howling wasteland 4


HOWLING WASTELAND 4
If you look through the lens of group dynamics, with the people confused about looming danger and thus looking for an enemy to preemptively strike to mitigate danger, a lot of confusing events make more sense. You might be asking yourself why Muzzies are some nasty pissed off folks when all we ever did to them was take their oil, which they weren't using anyway. We try to fit that into a box that makes sense, religion or politics. Oh, look, a cleric preached holy war. Or, the US middle east occupation riled up the ragheads.
*
Well, no. What CAUSED those responses? WHY would a clerics words suddenly motivate the masses? Why didn't the Muzzies from Turkey immigrating to Germany thirty years ago cause as much crime and chaos? Why now? I contend that it is about the food supply. These Monkey Men might look at things through their cultural lens. Mean Christians mock our religions, so I'll go rape little girls. But their Lizard Brains understand that they had better go on the offensive or those Christians are going to get them to control the food supply.
*
Remember, very few of us listen to our Lizard Brain. Not directly. How many hundreds of thousands of years have we lived and thought as monkey's? It is near impossible to listen to the Lizard King ( Jim Morrison did, but mostly to the hedonistic yearnings. Damn acid ). When the Lizard is warning us, we hear that the enemy group is a danger. We then put the puzzle together with the tools we know, such as politics or religion. No Muzzie is saying “the oil is running out and hence our ability to feed our overpopulated ass”. All he sees is Religious Persecution or Political/Economic attacks against his tribe.
*
Look, think about someone that cannot control their eating. Something happened to them to screw up their sense of security and they think that at any moment someone could take away their bowl of gruel. Their reality is one of food security fear. You can't talk to them about healthy choices or self esteem or any of that other horse crap. At root, they are in fear and dealing with it. A Muzzie at root fears for the survival of his tribe, as resources shrink past the point the danger can be ignored. After THAT, yes, then a crazy cleric's ramblings make sense and he is motivated.
*
But you can't cure the illness by thinking it is a religious problem. It IS all about the food, even if only one in a hundred people can articulate that. The Lizard and Monkey are working together, even if the monkey thinks it is all his idea ( hence the befuddled motivation or reasoning ). The species survival tool is to steal food, or secure food ( or mates to breed warriors, and so the rapes, as conquering soldiers would as a means to repopulated with their tribe ). But we must tell tall tales to ourselves to justify stealing and killing.
*
A commie/libtard is doing the exact same thing. Subconsciously, the Lizard on alert, they know resources are collapsing/being stolen. Their tribe must survive, and OtherTribe must die to leave enough for themselves. White Males are not suddenly evil because Hilary started saying so ( and she was saying so because she knew what her voters wanted to hear-she ACTS like Lucifer, but all she is focused on, when her mind focuses, is power and money. It really is nothing personal with her ), but because resources shrank to this point it is going to cause a war.
*
The war is NOT about politics. It isn't about the Second Amendment. It isn't about taxes. It certainly isn't about communism or capitalism ( those are just handy labels for the sides ). It is about resource control, because the tipping point was reached where enough people are SUBCONSCIOUSLY aware of that danger. Call it a social zeitgeist. That general “feeling in the air”. Everyone is scared, doesn't know why, and lashes out as directed by Lizard ( so even if unaware, the problem is solved ). Communists don't want to starve, and call for the elimination of all Caucasians.
*
They think they are securing equality and equal opportunity, even though they are following the zeitgeist of fearing for resources. Red forces ( freedom fighters, conservatives, Constitutionalists, whatever ) are ready to fight back, thinking Way Of Life, Religion, Family Orientated, are ALSO following the same zeitgeist. Both sides are correct to fight, because of the REAL reason they fear, not for the perceived, fake, excuses reasons. They both know subconsciously that the system is failing, the system that feeds them.
*
Just as a rapist is only raping for pleasure, even though the Lizard Brain is telling him that so the Lizards tribe will repopulate the conquered area, Commies are killing for ( their point of view ) freedom even though they are compelled to do so for just plain survival, unbeknownst to their social brain. Now can you understand WHY both sides think they are right and a fight is inevitable? Both sides view their holy war as just and good, but both sides must fight just to survive as resources shrink.
*
And I am oh so very sorry, but if you cannot realize that the resources ARE running out, you are already dead. I won't call you an idiot, because you are NOT. What you are is blind to the Lizard and only thinking in Monkey Mind, but at the same time you are absolutely ignoring that zeitgeist we just discussed. Your big sin is ignoring the zeitgeist. And if you are still confused about the meaning, it merely means a general awareness of a feeling you cannot explain. A group feeling. A group Lizard Brain moment. It is your ancient hind brain actually getting through to you, in which a larger group shares in.
*
I'm not sure if this is some form of old group flight awareness, although I don't think it is JUST about danger. Although it could be. A mob rioting might seem like they are on the offensive, but it could be group violence as a means of protecting themselves. A mob “rioting” economically such as the Dutch Tulip graze or the US Housing Bubble or the Dot Com Bubble might be similar occurrences of Group Think in a defensive capacity ( make money early, cash out, invest in hard assets to survive the coming economically induced famine ).
*
I think we are in a moment of Group Think that IS defensive, even if it is disguised by economics ( steal Whites jobs ) or politics ( redistribution, or defending the Bill Of Rights ). We might be forced into the coming war, if for no other reason than dangerous Group Think ( you are with us or against us ). Which is just species survival. How is that hermitage looking now, hmmmm? Continued tomorrow.

