Why Are Preppers Hated So Much?
Have you noticed that it has become trendy to bash preppers? For a long time the prepper movement was ignored, but now it has become so large that it is getting very difficult for the mainstream media to pretend that it is not there. In fact, it has been estimated that there are now approximately 3 million preppers in the United States alone.

So now the mainstream media has decided that mocking the movement is the best strategy, and lots of “critics” and “skeptics” out there have picked up on this trend. Instead of addressing the very real issues that have caused millions of Americans to prepare for the worst, those criticizing the prepper movement attempt to put the focus on individual personalities. They try to find the strangest nutjobs they possibly can and then hold them up as “typical preppers”.

The goal is to portray preppers as tinfoil hat wearing freaks that need to be locked up in the loony bin for their own personal safety and for the good of society. The criticism of preppers has really ramped up in recent months, and it will likely get even worse in 2013. The establishment does not like any movement that is outside of their control, and the prepper movement is definitely not under their control.

The religion of submission cannot survive an open and honest discussion of its convoluted and foolish scriptures, its sexually perverted terrorist prophet, or its deceitful and demented god. When Western leaders become unified and resolute in their hostility to Islam's violent and ungodly beginnings, Muslims will flee the religion because they will be horrified by its endorsement of terrorism, mass murder, slave trading, plunder, kidnapping, and rape.

If Muslims & their apologists really want to cure "Islamophobia," here is an easy way. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.

Re: Why Are Preppers Hated So Much?
So why are preppers hated so much?

It is because they are a direct challenge to the status quo. Just by prepping, preppers are proclaiming that they do not have faith in the system. But most people have complete and total faith in the system, and many of them do not like to have that faith questioned. As I have written about in other articles, polling has found that most Americans expect that the government will take care of them if disaster strikes. Most people have been trained to “trust the experts” and to “trust the government” all of their lives, and that conditioning can be very difficult to overcome.

Not only are they proclaiming they don't trust the system, they become harder for the system to control due to their reduced reliance on it.

It makes the "system" feel unappreciated, awwwwww ... :(

Preppers have a fair amount of value stored in their preparations, money they're supposed to be spending on entertainment! They are the ones who are able to live their daily lives AND sock some away. As some of the stronger members of society, there's an instinct to tax them, to extract that wealth they have stored.

Re: Why Are Preppers Hated So Much?
Its one thing to prep for an emergency, its another to make prepping a daily way of life. imho, severe prepping is like a form of mental illness. Hoarding, worrying and living is constant expectation of some catastrophic event is a sad way to exist and its even sadder when you see people on those prepping shows making their children live that way; in constant fear. They are robbing those children of their early years when they should be enjoying their innocence and exploring the finer things the world has to offer, not hellping mommy and daddy stock pile the basement with canned beans.

Once again, the thing people miss when they are watching those prepping reality TV shows is they are no different than watching a sitcom depicting a certain way of life. The content of the TV show is always directly related to what they are trying to sell you during advertising time. Prepping shows now slam you with all their prepping stuff (bunkers, financing for bunkers, food for disasters, gas masks, you name it. if someone can make a dime off of something they will. When in history has anyone really ever needed to use their bunker?

I'd rather live and love life and enjoy it than sit around stock piling and hoarding items so that I feel i am 'ready'... no matter how much you prep, you can never be fully ready for what you don't know will or will not happen.

Everyday that passes we have decreased our on personal probability that we will encounter doom as portrayed on TV prep show because we are all one day closer to our own deaths as each day passes. If you really believe that you are going to die, why bother living at all. 1dunno1

Re: Why Are Preppers Hated So Much?
Preppers are made fun of and "hated so much" by TPTB because they actively and openly practice independence. It is the single thing TPTB can not abide.

You can be filthy rich or dirt poor. You can be a rocket scientist or dumb as a bag of hammers. Beautiful or butt ugly. None of that matters as long as you worship at the altar of the state. BUT start acting like you are going to fend for yourself and dare to survive a crisis designed to kill you off and you are the enemy because your independence and insistence to survive defies TPTB.

So, they denegrate, poke fun, and even throw up legal blockades to make prepping unpopular and even illegal in some cases. They don't want you to survive and even if they don't mind that, they sure as hell don't want you thinking you can get by without them.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

Re: Why Are Preppers Hated So Much?
Its like watching shows about extreme cuponing. People see its obvious benefits and become jealous they are to lazy or financially unable or mentally unable to do something similar.

