Orientation

Be Prepared, Not Afraid

1. Objective: Surviving Anarchy Academy is dedicated to presenting a comprehensive set of courses that prepares individuals and mutual assistance groups (MAG) with the knowledge and skills required to greatly enhance their chances to endure a state of absolute anarchy and prosper afterward.

2. Scope: Surviving Anarchy courses address a state of absolute anarchy only. We do not include specific information on any lesser scenario, such as a localized geographical disaster area, where government resources and unaffected Americans can come to the rescue. Under a state of absolute anarchy, there will be NO unaffected geographical areas or OTHER Americans to come to the rescue. You will be on their own.

3. Courses Structure: Courses are developed with easy-to-learn modules, followed by an end-of-course self-evaluation. Courses are self-paced and self-evaluated. Each course is divided into easy-to-learn modules. A Progress Self-Evaluation is presented at the end of each course to help you determine subject matter areas that you may need to review prior to continuing to the next course.

4. Facts vs. Opinion: The information throughout each course is based principally on logical analyses of facts, but must also include predictions by our subject matter experts. For example, it is a fact that, if trucks fail to deliver food to cities (for any reason), people living in cities will run out of food within a few days. It is logical, therefore, to predict that those who live in cities will begin to starve and depart, en masse, to surrounding suburbs, then to outlying areas, deeper and deeper into the countryside in search of food, water, and shelter. It is also logical to assume that bad guys with guns will create havoc for others—killing, raping, and pillaging at will, and that militias will emerge to deal with the bad-guys.

5. Course Access Time: Unless otherwise stated, you have 90 days from the date of registration to complete a course.

6. General Study Method: Courses are self-paced and self-evaluated. Using these learning steps, students set their own study schedules independently of other students:

a. Initial Study Action: Read and absorb course written subject matter materials

b. Supplemental Research: Perform additional research through embedded links to external Internet supplemental resources

c. Self-Evaluate: Verify level of learning through end-of-course self-evaluations

d. Reinforce Learning: Review subject matter where the self-evaluation indicates a need

Note: Students may review any or all modules during the allotted enrollment time for the course, which is normally 90 days.

7. Steps to Learning: To maximize your learning experience, employ the following course study steps:

A. Step 1: Review the introduction module until you thoroughly understand the course’s purpose. Focusing on the introduction, reinforces you understanding of the main prepper/surviving concepts, a necessity for gaining insight into the Survivalist Big Picture.

B. Step 2: Study the course remaining module’s text and review the information provided by the weblinks until you are satisfied that you have mastered the course’s contents.

C. Step 3: When you are satisfied that you have absorbed the study materials, complete the end of course self-evaluation. Based on the results of the self-evaluation, review the modules, as necessary, to reinforce your knowledge of the study materials.

D. Step 4: Advance to the next course.

8. Internet Resources: Internet links, external to Surviving Anarchy Academy, are embedded in many courses to expand students’ learning experience. Internet resources may contain text, images, and/or video presentations that assist students to better understand the subject matter.

9. Enrollment Fees: While there is no registration fee to access free materials, each course has a enrollment fee that varies with the depth and extent of information included in each individual courses.

10. Scope of Training: Surviving Anarchy Academy courses address a state of absolute anarchy only. We do not consider disasters that take place in limited geographical areas where government resources and unaffected Americans in other regions are able to come to the rescue. Under a state of absolute anarchy, there is NO government and there are NO unaffected Americans to come to the rescue.

11. Instructional Materials Development

A. Logical Analysis and Realistic Conclusions: Surviving Anarchy’s primary goal is to present students with rational, realistic conclusions on what to expect when confronted with a state of absolute anarchy. Because America has never experienced anarchy, all theories about what will occur immediately preceding, during, and after a societal collapse into anarchy must be scrutinized for validity to ensure as high a degree of accuracy as possible. Theories based on conjecture and a sense of what might happen (simply guessing) cannot be relied on and is dangerous to your potential to survive a state of anarchy. To ensure our students receive valid, dependable information, Surviving Anarchy instructors develop courses based on well analyzed facts using the following two primary guidelines:

Instructors’ studies and analyses of historical economic, political, and societal failures in other parts of the world, including their causes and their effects on the inhabitants

Instructors’ personal survival training and experiences

12. Instructors’ Education and Experience: Surviving Anarchy instructors possess a broad spectrum of survival education and experiences directly relate to enduring under a state of anarchy, including the following:

Personal experience of living a homestead-survival lifestyle with very little external resources

Living among the people of poverty-stricken third-world nations in Africa, Central America, South America, Indonesia, and Southeast Asia, where most of the citizens daily existence is on the edge of survival

Combat experiences in conventional and unconventional (guerrilla) warfare environments

Law enforcement experience

National security experience at federal agency policy-making level

Personal studies of the effects on citizens in countries where anarchy has occurred, such as Argentina and Somalia, and the effects on citizens in countries with democratic societies that converted to dictatorships, such as Cuba, South Vietnam, and Venezuela

Extended outdoor survival training under harsh winter, summer, desert, mountain, and jungle environments.

