Hoarder or Prepper?
Host: Jacqueline Druga “Apocalypse Nana”
Have a fun-filled and informative listen to on another installment of Apocalypse Nana this week. Our hostess with the mostest, Apocalypse Nana herself, Jacqueline Druga, will be discussing current events and prepping for the apocalypse versus hoarding with her co-hosts R. W. Clinger and Dominic Bianco Such questions of interest include: What is the difference between the prepper and hoarder? Are preppers actively breaking the law because of their prepping tasks?
What is the psychosis of the prepper when it comes to preparing for Doomsday versus the hoarder and their psychological Doomsday? And who makes a better hoarder and prepper in our personal bunkers, and why?
Prepping for the end of the world is the act or acts of survivalism, which is a development and interchange of individuals or groups who are actively making ready for earth-shaking events such ice storms, zombie infiltration, plague scenarios, starvation, and interferences in political or social orders. Preppers often acquire emergency self-defense and remedial training, and stockpile food and water, obtaining the status of being self-sufficient. Food is gathered, structures are built, and weaponry are all key factors in being a prepper. Underground shelters, bunkers (bomb shelters), and survival retreats are just a few habitats that the conditioned prepper will reside in during a catastrophe. Preppers establish rational means of survival by collecting protection; hoarders, on the other hand, are quite different.
A hoarder is often called the pathological and compulsive gatherer. Unlike the prepper, a hoarder suffers from anxiety disorder. Also, a hoarder is not preparing for a world catastrophe and/or crisis. Perhaps mentally he or she is, but not environmentally. A hoarder does not use the theory of survivalism or the biological and mechanical understandings of the survival of the fittest. Other concerns of a hoarder include that they are sometimes clinically diagnosed as suffering from a compulsive-obsessive disorder, and will endanger their own lives by blocking their exits, collapsing shelters, and health-related concerns.
The above concerns will spark the most interesting questions and facts from the Apocalypse Nana Team, which includes:
