Prepping isn't just for SHTF/TEOTWAWKI

Nothing wrong with gold or silver, per se.
Sometimes, your immediate need is simply food & fuel for heat.

So you believe there's a failure coming in society? Interesting, tell me more...

All empires throughout history - none, no exceptions - have collapsed. This one will also. All that is up for debate is what the details will be, what form(s) it will take, what all will be involved, but not that there will be a collapse. We've seen America decline severely in just a decade or so. Not only will it not last forever, it isn't doing well at all, and is well on its way. What intrigues me is that things move more quickly now. Misinformation is still surprisingly strong even though we have had the internet for 20 years. There are still plenty of Pollyannas.

I believe there will be several little ones before the "big" one.
A local power failure (been through enough of those, myself) or other supply disruption is "failure" enough, especially in extreme hot or cold weather.

After Hurricane Katrina, or more recently Hurricane Sandy, or the floods in Colorado, there should be no question about your odds when you rely on yourself vs when you rely on BigDaddyGov or help from random strangers.