Anything society doesn't understand gets made fun of. I think a lot of those people out there are a bit insane but in extreme situations its the most extreme that survive.

I live in a neighborhood of mild prepers. In fact if we like in the 1920-1950s EVERYONE would be considered a preper by today's sad standards. Having a few months of ammo, food, and water in your home is nothing to be ashamed of or mocked about. It's simply smart.

Like everything in life moderation is the key, I know that if doom started coming at us from every direction that at least the 40 or so families in my local area would be prepared enough and willing to help each other as best we could. It called civilization.

Humans are the cheapest commodity on the planet there is simply to much supply to to make human life valuable, but when 1/3 the population is suddenly eliminated and the 3-6 months that follow kill off another 1/3 you may find that everyone is suddenly very excited and happy to see another human and more than willing to help out. Most prepers do not have the mind set that if I see anyone after that day I'm just gunna shoot em. Most do what they do because they are natural community builders and if we lived in an environment that actually cause you to labor for your survival and not go sit in front of a computer for Monopoly money and cardboard laced meat products they would be the people you would hope you had around you.

Money spent on prepping is not moeny wasted, I've simply built up food and water that I cycle, I cook food and meals from my food stores and when I got to the store regularly I just replace what I used.

Re: Why Are Preppers Hated So Much?
You want to know something strange?

For years, while my kids were growing up, at the beginning of every school year we had to make earthquake kits (we live in California) for the kids to have at school in case something happened while they were in class and we couldn't pick them up on time. It consisted of packages of food, drinks, cards, extra clothing, etc...

Now, I'd say in the last 6 or 7 years, they stopped asking for emergency kits for the kids. I'm just baffled as to why they don't think of preparedness anymore.

Re: Why Are Preppers Hated So Much?
I think that it is human nature to want things to be easy, to just be handed everything we need (or want) from a benevolent "Mommy/Daddy" so we don't have to go through the hard work of obtaining it for ourselves. This would explain the recent election results.

Additionally, it is also human nature to be envious of people who seem to have "more" than we do.

IMHO, the government is WELL aware of this. Just like the current attacks on "the rich" are calculated to instill jealousy in those who consider themselves to be NOT "rich". The same philosophy is being used to whip up resentment in those who for one reason or another have NOT made any preparations for disaster which may occur. They don't consider that we have denied ourselves indulgent pleasures in order to add to our pantry, they just see our pantries and want them for themselves without any of the work or sacrifice it took for us to build them in the first place.

Honestly, considering that the whole Nation has seen the DISMAL government response to Sandy and Katrina, I can't believe that EVERY American is not stocking up on food and water (at least), so that they do not become like Esau, who sold his inheritance rights for a bowl of stew.

Prepping can make for an easy life. No debt, no need to go to the store more than once a month, lots to do when/if I feel like it, creating value and keeping it in a usable form.

If you make something and consume it, it is not taxed at any level. It's just yours for the fun of creation and consumption. Leaving money and "division of labor" out of your personal system leads to a fun, relaxed, and self-realized life.

It also makes you realize that you're highly independent of anything other than you, since you've lived at the margin and in bounty.

Re: Why Are Preppers Hated So Much?
There are MANY reasons for 'prepping", and not all of them involve the government response (or lack of it) in an emergency.

Back in the mid-70's, my husband and I decided that we were going to move to Oregon. We visited Oregon (staying with friends) and he was hired for a position in a trucking company which hauled cattle, we made arrangements to rent a house, and had everything set up before we went back home to pack. By the time we came back, the bottom had dropped out of the cattle industry, the company which had originally hired him was on the verge of closing, and there were no jobs (this was 1975 - anyone still remember the gas lines and unemployment associated with that time period?). We couldn't have afforded to move back, even if we'd wanted to. Well, even though he'd grumbled about packing and moving all of our "preps", we were grateful that we had them. We lived for 3 months off of our food stockpile, and it sure was a lot easier to ride it out until we found jobs knowing that at least we didn't need to worry overmuch about if we were going to have something to eat!

So, for those who scorn people who "prep", my question to you would be "And how secure is YOUR job?".
