R-19 Dump the "woke" financial system - PART 2

Resistance 19

Read Part 1 if you haven't yet. 

You will likely still need to be at least partially in the system for now. This includes having some form of financial accounts at a bank or credit union. It will not be possible for most of us to immediately exit the banking system. Most of us have various monthly bills to pay, debt payments to make, shopping to do, paychecks to cash, social security and other checks that need direct deposit, and so forth. It is getting increasingly difficult to do these things in a "cash only" manner, especially after the last few years of lockdowns and forced changes to the economy. Still possible, but difficult. And this situation will only get worse, as the push to a "cashless society" picks up steam. The reality is you likely will need to remain at least partially in the financial system to be able to conduct your day-to-day business. 

Here are some additional thoughts for your consideration:

>>> You are still going to need some money for normal use, for a least a while. 

>>> Move to a cash-only (and barter) basis to the extent that you can. Don't worry about not being able to do this perfectly. Do the best you can.

>>> Keep a small amount of money in the bank. How much money depends on your situation - I would suggest a couple of months' worth of expenses, plus an emergency fund with enough in it to cover a major home or car repair.

>>> Keep a certain amount of cash in a safe, hidden place at home or elsewhere. Maybe divide it up between two safe places. How much cash to keep is up to you and depends on your circumstances.

>>> Turn much of your remaining cash into useful physical assets, such as productive land*, tools, guns & ammo, solar systems, water systems, food storage, etc.

>>> *Productive land may include a homestead (grow / raise food), wooded acreage (timber, firewood, hunting, foraging), land with water on it (water, fishing), space for your business, or even rental property (but consider how you will collect the rent post-collapse). 

>>> Turning some of your cash into useful training (self-defense, shooting, first aid, nursing, various trades, etc.) is likely a good idea. Training cannot be stolen or lost to fire, but it can be lost to time.

>>> Junk silver is a good option for a small percentage of your money, but other things should come first. Some physical gold that you hold in your possession might make sense for wealthy folks with lots of extra money. Remember, despite how they are touted on TV, gold and silver are NOT growth investments, but rather are a storehouse for your wealth. 

>>> There is no such thing as 100% safe. You must learn to live with some risk in life, otherwise you are going to be a miserable person. The smart thing to do, of course, is to manage that risk - to minimize it the best you can. Then rest easy knowing you've done the best you can, and its in God's hands now.

>>> Companies that hold your gold and silver for you are not insured by the federal government. Those companies can go bankrupt, then a Court will decide when and if you get your gold and silver.

>>> Companies that hold your gold and silver for you may not be able to return it to you after SHTF (corruption by the company, confiscation by government, lost to looting, fires, etc).

>>> Stuff in your possession (metals, tools, guns, food, supplies) can be stolen or destroyed by fire, flood, etc. Don't put all your eggs in one basket.

The Bottom Line:  There are a lot of things to consider, and no easy answers. Dumping the woke and doomed economic system of the Elites is going to take planning, effort, and lots of hard work on your part. But it will be worth it. You are moving from being a debt-slave and wage-slave, to being truly free, probably for the first time in your life. If you want that, then work your ass off to get it. If you don't want that, then pour yourself a Bud Light, watch some CNN, and decide what pronouns you are going to use tomorrow.

R-18 Dump the "Woke" and Doomed Economic System - Here's How

Resistance 18

By Tim Gamble
Join the Resistance! Subscribe by email (click this link)

Let me start by addressing what some may consider a contradiction in my ideas. I am simultaneously telling folks to fight the end of Cash (see R-08 and R-09) and telling folks to get out of the doomed economic system. This is not a contradiction.  The Elites want an end to cash, preferring a cashless, digital system to better monitor, tax, and control the lesser classes. It is against that control I fight, not for the current system, which I think we should abandon to the extent we can.

Economic Fascism

In R-16 and elsewhere, I've talked about building alternative systems to the worldly systems of the Elites. One of the worldly systems we need to replace is the current economic system.

