I agree. I went with the Everyone-for-themselves Scenario
let me guess former missile site still targeted by Russian ICBM’s?
When I arrived in the Canal Zone back in 1969, I was assigned to the 252nd. Signal Co. located on Flamenco Island. During the "land crab migration", I was in the process of putting on my boots only to find one of those things had crawled into it.......creeped me out!
Both of us, brother, both of us!
Matt, you just keep getting better and better. Excellent read.
Another animal/refugee analogy is the old indian’s use of fish weirs on shallow rivers. Rock diversions are built out from both banks at angles that almost converge leaving an opening big enough to put a fish trap. The fish swims along downstream unknowingly into the stew pot.
Same thing with Arctic Caribou funnels built from rocks by ancient natives to direct the critters into a narrow kill zone.
AZ has some good places too. Check my profile for some more info.
Good post. Thanks
Hmmm, interesting point about the possible armed forces and/or militia of some sort burning down the ghettoes. That has happened once before. Some of the younger ones might not remember or have been born after it, but I remember back in 1985, Mayor Goode of Philadelphia, surrounded the MOVE complex and ended up resorting to a helicopter dropping a firebomb on them resulting in a huge fire. I looked it up, it happened May 13th, 1985, which matches my memory, I was a senior in high school at the time and was about to graduate.
The Safeguard Site would make a great place for amateur radio operators with all the antennas and that pyramid. If I hit the powerball, I’ll start a colony for ham radio operators as well as and Freepers that want to join. B-) Anybody up for the Ham Radio Militia? B-D
Bravo Zulu. You outdid yourself on this one, though I have some doubt about how really widespread the alleged suicidal behaviour of lemmings is.
The lemmings just show that starving creatures will even dive in for a hopeless swim rather than stay on a starved-out plot of ground.
And so will humans.
That was another great article. Thanks for what you do.
When a city already has arson fires burning, set Rodney-King-style, that is the best time for outside bad actors to set fires. In Smyrna in 1922, the Turks waited for the perfect off-shore breeze to light up the city, driving the inhabitants to the seawall to their deaths or rescue.
This is a good day to read some modern parables, and reflect.
