MEAT IS FOR CLOSERS
I know some of you prefer a hermitage. Looking around at humanity, this is a very logical stance. Your average 'Murican is a lard assed moron. They have no concept of proportion or moderation. Sure, McDonald's is tasty ( no, its not. But they are the number one fast food joint, so I'm assuming the average Schmo who cannot cook or prepare raw food thinks it is the cat's meow ), and at the end of the day you want to turn on the TV for escapism, but you don't make those day long activities.
I get it. You work at a dead end job with zero security. You are married to a cow that will file for a divorce the day you get a pink slip, and she had enough spawn ( that see you as a wallet only, since mom spoils them ) that you are as trapped in that relationship as you are that job. To keep the job to bribe the wife you must fish for undigested corn out of your bosses colon half the work day, every day. You could give a crap that you eat McDonald's every day, even as it brings you closer to the sweet release of death.
( I used to defend Micky Dee's against the Fake Food Protesters, since even with unhealthy food they were still a rare treat, an indulgence. You know, everything in moderation. A little of their food won't kill you or even shave off a few months of your life. Then, the crap bags made ALL the food taste really bad, even their once world famous french fries, even their chicken nuggets. And that was AFTER they raised the prices through the roof. They had no excuse except they had a personal vendetta against me. Bastards )
Why do you think the overwhelming majority of Americans are overindulging in really unhealthy lifestyles? They know, even only subconsciously, that their lives are poisoned piles of crap. They know every year is just getting worse ( again, not a conscious awareness-if it was they would handle it better ) and that they cannot escape reality. So, they simply deny that reality. They party likes it's 1999. Oh, no, they can't REALLY party, with cocaine and hookers. That is now reserved for just our elite masters. It used to be, a nice rack got you into the party.
Now, you need a nice rack and an invitation, and they ain't giving out invitations to just anyone-so bitches don't even try keeping themselves Party Presentable. Sure, they try for Beer Party or even Crack Party Presentable, but no longer Cocaine Party Presentable. Since guys can't work anymore for the nice chicks, and most chicks don't use their looks but rather their ovaries to entrap the males, you are left with a very large percentage of the population that just hates each other and their kids, and tries to escape that 24/7.
You think I'm joking? Males need to strive for the best looking breeders, and they cannot do that if they are unemployable or if employed working for a female. Females need to be able to compete with each other for the top male, and they can't do that once they've eliminated all male dominance ( plus, the suitable pool of elites has shrunk too much, so as to eliminate for all practical purposes any chance of winning the Sex Lottery ). Yes, Spanky, it always comes down to eating primarily, but sex a very close second. We've ruined that culturally and economically.
THAT is why the idiots push and shove to get into line at McDonald's rather than pack their own lunch which is one tenth the price and ten times healthier. They are using fake food as a mild drug. The same with social media and sitting on the couch all afternoon and evening, shoving in junk food. That is why dinner is prepared foods, with everyone in front of their own electronic teat. That is why there is a opioid “epidemic” ( supply courtesy of our Afghan occupation ) They want to stay drugged up on their Soma. Any soma will do. Even practicing being stupid is a way to stay oblivious and happy.
People are too afraid and weak to change their lives. Hell, I didn't nut up until my early thirties. But I'm also a slow learner ( being introverted and insulated ). So what excuse do these people decades older than that have? They don't. They were born morons, as we all were. They stayed morons like most of us do with teenager hormones blocking out our brains. Then they willingly swallowed the politically correct dildo to get and keep a “good” job. And to be PC, you must remain retarded.
Could that account for the popularity of PC? It allows you to stay a child your whole life, avoiding reality as someone does all your thinking for you. Another dose of Soma! So, looking into this stagnant fetid swamp of a gene pool, who can blame one for wanting to distance themselves? Hermitage looks like a really nice strategy. Of course, even if completely understandable, that choice is also to some extent an avoidance strategy. It is a GOOD avoidance, I grant you. But it is still taking the easy way out. It is a dead end.
Remember our two main motivators? Sex and food. Food and sex. We are still animals. Poop flinging chimps, with wristwatches ( reality check. If you own a cell phone instead of a watch, you are wrong. You are connected to the Borg. They control you. Get rid of that whore. Or at least never disconnect it from your computer as your off grid Internet connection. On the Internet? Sure, it blows. It also allows you to avoid a lot of people, and feeds me-so there is that ). You can ignore biology, but it doesn't return the favor.
Yes, I'm aware some people can turn off their sex drive. Good on them. I actually envy them. But far more of us than not will go bat crap crazy without at least some social interaction. So perhaps I should change the primary motivators to “sex, food and tribe”, although, tribe is kind of implied since you need one for sex or to secure/grow food. Usually. For those successfully choosing hermitage, I applaud. But that isn't many of you. At all. Will that be the deviant DNA that allows the species to survive?
There is where I'm having my doubts. We are already hard wired for tribe. It worked for hundreds of thousands of years. You can ignore that programming physically, bypassing the need by stockpiling Oil Age logistics, but I have my doubts you can ignore it mentally. If hermitage is the trait that allows the species to survive the die-off, how can it then be the one that ensures the continuation of the species? You can't emerge from a cocoon and suddenly find people to form a tribe. There is no trust. That is the only thing that allows for a tribe.
