jock world 1 of 2


JOCK WORLD

The Druid Dude sneers and bespittles any mention of a catastrophic mass die-off as Hollywood fantasy ( even though the species has gone through bottleneck near extinction events  before.  Apparently, being too pessimistic invites reader desertion, readership financial support withdrawal and other forces far more dire than the actual future ), but I embrace the concept and try to make it my cornerstone philosophy.   As such, I present to you: Jock World.  Flash back to that horrid squalid time in your life when your world was a timid toned down version of a prison, high school.  There was no anal violation, but you were imprisoned, indoctrinated, bullied and propagandized in hidden ways and forced to conform into a mechanized cog in the giant economic machine producing profit for our masters.  From there on you would more easily fit into the military and corporate positions, true, but high school was where the rubber met the road, where you were violently bent to thy will of others.  Other school experiences had become progressively worse, but High was where the inmates themselves helped in the conditioning.  You got the final, most brutal, longest lasting molding.  Your will was bent to the herd, by the herd.  And who was the worst, moving from mental to physical persuasion?  The jocks.  Now, imagine your future as a rerun of High School, with jocks out of control.  The retarded but bulky enforcing the rule of Darwinian Survival.  I contend that in a severe enough collapse, the strong will drive out the intelligent and exacerbate the prolonging of any recovery.

*

Okay, you think you are smart.  And you most likely are.  Intelligence has been encouraged for generations ( even if cultural mores didn’t catch up, the economic rewards for intelligence have been in place for some time ) as has the active breeding by the lower classes to achieve it ( the elites have always had an eye towards that outcome, but recently the Mandarin classes have done so ).  In fact, I’d have to guess that most of my readers are a step above just because they are reading this ( not that I claim to be all that smart, just that I’m capable of seeing outside the constraining mental boxes most like as womb surrogates ).  Your chances are better at surviving.  Even better than your average idiot prepper trapped in an urban golden cage.  But here is the thing.  You are probably TOO smart.  You think you can outthink the horrid little immoral criminals and the unprepared masses who will stop at nothing to take what you have.  Do the math ( it is what you are good at, yes? ).  If someone is faced with two choices, cannibalism or murder, which will they choose first?  It will not be too hard for them to kill you for a few cans of chili or a few bags of rice, because nobody embraces eating long pork as the first choice. 

*

Your problem is that you are smart, but you are faced with overwhelming numbers ( and Quantity Is It’s Own Quality.  I’ve heard that attributed  to both Stalin and Lenin.  I’m inclined to believe it was Lenin who strikes me as the far more intelligent, far less brutishly thuggish of the two.  And we all know what happened to Lenin, don’t we ).  Don’t allow the hubris of your own intelligence to blind you to the numbers out there.  You might outsmart them all, but you can’t stop the momentum of their very mass ( the “smart” ones who think they’ve outsmarted the city mobs by calculating they are at a far enough distance from them that a dispersal rate works in their favor are a good example of the hubris of intelligence ) and you can’t stop random events or Black Swans.  You can’t confuse probability with possibility.

    the barbarians always come out on top throughout history.
    you must be brutish in order to deal with the brutish.
    you would have to shoot early and often, and sometimes heartbreakingly mistakenly, in order to survive.
    is it worth it?
    i know of some who intend to go in the first nuclear blast if they can. they don't see living in the ensuing misery as worth the sacrifice since living through a nuclear nightmare and coming out the other side requires thousands of years

    1. I don't think being brutish is going to be so hard, contrary to Rainbow Warrior/PC/Bitches Power propaganda. You have a tribe/clan, a solid team, it is easier to fight harder to protect them. Not many folks are worth fighting for today, except your children. And even then, your "tribe" today works against you with them.

    2. I'm part of a very small tribe currently, always looking to expand, but caution above all else. Me, my wife, him and his wife and their 7 yo son. 2 small families. 40 miles from a major midwest metropolis - wish it was 200 miles. Harden your heart.

