PROTECTION FROM THE ELEMENTS
PROTECTION FROM MAN OR BEAST
Protection from Man or Beast
Most preppers think their biggest threat and challenge is water, food, and fire. And that’s what they build on. They buy all their gear, gadgets and toys to ensure they survive this threat. That’s great in theory, but, in the real world, our biggest threat to our existence during an SHTF event is not the lack of water or food. Water and food will not even be our biggest challenge.
Our biggest threat, sadly, is mankind, and our biggest challenge will be defending ourselves along with our family from the evil,s of man. I’ve seen war and I’ve worked with law enforcement, and I know what evil people are capable of doing. I’ve seen it up close and personal.
Recognizing this fact is one of the differences between a survivalist and a prepper.
For an SHTF survival, protection is second only to knowledge. You can have all the survival outdoor gear, gadgets, or toys you want, but if you can’t protect or defend yourself, what good is it.
An SHTF survivalist knows his priorities. And my first priority is protecting and defending myself and my family. Water, food, and fire are secondary if that.
Again, it’s a mindset.
