Lesson Twenty One – Dealing With Success

If you manage to make it out of the ghetto, get a good job, find a sugar momma, get some inheritance, or whatever. If you manage to get out its a different world. People who aren’t dying for necessities have an ENTIRELY different set of beliefs, concerns, and perception.

Its like leaving Nazi ruled Europe after defeating Hitler and winning World War 2. And then when you get home there is no war. And furthermore people will never understand what they had to deal with. People just put it out of their minds and try to think about the nice things. They don’t want to relive your horrors when you talk about it. It’s almost as if people act like their never was a war.

People who haven’t lived in hyper violent societies will never understand them. They’ve never had to deal with that. They will think you exaggerate because they can’t fathom that life can be so bad. Their world is cushy and nice and the bad things while bad don’t fall in the same spectrum.

People have to endure all sorts of different things. And someone who has always lived in a nice community with people who don’t suffer and cops that don’t abuse will always have trouble understanding the world we lived in. They don’t know what a crackhead is in real life. They don’t know that someone can get their head bashed in for a bottle of beer that a drunk really wanted. That seems unreasonable to them and therefor impossible.

This is why the problems of the world will always persist. If everyone lived in the same environment we would all work together to make it better. The way it works in the real world though is that different people live in different environments. Its all split up by wealth, race, nation, etc. People on the bottom who suffer won’t ever have that bottom tier of human life “fixed”. It will always be shit. Because the people stuck in it get lost in it. They don’t have the means to change it. And the people who live above it don’t understand it and don’t make it a priority. It’s not something that affects them directly enough.

The most you can hope for is to join a higher tier of society. And you’re going to have to learn to not be so violent. You’re going to have to learn that the world is a different place even though its still earth. You can live ten blocks away from where people are hungry and dying of drug withdrawal and have educated beautiful friends, plenty of food, and a good life. The world is strange like that. But the ultimate goal is to get out of the shit. And then your next goal is dealing with that.

Lesson nineteen – Worthlessness

Being poor you are the disenfranchised. And it’s not just your income that makes you this way. It’s the place you live in, the people you live with, and everything about your situation in life. Rich people are incredibly important. Their lives and deaths affect the world around them. They do you can’t deny it. They have people working for them and people they’re stealing from, and a huge web of interaction with the world around them. You don’t. You have some debt that you owe creditors.

Poor people contribute nothing to society. Sometimes athletes and the intelligent ones (if they’re not killed by an oppressive culture of destroying threats) will rise above and leave. But then of course they’ve left. No one in poor communities contributes anything to anything. If you die someone else just takes your job and is miserable in it for little pay just like you were.

Because of this logical evaluation of people’s worth and the poor being of no value the poor consider themselves and each other to have no value. People can run around in the streets shooting the crap out of each other over minor insults and small sums of money and no one really cares. The killers don’t care, the dead don’t care, the bystanders don’t care. Everyone is just forgotten.

Put yourself in the place of a wealthy young man in a wealthy neighborhood with the mindset of a street thug. He sits on the side of the street in front of a friends house with a, lets say expensive because hes rich, gun on top of the wheel of his car selling…I guess pain killers and psych meds. They’re expensive. That’s not really logical. Why would he undertake so much risk to make relatively small amounts of money. Coming from a wealthy family in a wealthy neighborhood he literally stands to make as much money as his talent and imagination and hard work will make him. If he tried, he’d make good money. If he didn’t try he’d probably get by just fine.

The rest of us, the poor people, see people on the sidewalk selling drugs. Gun nearby, making small amounts of cash, taking a HUGE risk of their personal safety and freedom from jail or prison. You see it everywhere. And it’s not because it pays so well. It pays crap. And it always results in being robbed, shot, killed, put in prison, etc. But in reality that risk is mitigated by their world. They actually don’t have much to lose. Being robbed just means you start back where you did at the beginning of the day. Being killed changes nothing. Being put in prison is no lesser a quality of life.

It’s easy to accept that you’re a loser in a loser world and it will never change. You know you’re a loser and everyone else does but they’re losers too. And then go out and do anything because you have nothing to lose. You can’t be qualitatively more of a loser. A loser is a loser. You cant be a huge loser or a little bit of a loser. You either get what you want and have a good quality of life or you struggle and then die.

In the natural world everything is a loser. Everything gets killed or eaten or dies young. It’s only us humans that have some people who rise above that. In the natural world the apex predators still attack and destroy each other. Humans do too. But they don’t use claws and teeth they try to get more wealth. Which typically doesn’t destroy your peers. It just sets them back a minute while they rob someone else.

