As preppers, we hear quite a bit about how knowledge weighs nothing and how your brain is your most important survival tool. In tonight’s show, we are going to talk about mental Fortitude and having a survival mindset. We all prepare because we want to give ourselves the best possible chance to survive any disaster, and preparing mentally is an essential piece of the puzzle.
We’ll also be going over some dystopian fiction movies that have become (or are becoming) fact. As they say “art imitates life” and some of these movies hit really close to home. Towards the end of the show, we will also be talking about what an ESG (Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance) score is, and how it could impact society by magnifying wokisim & cancel culture.

Police Gun Cams
To start the show, we went over a video that illustrates the benefits of a police gun camera. In today’s guilty until proven innocent society having a camera view that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that a shoot was justified could be very beneficial to the police officers involved.
We also talked about some of the tactics this officer used and how training plays a significant role in self-defense. Instead of defunding the police, maybe we work on ways to get them better training. The video below is the police interaction we covered.
Building Mental Fortitude
We don’t think about mental fortitude daily, but it is important in preparedness and life in general. The stronger we are mentally, the easier it will be when life hands us tough times. It will also help us make the correct decisions when we are faced with stressful situations.
In the video, we talked about some ways to forge mental fortitude and become a stronger person. I mentioned a podcast in the show called The Order of Man, which I highly recommend you check out. The video below is also from The Order of Man that goes over some steps to building mental fortitude.
Remember Your Why
What is it that makes us feel the need to prepare? And at what age do we start to realize that life can, and will, throw curveballs at us? In this video, we talk about what has made us preppers, How long of a disaster we should be prepared for, and why most preppers are above the age of 40.
If you are starting with preparedness, this is an excellent conversation to listen to. It shows that while we are all different and have different needs, we also have quite a few similarities.
Fiction Becoming Reality
With all the things that Hollywood gets wrong in movies, they get things right every once in a while. HAL from Space Odessy was a militant Alexa, and Star Trek predicted many technological inventions we use today.
We have done a few reviews of these prepper movies that aren’t really prepper movies on our YouTube channel. Most people don’t think about the movie Demolition Man as a prepper movie, and another is the movie (and book) 1984.
ESG Scores & the Ramifications
Something relatively new in the corporate world is the ESG score. ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance. On the surface, this looks like a good way to hold big companies accountable for their actions, but where does this all lead.
In the show, we talked about how this is just another form of “wokisim” and a social credit score of sorts. A company becomes more “investable” by not saying anything negative about climate change, BLM, & transsexualism. Promoting one side of the story while disregarding the other is a slippery slope. This video clip from the Joe Rogan show explains more.
