Who will win the blog wars, or will it be a mere Pyrrhic victory, the corpses littering the ground in equal numbers as the Internet powers down along with civilization?  Look, we all know everything is doomed.  Our cities, which rely on trade and/or imperial power ( both reliant on surplus energy ), our imported oil which depends on the PetroDollar which is already breaking apart and has been and will continue to until it doesn’t because It‘s Done.  Our population numbers, which need oil inputs to be fed.  Our economies, which is really just our central bank inflating to weakly simulate activity, are already subsidizing fracking oil production which is both a money loser and a net energy loser, who cannot indefinitely extend and pretend.  You know that crap always ends badly, else why aren’t Zimbabwe Dollars still viable?  The day is not too far away when Greenbacks will join Confederate currency as spendable currency.  You think gold will save you?  How is retail consumer gold going to keep up overseas trade when the dollar is only backed by DC promises?

*

We all know it is going to end badly, and some of us actually don’t pretend it isn’t going to happen in our lifetime.  Not just an economic collapse but a civilization one.  Ah, but the journey getting there is going to be interesting.  Today I focus on the prepper/survivalist community verses me, and who will win.  Short answer, me.  Hump all of you Yuppie Scum asswhores all double dog piling on to the Ponzi scheme of catering to the rich who don’t mind buying their way to all solutions.  Yuppie Scum survivalist guru’s, of which there are a half dozen contenders to the title with dozens more hopeful wanna-be’s riding their coattails, are rather easy to find.  Every survival blog out there copy’s Rawles, who copied Ruff and others from that era.  The mantra goes as such, with minor variations to differentiate:  I love God so he loves me and so money comes my way to buy semi-automatic weapons, freeze dried foods and bug-out vehicles.  If God doesn’t love you, you are poor and don’t deserve to live and why don’t you do us all a favor prior to the collapse and die already since the poor suck.  If we want someone to serve us fries we’ll get some more Mexicans up here.  Oh, and you must support Israel for no other reason than it proves we are an imperial power because God loves the US.

*

So, money matters and you, poor prepper, do not.  They ALL teach the same crap of buying your way to surviving.  They all worship the imperial carbine, the better to not hit anyone due to jamming and if you do it won’t kill them due to it being a rimfire round.  Since imperial troopers carry them, they must be neato ( never mind the troops are there to recon for artillery strikes, which causes most casualties, nor that their using a submachinegun is dangerous for them )!  Since freeze dried foods cost a lot in part due to advertising costs, they MUST be the food choice of all imperial carbine toting Christian Militia members since they pay off the guru.  Nobody teaches Redneck Survival, poor peasant prepping.  It is all about money.  Nobody survives without money, granted, but when you need enough to pay the property tax on an Idaho McMansion and the SUV you take to Costco and the Bulk Bullet Gun Store, money becomes the driving force in philosophy.  God doesn’t protect you against avarice and gluttony.  That is your devil talking, whispering sweet nothings in your ear about Owning The Night, Suppressive Fire, Store What You Eat, Thrive Not Survive and other homilies. 

*

But forget screwing over the poor.  Far worse, you are looking at a flawed business model.  If you target the rich, and the rich are getting thin on the ground due to economic contraction, and despite all your focus on fracking oil extending our imperial power another century, which is just a fantasy denying reality ( and which fools folks into thinking no real collapse will occur ), then you have no more customers left to keep you in the lifestyle you deserve.  Hence the Ponzi scheme reference.  Dude, it is all demographics.  I target the poor, everyone else targets the rich.  The rich are becoming less and less of the population while the number of poor are growing like weeds.  Who is the better group to sell to?  Note of course that I never “targeted” a group but just wrote as I lived and attracted a following.  But from a solely business viewpoint you speak of targeted audiences.  And Yuppie Scum Survival Guru’s are a business.  They talk a good game, and quote the bible like it was Buffet’s quarterly stockholders report, but actions speak louder than blog entries.  Not all businesses are equally benign.  Selling cigarettes provides a need, as does selling FLIR scopes, but neither of which are very good for the end user in the long term ( the cost of a FLIR, a device too expensive regardless of its supposed benefits, is far better spent on far better and useful gear that actually keeps you alive ).

