How does one go about protecting his territorial resources without shooting innocents? Can you? My idiot neighbors ( I’m assuming I’ve moved back to the BPOD from town ) refused to leave after the town economically contracted and now they have all their little brown babies harvesting firewood ( get it? Harvesting. John Deere. They are called Johnny Dear’s, harvesters ). Now, let’s be honest. It isn’t mine, nor is it theirs. I consider it mine, and they consider it theirs, both from the viewpoint of need. You know, that communist “to each according to his needs”. The only way to settle this contest is through force.
A lot of preppers seem to be libertarians. The two are a good fit. To be free from government you need to be more self reliant, plus, you know better than anyone how evil government is and how stupid they are. If you don’t seek independence they will make you suffer. You start with guns and precious metals and then just a bit of food, just in case, and before you know it you are an actual prepper. In my case, I was a survivalist first and a libertarian second, which thankfully allowed me to see the flaws in that political system. As in, it flies in the face of biology.
The problem is that libertarianism and anarchy are blind to the need for naked aggression. They do not see how most relationships MUST have a level of inequality and force ( please don’t try to preach to me how wrong I am by proving so with your philosophical teachings. I’m well versed in them. And while sympathetic, I understand they are STILL not feasible. I remain an anarchist philosophically but temper its practice with reality ). A libertarian will go on and on about how those that mix labor with resources are the rightful owner and have a natural right to defend such. And they are in fact correct. Yet, back in reality land ( it was a nice vacation in the Land ‘O Unicorn Glittery Farts, I sent a postcard ), in PRACTICE this is not possible.
I own an acre lot. My neighbor owns an acre lot. In between us and surrounding us are acres and acres of owned but unoccupied lots. Who gets the resource on those lots? The guy who runs off all the other owners. Think about it for a second. If you both play by Libertarian Rules, respecting each others private property, you will both end up without enough resources. Someone will quickly find an excuse to go to war with the other, on ANY pretext, even an excuse that would horrify a private sector libertarian society arbitration specialist, and many people die. That is REALITY as compared to PHILOSOPHY.
The only way to make things work in a limited resource environment is to run off others from land that isn’t yours. Land that you just decided to take by force. That is how humans survive. As I said, I love libertarianism. But it is a product of its time, an age of carbon fuel surplus ( just as capitalism was a management system of the same era ). Surplus is not the normal human condition. Scarcity is. Might Is Right is the domineering system that deals with scarcity. All libertarians are going to deny this and hate me. So be it. Return to your favorite author and her favorite quote about ignoring reality.
If kids come on to “my” land and try to harvest “my” wood supply, what do I do? Kill them? Well, first, why haven’t I already ambushed their father as he was going to the privy at 5 AM? Why is he still alive? He poses the biggest threat. Is it because all the surrounding areas are full of related individuals and they will cooperate against you? Sure, you can move. Now, how do you do that? How do you move that two tons of wheat, unmolested? You can’t move, and you can’t stay because there won’t be any wood left for you.
And your fate is sealed, being the “outsider” here. You are the White Oppressor whose grand pappy’s pappy stole their land. If you don’t fight, you die. They might not shoot you, but they will surround you and leave no resources for you. And as soon as one of their own “accidentally” moves on to your lot to get your wood, if you harm him they all have the justification they need to lynch you. If you don’t hurt them but capture him, demanding compensation for the theft attempt, you are STILL the bad guy. You caused PTS or some damn thing. Mexican Mamma will be sure to rile up the men folk against you.
If you do nothing, they keep trespassing and taking. Long term, your only viable solution is to NOT have neighbors ( unless of your own tribe ). To make that happen, you are going to need to shoot your neighbors. Hopefully you only need to shoot the adult males, but you cannot guarantee the older boys or the females won’t be a threat. In theory, the best tactic would be to fire their home, pick off the emerging armed folks and force the remainder to leave. This brings us to them attacking you at your place, to have shelter and food, so you better have a plan for that.
Are you beginning to see how advantageous being a hermit is? How if you have a non-tribe member neighbor you could easily be screwed? Just by their presence, they threaten you. You have to bribe them to be one of your tribe, or fear them attacking you for resources, or eliminate them as a threat immediately. We all sort of plan for an existence AFTER our area is secure, but we rarely look at how that has to happen. Innocents must die so you do not. And it isn’t just because of firewood. It could be any resource. AND, even if you don’t want to do this, if you don’t, your neighbor just might turn the tables on you.
This is the reality of the collapse, not some libertarian wet dream of isolated farmers NOT molesting one another. Think of it as a city, using imminent domain to expand their business zoning limits to gain tax base. A few eggs need to be broken to make that omelet. Non-violent in this case, but it did involve force. You could graphically expel one family and hope the others flee in anticipation, Mongol city siege style, to minimize casualties ( well, really, murders, but remember you get to justify your bad behavior as a needy communist ). But to survive, and ensure your continued survival, you must kill others to form your territory. Then continue killing trespassers.
If you don’t like the above scenario, you haven’t set up your preparations very well. You are too close to people. And, please remember, this is in territory where NON tribal members dwell. If all your neighbors are stocked and part of your tribe, this all doesn’t apply. Good luck being in that situation.

