SURVIVAL HERMITAGE 9
So far I’ve been laying the Doom Porn on awful thick, talking up the advantages of getting the hell out of urban diversity centers and cheaply relocating in the boonies. The apocalypse will kill you because X, Y and Z, as it were. So let’s relax a smidge and talk about the immediate advantages to establishing a hermitage. You can enjoy immediately and even without a collapse. I do wish to perform a propeller beanie cap tip to my loyal minion who listed the following in a blog comment. It all comes down to avoiding idiots, but I appreciated the help.
No one is around to “borrow” anything. True peace and quiet within the home. No noise from neighbors. No kids to bring their friends home, to ruin your peace as they case out your joint for “borrowing”. No wife to bring her High Maintenance Demands home. Now, granted, there are some downsides to the advantages. You are old, bitter and alone. Getting to town in winter is not too much fun. You have to pre-plan trips to avoid solitude induced mental psychosis. All in all, though, it seems the benefits vastly outnumber the costs.
Obviously, I’m assuming you are setting up a solitary hermitage. You might get SOME gals to go out and homestead, but you’ll never find one past an alkie or druggie who is content to stay home and stay stoned to move out to a hermitage. They are far too much trouble, unless you get one that is a nymphomaniac. But I think it is safe to assume 99.999% of you are setting up the site alone. So, the advantages work well. You obviously need some human contact, but avoiding people more often than not has its benefits.
Borrowing is a necessary social activity. It involves helping neighbors and pooling resources. Unfortunately, in almost all places, you no longer have neighbors. You have random asswhores living too close to you. Sure, they might be good people once you meet them and get to know them, and if you think you can beat the odds, sure, you try that. But the majority of people living in an area are strangers to each other due to lack of any social cohesion. I don’t think it is because of TV or smart phones. Those were just tools to coincide with the cultural suicide of the last fifty years.
Thinking you can reverse that trend by trying to befriend neighbors is ignoring why it took place. Americans were a tribe, and those in power broke up that tribe for control and profit. Our American culture is now the ‘Murican culture, and that is a Humpty Dumpty you cannot Gorilla Glue back. Nowadays, if you help out a neighbor, good things MIGHT happen. More likely, they APPEAR to be neighborly but actually just take advantage of you. I can understand that your kids never borrow from you. They take. But so does everyone else.
Almost every time someone borrows something, it is good and gone. The only way you get anything back is through an implied application of force ( for instance, if the friend borrowing money knows you know his boss, and can trash talk him ). Or, when it get something back it is a long time coming, after some kind of damage. If you own a truck, expect it to be borrowed. To assure it isn’t mistreated, they “borrow” you as the driver and helper. Understand, I’m NOT saying good neighbors are impossible. I just mean, they are rare.
Better to just be away from the borrowers. It will bring peace of mind. Even more peaceful is the total absence of loose flapping lips inside and the complete lack of traffic outside. Remember Obammy, our Kenyan immigrant President? Who could forget, right? If nothing else ever would have turned me off television, he did more than enough to sour me. Every time I looked at his smug rectum of a face, I just knew within seconds his lips were going to start flapping. I dreaded the anticipation of torture. Loose flapping lips are the worst. I’ve had wives who were just like that.
Blah, blah, I don’t have anything important to say but I hate you, I hate your dingus and I hate your dog, so hump you now and for all eternity, misery loves company and blah, humpity blah. Good Dog almighty, if these bitches were made in your image, please send me to hell. It might be a sad and sorry state of affairs to have to go into town once a month, go to a bar, and hump the nastiest pig at 2am, but it ain’t too much worse than the nails on a chalkboard live in bitch.
I’m not misogynist, you purple haired cat lady mother humper. I love wives. I’ve had a whole slew of them. The one now is one of the very few who I genuinely care for, because she loves life and loves me for me. But like bad neighbors, most bitches be bad wives. Why? Not because they are female. Because they CAN. They can get away with bad behavior, and any gender that is able to do so is not pleasant to be around. Frankly, they are just dicks. Why subject yourself to that nonsense?
Even if neighbors are not dicks, they ARE noisy. I have a theory about 99% of people. They cannot stand to listen to the very thoughts in their own head, so they make enough noise to drown out the voices ( some do this with reading, to cancel out the voices with alternate realities in the pages ). Ergo, noise equals sanity. If you want to be a hermit, odds are NO noise is what keeps you sane. You and the neighbors are at odds, obviously. They might be sweet, but they are some noisy sons-a-bitches. Having no neighbors solves this problem.
I’ll continue this chapter the next time I post from this book.

