Preppers on TV are Idiots

Preparedness is like Fight Club.

The first rule of Fight Club is you don’t talk about Fight Club.

Advertising what you do and how you do to friends and neighbors is an invitation to have “guests” over if things go downhill. Telling the nation, (despite the seeming anonymity of being in a big country and “hard to find”) is sheer idiocy.

Has anyone ever seen the episode of the Twilight Zone episode “The Shelter”? The show may have been science fiction (social fiction), but the psychology is true enough. You will become a target if you advertise.

Bottom line, don’t talk about Fight Club.

It may be just my age, but every time I hear “Preppers” I think of “Preppies”.
