          Cargo culting is not literally just cargo culting. It just means that someone or a group attempts to replicate what they see without fully understanding how and why it works. Those Chinese propaganda videos where they do "tacticool" stiff are an example of cargo culting.

              If you want to argue about the semantics, then we will go with the original meanings, which is a bunch of SEA monkeys worshipping/creating cargos and replicating even the runways in hopes it will bring supplies.

              Slangs exist, moron. It often is loosely or closely related to the original meaning of the term. Cargo culting in this day and age is a slang for someone copying people without having a fundamental understanding. It literally does not mean worshiping cargos like those Malaysians did in the context here.

              Are you autistic? Do you take issue with people saying "someone is an open book" too?
              The defining aspect of cargo culting is to replicate behaviour and actions to get results without understanding it and why it won't work. Like emulating airplanes and airstrips in the hope that cargo showes up. The relevant part isn't in them replicating a cargo airport but replicating the actions they've seen innthbehipess the results are the same.

    Cargo culting is when you do not understand the reason why things are done, you just copy it's external appearance.

    Russian army has provided some of the best examples of this recently with their "Slap ERA into everything".

        ...without understanding why and how such cargo is made and how it appears on your island, yes.
        So they copy the exterior form form of those planes and people who bring the cargo, without understanding how or why the cargo keeps coming.

        Just like russians think that "ERA plate is good protection for tanks, so it must be good protection for cars too. So slap it on our windshield!". Even if those ERA blocks would work, they would only explode in their faces and fill the cabin of the truck with glass sharpnel. But that thought does not occur to them, as they do not understand WHY and how ERA plates work.

              One group uses a safety device as a safety device, but incorrectly, making it ultimately unsafe due to the incorrect placement. The other group makes idols of technology they can’t even comprehend so as to attract more of that technology to their land. If the cargo cult tribes were comparable to Russians as you say they are it would be because they’re using planes as cars as that is an incorrect use of the tech. If the Russians are comparable to the cargo cult tribes like you say they are, it’s because the Russians set up shrines around the safety device in hopes that more show up from the sky. However, Russians understand what the purpose of the ERA plate is and use it to achieve that purpose, albeit incorrectly. See the difference, dumbass?

    My Black person, why are you making an argument about something irrelevant like border enforcement, which has nothing to do with military capabilities? If you're from the U.S., you should already know that the military is not in charge of enforcing border laws. That goes to Border patrol. The military just provide logistical support without directly interfering with civilian law enforcement.

    Learn about U.S. laws before speaking. Migration is a humanitarian crisis. Its not an invasion of an enemy state or anything, which can give the military full authority to destroy with efficiency. You should not speak about shit you don't ecen understand aside from the simplistic idea of "military no kill migrants=weak" even though the Mexican military didn't do shit against the migrants south of their own border. Illegal immigration is not within the jurisdiction of the military unless authorized so by Congress.

    This is not what a cargo cult is. If one country adopting the gear and tactics of another is your barrier of entry, then pretty much every military in the word is a "cargo cult."

      If they adopt without understanding, yes. The most notable example being the Chinese camos.

    "High ready" while advancing. You see this in footage of thirdie army forces attempting to emulate what they think Western armies look like. The troops will charge at a position, rifles shouldered, because that's how they see Western troops appear in movies.

    The concepts of fire and maneuver and situationally awareness are totally lost on them, and you see this tunnel vision staring down a rifle (that they still aren't properly holding).

    Also, the Taliban "SF" in the aftermath of the fall of Afghanistan was a hoot. They were wearing all the gear the US trained stooges were given, but had no idea how to properly set it up/use it. Hence tons of pictures of Taliban dudes with their earpro over the top of their Ops Cores.

      You forgot to mention them only wearing those gear for photoshoots. When ib reality, they don't know how to maintain them and are too scared to break them.

      It feels weird to defend the taliban, but they probably know what fricking ear muffs are for. I don't walk around with my earpro over my ears when im not actively shooting either

        >still kicked out
        How is it kicking out when its a mutual agreement? America hadn't done operations against the Taliban since 2012. The rest of those years have been a decrease in American presence and not much contact between american/taliban forces aside from the occasional air strikes in support of the ANA. Which stopped in 2020

        More like they hid in pakistani religious schools and caves until we decided that policing a shithole like afghanistan was pointless.

