A NEW WORLD ORDER (MY WAY) by anonymous
It's me again! Recently I was asked what I would do to establish order in a post SHTF scenario. I didn't skip a beat because I have thought about this extensively over the last 15 years or so. So, here goes.
It must start with the question "how did we get to this point?" History is not my thing, but human nature is. Go back to the book "How to Speak, How to listen" foundational premise and couple that with the breakdown of the family unit. It used to be that only the man in the house would vote. Many would say that this is sexist. I say, it makes sense. A house (like a town, county, state or federal government) must have a designated leader. Typically, that would be the breadwinner in the family. One house, one vote. That makes sense when you think about it. If a household cannot agree on core issues, how can one expect a nation of strangers to agree?
I am not suggesting that this be a democracy. I am suggesting that people in this nation no longer know what it is to negotiate and compromise. People in this country no longer know what it is to build from scratch to carve out an existence from the land with your own hands, nor how long and how hard it takes to do so. Because the majority of people in this country no longer know this, it is taken for granted. What is taken for granted is not valued. When things come too easily, people forget what boundaries are all about. A good exercise to learn about boundaries is a theater game I learned back in college. One person starts by being inside a circle miming an activity. The others join "him" inside when, after observing, they figure out how they can fit in and complement the player and their activity. The game ends when everyone has joined into a working model of a family, a town, a society (if you will). This exercise helps to make a person aware of how each individual must figure out how they can contribute to the group so that it is a functioning whole. In other words, people learn how to build and cooperate in a joint venture; but, they must do this AND retain their identity, their separateness, to keep their uniqueness, because without that, they have nothing of value to offer the group/society.
Given this background, I believe that to start over in a post SHTF scenario, we understand the above. We come together as a cohesive family unit and build into a neighborhood, a town, a group of towns, a county, etc. Only with a country of participants that know and understand why we build, why we compromise, can we again become a strong nation.
OF COURSE, WE FIRST START BY FOLLOWING THE CONSTITUTION (without legalese), ABOLISH ALL AMENDMENTS THAT WERE NOT PROPERLY ADOPTED, and WE REAFFIRM THE ORIGINAL BILL OF RIGHTS (as affirmations, not amendments).
This is where I would start. What are your ideas?
