The Losing Strategy of Defense | SOTG 996

How can the strategy of defense be a losing proposition? We consider the origins of the defensive mindset and examine how we have lost ground continuously over the last eighty plus years. 

We have a Warrior of the Week question. Our warrior has a question about some of the overlooked items in the prepper pantry. What should every person have on hand, all the time in the pantry? How can we keep from missing or forgetting important items? 

Remember our brand new Firearms Fitness Workout Program, available right now on How did humans survive without air conditioning and refrigerators? We will explore all that and more. 

Thanks for being a part of SOTG! We hope you find value in the message we share. If you’ve got any questions, here are some options to contact us:
