by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:
When horrible events happen, people want to know why. Why was a random group of people targeted to have their innocent day destroyed by violence and terror? Why did the culprit choose that group of victims, that day on the calendar, that specific location? And who? Who was the mastermind behind the event? Who were the members of the group that perpetrated the horror?
This is always followed by the speculation that things are not as they have been presented to us. Most people in the preparedness world have a very valid mistrust of the corporate-sponsored mainstream media. We look to other sources for our news, and rightly so.
TRUTH LIVES on at https://sgtreport.tv/
Every time that speculation includes accusations that our own government is behind it, pulling the strings. Other frequent theories are that the events never actually happened at all and that the victims are 100% made up of crisis actors.
The pursuit of the truth is an important quest. Some journalists have dedicated their entire lives to uncovering the Machiavellian plots of those who pull the strings, and it’s a noble and meaningful calling.
And that is why what I’m about to say is controversial and probably won’t be well-received.
Strictly from a survival point of view, it doesn’t matter at all who committed the acts of terror that occurred on 9/11, on the streets of Boston, in London, or in Paris. It doesn’t matter whether a middle-aged guy with a gambling problem or shadowy operatives of some government perpetrated the shooting in Las Vegas.
If your focus is preparedness and survival, the most important thing you can be doing right now is learning from these events. Hey, I love a good conspiracy theory as much as anyone, but in the heat of the moment, that isn’t what’s important.
Whether you believe these acts are at the hands of Islamic extremists waging jihad or a state-sponsored act of terror to clamp down and take away more freedom, the single most important thing you can take away from this is a lesson in survival.
This article is not a debate about the different conspiracy theories. If you are present during a terror attack, my opinion on the culprit doesn’t matter, and neither does yours. In the heat of the moment, your focus should be on escaping or fighting back, not unfurling some ugly scheme. All that matters in those minutes or hours is surviving.
Survival is the focus
Massive disasters happen when people are going about their daily business. People go to concerts, fly to visit relatives, take vacations, run marathons, walk to work, take public transit, and shop at the mall. No matter who you are and where you live, if you aren’t an agoraphobic hermit, there are going to be times when you are part of a target-rich environment.
And if you find yourself in the midst of an attack, the motivation of the people attacking doesn’t matter at all. You are in just as much danger whether the perpetrator is a member of ISIS or a member of a secret government agency. A bomb is a bomb, an AK-47 is an AK-47, and a machete will lop off your head, regardless of the motivation of the person wielding it.
So stop with the accusations and focus on what is really important – your survival.
Think about what you would do in an event like the ones that have taken so many lives and harmed so many people. Thinking through events before they occur is what allows us to act quickly when they do happen. Believing in the possibility of bad things helps you to accept it and move to save yourself and your family, while others stand there in shock, making targets of themselves. It’s time to consider what you would do to survive a terrorist attack.
