ammo barter 2


AMMO BARTER 2
When is it okay to surrender to the enemy? Duh. Never. When is it okay to give in to the demands of a terrorist? Duh, same answer. Surrendering is the same as saying, hey, it's okay to labor for my enemy so he defeats my people easier. Or, it's okay if I'm tortured and give intelligence to the enemy who will use it to kill my people. Sure, it's okay if we are all civilized and observe the Geneva Convention, but not even The Home Of The Free does that any more. Imagine how much worse it will be post apocalypse. Hell, even now, would you feel good about how Uncle Sam is going to treat you in captivity?
*
His Black Shirt minions? Ah, NO! Save a round for yourself, because falling on your bayonet is going to be really frigging painful. As far as terrorists, I'll ignore the whole “Uncle is funding and using terrorists as a weapon” thing and just play it straight. If you give in to a terrorists demands, you reward bad behavior. Reward bad behavior and you get more of it. Look at the global Zionist campaign against Holocaust Deniers. First, hello, free speech. But despite how wrong it is, you have to admire the tactic.
*
The Zionist ( as opposed to Jewish, not one and the same ) disproportionate response is wonderfully effective in muzzling all dissenting voices. One historian that has thirty years of an impeccable research record utters one little thing that you would have to stretch to even imagine it being Denier Friendly, and you spend countless dollars then defaming and destroying him ( I'm thinking of David Irving here, although I might be off on specifics ). Before you know it, everyone is self-censoring and the Reparations Bucks flow in at an even faster rate.
*
So, a terrorist makes a demand. It is a small demand, and there are tons of hostages. Wouldn't their lives be worth such a minor cost? Look at the Chechnya guerrillas and the Russian elementary school kids. Who doesn't like kids? The Chechen guerrillas love kids, but they love THEIR kids more, so the price of blood must be paid. Even the most vile Russian politician or General loves kids ( I don't much care for the curtain climbing nose pickers, myself, but without them Hilary couldn't have climbed to power over countless bodies ).
*
But the Russians stormed the school anyway. It is a question of a few dead kids now, or a metric butt ton later. You choose the lesser evil. And not just a lot of kids later but before you know it, you've got Muzzy terrorists trying to destroy your whole country. You get some dumb ass Politically Correct lesbians in the band Pussy Riot, you arrest their ass on stupid sounding charges. Else, you are soon battling those crazies in every institution in society ( I don't imagine Russia is graduating any PC scientists that design pedestrian walkways to collapse ). A disproportionate response IS always called for, or you go on the defensive.
*
I discuss all this for a very good reason. It is all well and good to have analysts who see nuanced gray areas, as that allows the decision makers better information, BUT! You can't allow analysts into power. Life is much better lived in a black and white world as far as making any and all decisions. Your tribe is correct, no matter what. No discussion. No gray area, only black and white. You don't mistreat your family. Etcetera. Choices are the bane of good decision making. A lot of social and cultural dysfunction today are directly the result of too many choices ( other than binary ).
*
Set policy, and never waver. Never second guess. Do you realize the mass of propaganda set directly against that common sense dictate? The bastards in charge are lawyers at heart, and lawyers profit off of gray areas. They want you to always say, “yeah, but...”, because that is where they screw you. They can always insert an exception if you give them room. It is called getting a foot into the door, or allowing the camel to put his nose under the tent. Once the exception is given, they keep pushing for more. And more. Until they get the exact opposite of what you wanted.
*
No females in the military became a separate branch of the military became a coed force became women in combat roles. We went from no non-White immigrants to Catholic white immigrants to some Oriental immigrants to all non-White immigrants to no controls against immigrants ( as long as they are of alien cultures ). THAT is what happens with Exceptions. With Pliable Standards. Far better a superstitious inflexible tradition bound stubborn policy than a policy “guided by common sense”.
*
This is a skill we need to relearn, that of uncompromising tradition guided decision making. Binary. Yes or no. NEVER “maybe”. No exceptions to “no exceptions”. Never means never. One never surrenders. Your family is held hostage? No surrender. Your enemy has a reputation of fairness? No surrender. When policy is set in stone, it gets followed. Ambiguity is the enemy of policy. If you don't make it so simple a chimp can understand, half your people will screw it up. Inflexibility means a common sense rule always gets followed. The lawyers have you looking at flexibility as a virtue, but it is a vice. It is the conduit of anarchy.
*
Because people follow no rules without fail today, they have a perception of freedom. Yeah, you have the freedom to disown a family member. So you never have any family you can rely on. You have the option is de-friending someone, and so never have any friends. Your job has the freedom to fire you ( “we must remain competitive!” ), and so has no loyal employees. Without responsibility, you have no reward.
*
When you make the rules, such as “you NEVER get rid of your ammunition except bullet first”, and you NEVER break them regardless of the short term gains, in the long run you benefit more. Now, don't get me wrong. Ambiguity and a lack of solid rules are the bread and butter of my writing. I have a never ending amount of subject matter to refute, to turn into hard and fast rules to make life easier for you. Simplifying is what pays the bills. I look at both sides of every issue, because the issues have been simplified. BUT! They weren't simplified by throwing out any rules.
*
What we have to do is study and then re-frame the arguments. Then stick with them. All these complicated issues survivalists have stem from Exceptions To The Rule. Simply, there should NOT be exceptions. THAT is a lot simpler and saves you a lot of brain power. And when seconds count, LACK of exceptions are very important. “Oh, it's a child/woman/geriatric. Should I help them?” I don't know, dumb ass. What do you think? Well, on the one hand....NO! A thousand times NO. Are they your tribe? No? That means you can't help. No matter what. Always.
*
Would the Terminator be so successful if the rules were “he will not stop. Except when...”?

