RELATED: How to Become a Prepper
Prepping Concerns in 2021 and Beyond
Remember the good old days of prepping when we thought about hypothetical disaster situations and didn’t have the same sense of urgency we have these days? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying NO sense of urgency, I’m saying we thought about these manmade disasters as something we probably had a little time to prepare for.
These days it seems that anything can and will happen and that something big is just around the corner. It seems as though we are standing at the edge of a cliff, and behind us is a herd of social justice warriors, politicians, and the mainstream media personalities running full speed towards us.
I have always been the type of person that prepares for the worst and hopes for the best, but these days hoping for the best seems like a myopic fantasy. Will it be some sort of full-fledged SHTF scenario? Will it be something slow-burning that affects us for an extended period of time? Who knows, but it sure feels like change is coming, and it’s coming sooner than most people think.
I make sure and reassess my preparedness plans periodically, but this time it seems to hold more importance than it ever has before. Could I just be paranoid and being a “Doomsdayer”? I suppose so. But I’d rather be a Doomsdayer than have my head buried in the sand with my fingers crossed, hoping everything will be fine.
When you have a leak in the roof, you fix it before it ruins the whole house. Our country has a huge hole in its roof, and instead of fixing it, everyone just grabs an umbrella and waits for the rain to stop. That’s all fine and good until it starts to rain again.
My point is, we can only control what we can control. We need to do everything in our power to do what we can, and then let the cards fall where they may. Reassessing your preparedness priorities won’t give you every answer, but it will give you a better idea about where to focus your time and energy.
Personal Doomsdays, Natural & Man-Made Disasters
We know that having a well-rounded preparedness plan means prepping for anything life might throw our way. When it comes to surviving personal doomsdays and natural disasters, there isn’t much we can do but learn and prepare. There is nothing we can do to stop many of these acts of God from happening, but we can (and should) help ourselves to survive them.
Manmade disasters on the other hand are self-inflicted wounds that can be avoided, but all too often are not. No one pays attention until it’s too late. On an individual level, there is not much we can do, but as a society, we are responsible for letting these things happen.
As a society we have allowed politicians to become corrupt, we’ve allowed big business to infiltrate the government, and we’ve allowed the MSM to dictate how we think and feel. Because life has been so good for so long, we have taken for granted the life and liberty we hold so dear.
