Why Most Doomsday Preppers Will Die
Why all preppers should watch the two videos I posted below (“Why most doomsday preppers will die”), and what to do about it.
Whether any of us is willing to admit it or not–individually or as small groups typically a family–we will not be prepared for a long term WROL (without rule of law) scenario. We have seen WROL happen to a minor extent after hurricanes such as Andrew and Katrina. These were just regional disasters and plenty of help was on the way. If you extrapolate from that what would happen in a national disaster (such as a long term national grid outage), a strong door and lots of ammo are not going to make you and your family safe. If the local and state governments become ineffective, an individual or family’s security plan is not going to cut it for long.
The reason I like those two videos is that they accentuate one of main the points I discuss in “Prepping for a Suburban of Rural Community”: collective security. A town with all its able bodied men and women will be better able to provide meaningful security than just you with an AR-15. Sorry folks, but you’re not Rambo. I don’t care how good you are, one you against twenty armed thugs is just crappy odds.
Preppers in WROL
So what is the antidote for WROL? Don’t let WROL happen in the first place. If your local government is prepared and does not become ineffective and has a plan for security, then WROL is not likely to happen in your town.
So, I encourage all preppers to watch the two videos below and think about your own limitations vis-à-vis security. I discuss this in detail in the book, and I hope if you find merit to what I’m saying here (and realize that a lot of people will be thinking exactly what the narrator in those videos is saying), you will consider reading “Prepping for a Suburban or Rural Community.”
A prepared family in a prepared community has a much better chance of survival than a “lone wolf” does.
