Even Preppers are Unprepared for the Real Hunger Games
NOVEMBER 22, 2013
Like me, millions of Americans are discovering that today is not like yesterday and that tomorrow isnât likely to be much like today. As difficult as some days are, these will be the good days for most of us. This is the calm before the storm, we can feel it. And so we attempt to prepare for what comes next and that makes us preppers.
Proverbs 22: 3 âThe prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it.â
Most preppers are concerned about a deepening recession and an eminent financial reset which will cause civil unrest which could last weeks or months. Most preppers live in cities or suburbs of big cities. Most preppers have less than an acre of land which is not zoned for agriculture (chickens are frowned upon). So most keep living their suburban lives and they keep up appearances, but when no one is looking, they buy dehydrated food in # 10 cans and they study rainwater catchment systems and self defense. They prepare for the coming trouble because they love their families and want to provide and protect them. But their prepping wonât be enough.
A smaller subset of preppers live in rural areas, many having recently relocated because of their prepper mindset. An increasing number are selling their suburban dream home, moving to a humble home in the countryside and are working on getting âback to the landâ. They rightly surmise that the best case scenario for the imminent financial reset will involve a decade long depression. The civil unrest will very likely outlast the food storage. The ability to live off the land when the stored food runs out is important.
