careful what you wish for 2 of 3


CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR 2

Conventional wisdom says that all right thinking preppers are simple aghast at the prospect of the collapse actually happening.  Preps are insurance only and you don’t actually want to use them, right?  I’ve said the same thing myself on more than one occasion, but I’m pondering the possibility that is might just be one of those things you say to avoid both a conflict with others and to avoid thinking about it yourself.  You know the kinds of things I’m talking about.  Statements such as “women are supposed to be plump and I do enjoy the jiggle”, “Black people are not different”, “I’m not a savage, of course I don’t want to kill him/her”, “of course I wouldn’t advocate armed rebellion against the government” and others even darker still.  If you even come close to rooting for the collapse, people REALLY look at you strange.  Like, monkey molester or pedophile strange ( please note certain cultures are exempt by the PC’ers from these examples, such as sheep herders or Muslims-or did I repeat myself? ).

*

And yes, it even seems a little strange to bring up the subject.  This might be one of those things best left buried in the darker recesses of the Id ( if there even is an Id-probably, perhaps otherwise known as the Reptile Brain, but you have to admit that Freud was one stoned wackadoodle mother humper and who knows how much crazy cracker crap he just made up during bad trips ).  But, in my defense, you write about survivalism for over twenty years you either have to stop due to repetition, or find new and exiting topics.  I say, screw it, among polite company deny, deny and always deny, but among friends?  Can we admit perhaps wanting a Big Flush Do-Over isn’t such a bad thing?  We point out all that is wrong with our present society, yet refuse to take those issues out to their logical conclusions.  Do you think that the banker elite are going to stop at the last tree on the planet if there is still a profit to be made?  You want to save the planet?  Because, oh I don’t know, you friggin still need to live on it?  How else does a global empire stop denuding the environment except with a collapse?  And yes, I know, we are all supposed to love our fellow man.  But that is one of the easiest PC platitudes to call BS on.  Love them?  They hate me!  They would kill me given half the chance ( do you think that Bush Bitch gave two cares whether he gave me Ebola or not when he jumped on a plane to Dallas? ).  And you want me to care if all those useless mouth breathing oxygen wasters die off?  Only insofar as it effects me directly.  I’d be pretty butt hurt if the Amazon warehouse people and the postal carriers kicked it and I couldn’t buy any more books.  But I’d also get over it-I’m frantically stockpiling an unread library as we speak ( what, you think I can read five paper books a week?  Even as dedicated as I am, not too close ). 

*

Right there is the BIG Kahuna Forbidden Thought, not caring if 7 billion people die.  We are supposed to care, right?  I’d say that is the first roadblock towards having a productive conversation here.  You want me to mindlessly chatter the Political Correctness mantra of keeping love in my heart for one and all.  Last week here locally, a hit and run driver killed a pedestrian ( the official story is he was totally faultless but of course I don’t believe it ).  If it was a homeless guy, few would care.  Another would take his place.  But it was the CEO of the local credit union, so Mr. High And Mighty rates a huge deal after his passing.  The girls at work were making oohing and ahhing sounds about it, and I was having none of it.  He was a banker, right?  What are you getting weepy about?  Good riddance!  I don’t think my attitude went over really well, but after working with me all these years I’m sure they are used to it.  People only say they care because they are supposed to.  If they DO care, they are either ignorant or they are in denial of death in general.  Every child should have lots of pets, so they can numb themselves to death.  Do you really think you are doing your children a favor otherwise?  Because if you think about it, it isn’t necessarily callousness ( it is on my part, but I’m an ass ) but just healthy acceptance.  We all die.  Every one of us.  No double dice roll for immortality.  Stop embarrassing yourself feeling for ( non-family ) people that die.  Why?  Do you have that much time on your hands?  Are you that bored you must be a Drama Queen?  And honestly, even when family dies, you aren’t feeling bad for them or the other people effected by the passing, but only thinking of yourself.  What a selfish prick!  When people pretend to care about others dying, they are pretending to display compassion.  They are better than you, because they care more.  Double Pricks!  Condescending little twats.  I’ll take your compassion, roll it up into a little ball, and shove it up your ass!

