OK – I will state this right up front:
I believe that the VAST majority of preppers out there do not want some major disaster or event to occur.
Whew….now with the rest of the post.
I have seen that many non-preppers make comments such as “You must be hoping that TSHTF so you can justify spending all this money on all this stuff you have.” Another comment I have seen is “You must be pretty paranoid.”
Those are some of the nicer ones that can be published here.
The other day I was talking with a friend who has some concerns and is leaning towards preparedness and he asked me a similar question about what I hope happens. I told him without any waving that I pray that decades from now it turns out that absolutely nothing happens. I went on to say that I certainly would not look at my involvement in preparedness as a waste or time. The food I buy will not go to waste. The bullets I buy will get shot or will get passed on. The medical supplies will be there in case of some accident. For whatever reason – preparedness comes natural to me and just flat out makes sense.
Now – what I said next kinda caught my friend off guard. I told him that there was one situation, one possible circumstance that I hope TSHTF and it does so not too far off. He looked at me surprised. I told him that if TSHTF -that if some major disaster or event is to take place – I would want it to happen while I am still alive so that I can help my family and friends through it.
Does that mean I hope it happens. No it doesn’t and I believe how I feel is similar to most of those out there who prepare for whatever may happen.
How about you? Do you hope for and want doomsday to happen?