There is no getting out of being a loser without hard work. Even with it you probably will fail.

Lesson Eighteen – Thugs

Thugs are obvious. They look like crap because they drink and do drugs all day every day and they are wearing socks and flip flops. Odds are they only feel like victimizing crack heads and whatever other people that don’t fight back. They will however try you if they’re drunk and in a group.

They almost ALWAYS have guns on them. If there’s a group there’s literally a 100% chance that one of them has a gun. Its going to be a cheap old 1911 or glock or something but it will probably work and can obviously kill you.

What it comes down to is how much they want from you and their current mood. They’re always looking for an excuse to justify their actions to themselves. They will call you a name or threaten you or someone you know and expect you to say something back. They’ll take your response as a disrespect and then their actions thereafter are “defending their honor” from your disrespect. If there’s a group the rest will jump in and jump you when the leader does. They wont kill you though. They just want to beat you and steal whatever you have.

There’s a ton of possible outcomes. If you say nothing odds are they’ll just disrespect you and let you keep going. That’s not really an option because they’re going to victimize you literally every time they see you after that. They might see that as an invite to robbing you right there because you aren’t going to put up a fight.

You can fight back, if you knock out the alpha one of two things will happen. Either everyone will laugh and cheer and think you’re the greatest thing ever or they’re going to try to jump or shoot you. Either way the alpha will need to regain his dignity and will come back and try to kill you at a later date. If you lose the fight they’re all going to jump you and steal whatever you have on you no matter how worthless.

You can run. They won’t chase you. If they do that’s the perfect time to shoot them. The best course of action would be to run. Make it around a corner and take a defensive position. The first one that comes around the corner light him up with a few center mass shots and he’s literally going to jump out of his shoes like a deer that’s been shot and then go crashing to the ground. Unarmed pursuers will run. They’ll scatter like roaches. Armed pursuers are going to take the opportunity to shoot at you. After you fire the first few shots you’ll want to move again. Keep the same strategy its almost impossible to attack a defensive position without flanking it. So keep conscious of being flanked and their straight on attacks will be met with high losses every time. By defensive position I mean a spot that’s not visible until it’s too late for them. Hidden enough. You should be an incredibly small target behind cover.

If running isn’t an option i.e. they would run much faster than you standing your ground is the only real option. Not provoking further action by insulting or threatening back and continuing to move but not taking your eye off your attackers. Then you simply shoot the ones that don’t run like the wind when it comes to that. If they’re still there when that pop is heard they’re armed and overly confident.

The wonderful thing about street thugs is their lack of combat experience and knowledge. They have no idea how to be defensive. They are all offense. Their defense is in numbers. But you will be able to get them alone plenty. In your neighborhood if there are specific people who are seeking trouble with you you cant just live and let live. You have to get rid of them somehow. Tons of options for this. The easiest options are within the confides of the law. Telling the police where he keeps drugs and guns. They like to raid drug dealers. If he’s too small time for that the next best option is erasure. Their existence is so inconsequential if he disappeared off the face of the planet no one, odds are, would even file a missing person. So many tools, so many options, so many ways to do this that its actually easy. You just have to pick whats most practical. Also leave no links to you. Don’t ask around about the person. Be a total stranger and as much as a suspect as a leaf on a tree.

Freddie Gray

Cops can be charged for crimes now. Its probably the single biggest event in the history of this nation since the civil rights movement. Cops have always been above the law. Since the beginning. And most of the time it didn’t matter. But now people are realizing that not only do they have to stop and apprehend criminals but they have to treat them in a manner that’s civilized.

When cops beat and kill human beings under the guise of an arrest theyre going to be charged for it like the rest of us would be. I cant tell you how much this makes me want to just cry. Theyre so abusive and so horrible to so many people that it’s catching up to them. Its wonderful.

These people they arrest and kill are shitty people. They absolutely are. But its a police officers job to arrest them and let the justice system punish them. They love to think they’re the initial justice. A beating, a knee in the head on the pavement, shooting them, kicking, punching, tasing them is the initial justice. THEN they get sent off to be punished by the criminal justice sytem.

