The other day, I was perusing one of the more popular survival-related message boards. There was a conversation thread there that really made me shake my head at some of the responses.
The gist of the topic was, “What would you do if…?” The premise centered on being herded into the stadium in New Orleans just before Hurricane Katrina hit. There were a few practical suggestions as to what to do. Then, there were a ton of responses along the lines of, “That’d never happen to me! I wouldn’t allow it!”
Do you see the irony here? How many times have we heard that from sheeple. Yet, these are survivalists and preppers who, one assumes, argues about being better prepared for various potential catastrophes, yet are adamant that some things will just never happen.
As survivalists, we should look toward being prepared for EVERY eventuality, at least as best we can.
None of us has the inside track on what the future will bring.
Granted, many bad situations are the direct result of poor decision making and we should do what we can to think things through and plan for the most likely scenarios. But, who’s to say circumstances won’t force you into holing up at some sort of emergency shelter? If you are absolutely confident such a thing could NEVER happen to you, all I can say is you lack imagination.
Don’t ever think “It will never happen to me.” Fate has a decidedly wicked sense of humor and might decide to test your theory.
