Today I am solo and am simply going to discuss what is actually the primary reason I started The Bitcoin Breakout as a production of The Survival Podcast. Simply put in the last 4 years I have watched many bitcoiners on Twitter and elsewhere post pictures of new homesteads, solar arrays, gardens, grass fed beef, new homesteads, etc.
I’d say the big topics that bitcoiners come into after fully being onboarded are in no particular order…
- Growing your own food
- Carnivore/keto/paleo diets
- Permaculture/Regen Ag
- Alternative energy
- Libertarian values
- Skillset Development
The big issue though is all these things are part of prepping, I know as I have been teaching the subject for 15 years now. And this means that most Bitcoiners who come to prepping vs. preppers that come to bitcoin come in as “baby preppers”. This is not an insult, we were all “baby preppers” at one time.
The issue is the prepper community is diverse but most of it has matured across time. Yes there are still the group I call “armed compound idiots”. They also all seem to want to build a “community” and in this they mean a physical one, the entire “get a piece of land, grow our own food, all live together”, thing.
None of this is bad, and only some of the thinking is bluntly wrong (mostly the parmilitary mindset BS) but it is all a bit confusing to folks. To put it in perspective for the hard core Bitcoiner. Think of the person you’ve met (real world or online) that came to Bitcoin though shitcoins.
May be they YOLO’d into Doge or something due to Elon Musk, doesn’t really matter what. But they keep learning, seek truth, come to Bitcoin eventually. They have questions, ideas, concerns and beliefs the core bitcoin community have already long since dealt with.
Some ideas sound good, but have already been done and are working. Some are really bad ideas, already been tried and failed miserably. Some are just plain wrong but as a baby Bitcoiner they can’t see it. Some of the advice they get are from smart money people, who know jack shit about Bitcoin.
Same thing when Bitcoiners who never prepped, homesteaded, etc. come to this space. They do things that seems smart, say take advice from a Navy Seal or Green Beret on setting up a property. But those guys as bad ass as they are don’t now the first effing thing about 95% of what you need to know to do it right. Just one of many examples we will cover today.
Share this one with your prepper and BTC maxi friends folks.
