I do not live in fear, as an acquaintance used to say “They can kill me, but they cannot eat me, and if they do, I hope they poop themselves to death.” I prep for hard times because I know historically it can happen, and statistically will happen again.
I am not scared because I am prepared. I do not live in fear because fear of something not happening is not productive. I do not fear the future I prepare for it.
These precepts are my creed, and having prepper precepts guides me when I face tough choices. A wise man once told me that when facing a moral problem, the right choice is usually the action you don’t want to take.
I am not a pollyanna person that is wishy washy or blindly follows rules, heck I have a little rebellious streak and love to know the WHY of rules, but I do respect and understand the need for law and know how vital it is for a society to have a moral code.
By knowing what I believe in you can know how I will act. This is very important in times of stress. If you don’t want to read these precepts one by one, the completed list can be found here: Completed 27 Prepper Precepts.
