What about medical and dental check-ups and fixes before things get worse?

As noted previously, you as an individual likely cannot affect very damned much “on a national basis”.

What you can do is to consider the current situation through the lenses of two mutually-supporting concepts:

  1. Concentric circles, and
  2. Local local local.

Let’s talk a little today about concentric circles.

Imagine you are the centerpoint of a series of circles.

The first one has a radius of the length of your arms.

The next one has a radius of 7 yards – the distance usually cited for typical handgun fights.

Somewhat arbitrarily, let’s make the next radius 27 yards, or 25 meters; this is the distance used to set your rifle’s initial zero.

100 yards (or 100 meters, for those who think metrically) will be the next.

300 yards (meters) the next.

And 800 yards (meters) the final.

Today’s exercise is for you to

  1. assess the threats (if any) to you and yours within each of those radii; and
  2. assess your current ability to address each of those threats.

No one is coming to save you.

And bad people are coming to rob, hurt, and possibly kill you.

Welcome to the new reality.
