Taking a Strategic Approach to Prepping

When you think about prepping, have you thought about the different types of SHTF there are?  Have you thought about the different threats you might face?

Strategy can be defined as high-level planning to achieve one or more goals under conditions of uncertainty. And since prepping by its definition is designed to ensure or improve the chances of survival in uncertain conditions, strategic thinking is extremely important. In previous articles I talked about the necessity of intelligence gathering and analysis. That’s an important part of strategic thinking.

The “migration” of “refugees” from the Middle East to the countries of Europe is just one example. Another example would be the recent budget-busting spending bill passed by the U.S. Congress.
