So, there are all sorts of things coming through right now. Zero Hedge has various scenarios, mostly gloomy and here is the case for imminent collapse.
These days everyone has his pet theory and even the most crazy might have elements of truth to them – this from comments at Zero Hedge:
The ugly fact is that the higher you go, all roads lead to luciferianism.
Then there is the survivalist mentality and I’ve been looking at a few of these sites. Here’s a typical comment:
Certainly, small communities that work together will survive. People who depend on banks, will be doomed. People who depend on a government handout, will probably die. Those that go out of their way to fight back, will also die.
I’m betting survivability of what is coming will come down to a combination of being virtually invisible, off the grid( which would collapse anyway,) and being able to survive on the fruits of one’s own labor. Survival of the fittest.
Although you can’t prepare for each and every possible scenario, you can certainly prepare for the most obvious ones.
We’re mired in lies. Look at the way the climate figures have been creatively interpreted to produce global warming. So what we’re getting as our raw data to work on is in fact lies.
The sceptical view:
What will happen is already happening, so we can all see it live and in person. When systems collapse, they will be taken over by the socialist authorities. If food systems stop, farms and grain stores will be nationalized and resources handed out via Fema or other agencies. If energy flows stop they will be rationed. Call that your large group if you like.
Society will adapt without going feral. There will be winners and losers, but after the dust settles a better, more fair system will arise. Maybe we’ll even try capitalism for the first time.
Someone mentioned that this is managed austerity, poverty etc. to make profits for the few. At ground level, I phoned a builder I know to see if he’d take on a guy I know looking for work and he said he was laying off two of his four guys this week, similar with other builders he knows, the bottom now having fallen out.
Yet if you look at Jobsite, Total, Monster, that sort of site, there’s work all over the place, most of it telesales. We know of the Euro situation, Spain etc. Christians are getting ready for the big one. Many in work now are knackered as to keep a job, you give 110% these days and comply with everything, often commuting long distances.
Rather than having to choose from these, rather they might all be part of what’s going on. All the things I’ve blogged about – Them, the march to serfdom – all part of it but not the whole story. Someone said that what is happening is that imbalance is being artificially maintained at this time to get various arrangements and profits into place then, once it’s all done, it’s allowed to go back to balance but the people who were becoming a threat – the middle class on credit – are no longer middle class but serfs again.
Meanwhile, the government obfuscates:
… and Asian sex gangs groom white girls, horrific things are happening within families, suiciding is increasing with the late middle-aged male, women think everything’s fine because they have jobs and can put up with crap better than men can. Politicians and journos are really the lowest form of human life at this time and all of that sort of thing.
Unusual weather has been doing the rounds these past few years. If I think it’s induced, I have no way to prove that. Democracy is now a joke. Some say all-in depression is on the way and inevitable because the whole system has for some time now been based on fresh air and promises.
Rossa sends this guy’s post:
Agenda 21 calls for migration of the human living experience into green centers, urban zones where everything okay and ICLEI. Conforming to the new commandments of the green bible, driven by defeating the new adversary; carbon emissions, this movement will explode the concept of the city itself. Let’s take St. Louis for example. It’s population is 319,000 + change. Imagine it with 1 million people. Thinks its insane? Think again. By moving the population into massive, vertical structures, cities will be able to double and even triple their population.
Fanciful? Councils are moving people out of homes right now and into shared accommodation where council officers “mix and match” by themselves who lives with whom, who is compatible etc., all under the compassionate eye of Common Purpose. Currently on the list are any in more than one bedroom.
We’ve seen that all fields, e.g. engineering, education, have been cheapened and the newly qualified are preferred to the properly qualified and experienced because they’re less able to call-out what is going down.
People are becoming infantilized.
Work Programmes are getting people into temporary work which doesn’t last. Multinationals farm human life out to the highest bidder. Porn is out of control for any age. We’re entering the days of the Lord of the Flies, when the painted and mutilated, the tribal, rule [see pic], where youth are dumbed down, where everyone’s dumbed down and no one has any direction and an almost non-existent moral compass. Every day a new fatherless family is created and the mother seems perfectly happy on benefits – who cares about the kid?
Any good news? Sporadic acts of kindness, blogs which ignore it all and just show nice things, such as Mark’s, can take our minds off it for some time, funny things which happen everyday, the appearance of normality to many people oblivious to any troubles. I envy them because they’ll go down, just as we will, only they’ll be far happier than us when they do.
It’s all a jigsaw. With that in mind, I go off for an interview today. LOL. Triumph of hope over experience.