      Delete
    3. How many places are actually 200 miles from anything? Sure, here in the Great Basin, but the isolation comes at a price. Be glad for forty.

    4. I guess I'm one of those very rare people, I thrive on isolation. I got lucky and picked a mate that is likewise. We go weeks without seeing another human being, and that is just fine with us. As far as I'm concerned most people aren't worth a damn. The older I get (61 right now) the more important my peace of mind is. Eventually it'll become so important I'll die for it. There may be a pun in there somewhere.

      Come on spring, I got stuff to get done!

  2. And don't make the mistake too many D&D playing geeks do, that all jocks are dumb. They aren't, there are some who are both "jocks" and SMART - obviously for public consumption in high school they tended to minimize the appearance of those smarts, but to ever think your potential opponent is dumber than you is to ask for defeat.
    It is up to us 'preppers'/'survivalists' to prepare mentally, physically, emotionally, along with buying the necessary preps.
    I plan to do my best to give an appearance of 'dirt poor' to just about everyone - just enough stuff to keep myself and family from barely being in (much) need ourselves. You want to be in the bottom 20% of poorest people in most cases (appearance wise) to avoid being a target of those seeking wealth, but (especially from CPS) above the lowest 5% to avoid looking like you will become dependent upon, or a threat to, others.

    1. Typical prepper:
      Mentally: I have an AR, I am invincible!
      Physically: I walk from my SUV to my work desk. One day soon I can see my testicles.
      Emotionally: I deserve to keep my money after the collapse. I hate poor people.
      Buying Necessary Preps: How many cases of MRE's do I need?

      Delete
    2. Whew! - there for a minute I was resembling that remark far too much.
      But, no AR here, and thanks to your advice the SUV (truck actually) only get used when it is too dangerously impractical to ride a bike.
      And I do plan to keep my FRN's post collapse, they should make good semi-reusable TP with their high cotton content, wash, reuse, etc. until they nearly fall apart then burn in the closed air tight stove.

    3. I wonder if there would be a bio-weapon use when burning...

    underestimating even of stupid people their ability to be cunning will be fatal.
    stupid bears cautious watching as much as anyone smart.
    the smart often use the stupid or seemingly helpless to gauge your capabilities.
    use them as bait and as spies.
    it is hard but try to be suspicious even of people you know.

    the grey man habit seems to be most useful.

    1. I kept underestimating the ex #2 for 18 years. Cunning, devious, hateful until the end. I don't think she was smart, at all. And I should have known better.

    2. If we get into story's about our X wive's ability to suck money out of us this could be a long thread. I'm just glad to be free of her and plan to never put myself through that again.

  5. The oft-repeated almost-safe distance (measured from the EDGE not the center) from a metro area is based on the "average" half-tank of gas. If someone has a pair of 5 gallon cans and an Accord wagon, they could optimistically add 350 miles to their ~200 miles in the half-tank.
    I think that folks won't be range-limited so much as channelized and trapped with quite a bit of fuel still on-board. Once vehicles are stopped on the road, drinking water will run out well before anything else, even assuming well-behaved cooperative folks of various breeds holding hands and singing hymns. + or - horror based on weather/season.
    Roadblocks in the middle of nowhere (100% DUI inspection?) as a local strategy to keep cars/people away from home base?
    Planning for a lot of salvageable car parts after clean-up. Got scrapping tools?

  6. (Intelligence has been encouraged for generations)

    I beg to differ on that, there is a free downloadable book that is named “The deliberate dumbing down of America” it talks about the government’s action through the control of what schools teach on lowering drive and IQ level. And looking around I have to think they have been successful. I just don’t see most people as all that smart these days. Yea they have training to do a specific and sometimes complicated job. But then they seem to not know much about most things outside that task to do their job. A good well-rounded inelegance just isn’t there.

