From the beginning, it seems civilization has always been a con game.
Believe it or not, democracy was tribal.
It was civilization that took it away…
…and forced man to kneel before ‘god-kings’ and a plethora of nonsense.
The civilized Ancient Greeks reintroduced democracy and took credit for inventing it.
But they did not actually invent democracy, they just introduced it to civilization for the first time.
Unfortunately Civilization can’t be completely democratic (and most weren't) because it has too many things to organize:
-carry out justice
-defend the realm
A democratic system would put the wrench in the works very quickly.
Even the most democratic civilization has its undemocratic side (in our case, it’s the Executive Branch).
In this manner, civilization is like the workplace.
And the everyone knows the workplace is not democratic.
‘American’ democracy has kept this innate non-democratic side of civilization by making the Executive Branch the most powerful and non-democratic branch of the United States government.
And that’s the reason.
Too many things to do, too many tasks to carry out, too many projects to build…to be asking everybody about their opinion.
A good enough justification...
...and a good reason to keep civilization's government as small as possible
Oh, what's that?
We've done the opposite?
I wonder why?
Is it because civilization tends to evolve into a giant control-freak requiring a huge bureaucracy to keep its subjects under control?
Again, I wonder why?
I suspect it is because of the following:
Eventually, after all the roads, bridges, walls , wells were built and the crops harvested…
…you had a periodically inactive citizenry just sitting back, relaxing and thinking about how to get ahead.
The people with free time and thinking?
Civilization got paranoid.
Civilization got scared.
And civilization started LYING.
This is because at any given time….
…civilization had a mass of unoccupied busybodies thinking about self-gain, self-improvement and self-enrichment.
While the truth had always been that civilization's ‘ORGANIZERS’ had utilized the excuse of civilized necessity….
…to SKIM A HUGE PORTION OFF THE TOP FOR THEMSELVES.
What if the busybodies found out?
Something had to be done.
Keep them busy bodies...busy!
Keep their minds distracted and their brains focused on things other than politics and wealth.
Harvest season is over and the workers are inactive!
Have seasonal fairs, holidays and celebrations.
And...put all the busy bodies to work BUILDING GIGANTIC WORTHLESS MONUMENTS.
Tell them the Gods wish it and threaten them with holy annihilation if they didn’t.
Tax the crap out of them while allowing them just enough to eat, shelter themselves and share in a few distractions.
Lie to them.
Finally, tell them the king himself is an appointee of the Gods…
…or better yet…
…tell them the king IS a god.
And it didn't help Civilization any that the most ruthless sociopaths (ruthless, guilt-free individuals) were the ones who tended to make it to the top.
Finally, keep the masses content and distracted with "Bread and Circuses."
But let’s time-warp to the present.
Our modern monuments are now military industrial complexes.
The Ancient Egyptians built pyramids.
We build stadiums, skyscrapers, aircraft carriers, and space programs.
I can’t list the endless lies citizens have been told by the 'organizers' throughout the ages, but by studying the present one...you can get an idea.
The lies are so many and so massive that the citizenry (now made more aware by the Internet) have come to call it a ‘conspiracy.’
The truth is civilization has always been a conspiracy against truth by the few at the top
to justify their exploitation of the many under them.
The difference today is the Internet has simply made us aware of it.
And boy are we in shock!
Have you ever heard of the term ‘Byzantine’?
Byzantium was a civilization that existed 1500 years ago.
Or how about ‘Machiavellian’ ?
Machiavelli was a plotter who existed 500 years ago.
All these terms refer to the viper-like qualities of civilization and government going at the time - a long, long time ago.
Just like the very same conspiracy of WEALTH we have going on today.
It is actually a very old conspiracy.
Concerning the delusion, control and robbery of the masses...
...by the very exploiters at the top.

There are different types of crisis and for each one you need a different and specialized type of survival preparation.
I can’t say enough when it comes to sticking to the lone-abundantly-stocked-cabin-fortress-in-the-woods scenario.
If you’ve got, one great!
But don't make this the beginning, middle and end of your survival strategy.
Plan ahead, keep a firm foot in reality…and stay flexible.
There are three types crisis situations:
-Drastic Political Change
Let’s look at the details for each one below:
A situation of economic collapse is one of monetary instability.
There is little means to acquire money and what little money is available is losing its value as you hold it in your hands.
What does this look like?
Mass unemployment, little pay and increasing prices.
The situation does not lend itself to saving money.
At this time, the bottom tier is going homeless, suffering from exposure or going hungry.
You want to make sure you don’t join this group.
To prepare, you may start by hoarding real money, not paper money.
By this I mean gold and silver coins minted by legitimate governments.
You can be holding a real bar of pure gold.
Nobody on the street will respect it unless it has some sort of recognizable seal proving it is what you say it is.
This is why you want coins.
