One to two months ago her videos were on topics like:
- A new gadget for her recurve bow.
- She got a new dog.
- How to sharpen an old bow saw.
- 5 types of survival shelters.
- Her #2 knife design becoming available. (Two videos just on that topic.)
- Her current bow setup.
- How to make a fire the "primitive" way.
- Firesteel vs magnesium bar vs lighter.
And then suddenly her videos shifted to an all new theme: Coronavirus Panic Time.
A video of her panic buying toilet paper and other items.
A video about why teenagers and the Austrian media should not be mocking people dressed up to protect themselves from the Coronavirus.
Plus videos on:
Immune System Boosters.
News reporting on people stealing disinfectants.
Survival gear for her dog.
Another video of her panic buying things at the store.
Spending a night overnight at her buy out camp. X2.
Austrian Curfew imposed.
Storing water for emergencies.
Panic buying more stuff.
And getting her survival bug out camp ready.
Is Lilly Overreacting?
No, I don't think she is.
I think she is taking this topic seriously.
Did she really need that much toilet paper? Probably not. But whatever. Lots of people have been stocking up on toilet paper. My wife and I purchased toilet paper on SALE back in January before the current crisis hit North America, so we're set for a good amount of time anyway.
I also think there is plenty of young people out there who are not taking this seriously.
Possibly because those same young people don't understand what the worst case scenario of this virus is:
- The virus could mutate and become deadlier, killing young people too.
- The global economy could completely collapse. Resetting us back 200 years. Monetary wealth could become completely worthless.
- Complete anarchy as society breaks down.
Governments globally are trying to prevent this from happening. Stopping the virus before it can potentially mutate and become deadlier is important. If we just let the virus run rampant it will eventually mutate into something deadlier.
It is in their own best interest (and ours) that the global economy doesn't collapse and society falls into anarchy.
Because as much as the sound of hunting, fishing and growing my own vegetables sounds like a grand adventure the vast majority of us would much prefer to keep our KFC, pubs, beer, and freezers full of frozen food that is ready to eat. To say nothing of toilet paper, air conditioning, and access to a healthcare system.
That grand adventure doesn't sound so good if it means mankind brings itself close to the brink of extinction.
So everyone should be doing their job to prepare and to stay safe.
And that includes idiot teenagers and centennials in their 20s. (Millennials are in their 30s. We need to stop using the term millennials to describe young people.)
Take the coronavirus seriously. Stay Safe!
