I hear what you are saying, and appreciate your reply very much. I am in the mindset of a native American, so owning land is an imperfect concept,
one which will not exist in the future. I don't need to own the land, to survive on it. I need only keep my family/people fed, hidden, and warm.
If the SHTF, this means that all white people will be as hopeless and pitiful as the natives have been for 200 years. Whites blacks, indians and
everyone, will be shunted toward government housing, i.e. "the res". But always there'll be people living in the woods, eating small game and
I don't need to own the land, to survive on it. I need only keep my family/people fed, hidden, and warm. Eventually, natural order says that
civilization will return again, is just will ebb for a moment while we pass through this tough transition.
Instead of asking who is holding the S you should ask who gave the S to those people.
You are so right. It is the people, who gave the power to those who can fling the S, and create this panic.
But whereas you, me and everyone on ATS is obviously above-average in terms of intelligence, I think we may have to agree that the mass of common folk
need a simpler solution. It's almost as if the 20% of the smart folks on Earth are compelled
to dominate the other 80% so as not to have to
anything to them. Explaining and making people understand is harder them just silently rolling your eyes and hurling the S at the fan,
making all the people scatter for cover.
Anyway, the best places in the West, are the places where you yourself are found to be a generous, protective person. I believe a person carries
their past with them, and if a person is good in spirit, their foot will be guided by forces external to this world. Rather than worrying about
"Where will I hide?" people should be worried about "What kind of person will I be, while hiding under stress?" ...If under stress, and lack of
police, a person can still act lawfully and believes in a benevolent Creator who watches and smiles upon good deeds, then it doesn't matter
you go, because the people there, will respect you, and will covenant with you.
