Reality is truly more terrifying than fiction. There is a mass exodus happening all across American and its very real.
Whether this is a fight against centralization or an understanding of the threats that could be in Americans near future, something is causing Americans to run from the cities. I will tell you that more people are prepping than you think.
More people are understanding the risk of being unprepared. They are going to preparedness websites and the previous count of 2 million preppers is a vast underestimate.
There is chaos in high population density. It’s just a numbers game. In those dense populations, there will be a number of people who will not be prepared and instead will turn to chaos and violence as a means of survival.
If you are in one of those areas you are going to have to either leave or deal with those desperate people. It won’t be fun and it won’t be easy. Survival in suburbia is going to be a serious struggle.
The more you cut down that population the better off you are going to be in your own struggle to survive.
Prepping can be a buyers game if you are not careful. By rushing out of the cities people are gaining land and they are also finding self-reliance and independence among those lands. This is also a tremendous gift not just for the prepper but for living a meaningful life.
The homesteading crowd isn’t too far removed from us preppers. It’s like we are both on the same journey but we have taken separate tributaries.
You don’t have to look far to see the storm coming. The threats are right in our face now. Some people are taking action. Others may never.
