Why Over-Preparedness Can Kill In A Crisis
I didn’t believe it myself, until I saw this case study on what happened in Egypt
in the early days of the Arab Spring.
As violent mobs of looters ransacked neighborhood after neighborhood, a fellow American, Steve,
who was visiting his sister therefound refuge inside a house that looked incredibly secure.
There was a 10 ft wall surrounding it, a safe room with enough water and food
to last a year… and enough weapons to throw back an entire military squadron.
But despite all this, that house, along with the man who hosted our American brother, fell to the raging looters.
