The prepping movement makes some sense to me.  There are a large number of scenarios that could disrupt our society on a large scale such as volcanic explosions, earthquakes, war, contagious diseases, riots, solar storms or Donald becoming president.  No amount of human preparation can mitigate every possible disaster but I think some preparation is reasonable.  My faith is ultimately in God however even Joseph in the Old Testament was into prepping for disaster.  Joseph prepared the entire land of Egypt for a seven year famine under the authority of Pharaoh.  It worked out for him and I believe we should learn from his example.

There are a large number of electronic books on Amazon relating to prepping for disaster and off-grid living that I have been reading. Many are even free as a promotion for some periods of time and I try to purchase them during those times. It amazes me that so many things can be obtained at no cost.  I strongly suspect that electronic and paper currency will eventually have little value if our society continues its economic policies.  This doesn't matter that much to me because my electronic currency value is rather limited. Perhaps my economic value in society will actually improve in some disaster scenarios. Knowledge may be worth some barter value in a post disaster society.
