Episode-470- What Is Modern Survivalism

I call myself a modern survivalist, well what does that mean.  What is the difference between a modern survivalist vs. a traditional survivalist or a primitive survivalist.  What are the fundamentals of modern survivalism?  What does it mean to survive anyway?  Why are we coded as humans to survive and what are we surviving for?

  1. If you want to see “normalcy bias” in action take a look at this photo from wikipedia – 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami. I’m willing to bet no one in this photo lived.