14. Course Descriptions

Course 1: Attaining a Prepper Mindset. This course furnishes students with factual information that prepares them with a predetermined mental stance, disposition toward, and response to surviving a state of absolute anarchy.

Course 2: Survival Critical Thinking Skills. This course focuses on detailed analysis and critical thinking required to maximize the chances to survive a post-apocalyptic world.

Course 3: Prepper Fundamentals. This course focuses on the survival needs of the individual for enduring the end of the world as we know it. Here we discuss the elemental issues facing all preppers, a broad overview of human survival needs that are based on the Rule of Three, consider Bug Out Bag (BOB) and Get Home Bag (GHB) requirements, and a set of practical exercises that addresses the skillset needed to enhance students’ chances to survive the die-off and prosper afterward.

Course 4: Prepper Communications: This course presents technical information on very high frequency (VHF), ultrahigh frequency (UHF), and high frequency (HF) radio communication systems required to enhance your chances to survive the die-off when common carrier commercial services become disrupted. Here you will learn how to use the short-range VHF and UHF radios for local communications in and around your bug out location (BOL) and within the local community surrounding your BOL. This course also includes how to use long-range HF radio communications to talk to others in surrounding states, across America, and internationally.

Course 5: MAG Organization. This course delves into the details critical to establishing a mutual assistance group (MAG) for the common security of all members. Here we focus on advantages of being in a viable MAG, pros and bugging in vs. bugging out, guidance and considerations for selecting a bug out location (BOL) and developing MAG functions and responsibilities.

Course 6: BOL Development. This course analyzes details critical to selecting, establishing, and operating within a viable BOL with focus on the operational aspects of MAG functions and responsibilities.

Course 7: Survival Foods and Annual Food Production Cycle. Course 8 provides detailed information on survival foods storage needs and long-term food production requirements.

Course 8: Practical Exercises. This course presents 50 practical exercises that help students gain expertise in building shelters, processing water, digging wells, growing food, preserving and storing food, animal husbandry, butchering animals, processing dairy products, harvesting wildlife, administering first aid, off-grid power sources, constructing gasifiers, producing biodiesel fuel, making soap and detergent, making candles, and making a solar water heaters.

Course 9: BOL Defenses. This course focuses on the various means of protecting BOL perimeters, including physical barriers and immediate action drills to counter threats.

Course 10: External Security and Intelligence Gathering. This course presents information on maintaining prepping activities secrecy, long range patrolling, gathering intelligence during and after the die-off.

Course 11: Militia Organization. This course is based on U.S. Army Special Forces guerrilla unit organization with focus on recruiting developing local citizens into a well-regulated militia to resist tyranny, eleminate bad guys, protect critical facilities, maintain civil order, and counter potential invasion by foreign enemies.

Course 12: Militia Operations. This course is based on basic guerrilla warfare operations with focus on general operational strategies and tactical operations, including patrolling, raids, ambushes, camouflage, and concealment.

Course 13: Wilderness Survival. This course serves primarily as a supplement to the courses on militia organization and militia operations for those who may participate in extended security patrols, raids, and ambushes, or those who could find themselves caught unintendedly in any circumstance that required them to survive in the wilderness. It also provides useful information to those who plan to bugout to a wilderness area to survive until after the die-off has run its course.

Note: As explained in Categories 1 and 2, bugging out to a wilderness area may not be your best choice for survival.

Warning: Surviving Anarchy Academy strongly advises against bugging out to the wilderness to wait for the die-off to complete its course. The introduction to this course discusses several major negative issues with that strategy.

Course 14: Ethical and Moral Principles. This course touches on the obligation to maintain Judeo-Christian moral and ethical principles during and after the die-off and discusses how to prepare to assist refugees to survive and becoming self-reliant without jeopardizing your own survivability.

Course 15: Post Die-Off Recovery. This course analyzes logical assumptions about the expected conditions after the die-off has run its course and gives insight into actions necessary to reestablish civil order, begin cooperative efforts to create an annual food production and preservation cycle, and establish communications with other surviving communities.

Course 16: Potential for Societal Collapse. This course analyzes manmade and natural events that could trigger a societal collapse resulting in a state of absolute anarchy.
