urban cattle 3


URBAN CATTLE 3
I think a lot of people now prefer the suburbs to the country, or the city. You avoid the danger of the city proper ( not that suburbs are completely safe, the comparison is relative ), but you avoid people, mostly. Each little domicile ship is adrift in a fleet, no others daring to board a smaller boat to intrude on your existence. When not safely cocooned in their own little universe of the suburban McMansion, they are safe in their car ( the real reason no one will give them up, as they are a security blanket ), tucked away snug in their Happy Place. If circumstances force social interaction, such as the grocery store, they cocoon in their Dumb Phone.
*
The alienating factor of the suburbs Kunslter bemoans is the exact reason folks are attracted. People don't want to socialize, because we don't have any tribe anymore. They are strangers, and as hundreds of thousands of years of hunter-gathering ( and proto-villages dedicated to beer manufacturing ) existence have hard wired into our pea brains, Stranger is Danger. Now, I'll be the first to admit, family, nine times out of ten, sucks bloated plague ridden donkey scrotum.
*
Family feels the license to use you, lie to you, treat you like dirt and then they feel justified in doing all that AGAIN, because you hurt their feelings by not accepting that and refuse to return for another helping of fecal sandwich. “WELL! I never! What's her problem? Family is supposed to help each other out” she said, after “forgetting” to pay back a loan, and then asking for another one. Yeah, family sucks. But they only treat you like that because they have a fall-back of Uncle Sugar if you disown them.
*
When there was no welfare, your family was THE only safety net, and you never burnt that bridge. Not that welfare in and of itself is bad. I have an issue with the federal government who let a lot of folks die from malnutrition during the Great Depression, then turned right around and expected everyone to die to fight for the bankers rights to profit ( while true that without the war the Depression never would have ended, the Federal Reserve being created caused the Depression ). You can offer welfare while leaving the family strong. Or not, as ours was structured.
*
The problem wasn't welfare in and of itself, but rather welfare made for the exact purpose of destroying the family. Blacks and Hispanics retain family ( although the Black ones changed into a matriarchy ) despite welfare because of the open hostility of the surrounding society. Whites have only recently been turned on and have not developed a cultural response, yet ( it was Trojan Horse'ed in as benefits, while Whites had no PERCEIVED enemies ). Whether there will be time for that is an open question. I think not. But my timing has sucked before.
*
Without family, urban life isn't such a bad deal. You are already alone. The city gives the illusion of companionship, even if everyone is selfish and platitudes abound. Any illusion is better than reality. And despite how much it cost to live there, by being in the city your personal economy crashes LAST. I don't think it is the job situation as much as the fact that any rural area ONLY offers poverty ( as the wealth is stolen by the city ), where in the city your poverty is not quite as bad. You have the glittery unicorn illusion of being LESS screwed.
*
And then there are sunk costs, every penny, regardless of income, going to support yourself living in the city. There is nothing to save, so as to escape. You have to convince yourself that staying is a good thing, as if you had a choice. Poverty is easier in the country, because it is actually feasible to live on nearly zero. In the city, who either spend everything scraping by, or live homeless. In the country, you can invest in living on nearly nothing, if you can escape the zoning and regulation police. In the city? It is too easy to get caught, if you even have the option of opting out of ANY monopoly service.
*
The suburbs DEMAND a middle class income. The city DEMANDS a middle class income, even if that only buys a poor boys standard of living. In both cases, you are demonstratively employed and of the preferred socio-economic class. Why would you WANT to move to a rural area and send the signal you want to be poor? Women are VERY class conscience, as they move UP, unless they can't. Now do you wonder why the wife won't move out to the country with you? It isn't about “roughing it”, it is about social standing.
*
Not to say men can be any better. They might simply assume your sweet ass is going to leave them, trading up. Then, they don't want to trade DOWN, in your replacement. They can be just as shallow with money. But it isn't greed. It is peacock feathers. Let's face it, city or rural living isn't about much of anything important, except monkey hierarchy. Which is the ONLY important thing, to most folks. People do live dangerously, to position advantageously socially. That is just the way the Monkey Brain rolls.
*
As you can see, it isn't any ONE thing, but many different factors, causing the cattle to stampede into urban areas. Or, same difference, make them want to stay. It has nothing to do with a cost benefit calculation according to collapse danger. If the cost is too great, they just recalculate the danger downward. Look, nothing to see here! Fracking is approved by the federal government, so it must be good for us! Can we have some Fuki radiation you no longer monitor for, also? Yummy! Why, I trust whatever the government tells me because they are my friend! Why, I imagine that diversity is my strength.
*
Exactly. WHY? Dumb ass. You just want to stay in the city because some schmuck in rural land is subsidizing your job ( if they don't like it, let them eat crack cocaine! ), making you feel superior as if you had anything to do with that wealth pump. All of America used to be that pump, but fifty years of Not Winning has narrowed it down to approved sanctuary cities. Enjoy your choice, but don't expect it to last. The rurals will survive, not because they are superior or better ( ALL cultures view themselves as such ), but because they are collapsing now and avoiding the rush. Enjoy your Starbucks!

