From time to time there is need for all of us to sit down and kinda look back to events that we lived trough and then to look in forward (in future) in order to try to see what is coming.
There is interesting things with important historical events -they mostly were not reckognized as „important historical events“ in that moment from average folks.
Or in other words for most of the folks it is not easy to reckognize events that are actually life changing, events that chanege or destroys societies, nations…
As a continuation of previous post (Full circle) we should all try to reckognize what is going around us, and what is going with us personally in the light of prepping and survival.
Knowledge is out there?
Preppersphere 10 years ago was mostly whole bunch of pages where people discussed ridiculous topics about imagined survival scenarios that never happened or will not happen-because they ridiculous.
It was something as i see it mostly for fun, places on line where people mostly came to join endless discussion about bug out bag or which caliber is better.
There were good pages and people with knowledge yes, but those were minority.
Preppersphere was big shiny place where you could read thousands of pages, see thousands of videos and advices of survival and buy bunch of physical items that will „save your life once when SHTF“.
Most of those were junk, and industry of money making with exception of few nuggets.
Few years ago things started to change, and continue to change to this day, thanks to pandemic, war, horrible economic situation and similar.
I would like to say things went to better, but it is not truth.
Many in preppersphere dissapered simply because they face reality and suddenly realized stuff that they write record or teach are non sense-reality show them that.
Minority of those who have idea and knew whats going on and knew how they can help have other problems-they jump in the „area“ where they talk, write or did thinks that system did not like, so they suddenly having problem with being labeled from system as a layers, people who spread misinformation or false news…they were into cancelling.
So, we are coming to the moment when if you are big enough, and have enough followers in survival world and if you want to talk free and discuss things at your wish you are risking to be cancelled, which in essence means you are not gonna be big enough, and at the end you are going to dissapere from online world.
I have seen close friends in preppersphere being stripped from income just becasue they said (wrote) things freely-as they want to wrote, that was their everyday job and they were just one day labeled as a troublemakers.
As a result, we might be in situation where if you want to be big, and have enough followers, and have good and strong „voice“ that is gonna be heard far in survival world you actually need to play by numbers, and some of those numbers are absolutely agains basics of survival.
There is statement that today is much easier to find correct information then let s say 25 years ago, simply because with few clicks you can find it.
On the other side, and it is paradox, as years passing by it is going to be harder and harder to find right information simply because there is too many information, and those information with „biggest headlines“ and flashing letters that you find after only 2 clicks are pages of people who are playing by numbers.
And remember, thoise who play by numbers can not always speak (write) freely.
Finding information is not problem, finding correct and true information is.
And let s face it, we are living in the world where everyone is „hooked“ on fast information, everyone wants to know immediatelly what is going on about something or some event that is interested in, of course those informations are there-just few clicks away, with big and flashy letters remember.
I am not talking about conspiracy theory here, i am talking about forming the „truth“ trough the carefully planned opression, not only in online world.
So…is knowledge still out there?
Yes, you just have to dig more for it, which is sad, because as time go on right information will be harder to find, and it should be opposite with all technical improvments.
Personaly i want to stay „small“ and invisible for big radar, i want to have ability to curse, swear, or simply to write things way i want to write.
For all of us, those who provide and those who seek survival/prepping information perspective is not really bright.
We are all more and more in danger of getting labeled as a „troublemakers“ simply because preppers and survivalists are (or should be) by nature people who look for truth and independence.
People who look for truth and independence,that sounds nice and cool, but stop for the moment and see where, in what direction whole world is going.
We are going in direction where we are gonna be told which truth is true, and independence (being independent) is not something that system knows to work with.
DEPENDENCE is what is desired from system, so you can play by their numbers.
So, again and again, stay sharp, stay silent, be smart.
