Bringing your child up to survive the next World War

A Listmania! list by Kiwi
The list author says: "The cyclic view of history indicates that we are inevitably heading into another cycle of major worldwide conflict which will surpass WW2. Knowing that we are entering such a cycle, it behoves us to ensure our children are prepared for the conflict that they will be a part of, willingly or unwillingly. Denying this reality does not make the inevitability of the future course of history disappear, it simply means you as a parent have squandered an opportunity to assist your children in surviving what will happen.

You have a conscious choice to make: Your children WILL be involved in a major conflict, they WILL be in combat or terrorist situations to which Iraq is a mere prelude. The question then becomes, do you want your children to be unprepared physically and psychologically, or do you want them to be trained and prepared. This will happen, regardless of whether you prefer to deny what is happening until it actually happens.

Many choose to believe that no-one means them harm or would deliberately attack them. Sadly, history proves that they are wrong, both at an individual and societal level. The same citizens denigrate those who believe in preparing for conflict. They do not want to believe that there is evil in the world. Meanwhile. there are those of us that do want to ensure our children are prepared and able to cope with what we believe will happen.

So how DO you prepare your children? Physical Fitness, ability to think, focus, commitment, self-discipline, survival skills, a survival mentality, martial arts, shooting, the ability to excel. This list provides a few pointers, it’s more of a direction to look in and then take it from there. If it’s made you think and do something, it’s served it’s purpose. If you react in outrage and denial, so sorry, you’re a sheep. “Baaaaa.” Just don’t criticise those that train to protect you."
