Have you ever wondered how the super-rich prepare for the SHTF? The multimillionaires and billionaires from all walks of life, the powerful politicians and diplomats, the aristocrats and members of royalties – in short, the one-percenters? We had a glimpse of how different sectors of society reacted to the lockdowns and crazy policies that followed the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. I'm not laying any judgment here, just stating the facts.
They're still humans, so it's safe to assume they too fear it hitting the fan just as much as anyone else. In fact, as I'll argue, they dread the masses too, perhaps on the same level as the other way around. Anyway, the elites live a very different lifestyle to 99% of the population. It makes sense their preparations might differ substantially from the average Joe and Jane's, too.
But how does that work, and why does it matter? More importantly, do we have something to learn from their actions, strategies, or preparations?
Prepping is for EVERYONE
As structured disciplines, prepping and survivalism have strong ties to practical activities, stemming from the military, frontier land/rural and self-reliant lifestyles, and straight-up survival (including financial survival). Many of the techniques taken from outdoor activities, like buschcrafting, hunting, backpacking, and wild camping, can be found in the Preppersphere.
