    I never took out a Facebook account... nor Twitter or whatever came before them.

    Something on a radar level was telling me not to do this ...that these sites are not the product advertised.

    Over the years I came to understand that these sites were a way of cataloging people....identifying them by certain traits or indexes...putting them into pre formed niche.

    In short...it is a way of herding people.


    For some it is a license to carry on as two legged wildlife...and I don't need that as it is to be found on any television set or other places on line.

    I am not into two legged wildlife. Not for me thanks. I can admire and respect the four legged variety of wildlife more than the two legged variety.

    Mostly social media is vapid and useless where people that don't want to have real friends that require real effort and work go to have friends that they don't really have to care about. Unfortunately whenever people are allowed to show their true faces without consequences they will show you just how inhuman and cruel they truly are. People hide behind the supposed anonymity of these places and then say and =do the things that would get them stomped if they did it face to face in the public somewhere. The good news is that it isn't all that anonymous and the stupid asshats post crud and then get caught for it like those little monsters that videoed them abusing and torturing a retarded boy.

    Personally none of it bothers me a bit because I just don't mess with it much. I don't Tweet, Twitter, Facebook or any of that stupid stuff.

    I once had someone say on another forum that they were going to walk post SHTF with 100 facebook "friends" from London to the south west of England, I just treated that remark with the contempt it deserved! ;)

    Leftist ideation is the social pathology wherein even society's best are unable to mature out of adolescence into adulthood.

    He should have posted their route. That way, looters would have a better fix on where they could get in some out-of-town predation. The meanest of the mean know where the food comes from. They sure aren't going to grow it themselves and they figure that the farmers aren't particularly well armed. Predators will be getting their weapons off the bodies of the police.

    there aren't that many police in the UK, last time I checked it was about 130,000 in the whole country and its decreased since then, and not many of them are armed and most of those are in the big big cities not the countryside where I am.

    I doubt if he would get out of London alive, you need to look at a map but its too built up for it to be safe getting out, I think it was just him trolling me because I live in the south west.
    anyone leaving London on foot wouldn't get half way before their in trouble.

    ‘export’ crime to more rural surrounding areas. This view is supported by the data in
    table 3, which shows that provincial forces bordering metropolitan areas on average

    very little if none at all rural crime in the area where I live, most of the rural crime reported is in areas accessable from the big cities, my area is for instance 5 hours drive, more like 7 or 8 hours in high summer, from the capital and even more from the Midlands, Birmingham, Coventry, Oldham etc. there is some crime here, mostly fuel thefts from outdoor oil tanks, the odd tractor theft that sort of thing, maybe some sheep rustling on occasion!!
    the south west of England is very remote from the rest of the country, and is often isolated in the big winter storms.

    Good for you guys. Other rural areas in G.Britain and a lot of rural places here in America are going to see horrific numbers of refugees.

    As a matter of fact, our Homeland Security will be moving useless city-folk out into the real America. To say that such dependent people are unwanted is the understatement of the century.

    My hope is that the collapse of the dollar will mean that police and soldiers do not get paid. That could possibly drop their motivation levels. Of course historically-speaking armies often get paid with the spoils of war and overt looting. Indeed, for many mercenary types, rape and pillage have been incentives to become soldiers and sailors.

    Trying to keep one's own food will be challenge post-SHTF.

    Lordy!! New York CITY alone has almost 35,000 cops and they are all armed. As I've said so often though police are little use as protection from crime. Unfortunately bad cops are a huge problem and threat that some of us fear more than the criminals. I can fight criminals and win. A cop can beat you half to death and if you even try to defend yourself it's a crime. Most cops are really good people but like Pit Bull dogs a bad one is a killer.

    police in the UK do not stop crime, they REACT to it, so only do something after the act, a lot of crime is never solved, especially the low level stuff, the thefts from shops and the house burglaries.
    only in the big cities do they patrol and then not much, out here in the countryside your lucky if you even see a policeman and then probably only flying through the area in their cars, I haven't seen a policeman to speak to for 20 years since I moved from a minor city.

    That is what police are supposed to do. Their mission is to find criminals and take them off the streets AFTER they have committed a crime. People that are there to PREVENT a crime from happening are called GUARDS. I GUARD my home.

    Over the last hundred years our government has become mostly involved in GUARDING the rights and lives of criminals. They do this by taking the tolls and rights away from the good people so that the criminals can do as they please without fear. This only makes sense when you realize that many if not most of our elected leaders are basically financed and controlled by criminals if they are not actively criminal themselves.

    Drug dealers finance politicians that protect their businesses by keeping it criminal to be an addict. Leave the sale and distribution of addictive drugs a crime but addiction is a medical condition and treating it should not be illegal. If you gave an addict his drug and then helped him get off of it they wouldn't have to rob people to support their habits. Heroin is dirt cheap to produce. As a non-criminal citizen I can't see a reason to support the continuation of allowing the pushers to benefit after they have addicted someone. GIVE it to them and offer them help. It is cheaper and more humane than locking them up in prisons and also suffering as victims of their crimes committed to support their addiction.

