They Never Learn

Epic Fail.

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.

Here’s why.

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.

keys

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…

Best Advice.

slice

The best advice I can give.

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)

WHAT MOBILE COVER FEBRUARY 20058 DECEMBER 2004© TINA KORHONENMODEL: LORI

“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.

book5

Garden.

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.

Or make one yourself using this new filter system.

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.

save

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.

lost

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.

Everyone For Themselves

adel

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?

You’re Not a Grey Man.

Here’s how I spot the failed grey man.

A shemagh. (you might also be a hipster)

And the biggest give away is if you’re wearing anything from the 5.11 tuxedo collection.  If you’re wearing 5.11 attire, that tells me you’re a cop or some kind of wanna-be cop or contractor wanna-be.
What does all this mean to me?  It means if I spot these telltale signs of tactical-ness, I put you into three categories.
  1. A cop or worse yet a young cop.
  2. A Dueshbag wanna-be cop or blackwater wanna-be contractor who spends too much time on youtube watching gun videos.
  3. A Military serviceman who hasn’t been taught how to be low profile when off duty.
My situational awareness radar has a default setting that red flags and lumps anyone wearing this tacti-cool garb into the category of “moron-with-a-gun” until proven otherwise.

Depending on the scenario, you offer me these assets and liabilities.

You’re the idiot that’ll pull a gun at the wrong time and make a bad situation worse at 200 mph.
Or the bad guy will recognize these failed grey-man clues and shoot you first.
The plus side of that is that you’ll put a spot light on where the bad guys should shoot and buy me time to exit the kill zone.
Don’t get me wrong here.  I like the rule of law and the men and women who bravely enforce it.  I’m pro 2nd amendment and absolutely for an armed citizenry.

barny

My concern is that the majority of gun carrying Americans do not have the training to engage bad guys effectively.  I hope and pray that if I find myself in an environment where armed resistance is needed to stop evil, that whoever pulls a gun that day, can perform that task with professional skills and confidence.
However the reality is that the odds are against that actually happening and so for now, I’ll be looking out for number one.

It pays to be the smartest guy in the room.

SHTF Women Trouble

rack1

If society has collapsed, the old rules will become more prevalent than ever.

During a civilized society ending disaster, there will also be the dissolution of the welfare state.  The cash and prizes the government gives out to women divorcees and single mothers for not being able to provide for themselves will cease to exist.

Without a government, the rule of law and the welfare state, women will have to look to men to protect and provide for them.

Communities will band together and your local feminists will abandon their cause and demand that they are owed provision, protection, help and support just because they’re women.

Groups of people will become physically closer.  Family members, friends, acquaintances and even strangers will be in close proximity without the electronic social devices to distract their attention and keep human interaction at a distance.

Socializing at this new intimate “face-to-face” level will bring out or better put, reveal many aspects of human nature that will be new to both male and female.

Things will get primitive.

fight

Problems will start first with the females.

I’m generalizing here of course, but take heed that on a biological level, women are hypergamous.  Hypergamy is neither good or bad, it just is.  It’s also very important for the woman to have this hardwired into her brain during primitive times where resources are not plentiful.

golderd

Hypergamy: Is the instinctual desire of humans of the female sex to discard a current mate when the opportunity arises to latch onto a subsequent mate of higher status due to the hindbrain impetus to find a male with the best ability to provide for her OWN offspring (already spawned or yet-to-be spawned) regardless of investments and commitments made to a current mate.

I’ll explain.

If a man gets a woman pregnant, he can leave the next day, never have any involvement, and his genes will still propagate.

If a woman gets pregnant, she’s stuck with the burden for a minimum of 9 months. On top of that, for the child to be successful, she has to invest at least another few years.

Since having a child requires so much work from the woman, it’s vitally important to her that she get the best possible genes for the father’s half of the baby.

Enter hypergamy.

Her brain subconsciously drives her attraction to the absolute best man available in a particular group.  This happens regardless if she’s currently in a committed relationship with someone or not.  Mother nature is a bitch.

Now there’s a Special Note about attraction:

attract

The attraction (or sex) drive is different than the relationship structure preference. Women have a hypergamous sex drive and men have a polygamous sex drive.

When it comes to relationships, men have a primary preference for monogamy and woman have a primary preference for polyandry.

What does this mean?

It means women are, by nature, not very good at being loyal to the tribe or their man.  They’re quick to seek the favor of men who are stronger and more dominant, whether those men are a part of their in-group or not.

In general, the problems within your brand new survival group will originate with the female behavioral spectrum of the survival group.

rollo(Power is why women sleep with their bosses and not the mailroom boy.)

It’s a mistake to be angry about this or at women directly.  It’s ingrained/hardwired into the species.  It’s a biological imperative, evolutionary trait.  It’s the reason you’re here today.

What you should be aware of is that not everyone understands this about human/female nature.  But there are those who do understand.  And among those that do, there may be some that’ll use this knowledge of female nature as a weapon.

