hating darwin


HATING DARWIN
There are some people that are prepper posers. I pray to all the gods, especially the vengeful ones rather than the ones who are all about puppy dogs and unicorns, that you are not one of them if you have self-identified as a Minion. Pretty Pony Prepper Princesses are the folks that think they are woken to danger and are proactive in their preparations. They are the Hurricane Preppers or the Earthquake preppers. Nothing bad will ever happen on a system wide basis, but they understand bad things happen locally, at Mother Natures whim. Ever watch Andrew Dice Clay?
*
Old Mother Hubbard, yeah, I humped her”. That is what Darwin said about Mother Nature. Natural disasters are the least of societies problems. Do you REALLY think that a major earthquake is going to be a problem in southern California, or is the problem peoples dumb ass dependence on water from hundreds of miles away, which is dependent on even more people moving to the desert to get an overwhelming voting block to force the rest of the state to subsidize their water projects? Is an earthquake going to kill more people than the civil war from importing half of Latin America to that dry spot?
*
What is more dangerous, every day, in Los Angeles, an earthquake or fire, or the Crips and Bloods or the militarized police force tasked with suppressing them? You'll get shot before you die in a natural disaster. Of course, in either case the only real solution is to not be where the danger is, but unless you are right under the proverbial lighting strike, just being part of the human tribe pretty well protects you from Mother Nature. We began as a species by being able to run down lions with sharp rocks on the end of sticks.
*
( Have you ordered the book Primitive Technology by John Plant? The link is at the end of this article. He has the YouTube channel he turned into that book. Just watching him fire hardening a pointed stick and lobbing it thirty yards from a homemade bow, sticking it deep into a tree is awe inspiring. I should be ordering my copy soon and I'll pass on how good it is compared to the videos. He makes it look easy, anyway )
*
I don't mean to demean the Natural Disaster Preppers. I used to be one ( well, that and a nuclear war. Alas, a product of my Cold War youth, I thought that would only be a one year disaster. The fools we were buying into the government lies ). And if you are at ground zero, a natural disaster can really mess things up. Just wading through sewer water can kill you. But despite the title here, this is a survivalist blog, not a prepper blog. I mean, come on! Bison Survivalist is abbreviated as “BS”, so we can't have that now can we? Much better the same initials as a giant energy conglomerate.
*
( Actually I was “bison press” and it was a natural move to “prepper” from “press”, staying with the “P” ) A prepper is usually but not always a Yuppie Scum, a pale imitation of a survivalist, who wants to live in a cabin in the woods with a bomb shelter basement. Survivalists know the entire world is ending, a civilization collapse. Preppers just want to have enough freeze dried yak colon to get through a short emergency and then back to working for Diversity Is Our Strength Conglomerate International so they can pay the mortgage on the suburban castle.
*
From my snarky description you might be aware of that I think about short term emergency preppers. By preparing for a two week emergency, they are preparing to die in two weeks. Not to say a survivalist with five years of food won't die in the first twenty-four hours, just that he has a lot more wiggle room to survive if the disaster doesn't meet his optimistic expectations. Being an optimistic survivalist is like being in military intelligence. You might get something right, occasionally, by accident rather by design.
*
Now that we are straight about not being a dumb ass and thinking the world with diminishing resources and exploding population is going to work out to your wishes and desires, let's once again talk about how people act in a civilization collapse. In short, they hate. People don't JUST covet. They hate. They hate you for having food when they don't. They hate you for not sharing. They hate you for not voting for their political or racial fantasy utopia, to have averted this social collapse. They hate you for competing with them for the remaining resources.
*
And once people hate you, they are ready, able and willing to kill you. Think about what the average German did to any American prior to either world war. Not one damn thing. But we had to hate Germans so that JP Morgans wealth was preserved and increased in the first War To End All wars, and so that we could get enough economic stimulus to save FDR's banker regime in the second war. Yeah, Roosevelt was a commie whore, but he took his orders from the Rothschild's and Rockefeller's. Who didn't care what kind of government he led as long as it was profitable and consolidated power for them.
*
Do you know who the first targets of the Bolsheviks were? Marxists. I thought that was fascinating. Communism is an excuse for power and riches. If communism was such a powerful ideology, FDR's communist government wouldn't have detonated two nukes as a stern warning to the Soviets, their brothers in the International. Stop being blinded by communism in and of itself being the danger. The danger is competition in any political guise. Granted, fighting and killing communists is a much better rush than any other run of the mill enemy, but just don't wear any blinders about them.
*
Western Rifle Dudes usually have a motivating subtitle on their blog heading. Sometimes it is “harden your heart”. What do you think that means? It means, be ready and willing to kill the commies. White communists are far more of a danger to you now than Black Panthers, if only because there are so many more communists out there. Blacks are still only about 15% of the population. If it is more where you live, well, I don't know what to tell you. Now you have two enemies you must fight. Can you kill without hating? Usually not.
*
Hating is how normal humans, as opposed to mentally unstable persons, prepare themselves to kill the enemy for their resource base. Because nobody thinks it is okay to kill women and children for an enemies field of corn, we have to lie to ourselves that we are going to war because we hate the other group who owns the corn. The corn then becomes the spoils of war rather than the cause. Self deception is wonderful, if done correctly. The very first step in war is not buying AR's with FLIR scopes and training. It is hate.

