Some Myths About Survival: Part (2)

Some Myths About Survival: Part (2)

The community that brings us together includes all kinds of people, including some self-proclaimed survivalists who could be described as “tourists” of survival.

Or, to define them in another way, those who studied survival just enough, time to find the reasons why they could not or did not want to invest themselves in it.

Besides these, there are also people who have a misconception about vital points. We have mentioned some of these myths recently. There are others, as they come to mind …

There are people who spend a lot of money on stocks and miscellaneous equipment, seeming to forget that they should also prepare the most important thing, namely their mind. Because as much as to tell you that if a real chaos is triggered, then you will need something else than a stock of toilet paper to save your butt!

Things that you might consider important today will seem ridiculous to you on the day when you will be immersed in the unavoidable prospect of a long and cold winter, with no other option than to face it with the means of the ship and To stay alive.

Knowing the myths about survival will allow you, among other things,

Myth 1. Survival is just camping

Survival has nothing to do with camping. That’s pretty much anything but. When you go camping, and you can not shower for two days, this is not a real problem. Because you know you will be able to do it once back home.

But in a survival scenario, if you decide to go green or live in nature, then “camping” will be the real life. This means that you will have to find a way to keep your body and clothes clean enough for months or even years, whether it’s raining, selling, or snowing.

During a camping party, you can live with a few things for a few days, And you can always jump into your car to pick up what’s missing in the nearest store. But what will happen when all the shops are closed? How will you feel when all your habits have been turned upside down, not the time of a camping party, but for all that of an undetermined future?

These are some of the reasons why I have always had a doubt about wilderness survival courses. Not that they are bad or useless in themselves , but because they tend to give people a false idea of ​​survival , and especially their capacities; By making them believe that one can live outside for longer or shorter, without too much damage, Whereas this requires practice and expertise that can never be learned during internships.

Of course, it is not a criticism of the instructors; I am sure that the majority of them are real professionals. What I mean is that true survival in the green can not be learned in this way. It is learned by living in permanent contact with nature, and by struggling daily to obtain its subsistence. So try to start life in autarky in the country, as our peasants lived in the past, and you will understand what I mean …

Again, this is not a criticism . The fact is that even the soldiers of the troops, Elite would probably be unable to survive long in nature. Of course, with their barda, they could infiltrate a hostile territory, cross a jungle or exfilter it, but that would only be in the context of temporary missions. They are not trained to lead a trapper life, even though they would probably do better than the average Bekin because of their resistance to suffering.

A little trapper hut: does not it tempt you?

Myth 2. You can buy food and supplies for a very long time

The fact is, no. One day, everything you have accumulated will run out, and maybe even sooner than you thought, for reasons beyond your control. That day, it would be better for you and your family to know how to grow and / or harvest new sources of food, or build / integrate a community with people who know how to. You will also need to be able to transform these resources, even if it means grinding flour between two stones.

One day, you will have to wipe the back with a washable cloth instead of toilet paper.

One day, there will be no more bottles of gas in the local supermarket. Just as there will be nothing left on the shelves, anyway …

Myth 3. My neighbors will unite and help one another

You may tell me that I have published four articles on the defense of the neighborhood, and that it would be unwise to present them as an expression of a myth. Yes, I know …

But this should not prevent us from thinking of all our dear neighbors who have no idea what survival might be, and especially defense in case of major trouble. Or who could not bear the idea of ​​seeing their comfortable little life totally turned upside down overnight, when the reality of what we are going to catch up with them for a serious “rabbit shot” behind the ears.

What will happen when these people can not get their daily rations of cigarettes, beers, Prozac, sodas, TV, Macdo, and so on. ? Will they be people you can count on? For how long ?

These are just a few observations about the kind of people we might be dealing with; It is up to you to find the best solutions to meet them, depending on your environment and your possibilities.

Myth 4. If I buy enough gadgets, everything will be fine

If you really think that the company is on the verge of a major jolt, then you have to realize that it is no longer wagering to spend money in an inconsiderate manner. Instead, you should invest what you have in eminently practical things, and adopt reliable strategies.

The gadgets will break one day or another, and you will then have to learn to live without them. Why not start now?

In general, it is not the equipment that will determine your skills, but the reverse. It is your skills that should determine the choice of your equipment . You may feel comfortable or even invincible in a panoply of Punisher, but if you do not have his warrior skills, then your pretty outfit will not be of any use to you and you will pay him dearly for the moment came.