*

Look at all the douche bags who carried on about Michael Jackson dying.  Really?  You are better than me because you celebrated the life of a child molester?  No, you vile prick, you are just feeling bad for yourself because one of your hero’s died and because you wouldn’t be able to listen to any more of the noise he created to pay for all the pedophile pay-offs.  You are a miserable excuse for a human being-you and your “hero”.  I’m supposed to feel bad a bunch of AIDS Patient Zero’s are dead in Orlando?  Why?  Isn’t that a better way to go than a slow painful death?  Didn’t the sheep molester do you a favor?  My only concern is the gun control and the surge in votes for Hilary ( with the caveat of course that the elections are rigged and the winner already picked ).   These people were not my family and they are not my tribe-why on earth am I required to care?  I have compassion-for a select few.  Otherwise, die tomorrow in a collapse, die in thirty years from old age, it is all the same to me.  More tomorrow.

  1. It has always made me wonder why some folks rate the emotional madness when they pass. Versus those which are croaking all around us daily, for everything from mayhem to old age. Yet we make special fuss for some.
    I can understand , ones which as you say are tribe James.
    Or ones we love....
    All others no concern...not my bidness :-)
    Totally agree on that and for the absolute necessity to reduce population or go extinct.

    1. Case in point on Big Fuss On Passing: Every time a David Bowie song plays on the radio now, he is "the late, GREAT...". Why? We have his music recorded and it has been, what, thirty years since he recorded anything. Why such a fuss? People confuse me.

  2. Provocative post. Makes me think of the estimates of the planet's sustainable human population I read here and there. Even if off by 50%, it begs the question how we get from here to there. One way or another it involves a lot of death.

    1. Of course, with a two hundred year slow collapse ahead, no extra death is needed. So we can all feel groovy [ sarcasm alert ]

  3. When its all males(at least the males in my crowd)compassion never enters the conversation, its only when the females show up it gets weepy.

  4. I always get a chuckle from the so called *conservatives* openly shedding crocodile tear verbage about the murdered fags in Orlando. Have they no shame?

    I wish all adults would behave like grown ups, or be wiped from the face of the earth.

  5. Looking at this issue through a selfish vein I think it's two-edged sword. On the one hand, the collapse of civilization means a reset and a final escape from the socialist PC grind. Common sense can reign supreme once again. On the other hand that also means the loss of a pretty good lifestyle. As much as we bemoan the fact that everyone takes for granted how well we live compared to our historical counterparts, those of us who have actually taken the time to reflect on what life would be like if we were thrust back into frontier living are really grateful. Which way we lean (collapse now or continued comfort) changes like the wind. Have a bad day at work or illogical argument from a liberal? BRING ON THE DEATH! Sitting on the couch surfing the net in the A/C with a cold drink? Maybe we could stretch this unsustainable life out just a little longer.

  6. Jim - you stretch the limits of what is socially acceptable to assert...but it's hard to fault your arguments. You've written several gems.

    "If you even come close to rooting for the collapse, people REALLY look at you strange. Like monkey molester or pedophile strange..."

    How true! I've found that the closest you can get without having eyes rolled on you, is to say, "Hey, you don't have to believe me...google phosphates. They're finite and without artificial fertiliser, there's no industrial agriculture."

    "Can we admit perhaps wanting a Big Flush Do-Over isn't such a bad thing? We point out all that is wrong with our present society, yet refuse to take those issues to their logical conclusions."

    Not wanting a collapse is understandable but it sesm to me that that argument rests on two points. Firstly, that there will then be unimaginable suffering. Secondly, that our society can be reformed. I don't hink that reform is possible anymore. My point of reference is Germany, after the war. I've spoken to people (whose parents had jobs) who went to bed hungry. The rations were minimal and it was up to you to improvise. Those too weak, or sick or not clever enough, perished, tragically. Thus though, the deck of cards were re-mixed and some folks were able to make something of themselves, who may not have the chance beforehand.

    "Stop embarrassing yourself feeling for (non-family) people that die."

