soft secession 5


SOFT SECESSION 5
Yeoman farming, today. No, I'm not an expert in the subject. Certainly not in the forebears over in England, nor in the pre-Revolution era here. I think this is going to be my new Deep Study project. James LeFond has a whole series on “plantation America” which looks intriguing. The history of the colonies not as such, but as slave plantations. It seems there were more white slaves than a simple indentured servant contract for passage would account for. Unfortunately, I think I picked up the wrong book in the series of about a dozen, which is more like reference to an already established theme than the starter book itself.
*
No worries there, as I am tickled pink I can support an author directly, a step above Kindle, so the money spent wasn't the issue. It is more the lust for understanding, money be damned. Ultimately with some of those books, as well as Rothbard's “Conceived In Liberty”, I want to gain a better understanding of the history before the Revolution. Who was in control, the money interests, a better picture of the poor and working class. The difference in the classes and cultures. And I want a REAL history of how we came to all bear arms. We are fish in water, largely unaware of how rare and special that freedom is.
*
Nomads or even non-centralized states have always been armed and independent, but that is not my focus. Nor are pre-firearms weapons. Armed men in a nation state is my focus. I knew I needed more research here, but until now didn't have a reference book to start. There have been teasers in books debunking a lot of the Black Slave mythology ( hopelessly poisoned by Federal government propaganda justifying subjugating states and individual rights ), but it never explored deep enough. So, my previous attempts at covering this, as well as this one, are by necessity incomplete.
*
All this background to promise more, better, at a later date, and to apologize for my perfunctory knowledge here. If you don't know that you don't know, well... Anyway, to the best of current knowledge, a history of armed America. I've said that the rich elite in this country armed the militia for the express purpose of having a free army. Mainly to displace the Indians for more land, which was wealth. Remember, we had been settling this rock for two and a half centuries prior to the Revolution. A good two centuries which were pre-Industrial Revolution. Land, not industry, was wealth.
*
What I missed was the possibility a good deal of the activity of this militia was in tracking down slaves-which were mostly White rather than Indian or Black, for some time. The first Black slave took a century to show up. With all the mental midgets trying to steer Political Correctness into a Globalist Apologist direction, the 9% strawboss class deliberately confusing race with class, acting as if skin color superseded wealth, the discussion of slavery never takes on any glimmer of reality. Slavery does and will happen, because it is free energy.
*
Energy is wealth. Hence, slavery is normal, except for our century and a half of Petroleum Slaves. Don't think that the underclass nominally free and armed weren't part of the system of slavery. They were soldier slaves, a Janissary class. They were enslaved by those controlling the financial system, and they in turn fought the indigenous population and any actual slaves attempting to flee or be free. And western expansion did have an element of fleeing slaves. Not a romantic vision of armed freemen, is it?
*
So this line of thinking is dangerous, both to the elite and to the patriots who thought that a right springs from the hand of god, rather than being birthed in blood. If I piss off commies AND gun owners alike, this research will be well worth my time! I don't think many of you comprehend the vicious delight of slaughtering sacred cows! It clenches my sphincter. But let us continue, with the fleeing slaves now armed and either joining Indian tribes or killing them to settle in the mountains, trying to remain free of the plantation owners. Would this not account for the conflict between the rich and the poor, far better than in mere monetary terms?
*
When today we speak in rhetoric about communists enslaving us, do we even realize we are channeling our folk history of the rich coastal elite working the poor Whites, yes-the Deplorables, to an early grave? Have things changed in the slightest? Is being armed, living in a financial system that enslaves us, allowing us to live free, or is it all a mere illusion? I stipulate to you all that it is an illusion. A dangerous illusion, as we think the apocalypse will be dwelt with our rifles, holed up in our compounds.
*
Both Rawlsians and homesteaders share this delusion, that patrols outside our fences will keep us free, as long as the ammunition lasts. You might want to ask the Indians how that worked out for them. Hint, it didn't. It wasn't superior firepower that defeated them. They were armed with the same weapons. It was demographics and excess energy ( in the form of carbon fuels ). Ah-HA!, you proclaim. Jim, you are always yammering on about Peak Oil. Now everyone will be on an equal playing field.
*
Or will they? Anarchy will not rule the land, each lot of land an autonomous unit impervious to assault. Not unless that land is up in the mountains, AND lacks a strategic advantage the lowlanders desire. Then you are impoverished from lack of trade. Appalachian folk were dirt poor not just from substandard soil, but from their need for trade goods, with little to trade in turn. Survivalists think they will live dependent on machinery and fuel and industrial goods, and still remain free? And unless you devolve into Stone Age tools, you'll retain a vulnerability. Blacksmithing only takes you so far, and certainly NOT into a precision machine tool existence.
*
You don't think the surviving elite from today won't have control of the means of surplus energy to continue at a higher level of manufacturing? I'll leave it at that.  End series.

