I started thinking about Breanne Fahs, one of the heroines of last week's blogs, the quarter million a year ASU professor who advocates for the extermination of the male species. I was just wondering how Ms. Fahs would fare in a post apocalyptic world.
As an old geezer, I think I'd do okay. Though physically I probably wouldn't do well being sent out on patrol. But I could man the fort pretty damn well. I've fired expert on both rifle and pistol a dozen times. I can load, fire and maintain an M-60 or .50 Caliber machine gun all day long. I can fire shoulder launched recoilless rifles and 40 mike mike and mortars and can artistically toss a hand grenade when the need arises. I can apply ten years of scouting skills to build a fire, render first aid or tie a variety of rope knots. I can survive on ten year old k-rations and drink powdered coffee from a canteen cup and not complain about it.
But what about Ms. Fahs? Can she survive without her morning $7 dollar latte? Did her PHD in Gender Studies equip her to deal with a world where basic living skills are a must? How will she fare in a forum where a naive captive audience of college students no longer exists?
Maybe Ms. Fahs can apply her current inner hate and savagery to lead a band of rogue thugs to scavenge and exploit the weak. Maybe not. Either way, she and her ilk would be among the first I would "take out" in the first days. Her type would either be dangerous to the common good, or a huge drag on everyone else because they are ill equipped to survive in a world without their pampered and liberal court protected lifestyle.
Perhaps we could send the best of those who major in art appreciation, gender studies, or "introspectives on the persecution of minority groups" to a colony located on Catalina Island and leave them to forage for wild grasses and wild goat..and leave alone.
I mean, let's face it; we've got to deal with them in some manner. We'll be far too busy "taking out" career politicians and bureaucrats to have to worry about the educational elite whose preachings were never valid in this world, much less a post-apocalyptic society.
I would be fascinated to find out how our liberal Starbucks guzzling folks would deal with Mexican illegals and Black urban thugs once their gated communities no longer protect them and their wealth no longer provides protection from the societal dregs that would slit their throat just for giggles.
Imagine what life would be like for the wealthy liberal elites, and the educational elites whose world view has never been grounded in reality, who would run head first into the hard realities of a world where survival depends on a stout set of moral principles and a viable work ethic!
Hell, Ms. Fahs might have to drink powdered coffee from a canteen cup and actually need a male to do a little heavy lifting once in a while.
