I knew Bear Grills, the hippy and the marine and the others but always though they were just showing off skills to survive in a particular scenario. After visiting these sites instead a new picture arose: Survivalism as a symptom of a deeper research for isolation from the society.
Can we consider Preppers as Futurists?
Sadly no, they’re conceiving only 1 future and they chose the most apocalyptic.
Future studies help creating multiple scenarios and most of the time I tend to remove the best and worst scenarios (it is easy to think about them and it is better to invest time and resources towards other deeper and darker scenarios)
Still even these scenarios can have some outputs so, thanks to the Preppers, I’ll think about having a little survival kit in my house and I’ll be happy to rediscover some basic rules on living without external support.