Our economic system isn't true capitalism, and hasn't been for many decades. Our current system is Economic Fascism (Big Government + Big Business + centralized banking + dollars backed by nothing + massive public and private debts), designed to enhance the wealth and power of the Elites.

The current move towards a "digital" economy is meant to drive us even deeper into Economic Fascism. The Elites want a digital system to better monitor, tax, and control we lesser classes. But, how do we build an alternative to their system?

Ideas For Dumping Economic Fascism

Start by getting your financial house in order. Reducing your expenses and getting out of debt are very important first steps. The fewer bills you have, the less dependent on the current system you will be. You will also be much more prepared to survive the digital, entirely cashless, economy the Elites are implementing. Check out my article Financial Preparedness: Back to the Basics for some great ideas on this topic.

The Bible says debt is slavery. "The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender" (Proverbs 22:7). We are slaves to those we owe money. No wonder the wealthy Elites love massive public and private debt. It gives them lots of slaves. 

Next, try to put aside at least one year's worth of food (more is better) before being being forced into the all-digital system. You then can keep your stored food "topped off" without it being as apparent to their algorithms that you are stockpiling (or in their terms "hoarding") food. Same goes for cleaning supplies, hygiene supplies, first aid supplies, OTC medications, vitamins and supplements, and so forth. Do most of your stockpiling ("hoarding") now, before we are forced to go cashless. Once we are forced into the all-digital system, it will be easy for the Government to know exactly who is stockpiling, and what. 

I especially recommend you buy any guns, ammo, body armor, night vision, and other politically incorrect items sooner rather than later. I do believe they want to use the cashless, digital economy to regulate the second amendment out of existence. 

Reduce your personal consumption of everything. Adopt a simpler lifestyle. Live well within your means. Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle. Be a saver, not a consumer. If you had to, could you support yourself and your family on half your present income? You may have to some day, so start making the lifestyle changes now.

Barter will become a major means of economic exchange for people not willing to fully buy into the new digital system. Do you know people you can barter with? Do you produce things that could be used for barter? Do you have knowledge or skills you can barter? You can barter some of your supplies, of course, but eventually you will run out. What then? Now is the time to figure this out. Become a producer, not a consumer

Make contacts with local farmers and other producers, and start building your barter networks now. Do it now, so you won't be scrambling to figure this out after the fact. Another reason to make contacts and start building networks now is that you are going to need people you trust, and who trust you. Once government figures out that people are bartering instead of placidly joining the digital economy, they will make barter illegal. This will force us into an underground, black market. For this, we are going to need people we trust and who trust us. 

Become less dependent on Amazon, the Big Box stores, and national chains by seeking out small, independent stores and suppliers in your area, and forming relationships with them. This means locally-owned gun stores, hardware stores, feed stores, gardening centers, salvage stores, independent grocers, butcher shops, and so forth. Meet the owners and managers, befriend the employees, and become known as a good customer to them. You'll be surprised by how much these relationships will help you in the future. You won't be able to switch overnight entirely, but shop locally whenever you can. 

Metals, such as gold, silver, and even lead (in the form of ammo), will also be a primary means of exchange for those wishing to avoid the digital system. Most of us probably can't afford gold at this point, but silver and ammo are still relatively affordable. Copper pennies (1981 and before) and even nickels (75% copper, 25% nickel) will likely retain value and be used as a means of exchange. They both are already worth more in metal content than their face value (copper pennies are worth almost 2½¢ each and nickels almost 6¢ each at this time). You may be interested in my article Prepper's Guide to Junk Silver.

David Kobler (aka SouthernPrepper1 on YouTube) has spoken often of his "metals plan" for post-collapse. His plan is to be a hardware store for his community - to be a supplier of nails, screws, wire, fencing, and other construction materials (both metal and non-metal). To that end, SP1 has been salvaging these materials for many years, building that supply he can use, sell, or trade post-collapse. I think this is a brilliant idea and wish I had starting doing this myself years ago. 