Excellent posting Jim. This is an anology to my own urban/surburban neighbohood. They may smile and wave friendly now but will ambush you and loot out your property like carrion on downed animals. Those vacant lots will have kalicrats in s.u.v.s with yuppie trailers showing up, encamp and quickly make a nuisance of themselves. Minions should not be mistaken with notions of civil order, friendly neighbors, etc. Non tribe members that are in competition for resources/space, or are in envy of you or your gear must be dealt with. Sooner the better. Try to keep hands clean, operate stealthly-avoid various blowbacks. Remember earlier postings, ALL non tribal members are enemy combatants. You cannot chance reprisals or vendettas by being all christian and not dealing with the women or children as well. This is not a luxury of choices to be exercised at discretion by minions, it is necessities of reality.ReplyDelete
I know, right? Yucky reality!Delete
Off topic, but I was able to track down the link to that federal prosecutor that was assassinated that I posted about in an earlier post. The other minion that chimed in was right, and it was a Makarov pistol. The feds tracked down 3500 barrels that had been sold to owners and dealers, in hopes that a match would come up. They had one suspect, but he wasn’t charged, which tells you that they had nothing (This was some years back now). Good job!ReplyDelete
Yes, it should be rather obvious that any gun used in such a crime cannot have any paper trail at all associated with it or its ammo (we’re talking back alley, cash sale, from a dude you’ve never seen before, or will again) or better yet, a homebuilt job that doesn’t leave “fingerprints” and doesn’t throw casings about. Oh, and try to stick with common calibers as well.
Also, not suggesting that anyone should ever do such a thing. But I’d understand :D
Gun used to kill prosecutor is focus of massive search (Thomas Wales case)
We can't have one of our own approved darlings killed, throw unlimited resources at finding the terrorist! Oops, we're idiots. Should have swept it under the rug rather than give others hope.Delete
Well, another option is to paint yourself up like something out of Bravehart as you do your chores about the place.ReplyDelete

You could take it one step further and disguise yourself as Wez from the road warrior. Then everyone around you would be watching their ass :D
Just watch out for feral kids with steel boomerangs, because they will be your biggest enemy! 😀
I would but, you know, too cold up here :)Delete
W2-okay, Finnish would explain why they are babbling in tongues. Pretty far away from most other European languages.Delete
First and foremost, one needs get to know those immediately surrounding you. This way you will have somewhat of an idea whom you're dealing with. Their abilities and logistics etc.ReplyDelete
Fortify the BPOD , to allow hunkering down. Have firing positions ready to go for your OP. If your BPOD cannot withstand small arms fire...then you ain't got a chance in hell.
Have tribe enough for 24/7 watch.
Have a minimum two months supply on hand of water.
I really don't see it getting to be an issue for sagebrush gathering. You should have stockpiles of means for fuel to cook and heat the BPOD HIDDEN ON SITE.
Your competition will have starved long before you should need leave the BPOD local and defensive cover.
I believe the first two months will balance that scale out for the unprepared.
Key is not having to leave your cover and defence.
ROE changes after WROL occurs. Until that happens, all rule of law applies. Better to remain deep until this happens, or face dire consequences...
Good perspective. Excellent. Thank you.Delete
That sort of is my plan. I know I am no Rambo and would prefer hiding until the die off is over. Then you can deal with what is left. Defensive positions are a given.Delete
I think that even libertarianism relies on at least a small functioning government in order to enforce basic law and private property rights. Of the major parties, I would consider myself being the closest to a libertarian. I am odds with them on a few issues though. Their open borders philosophy is a terrible idea, as we all know. Most of them also seem to be awfully LGBTXQYZ friendly as well, which ironically to me, is quite the opposite of the small government that they claim to embrace. Because after all, no healthy society would ever support such unnatural philosophies (another of which is feminism) short of a major indoctrination campaign, followed by the courts forcing acceptance on the few holdouts (anyone else here remember how in the 80’s, that even the liberals of the time poked fun at fags?)ReplyDelete
“Are you beginning to see how advantageous being a hermit is?”
Sure do. And unless one has the resources to build their own medieval style fortress (Think stone, high walls, and fireproof) the more and more that I think that the lone wolf strategy (cache dependent) is the way to go. I suppose I’ll submit my guest article on that topic soon.
