Planetary and societal history have proven beyond doubt that any instant can bring a sudden end to our normal, comfortable way of life. Severe disruptions of water and food supplies and civil society are almost routine all over the earth. Those who think they are immune are choosing a comfortable naivete that could prove their undoing.
We in this group choose to acknowledge and confront the almost unimaginable consequences posed by natural disasters and social upheavals. Whether any particular disruption impacts us for days, weeks, months or years; we know we may be the only ones available to get us through any circumstance or reality.
Prudent People Plan, Prepare, and Persevere. These are our 5Ps. Let's help each other start living them. We are about information and implementation. More specifically, helping each other discover the best strategies that will help us weather both the inconvenient and the tragic and learning how to implement those strategies.
We are not about any sort of politicized discussion or conspiracy theories. You may of course hold any sort of political views of your choice, but this is not a venue for promoting them.
