I have a confession to make. I love watching those "Doomsday Prepper" shows on television. There, I said it… Even if I don’t necessarily agree with their ideology, I always learn something new. Sure, lots of people make fun of the preppers. Their friends, neighbors, and sometimes even their family may think they’re going to extremes. It all seems a little like overkill until you watch the evening news.
In light of the recent uproar in Syria, and allegations of chemical warfare, I imagine that there is a certain degree of comfort in being a hardcore prepper. Part of me wonders how long it will be until chemical warfare escalates. Biological warfare could be next. Of course, you know that means one of two things: super flu a la The Stand or zombies. I really wish some of the Doomsday Preppers would, at least, mention preparing for a zombie uprising. I think they should dedicate the entire month of October to prepping for the Zombie Apocalypse. I know plenty of people, myself included, who could give them some tips. I can dare to dream, can’t I? Sleep well.
