Today, we find ourselves at a very precarious time in human history. The excessive demands placed upon our natural resources have caused us to live in a fragile state of existence that will undoubtedly begin to crumble soon. Our ballooning national deficit combined with an increasingly large and invasive national government has caused many to wake up and realize just what the future holds. I’m proud of the National Geographic channel’s decision to step up and create a forum for the discussion of this issue through their popular television series Doomsday Preppers.
In a nutshell, this show demonstrates what many brave individuals across America are doing to prepare themselves and their families for the inevitable collapse of society. From learning how to purify water and grow food, to learning how to fire a wide range of weapons and protect their homes, these people are ready for nearly anything.
