What are the things that indicate to you that instability will be in a year or two rather than a decade or two (unless I'm reading too much into this). I think if we can get Trump in again then the future will be paved a little better for a while and am hoping what we're seeing now is just the bumps in the road being smoothed out as we correct course. What are you referring to exactly?

There should be a wiki that people could auto download via a repo or something for most of that stuff, and we could make hard copies periodically... This is a great idea

Sooner, if (((they))) can manage it, IMO.

I think if we can get Trump in again then the future will be paved a little better for a while and am hoping what we're seeing now is just the bumps in the road being smoothed out as we correct course.

Hope, but prepare for the worst; I sincerely hope that, too.

What are you referring to exactly?

I'm assuming we all pretty much agree that Jewgle, (((Twitter))), and all the other big tech companies are run by basically the same puppetmasters. There's a reason the heat is turning up and more and more people are getting permanently banned from those platforms, or shadowbanned, or "Algorithmed" (Did I just coin that term?).

The words "shut it down" are joked about, but do we think they cannot or will not, if they have the power to do so, shut down the internet? They're playing their trump cards (no pun intended) right now; showing their hand. M$ is threatening to deplatform Gab for "hate speech". Are there any big-name companies that have not done something similar now? Nothing is sacred to these people, no company seems to have its strings cut.

There should be a wiki that people could auto download via a repo or something for most of that stuff, and we could make hard copies periodically... This is a great idea

I think so, too.

Okay, so you mean in terms of the internet. I wholly agree, we are going to hit an internet crisis very soon, much sooner than I thought growing up. The wild west days are nearly over for the net. Rather than shut it off, I think they'll just keep manipulating it until it's basically a propaganda machine on the scale of NK's channel you can't shut off or the similar things in 1984, except worse: its all that, but integrated in the infrastructure that forms the backbone of our society itself. I took your gun part to mean you think the next civil (or revolutionary war) will be soon, and that's what I think Trump has pushed back... I cannot imagine what the US would look like now if Hillary won. We are just now getting back to some normalcy and think how much nonsense Trump has already done, slashing budgets and scuttling conglomo-beurocracies. I think some of these trade things are a little much for now, but we actually stopped the free flow of people from Islamic terror states. We are actually getting the wall! Our own interests are being considered, and hopefully people will learn to be happy and grateful instead of angry and guilty. Nobody should have to feel guilty for not screwing themselves over on others account... I think this is the transition that will spark a lot.

Let's make this wiki happen... Some pandas python scripts to scrape federal and state government sites take care of a lot of it. Google maps can be mined to track where food, fuel, supplies, etc. are. I wonder if 1800digrite has an API... We could even mirror the power grid. We can even pull sex offender data, and possibly even map out where lots of section 8 or other things where we might expect more chaos to ensue during scarcity. (Some people need it though, especially elderly, so this could also be used for altruistic purposes). Law enforcement, fire, and civil servants could be mined too.

I think ultimately we are going to see a new internet pop up if this keeps up. A separate information infrastructure. TOR comes to mind, but I'm cynical. If normal stuff moved that way, it could catch on but let's be frank: it's the child porn/drug infrastructure right now.

I'm on the outskirts of the city/suburbia already. Would hold tight for a day maybe, while loading the car up. If things look like going to shit completely, I'm raising a toast to you goats wherever you may be, and bugging the fuck out.

[–] thisistotallynotme 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago  (edited ago)

The answer to all of your questions is Yes, but I bet I'm in a minority.

Everyone needs to look into routers that speak TCP/BATMAN as well as TCP/IP. This is how we survive once the cables are permanently cut. I'm already saving open firmwares for popular router models of the past 10 years.

I've met two preppers in my life .. both of them depended on living with and living off of their parents to become preppers.

One freaked out when his mom married someone else moved out and now he had to take over the mortgage, so he no longer preps. He gave up on it .