The government may attempt to confiscate precious metals at some point (they did so in the past). I believe that may push our unsustainable economic system over the edge into full-scale collapse, and We the People into full-scale rebellion. At that point, folks will pay little attention to the failed government and its authorities.  

A Return To The Old Paths

The most important thing, and the hardest, is to stop being a wage-slave. I'll say it again: Become a producer, not a consumer. This is part of my Biblical Agrarianism concept (or just Agrarianism for those of you uncomfortable with Bible talk). 

Buying land and setting up a homestead, where you and your family can be as self-reliant as possible, is a good way to go (but not the only way). Doing this with a community of similar folks also seeking self-reliance would be even better.  Consider moving to a small town or rural area with lots of nearby farms and country folk, or get together with some other families and start your own self-reliant community!

Don't want to be a farmer? That's cool. Agrarianism doesn't  mean everyone must be a farmer or homesteader - after all, there are plenty of support functions and other necessary jobs that must be done. Perhaps you can start your own business serving local folks. I especially would recommend businesses that produce, build, or repair. The possibilities are endless.

R-17 Dump "Woke" Churches!

Resistance 17

By Tim Gamble
Join the Resistance! Subscribe by email (click this link)

Get out of modern liberal / progressive / "woke" churches.  Instead, find a small Bible-believing, Bible-teaching congregation to join. Or find a home church or private Bible-study group to meet with on a weekly basis. Or start one of your own with family and friends who also believe in the Bible. 

In the 1960s and1970s, modern feminism (anti-male, anti-family, anti-traditional values) began infecting many Christian Churches. Many pastors and other leaders did nothing, or even embraced modern feminism, often out of fear of losing members, donations, or even their jobs, if they didn't fit in with modern times.

In more recent decades, the concept of "social justice" (which is absolutely not the same as Biblical justice, see the book Why Social Justice Is Not Biblical Justice) has infected many Christian Churches. Likewise, "environmental justice" - another non-Biblical concept - has also gained traction in many Churches, Today, most pastors and other leaders have embraced social and environmental justice out of a desire to fit in with the modern world (though they would call it being "relevant" and "authentic" - two buzz words of the Far Left).

This desire to "fit in with the world" is condemned in Scripture many, many times. Yet, many modern Christians try to adopt worldly ways, thinking it is okay because they are giving it a supposedly "Christian" spin. It is not okay. We are followers of The Way, not followers of The World. We are called to be set-apart, not to fit in.

God, and God alone, decides what is right and what is wrong, what is sin and what is not, what is good and what is evil. What God has decided is never "out dated" or "old fashioned." We have not "out grown" what God has revealed to us. We do not become "relevant" or "authentic" by rejecting God's Laws. The world may praise us for doing so, but God won't. 

Let me be clear on this: God decides what love is, not us. God decides how we are to love Him. God decides how we are to love others. We don't decide this for ourselves. God tells us exactly how we are to love Him, and how we are to Love others. It is NOT up to us to decide how we will love Him, or how we will love others. God has already decided this for us. Read the scriptures. Its all laid out right there. 

Worldly ways are not God's ways, and slapping a Christian bumper sticker on it won't change that fact. Follow God, not the World. Reject modern "Christianity" that tries to fir in with the World. Reject churches, pastors, and teachers that worry more about being seen as relevant than about pleasing God.

You may also be interested in my article Precepts of Biblical Survivalism, over on my Dystopian Survival website. 

Personal Note:  I believe in the whole Bible, from Genesis 1:1 through Revelation 22:21. I don't consider any part of the Bible to be "old-fashioned," "out-of-date," or otherwise "irrelevant" to modern times. I find no reason to compromise with the modern World. I don't care if I "fit in" with modern times, nor do I worry about what others may think. I worry only about what my Creator thinks. At least, this is my goal, and I am finding it easier to stick to that goal each day as I watch the World slide ever deeper into corruption, filth, decadence, and perversion of all types. Why anyone would want to "fit in" with this Worldly system is beyond me.

