Real Life Soldiering: Part 2

by Ryu

Home, Alone…

I don’t much like attempts to make things more complicated than they really are.  Every field is guilty of this and the military is no exception. There is nothing especially complicated in being a soldier.  Little kids in Western Africa have done it for decades.  Think of the games you played as a child: hide and go seek, flashlight tag, Marco Polo.  These games are  adaptions of very real military techniques.

This lesson was driven home to me yesterday;  I watched Home Alone.  The movie typified the last real good times for ….….white America – big house in the Chicago suburbs, big family, the dad has a great job, being able to easily afford a trip for 15 people to Paris on Christmas.  That movie is so white it glows in the dark and there is no multikult contamination.

Here is the movie:

There is no magic, just the basics.  Kevin did all of that in the movie.  Human psychology.  Establish and outer and inner perimeter.  Leave a way out.   The best spy in the world is not Jason Bourne, it’s grandma sitting in her house by the window, watching everything go by.  The greatest military in human history was defeated by a bunch of sheep herders with grade school educations.  They won it their way, by forcing our accountants to surrender, too much red ink.

WNs must learn to be unimpressed by fancy lingo and big words.  That is the mark of someone trying to run a con game – after all, if they can use such big words, they must be talking about something complicated!  More likely they are trying to get the mark to overpay for his purchase, or to awe the naive.

Any field can be as simple or as complicated as you’d like to make it.  All fields become challenging when you try to become the best in the world at them.  The demands we make on WNs in the future are going to increase; don’t be afraid to do something new and to trust your own mind.

  1. It’s like you’re reading my mind. When you said you wanted to be a Neo Viking I intended to interrupt the series I planned to explain the dangers of raiding a homestead. In these two posts you demonstrated that you already possess the knowledge.

    There is a difference between a survivalist and someone who knows how to grow, raise, and store food. The mindset of a survivalist is completely different than the mindset of most people. The survivalist heard the quiet voice above all the alluring technology traps: “Come to me, ye who are weary of degenerate culture and I will give you Dread Knowledge.” The survivalist is one who has his back to the wall and the only way to go is towards the firing squad. And one of his “friends” is an executioner. The survivalist understands human nature and that is one of his greatest weapons. A true survivalist should be able to: cut down trees and egos, build various structures and relationships, plant seeds and mines, sing the song of the shirt and the sword, write poems and see the writing on the wall. In short, he is the kind of well rounded person that Universities claim to train but rarely produce.

    • You are becoming part of the great unconscious, the collective. We experience these synchronicities in the WNsphere all the time. Perhaps the more mystical WNs like Brandon or Thordaddy could say more about it than I know. That’s why I urge certain people to get involved.

      You should still write the article, for your own profit. The best way to learn is to teach others. You will have a different POV than I have, I’m sure.

  2. 2 shows related to ‘real life soldiering’ I have seen recently:

    http://www.abc.net.au/iview/#/series/four%20corners

    (program on 8th of October: ‘The Battle for Syria’, excellent look at insurgency fighting).

    and this:

    which is about the Battle of Takur Ghar, highlighting what Ryu was saying in his first post about the ‘no man left behind’ bs.

    “…the coming conflict won’t necessarily be a ‘world war’, but a series of localised insurrections and civil wars.”

    LBF.
