It's a rambling video but there are some real truths in it. I've included my notes from the video.

On the second point, there is an illustrative example brewing South of Seattle.
Homeless group takes up residence in Fife motel as operator turns to city for help


  • Start preparing. Things such as supplies, food and water, packs for your vehicles. Get your preps in order.
  • Crime and violence. Expect it to continue and to be politicized (e.g. the robber becomes a political activist).
  • Economy. Socialism does a wonderful job of wrecking an economy, increasing inflation, and destroying a currency. Expect inflation.
  • Keeping your views to yourself.
  • Looking after your children. Beware the brainwashing in school, propaganda from socialist governments. Find out what their teacher said, what is in their homework (watch out for hidden propaganda). You cannot shelter your kids from the entire world. Talk to your kids, teach them how to quietly identify and question.
  • Start your own business.
  • Become harder, tougher, stronger. Especially mentally. You need to be more resilient as things become more difficult.
  • Stay healthy in all aspects. Mental health. Physical health, exercise, and staying in shape. Eating well. Relationships - with your spouse, with your kids, with your family.
  • Moving to a State with people that have similar values.
  • Be ready to bug out if it comes down to it. It’s easier to make the jump if you already have an idea of how you would do it.

@Texas40 I agree with you, but I don't see it happening. More and more people will simple want.

I am reminded of this article. Transferism, not Socialism.

Agreed too many have been indoctrinated in to the “I deserve it” cuz Im me club. Not the “I have to work and earn it club”.

Sad part is by the time the majority of people realize how sideways its gotten it will be too late.

Those who dont learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Here come the socialist ideals pushed by the likes of Hitler and Stallin and people are sucking it up.

If you really look at the history of Hitler and his rise the similarities to today are there.

Control the media
Control the information
Control the population.

All done in such a way that the masses do not realize it is even happening.

We saved Europe in the 20th century.

Wonder who will save America in the 21st?

Not trying to be funny, but l think my days of being a white-hat good guy may come to an end. We've seen countless examples from history and contemporaneously what happens to the good guys: they only win in the movies.
In real life the survivors and people who thrive are lowlifes and scum.
I don't know what form that will take for me personally, l don't have it in me to be a ruthless criminal. But black markets abound and criminal enterprises flourish in socialist utopias. The weak get stepped-on and criminal entrepreneurs rise to the top, usually with the tacit acknowledgment of corrupt officials. Bribes, the occasional shakedown, and violent rivals are the cost of doing business in that world.

With that form of government, the straights have to be concerned with both sides of the law. There is practically zero space for most of us as-is. Meaning: people who just want to be left alone. In that kind of dystopian society the normies are dragged into every sort of conflict... some from factions within the power structure and from those outside of it.

Eventually things settle into a rhythm which becomes the New Normal, but they never actually get better. Folks adapt.

@Jonnyuma DROL?

Something like that, yes.
I was unfamiliar with the acronyms DROL and WROL (read them before but forgot) so l clicked and read... the writer has a pretty good grasp of societal breakdown, power vacuums, and Darwinism. All are in play in the "After".

Many people mistake Anarchy for WROL. Anarchy has rules, although exactly WHO gets to decide what they are is fluid. That and the reliance on voluntary compliance and supposed absence of enforcement can bring about militias of vigilantes, torches, pitchforks, and nooses. Similar to most forms of DROL, due process as we know it disappears completely.

DROL is what we're much more likely to experience in the 21st century. Militarized enforcement with an emphasis on new crimes that threaten the power structure: picture the punishable thought crimes of Stalin's USSR coupled with today's surveillance state... scary stuff for sure.

George Orwell was a dedicated socialist who believed that that form of government could be enacted and maintained without violence. His tomes called-out goon squads and gulags, not the system itself.
He was wrong and his insights into human nature under stress (anthropomorphic farm animals too) stopped short of exploring one's natural inclinations to be a free individual vs just a part of a bigger machine controlled by others.

For those unfamiliar... like me:
DROL=Different Rule of Law
WROL=Without Rule of Law

Or you(we) COULD fight back against the socialist trends and retake AMERICA.

More likely we all roll over and play along as evidenced by current events.
This country has lost its ballz so I seriously doubt there's any resolve or the required number of people to do anything other than continue to be "politically correct" and NOT call out the stupidity of the American population that exists these days.

The ideas and ideals we once had here have evaporated and we're left with weak-willed people unable and unwilling to say "enough" when it comes to the ills of our present society. While it can be attributed to elected politicians they didn't seize power---they were elected by people who want to believe their promises of being afforded better lives with little to no work necessary to be granted it.

With the larger voting block(s) skewing towards younger and "people of color" who'll become highly active in electing their candidates the USA is quickly sliding towards their agendas. I'm nearly 70 y/o and have simply NEVER seen things so f'd up as they are today---and with little hope its bound to improve anytime soon. We've become so fractionalized the sense of what's good for the country is seen as destructive to the individual.

Even though these days we here this BS of "we're in this together" repeatedly its never been further from the truth.

I don't know--and have stopped caring for the most part while massing as much ammo as I can afford---I get this sinking feeling it won't be enough in days to come.

Early 20th century rural electrification= socialism
Mid 20th century rural phone lines= socialism
Modern rural broadband= socialism
Military= socialism
Police= socialism
National Highway system, State highway system, regional roads= socialism
All of these were created by bipartisan groups
People taking what isn't theirs isn't socialism, it's theft. While the parks and public spaces are owned and paid for by taxes, nobody has a right to sequester these spaces for themselves to the exclusion of others.
Don't confuse "homeless rights" (note this is in quotes as it is not an affirmed and legally recognized fact) and squatting with Socialism, Anarchy, or liberal politics.
