A very small minority of people are equipped to deal with an emergency in a competent fashion.
A slightly larger number of people attempt to be prepared but fall short if the emergency persists.
The vast majority of people are wholly unprepared for even a slight disturbance in their usual routine or living conditions.
While this statement may come as basic common sense to the majority
of my usual readers, such observations do bear repeating. Indeed, it is
important to remind ourselves of just how unprepared we may be, even
though we may be more prepared than most of the rest of the population.
Many of those who are aware of the
possibility of an economic collapse, general war, electrical grid
failure, or simple natural disasters are aware through available
literature of how human behavior will adjust to the new circumstances if
a crisis takes place. Although much of what “preppers” are confronted
with in terms of information often borders on the state of panic and
fear, it is true that what is at first a tranquil community of friends
and neighbors can very quickly turn into a violent mob and dangerous
enemies fighting over finite resources.
