Define SHTF

According to the Urban Dictionary

“When the Shit Hits The Fan.

To survivalists and preparedness people, this is the big disaster. Normally connotes the total breakdown of civilization and social order.”

There are other names. eotwawki = end of the world as we know it. teotwawki = the end of the world as we know it.

It is the belief that when something happens that causes society to stumble or break down totally. The Shit has Hit the Fan.

Define Prepper.

A Prepper is. Someone who focuses on preparedness.

Some prepper things are long term food storage. Long term water storage, and ways to generate electricity or how to store it. More generally everyone is a prepper. Everyone is preparing for something. An example, saving to buy a new car, or home you’re prepping to be in a better financial position to make the large purchase.  The term prepper has taken on a dubious meaning in the last several years, with TV shows about prepping, that are emphasizing the more extreme parts of the prepping world, to the extent of telling the people in the show this isn’t extreme enough.

Define survivalist.

A person who makes preparations to survive a widespread catastrophe. Such as an atomic war or anarchy. Normally by storing food and weapons in a safe place.

Survivalist and survivalism have gotten a bad rap in the last several years. People look on them as wackos and extremists that hope or desire the end of the world to come so they can rule their own little kingdom. Fact is that every one is a survivalist. Lets break down the word and see what it means.

noun: survival
the state or fact of continuing to live or exist, typically in spite of an accident, ordeal, or difficult circumstances.
suffix: -ist
denoting a person who uses a thing.
So survival is a noun or and action word. ist a suffix, something added at the end of a word that conditions its usage or meaning.
So a survivalist is a person who is actively trying to survive. Sounds like every person or animal I have ever meet.

Every one of the personalities I have mentioned has gotten a bad rap from the media in the last several years. The truth is if you go to anyone who fancies themselves as a prepper, or a survivalist. Most are easy going people who will go out of their way to help you even in a SHTF situation, as long as it won’t put their family at risk.
