This is one of 35 of the most common excuses and causes cited by the 99% of the population who don’t prepare.
22. Preppers / Survivalists are radical, paranoid, conspiracy driven out of touch with reality, I don’t want anything to do with them.
Fact or Answer. Out of touch with reality is depending on the government to come to your rescue when they simply can’t because of the magnitude of a particular disaster. Preparing and storing up food, water, and other needs has nothing to do with associating with anyone but your immediate family and friends. If you don’t like preppers and their way of thinking, no one is saying you have to become friends with anyone to store up what you need for later. Letting your personal views of people that prepare influence your family’s well being for the future makes no sense. Buying insurance in the form of what your family will need after it becomes no longer available for an undetermined period of time makes excellent common sense for everybody.
