Once too often, preppers have been called wierdos, paranoid, worriers, pessimists, fools, and many other demeaning names. It may be true that there are those who take preparedness to the extremes but most of us are plain, ordinary people who care just as much for their loved ones, families, properties, nature and even their country as any other citizen would. In fact we are regular, overall nice men and women.
Top 10 Problems for Non-Preppers When TSHTF
So what makes us different from those that do not prepare?
As we always say, forewarned is forearmed. We do not believe that everyone and everything comes from another planet, here to harm or take us (paranoia). Preppers do not stress themselves to the point of getting high blood pressure over a bad thing to happen in the future (worry). We don’t think that there is no hope (pessimism) or that, we have intellect and some of us have higher IQ than the next guy (fools).
What we do know is that if and when disaster strikes, we will be the most likely to survive. This isn’t out of arrogance but simply because we have educated ourselves and prepared for the inevitable.

Here Are 10 Things Non-Preppers Will Be Forced To Face When TSHTF. (#8 Is REALLY Going To Hit Them Hard!)
It’s finally happened…
The worst has occurred. The grid has gone down. The balloon has gone up.
While you were one of the “smart ones” who believes in preparing yourself and your family to survive the coming collapse, your neighbors and fellow townsfolk were clueless.
And now the world looks much different than yesterday morning when they woke up.
You know something they don’t.
In fact, here are…
The Top 10 “Wake-Up Calls” For Non-Preppers When TSHTF
1. You look outside your window and only see darkness.
Our government has admitted that our electrical grid is being held together by little more than duct tape and bubble gum.
We’ve had events as “harmless” as a tree branch falling 5 states away cause entire regions of the U.S. to go black.
Without power, without street lights, urban environments become a pitch-black nightmare when the sun goes down.
2. Your family is complaining of being hungry and thirsty all the timeemp6_250x200-5f0e3a5
With grocery stores picked clean and chaos still ruling the world outside your home, you’ll be left to survive with only what you’ve collected so far.
In some scenarios, without electricity to run the city’s pumps (or your well), there won’t be any water coming out of your faucet.
Even if there is, if the utility infrastructure collapses and water treatment fails, the water coming out of your pipes could be dangerously contaminated and come out brown and smelling like chemicals or sewage.
People can only live 3 days without water – even less in hot, stressful conditions.
Even for survivalists who hoarded food and water early, you won’t want to run through your stockpile too soon so rationing will be a big part of your response plan… and you’ll need to make hard decisions.
For non-preppers, it will be much worse!
Now let us turn things around. What are non-preppers going to do when things go wrong, or worse when SHTF?
There are actually many things that this type of person will have to face one day or another: an emergency, a natural disaster or The Big One. At this point it is already obvious how difficult life could get for those who haven’t prepared. This is not to prove that they will perish. It is just that their chance of surviving will be lower than that of the prepper or survivalist.
In crisis situations, the non-prepper would not know what to do. Panic would be the first reaction. After that they either move and try to do something or turn into statues, immobilized. When SHTF, they would look for a prepper and ask them to share some supplies. If the preppers allow themselves to be found, that is.