note: according to one much smarter than myself in economics, the US is already Japan ( in its decades long economy after its 80's peak ).  But the differences are why we will see inflation.  Hyper-inflation when the PetroDollar collapses ( he doesn't get into that, just mentioning it the last minute of the video-but think about it.  If oil demand crashed 70-80%, how many dollars do fuzzy foreigners need, to buy oil?  You know the answer! ).  George Gammon, about 20 minutes long HERE

    I agree freedom exists only if you constantly fight for it.

    I look forward to your articles on your new research. Thank you for great writing.

    1. I've read the first book, and got little more out of it than what was in the introduction. Mostly the crap some of you clamor for, "proof" of an idea ( what happens when the primary sources are wrong? For instance, "dino's to oil" is from one theory 150 years ago, taken as gospel ). A 300 page book ( Kindle pages, granted ) and 50 are poems from the era written in that stilted language. First you must translate that into modern English, then translate all the word meanings ( "well regulated" in the 2nd Ammend. means "well trained and equipped" ). The book was "The Greatest Lie Ever Sold". Another one I got free with the purchase is "40,000 Years From Home", much better written, but off topic ( nature of male violence ). Next book purchase is "Cracker Boy", which looks far more promising.

  2. Right. Post collapse when everything grinds up to failed state deprivations, there may be a need arise for fuedalism type structures. The strong man or Bison Empire Armies just use brute force to corral and dominate their areas, ghengis khan like. A city state or cantons type of secession break up will occur. Using scraps of the oil age and dismantling of the cities resources. Military, industry, technocrat types will be the lords and knights landed gentry and enforcers for their areas or operations. Some will be Like hudson bay type of business that conquers and extracts resource wealths, while choking and control the trade flow as a spice route racket. Globalism will collapse, followed on by these macro supra-states, as they also self immolate themselves from bad management practices. Changes are coming for sure folks. Stay flexible and frosty

  3. As a kid, I worked at Yogi Bear Hamburgers.
    I walked the grounds in a bear suit with yuge bear head carrying a picnic-basket of tiny toys to hand out to the kids.
    The owners made an excellent burger using an electric grill instead of the burger-joint standard of a yuge griddle.
    The buns had toasted onions baked on top.
    A splash of barbecue sauce, and Bob's your uncle.
    Natch, as I read 'forebears', I immediately went to Yogi and BooBoo.

    Your linked book AMERICA IN CHAINS is authored by James LaFond.
    Another treasure by him is YOUR TROJAN WHORSE describing the four female archtypes.
    Pointing a finger at 'those other people' in imagined superiority, your humble correspondent is vastly amused.

  5. Having better tech will always gain advantage over the lessors. At one on one odds...even five on one will usually lose to the one. Key is to share the knowledge , of course only to start the cycle of continuous growth which is always non sustainable on finite resources. Eventually the cities will be mined to rubble. Ultimately leaving zero trace of our existence. Wonder if we will leave relics of our civilization too ?

  6. However long ago I bought one of LaFonds hand2hand fighting tactics books...

    It was exactly like reading his website! Same format and comments style. Great content but you had to bob and weave to find it! Sure it was worth it for the offline storable information but it felt like he cheated. Totally unlike a "real" book.

    Just make a book out of web content bro! Don't bother reformating it bro... I wonder if all his books are like that?

    He's a smart dood so I'm glad to support him.