  1. Great post.

    Off topic:
    From the book "The Reluctant Partisan: Volume Two, The Underground" by John Mosby of Mountain Guerrilla Blog.

    "Sarajevo is the capital and largest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Most famously, from 1992 to 1996, Sarajevo suffered what any self-respecing survialist would have to consider a TEOTWAWKI situation: it suffered the longest siege of a city in the history of modern warfare, for over 1400 days.
    Despite the chaos and fire: the constant threat of death from snipers and bombardment, people did not abandon the city. People don't flee cities."

    I don't know if they were unable to flee the cities. However, I hope it is true that most people will stay in the cities during collapse. I live in a rural area so want the city people to stay away.

    Does anyone have other examples of people not fleeing cities during catastrophes?

    1. Well, a siege by definition implies they won't let you out. Right? SHTF here, will city folks be kept in? One has doubts.

    2. My Lord,

      Selco, over at SHTF School, has wrote how they/a group, walked to the country side for supplies at times. It was possible. although he wrote that it was not easy.

      Have you ever read any of his stories of that time?

    5. "Ferfal" wrote, for quite a while, a blog on "Surviving In Argentina" and had to admit at the end that the chances were better in a city. Too easy for a home-invasion type scenario in the countryside. He'd seen, in Argentina, or heard about, rural places that seemed like strongholds, being taken with all hands tortured and killed, and the marauders gone before the neighbors got wind of it.

      In fact, when I lived in a smallish town south of San Jose, California, a guy living just one street or so over from where I was, had this happen. He was a known braggart, always talking about all the guns he had etc., and a bunch of Mexicans (but it could have as easily been whites or any enterprising criminal group but as usual it's the Mexicans putting in the effort no one else bothers to...) invaded his place, tortured him until he gave up the combination to his safe(s) and any other hidden treasures he had around, and they got away with some vehicles and guns and so on. They got *some* of the stuff back, and a couple of arrests I think but most of 'em got away just fine. The guy himself was so beat up and bloody, that when he got himself untied and staggered next door, the his own neighbor didn't recognize him.

      "Ferfal" eventually moved to a city in another country and I believe he said his kids really enjoyed not living in fear. I believe now he's in another city in yet another country.

      I myself, at the rural "doomstead" didn't think it was more pro-survival than the city. Too much craziness out there in banjoland.

    6. There are documentaries on the situation in Sarejevo and I believe ppl were not allowed to leave. Or they would have.

      Selco's case was a bit different; he was more rural and could move around some, but obtaining food etc meant going out in a raiding party and hoping you all came back alive.

