I am a survivalist/prepper. I am also a left-wing progressive, although I have some “true conservative” (read: not what they call “conservative” in the press) fiscal beliefs. This puts me in somewhat rare territory, as most preppers out there are of the far right-wing persuasion, while most progressives can’t be bothered with this stuff.
I have a decent grasp of science. I am educated. I am not particularly religious. I am not paranoid. I am familiar with the proper use of the apostrophe, the dictionary, and the thesaurus. The same, from what I have seen, cannot necessarily be stated for most of the other prepper/survivalism sites out there. I want this site to be a little more rational.
I hope that this site helps you, the reader–either giving ideas to implement, ideas to talk about, or (if nothing else) a good chuckle.
I don’t think civilization is likely to wink out of existence overnight, as apparently do most other survivalists. Instead, I believe that our modern society is already undergoing a slow-motion collapse–so slow that most of us probably don’t even realize it’s happening. I think that our future will change with a whimper, not a bang. But it will change–and is changing.
I hope you’ll come with me on this journey. Welcome!
