CW to collapse 2


CW TO COLLAPSE 2
Anyone with half a brain wouldn't want to be a politician. It might look like they do nothing except stuff a suit, but they must stay very busy fund raising for the next election. Do you really think Corporation X stands outside a Congressman's office door at 6AM waiting for him to show up so they can beg him to take their bribes? Hell, no. Politicians are all chasing the lobbyists for a limited amount of paydays ( the former fantasy is sold by the elite so we buy into “a few bad apples” ruining the system. In fact, the system is designed this way ).
*
So, by definition, all politicians are flaming idiots. “Why yes, in point of fact, we WILL be around to take your AR's and AK's”. In and of itself, no big deal. Gun control is how they control us, even while we still are armed. What I find different is that at a time White Deplorables are in a state of heightened alert, this statement is made. Beto O'Douche didn't make this statement on his own. He is, even among fellow idiots, one of the bigger idiots. He was told to say this. Why?
*
If you have a feeling that a Civil War is being actively pushed, you would be correct. Everything done, from sending middle age male perverts into female restrooms at Target and having drag queen read to your children, to Red Flag “miracle speed enactments”, to the inflammatory Wal-Mart free fire zones and the public statements of “we want to kill all of you White humpers”, the elite are pushing for conflict. Not the communists, the Elite. Communists are dumber than dirt, useful idiots, as are MAGA brigades. To me, it seems like factions are arrayed against each other to cover the retreat of the moneyed class.
*
We have a LOT of illusions about life and about the collapse. Look at all the idiots led around the nose by an autistic girl, pretending Gore Warming is our only threat. Look at all the idiots who spew hate AT the poor girl, like she is acting on her own free will. Money was changed hands to a media whore couple who pimped out their daughter. They drank the Kool-Aid, and their daughter is driven into a state of perpetual panic over a political agenda she has no comprehension of.
*
See, it all makes sense. We need to stop Gore Warming, so let in all the Africans we can, put them on welfare and our Diversity will change the climate. Don't get TOO worked up over it. Let the idiots delude themselves. You have better things to do, like stockpile ammo and wheat. I think the civil war is coming. And you are kept busy looking at it politically. Instead of economically. We already lost the culture war, remember? We lost politically and economically. Yet, we still think we can fight for our economy, as if there is anything left to fight over.
*
Right there is one of our biggest delusions. We think the economy WILL collapse. We don't want to admit that it already HAS collapsed. As in, finished. I know this is where I'm going to lose everyone. They think, wow, high tech fracking. We will survive like some sorry ass country boy. Bitches, please! Fracking is OLD, as in 1947 ( it actually went back to 1866, but nitro wasn't replaced by a non-explosive until the 1930's. The 1940's saw data collection on each well determining inputs. Your “high tech” wonder techniques are nothing but 150 years of incremental improvements ).
*
Did you ever stop and look behind the hype? As in, fracking was nothing more than a panicked “production at any price, since we control the printing press”? Fracking is not proof we are saved, it is proof we were desperate to get any kind of energy into our imploding economy. Worked for the 1980's, right? Now, well, not so much. If fracking is so great, why is our economy sucking the biggest mule member? Why are all our corporations zombies? The next Sears or K-Mart? Why do boards keep hiring the same kind of CEO, ones that make profits off of dismantling rather than running?
*
Does anyone perhaps think it is all already over? We keep phrasing the discussion as if bad things have happened and worse things will. And yes, this is true. Going from dysfunction to collapse is worse. But the underlying assumption is that of TIME. As if we still have plenty of it. What if we don't? If we cannot time the collapse, why do we think the continuing decline is the middle of a downhill journey rather than the last lip before plunging over the waterfall? That is the problem with a waterfall collapse. The mist/spray and the roar of water blind us to exactly where the falls are.
*
A stair step collapse is actually comforting. We know we keep getting respites. A dystopia future is like a soft unicorn glitter pillow to rest our weary heads on. After all, a dystopia might mean Terrible Things, but they are a STEADY system of terrible. If the elite are evil, they keep us enslaved forever, as a profit center. That sucks, but at least it isn't a collapse. We are STABLE. That is where I think most people are happy being at, the preppers that weave this tale of a dystopian present. They know Trump isn't REALLY going to make 'Murica great again.
*
But that is okay, because he, supposedly, leveled off our descent into Spicy Times. Right, because the LEGAL immigration has been cut off, we have pulled out of Afghanistan, we have our gun rights and we have factory jobs again. Right? No. Cheetos Boy is in charge of the USS Titanic that has not changed its course one inch. Well, the rich bitches with their own boats that own the Titanic and control Captain Trump at the helm, they are actually in charge. But the captain gets to decide what music the band plays. Go Team Orange!
*
What makes me think the economic collapse is already here and that it profits the elite to place us in a civil war? Let's touch on the profit aspect and later double back on the assumption of “past tense economic collapse”. That will be its own article tomorrow. For now, profit. The wealth extraction has already been ongoing. Really, for fifty years. What makes you think there is anything left to steal? The elite are bailing out. Now. That is covered later. Why bail before every last red cent is picked off the barroom floor after the patrons get into a slugging match?
*
I think the elite know they have no other choice but to destroy nuclear armed America, from within, to save the rest of the world from a repeat of Fukishima, times ten to a hundred. From the day that Vietnam was lost, we have been on borrowed time as a colonial power. Once we lost the PetroDollar ( defeating Libya was our last victory defending that paradigm. Nothing but defeats followed that ), it was just a matter of time before our empire collapsed. Desperate powers in decline resort to desperate measures. Ours will involve red buttons and fallout shelters.
*
Do you kind of get the feeling that the elite are no longer trying to save this country? I do. I think they are abandoning the string pullers to fend for themselves. Their proxy rulers are actually on their own, without funding, and flaying about trying to save the system from itself. Such as when the Brits pulled out of former colonies almost overnight, leaving the puppets in actual charge ( witness the decades of blood after that, even though, yes, the Soviets helped in the carnage ). All these idiot politicians are actually in charge now, instead of the man behind the curtain. God help us all! But it is by design. The collapse is intentionally being accelerated.
*
Foreign invasion, designed pandemics, EMP's, even engineered economic collapses, they all take way too long. The nuclear genie could be unleashed. A civil war, now, that instantly diverts everyone's attention. Might this account for the tsunami wave of dissent we are right now witnessing? More tomorrow.

