civil war II part 6


CIVIL WAR 2 part 6

Crime has been part of the American experience since aforementioned Peak Per Capita Energy and certainly even before that.  The complete morons who dwell in those areas where it is illegal to defend yourself ( and where Angry Black Men are given carte blanc to attack anyone who is White, or in the case of Florida anyone who is White-ish ) have pathetically encased themselves in Defense Light tactics such as living in better neighborhoods and driving newer vehicles which have a much better chance of not breaking down anywhere near the Bad Part Of Town.  This is great, and everyone should be doing something just like this, but when you live cheek and jowl close to the ghetto you will still get residual effects from those that prey upon the working class.  So what are we paying taxes for, if all that welfare isn’t stopping crime?  Well, you aren’t seeing open rebellion, are you?  That is your tax dollars at work.  Making drugs illegal isn’t just about centralized control and a boost to the police state, all nice bonuses to our rulers that they are, but also at its heart racial control ( don’t think that a Black half breed President makes a bit of difference, or his crime tolerant policy which is merely more Divide And Conquer.  His controllers are not Black ). 

*

Banning Saturday Night Specials was all about ratcheting up the cost of armaments to the city poor ( the rural poor just bought a cheap Sears & Roebuck break-open shotgun ), because not only do armed city folk tend to concentrate firepower near the centers of power, they also tend to be Black.  And no self-respecting White politician is going to hand a Black mob that metaphorical lynch rope ( neither are Black politicians who are All About The Benjamin’s and besides sputtering violently never bite the hand that pays them ).  And banning drugs helps keep most violent Black males incarcerated.  Black males, predictably, turn to dealing drugs when there are no jobs available ( there being no jobs because few businesses wish to invest money in a building and equipment which will promptly be burned down in the next protest-nor will they receive fire insurance for the same reason.  Which Blacks tend to do to protest there being no jobs, among many other reasons.  A nice Catch-22.  Blacks might think they are rebels and Super Killer Ninja Outlaws, but they are indeed playing the role that was designed for them.  No jobs leads to crime which leads to more police which leads to combating the only economic activity making them money which leads to more crime which justifies even more crime fighting and harsher sentences for Blacks ).

*

The cycle of criminal business and widespread prison terms ( and returning prisoners who cannot get hired anywhere due to their record prompting them to return to crime ) guarantees that crime is here to stay and to get worse.  Crime will get much worse, in step with our economic contraction.  Even if drugs were to be legalized ( the relaxing of marijuana prohibition, while certainly capable of reversing course with a new administration, for now merely frees up resources for combating the harder drugs-I for one don’t see it as the camels nose under the tent ), which I can’t see being advantageous for the Powers That Be, without jobs there will be crime.  And if there can be no other outcome with our economic collapse than far higher unemployment, it follows that crime will also become much worse ( if nothing else, newly unemployed newly arrived criminals will be battling the existing organizations for far higher body counts and gunfire exchange ).

*

So why are you living right next to these Crime Zones?  Would you want to live right on the other side of the Mexican border, with the constant paramilitary combat between gangs and the Federales?  Of course not, right?  So why are you living in that large urban area, with its built-in paramilitary force growing in size as the economy contracts?  The inevitable direction is towards larger and more violent behavior.  You think living in an un-gated ( or even a gated one-any serious force could breech the nearly non-existent defenses with a third grade grasp on strategy ) suburban development will save you?  Do you REALLY think your expensive pimped out ride will save you?  American’s place way too much supernatural importance in their automobiles, their talismans receiving far higher conceived abilities than are warranted.  It is sheet metal and glass, with a 125 year old technology propelling it, dude.  If you act like a five year old thinking a fort made of chairs and bed sheets keeps away the boogeyman, you will be in for an unpleasant surprise.

*

Remember, crime breeds criminals and criminals make very good combatants.  Not soldiers, reliant upon a nation states logistics, but warriors only reliant on their tribe.  Care to guess which will prevail in our decentralizing future?  More next time.

  1. An over-looked danger to those living in a gated community is the fact that they can also be locked in. When the Ground Apes chain/jam/block their gate, they will be fish in a barrel.

    When these Liberal Progressives (who own no guns) are being pillaged and raped by the very people they purported to advocate for, I will be inwardly smiling.

    1. Liberal progressives are simply told to care, and since they are incapable of critical thinking they obey. We should, almost, feel sorry for them.

    2. Their over the top caustic nature prevents sane people from caring about them. Off with their nutz!

    3. I would feel sorry for them if they kept their views, opinions, politics, and laws to themselves. But as soon as they start inflicting all their liberal crap on me, my give-a-darn goes away.

      When the walled communities become bloodbaths it will just be the consequences of getting what they always wished for.

