From the Minnesota (metro area).
Personal Philosophy (to make sure we are like-minded): I do not believe a world ending event is what we are preparing for. In my opinion, a world ending event is exactly that. One would need to be more lucky than prepared to only survive a short amount of time any how. In other words, I’d rather run to the comet and see one last hoorah. With that said, I think there is world-changing events every single day. Just not usually in your back yard. Much of Africa has been in an apocalyptic state for–well forever. If I were in Greece right now, I would be looking to not be in Greece right now. Power grids can fail and no one in America is prepared but a few. This should be one concern of ours. It would not be the end of the world but riots happen for lesser events. People get crazy for lesser things than not having food immediately available to them. But people also come together in times of great need always giving us hope in humanity. We should all want to help by being one of those leaders that is prepared so we can help those who were not. If you agree we would be on the same page. (Again, I am not motivated by surviving extinction level events or looking to start a militia here.) Our common goal will be to create a network of individuals that don’t need to be persuaded that it is possible America might not have the rich comforts we are all so accustom to. Self sufficiency is a key goal. We should be convinced that many people are starting to recognize that the need for self sufficiency is important and that our future as a country lies in our ability to be self-sufficient individuals, communities, states, and country.
