Broad category for all things related to preppers, preparedness, survivalism, survivalists, survivalist retreats and the reasons and concerns that make them prepare. The so-called "Survivalism" or "Prepper" movement is a conservative-libertarian political movement.

The basic concept of Survivalism is that all human beings are inherently survivalists by nature in that they will take actions to preserve and protect their own lives. Such as moving out of the way of a truck that would hit them otherwise. It simply acknowledges that such people, organizations, governments, and things can and often will fail.

"...if times get tough, or even if then don't"

  • Everything you do to "prepare" for emergencies, disasters or economic turmoil should be blended into your life in a way that improves your life even if nothing disastrous ever occurs. Your preps should improve your life "if times get tough, or even if then don't".

Debt is financial cancer

Growing your own food

  • Growing your own food is for everyone not just people that want "organic" fruit and vegetables. To produce your own food, even as little as 10% of what you use reduces your dependence on "the system". If nothing else gardening is good for your emotional and physical health and increases the value of any property (plus, any compost used from thrown out food is diverted from landfills). See Permaculture for more specifics from a prepper point of view.

Food and water storage

  • Food stored-Food preservation (e.g. canning, etc.) is an exceptional tangible investment. Food is increasing in cost faster than just about any investment right now and certainly faster than the rate of inflation. You simply can't lose by storing additional food that you eat on a regular basis.

Tax is theft

Owning land is true wealth

  • Owning land is true wealth. Individuals should strive to own land in the rural country where taxes are low and big government restrictions are limited. Even if you live in the city finding, buying and improving land within 3–5 hours of your primary residence makes a lot of sense. If you can use it to get out of the city at some point so much the better.

Financial security

  • In addition to food, water and other common survival stores ("preps") use common sense methods of hedging against "disaster" or inflation and the effects of the national debt and quantitative easing. Pragmatic things like, cash emergency funds, precious metals such as silver and gold in the form of coins, good insurance and secondary income-profit streams are not just for people in "the system". These types of protection can make your life a lot less miserable when something goes wrong. Survivalist-preppers make them part of their financial planning.

You are in control of your life

  • Your personal philosophy is more important to you than that of any other person. Along with Divine Providence, you are the master of your own life and if you don't agree with another individuals views, great, define, understand and implement your own. The biggest thing you can do is understand that you are in control of your life and that what you do matters. Those two factors have the greatest impact on individual survival across every demographic you can imagine.
