Opsec is one of those double edged swords.
Too much and you are going it alone, no one to trade with, no help.
Too little and you end up on “Doomsday Preppers”.
Too many preppers fail to expand their circle beyond the tin foil hats.
They miss the utility of the hippie botanist who could make an anti viral tea and keep everyone healthy. Or the nail salon attendant who was an acupuncturist until she emigrated and isn’t certified here.
(I know both these people)
That fine line, its tough to tread.
