jock world 2 of 2


JOCK WORLD 2

We are living in a world where intelligence is not only rewarded but almost mandatory just to start competing.  Brute muscle powder is no longer economically rewarding.  The workplace has been almost completely feminized and any muscle work downgraded in importance to compensate for women’s lack of upper body strength ( the upper percentile of female athletes are only stronger than unconditioned males ).  Female equality/political correctness has not only eroded pay, on par with the effects of immigration if not worse, but both endangered our nation with its effects on military readiness and helped robotize manual labor to the point of vulnerability ( other forces at work helped these trends-feminism was just one of several ).  And don’t get me wrong, intelligence IS a species trait that has served us well.  But culture is vastly more important than intelligence.  Culture is the species DNA which passes on beneficial behavior.  Intelligence needn’t be in constant use, as the past fruits of that are passed down in culture.  I would even state that today’s vast population of bred to better intelligence people are going to do us very little good as our cultural institutions have been destroyed ( guess what I’m going to say next.  That’s right, “thanks in no small part to the feminist movement” ).  By wrecking our culture ( which, admittedly, can ultimately be attributed to our economic masters who used the process as a profit mechanism.  I do enjoy bashing FemiNazi’s but I’ll always give the devil his due ), then by breeding out warriors and inbreeding nerds and geeks, our immediate future is one of the survival mechanisms of culture and violence being destroyed or severely hampered.

Who is outside our economy?  Who is marginalized and maligned?  Those dumb jocks.  Almost all of the jobs anymore are accredited or licensed not just to minimize competition, increase government control and revenue, maximize earnings, but also to edge out the uneducated.  Even something as simple as cutting hair required thousands of dollars in “college education” in most states.  What was started for medical doctors with the excuse of public safety has intruded itself into almost every occupation as a means of profit, control and exclusion.  School anymore is a joke, just studying for the test rather than retention, but that is enough to exclude whole classes of people.  Not only is this stupid, as it nourishes the next rebellion, but it marginalizes otherwise useful classes.

Come the collapse, the citizens of the civilization are going to be in grave danger from the barbarians within the gates as the citizens have been bred to uselessness insofar as surviving crisis ( and the Pretty Prepper Punks thinking they are Billy Bad Ass enough to take on the barbarians are just poser rich losers who haven’t a clue ).  Brute force trumps intelligence in the end, come the collapse of the infrastructure which utilized that intelligence.  No matter how smart you are, intelligence will only help you PRIOR to the collapse.  If you took the needed steps to prepare, such as crowd avoidance and other strategies, then you just might live to pass on your superior genes.  But more likely than not, the better DNA being passed on will be that of the warriors.  At the end of the first day of the apocalypse, brute force will prevail.  And that implies the death, or at least dearth, of intelligence.  Force and might supplant smarts.  Intelligence is only needed in advanced, energy surplus economies.  In a die-off, you NEED intelligence to pass on needed skills and knowledge, but what you GET are survival of the fittest.  To survive, with limited resources available, the strong eliminate the smart.  That makes the recovery take much longer.  And so the cycle continues.

  1. While the warrior may prevail in battle knowledge has always found ways to hide out of sight. Modern warriors need nerds to maintain/salvage and build the interstructure of warfare. Remember even barbarians had logistics.

    1. Barbarians had slaves for the tasks civilization needed, as in constructing siege machines. But first the world had to have agricultural empires to attack. I don't see that happening immediately during or after the die-off.

    2. Your premise is right but you forget the first 2 generation after collapse will seek the luxury and amenities' off the world lost.

    3. There will most certainly be "keepers of the knowledge", as the market dictates. I see a few slave/chemists and the like making the arsenals for the barbarians, also.

  2. If we get a bad collapse where there is a period without law or the perception of being held accountable for ones action I think there will indeed be barbarians that will take action to pillage. We have seen this after the King riots in LA. Low-life people will see such event as a shopping spree to take what they want and somehow think there will be no day of reckoning for their actions.

    But this period will likely be short lived as (to the dismay of politicians) there are a lot of people in this country that own guns and will use them to protect their families. And people in general don't like anarchy and uncertainty of their future so I see a lot of local police forces and normal people forming up to protect their local area if government can't seem to do it. After all, how long would you put up with a bunch of brigands hell-bent on killing and raping your family? My guess not at all.

    What protects barbarians or brigands from acting out today is the same thing that prevents normal people from killing them. That being government protection. As if you take the law into your own hands and shoot a thug hell-bent on killing or robbing you it's a good bet you could end up in jail.

    When you take away the threat of government action to curb barbarians from having their way to rape, kill and pillage you also at the same time take away the government action to stop people from protecting their family. It may be a great life being a low-life brigand for a few weeks, but then all the sudden your like is going to be taken away because people must kill you if they want a chance of life. You will become a target of everyone with a rifle with a scope.

