Hard Lessons: Urban Survival

When people talk about "Urban Survival", they loosely break into two camps: "It's not possible, bug out" and "hold down the block with your guns". Here's some real talk: There's urban collapse all around us right now, and having been exposed to a good deal of it, here are our "lessons learned" about the hard, cold reality of life on the streets.

Thoughts on Socialism

The East has seen and abandon the dreams of Communism, the west increasingly demands a more and more involved and socialist government, airing the woes of capitalism as proof that a more egalitarian system is necessary. What's the problem with this? Those demanding an end to capitalism have never lived under it. We make the argument that capitalism died with Woodrow Wilson, and the woes of today are the direct result of invasive regulatory systems and the fallout from the entitlement class. We tackle this tough issue with as bias as possible, a fact-based assessment, and incorporation of sources from both sides of the argument to arrive at our conclusions regarding the rise of socialism.
