This thought occurred to me when I was alone, listening to System of a Down, going through my preps...
My room mates are good friends, but they have no real respect for me, or any tact. No matter what rules I set, they would break into my stores and eat
all my food--food which, given the scenario, I would have made a well-thought-out plan for.
Sure, I would want to save them--but these people have the biggest breakdowns you'd ever imagine at the MOST NORMAL problems in life. I don't think
they'd have the drive to survive, so to speak. They expect someone else to take care of them, and whine if it doesn't happen. They're beyond change,
beyond any real concept of independence.
Also, they're all a couple years older than me. They're adults. If they're really worried about it, they can take care of themselves. I educate them
every time I learn something new about any possible SHTF stuff that might go down, so it's their responsibility from there, right?
I'm not quick to abandon my friends, don't get me wrong--but I KNOW they would get us KILLED.
Not to mention, I have a younger brother, sister, step brother, step sister, and about ten little cousins I'm really close to. And, my family has a
little extra food stored up, but they don't really prep. Those kids would all be screwed if something huge went down.
I would rather plan for the kids, my fiance, and myself. First and foremost.
That's just my opinion.
You don't have to reveal much about whatever plans you may have, it's not something you particularly advertise.
But, I was curious to get other people's perspectives on this issue. It's been on my mind for a while now.
Give it some serious thought, evaluate your values, and the people around you.
Who would you protect? And why?
I know this has probrably been posted a HUNDRED times, but it festers in my mind. Personally, I believe I should be more responsible for the kids,
rather than my room mates. Besides... my little sister is a prepper novice, ten years old and brilliant. She would help a LOT more than my room mates
Consider these people and situations in your life. Who would be more likely to help you? And who would be more likely to get you killed, or to submit
Just a thought I had. If you haven't given it much thought, you should.
