freedom, the non-prepper folks who think all they need is their guns is that though they may initially have some limited success, it isn’t likely to last long. A survival model that assumes both that others will have whatever you need and that you can take it from them isn’t sustainable. They will run into resistance and they’re not always going to find what they need. Bear in mind that most homes will be out of food within a week and that unfiltered water isn’t going to be safe. Each day goes by they will have to hunt harder and further to sustain themselves, and they’ll be subject to more resistance.
