Dare to Prepare: Collapse of Civilization Now Guaranteed

Eric Blair

"It has been written" as the saying goes.  For many generations there have been small groups of people who have researched and protested the criminal nature of our rulers who cast their disease on civilization.  These activists screamed truth to the masses about humanity's hidden slavery, yet few listened.  

However, the injustices have now become too extreme, too obvious, that the truth has risen to near critical mass with the independent-minded population.  And indeed many more sheep, who unknowingly fund their own prison, are waking up by the minute.  

But can this mass awakening prevent our civilization from collapsing during this detonation period? Sorry folks, the answer is no.  Because even if "The Resistance" is successful in swiftly overtaking the controls of government and overturns the Federal Reserve, the dominoes set in motion by the corporate rulers are still likely to fall as they still control the food, the oil, and the heavy weapons. Furthermore, the Federal Reserve will fight it out to the death, and they have the power to simply shut everything down with a flick of the switch.

The excellent story last week by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of Treasury under Reagan, called "The Year America Dissolved" dramatically describes the breakdown of civilization playing out in America:
It was 2017. Clans were governing America.
The first clans organized around local police forces. The conservatives’ war on crime during the late 20th century and the Bush/Obama war on terror during the first decade of the 21st century had resulted in the police becoming militarized and unaccountable.

As society broke down, the police became warlords. The state police broke apart, and the officers were subsumed into the local forces of their communities. The newly formed tribes expanded to encompass the relatives and friends of the police.
With the dollar’s demise, import prices skyrocketed. As Americans were unable to afford foreign-made goods, the transnational corporations that were producing offshore for US markets were bankrupted, further eroding the government’s revenue base.
The government was forced to print money in order to pay its bills, causing domestic prices to rise rapidly.  Faced with hyperinflation, Washington took recourse in terminating Social Security and Medicare and followed up by confiscating the remnants of private pensions. This provided a one-year respite, but with no more resources to confiscate, money creation and hyperinflation resumed.
Organized food deliveries broke down when the government fought hyperinflation with fixed prices and the mandate that all purchases and sales had to be in US paper currency. Unwilling to trade appreciating goods for depreciating paper, goods disappeared from stores.
In an interview about the article, Roberts said he tried for years to reach people with facts and figures and hoped some fictional reality would work better.  When asked if anything could be done to stop it, he responded "not at this rate."  In addition to Roberts' piece comes the elite Rockefeller Foundation's analysis of the future of America.  They are strikingly similar in their tone and outcomes:
The years 2010 to 2020 were dubbed the 'doom decade' for good reason: the 2012 Olympic bombing, which killed 13,000, was followed closely by an earthquake in Indonesia killing 40,000, a tsunami that almost wiped out Nicaragua, and the onset of the West China Famine, caused by a once-in a-millennium drought linked to climate change...
Not surprisingly, this opening series of deadly asynchronous catastrophes (there were more) put enormous pressure on an already overstressed global economy that had entered the decade still in recession...prompting the Economist headline: 'Is the Planet Finally Bankrupt?'
These dire circumstances forced tough tradeoffs. In 2015, the U.S. reallocated a large share of its defense spending to domestic concerns, pulling out of Afghanistan... Resource scarcities and trade disputes, together with severe economic and climate stresses, pushed many alliances and partnerships to the breaking point; they also sparked proxy wars and low-level conflict in resource-rich parts of the developing world. Nations raised trade barriers in order to protect their domestic sectors against imports and — in the face of global food and resource shortages — to reduce exports of agricultural produce and other commodities. 
With government power weakened, order rapidly disintegrating, and safety nets evaporating, violence and crime grew more rampant. Countries with ethnic, religious, or class divisions saw especially sharp spikes in hostility.
So, the future "has been written" by the masters of the universe, reported on by Dr. Roberts, and has now entered the collective consciousness of a huge number of people. Whether the motivator is religion, science, economics, philosophy, government, or all of the above; the experts and the commoners alike see it coming, therefore it shall be. And most importantly, the powers-that-be require this rough road in America to pave their global agenda through.