Please submit article. Six and seven days from now I'll have an article "living in a cave", which basically gives just another vandal proof shelter idea if you have to bug out ( short distance ) because you can't hermitage. Which got me wanting to tackle the Hermit Survival book again. I'd be interested in your take on the subject. Perhaps I can steal some ideas. I haven't followed the Libertarian Party for near 25 years now. I can see them embracing all the leftist crap, as they are as blind to biology as the "progressives".Delete
Submitted. The title is Survival retreat considerations, so that you recognize it.Delete
Yeh, like I had so many in my in-box! :) Looks good, the Charlie part cracked me up. Posted tomorrow. Many thanks.Delete
Remember, any and all groups that are of significance, have any level of profile no matter their purpose or political leanings are/will be monitored and infiltrated by intel/deep state. Stay clear, do not associate or be around them, they will have a pox upon them.ReplyDelete
A pox on all their houses. Ya gotta love that one.Delete
Lone wolf/hermits, from my understanding, end up being psych cases. Those that now intentionally live isolated lives successfully, can go get human interaction anytime they want it. Even if you live alone in the city with no friends, keep to yourself, hate everyone, you can still have your need for companionship met in simple ways such as a non-hostile experience with the cashier at the grocery store, or co-worker/customer interactions. If you're alone after a grid down event, ANY outside human contact may end up being your last. That's pretty stressful.ReplyDelete
I've never watched it, but there's a TV show called Alone where highly qualified survivalists try to survive the longest alone in the wilderness. Supposedly their biggest failures for tapping out early are their own minds, being unable to handle the isolation, and that's with them knowing that everything is "normal" back at the world they left. I think you still need a tribe, no matter how small, at least one companion.
Ah, aren't the TV dudes "alone" with a camera crew? I think the main thing is, you survive the die-off alone. It isn't a Forever After thing. A few months, perhaps?Delete
There is a trade off of risks/advantages for being loner hermit recluse. Lack of tribal help/pooled resources/fellowship. But, there are as many alternating advantages. No politics/dissention/back stabbing, no catching sickness from others, using up your supplies. Nope I'll stay in the shadows and wilderness, a better known unknown.Delete
Going Hermit has many negatives, all worried to death over. Few focus on the negatives of groups. Embracing Hermits positives doesn't mean one ignores the negatives, it can just mean they realize the negatives of the group. Which aren't eternal. It is just that during a die-off, they are far more pronounced, with the negatives of being a hermit being LESS pronounced.Delete
It's helpful to already live in mostly isolation over a long period of time. My wife and I have been doing that for more than 10 years now. We can easily go several weeks without seeing another human. I don't find it bothersome at all because I have lots of things to occupy my time, things I enjoy doing for the most part. In fact, when I do have to encounter someone it is irritating because it is distracting me from what I was doing. As long as I have enjoyable things to do I don't mind not interacting with people. Forever if necessary, or at least, the rest of my natural life. Fact is, I can barely tolerate anyone.Delete
Solitary confinement is a punishment dished out to those already being punished. Apparently being isolated away from rapists & murderers is worse than being with them. Go figureDelete
GS, I feel and act the same, and it is good practice if you ever go hermit, but keep in mind that the wife is still there. You are still getting human interaction. You would miss that more than you probably think.Delete
2:13-now that you bring it up ( I had forgotten that ), that is almost exactly right. And think of the Vietnam POW's who had to Morse code or whatever to communicate so they wouldn't feel isolated. We are hardwired to interact, even with those we dislike if nothing else. What a bunch of weak ass sorry excuses for naked chimps.
Yes, a very valid point. I’m much the same as GS. After the layoff in 2015, I rarely ever left the farm, until I only recently went to work part time for a family member (who lives right around the corner).Delete
However, on the farm are also my obnoxious alcoholic brother, and my nagging elderly mother. There might be times when I don’t see them for up to a few hours at a time, but their psychological presence makes a big difference. There will come a time however when it’s only me, alone, out on my lonely desert lot. That’s okay. I’ll just head on over to your house and hang out all day (that’s a joke, don’t worry :D )
Not that hanging out with assholes doesn't take its toll, but having NO assholes is worse. :)Delete
Was it Carlin that said, everyone is an asshole under the right circumstances? I'm paraphrasing.Delete
Actually, you are right Jim, I do have my wife for companionship. But because of our adapted lifestyles we are ships in the night sort of. It is now almost 11am and I have not seen her since about 8pm last night. I'll probably see her in about an hour or so when I go in the house to get something to eat, but maybe not.
My office and workshop are about 50' from the house, connected by a 50' wooden bridge over steep terrain and I go to the house maybe 6 times in a normal 24 hour period, mainly to eat and sleep, but today is my laundry day so I'll be in there doing that nasty chore too, but I don't hang out in there. My wifes office is on the 2nd floor of the house so I can go to the kitchen or laundry and not see her. I might not see her until 6pm tonight at suppertime. But yeah, she does fill that void.
I'll probably see the neighbor up the road on Sun when I go up there to use his shooting range. He's addicted to that stuff and when he hears my AR going off (or 12 ga or 9mm) he grabs a couple guns and comes running. Then we start comparing notes since the last time we got together. Mostly tactical, survival, tribe, self sufficiency stuff. We're both mostly on the same page and that's some what comforting (if I dare use that sissy word lol).
What's wrong with "comforting"? You are reinforcing your feeling of security with your tribe member. That is a damn good thing, and something a lot of us don't have. Good on you.Delete
I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout ofReplyDelete
your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
If you aren't a spammer-why do you need more pictures? Is this a coffee table book? Every other asswhore out there lards up his site with graphics. Why be part of the herd?Delete
What 2 pix is that spammer sounding spammer talking about? Boot that ass!Delete

I had one photo of me ten years ago, then one set of the B-POD construction five years ago. I guess you could call that two.Delete
