In the current issue of Men’s Fitness Magazine, Ashton Kutcher talks about being prepared for emergencies and what kind of havoc a major disaster would have on our North American way of life.
He told the magazine “It won’t take very much, I’m telling you. It will not take much for people to hit the panic button. The amount of convenience that people rely on based on electricity alone. You start taking out electricity and satellites, and people are going to lose their noodle. People don’t have maps anymore. People use their iPhones or GPS systems, so if there’s no electricity, nobody has maps.”
He talks about the potential for chaos if / when…
“And people are going to go, ‘That land’s not yours, prove that it’s yours,’ and the only thing you have to prove it’s yours is on an electric file. Then it’s like, ‘What’s the value of currency, and whose food is whose?’ People’s alarm systems at their homes will no longer work. Neither will our heating, our garbage disposals, hot-water heaters that run on gas but depend on electricity – what happens when all our modern conveniences fail? I’m going to be ready to take myself and my family to a safe place where they don’t have to worry.”
Interesting thoughts coming from a celebrity in Hollywood, which seems to half-dictate what our modern culture values are. I wonder how many other celebrities are secretly prepping, and to what degree?
