By the writer of The Darkish Secrets and techniques of Survival and the net course SHTF Survival Boot Camp.

“Balkanization is the fragmentation of a bigger area or state into smaller areas or states, which can be hostile or uncooperative with each other.” (Wikipedia)

Once more the phrase “Balkanization” turning into standard. Really, it has been typically referenced for a number of years, ever since folks understood that occasions that occurred within the Balkans may occur of their neighborhood too in some kind.

Often folks take into consideration that phrase within the phrases talked about above, fragmentation into smaller elements that aren’t essentially pleasant to one another.

And that fragmentation may are available in many kinds that I described and talk about in plenty of articles. Again then, principally folks didn’t consider in it.

Not often is it being mentioned from one different angle, which can be crucial from a survival perspective, and that’s one thing that we’d name the duality of the system.

Duality of the system (within the Balkans)

Sure, we nonetheless have legal guidelines, methods, authorities, infrastructure, courts, and every little thing else that you’ve there in a democratic and purposeful nation. However nothing works the way in which that ought to work, and it by no means did because the struggle ended, for 30 years virtually.

Let’s say you’re dwelling within the Balkans, and for instance, your child will get killed by a drunk driver. You might be certain he’ll keep out of jail if he has a relative in politics or sufficient cash to bribe the choose. You’re consuming worse meals in plenty of circumstances, poisonous, or underneath the conventional requirements as a result of regular requirements are usually not present right here. The EU eliminates low-cost and low-quality meals right here.

In case you are sick severely, you’re lifeless as a result of the medical system works solely on paper, and in case you are not wealthy you’re lifeless. Legal group members are infiltrated into the federal government and ruling events (and vice versa), and there’s no actual distinction between them.

In case you are a journalist who writes about it you’ll disappear. In case you are a typical man who talks too loud about it you’ll lose your job.

In case you “plug” your self into the ruling social gathering and obey, you might need a job with a wage simply massive sufficient to maintain you fed sufficient to not die, and to maintain you in fixed horror, questioning are you gonna lose even that poor job and depart your children hungry?

Now, that duality of the system implies that the common system isn’t working for you, so there’s a “parallel” system to the prevailing one the place you may “swim” and survive.

Meaning you’ll have to develop into a grasp of networking.

All over the place, you should have a connection.

That you must have a person within the hospital who will aid you both as a result of you’ll bribe him or you’ll owe him a favor so you will get issues executed there in case your child will get sick. In any other case, in the event you go along with common channels within the hospital, chances are high much less good.

You might have a person who will promote you meals smuggled “with out tax” from Germany, so it’s higher high quality. You go and keep away from paying taxes to the state. (FFS, for all of your pretending, you really hate the state and system.) You lower your expenses in foreign currency, or gold, and also you do non-public jobs on the verge and even on the opposite aspect of the legislation as a result of this sort of legislation in this sort of nation you don’t take as a legislation.

You’re dwelling in a twin system, the place on one aspect, you’re plugged into a traditional and crooked system, and on the opposite aspect, you’re dwelling and functioning in a parallel system, as a result of that’s the solely method to reside right here.

Duality of the system-it is one other sort of Balkanization.

Now, in the event you acknowledge any of the above “signs” in your society, nicely…welcome to the beginning of Balkanization.


I discussed typically that SHTF doesn’t essentially should imply one sudden and abrupt occasion after we are able to say, “OK, it’s SHTF.”

We would already be in some type of SHTF, and a few spark may solely push us to a bigger scale (or extra severe) SHTF. My time and my expertise within the struggle gave me useful information and views on life, however equally to that, dwelling on this “twin system” for years and a long time additionally gave me treasured information and expertise.

Individuals will discover methods to get issues executed IF they acknowledge what is occurring round them.

Don’t look forward to instances of chaos. I’m positive some type of Balkanisation is there, or some type of want for a parallel system for you.

If you don’t agree with all the federal government choices and the newest societal guidelines and adjustments (and I’m positive you wouldn’t be right here in the event you agree with all that authorities push), then you shouldn’t increase your voice in every single place because you may lose your job, or your small business is perhaps canceled.

That’s not the way in which to withstand now.

How to withstand

Resist by networking and constructing this twin system. Issues will be executed when you’ve got a community and other people.

And sure, fuck the federal government!

This type of Balkanization is one thing that’s slowly turning into seen in elements of the world and locations the place I’d have sworn (a few years in the past) it was unimaginable.

There’s much less and fewer sense for what folks want and increasingly push for what some political choice or energy constructions need. Even when nearly all of people are in opposition to that, it’s nonetheless being pushed by increasingly violent or repressive strategies.

The federal government will push extra issues in your face, issues that you don’t like. The agenda might be increasingly in opposition to your core values, and you’ll really feel increasingly like a stranger in your personal land, the place “previous values” are misplaced.

You’ll have the selection both to obey or to be “canceled,” in all places from getting your account in social media networks shut right down to the purpose of taking your children from you as a result of you’re a “terrorist.”

Balkanization doesn’t like free thinkers, so don’t seem like a free thinker who fights the fights that can not be received. Select your fights and use a twin system.

The twin system is coming if it’s not already there.

Because of this, we’re going to see Balkanization –  sure, within the phrases described within the first sentences of this text. However earlier than that fragmentation and hostility, we’re going to see a type of Balkanization consisting of individuals dwelling on this “twin system.”

And bear in mind – probably the most correct prepper definitions is “the one that is at all times a few steps forward of others,” so take into consideration this earlier than many of the different folks and put together. Arrange your networks now.

What are your ideas?

Do you foresee this sort of Balkanization taking place the place you’re? Are you already seeing proof of a twin system the place you reside? Do you could have some examples you may share of such a system?

Let’s talk about it within the feedback.

About Selco:

Selco survived the Balkan struggle of the 90s in a metropolis underneath siege, with out electrical energy, operating water, or meals distribution. 

In his on-line works, he offers an inside view of the fact of survival underneath the harshest circumstances. He evaluations what works and what doesn’t, tells you the arduous classes he realized, and shares how he prepares at the moment.

He by no means stopped studying about survival and preparedness because the struggle. No matter what occurs, chances are high you’ll by no means expertise excessive conditions as Selco did. However you could have the possibility to be taught from him and the way he confronted dying for months.

Actual survival isn’t romantic or idealistic. It’s brutal, arduous, and unfair. Let Selco take you into that world.
