SURVIVAL HERMITAGE BOOK 11
Oh, how I have babbled and prattled on about the absolute necessity of getting the hell away from everyone, even and especially that contrived tribe member. Because People Are Hell. Not because we don’t need people-we do. We didn’t become pack animals to protect against lions and then decided to abandon those hundreds of thousands of years of evolution for no reason. No, we have ALWAYS been mentally hard-wired to need each other in armpit stink close proximity ( is that why farts are funny? Another bonding experience ). That is why we are tribal.
That is why we are racist and xenophobes, why we hate diversity and love stupid gladiatorial games. Tribes protect us. But only tribes that are formed from near death experiences or joined at birth are loyal to each other ( we were literally forced into loving others who want us to die for the group upon fear of dying otherwise ). Tribes that are put together like a book club or a Boys Tree House club have no real loyalty or lasting power. And that is the ONLY group that you have as an option for tribing up for the apocalypse.
Being culturally isolated autonomous individuals not even unified by family, there simply is no point in pretending a tribe will be a viable structure which can be used to help you survive. I bought into the whole tribe ideal. So far in my current location, I have stockpiled for and have planned on making three different groups my ad hoc tribe. I didn’t tell them because they were idiots but at least partially trustworthy idiots. And they all moved for financial reasons. Now I’ve given up and just figured it will be me and the Old Lady against all.
Neither way is close to viable or ideal. Tough cookies. I’ve had a good life ( I worked hard towards a meaningful relationship, and towards a skill and talent. Material goods mean nothing in the end ) and if it ends tomorrow I’m okay with that. If I have another ten to twenty years, even if most of that involves killing idiots to cleanse the gene pool rather than playing at Internet Journalist, I’m okay with that also. Don’t forget that as important as all this prepping stuff is, living a satisfying life is also important.
Which is why I don’t care anymore if forming a tribe is impossible. People are getting much more insufferable. Going it alone is much better NOW, as well as AFTER. How can anyone argue that it isn’t a good thing to avoid most people now? Haven’t most of us been moving in that direction most of our lives anyway? Away from people, as people prove time and again to be the worthless cures that they can be and want to be and simply are. Avoiding people is its own reward, now and after the apocalypse. Facts be hard, yo.
Staying around people is expensive, as there is always someone profiting off our inability to avoid each other. All the Greenies try to sell the concept of giving up our own land and houses and moving into packed condo high rises and using public transportation, as if not only would this save the planet but also save resources and money. In actual fact they are asking for unlimited immigration ( more room now ) and rising costs of living. Cities are MORE expensive, not cheaper. Infrastructure is cheaper but there are more parasitical organizations canceling that out.
It is cheaper to live way out in the boonies because you are elimination all the middle men only there to profit off the privilege for you to breathe, eat, drink and secrete. Think about it. One pipe can carry water to a hundred people in the city, yet each person pays far more than what it costs per capita. Sure, the water bill might be cheap, but then they rape you on the sewage bill. Then they sell that reclaimed water back to you. It is cheaper for rain catchment and composting toilets. In the country, there is very little actual tax on that dirt road near you.
Nor must you own a car to keep you safe from all the ghetto dwelling Diversity People. Remember the huge fuss over carjacking? It was so scary because the car was the ONLY form of safety folks had working in the city. You think that was scary, just wait until the PetroDollar takes its final puke and you cannot get gasoline anymore. If you are silly enough to believe Fracking Forever, you might as well throw in Abiotic Oil to fuel your fantasies of Happy Motoring Uber Alles. Whatever papers over your poor choices.
You need less money out at the Hermitage, and hence can earn a lot less money, which is really nice because after a certain age, earning money blows. The deal used to be, a hundred years ago, you worked until you dropped. Ideally you made it to your fifties. Why do you think they all smoked? Work was going to kill them before cigarettes did, and for how bad tobacco is for you, its one saving grace is that is sooths over red ass exposure to people causes. For a time, you worked hard manual labor then “semi-retired” to management.
That way, you had the energy to keep working until 65. But then they took away those management positions AND made smoking unaffordable. Cheese dinguses! Anymore, don’t count on being able to work much past 45-50, for your average Joe. No more energy for Monkey Work, no more management positions as they all went to diversity hires. Why continue to struggle in the city where prices continue to rise, as your savings and income shrink? Embrace the Suck of economic war against White Males. Embrace poverty, make it your own. You can’t play in the rigged game.
