HOME BIAS 2
Controlling the population of a once free and unregulated Republic was a long drawn out process. A lot of the “new” trends we bemoan such as one citizen “dropping a dime” on another harkens back to WWI. Habeas Corpus was suspended in the War Of Yankee Imperialism. As was jailing dissenters of the ruling regime. Concentration camps are in the future, but were practiced in the past ( Japanese Americans in WWII ). The difference is not political freedoms-those were dead 150 years ago. The difference is in our economic bondage. 1913 was the year the Federal Reserve bank was born amid a miscarriage of justice spawning an un-Constitutional afterbirth reeking of sulfur from the lower bowels of Hell. We might have lost our Republic in 1865, but we lost our Freeman status 48 years later. We became outright serfs when FDR took away our gold and gave us Greenbacks in exchange, at a 40% loss immediately and a 100%+ in succeeding years through inflation. Today, we dance to the tune of our masters through their money and our substance, livelihood and existence is at their whim. We cling to the only thing we think we have left to give us freedom, our homes, and that delusion pushes untold riches into the coffers of our owners and operators.
It is incalculable how much profit is in each city or suburban lot with home. The infrastructure was built either a hundred years ago with much cheaper material and labor, or put in new today at the cheapest possible way which can’t possibly last a hundred years ( when the city adds on $20k in fees and taxes to a newly built lot, EACH lot, they are barely putting a fraction of that into hooking up to their grid feeder junction- to that junction is the job of the contractor who will add THAT cost to the home additionally- but merely collecting a bribe to allow the very existence of the unit ). At no cost to them- but rather a handsome profit to begin with- each government level then is handsomely rewarded for just being there. They get a huge chunk of change from each home in property taxes. Far more than an occasional police pass-by and once every ten year pothole patch justifies. But for every cop or firefighter added to the payroll for each addition to the population, a pension fund windfall goes to the bankers ( who are already benefiting from loaning money out of thin air to the tune of a mortgage at least ten times what the home should cost ). The city “invests” it to get enough return to pay far more money out than was ever collected ( another payoff of the Union “cost” to protect the means of production ). A banker invents money to loan to the government which uses that to bribe potential saboteurs, paying interest on the loan, then the government recoups its cost through homeownership. The home owner pays to bribe the potential mob, then pays the cops to keep them under control, then pays the bankers for the privilege of it all. And it isn’t even about greedy bankers but about nesters insisting on a home that makes it all possible. But anymore, owning a land and a home no longer even pays. We can’t grow our own food. Remaining in one place is no longer justified by survival, but is now more just the location of our cell we are allowed out of each morning to go to our slavery. More next time.

Not really self sufficient, he stole from others to survive, and never planned farther ahead than the coming winter. But he did manage to avoid almost all human contact for decades. Had he been a prepper instead - hunting and gathering from the land, stockpiling for longer than a winter, etc. He might well have never been caught and passed away peacefully in the woods he enjoyed so much.Delete
...'True hermits, according to Chris, do not write books, do not have friends, and do not answer questions. I asked why he didn't at least keep a journal in the woods. Chris scoffed. "I expected to die out there. Who would read my journal? You? I'd rather take it to my grave." The only reason he was talking to me now, he said, is because he was locked in jail and needed practice interacting with others.Delete
"But you must have thought about things," I said. "About your life, about the human condition."
Chris became surprisingly introspective. "I did examine myself," he said. "Solitude did increase my perception. But here's the tricky thing—when I applied my increased perception to myself, I lost my identity. With no audience, no one to perform for, I was just there. There was no need to define myself; I became irrelevant. The moon was the minute hand, the seasons the hour hand. I didn't even have a name. I never felt lonely. To put it romantically: I was completely free."...'

If all you bastards would just die off perhaps I could be free.Delete
You are right about the majority of places- But move rural enough those very complications and chains start to fall away. NEVER buy land inside city limits. Avoid land just outside. Avoid land on any clear expansion route (say, along a highway). Get land that has little to no zoning. Yes you probably have to move to where the good paying jobs are ones like lumberjack and oil rig worker. BUT those are also the places that will be among the last to collapse (resource extraction will continue until the resource is gone or the people who need it are dead). In Elko County Nevada you can sign an Owner Builder Occupant affidavit and not have to have much if any building inspections and few zoning rules. Where I live, outside city limits, there are NO residential building codes- but then there is almost nothing like a road either.ReplyDelete
They do make it easier to haul supplies (as do the motor vehicles that they support). They also make it easier to find your homestead. I think there is a happy medium (gravel, intermittently maintained at best going nowhere there isn't a better route to). Once you are all set up and have enough supplies they can be abandoned to be overgrown and forgotten.Delete
As i get older i relize that at a certain age we all are just useless mouthbreathers. The fact that we are bi-pedal,have opposable thumbs and a superior intellect is the reason we dont expire as we should.The reason i say this is prepping after a certain age should be for the short term as the older preppers should be first in the firing line of the coming revolution.ReplyDelete
Or the first to get a disease. Or the first to be triaged when food gets short. Or the first to suicide to give resources to the young. I love myself, but hold no illusions as to my importance to others come the collapse. I'll live long enough to kill some of the bastards and toast to the end, and I'll be happy.Delete
Now thats the propper attitude!Delete
