urban cattle 2


URBAN CATTLE 2
I didn't mean to leave you scratching your head yesterday, trying to appear smarter than I am by throwing up a conundrum. It was just another way of saying, “confirmation bias”. We “creatively interpret” reality to fit into our world view. And really, I think this is natural. We can't be a steely eyed unthinking robot sentinel, always alert for danger. Nor can we ignore the day to day living reality of feeding and protecting family and tribe by filling our heads with mental masturbation trying to answer all of life's unanswerable questions. We rely on others in both cases.
*
What good is society if it cannot protect you, both physically and by providing a solid worldview? I think that is the main reason I now detest both my government and half the people in this country benefiting from that government. The job of our government, ANY government, any nation, is to protect you and your family in exchange for your work and sacrifice. A half million dead veterans are tossing in their graves, their sacrifices made so that the ruling class can screw us through Political Correctness. It isn't about race or gender, but about tribe, and the government is no longer part of that.
*
Anyway, by sacrificing for the tribe, the tribe protects you, a sum greater than its parts. By finding what works for the group, and turning that into a culture, a person is protected without needing to always figure things out for themselves. They just blindly follow group dictates, and then it does NOT matter if you are blinded by confirmation bias or any other mental illness that matter today only because we have no unified tribe or culture right now. The city is one kind of tribe, and all their very bizarre behavior is tribal, as is the Rurals.
*
We aren't just asking urban dwellers to give up their tribe, to move to our perception of safety, we are assuming they COULD do so. What we see as dysfunctional behavior is normal for them ( and the other way around, obviously ). We point fingers at urbans and laugh uproariously, mocking all their behavior, but they aren't OF our tribe, are they? We think they are misinformed Americans, but they are a different tribe living in America. And those tribes self segregated. One has to wonder if preppers in the city even could move.
*
A city prepper has more excuses than Carter has liver pills ( which, obviously, pretty much kept him alive forever ). Could the real reason be that he feels more comfortable in the city, in that culture? Instead, they make up excuses. Well, I do declare, that them thar fracking oil is set to last purt near forever, I tell you what! Or, family is here. Or, money. Please understand, I'm not judging. I'm not declaring my voice the only correct one. I'm saying, giving our propensity AWAY from logic, the collapse danger is NOT looked at in anything other than an emotional lens.
*
As anyone who has read me for any amount of time knows, I am ALL about justifying my doom and gloom. I have a hundred and one reasons to panic, and I want you along for that entertaining ride. Now, how much of that is sound logical thinking, and how much of that is self justification, excusing past decisions? If I didn't think the collapse was eminent, I couldn't be excused for not living near family. If I wasn't preparing, if I didn't have an EMOTIONAL reason for prepping ( fear, which is rarely logical ), I couldn't excuse abusing former spouses.
*
All that is just to underline that when I point out the illogical reason of city dwellers for staying, I also recognize my own illogical decisions. And, in my defense, most spouses gave as good as they got, so there is that. All I'm doing here is trying to understand, not place blame or mock others. I think a huge issue in a lot of preparedness plans is the inability to judge ones own blind spots. Not to blame ones self but to work around the issue. If you are city folk, you might just need to forget a hermitage in the middle of nowhere and move to a small town.
*
When the Social Engineers had so much success pulling their levers to control people ( the Wizard Of Oz was NOT a child's book as much as it was social commentary ), taking away gold, guns and God, taking away Demon Rum, taking away free speech, taking away states control, banning isolationism, they obviously had good reason to suspect they would always be successful at it. They had stole most family farms, making a profit on it as a bonus, why not also kill the very family, shades of Stalinism.
*
FDR might not have been Uber-Evil, just “quasi-evil” ( thank you, Dr. Evil, some of the funniest comedy since Animal House, THE gold standard, and sadly, about the funniest since ), but he had a lot of like minded evil dudes behind him helping a brother out. The death of the family farm was the first shot against the people, and next up was Social Security. I'm really surprised they never got into state run nurseries as the next step. Without a farm to run, after the necessity of the Great Depression requiring doubling and tripling up on living arrangements in the factory towns, the three generation household had little reason to endure.
*
But now that grandpa was free to rot in his own mobile home in Florida, the giant engineering feat of draining the entire state of swamps and paving it over a giant retirement home manufactured from whole cloth ( look at a US map. NO other state has that kind of coastal mega-city urban zone build up. Not California, not Jersey, not Long Island ), that only left two generation homes. Which were under assault from Industrial Age economics anyway. Just to be sure, Bitches Lib cut the nuclear family off at its knees, eliminating traditional marriage and child rearing and any family unity.
*
Now folks had to look at other groups for family. And tribe, since the government was clearly the enemy now ( except to those who made it theirs, in exchange for victim money bribery ). People quickly took advantage of the Supreme Court taking away representation from rurals at the voting booth, and even formed a tribal unity with their city, both as a reward mechanism and as a defense against the hatred and resentment against them from the disenfranchised rurals. To call Las Vegas a part of Nevada, for instance, is ludicrous. They are merely a wealth pump using the rest of the state, not of the state.
*
I laugh at the Libertardians living in Las Vegas, authors who come to mind being Vin Suprynowicz ( Shotgun News columnist and 90's militia porn writer. Black Arrow being a brilliant contribution ) and J Neil Schulman ( Rainbow Cadenza-he just died, to no reports. I had no idea until just now ). They are living in the least free area of the state, a state which has a sordid history of coasting on prior achievements, one being that they were ONCE Libertarian ( a few RINO governors killed off that past ), and the area is blessed economically by rural rapine.
*
Sorry, but yeah, don't get me started on ex-wives or most voters in cities. Let's just cut it off here and continue tomorrow.