  1. Following. A weather "event" or natural disater "incidents" are really low on my personal boogeyman list. You just ride those out, and reemerge after that short time event occurance to rebuild and regroup.

    I devote much more mental capital wargamming out the human problems and system failures that will be much more catastrophic. If a Minionite has not already score carded all of the neighbors and persons in their sphere, into allies and enemies, they are fatally naive.

    Commies and lampost statists will not be a prolific enough game species to endevour on in most folk's A.O. Those types will just be pick games of targets of opportunities in between the normal duties.

    The mouthbreathers and skells of your community will have to be quickly eradicated like vermin, less they later on become the next fifth column marshalled against you or your tribe.

    Don't be shy about premptive actions, as post apoc will provide Minionites a nice new unopened rule book to either play by or ingore as may be the case. Listen to your dna/lizard brain, not silly assed, antiquated social constricts that are quickly no longer are applicable in spicy times.
    Just saying.
    Stay Frosty.

  2. Training tip for conditioning tribe members that may not (yet) possess that dog eat dog, kill and survive instincts or skill sets. Utilize clear facial photographs sized to superimpose upon your small arms training targets. It need not be a known or current personage. It should be a broad or diverse selection of images of personages: male/female, youths, other types, that you will encounter during collapse and combat ops. (Verbal motivation helps like describing how that imaged target enemy is going to booger them viciously real soon) Spouses, kids, elders, etc need to be bucked the hell up and salty, BEFORE the stink starts. Practicing face shots on neighborly looking images on targets is good programming. The day will come when necessity requires instant lethal action on that sapper infiltrating as a posed innocent. Plan and "train" accordingly.

    That is all, carry on.

    4. Good training is "varmint shooting" you can find groups that go out after coyotes etc. but you can also do it around your neighborhood with a pellet gun.

      I still remember the day I told a group of "survivalists" I was in with that we should hold a sort of "chicken killing and preparing workshop" and these big ol' guys got a little green around the gills and put it off.

      Whether it's prairie dogs out in Eastern Colorado, rats at the dump, whatever, get some practice in on cutesy-wutesy animals.

    1. Most people hate Deplorables. Even though we were here first. So screw them.

    2. I've lived among Deplorables and No, thanks. I'd take my chances with the Hispanics any time.

      I've seen a level of petty crime that would make any black ghetto proud, mothers pimping out their own daughters (and old guys willing to take up on the offer) violence and idiocy, no concern, even negative concern, for family, and a level of hate and anger that's probably only found among the Iks (look them up) or some of the groups that feed into ISIS.

      I'll grant that those to the left of Attila the Hun hate deplorables, but they do it at a distance. They hear about regular Tuesday afternoon fun as engaged in by Deplorables like shooting up a day care center, and think they hate Deplorables, but to really hate Deplorables you have to live among them and observe them up close.

      Delete
    3. When I say Deplorables, I don't just mean rednecks and trailer trash. You are too narrowly defining. All those Red counties in the last election? Full of Deplorables, with the minority being Blues and OtherColors. Deplorables would mostly be determined by politics. Hilary invented the term, after all.