R-16 Building Alternative Systems

Resistance 16

By Tim Gamble
Join the Resistance! Subscribe by email (click this link)

"We have to build alternate systems.  I don't think we can stop them, but we can chose not buy their food, take their drugs or mRNA vaccines. We can chose to not use their "health care providers."  We can be our own - independent people outside of their hellscape." -- Dr. Robert W. Malone, MD, in a tweet made on Jan. 11, 2023

In a discussion on Twitter regarding mRNA vaccines in livestock and companion animals (yes, they are real and happening), Dr. Robert Malone made a brilliant suggestion. "We have to build alternative systems" (full quote above). In context of the discussion, Dr. Malone was referring to the need for alternative systems of medicine and agriculture. 

I whole-heartedly agree more with Dr. Malone. I have been saying the same thing for at least the last eight years. In fact, I have gone far beyond Dr. Malone's advice to build alternative agricultural and healthcare systems. I have been saying we need to get out of the worldly system altogether. Not just get out of the world's food and healthcare systems, but out of its education, entertainment, financial, and every other worldly system. This includes the modern worldly Church. 

The Elites have spent the last 100+ years building the current world-system, one that highly favors them at the expense of us ordinary folks. They are using a combination of modern technology, artificial intelligence, mass psychological manipulation (PSYOPs) , and technocracy (basically, a scientific dictatorship controlled by them) to force us even more into their version of utopia (for them - dystopia for the rest of us). The only way to stop them at this point is to build an alternative world system to theirs. 

What would such an alternative world system look like? I have an idea: "A return to the old paths of self-reliance and local economies built around agrarian communities." I call this concept Biblical Agrarianism, but those uncomfortable with talk of God and the Bible, you can just call it Agrarianism. It's much the same thing. 

Agrarianism is philosophy and an economic system which places primary importance on agriculture and related fields, and in rural and small town living, as opposed to industrialized, urban living. 

Agrarianism doesn't  mean everyone must be a farmer or homesteader - after all, there are plenty of support functions and other necessary jobs that must be done - but rather that our lives, culture, economy, and political structure should reflect the primary importance of agriculture and related fields, including other natural resources (energy, timber, mining, etc.). 

It also doesn't mean abandoning modern technology and scientific advances. Instead, we would use those modern tools to our advantage, rather than letting those tools be used to control us. 

Agrarianism is the way forward. It has many advantages:
  • It is a much more sustainable system.
  • It is certainly a much less corrupt system.
  • It is a much healthier lifestyle, both physically and emotionally.
  • We will be much less dependent on China and other foreign powers.
  • Smaller, Less Costly and Less Powerful Government
  • Less Control Over "We The People" By The Elites
Finally, I believe the agrarian lifestyle is much more conducive to living God's way rather than worldly ways. Hence, my use of the term "Biblical Agrarianism," and why I think Christians especially should seek a return to these old paths. 

I've already begun writing about Agrarianism over on my Dystopian Survival website. Check out these articles:

R-15 What about armed resistance?

Resistance 15

What about armed resistance?

Since I write about Resistance, some folks may wonder about armed resistance. Am I calling for armed resistance? A violent rebellion? A civil war? No, I am not.

Armed resistance is an absolute last resort, as it is extremely difficult with deadly consequences

Despite the fantasies presented in many survivalist novels, most of us are not prepared to become guerrilla fighters, and likely would only get ourselves and probably our families killed. Most of us, me included, lack the fitness, training, and self-discipline to be a warrior fighting on the frontlines.

And lone wolf attacks accomplish nothing, except to give the media some wonderful propaganda to spin and to give government an excuse for yet more restrictions to our freedoms. Lone wolves aren't striking blows against the system. To the contrary, they are stupidly playing into the hands of the Elites, who understand information warfare much better than they do.

I strongly believe in the right to self-defense, but I also strongly reject the unprovoked or unnecessary use of violence to achieve our goals. My advice for now is to concentrate instead on resisting in safer and more effective ways.

We are in an information war, and an economic war, not a physical war. At least not yet.

