I often wonder what it would be like to be Amish. To gather with 250+ homies to dead lift a barn and carry it because you're just that badass.

Race-baiting bullshit is NOT the way, regardless of whether you think it’s true or not. The devil and the Democrats want to start a race war? Too bad. I’m gonna dance with commies, and men of any height, color, creed, or intelligence who believe in individual rights and the Constitution are welcome to join in.

Race division is how they keep slaves and prisoners controlled. No wonder Democrats love it, and free men look upon it with scorn.

2
Friendly_B 2 points ago +2 / -0

Yes, that's a better word for it. I think that the concept of "communalism" which lays at the heart of the IDEAL (not reality) of Communism can work in small groups. However, it ONLY can work with freedom and a desire to be a part of that system from all involved. So, small religious groups can pull it off to some degree, but not without a high degree of involvement from everyone who is participating, the freedom to leave the system if it becomes abusive, and everyone who is a laborer having input on decisions. None of that describes Communism. I'm aggressively anti-Communism, but I can see why people fall for the lie.

“We may come to remember this decade as the one when human beings finally realized we are up against something. We’re just not quite sure what it is.

More of us have come to understand that our digital technologies are not always bringing out our best natures. People woke up to the fact that our digital platforms are being coded by people who don’t have our best interests at heart.

This is the decade when, finally, the “tech backlash” began... necessary critiques, but they’re too focused on the good old days, when the business plans of a few bad actors and the designs of some manipulative technologies could be identified as the “cause” of our collective woes... blaming the developers, the CEOs, the shareholders, or even individual apps, programs and platforms for our predicament, when most of these players have either long since left the building, or are themselves oblivious to their impact on our collective wellbeing.

Just because the public is finally ready to hear about these tech industry shenanigans doesn’t mean they are still relevant. We can’t even blame capitalism, anymore. The quest for exponential returns may have fueled the development of extractive and addictive technologies, but the cultural phenomena they gave birth to now have a life of their own...

Over the past 10 years, our tech has grown from some devices and platforms we use to an entire environment in which we function... we live online 24/7, creating data as we move through our lives, accessible to everyone and everything. Our smartphones are not devices that sit in our pockets; they create new worlds with new rules about our availability, intimacies, appearance and privacy...

At this point, the digital environment is no more the result of a series of choices made by technology developers, as it is the underlying cause of those choices. What happened to us in the 2010s wasn’t just that we were being surveilled, but that all that data was being used to customize everything we saw and did online. We were being shaped into who the data said we were...

We have to understand the platforms on which we’re working and living, or we’re more likely to be used by technology than to be the users controlling it...

We’ve spent the last 10 years as participants in a feedback loop between surveillance technology, predictive algorithms, behavioral manipulation and human activity. And it has spun out of anyone’s control.

...The digital media environment is a space that is configuring itself in real time based on how the algorithms think we will react. They are sorting us into caricatured, machine-language oversimplifications of ourselves. This is why we saw so much extremism emerge over the past decade. We are increasingly encouraged to identify ourselves by our algorithmically determined ideological profiles alone, and to accept a platform’s arbitrary, profit-driven segmentation as a reflection of our deepest, tribal affiliations.

Since 2016, we have summoned demons to embody and represent these artificially generated worldview... Incapable of recreating a consensus reality together through digital media, we are trying to conjure a television-style hallucination. Television was a global medium, broadcasting universally shared realities to a world of spectators. The Olympics, moon landings and the felling of the Berlin Wall were all globally broadcast, collective spectacles. We all occupied the same dream space, which is why globalism characterized that age.

...The next decade will determine whether we human beings have what it takes to rise to the occasion of our own, imposed obsolescence. We must stop looking to our screens and their memes for a sense of connection to something greater than ourselves. We must stop building digital technologies that optimize us for atomization and impulsiveness, and create ones aimed at promoting sense-making and recall instead. We must seize the more truly digital, distributed opportunity to remember the values that we share, and reacquaint ourselves with the local worlds in which we actually live. For there, unlike the partitioned servers of cyberspace, we have a whole lot more in common with one another than we may suspect.”

“The industrial-technological system may survive or it may break down. If it survives, it MAY eventually achieve a low level of physical and psychological suffering, but only after passing through a long and very painful period of adjustment and only at the cost of permanently reducing human beings and many other living organisms to engineered products and mere cogs in the social machine. Furthermore, if the system survives, the consequences will be inevitable: There is no way of reforming or modifying the system so as to prevent it from depriving people of dignity and autonomy.”