The collapse has even entered into the mainstream debate by default or by popular demand. Given the rapid growth of the the resistance movement on the Internet, the mainstream news outlets know exactly which articles are driving traffic to their respective websites, and it isn't fluff pieces anymore. Sure we may look at a picture of Lindsay Lohan half-naked and wasted in some club while were on the Huffington Post, but that's not what drove us there. The stories with the sharp fangs of truth and outrage are primarily running the show now and they are fully aware of it.

The Roberts and Rockefeller warnings of complete collapse are a few years out, although we are certainly experiencing the first dominoes falling.  It seems futile to try to stop the collapse, therefore the immediate focus should be on preparation.  Does that mean we should stop waking people up?  No, but we should encourage them to prepare now for a societal breakdown.  

To the sheep who happened to stumble upon this radical little article and don't think it can happen in America -- picture your city as Detroit, but without Federal aid, food or fuel . . . and welcome to the new world order!

My heart goes out to all the people who are scared and hurting right now. I am sure that during the French Revolution there were many hungry people. ....It helped persuade many people to join the cause...or so the history books teach. Maybe we shouldn't be afraid of food shortages and this housing crisis. Perhaps we should be more mature in handling this emotional crisis now (than then).

We seem to have invented a thing called the Internet to do just that. Help us help one another through the trouble times.

Eileen - Thank you so much for your wise words. The growing awareness will definitely help make the transition during this painful time far less devastating. If we can only keep the power structures from dividing us further...Hopefully the aware see through it. Best,
Eric B.

putin threw out the jewis oligarchs and put 2 or three in prison they lost in a couple days with him hot on them. they cant control anything from their island refuge. it isnt hard to take over monsanto, let the farmers farm no interest or controls, just need to step up ti a higher thought and dump the sins we been in.

It will be more like a social metamorphosis. As populations realize they are abandoned to their fate they will turn inwards to each other, the family unit and village mentality will become vogue... the elite will become ignored making them irrelevant... If not... it wont be pretty.

BlackMagic said...

All I can think of is Albert Pikes description of world war 3. Some think it will be triggered by us going into Iran. I think we are already in the middle of it. Anyway he describes a great social cataclism coming about. We think of it as a collapse of the US. I think it may be wider than that encompasing the entire world. If it comes to pass we all like to think that people will form little comunities and plant their heirloom seeds. But others will have more practical ideas such as taking that food away at gunpoint or worse. If we really go mad max you will need more that preparation to survive. You may have to become the evil sort of person you now hate just to protect yourself and family. This time will be horor upon horor

"It seems futile to try to stop the collapse, therefore the immediate focus should be on preparation". Exactly how could one "Stop the Collapse"? By waking up the masses? WRONG! Those who are worth awakening are already awake. The others are either on board with the "elites" plan, or are mindless idoits who are too busy watching (american idol, football, nascar, ect..) to care! It is evident that the only way to ever get this country back from the "elites" is by force, and that just isn't going to happen. Today's American "Patriot" is nothing more than a pussy (sorry to say myself included)! And so, on we go into the New World Order!

Collapse is inevitable and poised to happen. Nothing special or unusual about it. It's the way of planet earth to reinvent life over and over in myriad ways. It's the way of ALL things to end, including civilizations. Nothing lasts. Get over it. Variety of life is not a bad thing. This techno civilization is so f'd up in so many ways it is beyond repair. It must unravel in order to be replaced with something new, something more harmonious and respectful of all life and the planet itself.

This is the only way to prepare for the coming judgment (tribulation) of the wicked:

"Pray that you might be found worthy to escape all these things that are coming to pass and to stand before the Son of Man." Luke 21:36

(Repentance is required)

Love what Ava said...except that we've done this to the Earth and ourselves in the name of Greed, not god.

um...hasn't every generation predicted collaspe?

R. H. Politz said...

In "After 2012", the story opens with a global collapse caused by the very things described here. The book is fiction of course and meant to entertain those who like a thrilling story of mystery and magic but the premise of rebellion by the human "sheep" is something I've written about for decades. I sincerely hope I'm wrong but, am I..., wrong that is?

janet9195 said...

