There are a number of things that are happening on the world stage that could destabilize the long-standing world peace. Now, nothing is perfect but with the amount of war we have seen in recent years we have not seen the type of loss compared to the type of death and destruction we dealt with in the last world war.
World war is something that most people cannot understand. With the advancements in warfighting tech, I think its hard for anyone to understand what a real-world war would look like in our world today. There are more people than ever and much more effective killing weapons than ever before. That means many people will die.
Most notably is the tinderbox that exists just under the surface of many first world nations today. There is a serious division all over the world.
Places like America and Europe are very divided on a right-left paradigm and its pretty easy to say that even in wartime, we could see an outbreak of civil unrest as governments are forced to cut funding to the public to pay for the war effort.
You need to be working towards self-sufficiency and being able, not only, to feed your family but also to make some money or barter for other resources. So as well as a solid stockpile of food, you will also want some skills.
No matter how much you curse the leadership of the western world, past, and present, they have been able to keep the world at peace for the most part. That is such a big deal. We do not want to see something like a draft come back, civil unrest hit the streets of America or, worst case scenario, an occupying force in this nation.
No matter the situation, keep working towards being prepared.
