Definitely a great question and one I'm sure we have all debated ourselves. Like you we have warned a few to the benefits of prepping and received the same "tin foil hat" reaction. It's easy to say well then they're on their own when shtf happens.... however reality is guess where they will show up when it does. So as I prep stock (food and water especially) I account for the extra mouths but it will be made clear when they arrive they will be expected to be productive member.

The thing is, how many friends ya got that will come around and expect you to hand out to them? Best you warn them all now and let them know they better be prepared. Look at Noah, he warned the people, and they just laughed at them prepare for the flood. How many people ended up in the ark, 8? You can't help the world, because your friends now, will most likely come after you to get what you have prepared. You'll see just how friendly they will be to you when they need your help. Sure they think we've all got a loose bolt up stairs right now! Maybe family members you can prepare extra for. One day they will see you was right. It is called survival!

To the OP;

You have discussed it wit him. He even had a warning with the local quake.

If He has no children / large external expenses ..... He likely has more disposable income than you! If that is the case, he should consider himself duly warned. If he doesn't even buy a bag of rice, that's gross negligence on his part.

A strict "ant and grasshopper" policy on that dud. Anything major happens, warn him away with a show of force if need be. Anything minor, invite information discussion, maybe cover his a$$ very short term (e.g. House fire) and remind him he's on his own next time unless he contributes / caches ahead of time. It's not like he doesn't have a BOL/place to cache, thnaks to you, right?