Gold is the best – but remember – governments (like Franklin Roosevelt’s) have a reputation of confiscating gold in hard times. This means they give you 30 days to sell ALL your gold to a government agency at THEIR PRICE.
What gold you then keep (illegally) then becomes hard to sell it becomes a felony.
If this happens, you will be forced to sell what gold you have on the black market to acquire money. But from here on you don’t really know who you are dealing with or what they will do to you.
You can stockpile gold, but understand that you will probably end up selling it on the black market to people you don’t know or trust and at risk to yourself. Count on the government confiscating all gold.
This is why I prefer silver coins.
They have a stamp proving legitimacy and acceptability (American Eagles are best). They can be used directly to purchase things from mom and pop stores (chain stores will reject them). And they can be easily and locally exchanged for money.
So stock up on American Eagle silver coins to prevent inflation from destroying your savings.
Convert your money into silver coinage to preserve the value of your savings.
Otherwise inflation will destroy your saved money.
Remember, if you invest in gold or silver, the value of your gold and silver will increase along with inflation, thus preserving the value of your money.
Pay Off Your House
The one thing you want to own during bad economic times is a paid-off house.
If you live in an economically viable area you can work there and drive to work from there.
If your area dries up economically, you at least have a rental property or you can sell it to acquire another property in your new location (probably at a loss).
A paid off house removes the large financial burdens of rent and home insurance.
It offers a place of refuge to your loved ones, friends and relatives.
It also serves as a reliable home-base from which you can travel to find work elsewhere to feed your family.
Make Plans to Stay Mobile
A hard economy might require that you move frequently from one area to another in search of a job.
In this case, it is better to leave your family in the care of a relative while you head out on your own.
Even if you find a job, rent rather than buy.
A mortgaged house is like an extra anchor of expenditure that weighs on you and your family during hard economic times. There is no guarantee that the job you have today will be there tomorrow to keep paying for that house, so rent rather than buy.
Find maintainable employment
Work at something that is in demand.
Work on the side for cash
Start your own business from home.
Pay-off, sell or otherwise get rid of car bills.
Buy a quality used car from a private seller (car dealers just want to get you into debt).
Make sure its an extreme fuel-saver.
Use gasoline fuel-saving additives and devices (they work! – look them up on the web)
Face the Fact: You Are Poor
We all are! The entire country is….save for a few oligarchic elites.
Too many Americans will increase their suffering both psychologically and physically because they don’t own up to this fact now.
These people keep spending on things that they still consider ‘necessary’ while the truth is they can no longer afford them.
Get Rid of Your Bills
Get rid of all non-essential expenditure.
-health insurance (yes, get rid of it – see below)
Switch from Standard to Alternate Medicine
Health insurance is unaffordable
Medical treatment is unaffordable.
The modern health industry is in a condition of collapse.
Modern medicine is a murderous fraud.
It will hinder, bankrupt and then kill you.
Chemotherapy, radiation treatment or cut and burn will kill you before the cancer does.
Switch to alternative medicine – it is cheaper and it works better than standard medicine.
Finally, look at it this way: you can afford alternative medicine. You can no longer afford modern medicine.
Connect with Family and Relatives
Now’s the time.
You don’t know when you might desperately need their help.
Reconnect with relatives and friends – come closer together.
You’re going to need each other.
Secure Your Home
-keep somebody at home at all times
Be Aware of Your Surroundings
As the economy tanks, crime will skyrocket.
Corruption will also skyrocket.
Stay aware of your surroundings, situation and the opportunity for crime or corruption to hurt you.
Get in Touch with the Black Market
Black markets flourish in hard economic times to counter government regulations.
Merchandise (like food) can be acquired from a black market at half the price (yeah, it might be ‘expired’, but you can still eat it).
Deal in Cash
Get the job done off Craigslist and pay in cash
You yourself can work independently for cash
Businesses pay a lot in taxes, rent and electricity so they charge you more than just a plain skilled person.
Also, cash cannot be tracked and is tax-free
Hopefully, this is the way the States will confront and tame the Federal Government.
County Sheriffs will stop accepting Federal mandates or authority.
State Legislatures will start rejecting Federal mandates.
Police and soldiers will stop obeying illegal and unconstitutional orders.
Members of our military will start quitting in disgust.
This is the most desirable SHTF scenario, but make no mistake, it will involve hardship.
Please note: depending on how far both sides are willing to push the envelope, this could be the precursor to a national civil war.
So be ready (if necessary) to survive war (see below).
Civil disobedience at the state and local level can lead to a plethora of economic and social problems.
Presently the State and Federal are so intertwined that a separation could lead to unforeseen economic shock.
The Federal government could lash back by cutting off all Federal aid and all Federal programs in disobedient states.
This means masses of welfare-dependent recipients finding themselves penniless, huge prison populations without a supporting structure, collapse of our federally dependent educational system.
