Who To Listen To?

The internet, and the world, is a big place and we’re all guilty of taking (and giving) bad advice.

 

To get a bit nerdy, it boils down to accurate information and data clusters. Let me explain;

 

1) There are two types of experience: personal and observable.

 

2) There are a few types of opinions: ones with no experience, ones with differing degrees of personal experience, and ones with differing degrees of observed experience.

 

 

Some opinions are greater than others. Your local pawn shop and gunsmith dudes opinion is greater than the guy on the street that shoots a couple times a year, but a person who was a door kicker with multiple deployments and now trains over a thousand people a year comes out on top.

 

Now you can better select who to listen to and who’s opinion weighs more, but what about the cluster data?

Since the US has been at war for over a decade, we have many warfighters that have become efficient at their trade and relay that experience to the public. However; experiences vary and this is where “data points” come in.

 

What do they agree on?

 

If you find experts in their fields and 90% agree on a brand, an item, or a method of doing something, you’d be good to listen. If 25-50% agree on something, it’s probably a good rule of thumb or an option. If only one of them is saying it, take it into consideration and see if it fits in to your purpose for doing X.

However; If one expert has an opinion and all other experts are against it… its probably a crap opinion, be hesitant to follow it. I’ll post a pic below for a visual.

 

See my post on purpose and mission, it should help to select what you're listening for. https://www.mymilitia.com/blogs/entry/36-mission-purpose-asking-questions/

 

 

There are so many trends that people waste money on, I’d like to help that learning curve.

There are people out there willing to bet their life on crap that someone said was good (but wasn't), I’d like to save your life.

 

lifetime warranty” isn’t any good if you’re dead.

One thing you didn't touch on is what I call "the free shit army". Those are guys who have substantial followings and some demonstrable experience to boot but wouldn't give a bad review because it would jeopardize their access to free stuff to review and reduce their income from monetization of their videos.  You can sometimes spot them because they will often call what is a big PITA a minor inconvenience.

i know what you're talking about and could name some names (but why give free publicity, lol). this would go under the category of "their opinion, and no one else agrees". one also has to keep in mind that some folks will promote brand X, then get sponsored/endorsed by them later.

All i can give for input to this thread is that Information is everywhere. Who i am with may not be the same as you are with. I belong to  secret society called the Patriot Cells of America and we are becoming active. My induction was in 1972  I have progressed because I am what you term as a person who understand our nations intentions at the first. The Constitution has been changed to protect the guilty, this is maybe a broad statement but it has a caveat  Ive been blessed to know many patriots such as yourselves. with that said , Im here to tell you to trust but verify  from those you think you follow because even the best of patriots can sometimes get things wrong. As for  making a living from what you do is a question all must answer for credibility is our most important product.

   I have been around for many years and only have ibeen able to speak freely lately................. My job was to join listen watch and report to my Bosses my thoughts of each  militia group i visited. Remember now im no longer in the service to my Country but i use my skills for other patriots and have even been part of the Q intelligence Anons. Why do i step out now?? because i never gave any of my patriots away except for those i knew we could trust and many work in our system on your(the Patriots) behalf today.

 

     the game is drawing to a close . President Trump will continue to be president.  people you know may well become part of those who committed crimes against this nation. Keep eyes open . those of you who want to work for the betterment of this site must learn intelligence and how to grade for with out good intel we only muddle through this mess created by those of the Deep State as well as foreign actors.  Im far from perfect But i am a Patriot to and for this Great nation called the United States of America.

  Thankyou  QR

That's cool and all, but that doesn't have much to do with this blog. Is not about mysterious internet sources, it's about general knowledge pertaining to gear and skills. Not about gathering Intel.
