The WWII poster above told people of the day to keep their traps shut or spies and sympathizers might reveal ship movements and locations to . . . the enemy!
It also gets at a point for you SHTF style samurais that have crazy ass preps in place, or a totally whacked bunker. Don’t advertise it to the world, because when the time comes to use it . . . . . they will come. All the people you told, and all their closest friends. If times are really tough, I’m talking TEOTWAWKI tough, they will come . . . by force!
Seriously though, anyone with a crazy preparedness level has thought about this. The problem is, SHTF-preppin’ is kind of fun, and you want to share it with everyone you know. But you don’t, you only tell the ones you trust. Perhaps you do it, because it’s conversation, perhaps you do it to inspire them, or perhaps you do it for both. Let me tell you, though – when the chips are down, you’re only safe from the people that are equally prepared. The rest – will come.
Sure they’ll feel bad about coming, but they won’t have a choice. They’ll say, “But you have all that food, all those supplies. That’s more than you need. This will all pass quickly. Help will come. Let us in . . . . let us in – DAMN IT!”
I picked up these SHTF-style Twilight Zone vids over at Survival Acres. The dude is a little more anti-government and doom and gloomish than I generally prefer, but some of his posts are pretty entertaining. This short episode is worth watching, it’s a video clip of what I described above. Pick up the first frame around the third minute if you want to cut straight to the action. Awwww yeah.

BTW: You’ve got bricks of .22 ammo for the post-apocalyptic world – right? Good, cats will make great eating. They’re freaking everywhere.
Hell, there’s even a cat eating festival in Peru. Check it out – cat burgers!
Next post is Friday night.