    I know a lot about addiction and have known a lot of addicts. First off you need to understand that addicts aren't taking their drugs to get high. Addiction happens as your body adapts to a drug and it takes more and more to get that high. Eventually you will reach the point where you don't get much from it in that way. A drinker, drug user or nicotine addict is driven to consume their drug of choice by the desire to avoid the withdrawal symptoms more than the desire to get high. What that means is that you are doing your drug to NOT feel bad more than to feel good like it made you feel at first.

    There are people that are just criminal by nature. These people are doing things even as children. They are the ones with a criminal history that runs dozens of pages long with a lot of arrests and convictions and many trips to jails and prisons. Basically if you were most;y interested in making a country a safe place to live the solution is to simply identify these people as young as possible and remove them PERMANENTLY from society.

    One of the obvious symptoms of a culture that has terminal cancer is when it becomes far more interested in the rights and protection of the lifestyles and freedoms of the criminals than in the lives of the good hard working non-criminal citizens. Someone that has three or more convictions of felony crimes is not going to change. They have something wrong with them that can't be fixed. First off they need to be sterilized and then if they can't be rehabilitated then either kill them or lock them up and throw away the key. They are like a rabid dog. You don't try and catch and treat a rabid dog.

    there are only 150,000 Police in the whole of the UK, they proved in the London "riots" that they couldn't keep control and that was a fairly small affair, post SHTF and a national breakdown they wouldn't have a hope in hell, I don't think they could keep control of London let alone the rest of the country.

    Then there's the matter of incompetence. Many police and sheriff's offices have excellent training. Most do not.

    Witness the shooting at the base of the Empire State Building. Two cops vs. psycho-Bob. The police brought Mr. Brain Case down; however, nine (I believe the number to be 9) civilians caught some lead. Holy crap!

    You are in NY, NY. You see some psych case off his med.s screaming at God and swinging around some big revolver. Head for cover. Because billy brain-dead might shoot you? Oh heck no, the cops are soon going to be filling the air with lead!

    The question here in the OP is....



    So from a historical perspective ..I will reply with a question....

    Do any of you know what happened in England in what became known as The Gin Craze????
    You might want to read this history and then look at the two legged wildlife you see running amok out here today.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gin_Craze



    Or in another version find out what the Hebrews were doing amongst themselves and their various warring/conflicting factions before the Romans surrounded them In Jerusalem about 70 AD.

    You can find this history in Flavius Josephus and his..complete works

    https://www.amazon.com/Complete-Wor...r=1-4&keywords=the+complete+works+of+josephus

    Herein the accounts the Hebrew factions were so busy fighting amongst themselves only to wake up one day and find the Romans had surrounded Jerusalem.
    IN essence...the Hebrews left themselves vulnerable as did England with the Gin Craze.


    All of this history took place before social media.


    Thanks,
    Watcherchris

    I honestly don't think that social media is making people stupid any more than guns are making people violent. It is simply reflective of the stupidity that people now seem to wallow in and hold up as the "right" way to be. It is like political correctness.

    The posts on twitter and twerp or whatever are shallow, inane and thoughtless in general. It allows "friendships" that have no depth and require very little in the way of effort from the people involved. We have become a people that expect instant gratification in all things and true friendship just isn't that sort of thing. It is like the difference between love and lust. That is another thing that people now seem to consider to be about the same thing.

    We are rapidly becoming almost mindless and thoughtless. Kids are not really learning their multiplication tables and such now. Why do they need to know THAT. That is what calculators do. What they know as math isn't even arithmetic unless they are going into a degree that has a serious math base. I have watched a bunch of liberal arts educated idiots debating the correct way to figure gas mileage. They were all uncertain whether to divide the miles into the gallons or the gallons into the miles!

    The skills of the mind are just not taught any more. Memory is now something that refers to computer storage only. When I went to school we memorized things every year. It wasn't that the stuff we memorized was so important as it was important to learn how to remember and store things. I remember learning the Pledge of Allegiance in kindergarten.

    What we call education now is nearly all regurgitative. You could have an IQ of a mouse but if you had a good memory you would be like a genius. There is always a lot of what you learn in school that is just raw memorization at first but that is SUPPOSED to then lead to problem solving where you take those memorized functions and apply them to real world problems. Word problems in math are where the memorized things are applied. I don't know if they even teach that now. I know that I see no sign of it in kids any more.

    Social media is what you end up with when you have people that are so shallow that there is little that they can talk about that can't be said in 10 words or less. The media isn't the cause...it is the RESULT of a people that have become almost mindless.