Again, I'm NOT saying hermitage is unappealing. It is a natural tendency to desire leaving the scum to their deserved fates. Hell, even the people you like, potential fellow preppers, are now entering their dotage and even if blessed with the correct attitude, they have one foot in the grave and one on a banana peel. Is there even a good alternative to hermitage? Well, I wouldn't say “good”. We are picking from Less Worse choices here. Continued tomorrow.

Following, hermitage whether in a physical established location, and/or as a state of mind operational posture within these now stupidly run society structures is an excellent course of action in the current times and circumstances. Many a Minionite has already been convicted of thought crimes, been penalized via taxes, fees, laws, regulations, marginalized as a human and declared enemy of the new state. Well then, hermitage is thus as easy as walking off into the background like a closing movie scene. Once a Minionite (of all stripes and types) gets kicked down enough times over b.s., the more ardent action orientated types are then psychologically forced and must make physical preps and changes for their last option at raw survival.ReplyDelete
It may take a weaning off period, to get clean of all those nifty system things that are fake pleasures, fake foods, etc. An assessment must be made to what really enhances and enriches your life. The other items that are injurious, detrimental and lethal will need to be eliminated from any exposure or influence and or outright (physically if need be, as may be rquired) killed off.
Unless there is a dumpster full of cast offs left out front of your old a.o. and crying and sniveling relatives and friends at your disappearance and self banishment you have not started or begun to go far enough for hermitage.
Then maybe as a true closer, you can eat your meat dish in peace, for a change.
I think most of my family has written me off. Only the NOL keeps me interested in hanging around society.Delete
Jim, most all 'Mericans are wrapped up in the matrix due to ignorance and stupidity. They won't leave the system and cannot be extricated, "leave 'em behind, keep moving forward". Many Minions are wise to the collapse and die off, but are overwhelmed or trapped in a stasis unable to really change much, nor desire to do so as unkowns are more scary.ReplyDelete
It is like an alcoholic russian living under communism example, where they are eventually mentally or physically beat down or worn down enough, demoralized, and with dim future outlooks. They adopt a role of the screwed: drink away, drug away, digital distract away, all those misery perceptions, staying numb the whole ride or lifetime.
It is a hard struggle to flush out the helmet and free the mind. Once the skull enema is performed, then those golden handcuffs, and related leg irons can get cut off allowing escape to that Manna countryside.
Start with that brain - cpu upgrade to thinking first. Then pack gear and stage equipment prepping stuff secondly.
Sure, reprogram yourself and rest is easy peasy. But the first step is a doozy.Delete
I think why more people aren't warm to the idea of hermitage is fear. Fear of having to depend on yourself, fear of having to provide food / water / fire wood. Fear of purchasing a rural property and not knowing if you will be able to hack it.ReplyDelete
In short, hermitage is a MAJOR step back. Kids with no responsibilities or means of getting a college education immediately out of high school are definite canidates. Spirit of adventure and proving yourself is strong with the young and idealistic.
A 50 year old may have more economic means to provide a way to buy a hermitage, but doesn't not have the energy to actually do the work unless they were born to it.
Perhaps a combination of both can be accommodated - Hermitage internship. The older takes in the younger person, teaching them what it takes to live out by yourself. An older couple, maybe 'empty nesters'. The younger receives a place to stay, food to eat and an education. An maybe when the couple is getting too long in the tooth to stay out there - a really good selling price. The young already has knowledge of how THAT place works.
Yeah, but, dude! People! In your hidey hole. No peace or quiet.Delete
My sister and brother-in-law and my adult nephews and their families are self-stuck in the mountains east of Sacramento California... far behind enemy lines.ReplyDelete
Each of them is blond or strawberry-blond with blue eyes. One nephew insists on flying a yuge District Of Criminals federalist flag next to their front door.
These good hard-working decent people are wearing targets 24/7/360. Everybody knows it except them.
Occasionally, stubbornness can be frustrating.
Me, I cut my losses in 1989; does a collection of 'found' dogs enhance a hermitage? The dogs and I think so.
You almost need dogs for a hermitage, lest you go insane. I just wish dogs were a little smarter and not crap inside as a matter of policy. I can see licking their ass-actual vitamins. But a carpet and dogs don't mix. I lived in Auburn late 80's. Colefax ( Colfax? ) right above that for a short time. Crowded even back then. Nice in its way.Delete
I’m almost in the same identical situation and area as are Marge’s relatives. I live east of Stockton (Stockton is the central valley’s version of Oakland). A while back when I renewed my NRA membership, they sent me a nice digital camo bag. My mother really liked it and wanted to use it, but was afraid that it might draw unwanted attention, so she didn’t. It likely wouldn’t be a problem in the small town that we live in, but she shops a lot in places like Lodi and Stockton, and it would be there. I’m fully aware of the situation that I’m in, and watch my p’s and q’s while living here. But I have options in the form of junk land, I just need to get out there to develop it. I’m starting to get tired of my current living situation, and also the hot as hell summers in this area.Delete
As far as hermitage goes, I’m willing to give it a go. People are just too much work these days. Under the right conditions, I’d like to be in arrangement with a female, but that’s probably not realistic in a hermitage situation. To be honest, I’d prefer to not live with anyone. I’d rather have a situation in which she lives close by, and we only see each other a few days a week. Like I said, probably not realistic, so I will probably be going it alone.
