While we all agree everyone should be prepared for just about any emergency as reasonably possible, not everyone agrees about the details of preparing. How much food to stock, weapons or no weapons, water storage and a host of other topics are reasons for disagreement.
Then there are those who want to know what is going on in the world and around town so as not to be caught unaware. These people are thinkers and pay attention to the news so they know what the most likely threats might be and when. These preppers act accordingly.
Still another philosophy comes from preppers who don’t want to pay attention to world events and think those who do are wasting their time. Their thought is that it doesn’t matter when or how a disaster happens if you are prepared.
It all comes down to one thing really. Knowledge. Not only knowledge, but belief in that knowledge. Own the information. Make information based decisions without having to think about them when time is important. That means learning something so well that you don’t second guess yourself when the worst is happening.
