=== From The Editor===
According to Scott Bolan, an expert on the topic of “mental warfare”, victimization begins in the mind and long before any type of crisis or attack is experienced.
Victims are the ones who get herded into refugee centers to suffer.
Victims are the ones who get their guns taken away… and who have no backups to use to protect themselves.
Victims are the ones who freeze during a mugging, a home invasion, or an attempted rape.
I recently caught up with Scott and asked him to define what he feels decides the mental “victory” in the battle over self-mastery – and here he offers…
The 3 “Mental Warfare” Principles That Separate
The Peasants Of Our Society… From the WARRIORS!
Or are you preparing for victory?
You've GOT to have the right mental attitude, the right warrior mindset, if you're not going to let yourself become a victim… and this is something the masters of mental and physical warfare have known for centuries.
Famous tacticians and masters of strategy like Sun Tzu taught that to defeat your enemies, to become VICTORS and not victims, you must attack your enemies where they are weakest…and that to defeat them without fighting them is the truest victory.
This is all mental warfare, which is not concerned with appearances or honor. In mental warfare, there is no such thing as a “fair fight”.
There is only winning, and making your enemy do most of the work for you.
Mental Warfare Defines Who Is A “Warrior” – And Who Is A “Peasant”…
In mental warfare, there are warriors and peasants.
Peasants are people who live by default. Warriors are people who live and think by design.
Peasants are people who go through life as dependents.
They are status-conscious, comfort-seeking consumers.
Are you more concerned about saving up enough money for their next iPhone than putting that same money into developing the skills, equipment, and knowledge it takes to protect your family?
Are you too worried about what people think to stand up for your principles and defend yourself?
If you answered yes to either of those questions, you're a peasant..
The Curse Of The “Peasant” Mind-Set…
Peasants swallow whatever they are told by the media.
They are conditioned to respond in a Pavlovian fashion.
In terms of mental warfare, peasants don’t take responsibility, for themselves or for anything else, and this is the key to understanding this mindset.
They don’t take responsibility for their own strength, their growth, or their safety.
For example, a peasant wouldn’t want to learn self-defense or own a gun to defend his or her home.
They default to how they feel emotionally about that, rather than dealing with reality.
In other words, a peasant is an emotional idealist, who is willfully ignorant of how the world works and how dangerous it is.
Worse, peasants don't defend their liberty, or the freedom of their families, from assault.
Do you want to be a peasant… or a warrior?
How To Live The Life Of A Warrior…
A true warrior is someone who, according to the tenets and principles of mental warfare, fights for his own self-mastery.
There are 3 of these principles:
- Warriors take responsibility for their own strength, for their own growth, and for their own safety.
- Warriors are realists who live by design.
That doesn’t mean they don’t have fun or that they don’t dream big dreams.
It doesn’t mean that they aren’t creative.
It means they enjoy comfort and society, but are not defined by society or by comfort-seeking.
It also means…
- Warriors are the ones who protect themselves and their families.
In other words, warriors understand preparedness and self-sufficiency.
They plan for survival.
They develop themselves.
Where the peasant says, “Feed me and I will obey,” warriors create their own food supply independent of the “system” or crisis they find themselves in.
YOU can be such a warrior, such a VICTOR.
YOU can protect your family.
It all starts with preparing to survive, in preparing to deal with emergencies, social chaos, and all the things that can go wrong in our dangerous world.
