MEAT IS FOR CLOSERS 3
If you want any kind of tribe, you have to feed your recruits. And recruits is exactly what they are. Have you watched Full Metal Jacket, lately? I think the second half of the movie blows rancid greasy monkey rectum, but the boot camp first half is some of the best film stock Kubrick ever shot ( he isn't always my cup of tea. Clockwork Orange is the closest he came to ever making the entire film interesting, without long boring ass artsy fartsy segments, and that still suffered some ). I know many of you actually experienced Basic yourselves, but that was ages ago and the movie is a good reminder.
A recruit is a scumbag with no discipline and no motivation, no clue and no understanding that people are not meant to be walking Cheerio's ( head up your ass ). Does this not describe the average American civilian ( and 60% of those in the military, the fems and OtherColors who are there despite ability )? They are essentially worthless, only good at being consumers. And I mean that in the sense of consuming food, water and air, to no purpose.
Not to try to sound like an Elite asswhore looking at the Worthless Eaters and planing their demise ( after exploitation ). Everyone who is a Normie and a Deplorable, the 90%, is worth saving. Only the elite and their water carriers deserve automatic elimination, in my book. But just like a military recruit, they start out completely worthless. Lectures and reason, logic and treating them as equals are all losing propositions. You must reprogram them, through pain and suffering. Did you not actually appreciate that yourself, going from a recruit to a full time military member?
You earned your position, making it a lifetime achievement. And you were glad you got rid of that sniveling worm you used to be. Now, we all know that the brainwashing process was used, and was needed. You were manipulated into loving those who abused you. You turned against your fellows, violently, if they did not conform ( see the movies “blanket party” ). You willingly and eagerly helped your leaders use and abuse you and your teammates. But it worked, didn't it? That is what is necessary to make a unit thrive and survive. Bleeding in training instead of combat.
And a lot of that process isn't pretty. The subjugation of your will, the surrendering of individuality. Forming a Borg Hive Mind, even if it is beneficial. But the reason we don't hate it ( I only ever hated the incompetence of those in charge, not being in the organization itself ) is because it is a natural state of our being. Not this pampered pussy status we find ourselves wallowing in and getting hooked on like cheap heroin. Men belong in combat units. The family unit is a reward for that, not its own purpose.
I am NOT stating that your survival tribe needs to be a military unit. In fact, that is one of the worst things you can do ( since the only experience anyone has is with a Second Gen military organization. This is counterproductive in a decentralized tribe that needs as much equality as possible for cohesion ). I only mean that to begin with, you must treat new members as recruits. After they have earned a place in your tribe, then they join as equals ( any combat leadership is EARNED. Not appointed by dictate. The choosing of an experienced member to lead all is decided by all, then they become subservient on the battlefield ONLY ).
Recruits are NOT part of your tribe. They haven't earned it. They are probationary members. If you feed, you lead. Once they earn tribal status ( by performance but even more by earning unconditional trust ), then they become equals. Until then, The Road beckons as a harsh task master. And your males are responsible for their family members. You don't have time to look after and correct a bunch of curtain climbers and bitches. If the man can't control his family, what else is he lacking?
If the other females cannot control a wife who acts up, are they truly devoted to the tribe? If the older children cannot control the younger ones, do you want them being responsible for your safety? If your soldiers cannot motivate and help each other, they aren't a team. This is where your people self correct each other and provide discipline and structure for you. Because it helps THEM, most of all, to have a cohesive tribe dedicated to the death to each other. And by “your”, of course, I only mean as the founder of the tribe. Once equality is earned, you are merely one voice among all family heads.
And this finally brings us to the title of this article series. Meat. Dead animal flesh. BBQ. Protein. Recruits don't deserve meat. Meat is for tribe members. A bunch of idiots show up, unorganized, the kids dripping snot, the wives castigating their men, friends squabbling. They are scum. They do NOT deserve to be fed, as they are a waste of skin and sperm. They are completely useless to you. The only reason you are feeding them is that you need more tribe members, and the cost of THAT is rolling the dice on new people.
So, they get gruel ( thanks, Pastor Joe, for the kernel of the idea. Get it? “Kernel”, “Gruel” ). That is all they get, unless you have a surplus of wild greens ( they aren't allowed to gather those themselves, as they are dumbasses and will pick immature crops or poisonous plants ) you can toss their way occasionally. Not meat! Meat is for closers. Can you think of a better way to motivate people than with meat? A better way of punishing than reduced meat rations, or a return to gruel? It is a perfect carrot and stick ( because except in winter with shelf stable food, and no fresh vegetables, a carrot isn't going to motivate anyone ).
If a tribe member is acting up and a friendly cuffed fist aside the head doesn't work, back to gruel! If you want off gruel, you need to be the perfect tribe member, shedding all civilian habits and modes of thinking. Those with the expected values get butter or oil as well. Caught taking extra meat? A “time out” on gruel. You get the point.
( And of course, this is all group consensus. You want the tribe to trust and protect you? It has to remain egalitarian. Although, like the Bill Of Rights, there will need to be an initial agreement of what is NOT up for change or debate. You do not want to carry over the terrible modern practice of killing custom for fun and profit ).
I haven't been to the feed store for a few months ( a guy gave the NOL a big bag of wheat he had extra of. I think it was straight from the field, the amount of twigs I pick out of my nuked bread ), but let us call corn about $8 a bag ( 50lb ). They used to be one third the price of wheat, but then Shrub's ethanol corporate welfare program jacked it up to ¾ the price. I stopped storing it after all mine had too much moisture and molded. What was the point of paying more, having to further dry it, then buying the lime to process it? That was only worth doing at the old price. But if you solve those issues, say you go with it simply for the cost savings.
( Corn sucks both in taste and in having much less protein than wheat. But, again, it is for recruits ) Setting aside the storage container issue, you can store a pretty significant amount of gruel at that price. Say you forego one AR-15. A trusted brand name is $500. A ton and a half of corn. A pound a day for six months ( clearing fields, planting them, erecting defenses, etc. ) is fifteen people. Obviously this is within everyone's grasp. Now, yes, I was not this optimistic the last time we talked about this, but then the assumption was supporting full tribe members. Recruits need and get less.
Could we keep going on about this? Of course. Defenses alone, without having extra guns, is a few articles in itself. But let's take a break and resume another time. All for now.

