, even to the point that they have isolated me and ignore talking to me, simply because they cant help but ask the latest news, knowing what I'll tell them...its' rather twisted really, and ive stopped talking on the subject with some.....I have emotionally dealt with what is coming, and will refuse help to ANYONE I have forewarned.....I will only help those who I have not warned....basically strangers. Doesnt make sense does it?? It makes perfect sense!! I am a man of sound body and of sound mind, if you wont at least honor me and investigate what I say is coming, you have spit in my face and dishonored me as an individual who is only concerned with helping to save lives......If I have forwarned you, I have nothing for you, you will learn your lesson the hardway and maybe next time youll listen to others when the come to you with something of note to look into. I dont know if anyone else feels this way?? I will not stick around, because I cannot....too many people will remember my warnings to prepare, and seek me out for help, so I cannot be found or else I would be undone. Many of us will have to learn to say "NO" to friends and loved ones, simply because we will not be able to save them all. I recently told a close relative who is prepping, this: The people we warn are grown ups, not children, and must be treated as grown ups for the choices they are making or not making. If you are a prepper, you should be able to keep yourself healthy and fit, so that you can help others AFTER the worst has passed. Personally, my prepping is for this purpose, to get me past the rough initial phase of transition.....after that, its the hunter/gatherer mode, accompanied by the warriors mindset for survival against violent men.
