  • I need another few years to get settled.  Whereas most people know nothing about the crash, but have the means to prepare for it, I have the knowledge but not the means, being a student.  If anything really serious happened before 2009, I'd be in trouble.   The worst feeling is knowing what's on the horizon, but not being able to prepare for it.

  • Pretty simple to decide if something is an emergency.

    If they decide to draft us, we're in trouble.

    We'd be sent off to fight for an antiChristian agenda, and if we're not killed in battle, we'll be poisoned by depleted uranium that they're making the ammunition out of, or some other poisonous weapons that do alot of collateral damage even years  after its been used.

    If some epidemic occurs, we're in trouble.

    We'd have to avoid people and it'd be hard to get ahold of supplies.

    If the economy collapses, we're in trouble.

    Gangs of theives (and eventually rapists) will loot and kill to get the scarce resources that some have prepared for such an emergency.

    If they decide to "chip" us, we're in trouble.

    Our every movement would get tracked and we'd have no privacy whatsoever.

  • Really it's hard to be objectively well-prepared --

    We can all be spiritually prepared, of course (that's most important) and we can also be psychologically prepared, without TOO much trouble.

    But I know how hard it is to be really independent of the world around you -- we're almost not meant for it. We would have no leisure (or comforts) if we had to make everything ourselves.

    I suppose whatever you can do, do that. It all adds up, and everything helps.
