All over the nation millions of people are taking notice of what is happening on the world and local stages. They are understanding that things are not what they seem. Prepping and self-sufficiency are taking hold in this nation but the vast majority of people still remain oblivious.
Why are we so dismissive of preparedness culture in America?
Let’s be honest, we have more important things to spend our money on. We need to impress those around us with our clothes and cars. We need to post on social media about our vacations and our relationships. There is just not the time to take actual steps to protect those things we post about.
Of course, this is a little sarcastic and sardonic but it’s a little true too!
Once you come to the conclusion that you are vulnerable you have to deal with that. It’s not something you can just ignore. There are some problems that are so massive they are impossible to deal with! So what is a person to do? The average person avoids the reality of threats. They decide to hide from these things and pretend they don’t exist.
Yes, its cowardice but its part of a life that is overwhelming and hard enough without the end of the world breathing down your neck.
Prepping takes a commitment. You are committing to an active inventory of food, resources, and weapons, you are committing to plans and training and all that can be overwhelming. We struggle to commit to a social media app!
The truth about prepping is that it requires things of you and we have created a society where it’s nearly illegal to put requirements on people. That makes us weak and is another reason why we are so bad at preparedness.