Things could get even worse if the Feds cut off rail, highway, air and sea traffic to the state.
So you can soon be facing something close to a social collapse situation.
Under these circumstances standard survival preparations will come in handy.
But don’t expect a 4th of July Parade.
The disobedient states (under a lot of economic pressure) may start enforcing some pretty draconian regulations (food and gas purchase limitations, higher taxes, wage and price control, arbitrary laws, increased militia presence, etc) to deal with it.
Whichever way you slice it, state vs fed confrontation will carry with it a lot of hardship.
Understand that your state is fighting for your rights, but that it is doing so under a lot of pressure. It will have to make many difficult decisions.
This is really our greatest chance to make a difference and save the country.
Support your local state and become part of the process, not a hindrance.
This will not be easy, especially when some of your state actions begin to resemble the very same Fed abuses we are rebelling against.
But understand that an organized state-level disobedience stands the greatest chance of success.
Make it your plan to be a supportive part of it.
Hopefully, the Feds will blink and they will erase some of the most unconstitutional, socialistic and un-American laws in this country’s entire history.
On the other hand, they may not.
A situation like this could lead to a civil war, so you must keep this possibility at the back of your mind at all costs (see surviving war below).
This is the standard SHTF scenario which everybody has in mind when they talk about survival.
This is a situation where government loses control over society and society breaks itself and then breaks down.
Believe it or not, there are not too many examples of this outside of Haiti, Ethiopia, Somalia and some African countries.
Such a thing could become a true reality for America in a Planet-X or EMP attack scenario, in other words, a catastrophe that affects the entire nation, not just one local area.
Suggestions that an economic collapse alone will cause social collapse are, in my opinion exaggerated.
Historically governments have kept a steely grip on society in the worse of economic collapses (see 1990’s Argentina or Brazil, Weimar Germany or Leningrad in 1941).
It is my belief that government will not only keep a steel grip, but will radically increase its enforcement power within an economic collapse scenario – even if America is starving.
For certain, all survival preparations you have made will serve you well – with one exception:
Don’t count on a stand-off scenario.
The government enforcement mechanism will be radically enlarged and looking for any challenge to its authority.
Instead, hide and survive in quiet fashion.
(If there is a resistance movement, join it, but make sure your family is safe first.)
Your preparations will make your survival more pleasant and avoid the drastic deprivation others will be suffering.
Your main concern should be to keep you ‘stash’ secret from jealous neighbors, government informers or government enforcement.
Historically all such ‘stashes’ are confiscated by government and their owners accused of ‘hoarding.’
This extends to weapons.
Hide your weapons from government thugs. To prevent intrusion, buy your weapons from private parties. FBI lists will be used to confiscate legally purchased weapons. Even then you can hide your weapons (learn weapon stashing techniques) so that when the thugs come a knockin’ they find nothing.
For all practical purposes, the government will keep a steel grip on society until the economy recovers.
Your job is:
-Confront government if confrontation is actually happening (but put your family in a safe place first)
-Hide your goods (in your property and abroad)
-Keep a low profile
-Be ready to Leave the Country if the re-established society goes against your values
-Make Preparations to Stay Mobile (you may be required to evacuate your immediate place of residence in an instant).
Drastic Political Change
This means the government has changed radically into a non-democratic entity – a dictatorship.
There is no more resistance. The new government has simply taken over.
Revolutionary France, Communist Russia, Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany are good examples of this.
When faced with torrential events like the Russian Revolution or the Chinese Revolution, survivalism is moot. The best choice is to leave.
If you see America overrun by enforcers, its government replaced by a puppet government and concentration camps open for business, your best move might be to move (or at least move your family) to another country.
Of course, we are talking about an endgame scenario here.
Under this scenario, all resistance has stopped.
If there is no more active resistance either by government or the people, what are you doing there?
You must decide whether continuing to live in such a society meets your moral, political, social values.
Most such societies end badly, with their populations suffering huge deprivation (either from within, without, or both).
So if you are seeing mass-arrests, mass-disappearances, concentration camps, persecutions, executions, fear, police and enforcers everywhere…without any resistance from government or the population…the best choice for you might be to leave.
In hindsight, everyone who left France before the Revolution, Russia before Communism, Japan before WW-II or Germany before Hitler is considered not only heroic, but intelligent, moral and upright.
These ‘refugees’ are admired for their rejection of evil, and are never looked down upon.
When your entire society has surrendered to the devil and turned itself into hell, sometimes the most revolutionary act of protest and resistance an individual make is to leave (and carry on the struggle from the outside).
Catastrophe can be either natural or man-made.
In this case, survival involves the preparation against catastrophe for the period of up to one year.
It could be a big catastrophe, it could be a local catastrophe, it could be a national catastrophe, it could be a world catastrophe.
