All around us, every day, we see signs that America is coming unhinged. Riots in St. Louis. Political witch-hunts. The seeming death of free speech. Opportunistic looters behind every storm. Speakers showed down and attacked at colleges. The ridiculous and deadly spectactle of Neo-Nais nuts versus Communist agitators in Charlottesville.

 

Two recent articles from the prepper-sphere illustrate these issues. The second suggests survival action may be in order.

 

Ken Jorgustin, at Modern Survival asks, “Is Our Nation Breaking Apart?”

And, Derrick Grant tackles the same issues at Backdoor Survival: Is Political Violence Something to Prep For?

Jorgustin asks if our great nation is breaking up? Sadly, it looks like it might be. Perhaps this is inevitable.

 

Rather than ponder or pontificate, he posted some very interesting comments that MSB has received of late. Please read those. See if you’re thinking some of same things or ways.

 

He has a warning for honest people of the pro-America stripe:


“I am not a ‘conspiracy nut’, however I firmly and logically believe that some of what has been going on has been intentionally orchestrated and funded. When 97% of “the news” is negative towards traditional American ideals and anyone who represents it is attacked, this is not coincidence nor is it conspiracy. It is orchestrated.


A question is “why”? I already have a pretty good idea why. However I’ll let you discuss this in the comments below.”

 

Read those remarks and draw your own conclusions.

 

Knowing that something is definitely wrong and that it seems to be getting worse by the week, maybe it’s time (past time) to start prepping for the turmoil and possible outcomes.

 

That’s what Mr. Grant examines for Backdoor Survival.


“In case you haven’t noticed, there’s an increasing level of violent political confrontations on U.S. soil. A new study by the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at Cal State San Bernardino confirms this by stating that political confrontations are rising in California by nearly double. Just last week there was another case of police cracking down on violent protests in Portland, Oregon. This is a disturbing trend that should concern not only every prepper but every American. The increase in violence, from my view, is in part the result of the “alt-left” adopting strategies of the “alt-right.” I say “in part” because this is more a symptom of a greater challenge: a widening shift between political ideologies here in America (and abroad). There is seemingly fewer people in the middle and greater numbers of far left and far right. Moderates are now chastised by the right as being too liberal and by the left as being too conservative. Where is there to be any common ground and resolution in the face of this trend? What will it mean for American society going forward if political sides can’t come together? What happens if each group’s success is defined only as shutting the other side down?”

 

We have problems from the far-left and the far-right. Sometimes it seems like they are deliberately fighting each other just to sow discord, to move some other agenda forward. The conspiracy angle. It’s not unlike professional wrestling, where two opposing sides war with each other – heels and faces – the end result is to keep you watching no matter what.

 

WWE is entertainment. What’s happening on our streets each day is just short of all-out war. There’s nothing entertaining about it unless your name is Lucifer or Ares.

And more just keeps coming – every day and everywhere.

 

Sadly, I think the answer to both title questions is “yes.” Thus it is time to prepare for the very real possibility for civil unrest, political or otherwise, near you.

 

In a way this can be treated like any other calamity. Food, water, security, and a bug out/in plan will go a long way. The difference, the truly sad part, is that these problems are manmade, born of human stupidity, arrogance, greed, and hate. These issues will change our nation, our culture, and our way of life.

 

I’m confident we can somewhat safely insulate ourselves from direct trouble. But, what then? What do we do, how do we live, in a post-American world gone mad? Seems the odds of finding out are better than 50/50.

 

Read those two articles. Then, for more insight, please read this eye-opening (if depressing) account from Paul Craig Roberts.