      Delete
    7. So, you get attacked and torture in either Argentina countryside or San Jose city. No, it doesn't sound like one is better than the other. You are just reducing the number of encounters, not the danger. People being lazy, at least in the country not everyone will travel longer distances on a bet ( assuming oil shortages )

      Delete
    8. You're not getting it. The place south of San Jose was quite rural. Far more nutball-y then the city.

      Delete
    9. Okay, I misunderstood. Still, we knew how to be rural and alone against the Indians. Be armed at all times, fortify the dwelling. Situational awareness. What am I missing?

      Delete
  2. Right. I want nothing to do with any outside groups, people, or interests of any sorts. Only minimal required interactions with.gov or commercial activities just for simple functioning in society.

    Just like in Bosnia, a Minionite will get sucked into a factional or resource warfare against their desires. And it will not be an easily defined red blue team jerseys or line demarcation on the battle fields and contested turfs.

    The tptb did a swell job dividing groups and enflaming non issues into conflicts for distraction measures. Those smoke screens concealed the rape, looting, pillaging of society and systems.

    Yeah, Hermitage seems the only conceivable option the deeper into collapse we slide.

    2. Another marker is the folks on your list, the dope-fiends and bureaucrats you see daily, their families and associates.
      Irregardless of skin tone.

      A prudent list might include the grotesquely obese.
      And Gender Studies or Political Science majors with names like 'Zir' and 'They'.

  3. Food shortages have been a battle cry since the 70s population crisis argument. Globull warming just updates it. The biggest problem is it is one thing in common they get right, just not the way they claim it is going to happen. In this day and age, food shortages happen because of lack of shipment, colonization by lack of action. This will be the downfall of major metropolitan areas. How does the heritage look now?

    Not only will food be withheld, but fuel for cooking it will be also. A Vicksburg style seige these days can be accomplished by shutting off a few switches and valves. Areas like Vegas wouldn't even need any troops to enforce the seige, just let the suckers roam the desert. How many in NYC would recognize a carrot or potato in the ground if they tripped over one?

    Just remember, a bullfighter does not get old by grabbing the horns, he steps to the side and cuts the bull as it goes by. Preppers would do well by being outside the ring altogether. Ole.

  4. The cities, unless really choked off and under actual combat or conflicts will amble on along, and only have a portion of residents flee or decamp. Most cannot move unless really burned out, or are all culturally rooted in place, not knowing anything diffrrent. Ragnar Benson also advised many cities under conflict were still survivable with as many not too dissimilar problems as rurals and unicorn yuppies will also have to face.

    I may not escape from Las Vegas like Snake Plisken, but the hootenanny during collapse will be one spectacular shindig event. Plan for the spicey festivities in place, as redoubt land of manna does not exist out there. Embrace the suck.

  5. All these people preach having a group. They don't understand how the real world works. They have know idea how their best friend will act in a bad situation. I've seen the toughest sum b*tches start panicking and shaking when the lead started flying. When you tell your buddy he is chopping firewood again today, and he decides he ain't going to, you better be watching your back for the axe in it. Give to many orders and your throat will be cut in your sleep. How many people's best friend has screwed them during the good times. How about if your group has a single female, and 2 or 3 guys getting horny, I guarantee that you now have a huge problem. All the group leaders think they are the most bad ass, and will control everyone, but most people don't like bosses. In a real SHTF most groups wont last a few days before members are killing members. I will happily go it alone.

    2. Demented Guy,
      Question about your quail. I've been looking into raising them, but it seems they won't go broody and raise their own young unless they're raised in a protected "wild" environment, which I can't provide for them without a lot of work. I see most people use a incubator, which I have, but don't really want to use because it's not sustainable. Some people have broody chickens set the eggs. What breed of quail are you using, and how are you raising the chicks?

