A recent comment here on Modern Survival Blog reads as follows:
“We are going to be on our own. Your community will be your country and you better prepare now. Normalcy Bias will get you and yours killed. Know who the good guys and the bad guys are in your neighborhood/town. Network with trustworthy friends, neighbors, and family members. When the economic correction happens, and the Pollyanna’s, clueless fools, and snitches are running around in tight little circles emitting high-pitched squeaking noises, you want to be as far away from these losers as you can.”
I’ve heard this notion stated in more ways than one, and let me tell you… it’s true.
After the onslaught of social chaos crosses over the thin veneer of civil society, the ensuing breakdown and collapse of our infrastructure, just-in-time systems of distribution, and law & order, will result in the shrinking of your world…
Whatever food comes from your own local community (gardens, farms, etc..),
will be all that there is.
After waking up to the terrible news this morning of 5 Dallas police officers being shot down by a coordinated sniper team at a ‘Black Lives Matter’ rally last night, while searching for the words to write, I choose to get the discussion going in response to the words of Stewart Rhodes, founder and National President of Oath Keepers:
Many of you may have been paying attention and have been seeing in the alternative-news (and even in the mainstream) the violent upheavals that are taking place all around the country by ‘anti-Trump’ protestors of the ‘far left’ who are provoking and inflaming ‘the right’ as they kick the hornets nest…
This morning after watching several videos of the thuggish behavior during a Trump rally in San Jose last night, I felt angered and compelled to alert you as to what is coming… This is the first time I’ve posted on this specific subject, and it likely will not be the last.
Here’s what they’re doing and why I believe this is not going to end well:
The all-caps “PREPARE NOW” is for a very important reason and emphasis. And yes, I do mean to ‘scare’ those who may not have adequately prepared yet.
It’s too late now for the Venezuelans where the situation there has become desperate as grocery stores are empty and people are starving as they look for cats and dogs to eat – but you still have time to get ready for what may come your way. However I would not delay…
Could there be a dramatic and overnight reduction in the value of the dollar? “I think this is coming in very short order now. The trail of bread crumbs is indicating this is what is afoot RIGHT NOW.” (macroeconomic researcher Rob Kirby)
I have been following recent events this week of the emergency Federal Reserve meetings, the admission by Deutsche Bank of precious metals price rigging, China’s new ‘Interbank Payment System’ (CIPS), and the new gold trading market at the Shanghai Gold Exchange. This, coupled with China’s enormous accumulation of gold over these past years has triggered my notion to post and alert you of what may be coming our way – and potentially very soon…
A flooding of dollars back to the U.S. resulting in a rapid devaluation of its purchasing power (currency inflation).
“This is going down… this is going to happen.”
“I think this is going down in the next two, three weeks.”
“The clock’s about to strike midnight…”
I believe that there is a possibility that the US Government will make a big attempt to ban all cash (sometime in the future) as we transfer into a cashless society whereby any and all of our ‘paper’ money will be converted into numbers, digits, invisible electronic signals.
As electronic currency crosses through cyberspace faster than ‘the blink of an eye’, during it’s lightning-fast journey it may pass through many kinds of devices, and it actually becomes ‘information’. Information about YOU.
And whenever and wherever there is information, there is always a nearby threat: surveillance and censorship. “When money becomes information, it will inform on you.”
Are you ready for a cashless society in a world of limitation, control, and surveillance?
What’s your take on that and do you think people that are holding cash will be punished (financially speaking or otherwise)?
Here’s more to think about:
“There is a dramatic increase in the need to prepare and provide for our families due to moral, social and economic issues that confront our nation. Millions of Americans have recognized this and are preparing for the coming storm. As a result, the new “Prepper” industry is booming; an indicator that concerned citizens and patriots know that there is trouble on the horizon.”
The following is perhaps the ‘real’ state of the union, provided by an astute MSB reader,
