“IN AN INSTANT, ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN,”
There is a growing subculture of Americans who refer to themselves informally as “preppers.” Some are driven by a fear of imminent societal collapse, others are worried about terrorism, and many have a vague concern that an escalating series of natural disasters is leading to some type of environmental cataclysm.
“It’s never too late to prepare for the end of the world as we know it.”
Living in the time of the end
“Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. ” Luke Chapter 1 (KJV)
How To Really Prepare For Long Term Collapse
Total social breakdown. Major cities gone. The complete collapse of civilization. How will you survive in a land with no government or local police? Communities, survivors left to fend for themselves.
Certainly a very deep pantry will feed us for a time directly proportional to the ‘deepness’ of that pantry. Certainly all that we have acquired will help us during the aftermath and unfolding of time.
However when we’re talking about a long term collapse, a time in which life as we know will be drastically changed for a year or more (forever?), then we’re talking about something that goes way beyond just our preps. We cannot simply prepare for such a time by deepening our pantry. While this WILL buy us time, the fact is that we will never be fully prepared in this way.
