Mosby over at Mountain Guerrila has a lengthy post up that I highly recommend you go read.
The truth can be painful at times and I can certainly see myself in what he talks about, as will some of the rest you.
A couple of snippets, you really should go read the whole thing to put it into his true perspective.
For most of us, of a, shall I say, “certain age,” normal is defined as the America we recognize from our youth and young adulthood. That America is gone, as most of us recognize. The denial in question isn’t that. The denial is expecting that “normal” as we define it is going to return.
Normalcy bias, in this instance, is the belief that TEOTWAWKI will be heralded by some obvious, major catalyst, like an EMP or the declaration of martial law by the government. Ignoring the absolute, absurd impossibility of effective martial law in the United States, as a whole, think about the actual definition of TEOTWAWKI. It’s HERE, NOW, and denying it is normalcy bias.
TEOTWAWKI is here folks and I for one have had a persistent and overbearing sense that "bad things are coming" hammering inside my head for several months now that is getting louder and louder.
I think it's time to sit down and have a long conversation with myself about just how I am going to respond to the crisis staring us in the face. We can't afford to be walking around with blinders on anymore.
The United States of America is dead as we knew it and now it is time to start going about life with the full realization that it's not coming back and that we are in fact, minorities now in our own country.
Living in the FUSA from here on out is going to get more tactical every day.
No more can one just go about their business without being aware that there exists the possibility that one may just run into a situation that requires an instant life or death decision. Just getting pulled over by a nervous cop for a license plate light being out can get you dead these days.
Personally, I know in my heart that I am not even close to being where I should be even after years of knowing it was coming.
The learning curve is going to be steep and the writing is on the wall now.
You can quit wondering if it is going to be quick or a long slow slide, TEOTWAWKI is here folks, best get squared away for it ASAP.
H/T to Mike for the link, I had Mosby on the blogroll but a few months ago had a major malfunction on the blog and he somehow got removed. That has been rectified.