  2. A person's inferiority complex dictates their lifestyle in all things. Fear, above all else. In urbania the fear is spread thin through the many layers of safety net. Fear of being hungry? Go get an EBT card. Fear of sleeping in the cold? Get housing assistance. Etc., etc. Yes, that safety net is available in ruralville but navigating the layers of gov't to gain access to that safety net is time consuming and out here in the sticks there are faster means to acquire what you need or want.

    Plus, why settle for one safety net in urbania when you can have many here in ruralville? IOW, why put all your eggs in 1 basket carried by irresponsible and unaccountable gov't drones?

    I have never lived in urbania but lived most of my life in suburbania and never really felt comfortable there. That safety net is a double edged sword and it's backswing is devastating. While I never voluntarily engaged the foreswing of the safety net I was deeply injured by it's backswing many times. Out here in the fields, I fight for my meals (thank you Roger Daltry) and the killing radius of the backswing is much smaller. It's easier to avoid danger, in all of it's forms here, and that by itself has great value for people like myself that aren't really interested in social norms or convenience.

    Studies have shown that the acceptance of handouts destroys people inside because it establishes, publicly, that one is incompetent to provide for theirself. Mental slavery. The longer a person stays involved with that safety net the deeper their enslavement and some never break free nor want to. They have become draft animals that are never worked. Easily led by, and dependent upon, the hand that feeds them. Like being in prison but with a long leash rather than walls.

    People talk about being free but true freedom terrifies them. Freedom requires a self made safety net and for more than 100 years now most people have been trained to believe they are incapable of doing that and their built-in laziness prefers the safety net of others. Most people today, especially in urbania and suburbania, are hollow clones of each other and their decimation will be a good thing.

    1. EBT card, housing, all of that is hard as hell to get. If you earn anything at all your EBT will be $10 a month. They'll make you jump through a million hoops to get it and then a million more to keep it. You're better off squeegee'ing, panhandling, washing windows or learning to do that window lettering, anything.

      Where housing and EBT shine are where children come into the picture. If you're unfortunate enough to be saddled with children in this dystopia, you'll have a hard time raising them if you're in the bottom 90%, without making a career of working the system.

      In a culture where family means nothing and competition is cut-throat even within a family (parents competing with kids for jobs, kids competing with each other) your best move is to not perpetuate it - don't have kids. Participate in the system as little as possible.

  4. We have a large ranch house here on the farm my oldest daughter raised her family in . Since her family bought their own homestead around the bend we have rented it repeatedly to quite a few city folk looking to move into the country . The story doesn't change . They discover that they spend more time in the city plus traveling back and forth . The firewood is too hard . The drive is too long,steep,and snowy . Water should taste like bleach . one year has been the longest so far . I am starting to see why all the tax cattle are in the cities ! Lazy,stupid,and mostly mudsharks with no morals !

      They ended up moving back to the city because it was far cheaper, they used far less, worked less etc.

    3. You're right. The multitude of today's conveniences have made life very convenient for most people and that has made them lazy. Frequently my suggestion for all these antifa people is to be assigned a mandatory job at very hard labor for 6 months and maybe they'll learn to appreciate how good they have it.

      The road I live on is 2.5 miles long and has about 22 houses on it but less than half of them are lived in by full time residents. The rest are investment rentals that city folk rent on a daily-weekly-month rate to "experience" the hardship and novelty of rural living, then go back to their urban leash. For us that live here, we get solace Mon-Fri because the rentals are vacant then the lots of road traffic over the weekends. This is part of the reason why we are seeking acreage elsewhere. It wasn't like this when we moved here almost 14 years ago but has developed slowly since then. I shudder to think what it will be like in another 14 years.

      When I told my father in law I was fed up with people and was moving to the country, 14 years ago, he asked, "Where are you going to go? The idiots will follow wherever you go." I didn't believe him then but I do now.

