Hello my friend and welcome to another post here on American Preppers online! Today we are going to look at the alternate worlds the non-Preppers live in and why they try to hold on to it so hard. I know that you like me, have run into to those who simply refuse to accept the possibility of an SHTF world, no matter how many facts you show them. They simply don’t want to accept that it is a real possibility, so why is that? In today’s post, we are going to take a look at this subject so grab a cup of coffee and sit back while we chat.
I recently had a conversation with a young man like that who is convinced that all of us Preppers are crazy people. No matter how many times I pointed out absolute warning signs, he just kept insisting that there was nothing to it and that things would not change in our lifetime. He insists that things are fine in the world and there is absolutely nothing to worry about. Now let me point out that he is far from being the first person to tell me this. Sadly there are millions of people like him in the world today. So why does he cling to the idea that things will remain as they are throughout his entire lifetime. This young man went so far as to insist that if things were to get bad, it would undoubtedly be the fault of Preppers and Patriots for trying to stand in the way of progress. Now I have met a lot of people who insist on living in a fairytale world, but this was a new one.
So why do people cling so desperately to these unrealistic notions? The simple answer is that they are scared. They are scared to death of the thought that they could lose everything they have worked so hard for. The thought that it could all be taken away is simply too painful for them to accept, so they chose to ignore it and pretend that it doesn’t exist. They will avoid others that do because they remind them of the truth that they will not face. These are mostly the same people who do not watch or read the news because they say it is too depressing and people smarter than them are handling it. All they want to do is to live in their alternate reality and feel safe and secure in the fact that they are successful and all is good in their little world regardless of the facts.
What is even scarier is that many of the younger generation are growing up so connected to the internet that they cannot even imagine living without it. To them it is like water and is a basic human right and will be there always, just like electricity. They are so far disconnected from the real world that they have no idea how to live without it and will suffer horribly when it all goes away. Instead of being outside learning how to build a camp fire, or a make shift shelter, they are busy texting and playing games on their computers. All they want to do is to live in their little world and feel safe, of course that is what we all want isn’t it? To feel safe that is? Fortunately for us however, we have opened our eyes and accepted the inevitable by preparing for what is coming, because we too want to feel safe in our world.
So how do you get through to these people and help them to see what is coming? Sadly I don’t know if you can. This is a hard thing to hear I know as I have two sisters that simply refuse to even hear anything about it. I know that when SHTF hits, they will be lost and there is nothing I can do about it. I am their big brother and it is my job to protect them, but can’t save someone who won’t accept the fact that they are drowning. I’m sure many of you have the same challenge and know just how heart wrenching it can be. I have two sons that are the same way; they simply refuse to see what is right in front of them. I still have hope for them however, because one is a big hunter and fisherman so he at least knows how to get some food to eat. My other son knows a lot about wild plants and natural medicine and can hunt too when necessary. I believe they would be able to survive. Despite all of this, neither will accept the need to prepare for what lies ahead. I am their father, so I will prepare for them as much as I can and at least be sure that they will have a fighting chance. This is what you do for your children, because no matter how old they are, they are still your children. Well, that is it for today and I hope you have enjoyed this post, so until next time, Stay Safe, stay strong and stay prepared!
