Not Ready For The Bunker Yet
A lot of people are doing this, convinced that there's either an environmental crisis coming, a government take-over, or anarchy, or dogs and cats living together in peace and harmony . . . alien invasion? Rise of the machines? I don't know . . . use your imagination. When the end comes, I'm going to be one of those people totally unprepared to survive in that Terminator/Mad Max world that's looming just over the horizon--according to them.
So be it. I'm fine with that. To be honest, I don't believe it's going to happen in my lifetime. Since the beginning of time, there have been those that believe the end is near. I just don't buy it. I view the world in a very different way from doomsday preppers. They've given up on the idea we can still make the world a better place to live in. I still see it that way. If you go back in history, this is hardly the worst of times we've seen in recorded history. Things have been a lot worse than they are right now and the human race has come back from it. There's still a lot of good in the world if you take the time to look for it. I'd rather be a person that's working to make the world a better place than somebody that is preparing for the end of times.
Because to be perfectly honest--the post-apocalyptic world is not a world I want to live in. My Wi-Fi went out for four hours over the weekend, and I felt like I was back in the Dark Ages. I'd never make it.
