Historic doomsday scenes are always around. They’re a manifestation of humanity. The latest was the Mayan 2012 Calendar spectacle. It is this repetition of gullible behavior over the spectrum of human cultures and historic technologies that should prove to you the fragility of what I call Civilized Sanity.
It is more important to explain the phenomena because it’s repeated so much than addressing each specific lunacy. Understand one, understand why all of them occurred. Give a man a fish, he eats for a day: Teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime.
Our own Doomdigit quoted Rudolf Thiell in Ark of Suffering:
… the year 1186 forewarned of a world-wide tempest of huge proportions. In all countries underground shelters were built. The Emperor of Byzantium had the windows of the palace taken out and replaced by planks. The Archbishop of Canterbury ordered a three-day fast. When not a breeze stirred on the ominous day, the cynical monk who kept the chronicles of York made the sardonic notation: “We have experienced nothing but the tempest that His Eminence emitted from the pulpit.” For several generations thereafter, such prophecies were not in vogue. But by and by came new predictions of catastrophes: there were such for the years 1229, 1236, 1339, 1371, 1395, 1422, 1432, 1451, 1460, 1487.

Hysteria of this sort is based purely on superstition, which is the result of… no education.
Any pygmy grunting in a grass hut thinks every Bwana with a flashlight is The Sun God. Modern Murkans are the stupidest fuckers since The Dark Ages. Much of that inexplicable social anger you feel arises from the heretofore unmentionable superstition Murka thought itself freed of. In the past, the Church controlled masses with the above superstition-events. Today, Liberal Nazis and their FFOL Falange of educator-indoctrinators succeeded in stupefying Murkans for 40 years running. It is designed to control and direct the Moronic Masses with a fear of “order” collapsing. Keep BiGGov around, and Uncle Beast will feed and protect you – keep you safe from all boogeymen and bad guys. Not in my world.
Preppers are white: They exist purely because their other white “neighbors” don’t do jack-shit about any problem,. They don’t even call the police when their white trash neighbor’s hound-dog howls at 4am, then through entire nights. Thus, preppers believe they must be independent actors in a “mountain man” scenario. It is not the noble spirit of liberty that makes them act so, but rather, being abandoned by their neighbors…who may also even be preppers.
They exist to resist this feeling of hopelessness and isolation by re-imagining the once traditional and now vanished can-do “pioneer” spirit of the American Loner & Mr. Mountain Man. They all want to be that ruggedly hunky Jeremiah Johnson from the 70s movie. They are modern Cowboys – or rather, the image of what we’ve been taught were cowboys.
A Reality TV show (what else) I saw assessed preppers’ readiness. Watching these noble lardasses strain to defend their hovels verified to me what I have long known: I’m gonna be the Raider.
I might not raid them immediately, but if they start desiring life in the sunshine outside their bunkers I sure as Hell will show them who else to raid; maybe that ACORN warehouse staffed by Hipsters.
They will join my ever-growing renegade band as it advances toward The Big Plunder against the coloreds – or be our next meal. Anyone with PC Liberal values automatically decorates a tree. The same pygmy mentality means illiterate savages are highly susceptible to demagoguery; today’ it’s the FFOL/LNs in the pulpit – tomorrow…somebody else.