  1. Wonderful essay, Jim. Thank you for writing it. Parts of the second and third paragraph hopefully to appear in the next Woodpile Report.

    I picked up on a quote on Bracken's Gab: "You do realize that Democrats voted to penalize citizens if they didn't buy insurance and now offer it free to illegals. Let that sink in." I was thinking about that and remembering how the CA DMV rejected my original birth certificate for a Real ID, and made me write to the Commonwealth of PA to get a new one. And the new state I am hoping to move to won't accept a Social Security card for auto registration and license unless "it has the pillars on it." Citizens get the 3rd degree while illegals get free and easy.

    You are correct in all of your observations, just as those who have been saying, "They want to replace us," are not being superstitious or paranoid.

    Regarding children of divorce, my own always went to mom's first for holiday affairs since her 2nd and 3rd husbands provided nicer digs, grandma and grandpa, and a full banquet. It wasn't personal, just kids wanting those trappings. I wonder if in Spicy Times I will be asked to expand the invitation? The place I most likely will move into has lots of room for wheat buckets in the house. I hope the floors are strong enough to handle the weight. I wish I had bought a pickup truck instead of the AWD car.

  2. It is hard for me to think of city living in tribal terms. Not when the standard mantra seems to be do unto others, then split. Maybe a form of resource sharing but no tribal unity except for maybe gangs or group speak cliches that tend to devour each other as soon as a new development comes along.

    State run nurseries never came along? These kids are spoon fed government mantra from kindergarten all the way to college. There is no dissent allowed along the way without danger of CPS stepping in and removing the kiddos to state approved parentage.

    YouTube has a few urban preppers on it, but their views hardly jive with Ferfal's account of how things really go down. Reading about the Seige of Vicksburg and Stalingrad should discourage or at least modify their preps. When wearing body armor to get water out of a ditch is a recommended tactic you need to reconsider your plans.

    1. Okay, granted, public school is a hidden nursery, but I'm speaking more of "pop the kid, go back to producing tanks for the Motherland, we'll raise your newborn for you during the day"

  3. Under the best circumstances our son and family are at least 30 mins from a major highway, on a disaster day it ain't gonna happen. They live in a very large subdivision city, Cape Coral, FL. He's armed but has little experience in most everything, is a colleged programmer. I have asked him how he'll get out when the shit goes down and he scoffs, doesn't believe anything like that will happen. He is so under educated in current events it's not really possible to get him up to speed. Maybe, if he lived close by I could teach him, but he's a thousand miles away and handcuffed by his wife's underpants. When the infrastructure goes there will be no connection between him and us and there is nothing I can do about it. So I have vested myself in the truth that from here on out my family consists of my wife and I and nobody else exists except criminals. Tribe? Just the 2 of us, and 1 of them might be a quisling. You never really know anybody. People are versatile and circumstances can instantly change everything. If you are not mentally prepared to go it alone you will most likely become extinct. Peace, out.

    1. I've been ready for a very long time. Ha ha , ready to pass away peacefully in my sleep... Leaving all those bazillion preps to the fortunate bastards whom discover them first. The fact that others might get my preps , doesn't bother me whatsoever.
      Because if I die a natural death , being fully prepped.
      It means I won the game...

  4. I have been in the City for a few weeks. I'm afraid for my aging parents who won't leave. God I hate it. Everywhere I go I see shady mother fer's just looking to take down their next score. I feel like a target walking to the mailbox. Less than a month and I can return to my woods. Secure inside the Ferro Fortress with a fire until Spring.

    1. I've noticed more scumbags hanging about, and this is more a town than a city. Of course, honestly, middle class types sharing the sidewalk with me and I get nervous.

    2. The nearest town to me is 30 minutes away and has about 2000 people. People who live in the "downtown" area (3 traffic lights) say that in the last few years there has been a big increase in homeless people and therefore crime.

      The main reason the homeless stay here is because of the free food from the food bank in town. Also "Christian charities" that give them clothes, drug treatment help, etc.

      The locals create their own destruction by helping the destitute. They need to understand the r/K theory.

    3. Of course, come the time, an easy problem to solve if needs be. Follow your nose to their tents. Flamethrower, meet greasy combustible people.

    4. Demented Guy, on any of your properties, are you getting water from a stream, lake, or river, or from a well?

  5. I hate going into the city too, DG, but I just go in looking like a scumbutt and talking to myself all the time and they all avoid me. . .gotta look crazier than them, they don't know what to do with that. . .
