Here’s the premise of this article: bugging in is not an option. You have to leave your home or apartment. There are armed, occupying forces (national and/or foreign) moving into your town and neighborhood.
If you don’t leave, you risk harsh imprisonment and/or death.
Is this “Red Dawn” scenario likely? Maybe not. Is it possible? Most certainly.
Much of our prepping strategies are focused on gear … and how to use it. But survival skill sets are just as important. And among the most important of those is knowing first aid.
Planning for disaster scenarios certainly must include helping the injured and ill in your family and your group.
Today, the Canadian Prepper gives a shout out to nine channels that focus on what society will look like post collapse: standards of living, technological regressions, and and adapting to a more primitive lifestyle.
Of course, these “apocatalk” (apocalypse talk) videos offer more than just doomsday, grid down dialogue. Some are very thoughtful and level-headed in their presentations.
That being said, this is not a blanket endorsement of these channels. Many of their ideas I (and Canadian Prepper) disagree with. But as CP says,
“It’s the mark of an educated mind to entertain a thought without accepting it.”
Doomstead Diner (Roger Ebert): an established channel with a variety of guests and his critical analysis of current events, “Serving Food For Thought”.
Disaster Survival Network: post collapse insights and points of view.
Ontario Preppers Network: public speaker Che Bodri’s channel with lots of good info, discussions and skill set examples.
Ethical Preparedness: probably the fewest number of videos dedicated to just apocalypse talk.
Hibernian Son: one of the pioneers of the “apocatalk” genre, he may challenge your political & religious beliefs.
The Immortal: a cerebral, philosophical “ideas guy” who includes pragmatic prepping and survival topics.
The Kgoat Channel: the king of apocatalk, ethical and level-headed.
Dan Daman: a lot of gun videos with a balanced perspective.
Suburban Sentinel: critical analysis with life real life experiences.
You can search YouTube for these channels. Or simply watch the video below with the embedded “subscribe links” that pop up as Canadian Prepper gives additional information about each channel.