What is important is that you survive it by being prepared to do three things:
…for a year…and…not necessarily in that order.
The only way to survive non-survivable catastrophe is to not be present in the area where it occurs in the first place.
You can begin to ‘survive’ RIGHT NOW by moving out of these danger zones:
-large metropolitan areas
-areas around nuclear plants
-areas around military bases
Simply relocate as soon as possible to places that don’t include any of the above.
A large part of surviving a natural catastrophe is simply not being at the wrong place at the wrong time…before the catastrophe even begins.
As much as we fantasize about the total collapse of government and society, the truth is some type of government has historically continued to exist in even the most extreme of circumstances along with its power to organize and enforce.
This means that in a sedentary (non-nomadic) group or society some entity is always in charge, even if that entity is a group of shirtless guys with AK-47s.
All you have to do is look at modern day Somalia or WW-II Leningrad to see that government ‘continues’ in the most extreme of conditions. I mean, we’re talking mass starvation and death here. You think that affected ‘the government’ any?
Government is sort of like a cockroach. It can survive in the most exreme environments.
It’s the little people like you and me who get to die off.
The sad truth is that government continues to exist in the most difficult conditions, even if its only purpose is just to poke you with a bayonet and tell you to ‘move.’
In fact, the above seems to be FEMA’s main role in most natural catastrophes.
What ever the case may be, survival is always a short-term answer (1 week to 1 year) during which you must survive until you come under the rule of the new or reconstituted social reorganization which will inevitably occur.
The idea of surviving independently for years on your own or with a survival team is a fantasy. Eventually, the enforcers of the new or reconstituted social order (whatever it may be) will gain a say in your affairs, and you will become part that larger community.
The key choices are survive or move. If your area floods, you must move. If a hurricane destroys your town, you must survive.
Human government survives in the most extreme of circumstances and it often has at its disposition enough bodies of cannon fodder to overwhelm you.
Please see Part-I for more detail on surviving catastrophe.
We are talking all out war here – total war – and more specifically, war which affects your immediate living space.
This could be anything from an internal civil war, to a foreign invasion to a nuclear strike.
Mobility is the main factor in surviving war.
The things to consider are:
1) your location
2) how you will change your location
3) where will you go to once the change is made
When dealing with being overrun by war, your ability to re-locate neatly and efficiently is of maximum importance.
Notice the emphasis is on movement here.
You cant’ make a stand against roving armies.
All out war is like a tidal waves that engulfs and wipes out whatever stands in its way.
If WW-II is anything on which to base things on, then the people caught in war’s path will be subject to rape, enslavement, exposure, starvation and death.
It is better just to move out of war’s way.
Remember, this is not a collapse scenario. War is the destruction human beings by governments who are still very much in charge and in control.
So to restate: the best way to survive all out war is to GET OUT OF ITS WAY.
Don’t let your “stuff” keep you from vacating.
The best time to get out of the way is before the war gets to you.
Many people left Nazi Germany and Eastern Europe before WW-II due to their fear of Fascism instead of a sense of all-out war.
Those who did later breathed a sigh of relief when they saw what happened to those areas in 1944 and 1945.
Use a Combination of Survival Skills
One type of survival strategy does not negate the other.
All survival preparations will favor you in all survival scenarios.
Preparing for one does not mean not preparing for another.
All survival preparations are good.
Here’s a quick review list:
-paid off home
-place you can relocate to
-keep your preparations secret
-survival team or acquaintances

Survivalism has been an American tradition since the 1980’s (arguably since the early 60’s) and it has grown exponentially with the blossoming of Conspiracy awareness.
Unfortunately, the image of ‘survival’ that has formed in the mind of ‘survivalists’ might differ drastically from reality.
I am not going to speak against preparedness or survivalism, but WILL argue against the unreal scenarios many people are imagining.
Which leads to a very important point:
1) Never Confuse Survival with Confrontation
It is important right from the beginning to decide if you are going to attempt survival or confrontation.
Survival consists of surviving against all odds.
Confrontation consists of taking on the enemy regardless of the odds.
In many instances, confrontation requires self-sacrifice. Confrontation is war.
My first point for the survivalist is to never confuse the two.
One path requires your ingenuity, strength, resources, cunning and will to let you and your loved ones survive.
The other path requires your ingenuity, strength, resources, cunning and will to make war on the enemy. It does not necessarily go hand-in-hand with survival, and most definitely does not go hand-in-hand with your family’s well-being.
Survival would include you taking care of your family.
Confrontation would entail you leaving your family (hopefully in safe hands) while you engage in combat.
It is muddled thinking on these lines that leads to a lot of avoidable grief.
I am stressing this one factor because I see too many people confusing survival, family, and confrontation and putting it all in the same pot.
This practice could be preparing a whole lot of unnecessary tragedy and grief for your loved ones (see Randy Weaver and Waco).