...If the system breaks down the consequences will still be very painful. But the bigger the system grows the more disastrous the results of its breakdown will be, so if it is to break down it had best break down sooner rather than later.”

...It is not possible to make a LASTING compromise between technology and freedom, because technology is by far the more powerful social force and continually encroaches on freedom through REPEATED compromises”

...Control over human behavior will be introduced not by a calculated decision of the authorities but through a process of social evolution (RAPID evolution, however). The process will be impossible to resist, because each advance, considered by itself, will appear to be beneficial, or at least the evil involved in making the advance will appear to be beneficial, or at least the evil involved in making the advance will seem to be less than that which would result from not making it”

...The system does not and cannot exist to satisfy human needs. Instead, it is human behavior that has to be modified to fit the needs of the system. This has nothing to do with the political or social ideology that may pretend to guide the technological system. It is the fault of technology, because the system is guided not by ideology but by technical necessity”

...The system is currently engaged in a desperate struggle to overcome certain problems that threaten its survival, among which the problems of human behavior are the most important. If the system succeeds in acquiring sufficient control over human behavior quickly enough, it will probably survive. Otherwise it will break down.”

Why are you still quoting stuff at me? Especially when you are not summarizing them very much if at all. If I wanted to read the article, I would read the article. Also... The unabomber manifesto? Just stop please.

I believe in God. I believe technology and the study of Creation (Science) are meant to benefit humanity to improve our lives so we can be closer to God. I think the current systemic evils that we face as humans are works of the devil, meant to distract us from God.

Chopblock 1 point ago +1 / -0

There’s people on this earth besides you. Some of them are interested in ideas more developed and complicated than God = good, Bad = devil.

Ideas like HOW exactly a tool can make its own master into a slave, when as you say, the common perception is that technology is ‘neither good nor evil.’ Are those that disagree simply ignorant, sabot throwing Luddites? Or ‘crazed madmen’ that the TV told them to dismiss out of hand? Perhaps as a Christian you already know the rather complex history of theological discussion about machines and tools, which consumed Christian philosophers almost as much as discussions of good and evil in art, music, and war?

We are in a thread about this very topic..

If you can’t be bothered to read a heavily abridged text quotation (with links!) by someone who did all the work for you to find it, draw out the most concise form for communicating its message, and deliver it in an easily readable form...

Well, what was it your Lord & Savior once said about pearls?

“Technique refers to any complex of standardized means for attaining a predetermined result. Thus, it converts spontaneous and unreflective behavior into behavior that is deliberate and rationalized. The Technical Man is fascinated by results, by the immediate consequences of setting standardized devices into motion...

The dominance of technique imposes centralism upon the economy { despite comparatively inconsequential efforts to decentralize individual industrial firms), for once technique develops beyond a given degree, there is no effective alternative to planning. But this inevitable process is impersonal.

Only the naive can really believe that the world-wide movement toward centralism results from the machinations of evil statesmen.

The intellectual discipline of economics itself becomes technicized. Technical economic analysis is substituted for the older political economy included in which was a major concern with the moral structure of economic activity. Thus doctrine is converted into procedure. In this sphere as in others, the technicians form a closed fraternity with their own esoteric vocabulary. Moreover, they are concerned only with what is, as distinct from what ought to be...

Restraints on the rule of technique become increasingly tenuous. Public opinion provides no control because it too is largely oriented toward “performance” and technique is regarded as the prime instrument of performance, whether in the economy or in politics, in art or in sports.

Not understanding what the rule of technique is doing to him and to his world, modem man is beset by anxiety and a feeling of insecurity. He tries to adapt to changes he cannot comprehend. The conflict of propaganda takes the place of the debate of ideas. Technique smothers the ideas that put its rule in question and filters out for public discussion only those ideas that are in substantial accord with the values created by a technical civilization. Social criticism is negated because there is only slight access to the technical means required to reach large numbers of people.

In Ellul's conception, then, life is not happy in a civilization dominated by technique. Even the outward show of happiness is bought at the price of total acquiescence. The technological society requires men to be content with what they are required to like; for those who are not content, it provides distractions— escape into absorpion with technically dominated media of popular culture and communication. And the process is a natural one: every part of a technical civilization responds to the social needs generated by technique itself. Progress then consists in progressive de-humanization — a busy, pointless, and, in the end, suicidal submission to technique.

