    Who Will Teach Our Young People Survival Skills?



    There has been a lot of talk lately about millennials lacking basic survival skills. Why do you think that is?

    It's easy to blame the young people, but wasn't it up to their parents and grandparents to teach these skills?

    If millennials are struggling with survival skills, what will happen to the generations that follow them?

    Where did you learn? Your children? Your grandchildren?

    That is a good question.

    I know people who are almost self-sufficient. I say almost because they still drive automobiles to stores from time to time. Still, they know so much. They are passing it on to their grandchildren.
    There are small farming families who know how to live, as well.

    For the majority of the Western world, there seems to be more in need of knowledge than there are teachers. Sadly, most of the people in need of knowledge don't know they are in need of knowledge.

    Other than to my kid, the only knowledge dispensed by me is here.

    The reason for that is I can hide behind this keyboard.

    I have been scoffed at in the past for trying to intertwine basic skills with prepping.

    The general consensus among the sheeple is, "what for? I don't need to know anything, it is all taken care of."

    They have been conditioned by libtard teaches to be idiots with no useful education.

    Further, if what I post here is not of value, I can stop at anytime, I don't care.

    One of my son's told me once that I should be a teacher. Not a school teacher, or a patient, kind type of teacher, but rather a person who makes others think. Sometimes not very nice thoughts but still, they are thinking.

    I told him typically you can't make a living by pissing others off.

    He thought about that one for a moment and agreed.

    You have a fantastic, unique sense of humor, something most people lack, you would make a great teacher.

    I have the best of two worlds.
    I make a living by troubleshooting and repairing avionics problems of UH-60 helicopters. I love my job. Still, I need more. Thankfully, there are a couple hundred other people on the airfield. Many of those people operate with flawed logic and illogical thinking. This gives me the chance to help them see the error in their thinking. By nature, I use biting wit and sarcasm when confronting stupidity and that has earned me the nickname, "asshole." I beam with pride whenever I am addressed by that name.

    We must be brothers, asshole and asshole.

    I got the same results for my efforts.

    The only thing I would not try and teach was gunsmithing, two separate skills need there,

    one cannot be taught, the aptitude has to be there.

    You want to hear creative names, try teaching teenage boys.
    My favorite this year has been being called "Racist assed Trump looking M.....F....."

    By the way, I don't resemble Donnie whatsoever.

    I'll tell you this much though, and you can take it or leave it. The social service system has done as much damage to our country as the liberal teachers and their wussification agenda.
    Those WAPs will go out of their way to justify for a kid why it isn't really the kid's fault.
    So in a way, they are being taught survival skills. They will survive in the world we detest and shun. But they will survive, even thrive in a socialist system. And if the apocalyptic event occurs, there will be a surprising amount of them that will survive, because they have been taught the skill of self vindication for acts we would find heinous.

    Just because I am peaceful does not mean I have forgotten how to be violent.