  4. “Ever watch Andrew Dice Clay?”


    There’s a name you don’t hear very often anymore. Of course, Ol Andrew Dice wasn’t the first politically incorrect comedian, he just went a little too far with it, much to the dismay of his career :D He did get work more recently in the form of voice over work. The talking hamster (Who is the father in the commercial. Weird commercials huh? ) is indeed Andrew.

    Click the play, then the blue “play video” tab at the top left.

    By the way, what is it with jews taking on Italian persona’s? Most notably, Jon "Bowzer" Bauman, Arthur Fonzarelli, and Ron Jeremy (Well, I thought he was Italian. After all, he has Gallo Salami between his legs :D ).

    3. Apparently Jews are most often mistaken for Italians.

      A couple of years ago I had a Chinese guy tell me, "You're not white". "Well, what am I then?" I retorted. He thought for a moment then said, "Italian?".

      Sadly, I am not Jewish at least according to 23andme.

      It could be that 23andme is more marketing than science, but my going theory is that I'm part Lithuanian Tatar, which is how I have a golden tan that's to die for.

    5. That was a darn good movie, even if I'm not a huge music fan. I can't stand Streisand ( watched way too many terrible movies with her in it, as a kid who went to the movies near every weekend matinee. How would you like spending your limited cash of THAT face? ) so I'm unable to watch that version, but I'm pretty sure the modern remake was far superior.

    6. Alex-I wonder if that company even tests for what they claim. A big dart board? :)

    7. “I can't stand Streisand”


      The scary part there, is that James Brolin married her, after having previously been married to that total babe on WKRP in Cincinnati, that played Bailey (Jan Smithers). Irregardless of looks, Streisand is totally obnoxious. Ted Danson’s another one. Whoopi Goldberg? Seriously? This will probably come out the wrong way, but she’s ugly, even by black standards :D Neither of these dudes are bad looking, even for older men (no homo).

      Donald Trump Jr, and Prince Harry, are two other’s that need to seek some dating advice. When you’re the son of a billionaire and royalty, you don’t need to date 50 year old, botox faced, former Fox anchors (Kimberly Guilfoyle) or washed up, past their prime, leftwing hollywood actresses (Meghan Markle). I don’t think the royal family cared. It was good virtue signaling PR (She’s bi-racial). And they probably just figured fuck it, it’s only Harry, the bastard son of Diana, and we never liked that bitch either :D

  5. Agree 100% with Hate being motivation to attack you and your family and your reasonings behind it. Kill or be killed because you have the last Twinkie or Ho-Ho.

  6. I like watching the Primitive Tech guy. He is doing cool stuff. I draw the line for myself at the steel age. Remember Conan the barbarian and the riddle of steel? You can get metal tools so cheap. I also want to use cement instead of making a type of Roman concrete because it's so much less work.
    But I believe this guy is just working a job, making video for money and now writing books. I missed out and should of done something similar but I'm to slow. Now all youtube is used for is to try to drive people to patreon, and sell t-shirts and flashlights.
    I don't think he would make it in troubled times. Everything takes way to long, and I never see him working in any kind of weather, other than sunny.
    You just gotta have steel and concrete.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You know how many years its been since I watched Conan? Damn, at least twenty. The problem with steel is that what will be left is salvage. Which is okay. For awhile. How long before the last of it is rusted away? Just looking at it long term.

      Delete
    2. I know steel degrades quickly left to the weather but if kept dry, or with a thick coat of paint, it will last for generations. I save all the pipe, fencing, sheet metal, rebar, actually any metal I can get a hold of. I'm trying to get the junk I need to build a rudimentary forge, so I can repair tools and experiment with making caltrops.
      The cost of carbon steel Mora and Opinel are so cheap I own 6 of each. I also have a broke down 85 chevy van, and the 99 astro for scrap steel when the time comes.

