Prepping As A Form Of Personal Activism

There are some days when I feel as though I am out there in the world alone, fighting a battle that can not be seen or heard.  The battle is one of preparedness and is one I endure day in and day out in spite of my best effort to step away and live a normal, middle class, mainstream life. I have given a lot of thought to this and even though I tell strangers that I am a “crazy old prepper lady”, in my heart of hearts I know that I am doing both myself and every other prepper-type a disservice by minimalizing the importance of embracing preparedness and self-reliance.   If I paid attention to the memos issued by the alphabet soup agencies, I suppose I would be considered a domestic terrorist.  As far back as 2011, people that stored  lots of food were identified as “potential terrorists” by law enforcement authorities.  I would like to think that things have changed since then but to be honest, most people I know look at me glassy eyed when I talk about prepping.  That includes my family

In early July Public Prosecutor Marco Antonio Delfino de Almeida announced that he was making the formal request on behalf of the Guarani community to force the state to install signs and speed warnings on the road. (The Brazilian legislature had passed a law in 2007 mandating demarcation of lands.) Earlier this year, another court had turned down his request and the government had declared the road to be safe.
