“The US (world) economy is going to crash. You need to go out and buy tons of prepper food. You need to buy ___________ (fill in with gold, silver, bitcoin, poi, guns, roses) so you can survive.
“It’s going to be a struggle and it’s going to be hard and (if you call yourself ‘Democrat’) “the US is going to be taken over by rich old white guys!”, and (if you call yourself ‘Republican’) “the US is going to be taken over by liberal tongue-pierced transgender multi-racial musicians and graffiti artists!!””
And these are almost always followed by, “Be afraid, be very afraid!!” (or an implication like that).
I ain’t buying it. Not one bit.
I see this every so often. Usually it’s from a Clif High, Bix Weir, etc., video or website, and always seems to point to the “collapse of everything”. And, if they’re selling a product, followed by, “Buy my product, and get a discount on my patented “Zombie Apocalypse Repellent Cream”…
Don’t care how many of these I get from people, or that I find on my own. My own very very very very very very very very very very very very very very strong sense is…
“Ain’t gonna happen.” (and I ain’t preparin’ for such… now go feed the chickens.).
In the end, I say (and practice), “Follow the Higher Inner Guidance”. And if it says to do all the things I’ve mentioned above, well, I’ll likely do them.
Now I do keep enough drinking water around for about 2 weeks. I do have a little extra cash on hand in case ATMs go down. I do have a “get the hell outta here quick” bag in case I have to leave fast. I do have extra food on hand. I do have my own (our own) produce in the yard (papayas, chard, kale, mangoes, bananas, etc. But that’s all kind of a general “be prepared for emergencies” kind of deal.
It’s the “Be afraid, be very afraid” implication with some of these “predictors” that I do not buy into, and will not buy into.
All I can say is. “Stay in the clear. Stay free from fear. And Let the Light within shine so bright it comes out your ears!”
There we go. I can live with that!!