Hermitage is the way. Minions being of this right mind group will adapt well to isolating positioning in a self induced hermitage. I made long lists of pros and cons in planning my own relocation. I have a good stable station now and here, But I will reap many downstream rewards and advantages. Expect 3 months to get orientated to domicile and new terrain. Expect 9 months to a year to acclimate to a hermit type of self exclusion. Once a Minion establishes routines and mindsets it will become a natural inclination and seem normal and right. Recommend Minions use all tools available (online data, mapping, ground recon of areas, etc) to make good site selection as there is no looking back or do overs. Good job again Jim, you lead the way.ReplyDelete
The only downside to this book is I'm talking myself into the lifestyle ( but with the counter force of the NOL making it an impossible choice ). :DDelete
Yeah, have feet in both realms. Use now circumstances and townie living to regroup and reequip like a military in garrison. Have other foot positioned with planning, gear and kit, and b-pod vacation cottage for safety valve purposes. A solid plan.Delete
If I wasn't married I'd be all over living like a hermit. Even in my area where junk land exists they just want a years wages for it I'd still do it. Fully paid for land, a hobo shack and a means to earn a little money but also get the dole. Sounds awesome
A mans needs are simple. And once your body isn't producing so much testosterone that you want to fight and f*** everything life gets so much easier.
I think the reduced testosterone in itself is almost worth dying in pain shortly thereafter.Delete
It would be much, much better to have a mate to live with. I know lots of country girls who would never consider moving to town. Some of them aren't the prettiest but they can cook and garden and do laundry. They're still out there.ReplyDelete
I've also known city girls with shitty dead end jobs who wanted nothing more than to quit the rat race and go rural but couldn't find anybody to do it with.
Country living and hermitage are very different things. I would think girls need a social network more than guys.Delete
Yeah, the partner needs to be eyes wide open and on board with survivalism, not yuppie country prepping. Still driving to town couple times a week in plastic suvs and picking up consumerist geegaws and franken foods is still down slope for failure come collapse and die off, which is the whole point of the exercise.Delete
On board gals come in two flavors. Gets It. Accepts it. I think 99% of them are "accepts it". Because her man wants it, so does she. And I really don't think they will get to the point they will approve of hermitage.Delete
Females are strange birds for sure. One that is a hermit as well would be rarity, caution though as she may be a head case and mentally damaged goods. Make it a very detailed interview and application process, with probation period, and deep background checks. Your life will be at stake, plan accordingly.Delete
You are so wrong on this, Lord Bison. The women absolutely want to quit the system. And "country living" is nearly the same as "hermitage". It's just a matter of the degree of isolation. Other than that, it's all the same.Delete
My point is that there are millions of women who agree with your assessment, and would gladly head to the boonies with you.
10:01-the one I took off grid was cracked when I met her. Living out there? She full on broke.Delete
11:44-let me clarify. I define a successful hermitage as living without a vehicle, with an Off Road Only vehicle road or trail, with no neighbors. Homesteading is with a vehicle and neighbors. So, no, I don't think most gals are made for hermitage. All the benefits of isolation, but none of the drawbacks, while homesteading, sure, the gals love that.
"...avoiding people has benefits..." [edited for brevity]ReplyDelete
A lot of folks nod in agreement after I say:
"I cherish my solitude."
Then they flinch and glance around, checking to see if our conversation is observed by The Parasites.
How do I define 'The Parasites'? A long long list, including everybody from The Ruling Elites to the goofballs squatting under a tarp and surrounded by sewage and needles.

January 9th WesternRifleShooters has a link to an article about Portland, Oregon. (look for the picture of garbage piles weather-protected by tarps) Apparently, the big city a hundred miles north of us... well let's just say 'nuclear cleansing' could be the appropriate solution to their ills.

Several times an hour, I examine my actions, then ask:
"What did I do today to accomplish building and maintaining my tribe, my community?"
Some days, all I do is sit on the porch with the dogs. And that's OK, especially with the dogs.
Several times a day, I ask, "are you doing enough to avoid people?" Sadly, I usually fail. The dog doesn't help, as she usually lunges for love at anyone within half a block.Delete
I’ll be 55 this year. The quality of Americans has gone down considerably since I was a boy. In the earlier years of my employment, you would get the occasional moron co-worker or two, but towards the end, most of my co-workers sucked. You get one of two conditions: the extreme far left democrat voting variety, or the republican neo-con variety (only slightly better). Generally, the lefties outnumber the neo-cons considerably. The former have a habit of trying to corner you on a hot topic issue, and pulling out their 3 trick pony bag of “racist”, “sexist” “homophobe”. (You believe in border security? “Well, you’re just a xenophobic hater like Trump!”) When I found myself tempted to go all “Claude Dallas on their asses’, was when I decided to seek a less conventional line of employment :DReplyDelete
With regards to women, they’re all feminists these days to varying degrees, and I’m referring to women on the right as well. For anyone doubting this, spend some time watching the faux news channel, and watch what happens if you get a dude on there like Gavin McInnes, that suggests that affirmative action should be abolished. Then proceed to watch these “small govt” “conservative women” vehemently defend their “hard earned rights”.