The way things are today, I am 100% for confrontation, but I am totally against people being deluded by the (government-sponsored?) fantasy that they can confront government forces while taking care of the safety of their families.
What the heck, at first opportunity, the government will use your own family's survival as a trump against YOU, which is what they have done throughout history by threatening the well-being of those residing with you and then taking them as hostages.
And one more thing.
I take issues with governments who expect people to ‘die for their country’ but treat people who are ready to die for their own ideals as lunatics. The true lunatics are people who give up their lives in furthering the causes of corrupt governments.
Having made the distinction between ‘survival’ and ‘confrontation’, let us continue.
I believe the fantasy-like aspect of some of these scenarios may disintegrate (to the detriment of their believers) once they hit reality head-on.
To see what a ‘collapsed’ society would look like, you need to look at history.
Study Communist Russia, Imperial Japan, Nazi Germany, WW-II, Haiti, Somalia, Rwanda, Africa in General and Afghanistan…
..now imagine yourself and your survival get-up in those scenarios.
For starters, many of the above scenarios require only one major step for survival:
It would have been useless to try to ‘survive’ the Communist Russian Revolution, the Nazi German Revolution, the Communist Chinese Revolution, the Cambodian Revolution or the Rwanda revolution.
These were all unopposed preparations for genocide.
Your best ‘survival’ decision in these cases would have been simply to GET THE HELL OUT.
On the other extreme you have Somalia and Afghanistan.
I don’t even understand why those places figure in maps as countries.
It’s probably because they are being held together by the UN, international aid…and map companies which keep drawing those places as a country.
Starvation, thirst, violence and death have been their long-time reality.
They still have governments!
It seems that governments at this extreme level of collapse begin to consist of “warlords” who control what amounts to armed gangs.
So you see, government just doesn’t seem to go away!
No matter what the stage of deprivation of a country, the government persists!
The only good news is that the deprivation is a stage.
It will end…sooner or later.
Realistically, you must ask yourself:
“What you will do to get through this stage of deprivation and suffering…
… so you can come out alive on the other end?”
Ergo the first lesson:
2) Think of the crisis as a TEMPORARY SITUATION which has a beginning and an end through which you and yours will have to survive
This puts a realistic time frame in your planning.
One year is an achievable time frame (though it will require heavy preparation as to food stocks, etc).
But keep the mobile option always at the back of your mind.
As mentioned before, there are special out-of-control situations in which it is simply better to leave, not dig in (Nazi Germany, Communist Revolutions, Fukushima, a nuclear strike, a meteor strike, your home becoming part of a battlefield etc)
3) Expect and be prepared to deal with GOVERNMENT PRESENCE
Governments are like cockroaches.
They exist and prevail in the worse of calamities and circumstances.
Whether your looking at Afghanistan, Somalia or Leningrad, 1941 (outright cannibalism)you have some sort of government surviving in the worse of possible conditions, and this includes conditions of mass starvation, thirst and death.
Government, like the Jonestown enforcers always seem to be above it all.
So expect some sort of government or enforcement group to be throwing its weight around during the time of crisis (even under the worse of circumstances)…and…
…be prepared to deal with it.
I know what follows does not sound macho, but try to understand.
Dealing with it means pretending to go along with whatever the enforcers say while doing your own thing to survive.
Do you have guns? Nope. (you got them hidden away)
Do you have hoarded food? Nope (you have it hidden away)
Is this your only place of residence? Yes (you also got a stashed hideout in the woods)
You try to work around them as best you can while making use of your preparation.
I am not saying all this in a cowardly fashion.
Don’t confuse survival with confrontation.
If you and your family are trying to survive, this is what you will have to do – you will have to use the art of concealment and hoarding.
4) Make MOBILITY part of your survival preparedness
Whether it be to another county, another state…or another nation, have a plan, the resources and the will to relocate.
Whatever scenario you look at, things look pretty grim for the individual independent resistor – even in out of the way collapsed places like Somalia or Afghanistan.
Those warlords, once they have fixed your location, will just keep sending heavily armed punks to your compound until you find yourself in an ‘Alamo’ situation (and you know what happened to the Alamo).
This does not portend well for the individual survivalist.
Numbers add strength, they also facilitate doing things like moving, changing location, hiding or standing guard.
Whether you are trying to survive Hitler or Somalia, it pays to have friends about you (whether related or not).
Ergo, the third lesson:
5) Make yourself part of a SURVIVAL GROUP
The more people you have on the same page, the more chances you have of surviving.
It doesn't have to be a giant compound.
You don't even have to live at the same location.
It could simply be a set of nearby families who think and believe as you do and who are willing to help out either with an alternate place to stay, trade, etc.
The bottom line is the more people you have aligning with you as a team, the better your chances are of surviving.
Need to relocate?
Maybe you can convoy with them.
