“All governments had better open their eyes for we are on the brink of a major convergence between both the Cycle of Civil Unrest, Civil War & Revolution and International War.”
The statement from Martin Armstrong via Armstrong Economics Blog is a chilling one in that if true – the times ahead will look nothing like life as we knew it up until now.
Armstrong points out that this is the first time we have seen this convergence since the 1700s.
He says “We have been warning that 2014 is the beginning of a new cycle that will see a highly unusual convergence between our domestic (civil unrest & revolution) and international war model – for the first time since…the US and French Revolutions and the fall of monarchy.”
We are starting to see this in the West where memories of previous events still linger deep wounds from 1992.
The confrontation in Nevada between Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management, whose Director was Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) former senior adviser, has turned into an issue of important cycle unrest. The government wants the land and demands Bundy gets his cattle off of the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations. This dispute between a Nevada rancher and federal rangers over alleged illegal cattle grazing erupted into an Old West-style showdown on the open range this week, even prompting self-proclaimed members of militia groups from across the country to join the rancher in fighting U.S. “tyranny.”
This is a brewing resentment of federal government that goes back to Ruby Ridge, which was the site of a deadly confrontation and siege in northern Idaho in 1992 between Randy Weaver, his family and his friend Kevin Harris, and agents of the United States Marshals Service (USMS) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). It resulted in the death of Weaver’s son Sammy, his wife Vicki, and Deputy U.S. Marshal William Francis Degan. The Feds simply shot his unarmed family dead and it was alleged they even shot his son in the back. This is indeed the continued militarization of the police in America.
Grassroots uprisings are springing up all over the world due to corruption, economic disease, and misgovernment.
The socialistic agendas that have lined the pockets of government and filled the coffers of banks is over. The national debts are on average composed of 70% interest payments not programs to help the poor as marketed. The debts that keep growing with no intent upon paying anyone back are draining the national productivity and turning the people into economic slaves. The standard of living has declined and it now takes two incomes to survive where one use to be just fine. Women won the right to work and lost the right to stay home.
The promises that you save for the future have collapsed into dust as interest rates have been driven lower making savings utterly worthless. There is no such thing as saving and living off your fixed income. The elderly are being driven back into the work force and the whole ideas that a generation believed in are vanishing before their eyes.
So it is no longer communists and dictators that are the targets. All governments are now the targets and when the economy turns down…the threat of civilization will be pulled apart by the self-interest of politicians clinging to power to the detriment of the people.
So what should you do about it? Be prepared. There’s no stopping it. Plan for it. Don’t just take Armstrong’s word for it – look around and see for yourself. This world (and the U.S.) is rapidly decaying into a rotten stinking pile of $hit. When this $hitstorm hits for real – it will be largely too late to prepare much further.
I don’t know how long the storm will last, but it could be for a very long time. A major aspect to your preparations should include a lifestyle change (or changes) such that you will become better able to adapt to conditions of civil unrest, social chaos, a lack of adequate resources, and much worse standards of living – possibly horrific in some regions.
