Episode-280- Understanding the Mind of a Modern Survivalist

Today’s topic was impromptu because I actually left my show notes at the house.  I was going to do a show on Bug Out Vehicles but that show will now air some time next week.  That’s OK becuase today’s show came out very good and will help you understand why you think the way you do and to a degree why much of society things they way they do.

Tune in today to hear…

  • Everyone has a survival mind but most only use it as a last recourse
  • Where the survival mentality comes from and why you must make it part of your life to be authentic as a human
  • Why so many are living “plastic lives” and the misery it creates
  • Why many fear what you have to say when you talk about prepping
  • The damage that is done to our children when we change stories like the grasshopper and the ant
  • What is normal, who decides, do you think what most people call normal is really normal
  • Why do many hide “blue collar roots” and deny what they know to be true
  • What is normalcy bias and why is it so dangerous
  • What can we learn from the tin foil hat brigade
  • What can the current swine flu issues teach us about denial, obsession and balance
  • Why are survivalists generally happy and very optimistic people willing to take risks
  • What is a sheep vs. an ostrich, why are the ostriches even more dangerous

  1. I told the story of the grasshopper and the ant to my family and they thought I was crazy. I was canning food the other day and they asked me why I was doing that? I responded with, “Do you have a 60-90 day supply of food, fuel,…?”

    They laughed and said of course, town is(Helena, MT) is 15 miles away.

    All this with a military drill going on throughout Helena. 🙁

  2. Jack joked about a hypothetical Madison Avenue push to buy light coloured cars to offset global warming.

    While this might not surprise people – California was already not just considering it, but considering mandating it.

    What a bunch of ass hats. I can’t even make up stupidity in hypothetical situations any more. It seems no matter how moronic and ridiculous my concepts for them are California has already done it for real.

  4. Hows this grab you-we live here and “They” are going to do it!
    Pull you head out of the brown spot. We do listen often and enjoy you a lot.

    VIDEO> Vaccination would cover 8 locations in 5 counties

    NORTH IDAHO — Staff at the Panhandle Health District are preparing for the largest mass vaccination ever in North Idaho.

    Flu shot doses

    The agency expects to get over 100,000 vaccines for H1N1, also known as swine flu. Now, it’s looking for volunteers to help.

    Vaccines are being distributed nationwide, and should arrive here in North Idaho in early October. Until then, health officials are trying to prepare and monitor the swine flu situation.

    There is not date yet for the mass vaccination. It would take place at 8 locations in all 5 northern counties at the same time, most likely on a weekend.

    They are going to do WHAT, have mass vaccinations? Of course they are and many will line up and even push and shove to get to the front of the line.

    There is a big difference between this and FORCED vaccines. Like I said I am not getting one, tell you what if anyone shows up and tries to force me I will let you know right away, okay?

    Apparently what is going on on the “training” and LEO side is a lot of drills as to what they would do with a truly deadly pandemic. Such as a H5N1 mutation of Avian flu. Of course the foil hats are blending the two as they always do.

    Look I see the fnords!

    Take a breath if you don’t want a shot, no one is going to make you do it.

  6. good show – and as usual, I am in partial agreement – denial is what we do when it is too hard to admit what is going on – a pandemic planned for before signs of a pandemic??? – I am wearing my tin foil hat on this one – “they” have done a good job of spreading the ridicule against the so-called conspiracy folks – had to because they knew before 9/11 that many would understand what actually took place – so thank you to the tin foil hatters – because of this community we are finally waking up – that includes this swine flu “pandemic”.

  7. Jack,
    If you get a chance could you post a link to the vaccine patent you referenced in todays show? Thanks.

  8. One of your best shows ever, Jack. Please make it a point to leave your show notes home at least once a month. 🙂

    Best Regards,

    I was going to post asking for a link to the Storing vs Hoarding post that was mentioned (it was this podcast or the last can\’t remember as I have been listening in batches lately) but I really did laugh out loud at the \"I can see the Fnords!\" comment. But then I\’m a fan of R.A. Wilson, and of watching the tin foil hats for my twisted sense of entertainment.
