Why Is the German Government Telling People to Stockpile Food, Water, and Cash?

The government of Germany is advising citizens to get prepped. Increased terror attacks from refugees have put the country on high alert, and a new “Concept for Civil Defense” will be presented on Wednesday.

Generally speaking, the more dependent a citizenry is, the easier they are to control. In my book, The Pantry Primer, I wrote about the history of using food as a weapon of manipulation by governments throughout history. Whenever the government gives up the Nanny stance and tells people that they need to put on their big kid pants and take care of themselves, there’s reason for concern.

Do you want to prep but you’re not sure how to get started?

We can help. Go on over to Preppers University and check out our Prepping Intensive course. And if you’ve been at this for a while and want to take your preparedness to the next level, check out our 6-Week Advanced Prepping Intensive.

This translated report explains that German citizens will be required to take responsibility for themselves with a 10 day supply.

“The population is stopped, hold up a personal supply of food of ten days,” the newspaper quoted from the draft of the concept, which was already known in essential parts in early August. According to the report, the population should be able to protect themselves in an emergency before calling government action to ensure an adequate supply of food, water, energy and cash. Therefore, the population should also be encouraged to reproach for a period of five days for each two liters of drinking water per person per day…

The recommendation for stockpiling to citizens is only one of many elements of the 69-page concept. It reads aloud FAS with reference to the threat assessment of the federal government in the new white paper , “that an attack on the territory of Germany, which requires a conventional defense, play” was. Nevertheless, it was necessary, “nevertheless to such sufficiently prepared not fundamentally excluded for the future development of life-threatening”.

These include a reliable alarm system and sufficient capacity in the health system.

Who can help but point a finger at the immigration crisis?

When German Chancellor Angela Merkel threw open the doors to hordes of Syrian refugees (and by hordes, I mean  over 1.1 million refugees arrived in Germany in 2015), an epidemic of rape and violence against the German people began. Gun ownership in the country has skyrocketed in the wake of the rapes in Cologne on New Years Eve (but don’t worry – it was all just a “game” to the refugees) and Islamic terror attacks that are growing in frequency.

Of course, the LA Times says the concern about Islamic terror attacks in Germany is greatly exaggerated. And in a recent interview,  Merkel refused to take the heat, despite the fact that her own advisors blame the unchecked flood of migrants.

Mrs Merkel seems determined to ignore public opinion about her ‘open door’ policy towards asylum seekers.

At a political meeting on Wednesday in her home state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern ahead of a regional poll next month she was asked if ‘terrorism had come to Germany with the refugees’.

The chancellor, whose approval ratings are dwindling on the back of public fears about increased terror risk, said: ‘The phenomenon of Islamic terrorism of IS not a phenomenon that has come to us through the refugees but one we already had.’

George Soros has blamed Merkel’s immigration policies for causing the chaos in Germany. Ironically, Soros himself was recently outed as being the puppetmaster behind the refugee Trojan horse that has destabilized Europe.

When the warnings start, it’s already too late.

We’ve seen this before.

If you’ve been following collapses around the world for the past few years, you know that right before all heck breaks loose, the government issues a half-hearted warning along the lines of, “You’re on your own now.” But by then, it’s already too late. People who try to prepare after the government tells them to will be dealing with limited supplies as everyone else tries to get prepped too.

It happened in Greece and Venezuela both, and it’s highly possible that we’re about to watch history repeat itself.

Will Germany become the next falling domino in the collapse of the Western world?

The lesson that we can take from this is that being prepared far in advance of a collapse is the wisest course of action. If you stock up on emergency food, water, and other vital supplies before the crowd, you’ll do so at better prices with better options. Last summer, our own government issued 2 warnings to the American people to get prepared, but very few people took it seriously.

Don’t wait until it’s too late.

  • The immigration crisis is a symptom, not the cause. Fretting about that is akin to fretting about a cut on your arm while being bludgeoned to death. The root cause of this and of virtually all major problems in the world stems from the belief in authority. Stop supporting government, ALL government, and you’ll no longer be a part of the problem.

  • As a US citizen living in Germany I can tell you that there is no “epidemic of rape and violence”. We have seen isolated terror events as in other countries in Europe and the US. No one I know has heard this decree to ” stockpile”

    • Interesting comment, Susan. Not that I trust the BBC or anything, but this is the relevant part:

      “the new civil defence concept, to go before ministers on Wednesday, […] The German news website Frankfurter Allgemeine (FAZ) said the new concept was set out in a 69-page German Interior Ministry document.’ …


      From that I read, ‘it’s in the works’, and, ‘it’s set in motion’ and is set to be broadcast more widely. That you haven’t heard it yet, does not mean it’s not set to be put forth more widely. But, who knows (?) in this era of lies and propaganda.

      Do you live in a big city and do you regularly watch or read the main stream media outlets there?

      Either, you, or the BBC – are in error – or, things haven’t, ‘taken off yet’.

      That’s my take. For what it’s worth. Whatever the case may be, thanks for your comment.

      Also, one person’s, ‘isolated terror events’ is another person’s, ‘epidemic’. I suppose it depends on how plural the word, ‘events’ is and if you’re involved in some way? And, how you can extrapolate from the official figures, I mean, when three people get beat-up, odds are good, only one will report it.

      I do hope you’ll chime in again.

    • Hi Susan. I can get you another link to the stockpiling article, and there are links embedded in my article too.


      What do you make of the sexual assaults in Cologne on New Year’s Eve? I’ve read numerous reports on similar situations occurring in Germany. I would really like to hear from someone who lives there. Another question, if you don’t mind: are the immigrants as plentiful as the media is reporting? And is it a problem?