  2. re:
    today's linked book

    I acquired Snuffy's fictional book at a prep expo probably three years ago. I thought the story was simple and unimaginative, narrow and short, and forced the goofball characters to rely on technology.

    I keep it handy, ready to give back to the author next time I see him. Free, no strings attached. Keep my ten Federal Reserve Promissory Notes, he needs them more than me.

    In Snuffy's shelter-in-suburbia book, the forward by ,Rawles has zero connection to the content. I'll go further... ,Rawles had zero influence on the content. I'll go further... no decent person with a lick-o'-sense influenced the content.

    It is embarrassing.

    Glancing through it at the author's table at the Albany Oregon prep expo a couple weeks ago, I felt like I ought to worsh my hands after I returned it to the stack.

    My advice:
    Get training from Red Cross.
    Do not get training from those green-helmet C.E.R.T. goofballs. You don't need a clipboard and flashlight to survive a disaster involving vibrant rioters abusing your tender Caucasian heinie.

    Warning:
    I am part of WordCrafters, the authors group dedicated to improving written content. If you ask, be prepared to hear me tell you your writing is rubbish, incoherent, irrelevant, and appropriate only for out-houses after the good-stuff runs out.

    The material in Snuffy's two books is an outline waiting to be formed into a rough first draft.

    Ossifers. Honestly!

    Bison,
    Nice line about the puppet-masters ['TheMalignantOverlords', thank you SeaGypsyPhilosopher Ray Jason!] abandoning the goofball bureaucrats. No way this can fail to be entertaining!

    PS:
    Try to not be a goofball.

