It was a near-given that this program would paint preppers as wackadoodles; and in this regard, it doesn’t disappoint. To be fair, some creative and unique ideas are demonstrated, but then they gum up the works with the ridiculous.
Doomsday Preppers could have been a really good wake-up teaching tool. However their “expert” analysts who rate the preppers’ efforts at the end of each segment are exceptionally narrow-visioned.
They often overlook important considerations like medicines, fuel, heating, extra clothing, alt. energy, and pet items, to name a few, in favor of reading from ludicrous scripts. Their experts neglect the whole picture, and in nearly every segment they conclude that the preppers’ concerns were mostly invalid and score them accordingly. So what is the point of the show?
Most astonishing in one episode the analysts negate the chances of an EMP-induced power grid failure, when NOAA, a notoriously conservative venue, says this is a near certainty. Mainstream has reported on this potentially catastrophic problem for the past 2 or 3 years. Writers of Doomsday Preppers should have done their homework to avoid looking so ignorant.
These lengths are meant to look ridiculous and be self-defeating. Was this the program’s main purpose? Who is financially capable of spending a half million bucks on dehydrated food? Not many, and the Lord doesn’t expect us to, but He does expect us to do what we can and rely on Him for the rest.
Don’t buy into National Geographic’s self-defeating nonsense. Instead, go to our 100% FREE prep website and make use of the info. It costs you nothing and you can prepare a little bit at a time. But get busy – time’s a-wastin’ and it may save your life.