Maybe somebody can drive ahead and report to your 'convoy' via walkie talkie.
Maybe somebody on their end knows this part of the woods.
The examples are limitless.
Its enough to say that the more people you have preparing and aligning with you to survive, the more resources you will have at your disposal.
Ergo, the sixth lesson:
6) KEEP A LOW PROFILE AND HIDE in whatever way necessary
The next comment is not going to sound very macho either, but remember, we are talking about something much more important than being macho here.
To survive, it frequently becomes important to hide.
Every animal (whether predator or not) uses the art of hiding to accomplish survival.
The survivalist fantasy of openly challenging and surviving all comers is a fantasy.
If you attract attention, you have just cut your chances of survival in half.
Whether trying to survive Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Somalia, Afghanistan an earthquake or Planet-X, keeping a low profile is of utmost importance.
If you attract attention, you will eventually attract undesired attention…whether it be from starving people, criminals, warlords or the government.
You don’t want to brag about your survival preparations.
You don’t want your set up to be noticeable.
Be warned: there are many innocent ways to attract attention in a hostile and deprived environment.
Do you have a big two story house?
Do you live in a fancy neighborhood?
Do you have a large survival stash others know about?
Do you plant your own food on your property?
Do you have a private well others know about?
Do you have a big gun collection others know about?
Do your clothes, car or house display indications of wealth?
Do you display bumper stickers, flags, t-shirts or other items which criticize government?
There are many ways to attract attention, and there are equally as many ways to keep a low profile or even hide.
An ideal hideaway (for those who can accomplish it) would be simply underground and out of the way.
7) Be prepared to SURVIVE EXPOSURE
This means surviving without electricity or gas in the hostile side of climate where you reside.
Remember, this will be a particular challenge where it snows.
You will have to burn wood- a lot of it- to avoid freezing to death. Make sure you have a lot of firewood (or some other fuel) available, accessible or stockpiled. Remember, living trees don’t burn and people can see a chimneys burning for miles. There are some alternatives to chimneys (like wood chip, compacted newspaper or pellet burners) but remember, people will be able smell as well as see your chimney.
Surviving in Winter without gas or electricity is hardcore and requires serious preparation. On the other hand, snow and freezing weather discourages undesirables.
An alternate solution to toughing it out in the snow is to head south.
Many people already are (because they can no longer afford natural gas prices).
A lot of the southern parts of this country suffer no snowfall and maintain temperatures above 50 degrees year long. Check out your daily national weather for details.
8) Have access to WATER
In connection to the above. Many places in which it does not snow, suffer from water deprivation.
Always make sure you have access to water, whether it be from a well, a pond, a canal, a creek or a lake.
Water deprivation will kill you in 4 days.
Water is important.
Stocking up on water is a waste of time and space, especially if you must regularly replace the water in your containers. Even a huge stock will be depleted in less than a year. Think about this.
If you cannot afford a well, then stock up on ceramic filters (Berky is highly recommended) so you can drink from whatever local water source is available.
(Your water heater should be your first source of water once the lights go out)
Remember, many other people will also be drinking from that same water source (and dying from it) because they forgot to stock up on big ceramic water filter systems that work without water pressure.
9) Be prepared to SURVIVE FOR A YEAR
Even the worse of crises end within a year.
This means that after a year (if not before), some sort of societal and government system will reestablish itself and gain authority over you and your neighbors.
The year of crisis is over…and you have survived and reentered society – congratulations.
If all resistance has collapsed and you disagree with the social and political nature of the new system which has established itself, then it is your responsibility to LEAVE (the sooner the better).
Remember, the mobility option is also a part of your survival scheme.
On the other hand:
If the SHTF crisis (and I’m talking massive thirst and hunger) lasts longer than a year, then you’d better start making some plans to become mobile.
Sedentary (immobile) societies exist only when there is plentiful food and water.
Societies which live in deprivation become nomadic.
We are no different.
Cities and towns without food or water become death houses.
If it gets to that point, start thinking about the movie "The Road."
10) Be prepared to HIDE YOUR GUNS
When the great disarmament comes, the government will not have or even be able to handle the data on the millions of gun owners this country has.
Most of the confiscations will be break and take.
They will go through the house, search it and confiscate all weapons.
You can either resist to the death or simply refuse to play the game.
Not playing the game means you have selected, prepared and utilized hiding places for your guns, which are no longer inside your residence.
So that when the government enters your house and searches it, they find nothing.
The guns they said you might have, have been sold for cigarette money…get it?
They can’t tell you any different.
Once the government thugs are gone, you may retrieve them, but always keep them hidden in secret places in or near your home at all times (keeping in mind thethugs might return at some later date).
You will need your gun to protect yourself and to hunt.
And if you are a true patriot, a possible brutal stand against totalitarianism.
