The disruption of services (utilities, transportation, commerce, etc.) we depend on can create societal conditions in which we may need to depend on ourselves and our personal resources.  Our wellbeing and the wellbeing of our loved ones may depend on our preparedness in the times to come.  Precious metals alone won’t be enough to keep us safe from harm.
