The Preparer Strategy
This is a continuing article in my Ways to Contribute article series: A series on ways for the average dissident to get involved in the movement.
In our last Ways to Contribute article, titled Ways To Contribute: The Community Chieftain, I put forward the community leader strategy:
By chieftain, I simply mean a ringleader of a local area or organization.
This leadership can be in whatever function you can make happen: politics (obviously), city/county functions, local administrative operations support, community events/organizing, nonprofits, or whatever else your speciality rests upon. There are a lot of possibilities here—I know one guy that is in our camp and has become one (of a few) chiefs in a local sheriff’s department, fascinatingly.
The preparer strategy is a similar strategy, but less risky because it is less in the spotlight. This is another low-risk option for those of you who would rather stay under the radar.
It is similar to the chieftain strategy because the preparer is also a ringleader, but one that is only present in the background until needed.
This is the guy who prepares for any contingency. Not just with material goods (but that is one part of it), but also with the networks needed to resolve any said event. This is the guy setting up networks for when the collapse inevitably occurs, or is out there stockpiling needed items that will be useful for future events.
This can be on a small scale or a large scale. Stockpiling items for your local community, or as an organization for the remnant as a whole.
For a concrete example, Look Ahead America is one such entity. Its leader, Matt Braynard, was definitely a preparer.
Before Jan 6, Braynard was organizing lawfare and lawyers into a cohesive unit to “fight for America”. He was collecting resources, donations, networks, and tangible goods (offices and locations) necessary to accomplish this fight. Once Jan 6 happened, he moved in to fight for the political prisoners. Others like us could not do that because we do not have the prepared capacity to do so.
He was able to do this because he spent the years prior preparing. He did not know the future, but he was getting prepared to the best of his knowledge, anyway. Because of this proaction, and the resources he accumulated, he was able to adequately respond rapidly when Jan 6 happened. He is not able to save all of our guys, but his work has been probably some of the most helpful to Jan 6ers and their families.
Dissidents often want quick solutions. “Go organize a militia and take over the country”, or some other such nonsense. But that’s not how it works. If we are to win, it will be slow. It’s going to be through cultural conquest, hardened institutions, and simply surviving. That is just the reality of it. So we need preparers working on the long game. The leftists have tens of thousands of nutcases doing just this, which is why they can pounce whenever we do anything.
Our guys that often do the best and support the most are those that have been quietly working in the background for years to get into a position needed to do just that. These are our preparers.
There are a decent number of people following this strategy, but we definitely could use some more. Especially in niche areas such as lawfare or political campaigning/financing. Local variants for community response would also be useful.
If this strategy sounds interesting to you, consider taking the preparer approach. Imagine what problems you feel we will face in the future, and start working toward acquiring the community, network, skills, and tangible goods needed to counteract that once it occurs. Do this based on targeting either the local or national level, depending on your risk tolerance.
Think of it like prepping, but for the entire movement instead of just yourself.
Considering what is coming to the United States, I think we can all agree that we could use all the organizational preppers we can get.
