Here on ATS, a scenario talked about often is the SHTF. Right now, with our financial system it's obvious our current system is broken and corrupt beyond repair. It NEEDS to collapse to establish a more fair and just system. Yet, it seems like our politicians are determined to kick the can down the road as long as possible and it could be another 40 years before we actually have a financial collapse, if we actually do have one.
Call me crazy, but I'm rooting for a collapse, because it would allow a more just and true system to emerge and perhaps finally awake people to the corruption of the world. Money should not be connected to whether people can eat or drink or survive. We need to have a resource based economy where basic necessities are freely distributed and people work towards the common good, not to work jobs to pay the bills and eat. Call me an idealist, but this is the system I envision. Yet, everyday people get up and act like things are normal as politicians and bankers piss away our future. Every day I come here to ATS and see more predictions about TSHTF yet none of them ever come true.
So ATS, will the S ever HTF or will the world keep chugging along like it has for centuries?edit on 3-10-2011 by mossme89 because: (no reason given)

For those of us who may not know... What does SHTF mean?
It's a little hard to say if it will if we don't know what it is
Makes you wonder, one biblical reference is not to Gold or wealth, but to 'Money' - 'Money is the root of all evil'.
