Doubts on being a prepper. (IMPORTANT)

The general public has always been behind the curve. While I feel sorry for them, you can't feed or care for everyone.
One scenario that bothers me is the young woman with a child or two who comes to the house looking for food. If you
give her food, she could be a spy looking for gullible people and then the gang comes in and plunders your house. But
let's say she is what she appears and you give her food. She'll be back tomorrow, and the day after taht, and the day
after that. How long before she says something about you to one other person. Suddenly there is 10 or 20 or 30 people
wanting food. What happens when you can't or won't give them any more food. My guess, they'll try to take!
Sooo, I try to keep low key. I pray I don't get into a situation like the above. If some innocent looking person like in the
above scenario won't go away, and I'm forced to open the door, I plan on asking if she has brought food for me and the wife.
Years ago When father in law died. It became my duty to look after Mother in law a duty I truly enjoy. I knew she would stay in her home as long as she could. I purchased a Generator myself and put it there . Few others in the family questioned why she would need it. They forgot that there Dad my father in law took care of all that stuff he had a few ways to make power if needed. When the farm equipment was auctioned off all that stuff left. First big storm the next winter power was out. Other Bother in law on snow mobile went to check on her. She was sitting in a warm house with most of the lights on. Most of us figured she would come live with us in a few years. That was over 20 years ago she still going strong. Her room here is still waiting.
New life as a house husband, major shift in duties.

That sounds harsh I know, but ultimately, your job is to take care of yourself, your immediate family, and your tribe, in that order. People will always see preppers as odd, they always have.
I'm coming to your house. I love me some PB&J, especially if I have nothing else to eat for a few days

I wish prepping was more excepted, more of a lifestyle for Americans. I admire the current head of FEMA for trying, he said he would like to build a culture of preparedness in America. But I don't ever see the basic dynamic changing. People have become to spoiled and to dependent on the system and the government. Long as they have their distractions they're not going to listen to things that make them feel uncomfortable. I've noticed posting almost ANYTHING along the lines of preparedness on non-prepping sites draws an almost visceral reaction. It takes them out of their comfort zone and they often cover up their fear and normalcy bias with jokes and mockery. Some of them can be very nasty about it. It's an automatic defensive reaction for some. Unfortunately many of these people are simply unreachable. Someday something will happen and when it does natural selection will show them no mercy. It's to bad, but I don't think anything's going to change that.
One of the many and perfect examples of why we prep. Its not crazy it is just plain common sense.