Also, the definition of rural, varies widely. I’m from the west, and when I say rural, I’m often referring to “50 miles from the nearest power line rural”. Good luck finding a women that will live like that. Oh sure, you’ll find one that wants to live with you in the country. But I’ll all but guarantee you it won’t be in a trailer on a $1500 piece of junk land (More like a $250k Ranchette, 20 minutes from a decent sized town).
Correct, I'd wager the most conservative women who still voluntarily lives the biblical lifestyle of subservience still assumes women's rights are still a fall-back. She is merely choosing to play one role now but reserves the right to change her mind at will.Delete
If you read Glubbs "The Fate of Empires and the Search for Survival" he cites feminism as one of the things that brings down civilisations.Delete
Regarding Gavin. I had to laugh that all his virtue signalling amounted to nothing. He shoved a dildo up his bum to prove he's not a nazi. But worst of all is he hung his boys, The Proud boys, out to dry.
Didn't hear about Gavin.Delete
I hadn’t kept up with Gavin lately. Dang. I hate it when I use someone as a positive example, only to find out from someone else that they let me down without realizing that they let me down :D But it wasn’t just Gavin McInnes (whom apparently has since been banned from any appearances on fox news) I also heard that Dr Jordan Peterson had made an appearance on that network, and he had those wannabe faux conservative, femi-nazi broads, foaming at the mouth, and with claws out :DDelete
The more they focus on the mouth foamers, the more they are trying to hide real news. Perhaps it really will be 2008 Redux.Delete
Anon 3:43 - Peterson is also a let down. I refer you to Vox Day as my source. Personally I loved his take down of left wing loonies. However Peterson is a left wing guy. And once you're alerted to his, how shall I say? His lunacy. Well, dang.Delete
I had a bit of a nagging problem with him, the biggest point was his "don't form a group White men" philosophy. I attributed misguided philosophy. Seriously - the current world heavy weight champion in MMA couldn't, by himself, stand up to a Antifa mob and come out alive. That's what Peterson was advocating.
I'll tell you what hurt me the most. Joe Rogan selling out his supposed friends Alex Jones and Milo (who I remind everyone was deplatformed for his anecdote about being molested as a child).
It's crazy times my fellow minions. Think for yourself and if in doubt follow the _man_ with the finest hair
@3:21. Thanks. Actually, I already follow Vox Day along with Heartiste (Though I’ve noticed that Heartiste seems to think that Trump is some kind of god). I also follow Heartiste’s photo blog, Goodbye America, which is a real hoot. I’m actually not that familiar with Peterson, but I used to like Gavin McInnes, though I was unaware that he had been cucked.Delete
Oh, I almost forgot Jim. But here’s a free PDF of that book mentioned by the other minion:Delete
Blech! The Goodbye America photos were mostly just gross and soured the coffee in my stomach. Fat pink hat asses and pillow biters. The Burger King yellow vest was hilarious.Delete
Glubb is a must read, and nice and short.
It looks like Jeff Bezos decided that $137 billion was too much for one man to have. So he did the thing that most smart rich dudes with lots of money do: he got married, had some kids, and now he’s getting divorced. Hahahahaha! What a friggin dumbass! Apparently rich and smart are not synonyms of one another :DReplyDelete
Even if Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos don't split his $137 billion fortune evenly, she still has a chance at becoming the world's richest woman
Damn, there goes my commissions! :D Without reading the link, I'm guessing 99% of that wealth is tied up in stock. I'm wondering, if she gets too much, will he deliberately hurt the stock price to cut her ultimate gain? I would.Delete
Just going from what I heard on the radio last night Jim, the break up is apparently amicable. What a stand up kinda guy huh? It’s quite an even tempered fellow that is willing to accept a giant, un-lubed dildo up the ass (metaphor for family courts, in case it isn’t obvious :D ) to the tune of $68.5 billion :DDelete
Yeah, I was wondering how this might effect your bottom line as well?
My luck, goodbye commissions. Knock on wood. Not like he is going to warn us, so we will see.Delete
When you get to Bezo's level money has a whole nuther meaning.Delete
1 billion is more than any of us will see in 10 lifetimes. If she leaves him with 1 bil he'll use to get even more. Takes money to make money. Let your mind wander, imagine having enough coin that you didn't care about it. Is that sci-fi or what? Well thats the would bezo lives in every day.