    1. It's a lot of copy and paste, added info in between. I grant you, perhaps not conventional. I think a good comparison is to Kurt Saxon's books, saving old info with some of his own input. I think he has improved from his earlier books though.

  8. Hello Bison. Been working at ferro cementing the underground dome on property #2. I got the spring boxed in and water running to a sink. I ended up covering the whole dome with about 4 to 6 inches of cement and a foot to two foot of dirt.
    I'm back at the #1 property to eat ice cream and use the internet because it's my birthday and I needed a break from working my butt off.
    Was catching up my reading and saw a few days ago the star plate ferro discussion. In my opinion the cement sheets doesn't work because the weight of the wet cement deforms the fabric to much. Also on a star plate half of the walls lean out and the fabric pulls away from the 2 by 4's. (it's to heavy) I installed cheap ply wood and then the mesh when I applied the cement. The more layers of mesh with the cement is where you get the thickness and strength. I used three layers of mesh stapled and screwed tight on my starplate. I wish I could post pics of my (King Kong took a crap looking) home.

    On the buried dome I used three layers of mesh on the inside and then cemented the inside. When it was cured I started mixing cement and pouring over top, and then would throw pieces of mesh and rebar in and press them in by hand or foot. I used the old metal clothes hanging pipes like grandma had in the back yard to dry clothes that look like a big T,to run my vent pipes to. I need to finish the dirt work next trip. I would bet money that the dome would hold 3 feet of dirt on top but I'm going to start with a foot for now.
    I will be around for a couple days before I take off again if I can answer any questions that the guy thinking about the starplate has. Demented Guy

    1. The video I got the idea for the cement sheet was just a quick mention, no details. What you're saying makes sense. I was trying to avoid plywood, but perhaps thats a pipe dream. Thanks a million-appreciate boots on the ground

    2. The sheets will work in areas where weight and gravity wont deform it. But they usually use burlap. Burlap is very porous so the cement gets in between the fibers, and soak up the cement better. Fiberglass mesh screen also works good and I have seen deer netting used.
      A metal mesh like hardware cloth is best for holding its shape in places where gravity and weight of the cement will distort the mesh.
      My first dome was starplate and works but I think inferior to the new conduit dome. All the triangles and ferro cement make this dome so strong.On the conduit dome the longest struts were under 4 foot.
      I backpacked in all the struts and nuts and bolts on a alice pack frame. Built a shelf on the frame and carried in each bag cement. This allowed me to build in a area that can't be drove to. Also I didn't use a single power tool. Dug the hole by hand built the frame inside hole. Attached the hardware cloth with wire ties. Pour cement floor. Mix and apply cement inside on hardware cloth. Start mixing and dumping cement on outside adding metal wire fencing pushed into cement. Covered with plastic and tarps then dirt.

  10. I understandstand "maff" is difficult for you Lord Bison but Anglo America was not settled 2 1/2 centuries before the Revolution. Hint: Jamestown 1609.

    Next, first African slaves didn't take a century to arrive in Anglo America, they arrived in Virginia in 1619 near Jamestown.

    Second, you state the "rich elite in this country armed the militia for the express purpose of having a free army". NO!
    Trust me I've seen the "paperwork". Militia provided their own weapons and supplies. During 3rd Powhatan Indian war (1670s?) in Virginia Colony & Crownland of N. Carolina my ancestors supplied their own weapons plus had to put forth tobacco, corn, powder or specie (rare) as a 'tax' to pay other costs like bribing other Indian tribes. After Powhatans slaughtered over 300 English settlers and families across southern Tidewater the war was on.
    Like I said I've seen facsimilies of the muster rolls and the war 'subscription' logs showing what & who put forth. The subscription was based on your owned land usually. No rich elite paid them or equipped them. At most Royal Governor might have provided some additional powder.
    Of course, the derelict lower classes didn't enroll as they had nothing to contribute. Probably as often as not those types went along with the Indians on the hope of raiding and plundering their 'betters'. Dont get caught up in the notion that rigid race/class lines existed. Nor were the Indians some noble race. They were savage murdering, double dealing, treaty breaking mofos. Drug thugs in Detroit are a better class of people.

