Hello, my friend and welcome back! Every day since this quarantine started, I have heard nothing but whining from many who claim to be ready for SHTF. It really makes me wonder if they have what it takes to survive? Now grab a cup of coffee my friend and have a seat while we visit.
My wife and I went to the store the other day and were amazed to see all of the people out walking around. Then I came home and read about the protest going on at the State Capital here in Idaho. It seems like everywhere you look right now, people are complaining about having to stay at home.
The whole point of this quarantine is to help save people’s lives. They still have their internet, cable TV, radio and all of the comforts of home. Why is it so hard to stay at home? Now, don’t get me wrong, I do understand the need to work to pay your bills, but the Government is paying you money to stay home. While it may be nowhere near what you need to make ends meet, it should help some. If you’re a good Prepper, this quarrantine should be a walk in the park for you.
Having said all of that, I really worry about the ability of many Preppers to stay in isolation for months at a time when SHTF. If you can’t handle the isolation for a month or two, how will you handle a year or more? SHTF will mean you will not have any of the great things you can enjoy during this quarantine. No radio or TV or electricity, not even water or sewer.
If you can’t stand a month or two of isolation, what will you do when the hordes of hungry people come banging on your door for something to eat? Just look at all of the people out wandering around your town or neighborhood…These are the same people who will be coming for your food and supplies when SHTF.
They will say they are entitled to all of your belongings, just like they think they are entitled to get out and do what they want during this quarantine. If their actions result in the death of others, then so be it, is how they see it. This quarantine should scare the crap out of you because it should show you just how real the threat is.
So many Americans have become so spoiled, and think they are entitled to be taken care of while not offering anything in return. Just like a spoiled child, they will take on a herd mentality believing that if a group of people thinks the same way, then it must be true. They will kill for what they want and not think twice about it because, in their mind, they will be justified in their actions. Entitled to take whatever they want.
Prepping is not just about storing up food, supplies, and firearms. It’s about preparing for all aspects of an SHTF situation including being mentally prepared for long periods of isolation. It will not be easy but it will be necessary. When you see others whining about how horrible this virus quarantine is, make a mental note of who they are, they could be the very ones coming for your food when SHTF.
Well, that’s it for today my friend, and thanks for stopping by. Until next time, stay safe, stay strong, and stay prepared. God Bless America!
