Some of the scenarios outlined below may be frightening, as they should be, because when it hits the fan millions of people will be thrown into desperation with no hope of a solution. Be Informed provides a variety of point-by-point details that may and hopefully will convince the non-prepared individual to at least insulate themselves with the basic necessities.
I have become personally so disenchanted with the way people fail to prep. I have gotten into arguments over this and had cretins call me a fool because I put away food, water, and supplies.
I thought about this and the frustration that other preppers have with this laid back idiotic attitude that there is no need for preparation. Every one of these scenarios is something that has occurred to the non-prepper throughout history.
While strong images come to mind, the purpose is to jar some people out of their inaction and into action before it is too late. Preppers are good people and care much about those around them, and unless something does jar those around them that choose not to prep, their own survival chances could be reduced.
For every bit of food, water, ammunition, or supplies you sacrifice to the non-prepper, the fewer irreplaceable supplies are left for you and your family in a crisis situation.
Here are the awful consequences for those refusing to prep. As the world continues to decay at multiple facets, the common person has and continues to be lulled into a sense that everything is improving and will continue to for the distant future.
It is amazing how people become good conversationalists with most others discussing all the gossip related news, while becoming mentally tranquilized into a totally deceptive state of denial of truly dangerous issues of the times.
This is happening to millions of people in our own country, all around us, as we speak. These Americans, who once enjoyed the luxuries that modern living had to offer, are now at their wits end, with very little hope for a return to their previous lives.
Their credit cards are totally worthless. Their living conditions often make it difficult, if not impossible, to look presentable for job interviews. For many, the life of stability they knew just a short while ago is gone, replaced with fear and a constant stress to the point of nervous breakdown.
A personal economic meltdown is confined to the individual or family, or at worst a few families. With food assistance, rental assistance, homesless shelters, and family to turn to, even the most destitute are almost always able to find some sort of help — however menial.
It is no wonder with these known assistance programs, then, that people have forgotten or never thought to consider what happens IF and WHEN human civilization goes through a strong enough SHTF event.
If that happens on a mass scale what happens to everyone that needs help that has not prepared ahead of time? But who is delusional?
Those who see the signs around them and understand how vulnerable the system is, or those who believe that things never change, that politicians have their best interests at heart, and that if the worst happens the government will be there to provide everything they may need?
The misery from long term unemployment and lack of money is like a walk in the park compared to the severe anguish and dangerous conditions that await those who have failed to prepare for the aftermath of a large scale cataclysm. Many preppers have become deeply frustrated at those around them, especially those that truly mean something to them, because they simply refuse to put away anything at all for emergencies.
The prepper is usually a person that cares a lot and it is often difficult for them to take a tough stance towards the people that they care about. This is a very personal choice, and each of us will need to decide based on our own morals, ethics and personal relationships.
As a last ditch effort, discussing the following scenarios with the non-prepper may help them understand what life will be like without what has sustained them so comfortably for so long.
This is the hard reality the non prepper needs to understand: Without power the water company cannot get water to their faucets. Without water dehydration occurs within 24 hours. Dehydration causes much suffering before death. Where will they go to the bathroom and then where will they dispose of human waste?
There will be no clean water available anywhere, especially in major cities, and they cannot live more than about three days without it. Drinking dirty and polluted water will make them incredibly sick and accelerate the dehydration process.
Polluted water must be purified and that means having a good filter, bleach or other disinfectant, or fuel and something to boil water with. Understand just how fragile the power and the infrastructure is that pumps water to the public.
A breakdown in our power infrastructure or a cyber attack against utility systems will render them useless.
A single event can rapidly lead to a cascade of other events that would certainly collapse almost, if not, everything.Poverty is the scarcity or the lack of a certain (variant) amount of material possessions or money.