None of us can predict with accuracy the future; however we can see what is going on around us and draw logical conclusions. It does not look good. As far as a collapse of the U.S. gov, anytime there is a power vacuum, strong man types will step in and fill it up. Both nature and human society abhor a vacuum. We need to prepare and be as flexible as we can be, so we can respond to whatever the future brings.

Shawn said...

This guy is preaching the end of the world and he says getting out of debt is the most important element to survival? Huh?
If the world collapses one's debt won't matter: there will be no mechanism with which to track and collect these paper obligations.
If the world is heading to collapse BORROW AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE and buy farmland with it, store canned goods, and live it up.

"Duh, did you say something? I wuz too busy watching FUX News about that drunken tramp Lindsey and searching the 'Net for the latest hottie soft core porn pics of Lady GAG GAG."

"Maybe I'll read what you wrote after I spend 4 hours tonight, glued to the TV, watching football, eating a ton of potato chips and drinking diet soda...gotta watch that weight!"

Glenn Beck has it right:

"Prepare your own house" because that is what you have control over.

As grandma said, "as simple as a pimple" ....

Seems to me that national guard and military would be bigger dogs on most blocks than police... The last big institution standing!

Do 'nice people' actually survive when civilization collapses? If physical survival ends up being dependent on not just access to food but on being able to defend it, then being 'nice' might not get an individual very far. The best one could do is to at least vow to live off what one honestly produces, and barter, but to fend off any invader or usurper with deadly force if need be. Looking back a few millenia, this is just how people have always had to survive! Pacifism is a wonderful ideal, but clearly it needs an ordered civilization in which to be viable. In the animal kingdom, if you offer no resistance, you just get eaten!

It's continuing with the social cleansing of London. If the ConDem gets its way the poor will be unable to continue to live in the city and will be shipped out to satellite ghettos. No work, no/crap schools, increasing disorder, less money spent on the police will mean that again the vulnerable will suffer. The poor will be scapegoated and marginalised and their only hope will be getting drafted into a mineral war in the developing world.
All of this assuming that alignment with galactic central point in 2012 doesn't result in polar shift/ reversal.

If you read Joseph Tainter's book on collapse, you see in most cases nice people still have a strategy in a collapse, because of tribal tendencies. But a few collapses left so few resources tribalism broke down, like seen in "The Road". In most historical cases starvation caused the collapse. So in our case, people like Mr. Greg Bacon above may "pad" our landing.

Yes there will be a collaspe, your seeing math variable collaspe, the unknow variables as the math spread out accerated out, of coare they was great growth and equal is the collape as the variables now become know. ontop you have natural disasters and space time of cycles that are in thousands years, those times will recurr, are now becoming know to us. Surviving is the only way through prepare people move forward.

LOL great anarchist fantasy.. Moronic, but entertaining, if you like Chicken Little stories.

I'm so depressed now. Was searching for a lead on some kind of global revolution and how to prepare. But now I'm feeling fatalistic. If the powers that be are predicting such a demise within the next ten years, (whether via fiction or not) then in the next ten years it will be. If they can get away with it.

If you go back and read various government projections, you will see that most major events were hinted at or described within 10-20 years of happening.

Very educative story! I really like this wonderful writeup. It's very interesting perform though kinda meaningful so long. Thanks!

Modrall has the answer as we all do:

the only way to prepare for the coming judgment (tribulation) of the wicked:

"Pray that you might be found worthy to escape all these things that are coming to pass and to stand before the Son of Man." Luke 21:36

(Repentance is required)

Ask the LORD our God to forgive us our sins and for Jesus to live inside of us. Jesus is the only way to freedom and to truly go home where there is no pain and no hunger!!

Thank you LORD GOD for the cross and sending you're only SON (Jesus) to die for our sins. Please protect us from whats to come! I ask you LORD to please put a hand on all of us hear on earth and remind us that you are our Father and you will take us home. Amen!

When civilization collapses, it will just be a new beginning. All civilizations have collapsed, only for a new civilization to take the place of the old one.

It is only logical that Civilization will collapse, but the thing is that collapse can be very long. The Collapse of the Western Roman Empire took three centuries and it was a mix of things.

Should we worry about the Collapse of modern civilization? perhaps, but it will not be the end of the world.