Just like all men don’t act on their male nature to propagate the species with as many females as they can. Not all women act on their nature to be with the strongest man in the room.

However, with that being said, in the savage new world after the collapse of civilization as we know it, you men will have to up your game and bring more to the table.  I mean that literally.  You’ll be expected to provide your women more than just a big pay check if you expect sex in exchange for resources.

That brings me to Briffault’s Law.

It would also behoove all you males to understand Briffault’s Law.

Briffault’s Law

“The female, not the male, determines all the conditions of the animal family. Where the female can derive no benefit from association with the male, no such association takes place. – Robert Briffault

The Corollaries to Briffault’s Law:

1 – Past benefit provided by the male does not provide for continued or future association.

2 – Any agreement where the male provides a current benefit in return for a promise of future association is null and void as soon as the male has provided the benefit (see corollary 1)

3 – A promise of future benefit has limited influence on current/future association, with the influence inversely proportionate to the length of time until the benefit will be given and directly proportionate to the degree to which the female trusts the male (which is not bloody likely).

gofor it

When it comes to women, it’s not about everything you’ve done for them before, it’s completely about what you are doing for her today.  So you better think very hard about whether or not the juice is worth the squeeze.

Experienced?

Are You Experienced?
Ah! Have you ever been experienced?
Well, I have.”
– Jimmy Hendrix

fire stick

If you’re not a Combat Vet or First Responder, e.g., Emergency Room Nurse, EMT, Law Enforcement, or Fire Rescue, your brain will have a difficulty processing the information that bombards all your senses during a full blown, category 5, S.H.T.F. disaster event.

Not everyone is experienced and that can’t be helped.  That’s just the way the cookie crumbles.

Many individuals have never been in a physical fight!  That’s not necessarily a bad thing in a world where everyone gets along.  But we don’t live in that world.

golden2

We never have.

Violence is still the Gold Standard on this planet and it would behoove those who want to survive to understand that bloody fact.

A lot of (young) people these day’s can’t even mentally handle an opinion that differs from their’s and become outraged if it makes them feel uncomfortable or their feelings are hurt.

How will they react when they see a dead body or get punched in the face?

planed

Violence, carnage and combat are paralyzingly, powerful, stressful agents to the uninitiated.

Amanda Ripley author of “The Unthinkable“, concludes that “all of us undergo a three-stage process when we find ourselves in mortal peril: denial, deliberation and the “decisive moment,” during which the survivor buckles down and acts. The trick, she says, may be to understand our instincts, which, in a crisis, may betray us. Some people run toward infernos, not away, and even in the face of obvious impending disaster, some people just won’t move.”

These “initiated ” people who are “experienced ” live daily, in the darker world you have never set foot in. They will be reacting faster than your average citizen.

They are exactly the people you need to associate with.

It may be a good idea to expose yourself to a little violence and carnage.  Some Ambulances and Law Enforcement agencies do have a ride along program.  See about spending time in your local Emergency Room.

It’s not all about guns and gear!
A successful survivor is unpredictable. Their greatest survival weapon is their adaptability and how fast they can react in a changing environment.

The Big One

baltomore

Just like Californians are waiting for the “Big One” in reference to the mega-earthquake that causes biblical destruction in the state, I feel we are fast approaching the “Big” riot that causes mayhem across the major cities in America.

Here’s why.  We have a disgruntled segment of society that is just “itch-en” for a reason to take it to the man.  They don’t care what sets it off or who gets in their way once the game is on.

There are people among us that are disgruntled with their station in life.  There are individuals and gangs who have a bitterness towards authority figures, especially the police.

Recent events show that there is no shortage of people waiting and hoping for circumstances to allow them to rise up and exact their vengeance upon those they believed have wronged them.

We also have maladjusted people in our midst that only want to watch the world burn.

My fear is that some of these groups and agitators are organized.

Our infrastructure that provides goods and services throughout this country is extremely fragile.

fragile

Attacking soft targets like cell phone towers, electrical transformer substations, fuel storage areas, and other such unguarded sites will quickly overwhelm the capabilities of the emergency services.  EMS and Fire departments won’t respond to the location of an emergency if it is not safe.  You may be on your own for hours or days.

I’m not taking about a high-tech computer hacker attack.  I’m talking about rocks, small arms fire and the favorite weapon of Urban Guerrilla Fighter’s around the world.

The Molotov Cocktail.

Molotov

I may be thinking too far ahead on this, but all the facts are not in yet about the Walter Scott Shooting in North Charleston, South Carolina.

People (as well as media outlets) are declaring the cop guilty before a trial in a court of law can take place.

walterscott

The lawyers will present a defense for the Cop and that will infuriate people.

My concern is this. While I will let the courts decide. The Ferguson & Baltimore riots prove that many will not wait and or disagree with our legal system and take their, anger, frustration, violence and ignorance to the streets and neighborhoods.

fire van

When this trial starts, once again we will see protesters who will become a mob that doesn’t think the “Rule Of Law” applies to them.

I feel it will be worse than anything we have seen to date.
