Preparedness ≠ Paranoia

Post by youonlywish on Sat Aug 13, 2011 11:39 pm

There has to be a line somewhere, however. We, in prepping for what may - or more importantly, what MAY NOT - must remember to keep full and rich lives ahead of our planning. It is important to be prepared, yes - but at the end of the day you can only do what you can do.

How true this is this article is. It can be looked at in both the prepared or paranoid. Examples might be having back up generators OR living off the grid completely and a hermit to all society. Another may be having your guns and ammo stored according to Canadian laws OR having a few firearms stratigically placed and fully loaded for a possible home invasion (breaking the law in the process).
BE PREPARED, NOT PARANOID...

My girlfriend calls me paranoid, but I'm slowly getting her on The Page.

One forced book at a time! haha

We have to remember that a number of popular tags and labels have become commonplace by both the uneducated and mass media alike.

If you keep that in mind - you'll get a good idea of where you fall.

I think, for the most part, "sheepdogs" are just great citizens who go the extra mile to be prepared for shit happening so they can be there for others. I think virtually any denomination of prepper/survivalist can be a sheepdog... so it's rather hard to define.

As for the media-induced fear people tend to have (or used to have for many years) of people who prepared for negative eventualities, I think it depends on which stereotypes/labels you fall under. I fall under quite a few of them and, because of that, I've had to keep pretty low-key.

I'm a dyed-in-the-cloth libertarian, a passionate supporter of a sovereign citizen's right to bear arms, founder and captain of a paramilitary support network, and an ardent survivalist. Half of my hikes are actually LRRPs, with OPORDs, briefings, and minor rehearsals. Not many people know these things about me, especially those close to home - but if they did I could just imagine what they'd say!

This attitude rules most of my adult life. I am an everydasy man with a wife, kids and a job. My idea of being a man is to be prepared for all of lifes emergencies big and small, weather cleaning a cut on your kids knee, being able to live off the land in case of emergency, do basic repairs on your truck to get you out of the bush, be able to face down robbers and home invaders, etc. Part of me also beleives in the ancient code of chivalry. We as srtong sheepdogs must not only take care of ourselves and loved ones but I think we should also be able and willing to help out those who cannot or even willnot help themselves. Sometimes fighting the wolves is as easy as escorting a young girl or old lady past a group of punks and provide a sheild for their bullying etc. it is even so simple as helping a frail person load their groceries at the store etc. I see a lot of people on the net talking about guns etc and how they will protect themselves and fight the "bad guys" but sometimes maybe all you have to do is lend a helping hand to fight someone else's wolves.

I'm sorry if this is disjoited and rambles but i am tired. so to sum up be prepared for all emergencies/threats/disasters but also help everyday to make this a better world for all and live your life to the fullest, don't hide away.
