Ok, here's the thing... you have totally plagiarized this entire post including stats that were made in the original post's comments! It's one thing to be on the "same page" but it's another thing to violate intellectual "honesty" by passing this post off as your own... don't believe me?

Here is the actual article posted by Jack Spirko...

If you are attempting to earn money on this post you should think twice as this is tantamount to stealing.jack spirko gun control.jpg

Fractured relationships, most people only seem to care during tragedy. The little things are missing, strangers saying hello to each other, family time without electronics. Enjoying the simple things in life, teaching young people to use their minds and hands to learn. Look how many people so preoccupied on their phones with headphones on.

Yup. Put me off grid with the fam. I can guarantee sanity.

I hear you there!

This post contains a direct word for word copy and paste from a facebook post by Jack Spirko of The Survival Podcast. That is blatant plagiarism.

If you are going to copy someone else's words, you should put an attribution into the post and link back to their site. Better is to also add your commentary.

This is a direct copy and paste from a post by Jack Spirko over at

Can you perhaps edit your post to give proper attribution?

If you are going to use someone else's words you need to give credit and a source. Especially if you are trying to earn money from something you didn't do. That is extremely dishonest

As others have shown, this is straight up plagiarized content. Give credit or take it down.