No where in our laws allows for them to be the initial punishment. No where does it say they’re allowed to beat and kill people when they’re shitty people. They are not the law. They are law enforcement. Today is so huge. This year is so huge. Cops have guns and unlimited power and massive numbers and all the sudden they have consequences…it’s amazing. Its so relieving. It’s so nice to know a cop will have to think about their actions. They will have to rethink drawing a gun on someone with a broken tail light. Or beating someone to death because they ran away. If running away from police was justifiably punished by death that’s what the law would be. The perpetrator will get extra time for it. It’s not the police officers job to beat them in the head with a baton until death. It’s just not. And now they go to prison for it.

Lesson Fourteen – Judge without judging

In retrospect every situation could have gone completely different. Just reaching behind your back to draw your gun can drastically change a situation. Let’s say you’re at the ATM. And some old guy sneaks up on you and starts yelling at you. It’s going to take a second to register what he’s mad about. He’s got a fifth grade education and probably drunk. If you draw and shoot him well you really weren’t in the right there. Yea you were at the ATM and you felt like you were being attacked. But you’ll spend a while in prison for it. If you don’t draw and end him but reach to draw he might draw. Or he might attack to try to stop you. In which case you’ll highly likely be in the right in the eyes of the law. If you do nothing and he yells at you about nothing and turns and walks away and continues yelling about everything and nothing then nothing comes of the situation. In other words your actions are equally as effective in completely changing a situation.

The goal is to always make the right decision. Make multiple wrong decisions and you lose. Don’t over compensate. Don’t make situations worse. Agree with upset people or ignore them. You don’t have the right defend yourself until you are actually defending your physical self. Your ego does not count. Judge the situation without judging the situation. Judgment is usually followed by an action. In the natural world where there is no police state on top of you rejudging the situation action is almost always the best way to deal with things. In the modern world you are forced to wait. You need to wait until the situation turns into the situation that the police state will deem your actions acceptable.

This is dangerous. This highly increases your chance at failure. If you could just blast someone for acting crazy then the good and bad wouldn’t coexist for too long. The bad would be all dead. But the bad are protected by laws. The bad are not judged until they are convicted of something. Many sociopaths and violent criminals coexist with the normal people. The ones that are good thrive. But you have to mind your own business and not be one of the bad. Be bad in a different way. Be the good guy whose worse than any bad guy. That’s the only way to survive.

Lesson Twelve – Great Role Models

Aaron Hernandez. He’s a great role model. There are a ton of great role models like him too. Prison is full of them. They didn’t take shit and they killed without any regards to the consequences. They didn’t let people disrespect them and those people are dead. I’m being sarcastic. They are great role models but role models of what not to be like. Sometimes you have to see people fail at things to know how to win. The human mind is pretty powerful at foresight and visualization. If you can see yourself following the paths of someone that failed you know how not to be. And that’s a start in a world where success is so shrouded with mystery by those who don’t have it.

You can deduct that not acting like Aaron Hernandez is a great way to stay out of prison. While he managed to get into the NFL he blew it. He lost more and at a very young age than most everyone could ever gain. Why? He took the wrong path. The path of offense. The path of ignorance. He followed every modern gangster’s mantra and he did so very well. He lost everything because of it. He didn’t know how to have humility. Someone spilled a drink on him and it turned into a double homicide. Someone else knew of the double homicide and it turned into triple homicide. That then turned into dying in a prison. And being buried in a prison graveyard. He couldn’t keep his eye on the prize he was too proud and too well into the mantra’s of hood rats.

There are no real role models that come out of the ghetto. It’s a very somber realization. It’s a slow violin playing in the background. It’s sad. No one that grows up or lives in this environment ever becomes someone you want to be. They always have that stigma and that fear and hate and tactical mind. They can never relax and be someone else. They can never be someone that had plenty and lived in beautiful places with well adjusted people and nothing but opportunity. They might currently live in the land of plenty. But there will always be that part of them. It’s like taking a tiger out of the jungle. The jungle will never leave him. A veteran out of war. The war is still there.

You can’t look to anyone who rose above. Not me or anyone. Not any athlete or any CEO or any successful person that came from nothing but pain and hate. You can never look to someone that learned how to feel invincible because they had absolutely nothing to lose. Someone that craved death because it was a release from the shit. You have to look to people who never had to live that life. Because they’re the goal. And not so much for you but your kids. And the future generations of people that walk this earth. No one should have to go through all the things we have. No one deserves it. We all come into this world innocent of everything. Totally ready to be shaped to our world. And no one deserves to be treated so poorly and have so little in a world that offers so little opportunity.

