I think that location and who you surround yourself with have a large part with being ‘woken up’, there are obviously a million other factors, values, upbringing, etc. I was stationed overseas for a long time so for me there was no such thing as prepping and the places I was stationed were all very liberal. Once I made back stateside where I could hunt and fish again, along with other things I was actually able to start prepping. The wife and I are now on our way to financial freedom by paying off our house and everything else early but I still prep in the name of saving money and providing security for her. I was also able to see the whole political landscape because of my travels both official and non-official. I’ve seen the middle east tear itself apart and knowing Europe the way I did and the way I see it now it is complete chaos. My wife who is very liberal isn’t blind to it either, she is constantly asking me if things she sees on TV are real, as in she can’t believe all the violence out there right now. We also live in St Louis (which we love) but she reads about assaults and shootings all the time and just wants to leave. That is precisely why we are paying off the house early and trying to figure out where we want to go after this.
I think there will be a lot of sporadic violence in the next few years with Trump in office but if he wins re-election I expect way worse. I think right now liberals believe that he will be out in 4 so they aren’t going to be completely awful but once they realize 8 years with him I expect to see full-blown riots. Just keep your head on a swivel and keep prepping and you’ll be alright.