The essential point, according to Ellul, is that technique produces all this without plan; no one wills it or arranges that it be so. Our technical civilization does not result from a Machiavellian scheme. It is a response to the "laws of development" of technique.”

Big Amish community here and the whole electricity / phone thing seems to come down to personal choice. My buddy owns a business and his websites are designed and updated by Amish employees. His machines are maintained and run by Amish. Amish owned businesses have power. On the other hand many ride around with horses and have wired phone booths outside their homes.

The wife and I keep looking at how to sell our house and move somewhere that the profit we'd make on this sale (approx 200k) would help up get land a decent house..but still be near work and some semblance of civilization.

We're in the Springs now, but looking at Peyton (East) but slightly north to stay near trees. Anyhow, I'd love to garden as a hobby/part-time income and also to get away from needing anyone else to support me. Not sure why I'm sharing all this, but hello!

That is a nice area!

If you can get a place with a low water table, get a windmill and/or a hand pump for it if it doesn't have one.

That way you can get access to clean drinking water in case of power outages.

My first time hunting was an eye opener. It was just a hike to me with me an untrained eye, we got to eat the deer the same day and that was it. It wasn't until days after I realized there were so many tricky situations we got into that required preparation.

Funny story, we were hiking up a mountain in the preserve to find a spot where deer would camp out and when we got up a very steep hill one of the pro hunters had a kid who started running back as fast as he could and told us there were deer up there. I got excited thinking we were gonna start shooting but for some odd reason we backed off and detoured several miles around. Later that day we did get a deer. I didn't realize it until later but we had walked into a camp of 30 or more deer and we about to walk straight into them, the hunter's son wasn't excited we had found deer, he was telling us to get the hell out of there. It's a bit more dangerous than you'd imagine, with competition from coyotes and wild predators and such so hunting in groups is mandatory if you want to have fun. We saw a bow hunter in a tree and I thought it was the most hardcore thing I ever saw, he didn't move for hours.

Also, hauling a deer carcass over 3 miles is not fun, aim is important.

If you're talking raising a cow for beef, they're very very big. That's the kind of thing where you'd want to team up with a few other families, share the calf/feed cost and then split the meat.

For a smaller farm, pigs are very doable. They say you can eat everything but the squeal, and pigs will eat lots of stuff. Between pigs and chickens, most of your kitchen scraps will be taken care of. They can be very destructive though, and they need to be comfortable, so you have to have the proper enclosure ready.

There are guys who will take you out, hunting guides have been around forever. Your local gun shops will know who the good ones are, and there are commercial companies everywhere. My uncle had a side gig for years and years doing it, he was a weekend hunter, but he'd been doing it his whole life - all of his clients were word of mouth.

This ^. Humans spent 2,000 years accumulating expertise in this field. It’s yet another way our oil/machine-based monoculture threatens to usher in a new dark ages by replacing expertise with scaled tech.

Find a friend or two at a garden store / farm supply and start a ‘victory garden’ and a small-scale 6-10 hen operation, (maybe a beehive too if you’re feeling adventurous), and spend a few seasons learning lessons the ‘fun way’ before you pick up and go start a new life raising grizzly cubs and Alaskan wolves on your newly-cleared moose-milk farm!

Community gardens and 4-H might be an option for younger ‘pedes and/or apartment dwellers to get their feet wet before building the self-sufficient solar vertical greenhouse using Japanese joinery and hand tools!

Goats require heavier lifting, more space, and a trailer; You can handle chickens with a backyard enclosure and a station wagon. And nobody ever broke their hip getting knocked on their ass by chickens!

He’s right. The people who died in the Holodomor knew more about farming than the average ‘pede, and were far less reliant on technological supply systems; they died of starvation because they didn’t have the means to fight, not because they lacked homesteading skills.

Thinking that you can run and wait it out somewhere is a form of the denial and bargaining stages of grief.

In any modern human civilized society, political power ultimately emanates from the urban centers, in a reversion of how it was through most of history (when the rural periphery terrorized the urban center). In post-Colonial Africa and in most Communist countries, this resulted in landowners (the vast majority of which are lower to middle middle class) being dispossessed or even massacred. The USSR and Zimbabwe being great examples.