    3. You may be misunderstanding the nature of the islumists. They teach that every person, when they are born, are automatically muzzies. When they get old enough to make their own decisions, they either remain as allah made them (muzzies) or they turn away, (apostasy) and become infidels, which I hope everyone reading this falls in that second category. The penalty for apostasy is death. Rape of any man, woman, or child, is considered their just spoils. They are required to subjugate the infidel. The least subjugation is paying a tax, then being banished from the land, then being made a slave, then having opposing hands and feet chopped off, then death. If geehad is happening, there is no excuse (just married, a business to take care of, etc.) for the islumist to not participate. Per the queeran, its "hellfire" for any islumist that doesn't participate in geehad. Yes there may be resource wars that are associated reasons, but that doesn't change the primary reason for their violence, that they are a religion of violent conquest.

    4. That is still a resource control war, just institutionalized.

  6. Off topic miscellany:

    If homemade black gunpowder is of interest, the current issue of Backwoodsman (Nov/Dec 2019) has a good 6-page article.

    One thing I buy at thrift shops for next to nothing are older packs of sewing needles. Older means made in England and USA, good quality. Postindustrial trade good?
    Never saw in thrift store, but regular retail for a dozen pack of saddle stitching needles for leather work is worth it.
    (Did you have to use an awl sewing your buckskin outfit Demented Guy?)

    As a supplement to canning, a fermentation crock or two may be useful to you for future preserving. Fermenting adds nutrition to foods. The Polish or German versions with water "moat" seal around lid are great, but old style open crocks do the job too (although most old ones got pricey as wealthy pensioned boomers display them as antique decor).
    Bail-lid glass jars with the flat round rubber seal work great for small batches.

    Thanks for the good reading James and commenters.

  7. “So, you get attacked and torture in either Argentina countryside or San Jose city. No, it doesn't sound like one is better than the other.”


    To be honest, I’ve always been skeptical of the Argentinian dudes account of the collapse down there. Now I’m not saying that he lied, but there are many unknowns to the account, or at the very least, you’re comparing apples to oranges (US vs there). I don’t see bands of roving marauders cruising around in a PA society, burning up precious fuel, in hopes that they find treasure, unless of course, you’re a fool that shot his mouth off about what you had. The other thing that doesn’t add up, is it worth it to try and take over an armed compound, and expend the time and precious ammo, for anyone that presents even the least bit of resistance, when there are easier pickens elsewhere? Doesn’t make sense, but there are other questions that might shed light on the matter. How are gun rights there? My guess is that regardless, those that want them, have them. What about population density? When the Argentinian dude discusses rural areas being overtaken, what is his idea of rural? I know that the definition varies widely even here in the US (East of the Mississippi vs the west). In either event, I don’t see his account as being applicable to the US. But that’s just my opinion.

    Also, I don’t know how anyone can suggest that it’s safer to be in a city vs the country in such a scenario, where you’ve got millions of entitled asshats (whose politics reflect that they’re entitled asshats) surrounding you. Statistically, cities, pre-collapse, are far more dangerous, yet post collapse they will somehow be better? Utterly ridiculous.

    @Romans 14:11. If DG doesn’t get back to you, I’d try Stromberg’s Chickens (No affiliation). They might be able to set you in the right path, as to what birds are the easiest to raise. I’ve had both Chukar partridges and ringneck pheasants. I was informed that neither would hatch eggs while in captivity, and that an incubator and a brooder would be required. The protected "wild" environment sounds as if it would work, but as you say, it also doesn’t sound realistic short of a lot of additional resources spent.

    1. I ordered FerFals book, but never read it. As you say, it seems apples to oranges. I know there is more danger in rural areas than we are willing to admit, but I don't agree with Argentina guy that the city is safer. Unless their homes are built with much better security, and the local cops or criminal syndicate that watches over each neighborhood would respond in time. Where the country homes far less secure ( as far as bared gates and windows, etc )? As you say, we don't have the whole picture. I need answers, both here and there. I can agree in principle to either school, but the devil is in the detail.

    2. “I know there is more danger in rural areas than we are willing to admit.”


      Yeah, there definitely is Jim. There was a time when crime was practically non-existent in rural areas, and we all heard the talk about how no one locked their doors at night in most of these places. But of course, between the meth cookers, and the illegal pot farmers on public land, that’s all changed today. I personally think that it would be crazy to be trekking around the woods (oh, say even doing something as innocuous as backpacking) without packing heat these days.
