Fear and loathing in the USA


I was recently pointed to an article in the New Yorker called “Doomsday Prep for the Super Rich”.  The article talks about how Silicon Valley executives and their colleagues on Wall Street have been quietly preparing for an array of potential apocalyptic events. So when the SHTF, they’re bailing out!

There are over 7 billion people in the world.  Most of which do not have the resources to “escape” . Yet, our media outlets and so-called leaders (politicians and corporate), the ones who are pandering this fear, are making plans without the rest of us.

Well, I don’t know about you, but I for one will be looking at ways to work with others in harms way should mother nature decide to shake off her human parasites or North Korea’s delusional regime push the nuclear holocaust button.

To grab my shit and run is not an options.

We will need thoughtful and courageous leaders to guide us through difficult times. We, collectively, can work towards a better world for mankind; to bridge our differences and keep our species from some future calamity.

But it helps to know we all have skin in the game.  That just because you have the financial bandwidth, doesn’t mean you have a guaranteed way out.  That is a cowards game where nobody wins.

I notice how strong my reactions was to this article.  I hope you will find a piece of you that lights up when you read the article.  Let us put our money and resources toward the betterment of our collective species.

This way, no one gets left behind.
