Do you LOVE America?


    This article was originally published by Mac Slavo at SHTFPlan on May 25th, 2020.

    *EDITOR’S NOTE: Other than enhancing our critical thinking, the best thing we can do right now is to become as self-reliant as possible. 

    In the aftermath of the government’s response to the coronavirus outbreak, which has impoverished millions and destroyed the supply chains all around the world, Americans are at least taking some responsibility.  Many are now taking to self-reliance, as they’ve realized the government is not there to help them.

    Many people initially obeyed the commands to destroy their lives, shut their businesses, and become good slaves. But a lot of us quickly got fed up with the tyranny as the orders killed jobs, smothered social interactions, and put the entire population of the planet in mental chains. If anything, the plandemic restrictions fed oxygen to the embers of the individualist, anti-authoritarian tradition. Likewise, the lockdowns have fueled old habits of self-reliance, prompting Americans to relearn skills and revive almost-forgotten habits in ways that, for better or worse, may shape the future.

    Cooking at home was the first skill to gain new life in a nation that had become increasingly accustomed to take-out, fast food, and sit-down restaurant meals.

    “Until recently, learning how to cook, or learning how to cook better, as an adult was considered an aspirational skill akin to learning how to ski—could be nice, might be fun, but would be daunting and could come with potentially expensive start-up costs,” the Washington Post noted in March. –Reason

    When you rely only on yourself, you cannot be manipulated or controlled.  This is perhaps the biggest blow to the political and ruling classes of the world that we’ve seen yet.  As David Icke said, “dependency is the greatest form of control.”

    Stand Up For Liberty: Dependency Is The Greatest Form of Control

    Self-ownership, personal responsibility, and self-reliance have all been on the rise since the elitists insisted on trying to bury the public in fear and horrific tyrannical restrictions on literally everything.  People have risen up though, and perhaps this is the point in history when people got off their knees.

    Americans now have a renewed interest in gardening. “We sold more seeds in March than at any other time in our 144-year history,” announced George Ball, chairman of The Burpee Company. And yes, those are “mostly vegetable seeds and plants such as tomatoes, peppers, and beans,” according to House Beautiful.

    Canning supplies and online lessons in food preservation also took off, as people realized they have to use or store anything they grow. Food waste is becoming a thing of the past. Whether Americans want to continue doing things for themselves after the lockdowns ease and life returns to some form of normal depends on how much they enjoy the experience. Many will pick a life of convenience if that’s back on the menu. But the harsh reality of what the government is may dictate an extension of the DIY experiment for some time to come.

      1. Trying to be self reliant nowadays will get you targeted. Be subtle. This is no longer America we live in.

        • All should learn this

      2. Real self reliance requires simplicity.

        We live in a culture of complexity and any complexity in our lives much above that of the homeless and a few quirky hermits and such requires a great deal of reliance on the world around you and all the complex systems it contains.

        You might become a little less reliant, but actual self reliance is virtually impossible today.

        • Simplicity went the way of the dinosaurs after the 1980’s.
          Americans became dependent on electronic devices and the rest is history.

      3. DO what is necessary to remain free from the tyranny. It seems obvious when the people need to overthrow the tyrannical Sloppy Joe regime they say it is Illegal when it is in the US Constitution that the people have such right to throw the chains of tyranny off them. Nice how they turned that around too. Time to become awake NOT woke!

        • Actually, it was in the Declaration of Independence, which is a part of the Organic Laws of the United States of America. To wit: But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

      4. I’ve done what I can. But eventually they will come for EVERYONE! The mountains will only buy you time. Prepare to take as many a-holes with you as you can when it’s your turn….

        • Exactly.

        • while one can hide away from worst of everything, or be ready for natural disasters, i really find irritating the people who think it’s all about living off the land in the woods. even Rambo has to come back onto base. one can be self sufficient for a lot and ride out much disaster, but if they want to search you out, all they have to do is scan for heat signatures while you or family are out weeding the zucchin or tilling the potatoes.

      5. They will shut off everything to the unvaxxed. You need to get everything NOW — From food storage to gas storage and generators for power, TP and supplies, soaps, pet foods, antibiotics, vitamin supplements, water, etc.

        The new infrastructure bill looks like it will pass in the Senate that restricts driving cars and AI that can prevent you from driving with meters installed so have bicycles or other non-licensed and non-fueled transportation before they take your buying privileges away.

        Have groups of like minded people, to barter and trade, with things you can grow or make or use gold and silver.

        Those with dependent children will be separated and you will lose them to the Feds to be vaxxed while you go to Nazi prison camps. What a terrible time to have young children! The Beast is here, so stand up and refuse the jab or you will sell your soul to him

        And Pray! It is happening faster than you think.

        • Feel for the men that are married with kids.
          So many married men have the exact same plan of fleeing to the mountains when SHTF.
          Good luck convincing the wife and kids to give up their lifestyle of smartphones, tablets, Internet, video games, sports,fashion, active social life, fast food,microwave dinners,electricity, indoor plumbing, running water, air conditioning/heat,soft bed, et al; for a life of boredom and hard physical labor in the mountains.
          Everything will be roses and wine until the “new” wears off and the wife and kids want to return home to their comfortable lifestyle they enjoyed.
          Good luck with that.
          It’s a great time to be single and no kids.

          • If you have no children what are you even worried about?? Single guys like you should be forming the resistance

            • if you have kids and wife, how are you going to do it all by your lonesome? for security alone, you cannot be awake 24/7. and being self sufficient as described in the article takes multiple skillsets & talents, which typically requires multiple people. and come planting and harvesting time alike: you NEED multiple people as things get hella busy!

      6. On the Dan Bongino Show yesterday, Trump finally speaks up on vaccines, he states, “I think I have to be a big vaccine fan because I’m the one who got it done so quickly, we got it less nine months, it was supposed to take five years. They would have never even gotten it done so I am a big fan. At the same time, I’m a fan of our freedoms and people have to make that choice for themselves and I would recommend they get it and get it done and they’re being protected and the vaccines turned out to be a tremendous thing….” While Trumps goes on to mention he is a believer of freedom of choice, he fails to admits he was conned by Fauci and the CDC. He fails to mention all the death and injuries of the vaccine or fails to mention the forced vaccines on our healthcare workers, military service members or Federal employees. He got us into this mess and still promotes it.

        I support turning over Trumps stolen election, but I do not plan on voting for him in the primaries if he continues to deny the dangers of vaccines. Personally I hope Mike Flynn, Marjorie Green, DeSantis, Ron Johnson, Matt Gaetz or Senate Candidate Dr. Shiva Ayyaduai runs in 2024.

      7. We are imprisoned by a steely web of Chinese manufactured necessities and Amazons and fragile internet connections and digital payments.
        Add to this the bonds of mortgage, loans and credit card debt and the vast majority of Americans are doomed – not to mention the collapsing / collapsed supply chain.
        Becoming self sufficient will require more than three or four tomato plants and a carton of canning jars. It will require a return to a life style as alien to Americans today as the 2020’s would be to someone from the 1850s.
        Buckle your government madated seat belts.

      8. SILVER/GOLD IS ON SALE! At this time gold is down 61 bux and silver is down 1.31. JMbullion has good deals in stock!

      9. To those who plan on fleeing to the mountains and hiding: How are you planning to deal with the forest fires and such that you will very likely have to deal with at some point?

        • People will deal with what ever comes their way. No matter what. People know what’s going on out there.

      10. I really enjoyed this article. It’s shows that people are fed up and want to have power over their own lives. I printed it off.
