A preparedness lifestyle is a progressive journey that moves a person to depend
less on the national institution of supply and creates a more controlled and simple
way of life. I have identified four areas of attention: Food, Fuel, First-aid, and
Firearms. There are other groupings and certainly some areas that fall outside of
these four but the “Four -F's” are a good start.
America holds a fragile grip on its system of infrastructure. Like a 'house of
cards,' if one element falls, the rest will tumble. Think about how much of our
world is dependent on electricity, yet the system of generation and distribution of
that power (called a grid) has become overloaded and in many areas has fallen
into disrepair. The grid is showing its age as we experience seasonal 'roving
blackouts,' peak usage surcharges, and more frequent equipment failure outages.
Electricity runs our bank, grocery store, gas pump, and Internet. Every system of
supply and social order is dependent on electricity to hold it all together. What if
Urban homes keep an average four day food supply on hand. That grows to about
ten days for suburban homes and two weeks to a month for more remote rural
locations. It's clear that were our national food distribution halted, social order
would start to crumble within a week.
There is a reason why preparedness has moved from a fringe following to one of
the top ten subjects for books, television series, and business.
