Is prepping going mainstream? Now the affluent are getting ready for TEOTWAWKI.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/23/styl ... lypse.html

President Trump threatens to “totally destroy North Korea.” Another hurricane lashes out. A second monster earthquake jolts Mexico. Terrorists strike in London. And that’s just this past week or so.

Yes, the world is clearly coming to an end. But is there anything you can do to prepare?

That is not a philosophical question, or a theological one. And if it is a question that seems to beg any explication, you may stop reading now.

But if you are among the swelling class of weekend paranoiacs of affluent means who are starting to mull fantasies of urban escape following the endless headlines about disasters, both natural and manufactured, you may be starting to see a different image in your mind when think “survivalist.” You may no longer see the wild-eyed cave dweller in camouflage fatigues, hoarding canned goods. You may even see one in the mirror.

In a world where the bombproof bunker has replaced the Tesla as the hot status symbol for young Silicon Valley plutocrats, everyone, it seems, is a “prepper,” even if the “prep” in question just means he is stashing a well-stocked “bug-out bag” alongside his Louis Vuitton luggage in a Range Rover pointed toward Litchfield County, Conn. Here is a checklist for the neo-survivalist preparing for the apocalypse.

Cause someone has to rebuild society?
Cause then you can has all the cake you want and no one will tell you to stop?
Cause you get the chance to eat the last twinkies in the universe?
Cause .... (answer left as a homework assignment)
:)

Not sure why this question is ever asked on prepper forums (it invariably is, somehow), but I think this is the classic "if you have to ask you wouldn't understand."

Same reason you choose to survive day to day despite all those things that stress you out and all that, even though it seems like it'd be easier to lie down and quit. You actively choose to tell that darker voice to shut up, you're not done pissing off the world yet.