*

So, my customer base grows as everyone else’s shrinks.  I’m the winner, bitches, eventually.  I can hold my head high as I cheat nobody, not in actual practice hawking dangerous advice, nor in spirit as I give away far better advice and ask recompense only as the reader is able.  And your money doesn’t buy my preps, just my continued efforts at spreading the word.  Today, you find churches paying preachers a salary rather than just room and board as it used to be.  Your donations are not helping the poor then, are they?  And today survival guru’s just preach that only the rich are worthy and only the worthy can support them.  What church would you rather join?  The one where the man spreading the word of God lives in a nice house and drives a nice car and clothes a trophy wife, or one whose preacher lives a vow of poverty and helps the community?  Did he just compare himself to a holy worker?  Oh No He Didn’t!  Sorry, I can’t hear you over my celebration of myself.

  1. You're absolutely spot on, and although I couldn't possibly reach your level of Wisdom and Hairness i'd like to contribute humbly (and for that I am apologizing profusely).

    Regarding the "Yuppie Scum" suburban middle-class-wanabee preppers, we could use McDojos as a comparison. Some go to the McDojos and really believe the narrative of how they're super ninjas now.

    That said, since we should never underestimate anybody because the could be us, in a sense, a lot of McDojos dwellers are still aware that their attendance is remedial, and should they ever cross the path of ghetto types (who never went to any martial arts training except watching crummy movies) they know all this is for naught. Their attendance to Karate Lessons is something they can afford in terms or time and mindset.

    The same goes for prepping. Poor people's prepping is a matter of subsituting the money we don't have with time.

    There are Yuppie Scum preppers who believe they're super survivors, and then there are people trapped in mortgages & finance problems, wife problems, kid problems, work problem, car problems etc.

    It's too late for them to fix the real issues. All they can do is spend some time on the net and read ready-to-think articles from the Offical Blogs. In doing so, they're already ahead of over 90% of the people in their social class.

    I believe that for anybody involved, survivalism is a form of escapism. Once in a while, you got to stop daydreaming and get things done, but this incentive is more frequent when you chose to live a life closer to survival, whereas people trapped in a physical and mental suburbia will never do anything beyond their skillset of reading magazines and buying stuff upon the recommendations & ads they find there.

    1. Well said, and you contribute a lot. Just not from a hair standpoint. :)

  2. Right again lord bison, the meek shall inherit the earth. The homeless or underemployed guy who knows how to scratch dirt with the chickens to get by is the one who will survive. He already knows how to operate on the fringes of society without power, water, endless buffet of food, and is not scared by changes in the weather. Once the rules of society changes it will be green light for the monkey wrench gang to take over. A redoubt won't save their ass ass they will need community and their higher than thou has cast themselves out as different-better than the numerically more "other people"

    1. I understand the point you are making, and making well, but just to split hairs, the homeless are a terrible analogy. 95% of them are clueless and useless, only there as the free goodies are available, a life chosen for the bliss of alcohol and drug numbness ( as those "helping" them receive in inordinately high level of compensation ). The 5% are a Great Depression era redoux, as you describe above. Sorry, I'm really soured on the Homeless Industry after a decade.

    2. I agree that most of the homeless aren't a particularly great example of the low economic end spectrum that will the necessary survival experience. Heck they pretty much DONT survive without help. But the poor persons living next to the ghetto without a half dozen roommates, the people surviving off minimum part time wage and keeping fed clothed and mostly sheltered by their own efforts. Those people live like most of us are going to have to as the collapse accelerates.

    3. The difference being they don't have the income or inclination to stockpile for what's at the end of that road.

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.