    1. I had forgotten what the link was. Went there, discovered that the Kindle version was free since I already bought the paper version. I need to reread it. I honestly remember it being Not Terrible. Since I'm VERY critical about everyone, this surprises me. I'll have to see what I missed the first time ( or, did I read it a second time and forget? Not sure )

  3. 1. Did the creation of the Federal Reserve system bring about the creation of money out of thin air?

    2. How would an economic system based on gold reserves have prevented #1?

    3. If an economic system is based on gold reserves then is it possible, and is it highly likely, that some people can corner the market on wealth by owning more of the gold than the rest of the saps out there?

    4. If my line of question is correct --big IF there -- then what does the Federal Reserve system really do? Does it create a false middle class with more people living better and fewer poor?

    5. Creating money out of thin air. Does that put money into circulation that allows more people a share of the pie, as long as they don't go into big debt?

    6. Creating money out of thin air. Is that the reason why so many people have money invested for their retirements?

    7. If their retirements are just as phony as the system which created their accounts, how would these people who have played the game for decades, have fared without funny money in a system based on gold?

    1. DAMN, DUDE! Well, I asked for it.
      #1. Yes. Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression followed exactly that.
      #2. It wouldn't have. Supposedly we had gold reserves from 1913 to at least WWII, if not all the way to 1971. You can still print too much money even on gold.
      #3. No. The government will steal any wealth accumulated as such. See FDR's theft of gold or the gov's changing the rules on the Hunt brothers.
      #4. a central bank funds a colonial expansion better than any other economic system. We got exactly what we needed when we needed it. It only fell apart recently.
      #5. in theory, inflation keeping pace with energy and wealth incoming is neutral. It cancels out deflation. The issue has been that inflation is many times increased instead of taxes being raised ( although inflation IS another kind of tax ). Debt is bad under ANY system.
      #6. in a way. In theory, investing the money creates a return, which cancels out the inflation. In practice, they have been getting hosed the last decade.
      #7. less inflation, BUT, also less gain from investments. Even if there is NO paper currency to ruin the gold holdings, you still have had the historically odd Carbon Fuel Age increase in precious metals, having the same effect as the Spanish holding the New World. Gold supply inflation. Oil, and prior coal, and prior to THAT, gunpowder colonialism, skewed the whole economic paradigm. AFTER all this crashes, THEN we can return to the historic gold/silver paradigm. Not until then

  4. Acorns for food. I think most preppers are overlooking a huge resource that is free. Now I understand that most people won't want to screw with it. Also oak trees don't grow in the desert, I assume. This is not anti wheat, I love wheat. I've got 3 years in buckets and 6 months worth in my van all the time. But wheat ain't free. Acorn flour taste great with a slight nutty flavor. By ounce acorn has almost 50 more calories, a little less protein and carbs, but contains 9 grams of fat which is hard to get eating lean meat like rabbits and squirrels. Also acorns are full of vitamin a, e, and b, iron, and potassium. I stored 4 50 gallon galvanized trash cans full last year, and am doing 8 cans this year. Bet I harvested 500 pounds from one of my trees. Just pick them up and toss them in water and if they float throw them away. if they sink place them on a tarp to dry, shoot the tree rats for a snack that try to steal. When dry store for up to two years. To use crack and grind in your grain grinder and leech out the tannin. Then dry and use as flour. Also roasted nuts taste like chestnuts. Steamed taste good and you can recover acorn oil. Acorn pancakes and sourdough biscuits are my favorites. I have almost replaced my yearly wheat flour usage with acorn. Hope this helps or give somebody something to think about.

    1. Damn good idea. Nope-no acorn love in the desert :)

    2. Tree crops, like acorns or chestnuts, are about the only way I can figure to raise/grow enough calories to feed people without raising row crops that stand out like a sore thumb. Trees weather drought better than row crops as well. You can get up to 50-100 pounds per tree. 4-5 trees per person and your starting to actually feed someone.

