There was a time not too long ago when I laughed at preppers. I was so wrong and I'm glad I was brought to my senses.
One thing I personally have done was, instead of storing medicine long term, to heal my body naturally to eliminate the use of virtually all pharmaceutical products, including OTC. 8 years ago, I had cardiovascular disease, severe ulcerative colitis, and cancer. I had been on prescription drugs for 26 years for colitis, my doctor wanted me on chemotherapy after surgery to remove the tumor, and cardioascular disease symptoms were numerous. 8 years ago I transitioned away from typical American diet to fully plant based. I weaned myself off the meds and have been completely free of them for 2 years with no symptoms. All 3 diseases have reversed. The doc who wanted chemo withdrew his recommendation and acknowledges my skin damage is now reversing. I don't think he ever saw that before based on his reaction. And my cardiovascular damage has also reversed and my system now supports aggressive physical demands. I am 70 years old. I continue to try to strengthen my body to be completely independent of the sickcare system and their drugs. My next project will be growing my own food. Since I now live on plant food, I can produce a good portion of what I need though my choices will be dramatically reduced from the typical produce market. But this is for survival.
That kills 2 birds with one stone. So I don't even consider the complicated question of raising livestock and storing meat, and can live off what grows in the backyard. And I now try to avoid the sickcare system entirely. I don't even go for annual physicals any more. And I've stopped all the cancer screenings they want, such as a colonoscopy since healing my body.
The plant based nutrition coaches that I trust are few. But you can research them and decide yourself. Dr Michael Greger at NutritionFacts.org was the primary for the granular approach of building the program. But a much quicker way to construct a program is presented by Dr Dean Ornish in his recent book "Undo it", which is a fast read to jumpstart a program.
The prepper food pricing is sooooo expensive. And not the most nutritious.
I buy canned: tuna ( low mercury brand), lots of sardines, salmon, chicken 🐔
Buy on Amazon 12 or 24 cans at a time. Shelf life is several years and I do rotate.
Canned vacuum packed nuts are a longer term option too.
Frozen organic veggies.. tho if we lose power bye bye frozen, refrigerated food .
Let's face it . At some point the stash ( even heavy duty preppers)will run out unless they do some farming. There's just so much average folks can do . .
I will not live in fear....
Besides, if things get that bad what kinda life will we have? No electricity? No running water?
No thank you
That would be the end of humanity ..
I'd rather accept my fate ..

I have food stored and enough spelt to grind for flour. With sourdough starter and salt, there's lots of bread there. More could be done with money and a different property, but my attitude has changed. While I agree with you about the feeling of an invincible global control underway, I don't think it will happen. I can't tell you why. Too many of us won't submit and that includes people in power. This will be a mighty force. Even so, prepping is good to do.
I live under a dense canopy of trees, it's called Sam Houston National Forest aka piney woods. No chance of getting crops to grow under these drought conditions. Im loosing faith here. Do you have any cowboy jerky peanut butter tuna fish recipes?
