WHY NOT STEWPOT?
Oh, sure, it’s all fun and games and unicorn glitter when there’s fun stuff to do like make goats cheese and eat amazingly fresh veggies ( I’m not against vegetables themselves as I am against nasty old or cooked ones ) right out of the garden and go picking blackberries in the woods and shoot bowling pins for target practice. It’s quite a different story when you are cold and hungry and all there is to eat is wheat berries and even for that slop the howling mob of famine victims outside your gates would gladly beat your head in with a rock and there is an outbreak of some weird disease from folks wiping their ass in the river for lack of toilet paper and the two rival former drug dealers are cooperating and gathering up more press gangs to build fortifications and you could resist them with the last box of cartridges you own but the last fool that did that had an army surround his place and they just waited him out, lobbing rocks by trebuchet to batter down his rain gutters and his greenhouse. In short, far from being the happy place fantasyland envisioned as you were reading up on Yuppie Survivalist Websites, post-apocalypse reality really friggin sucks. Do you honest injun really want to survive a real life collapse ( as opposed to the intellectual exercise it is now )?
I’ve talked before about how Yuppie Survivalists with all the high cost high maintenance high tech crap and no long term serious food storage are really just planning “suicide by apocalypse”. They have that huge arsenal so they can go out in a cool fiery death, living the Industrial Age Oil Era lifestyle until the very last second of their pathetic lives. If living beyond middle class luxury is indeed a fate worse than death, an obvious assumption for 99% of the population to include all the recent arrivals from Third World crapholes because no one is willingly caught dead with any other kind of living arrangement, then dying during the collapse seems reasonable. Why do the rest of us want to live afterwards? I can’t speak for others, and I won’t dwell on all the philosophical aspects or the primal drives we have and just assume all of us actually can and will make a live or die decision now by our actions ( choosing to prep for only short term and assuming the oil reserves fill back up faster than fracking can deplete them and thinking the federal government can legislate resources back into existence and all those other fantasies might seem like survivalism but they are just another way of dying if things get TOO uncomfortable ). I will say that for myself, while I might not be over eager to see too great of a fall in my living arrangements, will nonetheless greet the collapse with open arms and enjoy it to the best of my ability. I want, I NEED, to extract vengeance upon the greater part of humanity. I hate most people for a very good reason. I won’t get into that now- we are almost out of time. Suffice it to say I’m looking forward to surviving, if possible, so I can close out my life in a satisfying orgy of smiting. To me, a collapse is not to be feared. I’ll be making very good use of an otherwise bad situation. Making lemons out of lemonade. If you can’t foresee why you’d want to survive, I’d be happy to buy your supplies at a deep discount. Seriously, consider the question beyond baser human conditioning.
