SHTF Poll: What are You Worried About

Is there anybody who knows about your surviving the collapse preparation, and whether or not they are being derisive or just plain curious, asks questions similar to ”Don’t you think you’re being just a little paranoid?”, “What do you fear?”, “What do you think is going to happen?”, etc.

Well I generally say something to the effect that while there is no shortage of things to be worried about, I am not generally focused on any one type of collapse or SHTF scenario, just getting better prepared to live and survive in a environment with degraded security and utilities infrastructure, where the ability to obtain food is greatly reduced. Well, that about covers what would happen in any type of collapse.

I recently saw a poll where common Americans, not necessarily forward thinking citizens who are planning ahead, were asked: ”What life changing, catastrophic events (list all that are applicable) do they fear the most?”

63% of the respondents said Economic Collapse was the most likely catalyst for TEOTWAWKI.

46% said that a Natural Disaster, on terms greater than Katrina, was what scared them the most.

44% of the poll takers stated that a Terrorist Attack was what the feared.

33% of the respondents believed that a Global or National Disease Outbreak was a likely catalyst for collapse.

  1. People are scared that's true enough but I think people are in a tunnel vision any one of those scenarios is likely to happen I think people need to take a hard look at what they have and make a party book for anything. I like the cdc guide for zombies as ridiculous as that sounds it outlines all your basic ideas for any collapse and is a great starting guide for preparation for any catastrophe. The only way to truly fail is to never try.
