Tipping Point: The Time When Your State Of Mind Will Make The Difference Between Life And Death
Sunday, November 10, 2013
We all have our own ideas about what the terminal event will be. The event that above all others, tips mankind over the edge, throws us into a level of turmoil that the human race has never experienced before.
After doing a great deal of reading, and visiting dozens of websites devoted to our survival after such an event, it seems that failure of the power grid, and a total economic collapse are the two things that are at the forefront of most people’s mind.
It’s easy to see why these things should feature so prominently, they both affect the fabric of the society we live in. If one of them happens it could without too much imagination lead to the other.
Obviously there are many other things that could go wrong, Yellowstone could blow its top, a coronal mass ejection could hit, or a new ice age could begin. The list is almost endless. Some people will survive, of that there is little doubt, but surviving well is a different thing entirely.
To me, prepping is something I do to help me live after such an event. I want to do more than exist; merely existing is something that should be reserved for those who have put no effort into preparing. Those of us who have prepared deserve to benefit from those preparations.
Regardless of what most believe, that is that urbanites will perish in the first zombie wave, I refuse to accept this. I refuse to give up, it is not part of my character. I have moved from the city to a much smaller town, but the dreams of rural isolation still exist, alongside my city mindset.
