  12. We Should Have Known. . . We’ve known for 5,000 years that mass spying on one’s own people is usually aimed at grabbing power and crushing dissent, not protecting us from bad guys. We’ve known for 4,000 years that debts need to be periodically written down, or the entire economy will collapse. And see this. We’ve known for 2,500 years that prolonged war bankrupts an economy. We’ve known for 2,000 years that wars are based on lies. We’ve known for 1,900 years that runaway inequality destroys societies. We’ve known for 1,700 years that torture is a form of terrorism. We’ve known for thousands of years that debasing currencies leads to economic collapse. We’ve known for millennia that – when criminals are not punished – crime spreads. We’ve known for thousands of years that the rich and powerful try to censor their critics under the guise of heresy. We’ve known for hundreds of years that the failure to punish financial fraud destroys economies, as it destroys all trust in the financial system. We’ve known for centuries that monopolies and the political influence which accompanies too much power in too few hands are dangerous for free markets. We’ve known for hundreds of years that companies will try to pawn their debts off on governments, and that it is a huge mistake for governments to allow corporate debt to be backstopped by government. We’ve known for centuries that powerful people – unless held to account – will get together and steal from everyone else. We’ve known for hundreds of years that standing armies and warmongering harm Western civilization. We’ve known for over 300 years that going into debt to pay for war ruins any nation. We’ve known for 200 years that allowing private banks to control credit creation eventually destroys the nation’s prosperity. We’ve known for two centuries that a fiat money system – where the money supply is not pegged to anything real – is harmful in the long-run. We’ve known for 200 years that a two-party system quickly becomes corrupted. We’ve known for over a century that torture produces false and useless information. We’ve known since the 1930s Great Depression that separating depository banking from speculative investment banking is key to economic stability. See this, this, this and this. We’ve known for 80 years that inflation is a hidden tax. We’ve known for 79 years that war is a racket that benefits the elites but harms everyone else. We’ve known since 1988 that quantitative easing doesn’t work to rescue an ailing economy. We’ve known since 1993 that derivatives such as credit default swaps – if not reined in – could take down the economy. And see this. We’ve known since 1998 that crony capitalism destroys even the strongest economies, and that economies that are capitalist in name only need major reforms to create accountability and competitive markets. We’ve known since 2007 or earlier that lax oversight of hedge funds could blow up the economy. And we knew before the 2008 financial crash and subsequent bailouts that: The easy credit policy of the Fed and other central banks, the failure to regulate the shadow banking system, and “the use of gimmicks and palliatives” by central banks hurt the economy Anything other than (1) letting asset prices fall to their true market value, (2) increasing savings rates, and (3) forcing companies to write off bad debts “will only make things worse” Bailouts of big banks harm the economy. The Fed and other central banks were simply transferring risk from private banks to governments, which could lead to a sovereign debt crisis. Postscript: Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it … and we’ve known that for a long time.

  13. The United Nations is a grand failure that has never worked and will never work. The idea of the U.N. was invented during the Second World War, when the term “United Nations” actually meant the wartime alliance of certain nations against other nations. From the very beginning, the fact that the “United Nations” included the Soviet Union, which had conspired with Nazi Germany to begin the Second World War and which engaged in aggressive war and genocide just like Nazi Germany, was a sick joke. Our Soviet “ally” let us fight Japan alone until the end of the war, and it occupied and enslaved those very nations in Eastern Europe that Britain and France had gone to war with Germany to protect. The structure of the organization was set as a part of the peace following the Second World War, with all the macabre features of that uneven peace. The permanent members of the Security Council were, and are, the Big Five of America, Britain, France, China, and Russia. China meant Free China, but now it means Communist China. Russia was the Soviet Union, but today Russia is only half the size of the old Soviet Union. Japan and Germany were not permanent members of the Security Council, although in any sane world, these two nations, the third and fourth largest economies in the world and both peaceful democracies, ought to be permanent members. Yet the legacy of the Second World War, when these two nations were the foes of the “United Nations,” remains. India, which gained independence after the United Nations was formed, also ought to be a permanent member of the Security Council, but it is not. The United Nations was created primarily to preserve peace, but it has never succeeded in that at all, nor has it prevented the genocides that so horrified the civilized world after the Second World War ended. The reasons why are pretty clear. Most of the “nations” represented in the United Nations are little more than brutal ruling gangs, who suppress captive peoples like the Kurds and Tibetans and who routinely deny the most basic human rights to those they rule.