Any society in crisis mode is victim to criminal predators, no matter how tight the police presence may be.
Desperate people will do anything to survive, and in crisis mode, they know there won’t be any special investigation into their heinous deeds.
In crisis mode, if you get seen, you get killed.
But if you are not seen, you're home free – no investigation, no questions, no jail time, no punishment., perhaps not even any curiosity about who even committed the crime. The enoforcers just don't have the time for this.
Criminals that understand this become the successful predators in any crisis.
You have to study the history of cities under siege to understand this reality and why crime flourishes in a state of crisis and deprivation in spite of police presence.
Prepare yourself to survive, but do so realistically.
Read the history of what became of other societies in conditions of collapse.
Keep the concepts of Survival at hand:
1) Differentiate survival from confrontation
2) Understand the crisis is temporary
3) Expect government presence
4) Be Mobile
5) Join a survival team
6) Keep a low profile / hide
7) Be prepared to survive exposure
8) Have access to alternate source of water
9) Hide your guns
10) Make survival preparations for 1 year

We do have a democracy of sorts in this country.
But so do China and North Korea.
Did you know Communism is a democracy?
Did you know they even call themselves Democracies?
North Korea’s official name: “Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.”
At appointed dates, the Communist Party does hold elections in those countries, but, of course, the candidates are just two choices from the Communist party (who have been selected by Communist Party bosses).
The truth is that democracy (a tribal practice ingrained in human genetics) forces even the most totalitarian of countries to pretend they are democratic.
Imperial Rome was democratic (it had a Senate and a Tribune). True, its democratic practice amounted to electing the next figure-head, but it made the people feel good.
It always does.
This is why Nazi Germany preserved its Reichstag and Stalinist Russia maintained the Supreme Soviet – rubberstamping institutions all.
We will keep our Congress...
...even though we lose every ounce of freedom we have left.
Which brings me to the sad example of the 'Republic' of the United States of America.
Just why are we surprised at our loss of freedom?
The Founding Fathers suggested we never create political parties.
We created political parties.
The Founding Fathers established that Senators would be elected by their respective State Legislatures.
We transferred that power to the masses.
The Founding Fathers granted only Congress the power to “coin” money.
We transferred the power to coin money to a private bank.
The Founding Fathers put education in the hands of the States.
We put education in the hands of the Federal Government.
The Founding Fathers gave the States the right to keep a ‘state militia’ - a National Guard.
We turned the National Guard over to the Feds.
The Founding Fathers said:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”
We gave the IRS the power to regulate and tax religion.
The Founding Fathers considered bribery a punishable crime.
We legalized bribery with PACs and Lobbies.
The Founding Fathers considered homosexuality a scandal disqualifying anyone from public office.
We regularly vote homosexuals into office and have legalized gay marriage.
The Founding Fathers saw the Executive as servant to the Legislative Branch.
We have subjected the Legislative to the Executive.
The Founding Fathers necessitated warrants for violations of person and property.
We have done away with warrants.
The Founding Fathers made any cruel or unusual punishment illegal.
We revel in mistreatment and torture.
The Founding Fathers regularly mentioned God.
We have outlawed the mention of God.
Is it any surprise America is not America anymore?
But back to the subject of Democracy...
Our ‘Democracy’ supposedly consists of a government divided into three branches for which two political parties compete for control through democratic elections.
Our so-called ‘elections’ have been corrupted by the use of electronic voting machines...which leave no paper trail.
Meanwhile our two-party system has been corrupted by professional bribers called Lobbyists.
To cap it all off, we don’t really have Parties running against each other anymore, but mere political appointees from one political club:
The CFR-Trilateralist-Bilderbeg-Masonic club.
A political club is not a democracy. It is an obedience system.
Political clubs are what drove the French Revolution into the ground.
So when we have elections we get to choose one of two candidates.
Both candidates belong to the same political club:
The CFR-Trilateralist-Bilderberg-Masonic Club.
Half of which is owned by one ruling family: the Rockefellers.
The CFR-Trilateralist-Bilderberg-Masonic Club is for all practical purposes the one institution which REALLY runs America.
And why not?
They appoint all the candidates.
Now let's go back to the Communist democracy we spoke about at the beginning of this article.
In Communism bosses from a single party decide at all levels who the two competing candidates will be.
If you understand this reality, you will understand the sort of political reality we are living here in America today:
During election time we simply decide on one of two choices put before us by the very same political party - The CFR-Trilateralist-Bilderberg-Masonic Party.
If I am lying, then show me one candidate - JUST ONE - who is NOT a member of at least one of those elite institutions...
...and I might start believing we have a true democracy.

I would be a lot more sympathetic to the New World Order if it wasn’t run by a group of financiers with oceans of blood on their hands.
These are the same people who created the Russian and Chinese Revolutions which resulted in the execution of 100 million people.
These are the people who...