      Delete
    3. Yes, once established there is no tilling, no weeding ,no fertilizing, no watering, no work except collecting, storing, and processing. But all trees are not created equal, and year to year harvest vary. It seems like white oak drop a less tannic, blander tasting acorn every year. I prefer my red oak acorns, but they have more tannin and must be leached longer, and seem like a smaller crop that only drop acorns every few years. But I have hundreds of trees so I should always have plenty. They say the Native Americans would eat a ton of acorns per year.

      Delete
    4. That's five pounds a day. How much of that weight is the shell, because there is no way that is even possible. You'd be eating all day long.

      Delete
    5. Tree crops vary a lot year-to-year. A certain percentage gets taken by animals or has worms, etc. Any excess can be used as animal feed for meat. 4-5 trees per person is in the neighborhood of 200-500 pounds per person per year. Not nearly 5 pounds per day, particularly when considering you won't yield 100% of what the trees produce.

      Delete
    6. Jim, I agree 5 pounds sounds crazy. That is just something I wrote down in my notebook last year researching acorns. All the stats about calories and so forth are from the internet, so really I would say its all a guess. I do know that my shelled acorns, a pound of shelled and leeched and ground makes about a cup and a half of flour. I would guess I used about 100 pounds of acorn flour in a year. Trying to double that next year.

      Delete
    7. I choke down one cup of whole wheat flour a day. I can't imagine eating much more than that ( unless Spicy Times ). If my math is close that is two pounds a week

  5. No one knows the future. There are too many variables, including those we don't even know exist. Preppers should consider one possible variant of a SHTF situation:
    --- The US begins to come apart. Demographic changes, unrealistic expectations whipped up among the socialists' base, followed by their victory at the polls, the loss of American military supremacy as China rises, a big economic collapse -- these shocks could certainly destablize our 250-year old Republic. Now... what might happen?
    One possibility is an attempt at separation (let's not use the word 'secession', which has unfortunate connotations): this could come from several directions, just as it did in the former Yugoslavia. One possible direction is 'red state separation' -- an attempt -- which might be successful -- by the 'red states', or some of them, to separate and from a renewed American republic.
    Surely preppers would want to emigrate to this new country, if they don't live there already, rather than attempting to survive on their own in one of the failed states that would be left behind. So if they're not living in such an area already, they ought to consider emigrating there when/if they can.
    In any case, the 'lone wolf' scenario is a Hollywood-induced fantasy. There is strength in numbers and in organized and prepared numbers. This means: join, or form, a militia.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. But there is no strength in a crappy group. Most preppers as is have little motivation to move, or to store quantity over quality, or to conform to group standards that they themselves didn't fashion to save themselves money. And if you form a militia, you are one of the first ones targeted. Most likely the only group you will get is whichever one you stockpile for yourself, on your dime. Then choose people just on your trust of them-much more important than how much weight they can ruck.

      Delete
    2. No one knows what the winning strategy is, which is why we can fill up the internet with endless discussions. My view of history is that every militia/army, sooner or later, runs into a bigger, better army and gets laid to waste. So, if someone decides to form an militia when rule of law breaks down be sure to enjoy it while it lasts. Your tough group of 20 will run into a group of 200, or your group of 200 will run into a group of 2,000. I'm just not a "joiner" at heart. I'd rather live in the boonies where most people prefer not to live and be my own boss.

      Delete
    3. It doesn't even matter what the winning strategy will be. Someone will be doing it, the strong survive, the species continues and our stupid asses are road jelly no one remembers. All the debate is just folks panicking since they want to be in the winning group. Me? I don't think I'll be that lucky.

      Delete
    4. To James:
      While I tend to agree with those who support forming groups, your deep thinking exposes the limits of that; in fact, when you think deeply enough you come to see that being strong and being lucky is all you've got.

      My latest fantasy: get a big enough sail boat, live on it the harbor in the Pacific. Buy a condo in Ensenada. When SHTF happens here, get the kids to meet me and sail on out. Stock the boat, make sure the guns don't rust.

      I won't do it. Just showing how ideas start.
