  • Collapse of society: When there is chaos, the society will surely collapse. There will be no law and order, it will be harder to access food, fuel, water and other necessities. Preppers are getting ready for shortage or unavailability of resources.
  • Economic collapse: Preppers are also anticipating that one of these days, economic collapse like¬† deflation, depression and hyperinflation will happen. These things are uncontrollable but preppers are ready for it.
