I like you're thinking, OP. I would think this doomsday prediction date could have been a cash cow. It does seem to be a profitable opportunity lost.
But as others have posted, the gain to be had from whipping up a "prepping" frenzy would not be as great as the money to be made with the usual
TPTB have no interest in/nothing to gain from any number of us useless eaters being prepared to survive any emergency. But, as someone else wrote,
they do have a desire to wring every last penny out of us before those pennies are completely worthless.
Still, with all the peculiar weather; "atmospheric anomalies" (sounds, sights, explosions); bizarre truck hijackings of, as one member pointed out,
items you might use to stock bunkers if you were out of time to load up on via purchasing; global economic turmoil, that could be looked at as
governments behaving with fiscal abandon because they have foreknowledge of there being no consequences for doing so; the rumored sealing of the
seedbank in Norway; the alleged uptick in construction of bunkers for private and government customers; and all of the freaky murals at DIA and BoA,
and just the general weirdness that is DIA -- it all makes me pause and wonder.
Maybe the MSM is whistling past the graveyard, or playing the move along, nothing to see here game by not "reporting" on 2012.
Related to what someone else wrote about making the movie 2012 to fictionalize and thus defuse any concern that there is any chance that any of this
is real, it seems the show Doomsday Preppers has decided to take that approach to "prepping" as well.
The show used to be interesting, not too many completely out there people that they featured. It was actually like some documentary works on the
"prepping phenomenon". This season's premiere, however, seems to insinuate that preppers and prepping really is just a freak show. Coincidence?
dunno Speculation? yes.
Neat site which timelines failed apocryphal predictions