  2. Here's a truism for you: "A man convinced against his will, is of the same opinion still." I wouldn't disparage urban or suburban gated-community dwellers too much. Most people, no matter how compelling your arguments, won't move to a long-term viable area. The gated community would automatically band together and become a tribe, "insiders vs. outsiders." The insiders should be aware that MANY of the "insiders" of the gated community are just as corrupt and dangerous as the outsiders and can't be trusted. However, "the enemy of your enemy (potentially) is your friend." All entrances to the subdivision can be reinforced with the least viable/valuable vehicles possessed by the residents. Since most of these gated communities have no storage space for resources or the ability to gather or produce resources, (and no way to protect from house-to-house crown fires) they will ultimately fall in anything other than a short-term emergency. An organized defensive perimeter on an urban gated community will likely make a good target of cooperation for looters (they must have something to protect). The subsequent conflict will likely reduce the population of looters before the gated community falls. That means fewer problems for those that live in viable areas, although realistically it might not reduce the problems enough to make a difference. If you're so stubborn that you think you can make it in an urban center up to the last minute before you bug out (or even strategize to stay) the gated community is a pretty decent choice on a list of bad (and only bad) choices.

    Lord Bison,

    Might I recommend the website of a man who is living as a lone neanderthal in an increasingly violent hive. I swear with this column you might be channeling this dude.
    www.jameslafond.com. Alot of stuff on urban living without a car, combatives of the non firearm sort, and history of the sort that I think that you could/would appreciate.

    2. Baltimore is at least 5 years ahead of pdx in decay/collapse. Many lessons there. Thanks.

    3. As far as decay and collapse look at Detroit. In the 1950's / 1960's it was at the cutting edge of what was coming for the USA. And today it is at the cutting edge of what is coming for the USA.

      I read that Detroit has 75,000 vacant buildings, that doesn't include homes. Scary to think this is just around the corner for the rest of the country.

      Baltimore is about 40-50 years ahead of the pdx area in terms of decay/collapse. The only reason that Baltimore isn't completely like Detroit or America's other forgotten hellhole Gary Indiana...IS that DC is 30 miles down the road. Federal bureaucrats have been settling in the city and working in DC since at least the 1980's. Their high wages buy a hell of a lot more house in Baltimore. Thing is they have to contend with getting mugged, shot, etc.

  4. Hence the job I got. It will pay off the debt incurred whilst I was laid up ! Credit cards are a blessing and curse. Thank the gods for you and your followers ! :-)
    Soon as the debt is cleared, we are out of here !
    Mine and momma's SS will suffice after that. The plan is to head west, out of this god forsaken sweltering pit of overpopulated humanity.....
    Meanwhile, working on the 76 motorhome to make it more prep friendly. It's only 21 ft. But us old cruising sailors know many tricks for utilising space :-)
    Always have the swamp BOL if we don't get it done in time....

    1. ...headed to the still overpopulated overheated-but, it's a dry heat!-underwated but still much preferable Great Desert. At least out here you can pull off almost any road outside the metro areas and disappear. Outside of the Artic circle or the Amazon, where else can you get away from all these bastards? Best of luck to you!

    2. Class-C tricks for dry camping:
      Good solar: PV, solar oven, solar distillation. Efficient & effective LED lighting: Use incandescent factory rv fixtures with upgrade bulbs at first. Foot-pump water to save water and 12v, as well as 12v electrical line no longer needed. Composting urine-diverting toilet with thrifty vent fan to save weight of black holding tank (and the weight/space of things to deal with the black holding tank). Upgrade house battery size to at least 160 pounds as a series-pair of 6v GC2 batteries (12v-220A/h total) which a couple hundred Watts of pv can keep charged. If built-in genset is not working, sell it, along with the roof Aircon unit. Get money, save weight, reduce height (add 12v fan-vent where Aircon was mounted). Add another pair of batteries and more/better pv to charge (if you find current system inadequate). Less vehicle weight means better fuel economy, more cargo capacity, fewer suspension problems, less stress on engine/transmission.

      Pre-collapse disaster avoidance: best-grade of AAA towing insurance will pay-off with first problem, best-most insurance from good national company, current tags, clean-respectable-looking, comprehensive on-board tool kit with spares, NEW TIRES/Brakes and fully-operational exterior lighting checked every day before pulling out.

      Ultimately, all RV's are storage sheds, preferably on a dry pad on owned land before they stop running or can't be fueled. Motorhomes are beacons of civilization (power-water-food-concealment) while on the road, attractive to looters and squatters when undefended.

      Best wishes!

    3. Be careful going out West, you don't want to end up in a place with little to no water. And if water is scare you can bet government will restrict your use of it to your determent. In Colorado it was against the law to collect rain water. It's been changed to allow you 110-gallons (2 55-gal barrels) of it. That's not much water really. In California there is PSA's telling people to pee while taking a shower to save water.

      If you are worried about EMP or the grid going down you should not live in a place that is only viable because of grid power. Without the grid power the water stops, water to grow food stops, water to drinks stops, water to clean food stops, water to clean ourselves stops. Disease (clean water really helps keep it at bay) comes back in force as it did in the past.

