    In 1982 there were survivalist rather than preppers of today. There’s a huge difference in that survivalist trained more and were skill heavy compared to preppers of today who buy more. They also banded together more rather than using social media. That allowed most social issues to be worked out ahead of a crisis.
    Then survivalist became a bad word portrayed by the media and .gov who used it synonymously with terrorist. Kind of like how they use other words like every pistol is a Glock and 30 is a magic bad number.
