- Don't claim to be a 3per, and backpedal when you get told just what being a 3per entails.
- If you were going to drop the "3%" monkier/description, don't you think you should have done that before you advertised yourself at the convention?
- Stockpiling food in non-sustainable (most urban) environments is an invitation to fail.
- There is a big difference between riding out a winter storm and long-term preparedness/self-reliance, despite the opinion of some novice.
In the meantime, before you start adopting the name "3%", you might want to read some of the late founder's words on the subject:
For the record, I'm not a 3%er as one's role as a public figure, writer/educator, and occasional pundit greatly reduces one's effectiveness in an operational context. However, I concur intellectually with the late Mr. Vanderbough's opinions on the matter.
