Prepper's Will - Seeking friend for the end of the world   Hardcore survivalists and preppers cherish the lone-wolf scenario and it goes something like this: The world is crumbling and cities collapse into mayhem. But we, the preppers are well equipped for the end of the world and we are the last chance of humanity since we can withstand anything faith throws at us. Our society is no longer built on everyday trust and neighborly reliance, but do you want to be alone in the end?

 The world around us is full of unfriendly strangers and nobody cares anymore about the person next to him. If the other guy doesn’t take care of himself…well, then to hell with him and his legacy. It’s a dog eat dog world and only the fittest survive. The media keeps bombarding us with nothing but violence, tragedy and sadness. It’s us or them!

And it is true, in any major, long-term disaster, preppers and survivalists could face deadly threats from desperate and unprepared people. The only problem when it comes to “them” is that they are much more numerous than us and a lone-wolf scenario doesn’t work like in the movies. There’s no one to yell “Cut!” when a scene goes wrong and life doesn’t give you do-overs.

The fact is, for most of rural people, one of the biggest things they’re going to face in the event of SHTF is this: a need to join forces with others who are in the same boat and who share similar beliefs.

We need a circle of well-prepared friends more than we need five guns and a ton of ammo, we need to make connections with trust-worthy people. And, we need to do this because there is a preparedness truth that some of us chose to ignore: no matter how well prepared we think we are, we will always lack something. It may be something obvious or it may be something obscure, it may be something we had that got lost or damaged, or used up. Don’t fool yourself, we will lack something no matter how good we think we have it.

You can’t wait for FEMA or the National Guard when a disaster strikes and you can’t count on luck when the world becomes a dark place. Luck won’t prevent the grocery store to run out of food and luck won’t keep you safe.

You need to start preparing to count on each other. You need to get together with neighbors and friends and enhance each other’s preparedness. And it’s not something you have to do out of altruism, but out of pure practicality. In the end the goal is the same: we’ll all be better off when SHTF.

“What can I do to connect with my friends and neighbors when it comes to preparedness matters?”, you may ask.

Well, you shouldn’t go running and tell just anybody what do you stock, where do you keep it and what guns and ammo you have stockpiled, and then ask them” Now show me yours”.

You can start with small steps and if some real disaster has recently struck your area, the aftermath gives a perfect opportunity to go to your neighbors and do a mutual check. You can find out what they run out of, where they screwed up and what they can do differently next time. You can get this info just by discussing with your neighbors without appearing to organize any sort of preparedness league. You can even make agreements with them: for example you could store some extra gasoline for them if they help you with medical emergencies or anything else that you might need during a disaster.

People are always worried about something because self-preservation is part of our nature. You have an opening to discuss about preparedness and you need to approach the people from your community.

You can start practicing mutual preparedness:

  Instead of selling your farm produce to your neighbors, start seeing what those neighbors might have to barter for them. Barter will be more useful than money in a serious disaster and it gives you a chance to know the people you are bartering with.

  Get involved in a food co-op because you can always establish a cooperative network based on the main element: food. They may be open to the idea of organically grown crops, hormone-free meats or bulk food purchases on a budget.

  If somebody in your circle of preppers has a pick-up truck and others don’t, the truck owner can offer to transport goods for a small fee or for barter. The same goes with any other type of machines that can be used by the community.

  You can find some neighbors and sign up for and commute to skill-building classes together. It doesn’t matter if you learn about first aid, home canning or defensive shotgun use as long as you do it with somebody else. It will help you stay committed and motivated to the activity but also to the people.

 Start offering to do things for your neighbors and ask them to do things for you, even if you can actually take care of everything yourself. It’s a good way of bonding and getting to know each other’s skills. It provides a good opportunity to learn whom you can trust and whether you yourself are trustworthy.

  If somebody close to you, especially relatives, feels unable to prepare for a disaster, see how you can change that by helpfulness and gentle persuasion. When you talk with certain people about preparedness, they feel overwhelmed, too unskilled or too poor to handle it all. Everybody is vulnerable to something and being prepared doesn’t mean you have to become an expert prepper, you have to make sure you increase your odds of survival and you have a fighting chance. Having a bug-out bag will make a huge difference and knowing how to fortify your home will keep your family safe. Everyone can start with small steps if the mindset is there.

  Garage sales are good occasions to know your neighbors and to stock up on preparedness supplies. You will be able to discuss with people from your community and know more about their prepping plans. If someone sells a camp stove because he never used it and thinks he never will, then that person might not be into prepping. But if someone sells a similar item because he got a better model, you might have some common topics to discuss. It’s all about knowing your neighbors and you can tell a lot about a person based on the stuff he owns.

  With those you must trust, talk openly about others in your community who might become a problem in harsh times. Those who are clueless about fending for themselves will get desperate and might become real troublemakers. Thieves or chronic freeloaders will bring down the community. Everyone deserves a chance, but I’m willing to consider it for people who ask for one in the first place and are willing to work for it, rather than for those who “make a mistake” and ask for forgiveness and a second chance. When SHTF, there will be no luxury such as second chances and you must act first in order to survive the fall.

  Safety in numbers will save you and the community. Your home could be on a map outlining evacuation routes for your area, the government could make your propriety an assembly area just for the fact that it is situated above the flooding zone. Regardless the scenario, there could be many who will come your way and most of “them” won’t have peaceful intentions. What then? You can’t keep up your fort for long if you are all alone. Joining a militia or having a group of trustworthy friends will help you deal with the masses and if some will try their luck with a just one person, nobody will be foolish enough to go against a number of well-armed individuals.