        >They slip down if you've been running around instead of kneeling.

        You're misunderstanding my post. They're wearing it on their ankles as a fashion because they saw Americans with it on their ankles. It's not slipping from wear, they intentionally place it on their ankle to look cool.

        Also one of those dudes had pads on his knees AND on his ankles lmao

    People putting IR strobes on their helmets. They see all these tacticool photos and think they just need to copy them 1:1 despite an IR strobe being absolutely useless given that they sure as frick are not going to be working in coordination with air cover, and the fact that it just creates a steady blinking target for anyone else who has nods. A regular IR light can be blinked (in a pattern, even) for ID purposes without adding pointless extra weight to your helmet but nope, gotta look cool for instagram.

    Tacticool shit in general is largely cargo cultish considering it is designed and implemented with an entire logistical support system to back it, one that is entirely absent for a civilian, especially in a SHTF scenario. Ie; hundreds spent on IFAKs, tourniquets, and other medical supplies yet not having any antibiotics to speak of, because obviously if you look really cool the infections wont kill you days later.

      The idea that you might as well just let yourself bleed out, because the wound might get infected, is completely ridiculous

        That isnt what I said. I am saying that people emphasize on step one and know literally nothing past that. They are willing to spend all this money on stopping a bleed but have put zero energy into making sure it doesnt kill them three days later. To me thats almost pointless if you are avoiding a quick death just to suffer through an agonizing one. In general people mimic what the military has and does because surely they are the best at what they do, but fail to realize that without the logistical support structure, a lot of that logic no longer works. People should focus on realistic, self sustainable practices rather than just “cargo culting” with their tier 1 operator wannabe larps.

          Ok, but really, how much medical knowledge can you expect the average person to have? Stopping a bleed is first aid, which is by definition for the layman. Not everybody can be a medic, even if they are serious about prepping. I don't see how having the immediate skills to save your life is being cargo-culty, even if you aren't a medical professional who can take care of any potential complications by yourself. It's just basic preparedness.

            Its cargo culty when you have no ways or means to follow through with it, especially when we live in a time where one can very easily acquire both the knowledge and actual medicine. Get a bad gash on your leg? Pack the wound, tourniquet if its very serious - then what? Irrigate and clean it out with disinfectant, but what happens if a day later you see it swelling? Do you keep antibiotics in a pack or are they not high speed enough?

            This is just one example of the point im trying to make; people try to emulate what they see these operators doing and the gear they are carrying and do not realize that much of it simply doesnt translate. Too much emphasis on high speed gear (sometimes even 100% pointless gear like IR strobes) winning these imagined gunfights and not enough on just surviving every day life.

              They're not high speed enough. You can't carry everything you might at all times on your person, but that doesn't mean that carrying the stuff you would need to stop yourself from dying in the next few minutes is any less valid.

              I don't know man, your point is generally correct, but I don't agree that it applies to medical stuff.

          But then how are you *not* saying that you should simply forgo first aid? Because it sounds like you're saying it's pointless, and therefore a waste of time at best and prolonging suffering at worst

      Not all wounds become infected. As long as you got proper sterilization equipment, antibiotics seem to be a last resort thing.

    I hope you're trolling, but outside of that, some bullshit from some swede that knows nothing about american laws or politics has nothing to say about what we do here. Also, national guards are exempt from the the restrictions of law enforcement. As long as they are not federalized, the states can utilize them in law enforcement roles.

    >that screenshot
    National guards were called because they were threatening to kill people and cause massive damages themselves. The local police couldn't do anything, so the state called up the national guards. When the national guards arrived, the people there quiet down. In cintext to the national guards, the U.S. has an official law that restricts military action within the U.S. regarding civil laws enforcing. The only exception is through the insurrection act or if the states call up the guards without federal directives. Its not an excuse, but rather circumstances created by a law that allows for limited government.

    The US is Mexico's largest trading partner and neighbor. Mexicans standardizing with the US isn't cargo culting since it actually makes sense in their case.