...provoke gigantic wars in which millions die...
...organize the genocide of entire populations.
...divided tribe against tribe, culture against culture, ethnicity against ethnicity and nationality against nationality with their artificial national boundaries in addition to dividing gender against gender, age group against age group, and class against class within the countries themselves.
These are the people who, being so destructive and divisive by nature, have turned the world into a perpetually self-destructing quagmire.
As such they are not builders or unifiers...but destroyers and dividers.
To bring humanity together, these people created a two-bit ideology called Marxism which is obsolete, but which they continue to espouse because they are too conservative and stupid to come up with anything better.
My question is this:
How the hell are these people going to build a New World Order?
They’ve been so busy dividing the world into a bloody Tower of Babel, that they probably don't have the slightest idea on how to bring the whole thing together.
How many people are going to have to die to build the New World Order?
Probably a lot.
How many people will the New World Order kill once it’s established?
Probably a lot more.
How long will the New World Order last?
Probably not very long.
The Bible’s Book of Revelation gives it a life-span of less than 4 years.
You see, you can’t really create anything through perpetual destruction, which is the only thing these people know how to do.
You can’t create anything without a common belief, a common culture, a common religion and a common language (which is the exact opposite of what these people have been creating for the last 500 years).
These people have been so busy dividing that they have forgotten how to unite anything.
Their only accomplishment so far in the field of unification is the general use of English as the International language and DOS as the international operating system.
Recently they have been fomenting hate, division and war between the Western World and the Middle East and inside all the nations as well.
Are these the people who are going to bring us a New World Order of the Ages?
What instruments will they use to keep it together?
More boogie men, more paranoia, more division, more hatred, more instability, more crisis, more war...more 9/11s?
Some World Order that will be (think about it).
Talk about a walking disaster!
By nature, these people are parasites who need division in the world in order to thrive and succeed.
It is therefore strange to see them desiring a 'unified world.'
Believing that these slugs could build a New World Order is a bit like believing a tape-worm could build a honey comb.
These people are parasites, and like parasites, they thrive when hidden within the host but wither and die when exposed to open air.
But whatever the case...
...and what seems more likely…
…they will NOT create a New World Order of the Ages…
…but a New World Order of the Moment.

On Monday June 6, 2011, a grotesque find was reported in all the news channels in Liberty County, Texas, in the area between Hardin and Daisetta.
The bodies of 30 dismembered children were reported found in the backyard of a home at the intersections of County Roads 2048 and 2049 in Liberty County.
This was announced as ‘breaking news’ across the nation.
It was also announced as breaking news across countries like Canada, Brazil and Europe.
Here is a quote from a Fox News Transmission on June 7, 2011.
“Authorities in Texas say as many as 30 bodies have been found buried at the intersection of two county roads in the southeastern part of the state. A Houston TV station is now reporting, quoting local authorities in Liberty country, Texas, quoting the sheriffs department there saying these are all bodies of children. The FBI has apparently been called into assist in this investigation. And this is quoting from the liberty county sheriff’s office: 25-30 bodies buried at the intersection of County Roads 2049 and 2048.”
When I heard that the FBI had suddenly become involved, my suspicions were immediately aroused.
The FBI is a Federal cover-up and clean-up agency dedicated to concealing government/establishment crimes.
It is the establishment’s janitorial crime scene agency.
They have covered up Ruby Ridge, Waco, the murder of Senator Wellstone, 9/11, the shooting of Representative Giffords and a host of other criminal acts across the world.
Please click on the Links below to follow the breaking of the story along with the cover-up that followed.
See the news of the dead bodies start to break below:
The News Reaches FOX
The News Reaches Australia
...so...with the FBI involved, it came as little surprise to me when the news began to announce the next day that no discovery had ever happened.
See the denial and the cover-up take place by clicking on the link below:
The News is Covered Up by Associated Press
In other words, we are asked to believe that the entire Sheriff’s investigation was launched (and announced to the world) based on tips from a ‘tipster’ who later turned out to be a psychic (excuse me?).
Finally, they said no bodies were found and that the whole thing was just one huge misunderstanding.
A shifty-eyed 'Liberty County Sheriff' called 'Captain Rex Evans' announced to the media that no bodies were found and that the whole thing was just a big mistake.
See the total denial below:
The News is Denied by 'Sheriff Captain' Rex Evans
The entire event, from discovery, to official announcement to media reporting to official cover-up and denial occurred in just two days.
It's always interesting to see how cover-ups work.
First, the leak (30 dead kids).
Then a small adjustment to the leak (no discovery, only investigation)
Followed by a factoid that disintegrates credibility (investigation launched by a ‘tipster).
Finally the debunking (tipster misled Sheriffs into a wild goose chase).
I don’t know where all those dead kids are now.
But I am damn sure they are in a much, much better place than this shit hole.
