POST PREPPING 2*
note: if you have Netflix, watch the zombie movie "Cargo". A much higher caliber than usual. Almost no zombies, mostly characterization and story. Minimal SJW PC. Made in Oz.
We started this series of articles asking the question of what happens post economic collapse but pre civilization collapse. An unfortunate period rarely discussed. It is either time condensed ( “EBT card payments stop and the Evil Negro’s riot and anarchy descends upon the land” ) or ignored altogether ( “a four hundred years stair step collapse sees everyone doing splendidly”. I’d like to add in here a very short comment. Go to Cassandra’s Legacy blog and see the May 21 2018 article, which to me reads as moving the Roman economic collapse back at least a century if not 150 years. You might want to rethink that stair step theory-but that could just be me ).
I don’t mean to imply that prepping for civilization collapse is a waste. It certainly is not, if only because we will get there fast enough ( yes, I know-in theory. I’m assuming you understand this is all about worse case scenario planning rather than me trying to sell you on a guarantee. I believe in my heart of hearts we will see a 99+% die-off soon, but I’m not so blind as to think I’m infallible ). I just want to get you to see that it isn’t about working for a paycheck one day and the very next we are shooting zombie bikers. In between is the period we are all going to hate. Preparations are no longer possible, we are forced to eat our stores and the government is still dry humping us.
Not to say any of us will enjoy the post civilization collapse, but there is that silver lining where at least we can solve some problems with a suitable level of force without the government incarcerating us since we threatened their perceived monopoly on said permission of force. Anarchy will be short lived. It always is. People historically choose losing freedom to losing property or their lives. The power vacuum will quickly be filled and with the communities blessing. Most of us look forward to a time during that power vacuum. It is unrealistic to assume that turns out well for us, but that is the fantasy.
If you look at survivalist or Libertarian literature, it is all about the individual having a monopoly on force. And as wonderful as that wish fulfillment is, it is just a fantasy. Nobody is going to grant you a monopoly on force because of a perceived natural right, and nobody who isn’t a true psychopath is going to assume power over your neck of the woods. No one else is capable of so casually disposing of lives in order to retain power. The White Knight benevolently ruling his subjects is just smoke up the asses of the ruled. And we all accept that reality even as we lie to ourselves ( “Trump will make America great again, not just his personal finances” ).
You can very well be living in a libertarian paradise. IF you can shoot anyone who threatens you and IF your area has no resources a much better armed foe covets. Just remember that Might Makes Right, not moral superiority or philosophy or desire. But for most of us, most of the time, the luxury of being able to solve our own problems by force are going to be nigh impossible. People want security at as low of a price as possible ( it is worth saving their own ass by ceding power to others so their fighting is done for them ) and those fighting for power need a monopoly on force so as to secure their reward for providing security.
The reality throughout history has been thus. If you don’t give twenty percent of your crop to your personal Mafia representative, you will instead give 100% and forfeit your life to the neighboring one. It is picking the lesser evil. It isn’t some luxury conjured up by a philosophy pretending otherwise. It is just reality. You want freedom, you opt out of living in a centralized agricultural paradigm. Be a nomad. Or belong to a tribe of mountaintop farmers. Or be a hermit if you can find a secluded area. Those are your realistic choices.
Fantasy is your sovereignty. Fact is you are ruled. You can puff out your chest and declare you are free, but reality is once you exercise a monopoly on force, wait and see how the State responds. Even in clear rule jurisdictions with defense against intruders, the court gets to decide if you used force according to THEIR rules. Not yours. They can jail you in clear contraction of their own laws and they do, all the time. Any illusions of your freedom are fantasy. Cries of “my money, I’m keeping it” can be proved as you walk into a store and try to pay with precious metal, or demand they deduct the hidden taxes. Cries of “I’m a free and sovereign individual” can be proved as you forbid armed state representatives from judging the legality of your self defense shooting.
The reality for after the economic collapse is probably going to be more of your meekly submitting obsequious compliance than your fierce resistance to unlawful acts with guns blazing. Not to say you can’t bury a midnight garden intruder. With a shovel and a bit of elbow grease you can make most problems disappear. And that just might happen, if you kill someone in the stress of an sudden attack. But given time to contemplate, most folks know better than to challenge the local authorities and their monopoly on force.
Pre-civilization collapse, you will most likely be as law abiding as you are now. The local Sheriffs office is more than likely the mayors bully boys and are enforcing extremely high property taxes, and most likely you go along as long as there is enough food left for your families survival. Few folks will fight without the threat of starvation ( or unless they can be tricked into thinking that not fighting will endanger their family. If you think about it, the WWII propaganda was ludicrous on its face. There was no way Japan or Germany posed a threat to our self sufficient nation surrounded by moats. What must have been understood was that by not fighting the war, malnutrition of the Great Depression would have continued. No welfare for you, in the contraction we started to enrich the elite, but if you become cannon fodder we’ll save your family. Rush Limbaugh and Glen Beck would have approved ).
The government ceding power to Blacks under threat of protests is nothing more than a choice. They choose to allow it as doing so is a hammer against the Whites. Be compliant with your subjugation or we will let slip the Negro’s from their ghettos. Do you doubt that this isn’t exactly what they are doing with the Muzzies over in Europe? Give in to being a debt slave and allowing the globalists to rule you, and we won’t let the Muslims knife and rape you, AS MUCH. Accept your forced withdrawal from the middle class as the bankers wipe out your only asset or the Darkies thin blue line will be withdrawn.
No one thinks in those terms of course. They just see a clear and present danger and agree to support the government for whatever protection they can get. Such as, I’ll support the Iraq occupation because I need affordable gas to live in the suburbs far away from The Black Menace. It doesn’t matter that the Blacks were an empowered enemy or the Muzzies were allowed in. That is how compliance is assured. And no one fights it because we are all well fed. Why do you assume the future will be any different? Continued tomorrow.