R-14 Some Ideas on Resisting

Resistance 14

By Tim Gamble
Join the Resistance! Subscribe by email (click this link)

Some Ideas on Resisting:
  • Honest elections matter, so fight for election reform, voter ID laws, and especially an end to ballot harvesting. 
  • Control of the Judiciary is critical. Judgeships matter deeply. 
  • Be very active in local politics and talk to local officials. Local efforts, where our "leaders" must deal with us face-to-face on a daily basis, can be very effective.
  • In reality, local politics are more important than state politics. And state politics are more important than Federal politics. 
  • Influence your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and fellow church members. Don't be cowed by political correctness or wokeness. 
  • Avoid mainstream (corporate) media. Look for alternative form of journalism. But always think for yourself. 
  • My opinion: the best source of real journalism today is The Epoch Times.
  • Learn about Technocracy, which is a primary tool the Elites are using to change our world. 
  • A great introduction to technocracy is my article Technocracy, The Power Elite, and the Transformation of Human Civilization from January 2022. 
  • A great source of news regarding technocracy is the website Technocracy News & Trends.
  • Men, provide for, protect, and lead your family. Don't give in to feminist ideas, worldly ways, modern sensibilities, wokeness, and political correctness. Be a Real Man. YOU are responsible for your wife and family. 
  • Parents, you are responsible for your children's welfare, not schools, teachers, or even the government. It does NOT take a village to raise a child; it takes parents to raise a child. Teach your children, raise them to be Real Men and Real Women when they grow up, and stand between them and the dangers of political correctness and wokeism. 
  • Start building networks and communities of like-minded people you can trust. This takes time and effort, which is why it needs to be done now, not later. I have lots of community building articles on my Dystopian Survival website. 
  • Also, my recent article, Biblical Agrarianism - A Way Forward?, may be of interest. The concept is self-reliance and local economies built around agrarian communities
  • Be especially wary of polices and laws that can be used as a "backdoor" to limit or take away our Freedoms. Examples: Hate speech laws allow the government to define "hate" however they wish. School anti-bullying policies more often are used to prevent your children from wearing a patriotic shirt ("bullying" immigrants) rather than stopping a real bully from taking your kid's lunch money. Red Flag laws have "gun confiscation" written all over them, especially in light of the APA's willingness to define traditional masculine traits (ambition, drive, competitiveness) as "harmful." The move to a cashless, digital economy is really about the ability to monitor and control the masses. Likewise for digital IDs

R-13 Strengthening Your Family

Resistance 13

By Tim Gamble

I've mentioned this several times in previous Resistance articles, but the Elite want to end the traditional family unit. From R-04" "The Elites want to end the traditional concepts of family and religion, because they want people to have no loyalties other than to their new authoritarian scientific dictatorship.

They want to end the traditional family, so fight for it - starting with yours. How? Here is something I wrote yesterday on my Dystopian Survival website. It is just a few basic suggestions, but it will make a solid starting point for many families:

Family Bonding 

The break down of the family unit over the last sixty years is startling. Is it any wonder our world is in as big a mess as it is? One of the big reasons, in my opinion, is a lack of traditional family bonding. Americans, and other Westerners, typically don't go to church together anymore. We don't typically eat family meals together, at least not without our TVs and smart phones actually dominating this "family time." We don't actually spend much time together as families anymore. We too busy doing all the other stuff we have been convinced we "have to do," instead of making time for each other. 

Some ideas to increase family bonding:
  • Have a least one meal together as a family on most days. Turn off the TV and phones during family dinner hour. Talk. 
  • Have a family game night once a week (or once every two weeks or whatever works for your family) and make it a priority. Don't skip it.
  • Read the Bible and pray as a family. Sure, your teenagers will roll their eyes, but you should be much more concerned about being a good Mom than about being a cool Mom. 
  • Go to Church as a family! Yes, that includes Dad - no sleeping in, playing golf, or watching football.

GREAT Community Resource -

If you've been around the prepper, survivalist, or homesteading communities, chances are you already know this GREAT resource. But if you are fairly new to these communities, you may not have discovered it yet. That GREAT community resource is - "The best handpicked prepper content online. Every day."

