Have you ever thought about what you will do if the SHTF and friends and/or family start knocking at your door, asking for help? During a local, temporary disaster such as an earthquake or hurricane, it would make sense to help them. I know I would.
But what if it’s a long-term disaster with no signs of abating? What if you only have enough food to last your family a few months? If you start letting in friends and relatives, then next thing you know, your food will be gone in a week. Then the people you helped will be right back where they started, only they’ll have dragged you down with them.

That’s why a lot of preppers keep their stockpile a secret, as well they should. However, if you have a chatty friend or family member who spills the beans about your preparedness plans, then a lot of people might end up finding out anyway. If that happens, then you could end up in a situation where you have to turn people away–people you care about.
This is easier said than done. If people are banging on your doors and windows, begging for help. You or one of your family members are likely to cave and let them in. And even if you still don’t let them in, these people will get so desperate that they might try breaking into your home. Could you really shoot a friend or relative?
In this video, Ethical Preparedness discusses this problem and talks about what you should do. This is one of the most interesting and practical discussions of this topic I’ve ever seen. Watch it below.