1980s, my pal Paul R. had a auto-body repair shop in Colfax on the frontage road south-east side of Interstate 80.
One day, Paul looked at me on the edge of panic. "Would you believe I put 60 grand up my nose! In less than a year!"
In my gardens, I prune and weed ruthlessly to remove non-productive matter. I cut ties with Paul soon after.
Same with Steve deC. of Colfax, and a hundred other goofballs I used to know. They could be dead; it's not my job.
On a related, I participated in my college re-union. Once, for the ten-year. Although it seemed counter to the 'alpha' trend, I realized my introversion was manifesting... and I had nothing to gain by prolonging the dissolution of our relationships.
But some friends are worth it. My SCUBA bud Bill O. called me six years ago with the news he was prospecting (a 'member-candidate') for the Mongol Nation motorcyclists organization, Reno chapter. At 66-years old, he could out-pushup any of the youngsters! Go Geezers!
I'm not even 56, and just reading about Bill makes me tired :)Delete
A good article about how to soften old beans:ReplyDelete
After years of storage, beans do stay hard even when cooked for a long time. Here's some solutions..
Thanks-I better check it out since some of my beans are as old as Hilary.Delete

LOL. Classic! Well, the worse it looks the less folks will think you have to steal. Take a few craps around the place to really keep them away :)Delete
I think you're joking, but DO NOT leave an unsanitary mess around. If your structure ever gets "discovered" by an official-type person, they will despise you for your filth and you will likely receive no mercy in regards to fines and the immediate removal/destruction of your structure.Delete
I was joking. Some time ago I heard about one of the crazy homeless dudes so freaked out about his neighbors he crapped all around his tent to keep them away. Sorry, I'm easily amused.Delete
Our dogs are on constant patrol against goofballs camping on the property.Delete
We run them off, then they sneak back to evacuate their bowels, knowing the dogs might eat it or roll in it.
Today, Kim Du Toit and Ol' Remus discuss the therapeutic value of punching holes in distant paper objects. Coincidence... or evidence of a 'greater mind' gently guiding good people toward right action?
Sound like the same kind of people who sue you if they hurt themselves while trespassing.Delete
"They are using fake food as a mild drug."ReplyDelete
Thank you, that explains something I've wondered about for years.
In a previous job I worked at from 1998-2008 I was friends with another fellow who was about 5 years older than me (I'm 63 now). He was heavily into preparedness so we had that in common and thus spent a lot of time together talking. He was overweight and always complaining about how he and his wife were always "on the edge of a cliff" financially. I felt badly for him and in the beginning tried to help until I got to know he and his wife better. The wife did not work since all she wanted in life was to be a "stay-at-home grandma and spoil my grandkids". I watched her constantly piss away his money trying to live like they made enough to not have to worry about money. He meekly went along with it "because she lets me prep" but he never had enough money left to buy anything of quality or build up savings for the coming economic contraction that I warned him was the greatest threat he faced. And yet, every single day, he would get in his car and drive to McDonalds and get a big bag of expensive crap food. Self-medicating the problem away, one clogged artery at a time. Yeah, I'd say that explains it.
I'll be the first to admit, that crap tasted GOOD. Really good. I was lined up with the rest of them, waiting for that McRib. I just never over did it because I'm too cheap ( even when the kids were little and they had 75 cent specials on hamburgers every week ). Until about five years ago, it all tasted so good. I can completely understand someone falling for the rush of that reward. Yet, after a week of eating out, even way back when I was young with a cast iron stomach and they were cheap/tasty, you start feeling like utter dog crap from that food. You really had to be hooked on that Taste Over Health-only it being registered in the brain as a drug would explain why people keep eating it even as they feel terrible ( and no, I never watched that Super Size Me movie until AFTER I experienced all this on my own-so that wasn't a subconscious influence ).Delete
I gave up on McD's a long time ago because:ReplyDelete
It's hell to work there so only hard cases and desperate immigrants work there - neither group speaks English well at all.
Menus are now all on screens, which constantly SWITCH AROUND. Fried are now printed in yellow, on a white background with the ice cream!
It's all geared to get you to have no other choice but to point and grunt at one of their "specials" which are more expensive than the Denny's across the street where you at least get free refills of OK coffee and far less noise.
SuperSize me is an entertaining movie, how many will take away the example of the jail guard who lived on Whoppers though? Differences were, he was living on Whoppers alone with no add-ons like fries, drinking black jail house coffee, and walking miles a day because it's what guards do.
Of all the fad diets out there, I notice the largest commonality is more fiber, closely followed by increased physical activity. Keep in mind, for most American'ts, adding 1-2 mile a WEEK of walking is something like a 3X increase.
Mexicans at McDonalds was a logical step, since you are now trained to use a robot ( which you can't talk to, either ).Delete
