They are also included because I'd rather see my neighbors as part of a community & not a threat. So I guess I'm for tribalism. Such a lifestyle has worked all throughout history so why not during a crisis?
    I'm thinking along similar lines. I'm also thinking of a couple of folks at church who are alone....if the time comes, to invite them to come with us.

    I haven't discussed it yet with my husband, but lately that's the reason why I'm really stocking up on oats. It's quite affordable when you think of prepping for others, too - a few bucks goes a long way - and it's good for long-term anyway.

    I think a discussion on how to go about this scenario - forming the neighborhood tribe - will make for an interesting topic.

    Inclusive, love everybody, we are all right, having personal liberties over rights, we are all one .... these all are novel ideas and the core of the progressive movement/agenda.

    However, You must be realistic though ...... it isn't gonna happen. There will not be lasting peace in the middle east either.

    Folks, my worldview is very wide and not just single focused .... it starts in the book of Genesis with a thorough understanding of the chapter 6 events; then through the Old Testament, New Testament, then culminating with the book and events of Revelations. Our God is one of love and inclusiveness as his grace covers us all, unless we reject it and side with the Enemy/Evil One and his darkness. You cannot pick the biblical truths that you like or fit your needs. The entre book is the truth ..... and what will take place. Be very careful what you choose to progress to.

    You ever notice those who proclaim to be progressive are acting more and more like a wild band of Gorillas? Evolutionists are right....just got it backards....

    I've prayed for your salvation my friend.
    From your post below, I believe, it may be working...
    Wow..when godless liberals start quoting Scripture (in context..compared to other Scripture on the same topic etc.) that is a sign the Holy Ghost has set a hook in their jaw and is reeling them up to Heaven. Worked like that way on me too. Welcome Brother Salty. The Angels in Heaven rejoice over one repenant sinner ya know? Now if we can figger out who it was that helped the most to get him saved..that person will get a multitude of their own sins forgiven. It might require an investigation on that. I know several who tried to be helpful. So far Slippy seems to be winning.

    Or, it could be that there's a lot of wisdom in the bible and only a fool ignores wisdom out of ideology. I'm not that kind of fool.

    I think that topic would be very interesting. Some people have done something like that with their close friends. I would be interested to hear about those who have done it with others in close proximity whom they may not have necessarily been acquainted before.

    I purchased a paracord bracelet that I see some youtube preppers wear. I thought it might be interesting to wear one to our HOA block party to see if anyone brings up the topic. I don't have fear of being targeted because I intend to be gone before anyone knows what happened. I don't yet have a shelter-in-place plan, so I don't have anything that will particularly benefit others.

    Start the topic @charito . I'm interested to see if anything has proved beneficial.

    @Salt-N-Pepper have the idea that is best suited for continued survival. Calling discussion of inclusiveness some form of communism is akin to HRC calling 1/3 of Americans a "basket of deplorables" just because they had some different opinions.

    When my daughter was born, I realized that a tribe was the only way our species could survive. In a world with numerous predators, how could a small family survive otherwise? My daughter cried a lot, and very loudly. I suspect a bear or mountain lion would consider that a sign of dinner. My wife and I might be able to fend off a predator or two. What about a pack of wolves? I've seen some videos of how wolves attack their prey. If it were just two adults with spears, I don't think our species would have survived. Yet we did survive. How? Well, we created small tribes, protected ALL of our children, and kept the predators at bay.

    Then we discovered the benefits of people uniting in a common cause. Instead of being nomads, some became hunter-gatherers. Prosperity followed. We were able to build defenses that benefited everyone. Learning became exponential. We developed specialization which benefited all. You know how the rest goes.

    This idea isn't new, it isn't socialism, nor is it Utopia. It is being practical and constructively selfish. If a long-term bug-out situation occurs, I would like to have my closest friends with me. My daughter will have other kids her age to play with. I could leave the ladies with some guns to protect the homestead, and the men could go off an hunt. Someone could pick crops and cook while another could work the soil or gather firewood. If one has the means, that plan make more sense than anything I have heard advocated thus far.

    That is an ultimate goal, but it isn't a reality yet. It may never happen, but making preparations toward that goal will also help moi. The worst that will happen is that I have a surplus of preps.

    I have done or tried to do what you are referring to since the mid - 70's. I think it is what everyone should be doing. You can do a lot by discussing Ready.gov It is a start and encourages every family to be ready to be without power and water for 3 days . Not crazy as it is sponsored by our own government for at least 15 years now.

    Is it enough- No . It is a start ,just about every region of America has had at least part of its population effected by an event that has left part of the people without power, flooded or both within the last 5 years.

    I have a sister who lives near Baton Rouge she got thru Katrina in very good shape and put up about 30 of her in-laws without to much trouble for 4 weeks. They were surprised she had so much food and either things that could just be eaten or alternative ways to cook/ heat it . No big preps for her though, she just buys 5 to 7 hundred dollars worth of canned soups, canned food , rice and dried pasta. She does not normally use these items and every couple years she donates it to her local food pantry. A donation she is likely to make anyway.

    She is a gourmet cook all fresh never canned for her. So pasta fresh made not store bought on her table during a normal meal. Organically grown not much of it by her rather bought.

    She told me later that she was glad she had listened to me , again she would normally buy or make a cash donation to a food pantry all she does is to buy pretty much what she was buying anyway , leave it in the bags just place them on shelves in the garage for a year or two instead of donating right away. Hurricane she uses it no hurricane she loads it up to donate it then goes and restocks .

    After Katrina she did get solar lights, a camper ( more room for guest or a get the hell out of here option besides recreation) First aid supplies and more tools.

    No long term preps but they are good for a couple weeks which up till now is all they have needed It is all most of us have needed so far.

    All of my family has camping gear to include water filters, small stoves, dutch ovens , propane cookers, tents, trailers, backpacks, compass, first aid kits and training , fire extinguishers. My in laws do not do well on keeping food on hand but my brothers, sisters , nieces and nephews do. Are they preppers ? They would tell you no they just have stuff to go camping with, some items to make them comfortable and keep the house warm if the power goes out and food to get them thru an short term emergency .

    Still better than most Americans.