    A similar scenario played out decades later in the 18th C during the Tuscarrowa (sp?) War. Local farmers and plantantion owners (I aint talking "Gone with the wind") did the mustering and Indian killing. The elites were bumbling fools.

    Those settlers didn't have enough guns, powder and swords..Thank God for smallpox, measles, diptheria & influenza.

    1. You are correct about "armed" I should have said "authorized". I never thought the Indians were from a Kevin Costner movie :) People are people and all act the same. Whites here were the same as in Oz, shipped over as a punishment colony. The difference was that the resources here were much better than there, and the transportation costs better. Some others were indentured, but some crimes in England called for more than seven years here. LeFond claims it wasn't until reward prices dropped for Whites and increased for Blacks that White slavery was replaced by Black. I don't care about that, true or not. My interest is in the centuries prior to the Revolution, and the power structures. Number one, I want to find the origin of militias and hence the authorization to be armed, and two, to get more proof what a twat Washington was. Just because I have a bee in my bonnet over him. You are correct about the settlers being outnumbered. Too little militia. But don't remember the Indians populated more at sustainability levels and the Whites overpopulated. It wasn't just White disease.

  11. Black slavery to Anglo America picked up after the Restoration of Charles II. The men (Cavaliers) who supported him during his French exile during the Civil War had to be paid back. They had plans to turn English possessions in Caribbean into corporate sugar plantations.
    Sugar was the cocaine of 17th C.
    Charles signed off on new land grants & taxing privileges to those 'proprieters'. Massive fortunes and complex international financing of shipping, slaves and processing equipment were negotiated and put in motion. Fascinaiting story actually.
    Once that process started in Caribbean the spillover hit N. America too

    I could yak your ear off about the implementation of African slavery into Barbados, the subsequent wholesale population transfer of white yeomanry from there to the Carolinas and my family's involvement in transshipment of some of the thousands of white yeoman to new homes in Virginia and especially S. Carolina.
    Barbados went from an all white British yeoman settlement to a black slave plantation in about 30 years. Population replacement writ large.
    In many respects the history of S. Carolina is the story of a Barbados bastard.

    1. I did read the history of sugar ( "sweetness and power" ) and it was fascinating. The history of white slaves by LeFond, not as much. He is trying to prove his case rather than making the story interesting. He was talking about in one year there were a total of 5k blacks to the states, but one state alone ( Virginia ) had 20k Irish. His claim is that "servant" was a euphemism for slave ( in that there were few rights and they could be literally worked and malnourished to death before the end of the seven years, AND being homeless and penniless after your term could get you convicted for yet another term ). I think he's on to something, but don't buy into his premise completely. And I'm finding nothing on militias or bondsmen and escaping slaves. But at least the research area is new and exiting. Not sure how I was off on my math. Not 250 years of colonies prior to Revolution, but 150. And the majority of blacks in the last fifty, early 18th century, if he is right. He wasn't saying no Blacks as much as almost none. Blacks were more profitable as they were lifers, and they could breed replacements. But they didn't dominate slavery until Whites were no longer as profitable.

    2. 'Indentured' Irish is interesting subject. Many of them in Caribbean were captives sent there as a result of Oliver Cromwell's attacks in Ireland and the expansion of 'The Pale'.

      I can't comment if those Irish in N. America came from Cromwell's 'pacification' program. I'm thinking probably NOT. The Tidewater region still had plenty of white indentures plus, most importantly, the people of that region were opposed to Cromewll and the Parlimentarian religious nuts. The Tidewater was colonized by the 2nd and 3rd sons of low level aristocrats & gentry, mainly from England's West Country. That class was firmly Royalists and I cant imagine them lending any support to Cromwell by taking in Irish captives in any appreciable numbers.

      But back to Caribbean Irish....they hung on an remained a separate and pretty identifiable subset within Barbados, Jamaica etc for almost two hundred years. They were called "redlegs". Pretty much the dregs of island life (kinda like their same named brethern in Army artillery units 😉).

      Finally they were genetically overwhelmed by the African majority. But their presence lingers on in the high rate of redheaded & freckled blacks in Jamaica. The famous "high yellow gals".
