It's weird how people are so afraid to speak of it, what is that all about!?
My idea is that it is simply about is FEAR in general. And those people whom are in denial or trying to escape their fear will wear it like a cloth
It's a psychological defense mechanism: when we don't know the outcome of something or expect a negative outcome we go in denail.
The second issue is most people hang on materialism, they THINK the World we live in is REAL and they are too afraid of losing something.
When more and more people will 'get' the greater picture and will see that we, individually or even globally, are not even a drop in an ocean seen on a level of the Universe, then there will be no more reason to be afraid, for anything!!

Does anyone know one or more individuals that lived during the Great Depression that has had anything to say about this? Something comparative might help to shed light on things. What is different with people in contrast to other trying times? I haven't lived long enough myself to have extensive experience, not in this life anyway.

I live a very simple life in a little ol' apartment, but I'm in a town that surrounds me with miles of very expensive homes. It's commonplace here for every high school grad to receive the latest and most expensive cars as well as boob jobs for a graduation gift.
Everyone here walks around smiling while connected to the latest technology gadgets, spending money like it grows on trees. It's like living in the town of Stepford wives or something because everything seems to be so... perfect.
What I'm not sure of is ~ are these people disconnected because things are going so well for them and they are not able to 'feel' things... or is it that some of us get that feeling of 'something wicked this way comes' simply because we are in more of a hardship and our struggles make us assume the worst?

From Hopi Prophecy that relates to the OP's observation:
"Many will appear to have lost their souls in these final days. So intense will the nature of the changes be that those who are weak in spiritual awareness will go insane, for we are nothing without spirit. They will disappear, for they are just hollow vessels for any thing to use. Life will be so bad in the cities that many will choose to leave this plane. Some in whole groups.
"Only those who return to the values of the old ways will be able to find peace of mind. For in the Earth we shall find relief from the madness that will be all around us. It will be a very hard time for women with children for they will be shunned, and many of the children in these times will be unnatural. Some being from the Stars some from past worlds, some will even be created by man in an unnatural manner and will be souless. Many of people in this time will be empty in Spirit they will have Sampacu. No life force in their eyes.
"As we get close to the time of arrival the Purifier there will be those who walk as ghosts through the cities, through canyons they will have constructed in their man made mountains. Those that walk through these places will be very heavy in their walk, it will appear almost painful as they take each step for they will be disconnected from their spirit and the Earth.[/ex]
Could the underground bases and cities under Denver airport be what they are describing?

It's beginning to sound like "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"!
It's a loss of conscious awareness - their reality tunnels have shrunk right down to the point that they physically have blinders on.
When Bush Cheney and crew started talking about controlling history, after the global 911 psy-op, and you could see how they were using context and framing to hijack the psyche, to evoke the fight or flight response and harden the will within a pure black and white framework - all based on a lie and a fake reality - I knew there would be a terrible impact from all of that.
Looks like the Obama feel good solution has been too little too late, the damage was done, brain damage via a type of mass hypnotic conditioning, but intuitively, everyone KNOWS, so the incongruity has generated a mass cognitive dissonance.
If there were a devil, he'd be pleased with the results.
But the good will triumph, I'm convinced of that, and can see evidence of it all the time.

Whatever is going to happen is getting very close. It feels like when you were a kid and a big event was happening the next morning. When you go to bed the night before it's so close you have trouble falling asleep. Thats what it feels like to me.
It's also gotten to be much more intense. I have basically quit smoking weed because it makes me tap into that at such a deep level that it becomes overwhelming. This after smoking every day for three or four years.
