Concerning the article “Survivalists prepare; Believing the world’s economies will crash, some people learn to live off their land” (5/25, A-2): I, too, believe in storing supplies, water and medicines for any type of emergency, local or national. But we all know that unless you are fairly wealthy, we are limited in this matter.
Weapons to defend your supplies are a bad idea. There will always be a bigger gun than yours, and maybe many more people involved. I personally don’t want to take up arms against my neighbor. Will we be able to ignore children crying for food at our door?
I think a better solution is to join together in a community setting and work together for the good of all. Let’s demonstrate to the world, as written, “love thy neighbor as thyself.” This country was formed with values from the Bible and the Constitution that were created for this country’s good.
A house divided against itself will fall, so let’s work together.
