Folks, I am just vapour locked. I’m starting to see a lot of stuff like this.
I love Claire. She’s got all the right credentials: Christian, conservative, compassionate, fair, prepper/pro-self sufficiency - she’s just an all round good egg. A lot of others are echoing her ideas and even publishing books about it. Their strategy is to fall back, establish their own spaces, keep their culture alive and maybe even fork the establishment from time to time.
I know I am a unrepentant dink and an unfailing dissident and contrarian. I will look at chit others refuse to see. Claire and others are just beginning to see the leviathan in our govts and seeing the need to actually do something about it. I’ve been seeing that monster most of my adult life - I am also a gun owner and the govt has had a hate-on for guys like me for decades. The same one they have got Christians now. And white men. And…and…etc. She’s right, but she’s only looking at herself, her community and her friends and ignoring everything outside that. She is steadfastly refusing to look at the devil closing in around her and how he operates. I am feeling the need to critique because there are realities she is ignoring that make her strategy a pipe dream at best, and cultural suicide at worst.
- There is no place to fall back to. There are no pristine wild spaces anymore where you can have access to clean water, lumber, game, pasture and set up a sustainable life off grid. Those places are all occupied now and everything in the US landmass is accessible to everyone. Even if those places were available, it would take years for you to prepare to live on them, never mind defending them. Even with all the modern conveniences most city people are not cut out for rural life.
- at least one half of our citizenry is now fully batshit crazy, and will actively side with the gubbimint and the cultural fascists lining up against us. In my neck of the woods the women all went off their gourds at once. My daughter decided she was queer and that I was an abusive oppressive father and ran away to join the circus. The family matriarchs ordered me to dash out after her and beg her forgiveness and I told them to shove it too, and get the hell out of our family business and mind their own. It got nasty and we all fell out. In other branches of the family women divorced their men and came to be at odds with their kids. The totalitarianism is not just in our own gubbimint, it’s in our families. If you think these shitlib family nutters are going to sit back and watch you prosper while they suffer the problems they made for themselves… you need to think again. Look at the Karens and covitards that will snitch on their neighbours for having a BBQ. Or the cop that lives next door and expects you to back the blue when he beats up old ladies for not wearing a mask, or stands idly by while the BLM noggers burn your neighborhood down. Do you have the stones to cut these kinds of friends and relatives out of your life? For good? You will have to for anything like this to succeed.
- Christians have been falling back and trying to regroup for the last 50 years. The reason for this is that the bad guys have weaponized the institutions against it. In the media Christians are clowns, hypocrites, pedos. In the courts, activist judges rule against them. Bake the cake, bigot. No, you cannot preach about the evils of homosexuality, socialism, feminism, or the actions of perverts and degenerates. The cops will send squaddies around to bust your pastors if there are too many people in the church during this fake plague. Our doctors hold Christians in contempt and will not treat them if they aren’t vaxxed… but they’ll pull out the stops for HIV patients, the morbidly obese, the noggered gang bangers that get shot in drug turf wars, and do abortions. In school kids are being sexualized in elementary, and being taught to hate themselves, their gender, the faith, and their country. Claire is ignoring all this stuff: the bad guys have evolved weapons to seek you out, infiltrate and subvert your spaces. Until you develop a counter to those weapons… you’re toast. The answer to these things, at this point… will almost certainly involve kinetic and ballistic solutions.
Aaaand this is where most Christians will shut me off and toon out. Violence of any kind is off the table for biblical and scriptural reasons. So I guess the guys that founded our countries weren’t Christians? The army chaplains that went to war aren’t Christians? Anyone that puts on a uniform can’t be a Christian? This is the kind of stuff we squabble about while our ruling class ponders more lockdowns, mandatory “vaccines”, vaccine passports, etc. Sorry folks… but my mind is beginning to wobble. From where I sit the soapbox and ballot box failed.
We will hang separately I guess.