Corn's a lot better if you learn to nixtmalize itReplyDelete
As for the 100lbs of survival pasta, it was in a dumpster really close to here. I actually know of dumpsters for veggies, meat, you name it and I've not really been looking. As for gathering it using my bike, I did a move to a new building only about a mile from the old one, a bit over a year ago and since I could not afford a pickup truck, nor would my employer rent or buy me one, I got a Burley "Flatbed" bike trailer and moved literally a ton or two of stuff with it. I use it now to take things to the post office and fedex, late night runs to pick up cool stuff someone's thrown out, etc.
Right, "nixtmalize". I can never remember that name, but it is what I meant with the lime. And thanks for the trailer name-I'll check it out. I don't know the odds of me moving back out to the B-POD, but better to always be ready.Delete
It cost me $200 delivered from Amazon about 2 years ago. Much cheaper than the ones rated for carrying kids, because kids.Delete
BTW FMJ is fuggin' hilarious to anyone who's been through Basic, in the field, etc. Yeah the 2nd half is a downer, the guy gets his camera stolen and that's kinda cool and then it's boring/stupid from there. But the scenes from Basic are great, ya just can't stop laffin'. "Fatbody" LOL! Having the guy eat a donut while everyone does push-ups, classic Army.
A JELLY DONUT!!! And of course, "too selfish to give your buddy a reach-around"Delete
The actor who played Pile had to actively try and put on weight for the role.Delete
Wanna hear something funny? I changed the ring tone on my wifes phone to the hooker scene. She didn't know how to change it back. Phone rings in front of customer, can't get to phone in time. Hilarious times ensue
Just think, y'all went through basic after it had been much shortened and made more PC.Delete
Dingo, I love you, man. I wish I had the stones for that :)Delete
Spud, please don't be jealous. :) It is much funnier when it happens to other people.
Hell, no jealousy here. I thought basic was an adventure and mostly fun. It was nothing , if you understood what they were after and complied. Woe to those ignorant and bull headed.Delete
Now I know how you can survive a one week meal plan-you are way too easy. I actually preferred Basic to the duty stations thereafter. Basic had a purpose, which wasn't political backstabbing office politics and gross incompetence. Or, if it was, we were exposed to it, ignorance being bliss.Delete
“but the boot camp first half is some of the best film stock Kubrick ever shot”ReplyDelete
Yeah, you gotta wonder how this boot camp thing would go down in today’s “culturally enlightened” military? Does Tommy turd burglar get to show up late for roll call, due to a sore rectum from the night before? What about when Seafood Sally is experiencing her monthly. Does she get to opt out of exercises?
That dude that played the drill sergeant in FMJ was apparently the real deal, and was merely playing himself in that movie. Something tells me that coming across a dude like that (which is the entire reason why our military ever functioned reasonably well in the first place) in the modern military, would be about as likely as spotting an empty box of bonbons on Rosie O’Dumbbell’s night stand :D
Even if Rosie didn't eat them, she would accidentally roll over in the middle of the night and they would be lost forever between the huge slabs of ass fat. Don't be bitter, Rosie! Someone somewhere would surely want to hump you. Even if you have to pay them.Delete
Edit: Meant to say “Full box”ReplyDelete
Eaten Rapids Joe blog had a good storyline (Seven Skinny Cows) on training recruits from the tribe into a defensive force. Good explanations and descriptions of why it is done. I thought it was great - you might want to give it a read and judge for yourself (if you haven't already).ReplyDelete
He is also continuing the story, under another name. But I think he slowed down so as not to burn out.Delete
Although against my primarily introvert nature, I put energy into building connections now.ReplyDelete
The only plus to suddenly becoming a tribal head in some future aftermath is maybe everyone would be supermotivated and mentally focused to work hard to produce food, security, etc.
Part of me wonders though: if one can't be successful building social connections or flourishing materially in these relatively easy and comforable times, how the he'll are they going to do it during really tough times?
No one is truly motivated right now. They miss a few meals their focus will get better.Delete
Anonymous 2:28: I understand what you mean about building connections with people even though my personality is introverted.Delete
Now is a good time to find out the people you like and don't like so when SHTF you know who to trust (or not).

Granted, it only works if you already have some guys as back-up. On the bright side, if they kill you they will be right behind you, soon dead of Extreme Stupidity. Yeah, I ate chili once a week for seven years, and haven't touched the stuff at all for the last four years.Delete
Ha ha, my wife has been training me on food fatigue for the past forty years. No worries heh heh.Delete
Now that's funny, I don't care who you are.Delete
Yup , it's burger and fries Thursday...or perhaps a change up to fish and chips lol. No , what am IDelete
thinkng ? That's only on months with five Thursdays...

There's the rub.
