In the world as we know it, there are groups preparing for a future more difficult than the lives we lead today. Predictions for the future of society vary from group to group. Some predicting mass societal collapse, others a future where basic needs becoming more difficult to obtain. The philosophies are reflected in their names: at the more dire end are the “Doomsday Preppers” while those interested in teaching basic survival skills call themselves “Survivalists.”

These groups and associated philosophies have a lot going for them. The way the world operates is changing. Global oil supplies are running out. (Have we reached Peak Oil yet?) Regardless of your personal position in the political debates, prices of basic goods have risen and will continue to rise as global pressures intensify. Preppers and Survivalists teach skills useful in a world of rising prices and potential market crashes.
