we are, all of us, precipitously close to our 'normal lives' becoming very serious and genuinely mortal disaster. we have to be very clear-eyed about this!

there are no systems in place to save us, they have all been scrapped and sold for salvage. one weather event, one bit of police attention, one weight on the scale…we have to prepare.

and a lot of that means getting stronger and more resilient for ourselves and our friends, even (especially) when its hard

that means preparing for survival and preparing for defense.

you have to ask yourself questions like "what will i and the friends/family in my area do if we all lose power for a week? water? internet?"

understand the natural disasters that impact your area and what you need to be safe from them — the authorities will not protect you

i dont mean 'become a weirdo prepper and get off the grid immediately' i mean you need to prepare to not be helpless when shit gets worse

@kate
These days being a weirdo prepper is just the reasonable reaction the events around you.

@YellowGrue @kate

And yet somehow the weirdo preppers still manage to get it all wrong cuz a billion bullets and some buckets of grain are way less helpful than a propane heater and some easily edible backup food
