Podcast: Play in new window | Download (14.1MB)
Today we take a new look at this primary concept of modern survival philosophy. We examine how the concepts fo probability, impact and commonality of disaster interlock and how to use them in our planning process. More importantly at the end we examine how they impact the human condition and what we can learn about ourselves if we are willing to face our collective fear and examine disaster with these three factors.
Join me today as we discuss…
- What exactly is disaster probability and why should you care
- Why is impact second in the equasion
- What does commonality teach us and how do the following seven preps effect two very different disasters
- Storing Food
- Reduce/Eliminate Debt
- Develop Energy Independence
- Grow Food
- Save Money
- Keep Cash On Hand
- Have Evacuation Plans
- What do we learn about life when we actually face and plan for disaster
- Why retirement commercials are a lie and you can’t wait for your “golden years” to start living
Two Exerts from Today’s Show
“We prepare for individual level disasters first, because they are more probable, not because they are more dangerous.”
“If event” X” occurs what actions can I take both before and after its’ occurrence to improve my odds of survival and/or my ability to remain comfortable?”
“The harsh reality is that survival is not about being able to buy specific items or to do specific things so much as it is about your individual ability to adapt, overcome and succeed based on the resources you have or more to the point is spite of resources you have to do without.”

I just put together my “Pantry 72” yesterday Jack….inside a pantry. That thing is awesome….I am ordering the #10 big one this week. I will say that the TSP members discount code DOES NOT work. The 5% code works from your main site but the 7% code no longer works. Thanks again for the youtube review of this thing.
The code does work, at least it does now. My primary contact at ShelfReliance.com was on maternity leave and due to that we ended up with an expired code. The first I heard of this issue was yesterday at about 4PM, by 8AM this morning the code was again active and usable.
I will bet you if you call shelfreliance.com and ask they will make it right and credit you the additional 2%.
Here is a great link about a local disaster event http://www.infowars.com/empty-store-shelves-coming-to-america/.
The last time before 911 that we had bloodshed within American borders that involved war was the War of 1812? Ummmm, there was this event in Hawaii called Pearl Harbor…
Riots – We had one in Toledo, Ohio and made national news about 2 or 3 yrs. ago when the Nazi party did their 1st Amendment rally and the blacks rioted.
Great show Jack! I’ve heard you touch on this topic before so it was good to hear a whole show on it. I really appreciated the comment about getting out of debt before joining MSB. That eased my mind as I feel strongly I should be giving back for all the great advise and knowledge you provide on a daily basis. We are, unfortunately, deeply in debt but digging our way out. Thanks for all you do.
Sick of getting low amounts of useless traffic for your website? Well i wish to tell you about a brand new underground tactic that makes myself $900 daily on 100% AUTOPILOT. I really could be here all day and going into detail but why dont you merely check their website out? There is a great video that explains everything. So if your seriously interested in making simple money this is the website for you. Auto Traffic Avalanche
