OH! A PREPPER!
Mad Ogre recently expounded upon the concept, not just of being a prepper, but of being a dark prepper.
c/o Uprising USA.
Here’s the plan.
1. Secure your HQ.
2. Secure your local area.
3. Secure your People. Your Friends, Family, Loved ones… Those that may need help. Elderly, Young, Infirm. Make sure everyone is okay and has what they need to survive.
Now here’s where it gets gnarly…
4. Secure additional assets and supplies to insure longevity. Food, Medicines, other supplies and equipment.
Now comes the Dark part.
Now where I differ from the truly Dark, is that I would not use force on those that have the assets we’d be looking for. Force would be only to defend. This is all pretty clearly laid out in Uprising USA. Moving further, in Uprising UK, there is a scene where assets were taken unknowingly from another survivor who hid when they came to get it. When it was discovered that someone had a claim of ownership to the property, the person was fairly and justly compensated for what had been taken and an amiable conclusion was reached.
So really, maybe, I am not a Dark Prepper. Just a humble procurer of that which sustains life… an amicable prepper. A beneficent prepper. A Magnanimous prepper…(end)
Are YOU prepping (in any sense of the word?) Are you a DARK prepper? How far are you willing to go to secure sustainability for you and your family and friends?
Or is this all just largely a mental
exercise masturbation, a self-stroking cycle of like-minded folk, who like to play in the netherworld of TEOTWAWKI*?
Or is this about reasonableness? Preparedness? For natural disaster, fire, earthquake, hurricane?
And perhaps even extreme political disaster – like the monetary system failing and/or martial law being imposed?
As for me, I cannot afford to prep, much. I was once – during Y2K. The lady I was seeing, and her son had supplies, and arms. And security. And nothing happened.
Since that time, I’ve become disabled, and had to sell stuff. And some of it was stolen.
But, I do have a couple firearms, and ammunition. I figure that’s a good start.
The question remains, am I a DARK PREPPER?
The future will tell.