Prepper Website has undergone a recent revamp, with a fresh, clean, uncluttered look. But it still has daily links to the best handpicked prepper, survivalist, and homesteading content from across the Internet. Typically, they have about seven new links every day. 

Prepper Website also does in-depth product reviews. A couple of examples:
Prepper Website does occasionally post links to my articles (Thank You!), but I am otherwise unaffiliated with them. I do visit them almost daily to see what articles others have written. If you haven't checked them out yet, please do so soon!

R-12 Resisting The Elites

Resistance 12

By Tim Gamble

How do we resist the Elites?  The best way to resist is to simply do the the opposite of what they want. 

  • They want open borders, so fight for secure borders and controlled immigration.
  • They want to end national sovereignty, so fight for national sovereignty and a strong military. 
  • They want to ridicule and belittle patriotism, so be patriotic, and encourage others to be patriotic, too.
  • They want to hide the good parts of American and Western history, so learn real history, and make sure your kids learn real history, too. 
  • They want to end private property rights, so fight for laws protecting private property rights.
  • They want to restrict inheritance, so fight to end restrictions and taxation on inheritance.
  • They want a cashless economy, so insist on using cash. 
  • They want to end traditional Christianity, so be a traditional Bible-believing follower of the Messiah. 
  • They want folks who still insist on being Christians to at least attend modern, feminized, woke churches. So, get out of those liberal, progressive churches, and instead find a Bible-believing, Bible-teaching church or home church to attend instead. 
  • They want to end the traditional family, so fight for it. 
  • They want to end traditional ideas of gender, so teach your children to be Real Men and Real Women.
  • They want control over your children's education, health, and bodies, so fight for your kids. 
  • They want to teach your children, so find alternatives such as private and parochial schools, or homeschooling. 
  • They want you to get your news only from mainstream media, so find alternative sources for your news.
  • They want gun control, so fight for the Second Amendment. 
  • They want you to only trust (their) experts in science, medicine, and academia, so ALWAYS question "the experts."
  • They want you as dependent on government as possible (and therefore dependent on them), so be as independent and self-reliant as possible. 

How to actually do each of these things is each worthy of its own article (or book), but you should see the strategic pattern - always work towards the opposite of what they are pushing. Yes, it is an exhausting war on many fronts, but it is a war they have brought against us. Fight back, or die.

R-11 Protecting Critical Information (An Intro to OPSEC)

Resistance 11

By Tim Gamble

Reclaiming our privacy isn't about paranoia or becoming a social hermit - its about mindfulness and balance. 

The solution to loss of privacy is to think about what critical information you want to protect, and make a conscious effort to protect it. As part of this, we need to be mindful of what information we are giving away without realizing it. Bad guys notice what you reveal, as do nosy neighbors, woke activists, government bureaucrats, and many others. It is up to you to decide how much is too much to reveal for you and your family.

Identify Critical Information - Answers the questions: What information do we need to protect? What information do we want to keep private? What information could be used against us in some way? 

Examples of potentially critical information include financial information, social security numbers, passwords and PINs, medical information, political and religious affiliation, membership in certain organizations (NRA, GOA, prepper or survivalist groups, etc.), gun ownership, presence of valuable items in the home (guns, gold, silver, cash, tools, electronics, etc.), and purchases of large amounts of food and other supplies. It also may include certain plans (home security measures, personal security measures, when and where we plan to "bug out," etc.). What exactly you consider critical information will depend on your own personal circumstances and concerns.

The first and most important part of protecting your critical information is to make sure that everyone in your family/group understands what information to protect. Share this critical information on a "need to know basis" only. Even within your family/group, not everyone needs to know everything. This doesn't mean that you don't trust your family or group members. Rather, the less people that know something, the less chance of it accidentally being revealed. 

