dominatrix


DOMINATRIX

Every once in a great while we take time out from arguing about the reasons behind the ammo shortage, making fun of geriatrics or talking about the most energy efficient stewpots and casually discus the impending global hothouse and/or icebox which will kill us all.  Not too often.  I’ve read such books as Five Degrees or Green Sky and while alarming ( thus tingling my nipples as who wouldn’t love such Doomer Porn ) I tend to mostly discount them not because they are wrong but because I get tired of spending $15 on dead trees that some supposed tree hugger killed to warn against Gore Warming ( as a minion so eloquently observed, when you are falling off the cliff it doesn’t matter if you were pushed or tripped.  Man- made, solar activity, planetary realignment- the cause isn’t important if we are collapsing ) and our only way to salvation lies in a dictatorship monitoring our carbon emissions.  One, ain’t no damn government going to stop what is keeping them in power.  When the corporations and the banks and the politicians all profit off growth, no growth for the sake of environmental salvation is a non-starter.  The notion is glittery unicorns.  Two, the history of mankind is always and almost without exception ( the exceptions prove the rule ) that of environmental degradation for growth ( which is both profitable and a survival mechanism ) followed by complete die-off and collapse.  So, all these books talking about collective action is so much bullspit.  I’ve got a better chance of eating Sharon Stone’s tuna taco than the earth does of being saved.

However, if one reads too much on these kinds of things ( my current fav is Survival Acres.  We disagree on a lot, but as far as doomer sites go we are more aligned than most others ) you can’t help but get a smidge worried.  As a good little minion, it is not your job to blindly follow me nor ( especially ) any other “expert” but to work on achieving the highest level of paranoia possible.  The paranoid survive, not the crowd of lemmings ( even if that group of lemmings-what do you call a grouping of lemmings?- is dressed in camo and tinfoil hats ).  I think it behooves all of us to try to reach Doomer Nirvana and think of the worse that can happen and try to prep for that.  To me, that is a ELE.  Extinction Level Event ( the only cool thing about the idiot movie with Morgan Freeman about the comet strike was the confusion about the event being thought of as a woman’s name ).  Elle to me seems to be one top level bitch, a dominatrix who chains you up and under the guise of sexual pleasure tricks you when she shoves broken glass up your anus.  Whether caused by man-made pollution, or a comet strike, or nuclear war or several super volcano’s going off, when the clouds roll in for several years, almost everything dies.  If man is lucky, a few diverse breeding pairs survive globally.

Now, granted, this is a very low probability event.  On the other hand, everyone seems to be prepping for the event that happens several times a year, natural disaster.  And while that is all fine and good, a bug-out bag and a garden are only short term insurance.  If anything at all happens outside an ice storm, most preppers/survivalists are no better off than the general populace.  And I don’t know about you, but being lumped together with those scumbag arseholes, the mouth breathers who live on cell phones and shop for entertainment are a subhuman species I want nothing to do with.  I want to be different, and that means I’m not concerned about camouflage four wheel drive dune buggies but more along the lines if my mule will have any grass or water to live.  I don’t lump myself in with the yuppie survivalist scum, nor the tree hugging climate alarmists.  I don’t expect my neighbor or my First Kenyan to save me.  I need to do that myself.  And to me, a retreat is worthless if the climate is going to change.  Bugging out is just a refugee with a gun and a case of MRE’s.  If the worse comes to pass, and it very well could because it’s happened before ( in recent memory, the giant herd animals dying with climate change and agriculture taking over- if you believe that hypothesis ), you have few options.

*

I know you all want freeze dried varied menus, and semi-auto death dealers, but if you believe at all that the best worst case scenario is wishful thinking, you need a lot more food than what you can afford in #10 cans.  You need grains, and tons of it.  After a five to ten year supply, minimum, you can add to your menu.  All it is, is a minimum calorie dump.  It ain’t balanced, it ain’t tasty.  But it will last you longer than cannibalism.  And it may be your only hope, if you are honest with yourself.  If you strip away all false hope ( you need hope, just not that kind ), an ELE might well be baked into the cards and that is your only hope.  Best case happens, you have a stash to split several ways amongst your children, or a heck of a lot of trade goods.  It certainly is better than cash under the mattress.  And, with plastic costs rising and drought not going away, this might be your only chance to get squared away.

Gil suggested “apocalypse” as the Amazon K-book search word.  I’ve had better luck ( as in, fewer zombie novels ) with “survival” or “survivalism”.  Just beware the hack Ahern has published all his books again, and at a huge mark-up.  I didn’t mind spending $5 in the day for his pulp fiction, but $8 or $10 for a K-book is just greedy for a dated reprint.

    1. Pass the word. I'd try "he's an asshole, but funny".

    2. Jim, I cannot get your blog feed to work. That probably doesn't help your readership.

    3. Can anyone hack into Rawles and redirect his readers here? One or two might stick around, the others will put their AR's to their heads as they realize there aren't any MRE ads here.

  3. Isn't Blood, Brains & Bullets a zombie novel? :p
    The first chapter of BBB is the funniest, tightest, most bad-ass zombie story I ever read.

    Also free Bugout bag essentials EMT perspective
    The Essential guide to prepping
    Doomsday prepping crash course

    I can neither confim or deny the quality of said K-books.

    1. I don't hate ALL zombie books. I bought the Fish Hatchery one because it claims to be about empire building- right up my alley. BBB just looked too cool so I had to try. But, 99% of zombie books pretty much blow me.

  4. Why dont you talk some about the post collapse empires, the disposition existing ones (USA, Russia, China) and growth of the new ones.
    What besides military force is their monopoly (USA - Tech, Oil, and Money Printing; Egypt - Water, Religion, slaves; Rome - trade, tolerance (yep they were tolerant for their time until USA), Wine/Olives)
    Where will they expand to, where will they choose or be unable to expand to, what unexpect orders might they hand to their peoples?