    As an example I use to work at a full-service gas station (back in the early 1980’s) and it was right next to a hospital. A doctor came in with a coolant leak, it was the water pump. We explained how a water pump worked. He just could not understand how a simple pump works. I remember thinking that if he can’t understand how a pump works (a very simple thing) how the heck could he understand how the human body works as a body is many times more complicated then a water pump. I was 19 or 20-years old at the time and that was my awaking to the fact that many people I interacted with were next to stupid. Nothing over the years has changed that opinion.

    For myself I have found that the most important things I have learned has happened post government indoctrinated school learning. I’m 55-years old and have never stopped my active desire to learn and do more. Everything I do in my work was self-taught, it’s been that way for every job I have had. Thinking back I can’t think of much value a high school education had in preparing me for the real world at large other then learning how to read, and even there I did a lot of my own learning as even in school I always had books with me to read that had nothing to do with the classes I was taking. And yea I took some heat for my desire to read and learn more then the other kids.


    Here is a link to a review and free download link for The deliberate dumbing down of America.

    1. Thanks for the link. You are right, but my point was that the goal was trying to deliberately increase intelligence for offspring as it was now a positive trait. Even if the goal was not met, the attempt was made.

      Delete
  7. Increase intelligence, the attempt was made?

    I'd like to know how because I really don't see it has been done or that people are smarter then they were 200-years ago. Yea we know more about current tech, but as far as people being smarter, I don't think so...

    1. We don't disagree, people ARE stupid today. In some cases, near functional near-retards. But those with the means do select mates for intelligence. Or, in our case, the appearance of intelligence. As intelligence equates to more money on the job market, wealth breeds wealth by trying to select genetically for it. Then, everything on the nurture side is attempted to increase intelligence. Just because the end results are poor does not mean they weren't attempted.

  8. Not that it will ever happen, but if we could get government out of the school business I think we would be on the path to building a bit more intelligence back into the populist at large. Government has people convinced we need them in every aspect of our life including schools for our children. But people were teaching their kids long before The US Government was around.

    James have you read Molon Labe? It's interesting if you have a libertarian mindset. It talks about getting government out of the school business. Not what I would call a great book, but worth the read.

    1. I read Molon Labe once after buying it, then had to donate it to the thrift store ( along with others ) when we moved with all our belongings in the Hippie Bread Van. Then I borrowed a copy and read it. I just, last week, got around to buying another copy. That move, ten years ago, was my last "move after paring down". Since then, it all goes with me, and I'll never move again. I can't count the number of times I've pared down then bought the replacements. Anyway, not a great book writing wise but great idea wise, which is why I keep buying it. Boston's books are getting scarcer and pricier. Good think I got them when I did.

    2. Another book on this subject that has excellent reviews (I haven't read it yet, but plan on it) is Why Government Doesn't Work, by Harry Browne. I think he touches quite a bit on keeping government out of the schools in a chapter.

      Mr Browne ran for president under the Libertarian party some years back. While no political system is perfect, I find that the libertarians come the closest to it for me. You don't really want either side of the isle to run things, but ideally to keep government interference to a minimum for all. Both the left and the modern right (neo-cons) will impose freedom stealing legislation whenever given the opportunity. As it stands, it's primarily the left that has triumphed in this department.

      If you're interested James, I can send a copy your way?

    3. I read that book back in the day, but don't have a copy now. If you want to send a copy, I certainly won't say no. Just send to the c/o FISH address. It would be a nice blast to the past, a reminder of back when I was idealistic and not so cynical and jaded.

    4. Copy sent James. I hear ya. I know that we're beyond hope at this point. I suppose it gives some hope to think in terms of "what ifs?"

    5. Many thanks, in advance. No hope is okay, it reduces ones time wasted on optimism. Focuses ones resolve and vision. Makes whiskey taste better :)

I must moderate-trust me. You don't want to see what happens otherwise. Sometimes it takes awhile to respond as I only check two or three times a day. No N-Bombs, nothing to get me libeled. Otherwise, have at it. If you criticize me, make sure to praise my hair first.