  1. I agree with you. Another example of the problem with gray areas is with homosexuals:
    First they wanted tolerance. They they wanted acceptance. Then they wanted laws made to favor them.

    Then they wanted to make everyone homosexual, especially children...for instance Drag Queen Story Hour where they roll around on the floor with children.

    1. I have to blame the parents on that last one. If you tolerate that, your kids should go homo so that genetic line dies out.

    2. I’m not 7:18 Jim, but I thought that I would chime in here. In some cases, the parents have little choice in the matter (Yes, you can home school, and you should). I thought that there was a law here in the states, that basically states that if your young child chooses to be “transgender”, you must let them, or face confiscation of said child. I couldn’t find it, but it is already a reality in Canada, and you know that it will be here soon enough as well. Now there is a law here in Commiefornia that forces you to have to put your child through the indoctrination campaign, with no choice to opt out.

      One of the profiled in the class is the child of Sonny and Cher, “Chaz Bono”, best know for his hit single: “Ive got a penis in you babe" :D (But in all seriousness, they are profiling sick fucks like this, and propping them up as role models)

    3. I can see the extreme difficulty. I guess I am a bit too harsh. That would be like expecting a Anti-Vaxer to keep moving to different states. I'll leave the blame at half to parents.

    4. Except homo-ness seems to run, in a small percentage, in every animal known. Until the Abramic religions came along, it was OK, too. Some religions/beliefs, like those of the Navajo, actually require there to be some homos around. And, I should note, the Navajos may well end up with their own nation again, as no one else can make it in that desert without modern conveniences.

      You can't force a non-homo to be homo any more than you can force a homo to be non-homo. In many advanced cultures (Greece, Edo Japan) you could be as homo as you like, as long as you do your part and produce some children. It was just a non-issue.

      I see it like smoking pot. It's pretty much completely legal where I am now. It still stinks, and I still have zero interest in it, but it's a good thing not seeing lives ruined over a little weed. I've had people give me weed in Santa Cruz, and I'll just say thanks after trying to turn it down, put it in my shirt pocket, and pass it on to someone else. Making it legal and literally surrounding me with pot shops isn't going to turn me into a weed smoker.

    5. Don't let Aesop hear you say that :)

    6. Sorry, I should have been more clear. Don't let him hear you about the "innocent weed" :) To him, drugs are like guns to liberals. They are animate objects, and evil. And must be regulated for our own good. I see his point, but it only works in a homogeneous society

  2. re:
    today's free books

    Score! I enjoy the work of both authors.

    For fun fiction, check into Mike McCrary. His RELENTLESS will be studied in writing classes for decades 'to come'.

  3. Yesterdays comment section...
    "The only true “forever gun” is a primitive Indian bow."
    Take one step backward from that and you'll have it. The atlatl.
    Peace out

    1. Is a bow easier to learn and keep proficient with? Is it more accurate? Because if not, is the increased simplicity worth it? You could go all the way back to just a rock ( no sing allowed! ) if JUST simplicity is needed. I don't have answers-I'm merely trying to get a better sense of the argument.

    2. In the book "Seeds Of Man" folk singer Woody Guthrie describes a trek across the American desert, I believe at least at one point in search of a "seep" from a gas pipeline to gas up their jalopy. It turns out that Guthrie's uncle or some such relative, is an ace rock thrower and is able to pot all the rabbits they want.

      This is how kids used to grow up - spending enjoyable hours throwing rocks, making and shooting little bows and arrows, spears, etc. I even experimented making and using a sling, and after that experience I find the story of David & Goliath all the more miraculous, because I couldn't hit shit with the thing. But at least I tried!

    3. @ Peace Out. I’m the guy that wrote that comment, and I’ve looked into the Atlatl briefly before. I sorta got the impression that they might be difficult to aim? I too would be interested in knowing more about the Atlatl if you have any experience with them.

    4. Okay, I found a site with a few good videos. In the first video, Matt Graham of Dual Survival, spears a few fish with one. Another video goes through the detail instructions on how to aim one properly. They look like they might be tricky to get the hang of aiming, but they also look a heck of a lot simpler to construct than a primitive bow.

    5. I'm wondering if it wasn't manufacturing simplicity but rather learning curve that obsoleted the weapon. Like going from bow to crossbow or crossbow to gun, the increased build complexity was compensated for by ease of use. Or was it simply increased performance from increased velocity?

  4. More Germans died in Allied POW camps than died from the actual war.

    The Nazi's at Nuremburg were tortured mercilessly for those confessions (which they recanted).

    The British tortured POW's they held to such an extent they begged for death.

    These were the "good" guys. Post APOC expect worse.

    The info is out there and isn't that hard to find if you so choose to search for it. I suggest you don't.

    1. Not a rabbit hole that is easy to go down. I only know of a few sources to explore the issue further, and I don't really want to take that journey ( I like the more theoretical questions, like, "did we infect vaccines", as it isn't as scary as history can be ).

  5. "Should I help them?” I don't know, dumb ass. What do you think? Well, on the one hand....NO! A thousand times NO. Are they your tribe? No? That means you can't help. No matter what. Always."

    Damn, that simplifies everything. I wish it wasn't that way but it is because fools have ensured that there's no way to clean up that spilled milk
