I found this a while back and I am not sure if it has been posted here yet.
This article will explain it better than I could ever be able to.
(NaturalNews) A lot of people believe the world as we know it is going to end on December 23, 2012. Nonsense, I say. The far more honest answer is
that the end of the world as we know it has already begun. And it doesn't mean the end of the world; it means the closing of one era and the birth of
a new one. It is a transition between the ages. This particular transition, however, promises to be the most tumultuous and costly transition
humankind has ever seen. Learn more: www.naturalnews.com...
A synopsis of the 14 signs.
#1 - Tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis.
#2 - The silence of the bees.
#3 - The failure of nuclear science.
#4 - The vicious pursuit of Wikileaks.
#5 - The rise of the medical police state.
#6 - The increasing frequency of food shortages and crop failures.
#7 - The runaway destruction of the world by energy companies.
#8 - The continued GMO contamination of our planet.
#9 - The tyranny and criminal crackdowns targeting real food (raw milk).
#10 - The escalation of the counterfeiting of the money supply.
#11 - The plummeting intelligence of the masses.
#12 - The complete and utter fabrication of the mainstream news.
#13 - The ongoing pharmaceutical pollution of our world.
#14 - The radioactive contamination of the global food supply.
I particularly like #11,very much.
As a middle age man who has traveled the world since I was but a lad,I have observed most of these signs being implemented over time.
Those who are responsible for of it have been in all positions of power and authority for many years in all forms of society.
This was all discussed and decided and implemented by students around the world in the tumultuous period of the 1960's.
Look at the ages of those in control today all aspects of society and figure out where they were in the 1960's period.
If you are a young member and believe that society will be better when you are my age I say that will never happen.
Your children and their children will not enjoy the luxuries you have today.
There is no reason spending time discussing what to take and put in your "Bugout Bag".
You should have left a long time ago.
This is way past the beginning of the collapse of the global society.
Get use to it and except it.
There is no "when the SHTF".
It is happening NOW.
