Young adults, people born between 1980 and 1997 (or, Millennials) are very different than those of us reared back in the better part of the Twentieth Century.
On the surface, some of these young people may not seem to possess skills useful to survival, but on the other hand, many of these kids are very smart and may just prove incredibly adaptable under adverse conditions.
They are an untested hypothesis—an unknown quantity.
It may serve you well to welcome them into your group if they possess the right personality, rather than the right skillset.
On the other hand, if they seem worthless and completely lost without a cell phone in their hand—they just might be.
Another judgement call.
There are those weak souls out there, often Liberal types, who just don’t seem to have a self-preservation instinct. They oppose firearms, national defense, corporations, national borders and mandatory sentencing for violent criminals.
They are very trusting souls when it comes to people they really should not trust.
These types are more concerned about their environmental impact than they are about staying alive—but maybe that’s because staying alive has never been in doubt until disaster strikes.
These people could be a terrible hindrance to your efforts. Don’t give these people critical jobs or place too much trust in them. They don’t see the world as it really is.
Given time, the Nature they want to protect will chew them up and spit them out. In the meantime, you may have to deal with them.
Building your survival coalition, like friendships, takes a little work, but it’s necessary to the long-term security of you and your family.
Better to find out now which neighbors can help and which can hurt your chances of survival.
Come together and survive.
Always Safe, Always Prepared
