darwin and malthus list


DARWIN AND MALTHUS LIST
So, here is Darwin and Malthus, two wild and crazy swinging guys, sitting down for a beer after a hard days work trying to convince people they are idiots ( for their own good, of course! Well, plus, it's a little bit amusing ), and they decide that it is past time to make a list of folks who are hosed in the coming Post Oil Dark Age ( remember PODA? I don't think I've used it for years ). Now, without getting into the whole probabilities discussion, keep in mind these are just folks with a target on their back.
*
That doesn't mean all of them will die. It doesn't mean that if you are not on the list you are safe. It doesn't take into account luck good or bad. It just means your odds are far worse. Two things to keep in the forefront of your pea brain. One, WAY way more folks are going to die than is indicated by the remaining resources. The cycle is, we overpopulate and then mostly completely die off and then start all over again. In the case of the reindeer on the island, and the yeast in the vat, EVERYONE died off.
*
Humans will of course survive, because we are not limited to a niche food source ( either are cockroaches, our buddies in survival ) or climate. NOT having fur is handier than you think. The only question is if it will be a bottleneck event or not ( and for all you whiners out there screeching like castrated feces flinging chimps about Gore Warming, please and thank you shut the hump up. No one wants to hear your communism disguised as compassion. Man has been ruining his habitat long before coal or oil. And Mother Nature will destroy man far quicker than the converse ).
*
And two, because far more people MUST die than necessary, which is a survival mechanism so as to bring surplus back for a healthier remaining much smaller population, there will be absolutely nothing fair about the die-off. The smartest people will die and most ruthless retards will survive ( another survival trait is people get more stupid, except in surplus resource times. Smart people don't breed, and the dynamic is Breed To Succeed-until it kills you ). It ain't fair, but numbers matter.
*
You will see very smart people try to convince you that the more intelligent the species the better off we will be. Stupid smart people! They will also tell you that we can voluntarily breed less and gradually reduce the population without war or famine. Yeah, nice friggin plan there, egghead. Stupid people are going to outbreed you and replace you. Look at California if you are confused. For tribe survival, he who starves last wins, and the more farmers, soldiers and breeders you have the better your odds are of displacing the other tribe.
*
Rapid overpopulation wins, in a surplus state. In a shrinking resource state, the selection process MUST be brutal, quick and unfair. Your tribe has one chance of surviving, and that is by being ruthless. That means if there is ANYTHING at all wrong with you, goodbye, you are the weakest link. Who are the worthless eaters that we do NOT need to survive? And you will find that while the selection process can be petty, it is also in line with biology. For instance, all the ugly bitches are on the list. This isn't just cosmetic. What we have come to accept as “beauty” actually covers good health and good genes.
*
It is easy to be fat and female, especially when you are in poor health ( gals are just built to store fat. Sorry. That is the price of carrying a fetus and nursing a baby ). It is a lot harder to be fat on JUST the bumper and fender, if you know what I mean. Too skinny and you cannot breed, too fat and you die of health complications. You have to be in the optimal range. And guys really like that range. That is what is sexually attractive.
*
If you are NOT sexually attractive, in scarcity times you will be voted off the island. You think guys are just thinking with their dingus, which is true, but a side effect is that only the most fit females for breeding are allowed to replenish the gene pool. And the same goes for males, in a giant Trial By Combat. Only the fittest and most cunning ( which means it isn't JUST the youngest ) are allowed to keep eating and breeding. And the winnowing process there is even faster than with females, because you need far less males to remain viable.
*
Which means, my friends, if you are over about 45 years of age, even in good health, you are most likely going to pick a short straw. Hermitage is much healthier for you than a tribe. You can't store enough food to keep everyone happy enough to allow you to live very long. Even a group of older folks will, if the food starts running out, start picking winners and losers. As you might imagine, the losers are not given a vote. At the very least, have a buried cache hermitage as a back up if you are in a tribe.
*
Remember how I keep telling you that humans justify bad behavior ( and some of the worst are religious types, just saying )? In a situation where your group starts to see a diminishing food supply, you WILL see very shortly justifying behavior ahead of time. If a older female is going to be discriminated against, the other guys and gals will start “inventing” group rule infractions. As in, they convince themselves, subconsciously mind you because nobody is ever evil in their own mind-Hitler was saving the targeted German race from evil foreigners and domestic fifth columnists, that the target is “up to no good”, or “is acting funny”, or “is not cooperating ( to their illogical demands )” or something similar.
*
I know you don't believe me, because you are a saint and would never do that, but I suggest that you rewind your life and take a better look. How many relationships that you knew weren't going to work did you sabotage? Perhaps by focusing on a minor irritation that you let slide before. Then, you get the other person to leave, and you are the blameless victim. You know you justified it. “Oh, she is going to be a big problem later”. “Well, why isn't she even trying? I sure am”. “Why is she such a bitch?”.
*
Now apply that on a group level, and remember it is actually about food and starvation rather than compatibility this time. Of COURSE people are going to invent poor behavior on others part to justify their own bad behavior ( like running someone out to die ). Females STILL act like that in good times, and guys still listen to their wives about who is socially acceptable. In the future, being socially unacceptable means you have probably been handed a death sentence.

    "At the very least, have a buried cache hermitage as a back up if you are in a tribe." - Lord Bison.

    I always wondered while watching The Walking Dead, why they never had supplies (BOB) off campus in case they were overrun? Seems to have happened alot.