I expect it'll eventually be the same here if we all decide to retreat to the hills and grow radishes.

Those radishes look like Daikon, or "Tillage Radishes" if I am not mistaken...

You could plant these suckers and make a decent amount of your own food from them.

Florida pede so our growing seasons are a little screwy but just about everything grows. I've still got at least 100 tomatoes on the vines from winter, lots of fruit trees, a large stand of banana trees, figs, pineapple, dragon fruit.

Got summer crops in the ground and they're growing nicely, corn, potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, squash, beans. Got some ghost peppers going for the novelty. Lots of herbs too, those are easy.

We will be expanding this summer in a section of our yard so we will have more winter crops. Doing raised beds for that.

Beyond planting food, I'd suggest composting as well. It's quite easy and a good way to turn your waste into excellent soil. When I started out doing this it seemed a little overwhelming, but it's easy if you start slowly with a few things and just work your way up. Gardening on Sunday is way better than sitting on the couch and watching sports or whatever.

Yes, generally. But that depends on your climate.

In the Deep South, squash can be very challenging to grow in ares that get multiple generations of Squash Vine Borers per year. C. moschata varieties do resist the borers fairly well, but C. maxima and C. pepo squash plants (which are most of the pumpkins and squash that most people are familiar with) often don't live long enough to produce. (I am assuming that since we are talking about a survival situation, pesticide availability will be limited.)

Sweet potatoes are an excellent alternative to squash. I don't know if they can be grown instead of squash in a "three sisters" arrangement, but they do provide the beta carotenes like squash do. They store well if properly cured and thrive in the summer heat. You get a lot of calories per acre, too.

Down here, very early spring and maybe fall (more iffy; an early frost can wreck your crop) are the times to grow conventional/Irish potatoes. But yes, they can be grown.

Beans (green, shell, or dried) work in spring if planted ASAP after last frost, but most types will struggle in the hottest and rainiest part of summer. Green beans can be sown again in late summer for a fall crop, but there's often not enough time to get dried beans in fall.

Lima beans, cowpeas/southern peas and long beans (yard long beans) thrive in the worst of summer, though. Keeping them going through fall might be safer than trying a fall crop of conventional beans.

Amaranth is another grain to consider for a survival crop in the Deep South. It grows like a weed, has a good protein content, is high in several nutrients, and the leaves are edible, too.

Consider setting up a "food forest" while you're getting your homestead established. Most of the grocery store fruits like apples, cherries, and peaches need a lot of spraying and pruning to get a good crop. They are good to have, too, but a "food forest" consists of wild and semi-wild edible trees and plants that need little care after they are established. They will shelter wildlife and beneficial insects and make you some food.

Be sure to base your food forest on natives and wild or semi-wild fruiting plants that don't need much care where you live. Depending on your climate, you might include things like blackberries, mulberries, blueberries, maypops, crabapples, loquats, quince, wild plums, persmmons, figs, sand pears, elderberries, gooseberries, currants, various nut trees, etc.

Just make sure your goats can't get to your food forest!

patriotic-noodle 1 point ago +1 / -0

I don’t know a ton about Ohio but honestly if you move to the country your perspective might change vastly. The problem with a lot of these so called “free states” is that tons of people are moving to them driving up the land values and sadly your quaint little mini farm could end up having a 200 house subdivision next to it 2 years in. Unless your willing to move way far from the hub city (which is always worth doing anyway).

Youre right...OH isn't too terrible in comparison to some other states. I am just outside of Cincy and looking to move further out. A lot of the rural areas dgaf about our dictator. We go to the rodeo once or twice a month and even though everything is at limited capacity and mandatory mask everywhere, the rodeo will be standing room only with 1000 ppl and 5 masks total.

My main problem is just that it's hard to find a Catholic school that is relaxing their covid bs rules. I refuse to send my kids to govt indoctrination camps (public school). They are in a classical Catholic school and there are only 2 of those in Cincy and 2 in Cleveland so we can't get too far away from the cities.

I'm using tilapia because I'm in the southeast and the climate is too warm. If I lived up North near the Canadian border I'd be using salmon. Hydroponics and aquaponics are very different in that you can dump whatever nutrients/chemicals in a deep water culture basin as you'd like but with aquaponics it's much more about taking care of the fish and getting the ecosystem to be self sustaining. Lots of math involved!
