I am a new member here as well. I've been lurking around ATS for quite a while and finally decided to join in!
I have to agree with you on at least most of your points, and there are even more goings-on than that. Earthquakes, political turmoil (not just US),
energy crisis, food shortages, weather manipulation, the list goes on and on.
I am on the low end of the economic ladder, and from my perspective, there is no climbing it until all of this comes to a head. Most civilizations
have had some sort of "end of days" theory. The scary thing is that they line up on most of the strongest points, as well as their timelines. The
Hopi say that "whoever dropped the gourd of ashes will have the gourd dropped on them". The Bible mentions earthquakes, famine, wars and rumors of
wars. And of course we all know what the Mayans believed...
My point is this...
Maybe we cannot KNOW when, where, or what, but the past is our greatest teacher. There have been many wise men, and many seers. They were sending a
warning to us, and we need to pay attention and prepare.
