Poor Man Survival
Self Reliance tools for independent minded people…
Only one battle really matters now: the one between the Socialist-Dems [Marxists] & the rest of us.
All over the Western world, ever since 9/11, there have been incremental steps toward what many liberty advocates would call a "police state," a system in which governments are no longer restricted by the boundaries of civil liberties and are given the power to do just about anything they want in the name of public safety. The use of "the law" as a tool for injecting tyranny into a culture is the first step of all totalitarians.
The idea is that by simply writing government criminality into the law books, that criminality somehow becomes justified by virtue of legal recognition. It's all very circular. Whenever government abuse of the people is initiated, it is always initiated in the name of what's "best for society as a whole." To save society, the individuals that make up a society must be sublimated or destroyed. This mentality is the complete opposite of what the Founding Fathers in America fought and died for, but as Thomas Jefferson once admitted:
"Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual."
In countries like Australia, which claim to value Western democratic principles of liberty and rule by the people, the perception is that civil rights are codified into the legal framework just as they are in the U.S. However, there are some glaring differences and issues; specifically, Australian citizens (like many European citizens) have absolutely no means to compel their government or the elites that influence their government to limit themselves. It is these nations, in which the populations have been mostly disarmed and pacified, that any agenda for tyranny will first be established. But we will get to that in a moment...
Make no mistake, there is a very open and easily identifiable agenda on the part of globalists to establish a heavily centralized police state system in every country they are able.
This is not "conspiracy theory," this is conspiracy fact.
For many years now, there have been numerous analysts, economists and geopolitical experts in the alternative media that have predicted and warned the public about the globalist strategy of "order out of chaos." In other words, the ultra-wealthy power brokers that hold influence over most governments on Earth seek to "reshape" the existing social order through the creation of crisis and disaster. By engineering public desperation, they hope to lure us into accepting restrictions on our freedoms that we would have never considered otherwise.
The goal of a single global economy and government has been spoken of by elites time and time again, yet it is still to this day called "conspiracy theory" or "paranoid delusion." I could quote these elites and their organizations all day long, but I'll recite just a few choice statements to make my point.
As former Deputy Secretary of State under Clinton and Council on Foreign Relations member Strobe Talbot wrote in an article for Time Magazine in 1992 titled "America Abroad: The Birth Of The Global Nation:"
"In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn't such a great idea after all."
Another Council on Foreign Relations member, Cass Sunstein, a member of the Obama administration cabinet and an academic figure worshiped among globalists, is most famous for his book Why Nudge: The Politics Of Libertarian Paternalism stated:
"Despotism is a legitimate mode of government in dealing with barbarians, provided the end be their improvements, and the means justified by actually effecting that end."
The book argues for the philosophy that global elites and governments must be the arbiters of the course of human events and should manipulate public psychology towards "healthy and rational decisions," for their own good, through series of engineered events and more subtle conditioning through media.
Of course, there is no such thing as "libertarian paternalism" as the two ideals are mutually exclusive and counter to each other's goals. Not to mention, the people that benefit from the institution of despotism always seem to have a knack for labeling all the people opposed to them as "barbarians" so that their actions can be justified.
And how about one of my favorite revealing quotes from Trilateral Commission member Richard N. Gardner, former deputy assistant Secretary of State for International Organizations under Kennedy and Johnson? He wrote in the April 1974 issue of the Council on Foreign Relation's (CFR) journal Foreign Affairs (pg. 558) in an article titled "The Hard Road To World Order:"
"In short, the ‘house of world order' will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down. It will look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion,' to use William James' famous description of reality, but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault."
Members of globalist foundations and think-tanks like the CFR have inhabited nearly every U.S. government office and presidential cabinet for the past several decades. This includes the two dozen or so CFR members in Donald Trump's cabinet.
Draining the swamp? Not going to happen.
The easiest method for the globalist to get what they openly say they want is to either conjure a crisis or exploit an existing crisis in order to "erode sovereignty" of individuals and societies. The current pandemic fits this plan perfectly, and actions within nation allied to the U.S. suggest an acceleration is at hand.
There are sister foundations to the CFR in many other countries.
For example, in Australia they have the highly embedded and influential Strategic Policy Institute, which has been consistently advocating for complete centralization of government power in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Their stated plan is to concentrate power in the hands of a new "commission" or "department" made up of the "brightest minds." This commission would not be tasked with getting Australia back to normal but convincing the public to accept the "new normal" beyond the pandemic.
The ASPI enthusiastically heralds the idea in an article titled "Coronavirus Response A Chance To Reimagine Future For Australia:"
"The agenda of such a department now is not about getting Australia back to normal after the pandemic. It's about reimagining what Australia can be and how we can thrive and prosper in our future beyond the coronavirus and in light of drought, bushfires and climate change. Think about the kind of new economy we can have after the forced, rapid adoption of dispersed home working and schooling through digital means. We can be the leading digital economy the prime minister desired before the pandemic, not by 2030 but much earlier."
