There is a big difference between an earthquake, hurricane and Y2K!greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Many posters on this Forum mention frustration with those who refuse to prepare. Everybody helps everybody when there is a hurricane or earthquake.
However, Y2K is different. All have been warned. Only 10% listen and have prepared. If someone begs for food in 2000, tell them that they have been warned.
Noah tried to warn the people and when they tried to get on board, Noah said "You've been warned and you failed to prepare" and he turned them away!
You have bought only enough food for your family. If you share with others who ignored the warnings, your children will eventually go hungry if Y2K is a 10.
Ed Yourdon has predicted a 10 year depression. You're a fool if you share with others who ignored the warnings. Millions will starve. You cannot stop the suffering! You cannot possibly save anyone, because if you do, you put your own family in danger!
It is very noble to help others, but your own family comes first. If you have a family of 5 people and have prepared for one year of food, feeding 5 more people reduces your food reserves to 6 months!
What are you going to do in 6 months? The 5 people you helped will just go and drain other people's food supplies, over and over again!
The 5 Virgins did not share any of their oil, did they?

The Bible gives excellent examples of how people react to different situations. This reation is almost universal. There are many other Biblical examples of this. The reaction is always the same. A small percentage prepare, the rest don't.
y2k is certainly no exception.

Since I now believe Y2K has been deliberately engineered to enslave us all for the NWO, I suggest you consider a LIFESTYLE CHANGE if you plan to survive. The food you store is just to tide you (and your family) over while you get your fruit and vegetable gardens growing. May the Lord help us all.
