Preppers Versus Tradition
My knee-jerk reaction to so-called survivalism and preparedness is in part grounded in the issue of language and semantics.That’s because language not only accurately conveys culture and cultural ideals, but language and the words we employ, shape our world view, cognition and behaviors.
Language is constantly evolving. Once the meaning of a word is altered to embrace a new or changing concept, there’s no returning to the prior interpretation. Society is permanently and irrevocably transformed.
