Last October I published a nicely written guide to understanding what the OODA loop is.
In that article I went over some basics with regards to understanding the science behind its application as a principle. If one hopes to cause the trained monkeys that wear any combination of uniform or badges to hesitate and lose focus; what I am about to say should be made yours.
This is part one, the entire focus of this article will be on the extension of ones perimeter. Most humans living in the USA do not live in tribes or even family groups any more. This means our ability to defend against active incursions from heavily armed and armoured targets is reliant on our ability to prevent said incursion or at the very least cause it to lose momentum and concentration. We also rarely practice or even discuss the very real possibility of an incursion whether from non government criminals or government criminals.
“Eastern Kentucky University criminologist Peter Kraska, a widely cited expert on the “militarization” of domestic police departments, estimates that the number of SWAT team deployments has jumped from 3,000 a year in the early 1980s to more than 40,000 a year by the early 2000s.” Balko, 2006
This means over 109 raids occur every day with heavily armed military styled unit’s spearheading them. In a country with over 132,802,859 homes (per the census Bureau), these numbers mean that someone in your neighbourhood is being raided every week, possibly every day. As we know the governments of the world are quite good at recording whatever makes them look good and doing so with great precision. What they do not do is record the negative fallout or mistaken identifications resulting in deaths or dismemberment of innocents.
Violent non state based crime is also occurring and in most areas rapidly increasing. While many government studies show minor drops over a year or two the fact remains that over the past few decades violent crime perpetrated against individuals by other individuals has been rising. Home invasions occur in some areas with such regularity that many people are resigned to the fact that they will likely see one occur soon. Every area has its set of rules which may or may not allow the legal use of firearms or even knives for defense. Some areas do not allow any type of defense of self or home.
This leaves the individual with a very easily defined choice, regardless laws. Are you someone who is willing to defend your family regardless an overreaching governments laws or even against the government. Or are you the individual who would rather bow down to whomever claims to be in charge and does not care for your family?
What I am about to show you over the course of the next few articles including this one are ways to defend yourself. To prevent people from getting to us. To slow them down enough to get away safely or to have local support arrive. I long ago decided I was not the cowardly person who simply talks. Rather I have dedicated my life to assisting others in securing theirs from others. My actions are selfish, I feel good helping others. However, my selfish actions are also honourable, tested and easily put into practice.
Unlike many who have written books and speak regularly I test every principle, approach and item I promote. I do not base any of the approaches looked at on anything other than the desire for facts, reality and non government approaches. The approaches I offer you will rarely cost more than $500 in up front money. Yes, much of what I do is low budget. After all, I dont work for the government like many womanly men continue to do.
The next article will be posted within a few days, it specifically address’s extension of perimeter and being able to see and hear what a unit would as a single or couple in a house. Its time folks, time to put your feet down and stop allowing yourselves to be caged for non violent victimless crimes.
Free the mind and the body will follow.
