“You’re not a Prepper. You’re a Dark Prepper.”
This was thrown at me some time ago and I dismissed it off the cuff… And for some time I’ve been thinking about it. A Prepper is a guy that gets all the stuff he’s going to need to survive and stockpiles it and hordes it. So I guess the Dark Prepper, or Anti-Prepper is different in that has preps are so that he can go get what he needs through the use of force. So the accusation has some clearly dark meaning behind it. Here’ the thing though.
But not in the way they or you think, but yes, basically it could be said that I am in fact a Dark Prepper. I’ve laid out all my prepping plans in Uprising USA.
Here’s the plan.
1. Secure your HQ.
2. Secure your local area.
3. Secure your People. Your Friends, Family, Loved ones… Those that may need help. Elderly, Young, Infirm. Make sure everyone is okay and has what they need to survive.
Now here’s where it gets gnarly…
4. Secure additional assets and supplies to insure longevity. Food, Medicines, other supplies and equipment.
Now where I differ from the truly Dark, is that I would not use force on those that have the assets we’d be looking for. Force would be only to defend. This is all pretty clearly laid out in Uprising USA. Moving further, in Uprising UK, there is a scene where assets were taken unknowingly from another survivor who hid when they came to get it. When it was discovered that someone had a claim of ownership to the property, the person was fairly and justly compensated for what had been taken and an amiable conclusion was reached.
So really, maybe, I am not a Dark Prepper. Just a humble procurer of that which sustains life… an amicable prepper. A beneficent prepper. A Magnanimous prepper…
My new Plan since I’m on the East Coast? Not giving away any details, but it involves a large comfortable boat, all my pals and fam, and a long cruise to someplace nice.
