You do know you're on a conspiracy theory site, yes?
Seriously, I don't see that many going all paranoid. I see more people debunking the NWO scenario and concentration camps idea more than those
America has a history.
And right now, America really is in serious economic trouble. And with such a high population, this is why there are now so many on here talking about
survival and what to do when the SHTF.
It is becoming more likely that events will occur over the next year or two to warrant such concern.
We are already seeing protests in several European nations, and this is before any of us REALLY feel the financial crisis affecting our lives.
Governments are trying to gradually ease us into economic decline, rather than allowing it to happen so suddenly, causing even more chaos and anger.
This is why they bailed out so many corporations that actually have no market left. There is no reason to support all three major car manufacturers in
the US, other than to prevent the massive unemployment it would create if any of them were allowed to collapse. The money is just buying the
The US specifically is in a bad way because they are not reporting the truth to their public, and because the public there have been less inclined to
protest over anything.
This has built up over the last 8 years.
California and NY are in serious trouble right now.
If people do protest, the state authorities and government in general do not allow peaceful progress and venting of frustration. The American Policing
tactic in recent years has been to "control and conquer", which inevitably leads to confrontation where there otherwise would be none or little.
Once this happens, there is further perceived injustice against the people, which causes more protests. And so on and so on.
This will come about as tax is increased, wages are frozen, unemployment rockets, an unstable oil market increases and lowers prices from day to day,
state welfare funds are increasingly limited...
You don't need to be an economist to know that there is a lot more to come.
Banks are still not lending, despite being given tax payers money.
Smaller businesses which rely on those funds are having to lay people off.
Less tax is going to state funds while the number of those needing it increases.
There is still no market for new vehicles. What are the big three car manufacturers going to do in a couple of months when their bail out money dries
They will be forced to lay off staff.
You don't need to be an economist to know that all of this is now inevitable.
What happens after this is open to the public.
If they protest in massive numbers, as is likely as seen in Europe again and again, it is very likely to spin out of control.
Can you imagine what would have happened in Greece if the population had been armed when they rioted in the streets?
Even if they don't protest, crime rates will soar, unemployment will continue, taxes will rise, standards of living will fall, opportunities for
youth will vanish, local funding for the support of infrastructure is already gone.
Those planning to protect themselves, move to a safer area out of the cities, planning ways to survive without state help, they are all just being
sensible and seeing things for how they might be in a few months to a year.
And on the specific subject of the FEMA camps.
They do exist. It is a practical measure to have these sites which can assist in almost any large emergency.
Evac of citizens.
Treatment of citizens in an outbreak.
Detention of dissidents in unrest.
Operations base in an emergency.
Store area during any disaster...
There are many uses for these multipurpose sites.
And in a nation where the prison population is already at maximum, these places will be used to hold those detained in any massive civil unrest
It all seems quite logical to me.
I'm in the UK. I wouldn't say I'm worried, we have protests every other week about one thing or another. They rarely become violent.
I have a stable job, no solid expenses to speak of, life is OK.
But I am paying attention, especially to what happens in America.
