Sharpen Your Hatchet While The World Screams

Shhhhh

I know that there have been many posts on the subject, but I was recently reminded just how easily some loose lips can cause problems.

When too many people know details about sensitive information it becomes far more likely that someone will slip up.

What happened to me to trigger this post is trivial in the scheme of things but what if it weren't? There is an old saying that 3 can keep a secret if 2 of them are dead. While I know I have several folks in my circle who I would trust with anything, with bigger circles come far increased risk.




One area I see a big problem is with people posting details and pictures of their prepping activities on social media. Having your "friends" knowing all about your rice and bean collection will end badly in a real deal SHTF.

It should go without saying that posting anything of a more sensitive nature should never be posted on any media at all. Don't text about it, snapchat it, email it or talk on the phone about it. Period.

Keep a low profile. Don't brag. Keep your mouth shut.

  5. In theory, prepping makes you smarter ( except the idiots on Doomsday Preppers, which are beyond retarded. Not because of opsec but because they throw money at stupid solutions ). In theory, smarter guys get laid more ( or, a better mate selection ). Opsec is low down on the list when getting laid is at the top. Just saying.

  6. And then there's this guy who wants to prep by himself for 21 other uninterested people.

  7. no possible for 1 to lift up 21. one mule can only carry so much. I have seen this first hand, when that mule left the farm, nothing got done. it will never get any better, it will get worse and they will sell you out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7BuQFUhsRM my advice, move to an area that growing, foraging, harvesting,raising animals is a way of life.

    1. People are still to comfortable to do a thing like that... That would take motivation, courage, and fortitude which is lacking these days...

  8. Saw alot of loose lips stuff being posted over @ WRSA, including photos of the poster holding rifle. Telling the world what you're going to do when SHTF and how you're going to do it with the stuff you're going to do it with, and what you've prepped at this location, also in photo, is, well, stupid. The reality is, those who want your stuff or your life, have been given the first step towards that goal...that is, that you have have it to begin with, and where you are. Now they can have a mission, and you are the target. Like you say, reality wins...always.
