Everything you own is contained in an electronic device. Any money you have is in a bank debit system. All information about your personal life is exposed.

What will happen when there is a complete shut down of the infrastructure?

Just take one instance of a banking institution and a scenario that could happen any day at any time.

Forget losing power, if a bank decides to shut it's doors and disables all forms of debit and credit systems how will you get any money?

We have become so dependent on cashless transactions; auto pay, auto debit, email transactions.

We are making a huge mistake putting all of our trust in the banking industry. We have been given many warnings and yet we continue to go down the same path; our faith in the monetary system is going to be the catalyst for a complete breakdown of society worldwide.

We think those poor people that have nothing are so sad, guess what? They are better prepared to deal with life that is not bound to the current monetary system. I envy them. They know how to survive with bare necessities, do you, will you know what to do?

Most of you can not even tie your shoes without SARI helping you. We have seen what life is like during disruptions due to weather, imagine a calamity that is worldwide and the result of a conspiracy to control an entire population.

We have been manipulated and put in exactly the position they want us to be in, that they have concocted and cajoled, to be completely reliant on all forms of electronic devices.

You think there are not weapons in their arsenal worldwide that can render us all helpless? Think again.

This is not a doomsday doom porn scenario concocted by me, it is a verifiable fact and one that all of you know to be true.

Do not ask me to provide links or headlines or troll me with nonsense, just take a moment to look around your every day life routines and see for yourself what I am saying.

Not that it will matter, but if I were all of you I would make damn sure I have actual cash on hand. Why won't it matter? Do some thinking about that, too!

Not me, I only deal in cash.

I dont trust banks, or plastic money.

Anyone who does is an idiot.

No wonder there's a crackdown on ppl and communities who realize this vulnerability, living off the grid!

The ultimate false flag, everyone's life savings vanished and the another false flag to our folks on lockdown (or I'm concentration camps)

And it all likely blamed on terror despite the war on it for decades I'm the making!

Trust is all we got. Its misplaced, too. During the greek 'bailout', people lined up at atms to get a bit of money, all they were allowed, when the machines were turned on.

Trust you can the banks have all the gold in their basement vaults. We get the pixels, the statements, the paper notes.

Turn those machines off and it all evaporates, poof!

How long the debt overburden doesn't come crashing down is purely a measure of their fancy.

That sounds good...but....
Your employer, your grocery, your utility companies, etc, etc, etc, all use electronic banking. They will be shut down.
you're just as screwed as the rest of us if the system fails.

In the US we are almost at $19 TRILLION in debt - that doesn't include any personal debt you may have incurred.

Federal expenditure in 2015 alone was $218 BILLION, JUST on the interest.

I've been prepping since before it was cool, however not by hoarding stuff like guns or survival gear. I hoard knowledge. Know how to grow basic food crops. Know how to build shelter, temporary and permanent. Know how to preserve food. Etc,etc... If SHTF you most likely are gonna be separated from your hoard pretty quickly so keep it in your head. True preparedness will prevent a lot of potential panicking and make you a valuable asset to those around you.

if there's a shutdown of "infrastructure" the last thing you'll be worrying about is your monies in the bank.

i'm not the slightest bit concerned about this happening anytime soon.

keep calm and game on!

I know exactly what your talking about, I believe a user on this site posted an article about how the banking system in some parts of Australia glitched out for a day or two. In short A lot of people were unprepared to deal with the not being able to access online deposits.

Lesson always have cash available in case of emergencies.

I'll see if I can find the article.

ETA

Bank of melbourne shutdown

So true, and I'm in the same boat with you. Sure, I've got a couple of months worth of food (thank you, Costco package sizes), a couple winter's worth of firewood (thank you, Emerald Ash Borers), etc., but never thought it was really worth having more than a brief hunkering down's worth of anything for exactly the reasons you state. As for your last sentence, regarding preventing panicking, besides "how-to" knowledge and an "engineering" mind (figure out how to make things work whether you 'already knew' or not), I've always figured my biggest "SHTF" asset is a ludicrously high non-panic threshold - part of which is based on the confidence that you'll 'figure it out, whatever "it" may be.
