“It doesn’t matter if it’s an EMP, solar flare, earthquake, global financial crash or pandemic that causes a societal collapse. When the grid goes down and the lights go out, many won’t be prepared.”
“Even with advanced warning of an impending winter storm or hurricane, the News routinely shows people running, last minute to the store for basic supplies. Humans for the most part, are unprepared, reactionary creatures and store shelves don’t hold enough supplies for everyone.”
Panic buying – The vast majority of people in the U.S. are non-peppers. When panic sets in, herd mentality takes over and they rush all at once to the grocery store to buy everything all at the same time.
These brand new “instant preppers” put a huge strain on our just in time supply chain. Like I said, store shelves do not hold enough supplies for everyone.
This first effects the metro areas where the population in dense.It takes a couple of days but thanks to the main-stream media and social networks, this panic buying spreads to the small town grocery store as well.
What happens next is this, once the supplies run out in the metro areas, raiding parties from the cities decent into the country side to continue their panic buying in the small towns.
People (mostly women) right now, have Facebook groups, where they share information like an invading army and post the tactical locations of stores that have supplies, like diapers, toilet paper, milk, bread, eggs, and other staples.
Local peasants go to their small country grocery store or market and see an unusual amount of out of state license plates in the parking lot and the store filled with wide eyed, strange faces frantically pushing piled high shopping carts down the isles.
My recommendation is to not be out in the stores topping off your supplies when the fear stricken masses have descended like locusts into the grocery stores and gas stations.
Fear and panic compromises the reasoning and decision making centers of the brain in people.
In short, they become more dangerous.
If you haven’t read “The SHTF Art of War” yet, and want to understand how your fellow man will change when the lights go out, fear not. You can get it immediately with no waiting on KINDLE.
A valuable lesson can be learned from observing how (non-prepper) women, as well as feminists (both female and male) fail in the art of war with President Trump.
“It is only one who is thoroughly acquainted with the evils of war that can thoroughly understand the profitable way of carrying it on.” -Sun Tzu, the Art of War
In politics, you don’t win unless you’re on the offensive. The mistake liberals and feminists are making is assuming Trump is a racist fool.
His statements and tweets are designed to have an outcome beyond the outrage from the left and media.
Look beyond the emotional reaction of his next offensive tweet or TV appearance (he’s sure to make one) and see the true result of his strategy.
The fail with social justice warriors, liberals and feminists is their lack of ability to see past their outrage and indignation.Their thin skin and delicate sensibilities are their weakness.
Trump repeatedly exploits their emotions with crushing effect.
“Never hate your enemies. It affects your judgment.” -Mario Puzo The Godfather
This is why his tactic works. He evokes outrage in his opponents. He causes people to be so upset that they’re too busy defending themselves, virtue signaling and calling him names that they miss his true purpose. It pains me to see the people who dislike him fall for this tactic over and over again.
“There is no greater danger than underestimating your opponent.” – Lao Tzu
Here’s why they can’t learn from their mistake.
They can’t separate the emotion from the tactic.They won’t give credit where it’s due and this blinds them to see it coming again. They feel that acknowledging the effectiveness of the tactic gives it their “ok”.
Here’s an example: For them, giving credit to an abuser for controlling someone through abuse is the same as agreeing with the abuser.
For them, the mere acknowledgment that the threats of violence or actual physical abuse that an abusive person uses to make someone do a certain thing or feel a certain way to get results is the exact same thing as them condoning and being complicit with the abuse or violence.
The way they “feel” takes priority over facts.The way they “feel” is more important even if it goes against reason, logic and observable reality.
“Violence is the gold standard, the reserve that guarantees order. In actuality, it is better than a gold standard, because violence has universal value. Violence transcends the quirks of philosophy, religion, technology and culture. People say that music is a universal language, but a punch in the face hurts the same no matter what language you speak or what kind of music you prefer. If you are trapped in a room with me and I grab a pipe and gesture to strike you with it, no matter who you are, your monkey brain will immediately understand “or else what.”And thereby, a certain order is achieved.” – Jack Donovan
These liberal minded, emotional people are a danger to you during a crisis.
These types of women (and men) will not be able to control their emotions. They will panic and become angry.
Not everybody has abstract thinking, forethought or awareness.A giant majority of the population never even considers that tomorrow may be different than today. They’ve never experienced adversity that challenges their very existence. Besides emergency workers and first responders, you preppers and survivalists are a minority in the extreme sense.
These people will not be able to process the information that their 5 senses will be feeding them during a grid-down SHTF crisis. They won’t be able to separate the emotion from their new, violent world. Safe spaces and political correctness have made them soft.
They are a liability and to be avoided if at all possible. However, that may not always be possible. I recommend you read my post on…
Stop giving a shit about getting likes on social media!
I know this may sound counter productive to selling my book.
However, I’m under no illusion of how few books I would sell on my literary journey.
(according to all my hate mail, and the book being banned by a 7,000 member Facebook survival group, I know it’s most defiantly not a book for everyone. Especially if you have no sense of humor)
“I assure you that this book will not be on the New York Times best seller list.”
