Shamed into Disaster. Listening to others who say prepping is kinda crazy.
Alrighty then, we’re back for another exciting adventure here on the Chaotic Navigator podcast. I am Mark Weisman, the Alaska Outlaw and today I’d like to talk about those out there who listen to the crowds who say “all the preppers are weirdos”, or “Don’t worry, someone will take care of you”. These types of shaming techniques wind up costing many people happy lives, either by serious injuries, or death.
Before we get after it today, I’d like to make sure that, for those of you who need peace and harmony, or help in making sense of life, be sure to check out the Alaskan Ulfhednar podcast at https://akulfhednar.com. After 30 years of spiritual searching and discovery, he has arrived home. Check out his theories of finding peace and harmony, with a true understanding of co-existence and universal love. Some great stuff for you there.
Each week we look at a different facet of what being prepared looks like in the real world of everyday. It is absolutely awesome to be back with you guys here for another adventure of discovery and obtaining the super power of common sense. Today I want to put a new lens on the old eyeballs and look at the topics with a different perspective.
Today I’d like to talk about the stereotypes we hear about all the time about “those guys” who wear cammies, don’t talk much and are as backwater as they come. This can be no further from the truth, as a matter-of-fact, many high tech gadgetry is associated with survival as disaster preparedness. Those out there who decide to listen to the naysayers of the world, wind up in a really bad place, when they really don’t. I’d like to clear up some misconceptions about being prepared.
Segment 1.- In the first segment we’re going to discuss the negative connotations, and stereotypes that some people use on others to shame them out of being prepared. Misinformation can be a killer to many who are just starting out thinking about being prepared. Next to death, surviving a natural disaster is the next big thing that people don’t like to talk about, thinking that by talking about it, they’ll jinx themselves into it happening.
Segment 2. - in the second segment we’ll get in and discuss the misconceptions about being prepared, and how to conflict with those naysayers in our lives who try to talk us out of it. Great story about how some among us totally skipped the panicking caused by the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.
Segment 3 - Finally, id like to talk about the things that we can be prepared for ahead of time by thinking about those actions and resources you’ll need for that next big emergency now. Don’t wait. Don’t let those lazy people among us steer you down a path that is damaging for your family.
