The Revolution and The Remnant

Lots and lots of speculation, tons of books on preparation for “the end of the world as we know it,” lurid novels with various depictions of what life might be during and after a “crash” of one sort or another abound in real space publications, forums and blogs. Most of the “revolution” talk centers on some sort of mass uprising, and one of the saddest things over the last few years is seeing so many people waiting for another messiah, a “leader,” something or someone central to emulate, rather than just BEING a self owning, self responsible person in the here and now, regardless of what anyone else is doing or thinks. Waiting for the “revolution” instead of withdrawing their consent now, ordering their lives – now – to minimize the intrusion of the tyranny, as well as minimizing the theft of their resources by government at all levels.

But I can assure you there will be no consensus on it, no mass movements of any kind, really. Whatever happens will be done by individuals, and their voluntary associations and communities.

The total tyranny may well strike NYC or Chicago, but isn’t going to influence the little towns in the back woods much. Southern California may finally drop off into the Pacific, but the good folks in northern Nevada and NE Wyoming won’t be swimming with them. There will be parts of most states involved, probably, and vast areas where the chaos in the big cities will simply be bad news. There will never be a “one size fits all” situation or answer.

Communities will probably find themselves on their own, cut off from much they depend on to be brought in from other places. They’ll be unable to ship out their own products, and probably will have to deal with electric outages and so forth. But that won’t last forever. With the least incentive, and some time, human beings will find a way to live, trade and learn. We’ve been doing that for all of recorded history, regardless of the insanity of a few – and the roadblocks they throw up.

Those who have provided alternatives for themselves and their communities, who have a store of food, etc… and the means to defend them… those people will have a good chance to be the remnant so many talk about.

Neither the feds, nor any other “law enforcement” outfit, even begins to have the manpower necessary to do much about it, once the SHTF. The deer hunters in the US ALONE outnumber the regular armies of most countries in the world. All they really have to do is decide that they’d rather be free men and women – and mean it.

We have to get over this fear of “THEM.” We outnumber THEM, seriously, every single day and hour. And they know it.

I believe in humanity. I believe in myself. I believe in YOU as well, and our ultimate ability to survive and even thrive.

About MamaLiberty

As a lifelong individualist and voluntarist, my philosophy can best be summarized here: No human being has the right -- under any circumstances -- to initiate force against another human being, nor to threaten or delegate its initiation. Self defense, and the defense of others, is a basic right of all living creatures. After a long career as a registered nurse in So. Calif, I retired in 2005 to NE Wyoming, living alone in my own log home, with good friends and neighbors all around. Biological family includes two grown sons and five grandchildren, unfortunately still in California. In addition to writing and editing, I garden, sew, cook and bake my own bread from home ground wheat and other grains. Hobbies include identification and cultivation of wild food and herbs. I am also a certified instructor for firearms and self defense. I carry a gun at all times.

    Hello – Agreed with all you (have) said – but don’t write SoCal off so quickly…we are a disparate lot and while seeming to have a large population of govmit lovers, there are those of us that consider ourselves part of the remnant…and have taken steps to assure, as much as possible, this distinction…I’m not your only fan in CA, yes? Oh…and really sorry about Pelosi and friends…not much we can do about that at present.

      I still have a lot of good friends in So. Calif. I joke with them all the time about taking their chances for winding up in the ocean. The big problem with staying there is about the same as choosing to swim in a swamp full of alligators. Your chances of ongoing success gets smaller each time more eggs hatch. Why not get out of the swamp?

      The thing to remember is that Pelosi and Fienstien don’t have a lock on destructive politics, by any means. Proof that there is NO political solution can be found in any state capital, city hall or wide spot in the road where bureaucrats can gather. And that includes Wyoming. The statists run the state, for the state… not at all surprising.

      Nothing is going to change for the better until people take back personal control of their lives and eliminate the theft and coercion they’ve allowed to control them for so long.
