It’s Monday. It’s the first of August. The world is falling apart.
If you saw the videos that I posted on Friday, you’ll know some of the reasons why I say that the world is falling apart. If you’re confused about the references to ‘Monday’ and ‘August’ you’re either on vacation or out of medication. (I’ll wait while you go get more. You’re going to need them if you want to read the rest of this post.)
Let me put Friday’s videos together with all the stuff that I’ve been telling you for the last couple of months. It doesn’t paint a pretty picture.
When we started down this road towards complete collapse, we were a bold America – bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. We were the ‘good guys’, and no one could challenge us. Anyone who tried, got beaten. Badly.
And, when we beat them, we picked them up, put them back together and made them our friends. Like I said, we were the ‘good guys’.
That was the America of our grandparents. Bold and Beautiful.
Unfortunately, the grandparents handed things over to our parents. Our parents weren’t made of the same stuff that our grandparents were made. They had never seen anything like the Great Depression. They had electricity, running water and television. They never missed a meal.
This isn’t to say that they didn’t have successes. They went to college and to the moon. They built Skylab and developed cures for disease. They defeated the Soviet Union and brought down the Iron Curtain.
Of course, they didn’t stop there. They brought us flower power and Woodstock. They went off to war in Vietnam, and lost. They brought us Roe v Wade and taught us to murder our unborn children. They made their own values and flung them in the face of our grandparents. Sex, drugs and Rock n Roll was their idea, as well as conspicuous consumption.
That was the America of our parents. Rebellious and Soft.
When our parents handed America over to us, we didn’t even know what it was. We had no values. We had no aspirations. There was nothing to live for, so we lived it for ourselves. We thought that America was a nice idea, as long as it didn’t get in the way. When we bothered to get married, we were unfaithful. We forgot to go to church, and when we did, we didn’t listen.
We were the ‘me generation’. And our America wasn’t anything but a hollow shell.
I cannot imagine that there will be any America for our kids.
Maybe they’ll turn her into a website.
But, it gets worse.
Threats to Our Existence
We aren’t just a hollow generation with a hollow country. We are also under extreme existential threat. Our parents bequeathed us with the worst financial crisis in the history of the United States, and we do not have the will to deal with it. Our grandparents set up a government that lied to our parents, and is lying to us.
We bought houses that we couldn’t afford. We borrowed money to pay for our toys. We let our government buy us off with baubles, trinkets and a good time.
The bill is coming due, and we can’t pay it. Or, won’t.
However, we could probably deal with it, if that was the only threat aimed at us. Unfortunately, it isn’t.
We have consumed the world’s resources at an amazing rate, and we assumed that what the Earth gave, it could keep on giving.
Forty years after oil discovery in America reached its peak, the production of oil reached its peak, and then began a rapid decline. If this model applies to the rest of the world, we are in trouble.
The discovery of world oil reserves reached their peak more than forty years ago, and it appears that world oil production has also reached its peak. It’s only downhill from here.
At the same time, the demand for oil around the world is skyrocketing. China, India, South America and Africa need more and more oil, and there isn’t more oil to get. And, what’s left is becoming more and more expensive to get.
We’ve also peaked in Uranium, Copper, Coal and who knows what else.
At the same time that vital resources are no longer easy to get, there’s more and more competition for what’s left.
A destroyed economy and scarce resources? We could probably even recover from that, if we worked hard and cut our consumption to the bone.
Unfortunately, the trump of doom doesn’t stop there.
When Jimmy Carter helped create the Islamic Republic of Iran, no one could have guessed that they would pose an existential threat to the United States. Yes, we knew that they were nuts, but we also knew that they were halfway around the world.
And, when the Soviet Union fell in the ’90s, we thought that we’d made it to easy street. Unfortunately, the GPS coordinates for Easy Street were wrong, and we find ourselves at the gates of Hell.
At the same time that we are faced with economic catastrophe and declining resources, we are now threatened by Islamic terrorism, Iranian nuclear weapons and an increasingly belligerent Russia. As I write this, Arab states are on fire and Islamic fundamentalists are taking power in the midst of chaos.
Add to this a war-weariness from conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, and now Libya.
Sometime, within the next five years, we will be forced to go to war with Iran, and we are not going to be able to handle it. No one has ever conquered Iran, and we aren’t going to be the first.
We are out of money. We are out of resources, and World War III is on our doorstep.
I just cannot see how America is going to survive this. I just can’t.
But, there’s one more threat, that will take us out, if war doesn’t.
America has stood in the way of world government from the very beginning. America was too strong and too powerful. Her economy was incredible and her military unstoppable.
The US didn’t need a world order, and without the US, there could be no world order.
But, after the economy crushes us, and our access to resources dry up… and if we manage to survive World War III… we will be unable to hold off the globalists. Indeed, the US will beg for the globalists to come in and save the day.
And, what freedoms we had left would disappear forever.
The next five-to-fifteen years will change the world forever, and you aren’t going to like it.
Assuming, of course, that you survive it.
