I have noted that many state that they tried to “convert” or teach others, be it friends, family and the like. When they didn’t immediately fall into lock-step, or buy into their favorite scenario, those that just wouldn’t listen were abandoned effectively.

These same people are often the ones who are the most vocal about those friends/family who make comments like, “When SHTF, I’m coming to your house”, and follow that up with something like “No you won’t, I’ll meet you at the door with a gun.”
