I GOT YOUR SOLUTION HANGING 2
So, humans are basically wired to kill off competition to resources by being the first to utilize those resources to gain military dominance. One strategy being to outbreed the other tribe. One wonders if that is the second half of the Female Promiscuity puzzle ( the first more important half being partner retention for long term child rearing ), but I shan’t sidetrack on that one. Long term, this works because if you have a 10% numbers advantage, you wipe out the enemy and then gain the total 150% resource base ( if it was a 200% base, both your tribes could coexist, but being less means someone has to die so one tribe can have their 100%, plus enough to keep the military advantage. Preppers please note. We are in a LESS than 100% per population unit resource base which guarantees conflict. Also note, we suck much more than you think militarily ). Until you don’t because you ALWAYS overpopulate and outstrip the resources. It can be NO OTHER WAY!!!! Our hardwired behavior dictates it, just as it does for every other animal species. It doesn’t matter how opposed to that you are intellectually, IN PRACTICE that is how the victors act.
And by the way, this is how capitalism pretty much works. The companies who steal the resources by murdering the original owners and can produce products from those resources the cheapest win the game of victory or dominance. Capitalism proponents like to pretend there is some Adam Smith/Ayn Rand love fest going on where everyone is only being benevolently selfish, but at base it is all about resource control just like the tribes that survive. So if you are all like, gross dude, when it comes to anything smacking on socialism you are unknowingly proving this point, that killing off the competition for resources is the NATURAL order of the universe. Not that capitalism is natural economically, tribal non-profit is, but that in economics capitalism is the closest to our natural opportunistic predator behavior.
So any “solution” which goes contrary to human nature is not a solution in practice but mental masturbation. You can’t preface solutions with “if we change our nature, we can…”. It doesn’t work like that. That is like those moronic Politically Correct douche bags insisting the human species physical differences don’t exist despite evidence to the contrary you witness every day ( “honey, can you open this jar for me? Take out the trash? Move this heavy ass pile of lumber?” ). But remember what I said about systematic solutions verses individual ones? Systematic problems always have individual solutions. NOT social or group ones. When you react individually there is no ulterior profit motives or dominance issues screwing up the best course of action. Even something more than an individual solution is problematic. If your family is acting democratically, you’ve just introduced group dynamics to the solution seeking process. Only a benevolent dictatorship works for the family in this case. And a “survival group”? Just a smaller group, but still NOT in the interest of the individuals.
Of course, individual concerns must subordinate to group needs, but that presupposes that the group has your welfare in mind as the best solution to its welfare. In a tribal structure where warriors are the primary male occupation ( of course food production/procurement is a important secondary, but ideally that should enhance the primary skill set to be the most effective blend ), we naturally bond and cooperate and nobody sacrifices without reward. In a less tribal structure, the individual welfare becomes secondary and you no longer have an advantage of belonging to a group. And a Survival Group transcends tribal structure. Think about it. Nobody acts tribal economically, but more capitalistically. There is private property, to begin with, and tribal structure is equalitarian. Private property is much more loosely defined whereas under capitalism it is far more rigid. Right there is a basis of a power structure. And you can’t run a healthy tribal system that way. Not a functional natural cooperative system. You want to become cannon fodder? Join a property based survival group.
Well, so much for that huge detour. Let’s attempt to return to individual solutions. This is pretty easy, isn’t it? That is what lifeboat survivalism is all about. You place all your energy and resources into saving yourself and family as the world crashes all around you. Why would you even want to get distracted by fantasy solutions you can’t realistically adapt? Group solutions are just Fallacy Of The Commons impossible. The “solution” to most problems is just recognizing our human nature. Screw you, I’ve got mine. “Big Solutions” are just you pretending that Big Government is still a viable group. By pretending your paymaster can still deliver your checks, you pretend the end is not nigh. Big Solutions are just denial the system is imploding. Big implies Big Oil and Big Finance can still save your ass and keep you wallowing in luxuries like Big Macs and central heat. There are no solutions past your own individual ones. Rawles Survivalism, its complete reliance on Big Finance and Big Trade to keep the consumables coming to continue the Middle Class lifestyle pretends to embrace lifeboat Survivalism but places far too much reliance on a mythical Resupply Ship to make it work. It is only you, now while you supply yourself from Big Oil, and in the future when there is no more supply at all ever.
Localize, completely. Big Solutions are centralized, not decentralized, and you MUST decentralize as completely as you can NOW, and completely LATER. There are your solutions, real ones. Individualism and decentralization. Any other solution is just an attempt at parting some fool with his money, or the stark raving mad babblings of an uneducated illogical thinker. I understand few are as perfect as me, so I’m certainly not judging. You can’t help it if you suck, but pardon me if I point it out.

I’ll waive this fee if you order three or more books at one time ). My e-mail is: email@example.com that is three ZERO three, not three oh three.
