I am new to the community here at ATS and a mod suggested I start an introduction thread so the community can get to know me better, and what I am looking for here. So... here it is!

I signed up today (Feb. 22nd, 2014) and only have been reading these forums for a few months. I do not always agree with what people have to post. I surely don't expect everyone to agree with my assertions either. What I like about this community is that I always find that posters here have freedom to post whatever they desire. This liberty is something that is needed in a world that is becoming more restrictive of free thought and expression.

The primary draw I have to ATS is that my friends and family get sick of me ruminating about how things are in the world. They don't want to hear about the state of certain things, and in ways I don't blame them. Ignorance is bliss, and when you are forced to face ugly truths it sometimes causes an uncomfortable paradigm shift. I've tried starting my own blogs (to spare loved ones from my unwarranted observations), though the blogs never got much traction. I never felt that my thoughts and observations were considered on any sort of critical thinking level.

I have a lot of beliefs and opinions that fringes on conspiracy. The prominent one is that I believe in a 'shadow government' / 'Illuminati' influence over our world today - however I am not certain how prevalent, deep, intentional, or cohesive the individuals who are in it are with one another. Sometimes I look at certain things and think there's no way it could be coincidence, and other things I think are people opportunists taking circumstances in long strings of past exploitations without any real guiding instigation of the events.

My interests are varied and vast, from genetically modified food, civil rights, group-think, government plots, the paranormal, spirituality, science, technology, politics, and the list goes on and on. I am currently in university on a path to obtain a Psy.D - which rings to my foremost personal passion - psychology. I love researching theory, people, and their behaviors. I have so many observations I hope to share with all of you (and probably a lot of opinion that you've heard before - but I'm new so please bear with me!) Finally the most important question I think anyone can ask is "Why?". Not saying the other questions are unimportant, surely they help our understanding, but 'why' is the foremost important question someone can ask.

Thank you so much for having me in your community! I look forward to meeting you.

What do you mean by 14-16 months? Economic collapse, civil unrest? Nuclear? Regime change? Where do you feel this will happen? How long would you recommending 'prepping' for? A year, two years, seven years? I ask because I tend to agree that there's a general 'feeling' that something is going to happen and something big. I'd love your take on it.

I live in an area that I am fairly convinced would collapse utterly if there were civil or economic unrest. I don't think there's enough ammo available to stave off something bad if it were to happen. I believe if something big were to happen either this area would be obliterated outright, or that the unrest would pour over and make any overt preparation more reason for people to target me and my family.

Belated welcome to ATS.

Having read your rant earlier this evening and finding enough substance to inquire further, I found your intro..

If you are still interested in psychology here is a member who rather consistently offers his in depth understanding of our current human predicament.
