Re: Is Zom-poc/post-apoc the genre for misanthropes?

Wouldn't narratives about people who are unprepared but who succeed through a sharp learning curve be exactly the kind of narratives preppers would like? We don't always seek out stories that are exactly what we expect, but stories that are sideways to them: cautionary tales, stories that paradoxically confirm the need to prepare by showing someone who is not prepared (but who has secret reserves of strength and resourcefulness which allow him or her to prosper against the odds, while everyone else dies around them).
I want to be sedated.
