What Will The End Be Like For Me If I Don’t Prepare?
August 13th, 2013
When “The End” is brought up in conversation most people think of a science fiction novel or movie portraying it as some Earth shattering event – boom and it is over. The almost certain truth behind this is that it will not be the Earth, the Sun, or solar system that gets it. The real end will more than likely come with human civilization as we know it coming to an abrupt closure. What you as a person are in danger of is very likely not a mass extinction of all of human life, but the crumbling and complete fall of the structures and foundation that holds up all that most every human being depends on for survival.
There is an old saying that ‘no man is an island.’ It indeed takes a rare, almost unique person who can boast that they are free of dependency of the components of modern day life to make it alone. If and when human society collapses, someone’s chances of post True SHTF (TSHTF) survival will be partially in proportion to just how self reliant they can become. The other ratio will be just how well someone can adapt to a new world void of the conveniences which have become totally expected by the masses.
Many will say to the themselves, “here we go again with another doomsday prophesy that will again fail to manifest itself.”
So what makes this warning any different than those of the past? This is NOT some forewarning of any imminent mega society ending event(s) such as World War 3, an economic collapse, super virus outbreak, colossal solar flare, supervolcano erupting, or some other equally awful horror. This is about understanding what you are doing as a person, a parent, a son or daughter, a friend. If you awoke one morning and learned that a catastrophic event had broken loose, how well prepared (or how totally unprepared) are you?
Anyone doubting just how terrible life can be need only experience longer term (more than 3 days) power outages at anytime of year, but especially during temperature and weather extremes. These losses of power happen all the time, EVERYWHERE. Being brutally honest, can anyone say to themselves that that life without power for weeks or months or longer will be anything less than awful for the general population? This is a mere taste of what an implosion would be like. The frailness of the infrastructure of any country is incredible. Few understand or care to think about this, because the prevailing attitude for most is, “it will always be there for me and work for me.”
