Isn’t it funny that the government tries to convince us preppers are nut cases, but then they go to the trouble of setting up a comprehensive website (ready.gov) that tells people how to prepare for different disasters? And isn’t it funny that the government paints survivalists as dangerous whackos, but then orders thousands of survival kits for government employees?
Deep down, the government knows preparing for an uncertain future is an intelligent thing to do, but they want people to do it on their terms. Why? It’s like everything else. They want to control it. There’s something else they know. They know civil unrest is coming. They might not know exactly what will cause it – it could be an EMP or natural disaster or a food shortage or a financial meltdown – or exactly when it will happen, but they know it’s on the horizon and they want to be as prepared for it as possible.
That has to be one of the reasons the U.S. Treasury Department recently went to a lot of effort and expense to make sure its 3,814 employees all have survival kits. The kits will be delivered to major banks throughout the country.
These kits include a 33-piece personal first-aid kit, a reusable solar blanket, a 2,400- calorie food bar, 50 water purification tablets, a dust mask, a poncho, a rechargeable lantern with a built-in radio, and an Air-Aid emergency mask for protection against airborne viruses.
Does the Treasury Department believe there will be a run on banks at some point in the near future and that their employees will need to shut the doors and lock themselves away for a while until federal troops arrive? Why do you think this is happening? I’d love to hear your opinion about it.
