“The Void. We all feel it, to varying degrees. And we all try to fill it in different ways. In this episode of Filling the Void, a collaboration between Vic Berger and VICE News, we take a look at the phenomenon of prepping – how we do it and why we do it.”

There’s nothing inherently wrong with having extra rations and supplies…There’s nothing wrong with safe houses and shelters…

The complicated thing about this…is that I agree with the practicality, of having these things in the event of a social collapse…

…What’s featured here, however…is the parasitic, dark side of preparation culture…the one out to make a buck off of it, or push a larger social agenda through fear.

Truth be told…if there is a cataclysmic devastation dealt to this planet…you may only be buying yourself an extra few years…months…weeks…days…

If you cannot survive outside of your shelter [or even inside of it] anymore…you’re as dead as everybody else.

Few people are going to be able to buy and collect everything they need to survive, in the event this planet becomes hostile to life.

In addition…if we’re dealing with radiation poisoning and terminal conditions…it’s going to be an awful existence…You may not even make it through that “year supply” of emergency food.

The Dark Side of Science: The Bobo Doll Experiment 1963 (Short Documentary)…

“The Bobo doll experiment is the name for a series of experiments performed by psychologist Albert Bandura to test his social learning theory.

Between 1961 and 1963, he studied the behaviour of children after they watched an adult model act aggressively towards a Bobo the clown doll.

The most famous version of the experiment measured the children’s behaviour after seeing an adult model rewarded, punished, or experience no consequence for physically attacking the Bobo doll.

The results of the experiment would be used as the justification of the anti video game movement of the 1980 and 1990s.

The study was considered controversial but not as bad as the Baby Albert study.”

There’s something inherently strange, about taking a well known toy that was created for aggressive and violent play [the Bobo doll], and expecting that a child’s interaction with it would be anything other than aggressive and violent.

Of course they’re going to punch, kick and shove around the doll…That’s explicitly what it was made for, and how it was marketed.

As I recall it…this toy was an acceptable method, of letting out your frustrations and hyper energy…That’s the point behind it’s very existence.

“On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to legendary journalist and filmmaker John Pilger on the takeover of the Taliban in Afghanistan. He calls the US military a killing machine and discusses why the Afghanistan War must be viewed through the lens of Western imperialism, the scale of civilian casualties and destruction of Afghanistan by NATO countries, how the US created today’s situation by supporting Afghan jihadist forces against the Soviet Union throughout the Cold War, the social progress and progressive reform lost to history with the fall of the Soviet-backed PDPA government in Afghanistan and much more! John Pilger also discusses the anniversary of the Pinochet coup in Chile and the trial of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange”