      I've heard it said that if it's a naturally dry area (as most of the West is) and more people live there then did in Wyatt Earp's time you should not live there as there is no way to support that many people without the grid to bring in water. There is a reason why more people didn't live there before the grid.

    4. PDX-great work. I usually avoid mobile travel advice, not being my forte.
      Chuck-storing multiple years of wheat and not raising crops or livestock alieviates most issues with settling in the West-just have a Plan B. With rain barrels, have the set-up and then secretly divert to an underground larger storage. That said, I'd avoid any state that is trying to ban water collection-it is a future California or worse. I'd never recommend a well for long term survival. It is a vile temptress.

    5. Chuck, good post.

      I have also used the 1800's as a point for people to think about the natural carrying capacity for an area. Granted, we do have more knowledge and tools to increase population but to offset that, we have a decrease in natural soil fertility and clean water.

      So I figure the positives and the negatives balance each other out which means the carrying capacity of the 1800's is probably in the ball park.

    6. Idaho Homesteader,
      when you say "1800's", I understand pre-transcontinental railroad 19th century Western Territories, not excellent 1890's (before the Empire-urge really kicked in, annexing Hawaii).
      Thought exercise: How many people lived in the Los Angeles Basin before the mega-water/imported-power projects? How many people will live there after those projects are "stopped"?

    7. Fun-filled fact: Los Angeles was overpopulated and struggling with water supplies in the 1920's-and that dynamic continued unabated. GET OUT NOW!!!! L.A. is a fragile spaceship surrounded by death, awaiting a malfunction.

  5. “Chuck-storing multiple years of wheat and not raising crops or livestock alieviates most issues with settling in the West-just have a Plan B.”

    Good point James, as I have recently discovered on my own. I used gallons of water just cleaning this years root crops of dirt. It would be even worse if you wanted to raise animals (I don't) because in addition to the water that they would require, there is the water used in cleaning during the butchering process.

    Bottom line: Desert homesteading with hauled water as you have already touched upon, is better planned on with a pre-purchased cache of cheap food already in place. There might be a compromise, such as crops that require less of a cleaning process, or fruit and nut trees that stay fairly clean and off the ground. But forget about raising animals or having a garden for the most part unless you are very close to a source of water.

    I suppose my plan B would be to learn the limited wild edibles of the high desert, or to grow something that can simply be picked and ate with minimal or no washing.

    There are other considerations as well, such as cooking in a way as to minimize clean up. Any method in which I can avoid having to use bowls, plates, or utensils, will be given favor over the more civilised methods.

    1. Living in the desert isn't rocket science-it's been perfected by many. The trick is researching their tricks. And not trying to duplicate our current practices.

  6. The only way to garden without adequate water is in the form of sprouts. It's better than nothing and adds a lot to the diet. This has been a good discussion thread. Thanks to all who 'spoke up'.

  7. Living in the desert isn't rocket science today with the grid up. But without the grid it takes on a whole new (actually old) lifestyle that is harsh and not forgiving like the grid-tied life we have today.


    I know people tend to think they can adapt and maybe a few can, but most can't and it will cause hardship.

    Today you can go over Donner Pass in December at 50 MPH, but it was a bit tougher back in 1846. Yes the road is there today and post-collapse and will continue to be there, but take the grid away (and it's gasoline and diesel fuel) and you are back to horses and or on foot and Donner Pass could become very dangerous again. The same thing will be the same for many parts of the West.

    It's easy to say how wonderful it is living there, but that is through modern grid-tied eyes.

    If it is so wonderful why was it not more populated till we had a nation-wide grid to make it so nice? Answer is because life there was indeed very harsh. And people back then were much more hardy then today and they didn't swarm to the west for a reason.



    It is best to go into a situation with both eyes open to all aspects of living in any given place.

    Water is the stuff of life and most of the West has been short on it for all of human history. This fact should not be taken lightly.

    For those of you that do live there, do you live there without the grid and all the wonders it brings? If so how do you grow food, feed animals with little water, how do you get water out of the ground without the grid when wells are hundreds of feet deep?

    Here in my location (Northern Ohio a few miles from The Great Lakes the water table is a few feet down and a sand point well and a hand pump can get you all the water you want, as can rain water.) water is so easy to come by it's usually a problem of abundance. Not really a bad place to grow crops and have farm animals.

    PS" I'm not trying to generate negative responses or argue with no point other then to argue, but more trying to have a debate about how harsh it could be post-grid and maybe it's not as wonderful in that light.

    1. Your points are all taken, believe me. I tend to dwell on the positive aspects of living here PA-namely, so few people that it is a secure staging area for raiding. The soil is complete crap, and there is no way to import conditioners on a steady basis. That is the bigger issue than water. Which is worse in some areas-Arizona, west Nevada-than where I'm at. Food is fundamental, no matter where you are. In the East, your problem isn't growing food but in defending your farmland. Also, while the West was a terrible place to be for the Indians, with the introduction of Old World grazing animals, it has more possibilities than previous. Not trying to refute your points, just pointing out I've thought on this subject before I decided to go here for good.
