Survivalism is a movement that has gained popularity in recent years, particularly in the United States. It is a philosophy that emphasizes self-reliance, preparedness, and the ability to survive in the face of disaster or societal collapse. Survivalists believe that the world is becoming increasingly unstable and that it is important to be prepared for any eventuality. In this essay, I will explore the history of survivalism, its key principles, and its relevance in today's world.
The history of survivalism can be traced back to the 1930s and 1940s, when a number of individuals and groups began to prepare for the possibility of war or other disasters. These early survivalists were often motivated by a fear of communism or nuclear war, and they stockpiled food, water, and other supplies in case of emergency. In the 1960s and 1970s, the survivalist movement gained momentum as a result of the Vietnam War, the oil crisis, and other events that led many people to question the stability of society.
During this time, a number of books and magazines were published that promoted survivalism as a way of life. One of the most influential of these was The Whole Earth Catalog, which was first published in 1968
