I read this early this morning on the Urban Survival site blog.


In past eras, there have been more than one catalyst. Therefore, we may see more than one catalyst in this era. I believe, as I stated in the last chapter, that Winter began in 2001 with the events of 9/11. I also believe that we’ll see more than one catalyst.



After a catalyst or series of catalysts, there’s a spark that will ignite the crisis. Something will happen around 2009. That event can be defined as a spark.



What will the event be? I think it will be a devaluation. HS Dent also thinks the same. S&H have five scenarios listed on pages 272-273 of The Fourth Turning. Here’s a few of those theories, and I must say, the first one kinda freaks me out, because this theory was written in 1997.



“A global terrorists group blows up an aircraft and announces it possesses portable nuclear weapons. The United States and Its allies launch a preemptive strike. The terrorists threaten to retaliate against an American city. Congress declares war and authorizes unlimited house to house searches. Opponents charge that the president concocted the emergency for political purposes. A nationwide strike is declared. Foreign capital flees the U.S.” [103]

Then I went to the book link.

Winter Is Coming

This read is facinating. It seems to give a haunting future that is loathsome if viewed in the light of where in history we are.




ʺAmerica feels like it’s Unraveling


All is not lost though...good read.

The book reminded me of some of the ATS threads expressing the idea that "everbody feels something is on the horizon..animals acting strange" ideas.

This is a macro view though which sometimes may miss a micro event.

The one idea that a "spark" or tipping point is needed seems to be another theme.




What will the event be? I think it will be a devaluation. HS Dent
also thinks the same. S&H have five scenarios listed on pages 272‐273 of
The Fourth Turning. Here’s a few of those theories, and I must say, the
first one kinda freaks me out, because this theory was written in 1997.
“A global terrorists group blows up an aircraft and announces it
possesses portable nuclear weapons. The United States and Its allies
launch a preemptive strike. The terrorists threaten to retaliate against an
American city. Congress declares war and authorizes unlimited house‐tohouse
searches. Opponents charge that the president concocted the
emergency for political purposes. A nationwide strike is declared.
Foreign capital flees the U.S.” 103
Yikes. Preemptive strikes. Opponents charge that the president
concocted the emergency. Foreign capital flees U.S. Too close for comfort.
Here’s another: “Beset by a financial crisis, a state lays claim to its
residents’ federal tax monies. Declaring this an act of secession, the
president obtains a federal injunction. The governor refuses to back
down. Federal marshals enforce the court order. Similar tax rebellions
spring up in other states. Treasury bill auctions are suspended. Militia
violence breaks out. Cyberterrorists destroy IRS databases. U.S. Special
Forces are put on alert. Demands issue for a new Constitutional
Convention.”104
103 Strauss and Howe, The Fourth Turning 273. 104 Ibid, 273.

Here’s one more: “An impasse over the federal budget reaches a
stalemate. The president and Congress both refuse to back down,
triggering a near total government shutdown. The president declares
emergency powers. Congress rescinds his authority. Dollar and bond
prices plummet. The president threatens to stop Social Security checks.
Congress refuses to raise the debt ceiling. Default looms. Wall Street
panics.”
Furthermore, the talk about secession by individual states from the
United States is escalating. That talk is coming from the southwest and
the northwest.105
The “impasse over the federal budget reaches a stalemate”
prediction seems unthinkable. However, a few things remind me that this
can easily take place. One is, the recent events in California with the
recall of the Governor and the size of the voter turn out. It was estimated
that 51—70% of the people voted.106
These predictions were written in 1997. Many would’ve been
unthinkable back then. But now?
There are two other predictions on page 273, but I haven’t printed
them here. Needless to say, it will probably be one of those! Because
when all is said and done, the crisis will have manifested itself in a way
that will seem so obvious after it has happened, but no one will have
predicted it. Or, no one will have predicted it in the right combination.
Monday‐morning quarterbacking is so easy. I know, because I trade
everyday, and the next day the talking‐heads always have a reason for
the previous day’s trading (usually wrong).
S&H also talk about “The Great Devaluation

page 46
All in all a educational read.

Thank You to Urban Survival for the link.
