Ready for Anything

Last Update: 20 November, 2022

What is this Issue Concerning?

This is about being ready for disasters.

Why We're Presenting This:

The world is on a course for such disaster that preparing to survive it should be an obvious and needed course of action.

Evidence that this is Real / Really Happening:

Is What's Happening a Topic of Mainstream Discussion?

Not usually. The thinking seems to be that they don't want to warn the Public, even if they know disaster is coming, even to give the Public false assurances of peace, because otherwise they expect it will either cost them money or it will create panic. Examples of failure to inform the Public:

Is there Anything Misunderstood, Suspicious, or Untrue with the Official Narrative and Why?

Lots of things:

  1. It's not 'negative' to prepare to survive. Unfortunately the rise in popularity of the pseudo-religion of positivity has made it taboo to talk about, and therefore to prepare for, disaster. There simply is no positive way to raise the topic of disaster. Many people don't want to hear about 'negative' topics whatsover, as though this is an infallible shield. Blind positivity simply will not allow preparedness. It can kill you. Planning to survive is a positive act, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

  2. Don't expect Government help. Treat it as a bonus if it comes. Usually Government focuses more on helping themselves and large corporations but not individual people. For example, in the 2008 crisis they bailed out banks, no matter how responsible for the crisis, while not bailing out individuals, no matter how innocent of the crisis. In preparing, consider yourself on your own until proven otherwise.

  3. Any system made by humans can fail. For example, thinking it was too big to sink was the attitude at the time of the launch of the Titanic, and presumably the guiding reason behind why there weren't enoguh lifeboats. Why prepare for the impossible? Only when you recognize that the impossible is possible can you take responsibility to prepare.

Evidence of the Truth:

What You Can Do About It:

  1. Prepare Supplies:

  2. The basic idea is that anything you depend on for life you should not entirely rely on outside sourcs or just one system. You should have a backup or reserves. Here are sectors to consider:

    1. Water: You need it for drinking and washing; don't expect to live long without it. One gallon per day per person is the absolute minimum as a rule of thumb. Many ways to store and purify water are available (at least as of this writing when times are not too difficult).

    2. Food: You can't expect to survive more than a few weeks without it, and even that would be great suffering to go through. Better to have some on-hand, the more non-perishable the better.

      Be careful to stockpile not just 'some food' but what you actually would want to eat, and with some variety.

    3. Salt: Often overlooked, it can be just as important as food. Sea salt is preferred.

    4. Medications & Supplements: If you depend on any drugs or supplements, you'd be wise to store reserves of them.

    5. Other Medical Supplies: There are many other medical supplies you might need in an emergenncy, but at minimum you should have ways to disinfect and bandage wounds.

    6. Transportation: You'll need some way to get around. If you expect to use your car, you'd better have reserves of fuel and ensure the fuel is of a form stable for long-term storage.

    7. Fuel: Machines are no use if they don't have energy. Make sure your stored fuel is stable for long-term storage.

    8. Electrical Power: Electronics are no help if they don't have electricity. Fortunately many ways to generate power are available, including solar and gasoline generators.

    9. Cooking

    10. Clothing: If you don't life in a tropical climate, you'd better have clothing for winter.

    11. Shelter: You can't live for long without it, and it's possible your main shelter might be damaged or you might be forced to flee from it. Do you have anyone else you can stay with in an emergency? Do you have a tent?

    12. Cash or Money: Having cash or other readily bartable commodities on-hand is useful in case electronic payment systems, which are normally more convenient, fail to operate, either through some electrical, banking, or account obstacle for example.

    13. Defense

    14. Communications: It's good to have more than one method of communication available in case one becomes unusable. However those you intend to communicate with need to be using a compatible system for it to have value for you.

    15. Cleaning & Sanitation

    16. Documents: Critical identification should be kept ready in case you need to flee.

    17. Community: One of the best preparations is talkign to your neighbours in advance about world events and preparedness. You are much safer when the whole community is prepared. Furthermore often you are better suited to prepare one thing and your neighbour better suited to prepare another.

How to Deal with Any Pushback to Preparedness:

Too many people see emergency preparations was wasted money, on the assumption that depending on external sources for the vital supplies you need to live is infallible, or at least if not, the Government will help you.

The reality is that it's dangerous to depend only on outside sources for your life supports with no reserves or independence, unless at least those sources have a contract with you whereby they can and will guarantee supply for a reasonable price. If not, they can close up at any time.

But as long as everything running fine, emergency supplies can seem like wasted money to the foolish.

Here are things to consider, or say, in defense of preparedness:

  1. It's not a fatal mistake to be prepared but it can easily be one if you're not prepared.

  2. It does take energy to prepare, but far less energy when times are easy than when a crisis has already begun.

  3. If you don't stock up your vital supplies when times are easy, it might be impossible to get them when times are difficult. Once the Public fears a shortage, the incentive will be to hoard, either for survival, a sense of security, or profit.

  4. Nobody's going to thank you if a crisis comes and you have nothing ready. They might be irritated with you for preparing, but they will full blame you for being caught unprepared.

  5. There is a cost to prepareing but usually far less than after a crisis has already started.

  6. Advance preparation makes the stress of any disaster much less. It removes much of the panic.

  7. If you don't prepare it means by default that your disaster plan is to die. If that's your plan, you are not much of a leader or adult.

  8. If you're tired of pushback for preparedness just wait for the next power failure and point out that this is why you have preparations ready. Usually they won't reply, because they concede your point.

  9. Even the Government encourages people to be prepared for disaster to some extent. Not as much as they usually prepare for their own comfor with your money, but still some small direction. Try a site like ready.gove to see.
