The word prepper has an incredible stink on it. For most people who have seen the fringe in action, with the gasmasks and the strange isolationist attitude it’s understandable why people bristle when they hear the word prepper. The truth of the matter is that there are many more people out there who are preppers, consider themselves preppers and would be considered preppers. Most are just regular people who stock food
, energy, first aid, water and weapons for any number of reasons.
One of the most important jumps our society needs to make is a vast respect for the planets ability to ruin your life. If there was a gang in your neighborhood who was known for knocking down homes, flooding them and burning them. People would be talking and preparing for these gang attacks. We know that tornadoes and floods come all the time but people raise eyebrows when you talk about prepping for disaster.
