This show has many issues but here are the main ones.
1- It exploits ignorant and misinformed people. This is more voyeurism of a very small fringe of the population and depresses me if I watch it. At some point this show is equal or possibly worse than Hoarders. But in the case of Hoarders these people suffer from mental illness not ignorance.
2- Listening to these people is an exercise in restraint. They are largely uninformed and base their life-decisions on anecdotal information they glean from the internet and other like-minded people as equally ignorant. They lack the imagination to redirect their energy and efforts to endeavors that could benefit society. Their apocalyptic view of the world is unsupported by real-world events, think Katrina, Sandy, and Fukushima, and provides them with a platform that simply reinforces a mistaken belief that all Americans adhere to or support this behavior.
In the end, even if they are right, most people would prefer to die than live in the world these people are preparing for. This is probably this biggest omission they make when preparing for a doomsday scenario: Would you really want to live in such a world?