  Another aspect that we need to consider during a crisis is what to do with friends and family that come rushing in, knowing you’ve been prepping for anything and your home is a safe haven. I know a few people that said “if anything goes wrong we’ll just move in with you” and although it sounds like a joke, I’m pretty sure it isn’t. There will always be someone who knocks at your door during a time of need and you just can’t turn your back on them. They are the “friendly freeloaders” and although you are well intended, odds are you won’t be able to take care of them forever. This is why they need to be integrated in your local community and here is where it gets tricky. If you are a lone wolf you won’t be supported by your community and even worse, you will be seen as a threat if you bring in outsiders when things turn bad. However, if you have a good reputation amongst your peers, if you have the same interests and if they know how the skills of someone can help the entire community, it will be much easier to integrate others and give them a job insides the community. It is important to show how the new arrivals can help everyone and it can be done much easier if there is room for debate.

  No man is an island and we should make sure we have someone to spend our time with, when the world around us dies. The government will tell you to wait for their help, to be passive and rely on experts and outsiders. They will ask you to behave like dependent children and wait for big daddy when in reality, you have people you can trust around you. People, who can help us out or, if need be, take us in.

Would you rather wait alone or turn to others, your friends and neighbors, when the world ends?

Stay Safe and God Bless!

    3.11 and Fukushima were terrorism attacks by U.S.A , Israel , Korean, Zainichi(Korean in Japan),Tabuse Korean, Vatican(Not only ‘Peter Hans Kolvenbach’, it’s Vatican attack. ) and so on. Our Japanese have evidence, and famous anti-3.11 terrorism journalist ( ‘Benjamin Fulford’ and ‘Richard Koshimizu’ and ‘Izumi’) are terrorist puppets. Zionist likes to occupy their opponent idea strategically.

    ・All of wars are fake.
    Russia and Saudi Arabia ink nuclear energy deal, exchange invites
    http://www.rt.com/news/268198-russia-saudi-nuclear-agreements/
    Why does Russia Government have the strong-tie with former Japanese prime minister Hatoyama(Gnosticism Illuminati) as the most important Japanese? Hatoyama is famous that he links ‘Al-Qaeda’.

    ・All of religions are cabal tool.
    Catholic’s war plots and enslavement history.
    http://www.amazon.co.jp/ウサギたちが渡った断魂橋〈上〉―からゆき・日本人慰安婦の軌跡-山田-盟子/dp/4406023518/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1438465167&sr=8-1&keywords=ウサギたちが渡った断魂橋
    Catholic missionaries are the first step for enslavement in Asia and Africa. Then Catholic always maneuvered conflicts by their devotee. All of Religions are inconsistent in saying their favorite word ‘religious liberty’, while They never forgive saying true history of religions what religions have been always related with wars.

    ・‘BIS’ protected ‘TABUSE Korean’(Japanese Emperor….etc) assets during WW2.
    (I have evidences about ‘BIS’ documents)
    No one say about where money comes from for incidents and wars.
    Japan could import oil from Zionist company during WW2 via Nihon Suisan Corp what was owned by Japanese Emperor. Japan did not have oil stock for 4 years war(WW2).

    【Tabuse System】

    (Tabuse System is famous in Japan.)

    Japan has been under Korean colonial rule since ancient time..「Emperor」「Religion」「Money System」「Mafia」…etc. All of these instruments are stronger than visible tyrant system tools for dictators. Ancient Jewish came to Japan and established shrines all over the Japan. Rhetoric of the emperor and religions also came from out-side Japan for non-Japanese origin.

    The West(Rothschild) replaced The Meiji emperor with another Korean, [Japanese National Archives,(1110001)A100317160055, Tanaka Mitsuaki document….etc]Omuro Toranosuke who came from the poor ‘Tabuse’” Korean village in Yamaguchi Prefecture became The Japanese Meiji Emperor for The West. Japanese Prime Minister Abe’s families are also “Tabuse” Koreans. They are xenophobia against Japanese and have their own strong glass ceiling strategies for Japanese enslavement what is like “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” for Jewish. All of Japanese have been under “Tabuse” System for The West since before The WW2, and They have strong ties with the their ancient land of Korean Peninsula.

    WW2 was fake war for Zionists and “Tabuse”Koreans. They like to occupy all of ideas strategically.[Right-Wing vs Left-Wing, Russian side vs U.S.A.side, Nuclear Industries vs Anti-Nuclear ,Political party A vs Political Party B, industrial business vs environmental group ....etc]

    Japanese prime minister Abe’s grandfather is Kishi Nobusuke(He was a Japanese prime minister after WW2.), he committed massacres in China during WW2 as well as Sasagawa( His families are still ruling over all of Japan) and Kodama(He was one of the biggest right-wing Yakuza).They are from Korean National and worked for Rothschild.Japanese Emperor families and North Korea families are same blood and having strong relationship.

      This is all totally interesting, but what does it have to do with the end of the world?

    • Anonymous

      And what does it have to do with finding the End of the World a friend?

      • hisa

        1. I am going to establish new religion.

        http://www.onrw.net

        2. We are going to have 100% nationalize central bank and 100% nationalize local central bank(It’s like communist system, set a currency expiry date, guarantee life (house, food, medical,education and so on). Innovation for all civilian life up-grade our life, simultaneously
        all civilian support scientists innovation and their success.

  • KG!#@!

    Why not just skip all of the doom and gloom stuff and just participate in America’s Democratic Republic as a citizen? If more so-called “preppers” would stop giving up on the idea of America then America would not need to be “destroyed” to save it like so many villages in Vietnam.