If you are a poor shooter, it is not by putting in your hands a rifle with 3000 euros equipped with a night vision scope that you will be better. In this case, be content with a good old shotgun and shotgun. No use and you will pay dearly for it when the time comes.

If you do not have real combat experience, or little physical condition, then it would probably not be a good idea to invest in a semiauto rifle in 7.62. If I were you, I would be satisfied with 5.56. Of course, you will not be able to shoot 500 meters, and then? Do you think this is essential in a situation of chaos? Have you ever tried to fire even 200 meters? Have you ever trudged for 3 days and 3 nights with a FN FAL in your hands? Have you ever fought for a whole day or more with lashes full of 308 chargers?

These are the right questions you should ask yourself, instead of considering that you will be systematically better because you will have better equipment, more powerful, or more.

7.62 NATO (.308) vs 5.56 (.223): double the weight and volume …

Myth 5. I can join my AfDB in case of chaos

This is probably the most imperfect, but nevertheless the most popular of the plans in the survivalistic milieu. To think that when everything is going to go in a spin, we will have been warned sufficiently in advance to be able to travel calmly the few tens or even hundreds of kilometers that separate us from our ADB, or the farm of this friend in whom we have projected us Install in case of chaos.

When the doors close behind us, the highways will be blocked, the streets of our cities and suburbs will be blocked, and no one will be able to go anywhere! Even if your base was only a few miles away from your usual place of living, you and your family may not be able to reach it.

If you are serious about survival, and you fully understand all the issues involved, then you should already find yourself in your country house or small rural village to live in self-sufficiency , or at least Towards this goal. Learn NOW what it means to actually live “outside the system”, not when the chaos will be all around you. You may even find this lifestyle much better than the one you know right now.

So yes, I know … You’re going to tell me you have a job in town, children, a house on credit, and lots of other things. I have no doubt you will find many more excuses. But that does not change the reality of the facts. Any honest economist will confirm it: We are going to the clash assured, if nothing else happens before. A gigantic collapse such as the world has never known, with a chain of dramatic consequences in a community country like ours.

What does that mean ? Nothing less than this: WE HAVE NO FUTURE.

Do you understand what I mean? We no longer have any future, any more than our children. This is what the current crisis in our professional outlook means . Whether it materializes in a year or in five will not change anything, we are in any case a reprieve.; In our ability to keep us alive and move on to be there when we will have to rebuild the world after.

If you work in any box just for your career or a golden retirement event, then you’d better leave from now on if you can. Because you will not receive any pension when the time comes. To believe that the state will be able to fulfill its obligations is also a myth, which must be realized. So why not offer your services in a small country village? If you are a locksmith in a big city, why not move to a quiet village? If you have useful skills and you are a real professional then it is certain that you will find work wherever you go.

In the small town where I live, it is practically impossible to find a gardener, unless you order him three months in advance or be in his papers. And I’m not talking about someone who knows how to graft trees, carve them, or other real skills of the same kind. I’m just talking about a guy who can mow the lawn once a week, cut a few branches, and take it all to the landfill. How much do you earn with your work? Because a gardener here is a hundred euros a day. So imagine a plumber …

Friedrich Nietzsche said, rightly, that “Whatever does not kill us makes us stronger”. It is always astonishing to see what man is capable of going through or accomplishing when he depends only on himself. C ‘

One last thing for those who would not understand why it would be time to get out of the quiet comfort of an urban lifestyle. Maybe you do not follow the news? Or only those given by the traditional media who claim that everything is as good as it should be? Because in fact, but I can not believe you do not already know it, it’s not true. Everything is not going as well as they claim. Multiple sources of information and honest professionals postpone rather disturbing events that never make headlines in the press or official media.

Although it is true that the majority of so-called “conspiracy” sites tend to blacken the picture and revel in a certain catastrophism, The facts are large enough to show that they are not always wrong. The escalation of tensions we have recently witnessed in Syria is simply terrifying, and God knows how it will end. In the present state of affairs, there is nothing more or less than the departure of the third.

Whether it’s an economic collapse, a civil war or a global conflict, our leaders obviously want to get us there. Once again, after the two great butcheries of the past century. Or genocide should be said, because it is indeed a genocide of the white peoples.

And considering what is preparing, it seems that we are soon left for a turn … Escalation of tensions that we have recently witnessed in Syria is simply terrifying, and God knows how it will end. In the present state of affairs, there is nothing more or less than the departure of the third.
