To most Americans, when they watch Doomsday Preppers, they will see psychos and paranoia. Is there any true merit to any of the TV show’s many characters? Realistically, many of the scenarios presented by the program will most likely not happen in the next 100 years. Some of my favorites are the robot invasion, alien attack, and zombie outbreak. Now as these scenarios may some day become true, they are mostly science fiction and a paradise for these people.
This sense of taboo is especially prevalent when viewers see the extent that the characters go to to be prepared. For instance, their lives completely revolve around the coming apocalypse. It comes to a point when their entire family is affected and their life goal is to overcome a scenario that may never happen. At this point, the lifestyle has gone to far. Having good food storage and a plan for certain scenarios is one thing, how ever completely changing one’s life is totally different. This is where the sensible prepper is born: one who sees need to prepare, but does so in a low profile manner, and still enjoys life. Besides changing lifestyle, some people in this TV literally hope for this disaster, while some of the more squared away people hope it never happens, but prepare for it.
Prepping is an extremely prolific and proactive activity and is highly encouraged. One must approach almost all scenarios with moderation. A great variety of moderation is portrayed in this TV show which makes it very entertaining. For instance, we see the average family making small, creative, and proactive preparations for scenarios, giving them a sense of merit and truth behind their actions then we see total psychos taking their level to the extreme which is just plain entertaining to most viewers.
Watching this TV show often encouraged people who are not involved in prepping to begin the activity. This is the best part about this TV show. It encourages normally functioning individuals and their families to partake in preparing to live a better life in the event of doomsday or any other scenario. Prepping is a wonderful thing, and will most certainly save countless lives in the future. This TV show is an outstanding resource to begin your preparations as well as consider which approach to take and different considerations for different scenarios.
Modern science and situational awareness tells us there will be doomsday like scenarios in our foreseeable future so there is definitely reason behind these people’s life styles. How ever as said before, some are taken out of hand.
