What scenario are we going with were the entire world has no food and everyone is attack each other?
lol.
Because if its "end of the world", you'll end up like everyone else "eventually"...

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 4281714

It seems you live in a conveniently black and white universe. There is a world of possibilities between where we are now and 'end of the world' as you put it. Having some of your assets as stores is probably better than money in the bank - given the way prices are rising.
It could also see you through some short term upheaval till things are calmer.
Or in the worst case scenario, it could buy valuable time while society rebuilds itself.
Of course there remains the possibility that we will all get swamped by a b* big wave. Or you may fall under a bus tomorrow. Or have a heart attack and die. So many possibilities...
But that doesn't stop most of us having home insurance etc. I don't see much difference.

This is the best article I have ever read about the importance of prepping that could be forwarded on to those who need a good wakeup call. I urge you to read the whole article and send it to those you think it might help. I did. Did even one of you get more serious after reading this?

(Less than 50% rule followed)

What horrors they will likely face after a cave-in of their nation’s economy, war, geophysical upheaval, or whatever crisis is bad enough to disturb or stop their nation from working and functioning? There are plenty of very potential SHTF events that are simply awaiting a catalyst to trigger them.

• The Non-Prepper (NP) has to realize right off the bat that 911 and other emergency calls in will be met with silence or some recording telling the caller not to panic.

•The (NP) that has no reliable self defense that can stop an attacker, will not get help from public services, and will become a victim of rape, assault, torture, or murder.

•The (NP) that has no reliable self defense and will not only be at the mercy of criminal elements, but also have to contend with many desperate animals, some with rabies.

•The (NP) that has no food will either have to find food or be ready to beg for food or worse, like sacrificing their bodies or other horrible acts or things to get a bite of food.

•The (NP) will have to go through the worst, most rancid conditions of garbage to just maybe find what they should have stored up.

•The (NP) will go through panic and near if not total psychosis looking for any water source right before their bodies begin shutting down during advanced stages of dehydration.

•The (NP) will go through unbearable trauma when their children and other people around them are crying, screaming, and suffering with intense hunger pains in their stomachs.

• The (NP) will have to deal with the awful stench of rotting wastes from many sources because they have not taken the effort to even store up waste disposal plastic bags.

•The (NP) will have disease and pathogens everywhere, not only because they have no trash disposal means, but because they haven’t prepared how to deal with trash and waste.

•The (NP) will have to live in very primitive conditions after things around them deteriorate rapidly, because they have neglected putting away anything to make life more bearable.

•The (NP) and those around them will likely develop all sorts of infective skin rashes from the lack of insight of storing up toilet paper. Imagine the smell for a moment.

•The (NP) will have to handle biting insects and other vermin that will collect amoungst the filth that will pile up. No pest control stored up along with no other supplies.

•The (NP) will have no way of treating sickness certain to follow a SHTF event, no first aid and likely no training or knowledge about how to treat the ill on top of this.

•The (NP) will have sick and dying people around them because of not being able to treat minor injuries. Didn’t even stock up on disinfectives. Unsanitary conditions lead to infection.

•The (NP) and others around them will experience much grief as they watch helplessly as their family members literally die of starvation right in front of their eyes.

•The (NP) won’t believe how desperate hunger drives them and those that mean everything to them to “trying” to eat food that taste so bad it gags them and comes back up.

•The (NP) will likely have family and friends around them that have also not prepared committing suicide because they can’t take it any longer.

•The (NP) will witness some of those people around them lose any sense of civilized humanity in them and behave like wild animals after some time from lack of necessities.

•The (NP) and family members, maybe friends also, will at some point end up barbecuing or eating raw the family dog, cat, bird, any pet dear to everyone for food.

•The (NP) will likely get into physical fights with other family members over any scrap of food available as rational thoughts are lost to wanton hunger.

•The (NP) as many other (NP’s) will eventually go out of any safety of their home looking for food and or water, become disorientated and lost, and die a hard death somewhere.

•The (NP) that is “lucky” enough to find some government help will likely have to almost sell their soul, probably all their freedom, to get tiny rations – just enough to keep them alive.

•The (NP) will see widespread violence and barbarism that will shock them to the core and will wish that they had purchased some form of firearm and stocked up on ammunition.

•The (NP) better get used to attempting to explain the children and other adults why they wasted all that money on junk, and didn’t buy any emergency food and other supplies.

•The (NP), no matter how positive they are will drop quickly into depression and lose willpower as having nothing to hold on to does this, along with lack of any nutrition.

•The (NP) will feel the worst guilt imaginable as they hear their family moaning in anguish from lack of anything to eat, knowing they could have done something to prepare.

•The (NP) will most likely not see the rebuilding and recovery after A SHTF event. They will, like almost all NP’s, be statistics. Some will die hours or a day before help arrives.

•The (NP) from lack of food, drinking bad water, no light at night, the horrid smells, no good self defense, the overall horror, will often be paralyzed with fear and despair, blank stare.

•The (NP) is totally helpless after SHTF, will have to rely totally on charity of those prepared to live. They will take all sorts of desperate measures likely to get them shot. They’ll attempt to eat hazardous foods like an animal trapped in a house will do, and get sick and suffer much before dying. The (NP) will likely die (ugly and hard) as they lived, unprepared for anything.

