Corrupt law enforcement is often at the heart of violent countries and cities, including Venezuela, Mexico, and Russia. In Venezuela:
“It’s alarming how many policemen are involved in kidnapping, extortion, car robberies, and drug trafficking,” Ortega said.
Some 277 public officials are being investigated for kidnapping alone, the ministry said in an accompanying report.
The socialist administration has a track record of burying bad news. In 2003, when the crime and murder rate started spiking, the government shut down the police media-relations office, which provided regular data.
One does not want to contend with the violence of corrupt law enforcement on top of the violence of the criminal class. It is easiest to simply avoid the hotbeds of violent crime.
Dangerous Child Training Focuses on Preventing and Avoiding Violence
Human nature and genetic diversity guarantee that violence will occur — more frequently in some locales than in others. Dangerous Children may be better prepared to deal with violent offenders than most persons, but they have better things to do with their time. Such as laying the foundations for an abundant and expansive human future, and helping to build the next level.
And it naturally follows that in order to help achieve those things, Dangerous Children will need to avoid needless distractions and unnecessary casualties. This is why Dangerous Children are taught how to form Dangerous (and Resilient) Communities, and Dangerous (and Anti-Fragile) City-States.
The parallel nature of Dangerous Communities and City-States becomes apparent in the many situations where they grow from the same ground where pre-existing conventional communities and cities already exist. In such cases, parallel and “shadow” systems of organisation will allow Dangerous Children to build and implement human and technological systems that make communities and cities more resilient and anti-fragile — while providing an excellent springboard onto a higher level of functioning when the time is right.
Old systems of governance will often be shed like dead snake-skin when it is time for the vital core to move upward into a more expansive and abundant future. In other cases, where Dangerous Communities and Dangerous City-States grew up on original foundations, the upward expansion is greatly simplified.
Homicidal Cities and Nations Should be Isolated as Well as Possible
As we discussed in an earlier article, it is possible to create highly detailed maps of frequent foci of violence, and to use those maps for safer navigation of the human landscape. Safe zones of residence and passage would need to be worked out, with the information made available to all travelers and longer-term residents.
In North America, it is well known that particular cities and particular neighborhoods within those cities present the greatest risk to both outsiders and residents. The same is true in the rest of the Anglosphere, Europe, and in most any developed nation.
Dangerous Children develop situational awareness as second nature, whether traveling abroad or moving about more familiar territory. They do not tend to accidentally stray in the path of danger, as a rule. But violent and homicidal people do not always stay within a fixed territory, nor do they announce their travel plans or their presence to more peace-loving people among whom they travel. And so when one’s path crosses the path of violent and homicidal people by happenstance, it is best if one is prepared to deal with such situations as thoroughly as possible. Such training is best commenced early, and one should stay in practise.
Hope for the best. Prepare for the worst. It is never too late or too early to have a Dangerous Childhood.
