Mass stops bullets. Mass stops gamma radiation. Mass stops or at least slows down bad guys from entering a home and depriving its residents of life and property. Sandbags are cheap, so buy plenty of them. When planning your retreat house, think: medieval castle. The plain truth is that in a societal collapse there will be a veritable vacuum of law enforcement. In such times, with a few exceptions, it will only be the God fearing that will continue to be law abiding.
Choose your neighborhood wisely. Take away any one, and you are ineffective. But if you get all three right, you can absolutely devastate an opponent—even one that has vastly superior numbers. It will take time. It will take some sweat.
It will take money. Unless the shelves in your pantry and garage are filling with supplies, and unless you are growing muscles and calluses, you are not preparing. Vote with your feet! Following the Old Testament laws of tzedakah charity and tithing , I believe that my responsibility begins with my immediate family and expands in successive rings to supporting my immediate neighborhood and church, to my community, and beyond, as resources allow.
My philosophy is to give until it hurts in times of disaster. Moral relativism and secular humanism are slippery slopes. The terminal moraine at the base of these slopes is a rubble pile consisting of either despotism and pillage, or anarchy and the depths of depravity.
I believe that it takes both faith and friends to survive perilous times. But in most of places where you do indeed justifiably feel the immediate need to carry a gun, they are banned. When the Schumer Hits the Fan, there will be a mass exodus from the cities. Think of it as an army that is spreading out across a battlefield: The wider they are spread, the less effective they are.
Preparedness is not just about accumulating a pile of stuff. You need practical skills, and those come only with study, training, and practice. Style points should not be mistaken for genuine skills and practicality. It is in fact a mere privilege, subject to the whim of petty bureaucrats. Fundamental rights are not abstract tokens that are given or sold by other men.
They are in fact primary liberties bestowed upon us by God, our maker. Rights are not substantially secured by asking, "Mother may I? Rights are more properly demanded or boldly seized and then conspicuously exercised regularly.
This secures the liberties that have legitimately belonged to us since birth. If need be, lost rights can and must be restored through proscriptive use. If you live in a land where your rights have been marginalized into privileges, then it is either time to change your government, or to change your address.
Much like a muscle that atrophies with disuse, any right that goes unexercised for many years devolves into a privilege, and eventually can even be redefined as a crime. Modern fiat currencies are generally accepted, but have essentially no backing. Because they are largely a by-product of interest-bearing debt, modern currencies are destined for inflation. In the long run, inflation dooms fiat currencies to collapse. The majority of your assets should be invested in productive farmland and other tangibles such as useful hand tools.
After you have your key logistics squared away, anything extra should be invested in silver and gold. I encourage my readers to avoid trouble, most importantly via relocation to safe areas where trouble is unlikely to visit.
But there may come an unavoidable day when you have to make a stand to defend your own family or your neighbors. Furthermore, if you value your liberty, then be prepared to fight for it, both for yourself and for the sake of your progeny. That is, that they have a will of their own, that somehow inspires their owners to murder and mayhem.
I liken this nonsensical belief to voodoo. The righteousness of their use is entirely up to their users, since like any other tool they can be used both for good or for ill. A firearm is just a tool with no volition. A rifle is no different than a claw hammer. A bulldozer can be used to build roads, or to destroy houses. A rifle can be used to drill holes in paper targets, or to dispatch a marauding bear, or to murder your fellow man. Again, the choice of uses is entirely up to the user.
But if it is used for good to defend life and property , then it is a tool for good. A firearm by itself has no sentience, no volition, no moral force, and no politics.
The proper term for this is an adiaphorous object—something that is neither good nor evil. A firearm is simply a cleverly-designed construction of metal, wood, and plastic in the form of a precision tool. The choice is yours. I prefer to be armed and vigilant rather than being at the mercy of some would-be slave master.
There is no notch in my ear. The Islamic slavers simply go and kidnap more of them. The only way to effectively stop armed slaver kidnappers is to train and equip large numbers of armed free men in the border villages.
In the modern context, you can "Just Say No" to slavery only with a battle rifle. The definitions of words should not change with every shift in the winds of public sentiment. Our society has already suffered from four decades of Situational Ethics.
Heaven help us in this new era of Situational Definitions. A rocket scientist or military engineer can teach you about Sympathetic Detonations, but it is 21st Century television commentators who have introduced us to the era of Sympathetic Denotations.
We now live in an Orwellian world where a semi-auto rifle is arbitrarily called an "assault rifle" if it has black plastic furniture, where a standard capacity magazine is called a "high capacity" magazine, where the confiscation and redistribution of wealth is dubbed "fairness. Hold fast to the true meaning of words and phrases, or we are doomed. State laws can be avoiding simply by moving, but what of unconstitutional Federal laws?
At that point we will have no choice but to rebel against tyranny. Since the alternative would be to live as little better than bleating sheep. When we reach that juncture I doubt that I will advocate expatriation. Most foreign lands have less freedom than we enjoy here in these United States. If I must die, then I will do so here in America, fully armed and facing my oppressors.
