The Next Gen of Preppers
Regardless of what you may think or feel about the millennial generation, there are certain things about them that have far exceeded their parents’ generation. Information, for example. All they’ve ever known is to Google search. They have little to no concept about the Dewey decimal system, cassette players, or floppy disks. Their world is incredibly fast, information filled, and they are very aware of the problems we face on a global level. Their perspective is more global than country-oriented.
Though many of them tend to be more emotionally driven than factually driven, that comes with time, age, and wisdom. Weren’t we all emotionally charged in our twenties? Their awareness at their age completely blows ours out of the water and that is one of the reasons that this next generation of preppers coming up will be drastically different than what we know and practice. Much like the differences (much more so than between other generations) between the childhoods, their approach to prepping will have a different makeup.
What they lack is the experience and skills that we as older preppers have. These skills are vitally important to pass on to the next gen! As it says in the article, “How do we go about connecting millennials with older preppers? Indeed, that is the question.” Read on!
