    I believe this to be true. In an event of the scale implied, no one's actually prepared. You will not survive on your own, no matter how much prepping you think you've done.

    My hope is that everyone is somewhat prepared. [e.g. 2 weeks worth of food and water] for starts.
    There's no better example of that than watching what happens after the first week in a major disaster, like Katrina or Sandy or an earthquake or tsunami. I've seen it first hand.

    It would surprise most Americans how quickly our populous can retrograde to a third world survival mode. There are many that come together and help each other, but for those that have been reliant upon others for so long, tend to become dangerous to others when that pipeline is disrupted since they have no experience of making it on their own.

    Thought I would start this and let everyone comment later.


    Are YOU prepared? Because if you're not, YOU ARE A BURDEN ON THOSE OF US WHO ARE.
    Then you will be burdened. Most people are in no WAY prepared for a major and prolonged power outage. Those who don't live in the boondocks of forest/plains/wilderness will, by necessity, share their preparations or die protecting them. If that kind of Armageddon happens, no one will be sufficiently prepared. You will share. Or you will die.

    What I am telling you is that if you're in the minority, your attitude will last about as long as it takes the majority find and ****ing eat you. So maybe you want to take a more engaging approach and try to educate as many people as possible instead of coming off like a dick.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    If those who are prepared are in the minority, how well-armed they are won't matter a damn.

    He isn't coming off as a dick. By starting this thread, he's doing exactly what you said he should do... Educate others.

    What impressed me is that you aren't necessarily counting on "stockpiling." You are living your life with self-sufficiency. Bottled water runs out. Wells rarely. Water will become the new gold. Ammunition won't be a bad investment either.
