If Preppers focused on community versus individualism the power of politics would be in the hands of the people in a time of crisis. We as a People need to be prepared in case of political meltdown and social collapse. It takes organized patriotic constitutionalist joined at the hip to save the nation in time of despair. Like I said before power in numbers. The mission statement of a group like I suggest should be to reestablish what makes us a republic and not deviate to socialism. The Constitution is and will always be the backbone of what we should strive to preserve and defend. The trend of Preppers and individualism has streamlined a trend of what most might consider an anti-government movement. Government is not bad, it's very necessary and should be included at the lowest levels of community Prepper groups to quickly reestablish life saving resources and structure. My ideals stem from watching factions of Preppers. Whom have become extreme in their individualism, which will in my opinion lead into pockets of possible criminal groups. Exploiting the masses due to the fact that only 1.67% of Americans are classified as Preppers. Having taken up not only preparedness for sustainment but Arms for defense against their neighbor. Community should be the focus and recovery of community is the only true American way and idealism.
