Prepper meme is a marketing scam, a dangerous one

Preppers, people preparing for system collapse, are an invention for marketing products related to survival during system collapse.

This is a dangerous business for the customers and society in general.

First of all, the idea that you will sit out in the country with a gun and be safe, is ridiculous. When systems collapse, gangs will form. What will you do when twenty SUV's full of armed thugs drive up to your hideout?

The safest place is among people who are aware, active, and united. Being armed guarantees nothing. Unity brings out the power of people. With this power, you can get guns if you need them.

Currently, people are watching corporate news on TV and getting brainwashed by a steady stream of anecdotal events. Anecdotal thinking makes you stupid.

We should encourage people to turn off the TV and get involved in the community.
