Treading Water I

by Edgar J. Steele

The most common question I get from readers is, “Okay, I'm convinced of how bad it is. So what do we do about things right now?”

In fact, there is a great deal to be done right now.

On the one hand, you need to ensure that you personally prepare for the coming hard times. That is a book in itself, but involves ensuring the safety of yourself and your loved ones. Some will resist. Some will think you nuts. But, there are things you can do quietly and covertly, even in that context.

Most importantly, you must plan now and be ready to implement that plan the moment the wheels come off.

If you live in a city, you need to plan how to get out in the event of a catastrophe. Immediately. Not the next day. Not that night. Immediately. Remember what South Central LA looked like just hours after the Rodney King verdict was handed down. That’s how quickly it will degenerate.

No freeways. They will be death traps. You need an escape route that takes you through neighborhoods you know will be safe for a time. Being among the first to leave will help to ensure that roads are not blocked.

You must have a plan in place for assembling your family for the trip, regardless of the time of day that it becomes necessary.

Assemble a “bug-out” kit and keep it in your trunk.

Store enough gasoline in cans in your garage to get you to wherever you already have planned will be your retreat. Recycle the contents every six months, because gasoline degenerates fairly rapidly. Keep your escape vehicle gassed up and well-serviced at all times.

Make a list of the things you can grab while the family is being assembled. Keep the list in the bug-out kit. Make a copy and keep it in your sock drawer, in case the car is busy picking up kids. Think apocalyptically today.

You won’t be capable of rational thought when the need arises, but you will be able to follow your list. Include any gold and silver you might be keeping stashed away (if you don’t have any, then shame on you). Include weapons – you will need them, rest assured.

Get permission in advance, even if you treat it as a big joke, to arrive on the doorstep of friends or family in the country, if that is what you must do. Otherwise, they will not be happy to see you. Arrive with enough of something or other that makes you a valuable and welcome addition to their enclave. Food. Gasoline. Bullets. Gold. That sort of thing.

If nothing ever happens, which I consider exceedingly unlikely (that is, it is inevitable, in my humble opinion), then you will have wasted nearly nothing. In fact, you will make money on the appreciation in gold and silver that has been going on and will continue for several years. If something happens, a few hours’ preparation today may spell the difference between life and death. Yours.

If you’ve a mind to, now would be an excellent time to move your family to an area likely to be among the safer in the country, regardless of what may happen. That will not include either the Southwest or the Deep South. Nor will it include any city of any serious size. Nor should it include areas within 100 miles of any coast (can you say, "nuke-induced Tsunami?). The more paranoid will want to stay at least 400 miles away from Yellowstone Park.

As you will learn in the next and last chapter, “New America,” I expect that whatever survives of White America will be carved from the Northwest and the heartland.

Given America’s recent predilection for invading small, defenseless countries, it is not at all unthinkable that we could be nuked in retaliation by somebody. Remember that nuclear fallout would be carried hundreds of miles by prevailing winds, which generally flow east by southeast. This consideration alone eliminates all of America except NE Washington state, N Idaho, NW Montana and bits of northern N Dakota and Minnesota. Get on the internet and track down some projected fallout maps from an all-out nuclear strike against the US and you will be amazed.

Why not move to another country altogether? Because, given America’s current ambitions for empire, there is no place that really is safe from America.

Only three areas could hold their own against America: Europe, China and Russia. Europe has become as multicultural as America and worse regarding civil liberties. The latter consideration makes Canada equally undesirable, aside from the weather. Australia is as bad as Canada. China simply isn’t going to allow you to immigrate and assimilate. That leaves Russia.

How ironic that the country we grew up hating and fearing, the one we saw as being the epitome of repression and poverty, now shows signs of being the last great hope for White freedom. Russia is throwing out the last of the communists and learning how to prosper with true private enterprise. America dares not attack or invade Russia, don’t forget.

A move into the far-western reaches of Russia, around Moscow and St. Petersburg, might well be a good investment in your future. I expect practically nobody reading these words to move to Russia, but you might make sure you and your family members have your passports up to date...just in case. The day may come when you will be able to secure passports only with great difficulty, if at all. Wait until you need them and I guarantee you won’t have enough time to get them. Yet another cheap investment in a possible future.

New America. An idea whose time has come.
