What Collapse Looks Like

In case you missed it, the EBT system that provides welfare for about 15% of the American population went down on Saturday. Mass chaos ensued.

You should consider this a warning and an opportunity to learn and reflect. I know I do.

In a real crisis that affects ALL of us (martial law, curfews, flu pandemic, failure of the power grid, or a shutdown of the banks), you would realistically only have a few hours – not days – to collect the supplies you needed.

Of course, my first question to you is: “Why are you collecting supplies after the shit has hit the fan?”

Failing to plan is planning to fail. Not prepping is dumb and so predictably helpless and Murkan that I can only compare you to an EBT card holder mindlessly cleaning out a Wal-Mart.

Guess what? These kinds of little “warm ups” for the Big Collapse are happening with such frequency now that we can all take advantage of them to get our game up to snuff.

If you’re not raiding a Wal-Mart, you’ll likely be comfortably at home (like me) watching it all play out. The news reports of “shots fired at grocery stores” will not shock us but it might send us to our pantries to count cans.

After Day Three has come and gone and the “shots fired” are now in our neighborhoods, what will we do?

If you “bug out”, please remember that your neighbors who “bug in” might consider the “mi casa, su casa” rule to be in effect.

So that was Saturday with its little taste of the gloomy-doomy future.

On Sunday, DC’s finest riot police were called in to quell a minor disturbance by some crusty old codgers who expect us to respect them for some “sacrifices” they made two generations ago. Yeah, right. Good luck with that men. Just don’t forget that they gunned down an innocent woman last week in front of her child just for making a wrong turn in front of the Spite House.

Why all this collective spazzing out and why now? Well, why not? I’ve always advocated for an accelerated collapse rather than a delayed one. Hurry it up and get it over with so we can get on with the rebuilding of society.

Oh, and there’s a coronal mass ejection due to arrive in the next couple of days too. Just thought you’d like to know!

In closing, I’d like to offer this superlative quote I found in Mark Steyn’s hilarious book “After America“:

“Nothing is more senseless than to base so many expectations on the state, that is, to assume the existence of collective wisdom and foresight after taking for granted the existence of individual imbecility and improvidence.”
– Frederic Bastiat 1845
