A series of seemingly unrelated crises all appear to be triggering at the same time. And it’s only going to get worse. Food shortages and food price hikes, gas and electricity prices skyrocketing, the construction industry unable to source material, or if it does at extremely high prices, international container shipping grinding to a standstill or becoming unfathomably expensive, China closing factories or greatly reducing their working hours due to their own power shortages. The Evergrande developer’s 300 billion debt which could start a new financial crisis far worse than the Lehman Brother’s 2008 one.
And all of this in between bouts of a global pandemic.
Preppers and survivalists have been talking about preparing for many of these issues for years, and have been laughed at in the media. Now, everyday people will be facing some of the hardest times of their once-comfortable lives. It’s perhaps time they turned to the preppers to ask how they themselves should prepare to weather out the colossal global storm which is not just approaching but has already begun.
However, and much more important than temporarily surviving the impending crisis and returning to our old ways, this all shows us that it’s really time we took stock of just how the world is being run, and to whose benefit, and then maybe coming up with an alternative option for both our and the Earth’s future. Because the people who are running it, and profiting from the mess we’re in, have clearly shown that they’re not doing so for the benefit of Mankind, or the beautiful planet we live on. regardless of the constant media propaganda bombardment regarding climate change, carbon footprints or other such non sequiturs.