    At this point it's going to be free hunting season on barbarians and brigands and their life will be short. Yes they will kill people, but every engagement will put them at risk of death and the more engagements you do the more you are likely to get high-speed lead poisoning.

    If the collapse is bad enough to disrupt the flow of gasoline it will also make it hard for brigands to expand out far. This may give the people out in the country a buffer from the violence cities are likely to see.

    But if we don't have a full-blown collapse and only hard-times (think 1930’s or Argentina in 2001, or Grease today) the cities will actually be safer (FerFal writes about this and tells what did happen in Argentina in 2001 in his “Must-Have” book) as everybody must have money and cities have more money flowing then the country in a down-turned economy. What happened in Argentina in 2001 was that people in remote farms were robbed, raped, killed because the bad guys knew there was little help likely to come galloping over the hill to rescue people. No one can hear you scream when your closest neighbor is a mile or more away. But in a city the neighbor is close and it makes it much harder to spend days in a home doing bad things without being noticed as did happen in Argentina in 2001. (Again this applies to anything short of a Mad Mad world, and I think that is the most likely thing.)

    It's downright hard to make a living in the country for most people. And remove the easy flow of goods to the country we have today and it makes for a hard life that we are not use to. I would love to be out in the country (way out) but the reality of my work (home repair) needs a good amount of people that need my work. Most peoples jobs are the same way. I've been a prepper for 25-years, but only actively been working on working myself off the grid for 10-years and I still feel I need contact with people to work to make money. In the next year or so I plan a move to 25-miles out or so as it’s out enough to give me a buffer and still close enough to still work. But who knows how it will work out. History is a good predictor of the future, but nothing is written in stone.

    1. All of us are living near too many people, if we work. Fact of life. Sucks to be a survivalist who needs a meat space job. I still think the best we can do is minimize the population we live in now and have a place in the boonies as a fallback. The future is of course unknown. I act like I know it, but I'm just assuming worst case. But I don't burn my bridges, either.

  3. (I had to break this up into 2-parts as it was over the word limit.)

    I have a lot of things to survive without working, but it's mighty hard to put up enough stuff to last the rest of your life without an income. Even more so with my income as I somewhat do seasonal work. I feel it's a good trade off as I really like my free time to do my own thing and not spend every waking moment on the treadmill.

    Even if we get a Mad Max world, we will still need to trade goods and services and that means cities. I can't imagine trade without some protection from bad guys.

    1. There is no trade without protection. Which is why our country is in such dire straights. When the Petro-dollar goes, so goes the economic means to buy imports. But even if we could, we no longer have the navy to protect the shipping. Same post-collapse. Without a strong enough govt. to protect trade roads/waterways, no trade happens and each location is on their own. If they don't have it, they can't get it.

  4. Good article James. Societies were built upon thousands of years of keeping what works, and discarding what doesn't. The current gender roles along with just about everything else in play today is unnatural.

    Stupid liberals think that they can change what stood the test of time for thousands of years, within a few short years, and replace it with something that runs contrary to nature. And everything that they have tried to improve upon, they have screwed up far worse than the problems that they thought they were fixing!

  5. It occurs to me that in a die off scenario, the intelligent barbarians will be the survivors. This doesn't mean the low lifes haunting the meth labs and biker bars, but the prepared people who have the psychological ability to perform the barbarian tasks necessary to survive.

    Owning a gun and a thousand rounds doesn't make one a warrior. Being able to aim center mass and pull the trigger takes a mindset the majority don't have. Even in combat some people shoot high, or not at all.

    If you're not certain you have the mental ability to turn barbarian when it's necessary, you better have enough supplies to feed those who do.

    1. I kind of look forward to going barbarian. Hopefully I'll survive the first round as it's OJT.

  6. I sort of agree, I think 'average' intelligence may well be at risk...but sheer rat-bastard Machiavellian cunning will be sharpened even further. Most warlords in rougher areas of the world today are not big beefy buggers....they still look like politicians.
    Some are still big beefy soldier types...but they combine brawn AND intelligence.
    These new leaders will just be making sure that the folks underneath them are just intelligent enough to do their jobs, but not intelligent enough to be a threat.
    I would hazard a 10 am Saturday guess that is why leadership in early human tribes was often genetic. The smart ones ran it, and their genes were passed on. Pure strength-nased ones failed to thrive, and succumbed to other, more cunning, groups.
    Just a thought.

    1. Bright and brawn is a rare combination ( prior to gunpowder, brawn still counted ), but then I imagine you don't need all that many to get everyone leadershiped up. I'd agree on the genetic strengthening. Why else do them sexy gals love those Bad Boys? Still at work strengthening the human race. Even as the cultural tries to curtail it.

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.
