The police shootings in Dallas are textbook 4GW tactics and highlight the reality of the fragile society we live in. In case anyone doesn’t understand 4GW, it is low tech warfare designed to remove legitimacy from a government in the eyes of the people. Attacking the police is a chief way of accomplishing this goal as they are necessary to keep civil order. Don’t kid yourself either, even the simplest of societies have always had some sort of policing force to keep order and protect the citizens. You may love the police in America today or hate them, but one thing is for sure they are not going away. That doesn’t mean they can’t and shouldn't be reformed and improved.
What isn’t fun is living in a 4GW world which is an obvious reality in the United States of America today. I believe things will get much worse before they get better too, and it will be awful to watch and dangerous as well. One of the best ways to help those around you outside of knowing some basic self-defense is keeping a level head as society frays apart around you. Most of your friends and family will be in a state of near panic as events like these continue on the news cycle, not because they are cop-lovers, or love the government, but because they subconsciously know that civil order is under attack.
If you find yourself becoming extremely angry and wanting to lash out at everyone around you, or find some specific group or person who is suddenly the ultimate evil in at the moment, step back for a bit. Remember that we are living in dark times and there are plenty of evil people around. Cherish the good around you, especially your family and friends. Endeavor to protect them and plan for difficult times, but do not lose hope, wish for violence for the sake of violence, or lose your cool because of the news. Be the rock that people can depend upon in hard times. Be the foundation of a future society which can be better than the one we are currently living in.
