Think doomsday and panic-mongers if you want, but the bottom line is the same for *everyone* -- you are either ready to sustain yourself for a reasonable (or even unreasonable) amount of time, or you aren't.
Personally, we have food, yeah, and we have skills that will do us well in several areas, but I'm not convinced we can last out catastrophe on a continued scale at all.
Maybe if folks stopped playing those SIMS games, the RPGs, and even those idiotic FaceBook games (I know...I have a farm in Farmville...and I think I'm a CountryLife nut and Barn Buddy...I was suckered into them. I don't get on the computer...I'm just as stupid with the games on there...) And put some thought into real life skills and their futures, we'd all be better off. Too many people still, after all the bail-outs and those folks still scamming the system to their continued benefit, believe the world is a good place and golly gee Beaver, folks are really deep down good at heart.
I'm not cynical, but hello...I have to do for myself using the skills and the mindset of a prepper or we suffer greatly. No one offered us poor folk a bail-out. It's called culling. Those who don't fit the bill, make the grade, and don't (it's not a matter of "can't" at all...it's total, blind-led "don't") simply don't make it long.
You can tell those who have a fighting chance. Surviving the coming depression and collapse...it's not necessarily those folks burying beans, bullets and bandaids in the back 40, though certainly they stand a good chance at it...it's the everyday folk who have altered their lifestyle to suit what isn't commonplace anymore. It's not the backyard garden totally...it's the half acre homestead with raised beds, chicken tractors, a goat or two in the garage where the 2 vehicles used to sit. It's those who ditched a lot of the everyday things they've always lived with and learned some new ways to spend their time. It's the folks really looking at where they spend their money, and double- and triple-thinking every penny that leaves their pockets and planning what is truly important. It's those changing their surroundings to include more home things...finding useful endeavors to produce income because, now, they discovered they don't need all that 'stuff' to be happy and thrive.
It's not doomsday, armageddon, TEOTWAWKI or any of the other terms you hear daily as you browse around. It is more accurately termed 'progress'. Changes are coming and you are either ready for them or you're still standing with a simple-minded grin thinking the president will put a chicken in every pot and point you toward prosperity...around that corner over there, right?