      Delete
    3. Bison, Thanks for the book alert on primitive Tech guy. I never knew his name, but he does do some shit with practically nothing.I'm looking forward to the book report. An inferior alternative to steel might be bronze, copper and brass if the tweekers and goofs don't steal it all.I have seen some above average tomahawks sporting brass heads, and pennies beaten into good field bird point sized arrowheads.The zinc pot metal ugly cents probably would SUCK though, so dated before 1982 for copper? Just manufacturing a bow and bow string primitively not to mention good arrows and be proficient is whoa skill set. If anyone ever needs a small tool in your bag of tricks I recommend the Stanley 12-101 trim plane.H/T to Mr. Black@ Operational Extras for that, it shaves ice, can do bow and arrow detail carving, notches on trigger trap pieces.etc. small and light hits above it's weight class.I like your sentence above; 'long term' yep.

      Delete
    4. DG-thank goodness the scrap steel price went into the toilet, so at least we aren't shipping all our salvage over to China anymore.
      *
      4h-yes, pre-82 for pennies. I think the effort sorting those is worth the hassle, just for trading precious metal. I've been told nickels make good arrowheads, but haven't tried it.

      Delete
    5. Keeping copper pennies is a nice little hobby. I like going through my change and finding old classics - lots of bright ones from 1976, for some reason. Finding a 1945 one day and a 1946 the next is a kick.

      Saving nickels is an idea also. You can always learn to make "hobo nickels" as well as arrowheads.

      Delete
    6. Hobo nickels? I think the '76 pennies are shiny because lots of folks put some aside for the Bicentennial, but finally got rid of them as clutter.

  7. Lord Bison, this is a great post. I prep for long term but being on the coast of Mississippi and survived ground zero of Katrina I do prep for storms. Storms mean gas, generators, easy foods and supplies to make quick repairs. I don't count on gas and generators for the apocalypse but keep them for hurricanes. I have food for 2 years (getting more wheat) and guns and ammo, solar and all kinds of stuff for long term. You can be a survivalist and still prep for short term emergencies.

    Like you I hate most people. Not racist but i consider how folks act. If you mess with my family and friends you will be an enemy. I'm a bit callous perhaps but it will serve me well.

    Andrew Dice Clay "Badda bing, badda boom" the original non PC comic. He's something.

    There is alot of asshole cops out there. and they have gotten more militant as years go by. Ive been a leo since 92. I had a call about a Vietnam vet off his meds "shooting gooks off the rooftops in his neighborhood. Yes he was, with a 357. I was talking him down and he quit shooting and had two asshole rookies call in that they had the shot to take him out. I told them to stand down and got him to go to the hospital. I do respect my brothers but there are alot of young and older assholes out there. I'm still working half time and still trying to give wisdom to the young officers.I guess I understand both sides but there are still good cops.

    1. There are still plenty of good cops, I agree. I also think that there won't be enough of them. I really do respect those that try. You see it all the time when more than one is present. Always the hothead hopped up on steroids and power. Making life harder for those who see it as a noble calling. And I don't think the idiots are a mistake-they are put there on purpose. The fact things aren't much worse is to the credit of the good cops. But as soon as things get spicy, how many hot heads on the other side are going to act as badly? Then the good cops naturally pull in defensively and rally around the idiots. That is how you make a career doing good work obsolete overnight. Just add rebellion. Hopefully it never comes to that. But I don't see a way out.

  10. Natural Disasters are the START of the collapse for most areas. The paint will keep the rotting buildings looking intact until the wind picks up. Here it is more than a decade since Katrina caused New Orleans to flood and there are STILL places that are not fully recovered. Just like that it will be in most areas as our collapse continues. Natural disaster strikes. Minimal rebuilding commences "see folks" say the authorities "everything will be back to normal or better soon" and then the rebuilding just sort of winds down with no announcements, and the new 'normal' is nearly post apocalyptic beyond the area for visitors to see.

    THAT is how the collapse will be.

    So the 'Weather Disaster Prep-ers' *are* RIGHT but too short sighted to see that there is *MORE RIGHT* (like Jim of the fancy hairs) they will forever after be in a post-disaster 'new normal' once the skies clear...

  11. I read a lot of primitive technology books so I can learn to survive with nothing. I also read a lot of history. During CWI, the townspeople in Atlanta were tossed out by the Union troops with nothing but the clothes on their backs on a rainy February night, coldest month in the South. Many died. What wasn't confiscated was burned. That's why primitive technology is essential to know. I plan to NOT be one of the many that died. I want to know how to survive starting out with nothing.