It was never intended to be.
It was designed to be a slap-in-the-face reality check that could be read in less than 45 minutes when you find yourself in a SHTF situation.
Get away from the internet and get busy.
“Here’s the 5 best pieces of advice I can give someone.”
1. My best advice is to put your time and energy into having some cash on hand when the current credit mechanism of buying goods and services shuts down, banks temporarily shut their doors and ATM’s are empty.
A new monetary system will be put in place by the powers that be. What that will be is anybodies guess. You just need to get through that period of time where the current system is not operating.
2. My best advice is to have a short and long term food plan.I recommend you buy a couple extra items of what you already use in your house when you go to the grocery store.Invest, yes invest in putting up some meals in a jar.
Even if it’s just a tomato plant or radishes.The time to learn how to do this is not after a disaster.
3. Get together with a Disaster Buddy or two and work up a mutual assistance plan to help each other out in a disaster or emergency.Grow this into a small mutual assistance group.Establish a communication system with your Disaster Buddy/Group.
4. Have a way to store or acquire and purify water.
5. Have a means to defend yourself.Firearms are an insanely and hotly debated topic in the prepper/survival community.
I always say to get the best gun you can afford for the environment you are in.
Ok!I know that sounds like I’m side stepping the “best gun” advice for you gun nuts, so I’ll tell you what I would prefer if I could only have one gun.
It would be a Savage Model 24.That’s a single shot, rifle shotgun combo.I’d want a .22 caliber rifle barrel with a 20 gauge shotgun barrel.
That would suit my needs for my lifestyle and environment.You may have different needs and live in a more hostile environment and require a different tool.
The last thing I’ll advise is for you to immediately get my book.
Even with advanced warning of an impending winter storm or hurricane, the News routinely shows people running, last minute to the store for basic supplies. Humans for the most part, are unprepared, reactionary creatures and store shelves don’t hold enough supplies for everyone.
When people suddenly need life saving knowledge on survival, and warfare, they’re going to be desperately scrambling for that information.
This book covers those controversial, real world subjects you never think about unless you live in a war zone or an underdeveloped country. It pushes your mind into an uncomfortable way of thinking.
It’s stripped down to quickly deliver the reader information on topics such as how the criminal element will conduct their reign of terror. It covers how to pick a winning survival team, how to prepare for a stay at a FEMA camp, what to expect in a 100 mile traffic jam and what it takes to be a post apocalyptic scavenger. It also provides a list of post collapse professions that ensure you’re essential to a grid down community. Plus a whole lot more.
The SHTF Art of War. You can get it immediately with no waiting on KINDLE.
You have other protesters with their own agenda riding the coat tails of another protest with a different agenda.
It becomes a melting pot of non-sense.
It’s confusing and people have very short attention spans.
Every protest now is viewed by the your average working class citizen (who have bills to pay), as a bunch slackers wanting something for nothing.
The message is lost in the white noise made by discontented cry babies.
Adding insult to injury, you have all these anarchist kids causing trouble at “peaceful” protests.
These black clad amateurs have upped their game lately though by blocking intersections, pepper spraying a few people, smashing windows and burning a car or two.
As long as these rookies do not become a collective and unified, they are just piss-ants who are an annoyance.
However, if a charismatic leader, shows up and uses their ability to inspire and motivate followers to perform at high levels, and to be committed to the cause, chaos will ensue.
Pepper spray and cardboard signs on sticks, will escalate to time and energy dedicated to destroying specific targets that cause power outages and delays in basic services.
THAT will get peoples attention.
Our unprotected electrical grid and “just-in-time” inventory systems of our grocery stores are painfully easy targets.
If you haven’t read “The SHTF Art of War” yet, and want to know how the savage nature of human nature will bloom when the lights go out, fear not. You can get it immediately with no waiting on KINDLE. It’s also available in a popular EMP resistant print format.
The average citizen is clueless to their surroundings and has never entertained the idea of what they’d do in a disaster or life threatening situation.
These individuals will lose half their IQ points as soon as the emergency tones go off on their radio.Tunnel vision and panic will cause them to freeze up and be in your way.
When panic sets in, your average person gets tunnel vision and their field of vision can shrink up to 70%.
Stress hormones are like hallucinogenic drugs that compromise their decision making capability.
You, assuming you’re of the preparedness mindset, will be surrounded by average citizens in complete denial about their reality and they will not be able to cope, adapt or overcome.
“Did you know that the biggest threat to your life if you survive a plane crash isn’t the fire or the smoke?It’s your everyday average citizen blocking the isles and exits as they try to get their carry-on luggage out of the overhead bin.”
What is your disaster personality?
Will you endanger yourself or your family to help others?
Will you be able to push women and children out of your way to get to safety?
Or will you be the person to allow just one more person into the lifeboat so that it sinks?
If you haven’t read “The SHTF Art of War” yet and want a slap in your face reality check, fear not. You can get it immediately with no waiting on KINDLE.
