Prepper for Society Decline

by craigburma | created - 18 Nov 2012 | updated - 3 weeks ago | Public

Social Change is never one person, idea or moment in time.

These movies collected together are a tapistry of social change throughout the United States (with one title in Canada).

Often times these fights provided little benefit to those directly involved but provided GREAT benefit to all of us living in the United States today.
