To be Prepared is Half the Victorythreeworldwars.com | Mar 20th 2003
The question I am most often asked is "If what you're saying is true, it's obvious that I need to do something to protect myself and my family, but I don't know where to start. Can you help?"
Sadly most people are woefully unprepared for the inevitable terrorist attacks, natural disasters, and other disruptions that are planned for our daily lives. Our government tells us VIRTUALLY NOTHING about what we can do to protect ourselves. And make no mistake about it, there's plenty we can do -- We don't have to be sitting ducks!
As JFK once said, "The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining." So, as the storm clouds start brewing all around us, let's make sure the roof is in order, before it's too late.Your number one resource when the planned cataclysmic events start taking place is your knowledge - and that's knowledge gained over months or years of learning to think how to live primarily independent of the system. Whatever you do, don't rely on your government to save you. At the bottom of this page there's a graphic reminder of who's responsible for this mess in the first place!
So What Is A Rational Individual To Do?
Develop alternative income streams, instead of relying on a 9-5 job always being there;
Ensure your personal financial affairs are in order;
Ensure you are in peak physical fitness to survive any calamity;
Reduce your TV time to no more than 1 hour per day and instead read voraciously;
Avoid sensationalist, traditional mainstream news services, who are intent on keeping you dumbed down, and choose mainly Independent News Services;
Cover your Online tracks carefully. Otherwise, third-parties can find out EVERYTHING you do online;
Learn how to relax, in the midst of worsening news and circumstances;
Ensure your relationships can stand the test of the coming crises.
What to do About Things Right Now
Here's a superb article which may provide pointers on what you should be doing to prepare.

Well, there are a number of things you can do right now to ensure that you personally prepare for the coming hard times. Some will think you nuts. But, there are things you can do quietly and covertly, even in that context.
Most importantly, you must plan now and be ready to implement that plan the moment the wheels come off.
If you live in a city, you need to plan how to get out in the event of a catastrophe. Immediately. Not the next day. Not that night. Immediately. Remember what South Central LA looked like just hours after the Rodney King verdict was handed down? That’s how quickly it will degenerate.
No freeways. They will be death traps. You need an escape route that takes you through neighborhoods you know will be safe for a time. Being among the first to leave will help to ensure that roads are not blocked.
You must have a plan in place for assembling your family for the trip, regardless of the time of day that it becomes necessary.
Assemble a "bug-out" kit and keep it in your trunk.
Store enough gasoline in cans in your garage to get you to wherever you already have planned will be your retreat. Recycle the contents every six months, because gasoline degenerates fairly rapidly. Keep your escape vehicle gassed up and well-serviced at all times.
Make a list of the things you can grab while the family is being assembled. Keep the list in the bug-out kit. Make a copy and keep it in your sock drawer, in case the car is busy picking up kids. Think apocalyptically today.
You won't be capable of rational thought when the need arises, but you will be able to follow your list. Include any gold and silver you might be keeping stashed away (if you don't have any, then shame on you). Include weapons – you will need them, rest assured.
Get permission in advance, even if you treat it as a big joke, to arrive on the doorstep of friends or family in the country, if that is what you must do. Otherwise, they will not be happy to see you. Arrive with enough of something or other that makes you a valuable and welcome addition to their enclave. Food. Gasoline. Bullets. Gold. That sort of thing.
If nothing ever happens, which I consider exceedingly unlikely (that is, it is inevitable, in my humble opinion), then you will have wasted nearly nothing. In fact, you will make money on the appreciation in gold and silver that has been going on and will continue for several years. If something happens, a few hours' preparation today may spell the difference between life and death. Yours. And your family's.
If you've a mind to, now would be an excellent time to move your family to an area likely to be among the safer in the country, regardless of what may happen. That will not include any city of any serious size. Nor should it include areas within 100 miles of any coast (can you say, "nuke-induced Tsunami?"). The more paranoid will want to stay at least 400 miles away from Yellowstone Park.
In short, start developing a mindset of independent living and survival, details of which can be found in our Survival section.
