The Hollow State That We Are Quickly Becoming

Corruption and violence are its only traits.

A radical & rapid shift in loyalty?

From John Robb:

IF we keep going in this direction, and there’s no reason to think we won’t, these young men find new groups to care for them and they shift their loyalties to new gangs/mafias/cartels/militias etc. at a pretty amazing clip.  Given the danger this shift in primary loyalties represents for the future, going it alone isn’t an option.  You need a community at your back.

Tough to read. I would think that would be especially tough if you had hung it out there in any of our current war zones and were looking for something interesting to do when you rotated home.

This is not to disparage any of our service men. It is a simple (though hardhearted) calculation on where loyalties will lie when we are running way past 25% unemployment.

You will indeed need community at your back. How do you (right now) make that community successful and attractive to those out there with these skills? Might want to figure that out.

 

The Bottomless Pit of Patriot Opinion

It’s akin to the Bottomless Pit of Statist Opinion. The two are close cousins, if not inbred brother and sister incest.

What is it exactly that we are doing? If we are doing something, what is the impact? Based upon the last twelve months, very little.

Are we the silent majority? Playing to our tribes under the radar, getting ready for the inevitable? Does that legendary silent majority even exist anymore? Was it ever a reality? I am inclined to say no. 53% of your fellow Americans willingly placed Barry into the executive seat. Voter fraud and eligibility aside, that’s a clear mandate from over half of the people in traffic with you this morning who consciously decided to move in the direction of tyranny – to thunderous applause I might add.

Again: What to do? What are we doing? Where are the solutions? Where are the disruptions? When are we going to get inside OPFOR’s decision cycle and make them react to us?

I think I have an answer. You aren’t going to like it, but here goes:

When it is too late…

Until we, as a loose connection of like minded people begin to act rather than yell still louder on the Internet, our cause will be the shadowy figure in the corner of the room. The crazy uncle that talks about UFO’s and how the mob shot Kennedy. Literally, that’s who and what we are.

It starts with talk and intent. It becomes real when you are taking steps to prepare yourself, and those around you. It’s not enough to mention over beers to your pals about how “shit’s about to get real yo”. It’s about acquiring skills, gear, training, then leading by example and passing it all along. It’s about serving others and affecting change. It’ about instilling culture and community that is resilient.

What are you doing to move the needle?
