Skip to comments.Beware Of Highly-Trained Armed Parasites In A SHTF Situation
Posted on 02/10/2012 12:57:37 PM PST by Kartographer
This morning, I want to talk about these armed parasites. Some time ago I picked up the book Urban Survival Guide by David Morris. On page 86 of the text, which is really a comprehensive twelve-week urban survival course, Morris wrote:
many peoples survival plan consists of buying just enough ammo to take whatever food they need by force. Just two weeks before writing this, I stood in a circle with eight active duty military talking about how quickly things were crumbling. When the conversation moved to preparations, I found myself listening to them mock families who stockpile food and detail their plans on how to liberate it if they ever need to.
Some of the comments were, If theyre dumb enough to buy food instead of guns, they dont deserve to live. and When it comes down to it, my family is more important than their family and Ill take what I need. and I dont have room to store a year of food, but I do have room for another case of .223.

Quark:"Let me tell you something about Hew-mons, Nephew. They're a wonderful, friendly people, as long as their bellies are full and their holosuites are working."
"But take away their creature comforts, deprive them of food, sleep, sonic showers, put their lives in jeopardy over an extended period of time and those same friendly, intelligent, wonderful people... will become as nasty and as violent as the most bloodthirsty Klingon. You don't believe me? Look at those faces. Look in their eyes."

This is parasite thinking ... not much beyond their next meal.
Do they honestly believe that other families won’t stalk, hunt and kill parasites, for their own survival? You don’t ignore the rabid dog that bites your neighbor, you hunt the dog down and take it out; so it doesn’t bite your family next.
Will the “thug prepper’s” body armor stop 30-06 AP?
Didn’t think so.
If it is news to you that in a SHTF situation the greatest threat to you and your family are going to be armed bands of people - what did you think it WAS going to be?
Folks like that will be in for a shock when they learn most who stockpile food also believe in taking the necessary steps to protect their life, property, and liberty.
Many preppers I've read of, and conversed with, are more than prepared to keep their rations.
Dilbert covered this a few months ago. Dilbert was going over his supply list with Alice, who said, “I don’t see any defensive weaponry here. I’ll come over and take what I want, and please buy more of these granola bars, I like them” or something like that.
This also came up in Lucifer’s hammer, a survival novel involving a comet strike rather than a Zombie Apocalypse. There were people whose survival plan was to simply take stuff from the people who were not able to defend themselves.
And remember the fallout shelter craze of the 50’s, one “problem” was seen that your neighbors, hungry and possibly contaminated with Grade A fallout, would want to get into your shelter and eat your Spam, so you better have a shotgun to keep them out.
I play “Modern Warfare” with my sons and right before it starts I always look over at em’ and say “It moves, shoot it” ...
Don’t know what that has to do with this thread, but somehow I felt the need to post it
I have made some very basic preparations tho not nearly what would be really needed in a super disaster scenario.
One thing which never crossed my mind is taking someone Else’s food.
I was going to ask for suggestions.
I think some electronic motion sensors, motion sensitive lighting and a couple of good dogs would go a long way towards making parasites like this move on to an easier target.
The families you talk about will be facing military trained people, not street thugs, so a band of 16 ex-military folks would be a handful for untrained people, is, I think, the point OP was making.
Interesting that they focus on ex-military. I know a guy in CT who is NOT ex-military and his entire prep plan is to shoot people.
” I found myself listening to them mock families who stockpile food and detail their plans on how to liberate it if they ever need to. “
Sadly, I’ve seen similar sentiments expressed by posters on some of these “Prepper” threads, right here on FR....
The problem that the parasites have is that they have to be correct every time they go up to someone and try to force the issue of food or other supplies.
I would suggest that they would be wrong early on and would be taken off the plaing field.
Hmmmm, some good points to ponder
Between us we can arm the whole block.
Most outsiders will be pretty hungry after a week. Good luck getting into our neighborhood.
It would take a little more organization than the rabble in the projects could muster.
In a SHTF situation - the Government is Dangerous Armed Band of Humans NUMERO UNO!!!!
