Bad though it is, and yes, I do know about the infrastructure problems as well, but people have become too soft.
What do they think people did just a few decades ago? The people back then had harsh winters and hot summers to deal with and didn't have the
luxuries that people have today. They didn't have air conditioning everywhere, they knew how to cook on a stove rather than just bung something in
Seems these days people just scream for the government or someone to fix things NOW.... someone, anyone, instead of approaching the problem rationally
and looking at what they can do to get through and, yes, preparing for events. Keep a camping stove with the pots needed to cook on it. Keep the
ingredients to knock up basic nutritious food, candles, matches, other simple basics. It doesn't have to be full-on armageddon preparation, but every
thing and piece of knowledge helps.
I sometime think maybe I am beng a bit hard on people for their lack of self reliance, but to me it's just plain common sense, which sadly seems to be
lacking in peoples "comfortable" lives.
