“PRIVATE-SECTOR PREPAREDNESS IS NOT A LUXURY;
IT IS A COST OF DOING BUSINESS IN THE POST-9/11 WORLD.
IT IS IGNORED AT A TREMENDOUS POTENTIAL COST IN LIVES, MONEY AND NATIONAL SECURITY.”
― THE 9 11 COMMISSION REPORT
“Over the years, Americans in particular have been all too willing to squander their hard-earned independence and freedom for the illusion of feeling safe under someone else’s authority. The concept of self-sufficiency has been undermined in value over a scant few generations. The vast majority of the population seems to look down their noses upon self-reliance as some quaint dusty relic, entertained only by the hyperparanoid or those hopelessly incapable of fitting into mainstream society.”
― Cody Lundin,
|One Second After – This was the first book I read in the “preparedness” genre. It is a good read for anyone who enjoys books about dystopian societies, what-if scenarios, etc. This book led me to want to read more in this genre.|