As U.S. globalist Rahm Emanuel would say:
"You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before."
The ASPI reveals the true agenda, which is the complete federalization and unilateral implementation of law without public approval. The plan to do this by exploiting the pandemic event to its full potential and then applying the rapid societal changes in government structure. This will then be carried on long after the coronavirus disappears, in the name of the economy, welfare programs and so-called "global warming." The pandemic response is just a means to an end, and the end game is total control.
I focus on Australia and the surrounding regions in particular because this seems to be the place where globalists are enforcing technocratic dominance first. Or at the very least, they are test running their strategy and using Australians as guinea pigs. When the ASPI says they plan to keep the pandemic changes in place well after the virus is gone, they aren't just talking about shifting into a digital economy.
Right now, Australia and New Zealand are slamming citizens with perhaps the most draconian measures yet in the Western world. These are policies that the elites want to introduce everywhere, but they are going full bore in Australia, and it just keeps getting worse.
In various areas of Australia "Level 4" response measures have been enforced for at least the next six weeks, including curfews, strict mask policies including people being forced to wear masks outside (contrary to everything science and virology has to say about the low possibility of transmission in sunlight and open air), residents are not allowed to travel more than three miles from their homes and only one person from a household is allowed to leave at any given time. Citizens violating these rules are subject to $10,000 fines or arrest. And yes, people are being arrested simply for not wearing a mask or being too far from home.
In New Zealand, the situation has become exceedingly grim, and I think it should be treated as a warning to Americans specifically as to our potential future is we allow the narrative of "public health security" to be turned into a vehicle for tyranny.
While Australia has been using quarantine facilities to force people considered high risk to isolate, NZ quarantine camps are now fully under the control of the military, and all citizens that test positive or are suspected to have COVID can be separated from their families and placed in the camps, which are hotels converted into prisons.
All of this because of a minor increase in cases in comparison to other nations.
I believe the reason Australia and New Zealand have been targeted with these restrictions first is that they have been almost fully disarmed and have no means to defend themselves from government overstep.
That said, I see signs that similar measures will be attempted in the U.S. as well. In states like New York, there are low key programs to set up COVID checkpoints stopping and checking vehicles coming into the state. This is where heavier restrictions start.
First, checkpoints will be established in the name of keeping infected people out of a state or city. Then, those same checkpoints will be used to keep people from leaving a state or city. Then, checkpoints will be set up at random to test people for fever or symptoms of illness. If allowed to continue, the natural progression of checkpoints is to terrify the population into not traveling anywhere for any reason.
Like in Australia and NZ, people will effectively be imprisoned in their homes with one hour a day in the yard for exercise. At this stage, bringing in laws or executive orders punishing people for leaving home will be easier; they will have already acclimated to being trapped at home anyway.
Checkpoints like these are one of my lines in the sand, and I have no intention of accepting them in my home state or county.
Furthermore, elites and globalists within the U.S. are calling for hard lockdowns for at least six weeks, just like the Level 4 lockdowns in Australia. Federal Reserve member Neel Kashkari recently asserted that Americans are saving more, thus they should be subjected to hard lockdowns "because they can afford it."
Virginia is planning mandatory COVID vaccinations, even though vaccines for SARS-like viruses have proven impossible to develop in the past, and rushed vaccines have a history of harming or killing people rather than protecting them. Set aside the issue that giving the government the power to force citizens to inject anything into their bodies is immoral.
What's next? COVID camps? Well, yes, unless Americans make a hard stand. Mainstream media outlets have been suggesting this strategy for months. The Washington Post applauded the use of forced isolation camps in other nations and asks why the U.S. has not yet used them beyond ports for foreign travelers? The reason is this: Many Americans will not go along with such measures and will use force in-kind against anyone trying to lock them up because of a virus that is a moderate threat at most to a small percentage of the population.
That said, don't assume that the establishment will not eventually try it here. They will. Be ready when they do so. Look to the actions in places like Australia and NZ and ask yourself if you're willing to go along with that? And if so, for how long? Because the globalists intend for these restrictions to become the "new normal." They intend for this nightmare to last forever.

Every generation is skilled at using the technology of its era. For example, people today are very good at driving cars, using smartphones, setting up home entertainment systems, and so forth. The problem is, if the end of the world as we know it ever happens, all those skills will be useless. The skills of our forefathers, on the other hand, will never be useless.
Below, we’ll take a look at 30 survival skills from our past that have mostly been forgotten today. If you want to be able to survive in a world where relying on technology isn’t an option, these skills are certainly worth learning.
1. Hand Washing Clothes - These days, almost everyone owns a washer and dryer, and those who don’t are able to rely on a visit to the laundromat. Washing clothes without these conveniences, though, is a forgotten skill...