If you have children in your family, you need to talk to them about not sharing certain information with non-family members. Teach them to respond to questions about the family's finances, religion, politics, firearms in the home, parents' jab status or opinions on vaccines, by responding "I don't know," and "You'll have to ask Mommy or Daddy about that." This includes not answering these questions 
from teachers and other authority figures. "I don't know," and "You'll have to ask Mommy or Daddy" are perfectly valid answers for a child to give their teacher. Young children will need to be reminded of this often. Also, be careful about what information you share with and around your children, as they do have ears, and they do repeat things.

This topic broaches on Operational Security (OPSEC), a truly vast topic. OPSEC is a five-step process:
  • Identify Critical Information 
  • Identify Potential Threats
  • Identify Vulnerabilities
  • Assess the Risks
  • Apply Countermeasures
I will cover OPSEC in much more detail in future articles.

R-10 Privacy Is Paramount

Resistance 10

By Tim Gamble

This may sound strange coming from the guy who regularly puts his political, social, and religious opinions - often controversial and very anti-woke - out on the Internet for all to see, and has been doing so for the past 20 years. In our new Dystopian world, privacy is paramount

The more I study what is going on, the more I realize the importance of privacy, and how difficult it is to guard. Don't fall for the "only bad guys have to worry about privacy" line of faulty reasoning that many people push. 

Its been more than ten years since Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg made news by saying  that people no longer have an expectation of privacy and that privacy was no longer a "social norm." Its even truer today. The end of cash, should it happen, will be another major hit to privacy, allowing government and corporations to track our every transaction. This situation suits the Elites just fine, as it aids their plans to utterly control every aspect of our lives. 

There is so much that can be said on this topic, but in this article, I want to stress one important, but often overlooked, fact: The single biggest threat to your privacy is you, your spouse, and your children. 

That's right. The biggest threat is not government, Facebook, or Google. Its not online hackers. Its you saying the wrong thing in front of the wrong person at the wrong time. Its your spouse oversharing on social media. Its your kids talking to their friends or teachers. 

Examples of how we give away our critical information:
  • Public conversations can be overheard by anyone nearby.
  • Private conversations can be revealed, accidentally or on-purpose, by anyone involved.
  • Our trash/recyclables can reveal our purchases, financial and medical information, even the supplies we are stockpiling.
  • Nearby neighbors can physically see much of our activities. 
  • Children, especially young children, tell EVERYTHING to their friends, schoolmates, teachers, neighbors, and other parents (even if you've told them not to).
  • Social media and over-sharing online, even if you are "hiding" behind a screen name or other fake identity (sorry, you are never really hidden online).
  • Parking stickers/permits can reveal where we work or go to school.

Have you considered how much personal information your car is giving away? Think about those family stick figures that are so popular today. Folks, justifiably proud of their families, put them on their back windows as representations of their family. But think about what it reveals to the world: the  number of family members, their sex and approximate ages, even what pets you have. Many of these stick figures often also show the interests of the family: Dad holding a fishing rod, Mom swinging a tennis racket, a young boy holding a baseball bat, an older girl wearing a cheerleader outfit.  And look, the family has two cats, but no dog. The bad guys now have a real good idea of the make up of that family, including many of their interests. 

But it doesn't stop there. That parking sticker reveals where you work. This bumper sticker reveals where you attend church (which, in turn, reveals much of your religious beliefs). Another bumper sticker reveals where your honor student attends school (which, in turn, reveals the general location of where you live). Favorite sports teams, various causes we support, what groups we belong to, and other interests can also be revealed. Quite a database of private information we put on public display without a second thought. 

Bumper stickers and window decals can also reveal political affiliation and ideology, even who we voted for in the last election. Or who we plan to vote for in the next. Pro-life? Pro-Gun? Pro-Trump?  Liberals are getting triggered just reading your car in the parking lot. And, thanks to those bumper stickers and parking permits, they now know exactly where you work and where your kids go to school. Think about that. 

My next article in the Resistance series, I will discuss privacy solutions (hint: its not about paranoia or becoming a social hermit - its about mindfulness and balance) or That article, Protecting Critical Information (An Intro to OPSEC), should post tomorrow.
