    I don't think people are under any illusion that you can eek out an existence on nearly nothing, millions of people even today are living quite literally in the stone age. Most of whom live hand to mouth, and have no concept of what we consider a "basic" lifestyle. These same people probably wouldn't believe you if you told them the moon wasn't just something in the sky, but an actual place that people had been to.

    Preparedness in the modern context carries two meanings... first, to literally survive (as pointed out in your article) and the second is the knowledge, understanding and skills it would take to at least rebuild a small part of our modern world should through some calamity everything fail.

    Surviving is one thing but isnt the end goal to live?
    i always thought the point was to provide a better life for my family etc after the "event" not just give them enough to survive.

    Survive or thrive. There is a difference.

    As long as the government can tax your personal property you never really own it. I have trying to educate the sleeping masses for years but I anmhaving a hard time.
