(NaturalNews) The times are a-changin', and that's not necessarily a good thing.

Sure, there are plenty of kindhearted people in the world. Yes, happiness can be derived from nature, a child's smile or positive mantras. However, the frightening reality is that we're fast-becoming a society straight from Orwell's book 1984. Excessive greed, mainstream media that spews forth recycled Twitter feeds from celebrities, fear-based reasoning and hidden agendas, both stateside and abroad, are taking over.

Understandably, many people feel that now is the time to prepare themselves for civilization's economic and social collapse so that they are poised to survive the consequences.

As such, several "prepper" sites such as ThePepperProject.com exist. Their particular objective is to provide those desiring to remain safe and healthy with ways to prepare for the inevitable collapse of society. Tips on everything from food storage to how to handle medical emergencies are found on such sites.(1)

The need to "reverse the downward trend from which we are suffering"

Another site, RonPaulInstitute.org, which is dedicated to the protection and awareness of civil liberties, also urges people to seriously consider the times they are living in.

In a special report, Dr. Ron Paul wrote, "We have too many police, too many laws, and too much exemption of government officials from the crimes they commit. Both adding police and increasing entitlements involve expanding the role of government in an effort to solve problems that too much government has already caused." He went on to say, "This problem can only be ended by maximizing liberty and getting people to realize that self-reliance, hard work, and the absence of coercive force by individuals and government is the only way to reverse the downward trend from which we are suffering."(2)

How a coffee can may keep people in survival mode

For those who are on board with these thoughts, now is the time to start preparing. Actions need not be grandiose; moving to a remote part of the country or living off the grid may be wise, but a simple coffee can and some smart thinking can help when survival mode becomes necessary.

In a brief SHTFblog.com article, one author who signs off as "Jarhead Survivor," says that a coffee can that houses some key items can be extremely beneficial. Designed to help a person for only a short duration, the author notes that creating such a can is ideal for overnight or temporary situations.(3)

How to make a coffee can survival kit

Making one is easy. Simply fill a good-sized coffee can with items you personally deem necessary for survival. Much of it involves common sense, such as food and protection from the elements. As such, an inexpensive poncho and some portable, high-energy, on-the-go foods are ideal.

Take some time to think about your own personal health needs and outdoor environment when it comes to adding other to the coffee can.

Jarhead Survivor suggests the following:

  • Compass
  • Multi-tool
  • Pen
  • Paper (to write a note or start a fire)
  • Poncho
  • Nails (helps to create tent/coverage using the poncho if necessary)
  • Spoon
  • Knife
  • Stove (and fuel)
  • Paracord bracelet
  • Flashlight
  • Matches
  • Small food item

Of course, pay attention to any medication or medical devices you may need, which can be put in the can at the last minute if size allows. Pills, paper medical instructions and devices such as asthma inhalers are a few examples.

You'd be surprised what a well-packed coffee can is capable of holding. With smart thinking that narrows items down to the bare-bone necessities, quite a bit can fit. Furthermore, many items such as flashlights and utensils are made in very small sizes while still keeping effectiveness intact. Therefore, consider compact and collapsible items; a bevy of such tools, gear and compasses can be found in the outdoor sections of many popular stores.

Places such as one's home, car or work environment -- anywhere a person spends a great deal of their time -- are where the coffee can and its contents should be housed.
