“Why is the default thought that I should give my hard earned prepps away?”
So what’s the problem (other than room, I guess) with stocking up when with packages that can be handed out in a crisis for what you paid? So long as you weren’t profiteering. for three to five dollars, you could have a pretty useful short term survival handout for one person? So why should I feel obligated to hand that package over to somebody who ain’t destitute for free?
Then, when SHTF is over, you take the money you got for the packets out of the little can you put it in and go replace the stuff.
it’s hard to imagine anybody showing up at MY door who’s worse off than I am already. For them to ask me to not only provide, but to provide on my dime is not particularly noble of them. They never took me on the Vacations with them, or spent money on my and my entertainment. Now they want me to make up for their shortcomings out of my pocket. If that makes me a bad guy that’s ok because my wife and I will have full bellies.