If we were to use one single word to describe the torments that someone who “chooses” not to prepare will go through after a true you know what hits the fan it would be “PREVENTABLE”.

What this article neglects to mention is that it may be a scenario the preppers didn't prep for that happens.
What if an asteroid hits and wipes out all of your prepped stock?
Or an ice age comes and freezes everything?
How about all the criminals who know you stocked up and want to take what you have?
Eventually you will be out of stock then what?
I'm not saying prepping isn't a good idea but you cannot prep for everything that could go wrong.
Considering the government has already passed the bill to confiscate your stock how long do you think you'll be able to keep it?
Personally I hope that whatever happens hits us so quick that we never felt it coming.
 Quoting: Awake but dreaming


The cool thing about prepping is the build-in redundancy. Many preps are useful over a wide variety of crisis scenarios. So, while no on can prepare for every possible emergency, many basic preps can help to overcome the vast majority of them. That's why it's wise to think these things through in order to get the most prep bang for your buck.

If a Prepper loses his/her stock, he should know how to replace it or survive without it, even in a crisis. Prepping is not just about accumulating stuff. It's also about mental/emotional preparedness, learning skills, raising situational awareness, problem solving, improvising, etc. Proper Prepper plans provide for perished preps.

If an ice age suddenly materializes before the Prepper, he'll just move south to where the green stuff still grows.

All the criminals should not know about the Prepper's stuff. If they do, he's already failed at operational security. (OPSEC) And if they do know, he should relocate himself and his stuff somewhere safer, with less criminals standing around looking at his stuff. Plus, if the Prepper has family and buddies who have a good means of self-defense, they collectively have a better chance at protecting his stuff in case of an attack.

A good Prepper is smart enough to know that an extended crisis will drain him of all of his stuff through use, and that he will need to also prepare to replace that stuff when it runs out. Good Preppers are not ignorant of this need.

The best way to achieve that is by becoming self-sufficient as much as possible with renewable food sources such as garden vegetables, grains, fruit trees and micro-livestock. With renewable food sources and other needed but renewable resources, he can then barter his excess for some other things he may not have but might need, such as medicines, ammo & fuel, if he has already run out of his own stock. Edible food & clean water will always be in need, even if every other aspect of commerce and barter fails.

Having the government confiscate your stock is a real threat that needs to be discussed. Basically, it appears that you only have two realistic options:

1. Hide your stock (& the farm) so well that they will never find them.
2. Move yourself to another jurisdiction, away from the government that is threatening to steal everything you own. Not all governments of the world are preparing to steal their subjects' farms and food stocks.

If you and your family were walking along a road one afternoon, and then you noticed that you were standing on some train tracks; then you looked up and noticed a train was coming right at you, would you desire to step out of the way, or would you rather it hit you and your family so quick that you never felt it coming?

The people who fled Hitler's, Mao's & Stalin's tyrannies, chose to get out of the way. What happened to those who ignored those trains?

I think they'll last longer than that. Desperate people can become creative.

But I wouldn't give them more than 6 months, tops.

Even the prepper will eventually run out of things.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14998685

This is true. That's why the Prepper needs to also become a Producer. Then he will achieve balance.

That is the only sustainable course of action over an extended crisis.

Prep now to live self-sufficiently, without the comforts of civilization. That means have food for when the food runs out. But that also means produce your own food (or at least prepare to do so) in order to provide food sustainably into the future.

Perhaps you've heard the old saying?:

Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day.
Teach him to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.

It's a similar concept:

Store food & other essentials now for your short-term needs.
Then grow & raise your own food for as long as needed into the future for your more permanent needs.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16071591

•The (NP) that is “lucky” enough to find some government help will likely have to almost sell their soul, probably all their freedom, to get tiny rations – just enough to keep them alive.

•The (NP) will see widespread violence and barbarism that will shock them to the core and will wish that they had purchased some form of firearm and stocked up on ammunition.

•The (NP) better get used to attempting to explain the children and other adults why they wasted all that money on junk, and didn’t buy any emergency food and other supplies.

•The (NP), no matter how positive they are will drop quickly into depression and lose willpower as having nothing to hold on to does this, along with lack of any nutrition.

•The (NP) will feel the worst guilt imaginable as they hear their family moaning in anguish from lack of anything to eat, knowing they could have done something to prepare.

•The (NP) will most likely not see the rebuilding and recovery after A SHTF event. They will, like almost all NP’s, be statistics. Some will die hours or a day before help arrives.

•The (NP) from lack of food, drinking bad water, no light at night, the horrid smells, no good self defense, the overall horror, will often be paralyzed with fear and despair, blank stare.

•The (NP) is totally helpless after SHTF, will have to rely totally on charity of those prepared to live. They will take all sorts of desperate measures likely to get them shot. They’ll attempt to eat hazardous foods like an animal trapped in a house will do, and get sick and suffer much before dying. The (NP) will likely die (ugly and hard) as they lived, unprepared for anything.

If we were to use one single word to describe the torments that someone who “chooses” not to prepare will go through after a true you know what hits the fan it would be “PREVENTABLE”.

And yet, if you DO prepare for what's coming, then you are categorized as a homegrown "terrorist".

But that just depends on where you live.
