Every indicator I watch, and I watch and integrate vastly more than most people do, has been heading south for months now. I had been giving the US
perhaps 2-4 years before total collapse, but now the time frame seems to have shrunk to months. Six months to a year perhaps.
The weather changes are the primary drivers in my opinion: too many natural disasterss in too broad an area over too short a time frame. The
infrastructure in the US has been neglected, patched, band-aided, but never fixed
for three or four decades now, and can't be made up in time
to save much.
The financial structures are just as bad, and new diseases are emerging due to climate change: there's been a huge increase in what they've been
calling "food poisoning" over the past few months that represents a new unidentified bug, a new mrsa is in Irish cow's milk....the list keeps going
The heat wave assailing the east of the country will eventually break the power grid sometime this summer, and with a few million, hot, desperate,
hungry, and pissed-off people will most likely result in extreme turmoil on many different levels.
The picture is as bleak as ever I've seen it. Things are spinning down fast, and the pace accelerates daily. This is what happens when sociopaths
overload the top ranks of society: they don't, they can't
, literally can't
care what happens; their brains aren't wired for it, so don't
expect any miraculous changes anytime soon, they will continue to play their delusional games til the end.
So what to do?
I offer an open invitation to compatible ATS'ers to form a new tribe in Southern California.
Let's pool resources and buy a piece of land with water and form a self-sufficient community.
A huge library of real books: ~1700, covering every imaginable subject area.
A table saw, lots of camping gear, various hand tools, two truckloads of custom-built dirt, seed stock for medical grows, shovels, picks, and other
gardening tools, plus the usuall accouterments of modern life.
I have 14 years experience in medical grows and more in general gardening, many and varied skillsets accumulated over an interesting lifetime.
My brother has a huge music library, and the substantial remains of a sports cards business, some extra wheelchairs (he's disabled, post-polio),
Anyone interested U2U me and we can talk.