We learned how to be invincible and we learned how to be cold to everything and become capable of any horrors. For some reason once you have that you know you can never let it go. It’s impossible to let go…just in case you ever need it again. It would be nice to live in a world where no one has to have that. But you can’t look to people who have that. You have to look to people who don’t. They might seem weak or ignorant but their quality of life is so much better than ours. Ignorance is bliss.

Lesson Ten – The Police

Police are not your friend. Never ever call them or have anything to do with them unless absolutely necessary. The only viable situation in which to call police is to prevent the death or kidnapping of you or someone you care about. If they are already dead or kidnapped, the police are no longer of value. That’s IT. Your involvement with the police ENDS THERE. NO EXCEPTIONS. Do not call the police for petty crimes. Do not report crimes unless you can do so absolutely and totally anonymously. And only in situations in which the police can catch people in the act and don’t need your testimony.

A man who fights dragons too much eventually becomes a dragon. A man who stares into the abyss long enough eventually becomes the abyss. No that’s not my original quote its Neitzsche. A cop who fights criminals for long enough becomes a criminal. A cop who stares into the evils of the world for long enough eventually becomes the evils of the world. Cops deal with the worst people day in an day out. Drug abusers, thieves, psychotically violent people, child abusers, and people who break traffic laws and don’t care and people who live off law breaking, etc. They deal with angry drunks and people with a non functional level of intelligence…just everyone. That crap rubs off on them.

Cops also have unchecked power. Only recently have cops started being charged with things like murder and manslaughter. And that’s only because they’ve been so abusive and terroristic that people want cameras put on them. And people know you can film an arrest and get a good viral video because after the cops put someone in handcuffs they’re going to tase and kick and punch the person. Its just what they do, its so consistent that they’ll break the law you can catch them easy. They make the news constantly all over the country with viral videos of them beating and shooting and abusing the living shit out of people. They do it so much that people expect it. Which is by definition terrorism.

Cops don’t care. They just don’t. They don’t give a fuck about you or your situation or anything. If they pull you over for a traffic violation killing you crosses their minds many times. They are very weary of people who pull guns on them or get violent. They expect it in every situation. That mindset of kill or be killed weighs on them big time. Eventually they will kill someone. And not totally unjustified. The people they kill are usually total scumbags. But they don’t often do it in self defense. They love to take out that frustration and anger and stress on people. In their minds the¬†people deserve it. And typically they do. But deserving something and upholding laws conflict and the laws should always win. But they don’t. And just because the cop is dealing with you they typically assume that you’re the same scumbag that they always have to deal with. Even if you aren’t.

Not all cops are bad. Some genuinely care about their communities and don’t want to help contribute to a society of violence. But the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Even the good ones are humans with guns and power and a job that makes them immune to the law in a huge amount of situations. Cops came to my door with guns drawn and when I opened the door they pulled me out with a gun literally in my face and arrested me. They then went through my house and seized my property. Cops can do this. If they have a warrant. These cops didn’t. To the rest of us that’s aggravated assault, kidnapping, armed robbery and a breaking and entering. There was no way on earth a judge would have granted them a warrant based on the ramblings of a schizophrenic person. So they took it upon themselves.¬† And that’s cops. And that’s why you avoid them.

There’s no way you can win against cops. If they want you for anything there’s no getting away or convincing them that you’re not guilty or anything. The only thing you should ever say to an officer is “I plead the fifth”. Officers want your blood. And you’re giving it to them when you talk about situations. If you’re just getting a ticket you keep your hands on the wheel and say “Yes, sir” when he tells you you’re either getting a ticket or a warning. Never be condescending, never argue, never do anything. They are looking for an excuse. I’ve had a cop harass me for maybe 15 minutes, Im absolutely sure he wanted to see if he could piss me off and either shoot me or charge me with more crimes than an expired plate. He was very clearly fishing for more. An expired plate is nothing. In the great scheme of things it hurts no one, it does nothing, its just a fee that hasn’t been paid. Something like a ticket is the only reasonable response to something like an unpaid fee. To be screamed at and harassed and threatened is not reasonable. But…this is the police.

They are always looking for more. Petty crimes are petty crimes. They want someone to shoot. Someone to hit. Someone to drive their knee into while they are on the ground. They want that release. It makes them violent and dangerous and criminals. Like I said though there’s no way you can win against them. There are more of them than you. They have the best lawyers. The get an insane amount of preferential treatment by judges and jurors. No matter what you do they will always be human. They will always have to deal with horrible people and they will always become horrible people themselves. Avoiding them is the only successful strategy.