    Ya think, that after the first time one of the group could have come up with that plan. By the way... I could only watch a couple of seasons before I had to stop watching. Blood pressure was just getting to high as a screamed at the TV on how STUPID they were. Is it just the writers picking on my intelligence?

    1. I could get into a detailed conspiracy about propaganda designed to portray survivalists as morons to discredit them, as does the NatGeo series, but I think it is as simple as just following the TV format at the expense of realism. Wasn't it the first season, they were camping in tents, without look-outs? It started out being pretty bad.

  2. On freeze drying issue discussed in Wednesday's comments: Just from what I remember reading, the Incas pulverized potatoes and left them exposed to dry on high altitude, cold mountaintops. Seems like the high altitude and resulting relative lower air pressure, not just low temperature, was the key. Low air pressure, or ideally a vacuum lowers the boiling point of water. Lower air pressure allowed sublimation to occur, which is basically the food's water content being boiled off or turned from a liquid into a gas and exiting the food's cells with little or no alteration to cell structure.

    1. Didn't they also raise fish in ponds then use the fish poop water for the fertilizer? They had a pretty sweet set-up, all things considered. They just needed french fries, for fish and chips, for a perfect diet.

  3. Just thinking out loud. But one way of choosing who has to go is to base it on, how can I put this politely? Well, let's just say where are all the successful multicultural societies in history?

  4. My previous observation about race is that you don't want to be a minority where you live, or where a disaster occurs.

    4. White here, without money, and grew up in Hawaii. Yep, being a minority really does suck. Everything's blamed on you, and if you're poor you're assumed to be lying and conning people somehow; you could not possibly really need financial aid for college, nah, white people have gold bars hidden away under their beds! Basically take the stuff they said about Jews in Europe and you've got what's said about whites in Pacific Island nations.

    5. Stupid Howlies ( did I remember that one correctly? Not the spelling, obviously )

      Delete
    6. "Howlies" is dead-on as far as pronunciation goes. The actual word is haole, which the modern PC-crowd has decided means "without breath" but actually means "those have have/are of, iron". Hawaiians conflated iron, the boom of guns and cannon, and these strange pale people, who they were pretty sure were at least demi-gods.

      Naturally not being really any better than anyone else, we proved a disappointment over time. But the parallels between how Pacific Islanders think about whites and how Europeans think about Jews are many.

    7. Those PC'ers could screw up a wet dream.

  5. Excellent advice about having a bug-out hermitage to relocate to even if you are within the confines of a tribal compound. A tribe can easily turn dysfunctional when circumstances get difficult. It could be because of regular stress-induced conflict, or possibly the majority of the tribe will suddenly embrace a lunatic leader like David Koresh and you will suddenly need to get the hell out.

    So it would be a good idea to keep a BOB at the ready within the compound, and another one stashed a mile or so away, in case you are forced out without a chance to grab it. Even if the BOB only contained a knife, matches, and three cans of spaghettios, it would be BTN to have on your journey to the hermitage (where you will live out your olden years in peace and tranquility, reading books, gardening, shooting sparrows in the bird feeder with your air rifle to supply meat to add to the supper gruel, and of course shooting the occasional 'trespasser' with a brit .303 round).

    I would also recommend a back-up BOL hermitage. If I lived in the vast expanses of Northern Nevada, where Lord Bison lives, I would have at least 10 back-up BOL's to my 'back-up'. (Remember: when the adventurer Steve Fossett's plane went missing in that area, the search parties found four previously undiscovered plane crashes. They didn't find Fossett's plane, but a hiker finally stumbled upon it a year or two later. You would would have to go to the Alaskan Bush to find more remote seclusion than Northern Nevada).

    Yes, all of this talk of BOL's and BOB's can seem like cerebral 'escapism' in the present. But I call it 'cheap insurance' to think about such things.

    The post's and comment threads here are always fun. Worthy of a donation to Bison.

    1. I'm a bit unworthy, never having gone camping here in Elko county. Sure, I camped full time for many years, but still...the area I'd concentrate on would be the north fork of the Humbolt. Nothing there but mountains and feeder waterways. Course, probably lions and bears oh my.

    2. Hahaha those "extra" planes .... it happens every time. someone's car goes off the side of the road into deep brush or a ravine etc., and they find 2 or 3 or 4 other crashes too. Same goes for a car going into a body of water .... they drain it or just take a really good look around, find a few other missing persons.

    3. And native Americans, that actually know how to live off the land (well , some of them do)

    4. AC-for every NYC building they demolish, there's four Mafia victims in the concrete.

      Spud-not exactly a proud heritage of Indians around here. Digger Indians, and the saddest ones at that. Not to take away their victim status, of course.

    5. Sad tho the majority may seem to you, many of them are pretty good in the hunter gatherer skills. Some real good areas up on Duck Valley Res.

  6. Huh. Always wondered about that female bitchy thing. Guess there is a purpose to it after all. Might give hope to the "mean girls" in the post-Apocalyptic World.

    1. Do you mean, bitchy because they starve themselves to keep off the fat? I prefer chunky gals. More to cuddle, and they are a lot happier. I assume happier because they aren't hungry. But that could be my bias. Anyway, not sure how "bitchy girls" is a plus PA. Sorry, sometimes you have to do a "quote your source of comment" when the comments get this long.

  7. Knew a guy who, swear, had as a part of his TEOTWAKI plan bugging out into the deep forest in Alaska. With two fat women. He (generally) indicated that one of them would, umm, outlast the other.

    He had really dead eyes. I think he meant it. It'll probably end up in a post some time.
