I think most of us agree that the path we are on is unsustainable. We don’t know when or how bad it will be. The only thing I can take comfort in is that I have prepared to the best of my abilities to date, try to get better every day, and know that my family is better prepared than most should some SHTF event happen.
Like many of you, I have given up on trying to convince anyone to prep. I have always done it gently, but if they can’t see it, I can’t do it for them.
Actually had one guy make fun of my garden. Said, “That’s why we have Kroger’s. Why waste your time planting you own stuff?” Just smiled and kept on checking the tomato plants. Really bright guy, but will not even notice the SHTF when it happens. Situational awareness absolutely nonexistent.
I wonder how many people like him are out there?
