Economic news is moving extremely fast this year, and it will only become more frenetic as we close in on 2016. The general consensus among alternative economic investigators seems to be that 2015 will be the year for trigger events and dead fantasies. In my six part series entitled ‘One Last Look At The Real Economy Before It Implodes’ I essentially agree with this timetable. If 2014 was the new 2007 with all its immediate warning signs, then 2015 is the new 2008 with all the chaos and broken paradigms. ~ Brandon Smith, Economic Crisis Goes Mainstream ~ What Happens Next?
There truly is “nothing new under the sun”…other than the staggering number of people uninformed, misinformed, disengaged and…indifferent, as the very ground beneath their feet is about to give way. Insouciance (Thanks Zero Hedge), not confusion, will be our epitaph. Well, insouciance and willful blindness or ignorance…take your pick.
I had two conversations with two different people this week who represent a very significant segment of our society. In the first, the CEO of a company in the medical consulting space was lecturing those of us in ear shot, on the morality of end-of-life or even near-end-of life medical treatment and procedures…with absolute zero awareness of who Margaret Sanger was, the Eugenics Movement, and/or the population-control agenda of the NWO crowd! The second, was with a mother in the same circle who was completely unaware of the pure Evil her very tax dollars were subsidizing at Planned Parenthood, exposed by a series of undercover videos of PP executives negotiating the sale of baby parts for profit!
Is a single day selloff of 531 points on the DOW, the “market correction everybody’s been waiting for”? Or, is there something else afoot here…as Mr. Smith adds the possibilities of trigger events, dead fantasies, implosions, chaos and broken paradigms to the mix. One thing is certain. There is only one way to rule-out or rule-in possibility as probability before the event. The one-two punch of knowledge and awareness. And without the former, there is no latter!
So I shared the quote with my friend, aghast and horrified by the PP revelation, “The truth shall set us free. But first, it will make us miserable!” We had quite the conversation about what it all means and where things are probably headed, given what we know. In her case, she at least knew in her heart and was willing to admit something’s just not right. But as a family they have taken zero steps to prepare because the CEO husband was suffering from a fatal case of normalcy bias.
It’s amazing to me how often this is the case with married couples, business partners and even groups of friends and neighbors. One is the prepper, while the other is the doubter. That is the mix in my own home!
The question is, for those of us who know what we know, what do we do with what we know? I am here to tell you that there is no question about what to do. It is our obligation and sacred duty to become, as Oath Keeper David Codrea describes it, “Force-Multipliers” in order to spread the word…to get as many people as possible into the lifeboats by any and all means necessary! For some of us that means hitting all your extended family members with both barrels at the first family reunion in forty years! Who cares that none of them are talking to you three months later, if you were able to plant a seed that is now germinating in the frenetic soil of current events…taking root in their hearts and minds. For others, more technologically adept and connected, it means activating the alarm bells wonderfully available (for now) via Facebook and Twitter!
As the minds of good people begin to open, they will begin to see how other good people who have had the advantage of being aware a little longer are really making a difference! GOD Knows! 🙂
