People are turning to doomsday preppers–the often-teased, ultra-prepared survivalists –for shopping lists, supply sources and advice, in hopes of making their homes pandemic-ready.
a prepper worldview
Preppers prepare for end-of-world scenarios in which supplies dry up, governments fall short, and people turn on each other.
To prepare for this, they stock up on supplies, arm themselves and hunker down to ride out the SHTF (s*** hit the fan) event, in something called “bugging in.”
what preppers got wrong
People all across the country are “bugging in.”
But, most are not staying home and isolating because they believe in the essential badness of the people around them. They’re not even staying home because the government wants them to do so.
People are choosing to stay home because they know that that’s the best way to protect our society as a whole.
