If you know anything about surviving when Momma Gummint isn’t there to wipe your nose, don’t bother reading the link. It’ll probably make you barf. I can’t really decide between mild approval for at attempt, however mild, at raising awareness of the concept of prepping, and just kicking him in the crotch for going about it in such a pussy way.
I can’t really fault the tone of the article, given that it’s meant to persuade average Joe and Jane (British)
citizen subject to think about preparing for disaster.
But. But there’s not a word on self-defense, other than “keep quiet and don’t let anyone know you’ve got stuff”. Now, I realize that the article appears in The Wanker, but I think the real problem is that the article is aimed at Brits. And Brits aren’t allowed to own guns. Brits aren’t allowed to defend themselves. If they’re attacked, I think they’re expected to just fall over and die.
Then there’s the
global freezing anthropogenic global warming global warming climate change bell being rung again, which annoys the crap right out of me. Yep, he just lost whatever minor points he might have earned.
