Preppers And Privacy

Is your privacy important to you? How much more important is your privacy as a prepper or survivalist? Because of the fact that you have taken the time to stockpile food, water, shelter, guns, ammo and other survival gear, is this something you want broadcasted to the world? How about your very own government?

Edwards Snowden and the NSA Leaks

The leaks that Edward Snowden revealed about the NSA says a lot about our government and the lengths they are willing to go to know what it is we as Americans do in our spare time.

Would it interest you to know that the recent amendment to the "National Defense Resources Preparedness" act gives FEMA and other "official" groups the power and authority to seize YOUR survival stockpiles. So if you have food, water, guns, ammo, filters, shelter and other items stockpiled, this allows these agencies the power to seize them in a time of "national security".

The real question is: Do you want the government to know how much you have stockpiled? Even if you're very paranoid about how to purchase, stock and use your stockpiles, it becomes very evident that the NSA is likely making lists of certain particular people and labeling them very accordingly.

During these leaks, Eric Holder specifically overlooked NSA snooping on phone calls, e-mails and more in order to determine who was a foreign "terrorist" and who was a homegrown or domestic "terrorist". Yes, this is actually happening in our country.

Preppers and Privacy

What this means for preppers and survivalists is the fact that we can be far easily taken advantage of through acts such as "National Defense Resources Preparedness" in order to know that you have stockpiled "resources" during a "national emergency".

The fact is this: Our 2nd amendment rights are being trampled on and destroyed at every turn. Any time we look at the news, we hear about politicians writing new laws in order to ban specifics about guns, ammunition and more; all a byproduct of wanting to ban guns altogether. In many states, there are such strict laws about firearms, guns can practically not even be purchased (think DC or Illinois).

Summary

It has become clear that our privacy has been attacked. The 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and many other amendments have been trampled upon and are actively being destroyed. Our rights of free speech, to bare arms, to not be warrant to unauthorized search and seizure and to remain silent have been violently attacked; and quite successfully, as well. As preppers and survivalists, we must be aware of these threats and be willing to act accordingly. Hide your goods and keep them secure at all costs.

Be safe. Prepare, thrive and survive, at any cost.