  5. Actually in the Depression, Hoover, good right-thinking White guy that he is, let millions starve. Roosevelt, crypto-Jew that he may have been and hated by right-thinking Whites, gave us most of the programs millions of Whites depend on now, and saved millions of lives in the Depression once Hoover was out.

    My old next door neighbors in California: She was the child of a guy who worked as a carpenter repairing train cars. They were 7th Day Adventists and although very poor, went out to feed those even poorer every week. He was in the Navy and in on the D-Day invasion. As far as they were concerned, FDR hung the sun and the moon, and you could say no wrong about him or either one of 'em would kick your ass.

    I don't think people understand how hard those times were. Although it looks like we may be in for a repeat.

    1. FDR was likewise viewed favorably by my father ( though an infant when the cockroach died ), and dad is one smart dude. He is also a product of his time, more trusting of Big Daddy Gov. I don't necessarily view Democrats negatively. Before the 1960's, they were a necessary counterpoint. They weren't always commies. And folks do remember the help. They just don't know the deeper story.

    2. FDR just jumped on the bandwagon which was put in motion by Morgan and the rest of the Jekyll Island gang. The Sixteenth and Seventeenth Amendments sealed our fate, politically, and that was before Hoover even took his place in history.

    3. I view FDR as an evil man, with no excuses such as "we were screwing folks over before he was elected". If he did nothing else, he killed 2k servicemen so as to have an excuse to start a war. Which killed how many hundreds of thousands more? Taking everyone's gold and locking up Japanese born in America-how do you excuse that level of Constitutional rape? Now, I understand what you are saying. Those before him and after him were just as evil. What about those humpers at Enron, for instance? What FDR did that was worse was simply to affect so many more people. Probably more than all others combined. I also understand he was just a puppet. But when everyone celebrates a puppet, I must attribute the evils to them, also.

    4. Marxists are gonna be Marxists regardless of 1619, FDR, etc. The founders were so right about so many things. They did their best research on all of the different regimes going back thousands of years. Jefferson said it best when he talked about watering the tree of liberty. We didn’t expect it in our lifetimes but here it is, my friend.

    7. We never discussed that one. I imagine he would have excused that also. Still a smart guy, my dad, but we all have our blinders, and he was more the action Alpha dude than an intellectual pondering crap that didn't interest him. Po mouthing FDR didn't really interest him :)

  6. Just a few thoughts, Jim.

    I don't see the distinction between LA and the suburbs. Urban sprawl describes so Cal suburbs.

    Downtown LA has changed around Staples Center and the Convention Center. The diversity seemed to disappear. When I asked my son he attributed it to gentrification. Some of us notice that the diversity has found its way into the suburbs, but the urbanites love gentrified cities. My son added that the diversity didn't appreciate it.

    In researching rural towns outside bigger rural towns/cities, I noticed in one case a ~ 30% poverty rate in the statistics, yet when I saw the town up close, it didn't look like poverty. I was told that the folks are simply self-sufficient, small government libertarians who hide what they truly earn. I will take my chances with the threat of a few rather than millions who might behave like the crack head in a moment's notice.

    Good post.

    1. Daytona Beach Florida was similar. Several tiny cities merged together. Reno and Sparks also merged over the years. It makes sense what was once suburbs are now de facto city.

  8. When I am in the city, living in the van and working at slave labor, I am looked at as a homeless scumbag. But when I'm on my land, living in my Ferro craphole, unemployed, I am looked at by people as a hard working go getter. I am treated as a human who can be trusted and respected even though they know I am the poorest in the area.

  9. 1998, we thought Cottage Grove Oregon would be a nice place to settle.
    The population was around 1,800 rednecks.
    Sound ideal?
    Then we read about the new bond for the new government school.
    Enough delusionoids voted, and the dang thing passed.
    During construction, I kept thinking it looks more like a penitentiary than a place for creative learning.
    The finished monstrosity is massive.
    I remember reading it contains 3,000 children.

    Compare the 2016 population of one of several government schools in one town to the 1998 population of the entire town.

    I often mention Dorena Reservoir and its silting problem.
    The Row River through the reservoir is the only source of drinking water for Cottage Grove.
    Population of the proposed urban growth area is >80,000 and growing.

    I blame soy.

  10. Your description of "family" is amazingly like mine. I fell for it for decades. When I was single with out children I loaned them money, worked on their houses for free, etc. When I started raising my own family and building my own house they did nothing to help out. In fact they were pissed of that I stopped "helping" them. Like I owed them to let them screw me over. One brother called our mother a c**t because she put a stop to her largesse. When I told him I would kick his ass if he did it again he pepper sprayed me.