  14. This article was written by Daisy Luther and originally published at The Organic Prepper. Editor’s Comment: Keeping up-to-date on relevant information, and keeping mentally alert and prepared are very important aspects of prepping, and readying yourself for survival during an emergency, or how to handle a long and drawn-out collapse. If you know this stuff, use it. If you don’t, catch up and learn – pay the information forward and teach these skills to friends, allies and the next generation. Armed with enough knowledge, itself a form of power, we could take back our country and lives. 25 Books Every Prepared Family Should Own by Daisy Luther Preppers tend to be relatively old-fashioned, and one thing that most of us have in common is a yen to own physical copies of information that we find valuable. While ebooks are popular, inexpensive (sometimes even free), and take up zero space, every person who preps knows that those tomes of information might not be available in a down-grid situation. Your library will only be accessible until your Kindle dies. But when you have all of those books on the shelf, you can access the information over and over, for as long as your emergency lasts. (Plus, I just really prefer physical books.) There are tons of other great books out there, so if your favorite isn’t included on the list, that doesn’t mean that I found anything wrong with it. The following list is of the books that I personally own and have found to be valuable. (Note: Due to shameless self-promotion, my own books are on the list and marked with a *.) Here are the 25 preparedness books that I recommend that you all have in your personal libraries. General Preparedness The Prepper’s Blueprint The Survival Mom: How to Prepare Your Family for Everyday Disasters and Worst-Case Scenarios Urban Emergency Survival Plan SAS Survival Handbook (This is the perfect size to slip into a purse, backpack, or glovebox) Prepper’s Survival Hacks Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family Food The Pantry Primer: A Prepper’s Guide to Whole Food on a Half Price Budget* The Prepper’s Cookbook Food Storage for Self-Sufficiency and Survival Water The Prepper’s Water Survival Guide* Health Prepper’s Natural Medicine The Survival Medicine Handbook When There Is No Doctor Where There Is No Dentist Prepping for a Pandemic Self-sufficiency The Encyclopedia of Country Living The Prepper’s Canning Guide* (coming in March) Tools for Survival The Backyard Homestead Bushcraft 101 The Complete Tightwad Gazette Home and Personal Defense Prepper’s Home Defense Contact: A Tactical Manual for Post-Collapse Survival Prepper’s Armed Defense Rapid Fire: Tactics for High Threat, Protection, and Combat Operations What books would you add to the list?

  15. Do you remember the holy trinity of survival? Food, water, shelter: does that ring a bell? Also, do you know the rule of threes? You can survive for 3 minutes without oxygen, for 3 days without water and for 3 weeks without food. Well, how about hypothermia? Do you have any idea how long will you last out there in the cold during a wintertime apocalypse? The thing is that in an extremely cold environment, if you cannot find or you cannot build an emergency shelter, you’ll die from exposure in a matter of hours. It’s also worth noting that you’ll be totally incapacitated a long time before your actual death. Cold has this effect on people, you know. In a winter outdoors survival situation, your worst enemies are frostbite and hypothermia along with other conditions like dehydration, but let’s concentrate upon what will kill you first. Besides wearing the proper (layered) clothing, knowing how to build a snow shelter in an emergency situation in order to maintain a proper body temperature should be mandatory for any outdoors enthusiast. Winter presents many survival challenges but also a lot of lessons. Now is the time to practice unique survival skills. CLICK HERE to subscribe to Survivopedia’s newsletter and get this month’s Free Report about how to practice your survival skills during winter. The best thing about snow is that it makes for an excellent insulator. We’ve already talked about it in our article about how to insulate your homestead using snow during the cold winter months in order to save on your energy bill. How To Build a Snow Shelter Snow can be used for building a survival shelter, also known as a quinzee, which is basically a large pile of snow, a mound of sorts, that has been hollowed out, thus making for a cave-like place to rest, sleep, keep yourself alive and so on and so forth. Basically, a quinzee is a man-made snow cave inspired most probably from what dogs and wolves do when a blizzard’s coming their way: i.e. they dig a hole in the snow and they wait for the storm to pass. The thing is, for building a quinzee you’ll definitely require a snow shovel or something similar, as you’ll have to move around and dig out a lot of snow. The best design in an emergency survival scenario, especially if you’re out there alone and you lack basic tools, is the snow trench shelter which is easier to build using just your hands. To begin with, you should be aware of 2 main things: First, practice makes perfect. Therefore, you should practice building a snow shelter in your backyard using meager means for as long as it takes. Don’t use snow blowers and high-tech stuff. That’s cheating. I am talking about acquiring the skills first because theoretical knowledge alone won’t save your life in a survival