The other one " I'm a prepper" and this one I saw first hand completely lost it when shtf. Didn't know what to do and spent thousands of dollars running his generator for 6 months . For the first 2 or 3 months ran the generator for about 10 hours a day then when the internet came back ran the generator for 15 hours a day. His parents downstairs got their house backfed so they paid to have the attached upstairs house backfed too so the whole house was running for that long. Upstairs not downstairs.

Freaked out in the beginning because gas stations for 3 towns had run out of gas so decided to siphon gas from his parents van. So much of a prepper he didn't siphon like you or I might have.. no ran down to the hardware store and bought a siphon kit ha. Didn't work only got 3 gallons out of it , van had a safety feature on it. So no not a prepper. He put a good show on Facebook but hahahaa I know the truth.

The real question you have to ask yourself is if you have the mental fortitude to deal with the shtf scenario and most won't know until faced with it.

Also you can't afford to be a shut in, you need to be already a part of your community whether it be a small town or a larger community you need to already be "in" with them.

One more I mentioned this in a post before .. you need to know the subhumans and illegals in your area they are more of an asset than you think they might be.

Do you have a plan to acquire and defend resources, or link up with those that have the same preparedness mindset?

/v/emergencynation/2130938

At the moment shutting down our communications would require a complete shut down of the internet. We will become more robust as our organization grows.

EDIT: We now have a plan for the total shutdown of the internet. (Using long wave radio on a prearranged frequency)

Have you been to the gun range lately?

Yes, but I/we still have many things to do I will admit.

Lots of things happening very quickly now; you may want to make any last-minute preparations you can.

I believe we have a little more time than that. Rome didn't collapse in a day and the scenario I foresee is something akin to that or Venezuela.

Anyway we should have land property to prep on and with within this year.

LARPing: the thread.

The power will not go out. There will be no large scale revolution. It's apocalyptic fantasy born out of frustration and desperation and they are feeding it to you to pacify you, to keep you depressed and dreaming about something that won't ever happen. Remember when black people in the US were all "come the revolution..."

Do what they didn't and you won't become what they are. Talk to your neighbors. Do them favors. Have them over for BBQ. Build strong social bonds with people of like mind. Show that your way of life brings you happiness and safety. Start neighborhood watch programs. Start shooting clubs. Start hipster makerspaces even. Whatever builds community and friendship. Use tech but use it responsibly and use services in countries with strong privacy laws and consumer rights. Don't give your internet presence to services that a likely to snatch it away for wrongthink.

Essentially, do all the things they don't want you to do and actively try to stop you from doing.

Tell that to people who lived through what happened in Bosnia.

Ask any of them how much advance warning they had or if anyone expected it.

[–] GapingAnus 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Look, prepping is a fun hobby and I recommend it.

But pretending that we're on the brink of some major cataclysm is a trick used to keep depressed people depressed and dreaming of a future that will never come. It pacifies them and promises that their salvation will come if they'll just wait and hold out while all their enemies will somehow wipe themselves out.

You can't wait for life to magically become better. You have to make it better and the best way to do that is to look at what your enemy doesn't want you to do and discourages you from doing.

[–] Stoffel 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

I am very close friends with a couple that grew up as kids in Bosnia. The wife became friends with my wife and it turned my wife around 180 when it came to having any reservations about prepping. Talk about some fucking horror stories.

As if niggers could ever do anything. Whites did, or did (((their))) history books lie to you about that?

Start hipster makerspaces even.

What the fuck kind of reddit-tier shit is this?

Essentially, do all the things they don't want you to do and actively try to stop you from doing.

You think niggers failing means whites will fail. Couching some (((narrative))) with universally accepted ideas here on a 3.5 year account with 770 total contribution points.

[–] GapingAnus 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

You think niggers failing means whites will fail.

So long as white people do exactly what the black people did which is exactly what (((they))) wanted them to do, yes.

And you go on to engage in MST. How to spit a liberal larper 101.

Don’t you keep a phone book with you? Most of that is in there. Books...

[–] waxdino 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

I have a bunch of general knowledge books, live a block away from a library, and remember life before the internet. That will certainly help.
