SECESSION: Laugh, ridicule, and shun

Fixing Their Wagon
March 15, 2013

Shun them.

The model for this is easy enough to understand. If the person who owned the house down the road from you was known to be a child sex offender, would you invite him to your summer barbecues? Would you contract with his business to perform work? Would you shake his hand when you bumped into him at the store? You probably – hopefully – would not.

Apply the same treatment to the people who insist on living by doing violence to others. For they are exactly like child molesters in the sense that matters: They victimize people. They manipulate and coerce and threaten. They leverage power – force and its threat – to get what they want. It is only because we’ve been conditioned to accept the unacceptable via euphemism and evasion that we tolerate such people among us. Those reading this column no doubt do not accept it. Hence, they ought not to tolerate it. There may be occasions when we are forced to deal with them. But wherever possible, wherever we have the choice, we ought to elect not to deal with them. And we ought to tell them exactly why we want nothing to do with them. Call them on it. Do not let it – their reliance on violence – go unmentioned. Mention it. Bring it into the open. Make them squirm – those that still have the vestigial capacity to squirm when confronted with their own ethical atrocities. But never, ever, accept them as members of civilized society. Because civilization is dying on account of them.

Sounds like a great strategy.

Laugh at them, make them absurd, and then turn the other cheek.

Secession takes many forms!

One approach is to pick a new ship or one that has just been refurbished. Some of these include Disney Fantasy and Carnival Breeze. Also coming soon are Norwegian’s Breakaway and Royal Caribbean’s Royal Princess.

I’d say “what should you have done BEFORE your ruse ship becomes disabled”!

You should have your “bug out” bag. 

OK, you may have had to leave the guns home. But everything else should be there. 

Plastic bags, duct tape, water, food.

Hunker down.

It’s a survival situation.

Retrovirus — isolate yourself; become a germophobe.

Stuck — collect supplies. 

It’s a bug in situation with guaranteed extraction within a week. 

Good practice?

Stay out of situations where your movement is restricted! 

Airplanes, boats, trains, buses!

The big key is always have a plan!

Like Ike said: “Plans are worthless; planning is everything!”