scenario; it’s just not enough. Second, while practicing DIY-ing a snow shelter, you’ll realize the amount of effort and elbow grease that it takes for piling and packing snow, then removing some of it for just a one-person space. Even if it’s 10 degrees outside, you’ll be breaking a sweat constantly, and that’s particularly dangerous from multiple points of view in a real life winter survival scenario, because of the risk of dehydration and hypothermia, not to mention exhaustion. Most experts agree that building a snow shelter is not a feasible endeavor for just one person, especially if you try to do it in a hurry and you lack basic tools (like a shovel), so fair warning. However, it’s also very true that when confronted with imminent death, humans actually gain superpowers in the form of adrenaline kicks, hence you might have a chance after all, so don’t despair just yet. Another thing to remember is to never travel alone, even if we’re talking about short distances. You can easily get lost in a blizzard and find yourself in a world of pain. Now, the equipment you have at your disposal and the environment will determine the type of snow shelter you can build: a quinzee or a snow trench. Step 1. Find a proper location As usual, location is everything, so before starting digging, you should select the proper spot for your snow shelter. Always avoid windy slopes and areas of rockfall. In other words, never dig your snow shelter in the path of a potential rockfall or avalanche. Also, if you’re building on a windy slope, where the wind blows against your shelter, is very dangerous as snow can easily clog the entrance of your shelter overnight when you’re sleeping, thus preventing fresh air to get inside. You know what happens with asphyxia, right? In short, you’ll be dead without even knowing it. Step 2: Find an are with deep snow Next, try to find an area with deep snow, thus saving a lot of work. Ideally, you should look for a snowdrift that’s at least 5 feet deep. The consistency of the snow is another factor, as fresh snow tends to be powdery, thus pretty difficult to work with because it’s prone to collapsing when you’re trying to make a cave. The good news is that once disturbed, snow tends to harden, so if time is on your side, you should pile it up and wait for nature to take its course. So, considering that you’ve already determined the size of the snow shelter you want to build and you’ve located the sweet spot for it, you should begin with stomping out the diameter of the snow shelter (a quinzee in this particular case) while wearing snow-shoes (provided you have them) thus packing the interior down. In this way, you’ll create a strong platform upon which to build your snow shelter by eliminating layers in the snow. Video first seen on OutsideFun1. Step 3: Pile up the snow Now it’s time to start piling up the snow, assuming you have a shovel. As I already warned you, this may take a while, especially if you want to let the mound set up for a few hours, during which you may start building a fire, take a bite to eat while you wait, etc. This wait time is essential when building a quinzee, as it allows for sintering to kick in. Sintering is a fancy word which depicts the energy released by snow while moving inside the mound you’ve created, making for the snow crystals to bond together, thus acquiring structural integrity. Basically, sintering prevents the cave from collapsing over you while you’re sleeping inside; that’s the lesson to be taken home. Step 4: Dig a tunnel into the snow pile Now, provided your mound has firmed up, you have to start digging your hole and you should begin with punching a few sticks (a foot long) through the mound, as they’ll serve as guides while you dig up your slumber chamber. In the next phase, you’ll start digging the entry tunnel. You can plan on spending 2 or 3 hours digging the chamber area. You can use tarps, pans or snow shoes to scoop out/remove the snow that resulted from digging. When you’ve reached your guide sticks, stop digging. The ideal wall thickness is about 10 inches, so keep that in mind when designing your quinzee and putting your thickness markers in. Always remember to punch a few fist-size holes to let fresh air in. How To Build a Snow Trench Survival Shelter If the quinzee is not an option because you don’t have the time, the energy, the tools or none of the above (or you’re alone), you must go for a snow trench instead. Video first seen on Snowy Range Survival. In an emergency survival scenario, the best alternative is to dig a trench in the snow and use a tarp or something similar (wood branches covered with snow for example) as a roof of sorts. You can use tree branches or ski poles to prop the tarp up. Snow tranches are easier and faster to dig, but they’ll lack both the comfort and the warmth of a proper-made quinzee. Also, you can be buried in case of a heavy snowstorm, so keep that in mind too. As for my final words: if you’re the outdoors type and you’re roaming in the wild during the winter on a regular basis, always make sure you have the proper clothing and equipment that you’ll require in a survival scenario, including a compact snow shovel and never travel alone. Think about our ancestors, how they survived during the biggest winters in history and what mistakes they did – you don’t want to repeat them, trust me! If you’ve ever built a snow shelter or have any questions, please share them with us in the comment section below.

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