    Some blogger wrote something similar. That watching the news is wrong, in that: mudslides burying a favela in Brazil, or a ferry disaster in the Phillipines, or some obscenity of a terrorist bombing just needlessly depresses you...unless you know someone involved.

    Anyway, top post - keep up the good work!

    1. If I keep pushing those limits, and keep repeating my points, I'm trusting enough folks retain something of it and use it to help themselves. I don't ask much-just eternal fame for my writing.

  7. Compassion starts with yourself. You care what happens to you. Then it moves outward. You care what happens to your children and spouse (duh- evolution ensures that) then you care what happens to you clan and tribe. The weeping over the loss of a famous person is because people are trying to pretend they are in the same tribe as that person. They aren't (usually) and the pretense is usually just that- but it makes most people feel better.
    Being seen as a member of the local tribe(s) is one of the best defenses against the local tribe(s) - after all they don't want to have to care that you got hurt/killed.

    1. The need for a tribe is built in-too bad so many manipulate that against us. But they are on the LampPost List anyway.

    2. I think the need for a clan (aka extended family or friends in the place of those relatives) is built in, I am more doubtful about the need for tribe - tribe is about the equivalent of small village and is economically necessary but I don't think it is emotionally necessary. But then I have strong hermit tendencies and would be happy to live out the rest of my life with only my close family, a couple of close friends in the place of the extended family, and a big ol' pile of books and games (and of course enough food water and shelter to be comfortable.)

    3. Tribal is food and military necessary, I would think.

  8. Banksters want all the worker bees to believe they will live forever and strive to make it to retirement. Keep us on the hamster wheel as long as possible before we croak. I try to live as best I can while spending as little time on the wheel as I can get away with. No amount of fiat money will save you when the bottom falls out. Some food and no mortgage might help for a while if you have good health. Even when I am on the wheel I try to make it work for me as much as possible, like buying preps and trash picking on the clock. I make work work for me.

    1. I always loved Taking A Dump On Company Time, but alas it rarely works out too well. Either working retail alone or, currently, I wouldn't touch the toilet seats the homeless use with YOUR ass. And that is even just after double cleaning them ( first spray with vinegar then scrubbing with soapy water ).

  9. Good job James. It's easy to see when you hit upon the proper ingredients of an article, as it always reflects in the comments section. I was going to add more then the below, but much of what I was going to add would only be a rehash of what the others had already posted.


    “I’m supposed to feel bad a bunch of AIDS Patient Zero’s are dead in Orlando? Why? Isn’t that a better way to go than a slow painful death? Didn’t the sheep molester do you a favor?”


    I sort of have a different take on this story James, aside from the one that the mainstream media is trying to present, and that is:

    He was just another disturbed fag, that murdered a bunch of other fags, end of story.

    Initial accounts indicated that this guy was barely religious, and a non-practicing Muslim, and from there he sort of morphed into a full fledged jihadi Isis worshiper. In true Saul Alinsky fashion, I don't think that the PTB would ever allow such events to go to waste, as their purpose is twofold: more gun control, and refueling the fires of support for continued Middle Eastern conflicts.

    While it's a tragic event, mostly for the suffering family members, I'm not going to lie and pretend that I'm broken up about it as I would be if it were a Sunday school full of children.

    1. I kind of use the comments section as a gauge of an articles worthiness, myself.

  10. Ultimately, I don't see anything wrong with being a "selfish prick". Most people are but they just refuse to admit it. By not owning it, you allow yourself to be manipulated by guilt.

    I find the older I get, the less I'm willing to put myself out there for others. Sure if I can help you in passing with no skin off my back, I'll do it----maybe. But go out of my way for someone-----not so much anymore.

    So I guess that makes me selfish. But you know what, I...Don't...Care.

    Since I've adopted this attitude,

    I feel less stress. (Your problems are no longer my problems.)

    Less guilt. (I didn't make your mess so don't blame me.)

    Have more free time. (Less time having to bail others out.)

    and have better quality friends. (Takers realize pretty fast that I'm not going to give them anything so they disappear fast.)

    My only mistake is not adopting this attitude years ago.

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.
