One of my big beefs about the prepper community is their almost elemental pig-headedness. There really is no other way to define it.
To find someone in the community who is just trying to figure out how to get by in a world going through a spasm is difficult in the extreme. Preppers have a tendency (approx. 67%) of being knuckle-dragging right wing morons. They spout the catch-phrases of the past and imagine that somehow the world would magically improve if we would just go back to being blinded by the false ideas that led us here. Now just to make sure that folks understand, I still like these guys, and would happily buy them a beer any old time, but their politics suck
Nayway, I really don't think highly of this group. As a matter of fact, most of them should be rounded up under some obtuse law and shipped to Alabama. But that won't get done, so I will have to deal with it.
But the preppers are certain of their way. They have the future mapped out and their plans laid. They will follow these set plans, assured that their plans are blessed because they had the ability to see the storm coming. Remember though, the storm arriving will just be the start of the process. Most of these semi-sacred plans will fail, and you will be scrambling with the rest of the folks.
So, I think that I will keep and eye peeled for what's coming my way, keep my head low, and try to devise a system with flexibility and a big dose of compassion.
