    Doomsday Survey: 51% of Americans Believe a Financial Collapse Is Imminent; 85% Say Country Is Overwhelmingly Under-Prepared

    A recent survey of 1,007 nationally representative Americans ages 18 and over suggests that most of us believe a doomsday scenario of some kind will occur in the next twenty five years.

    With three million preppers in the U.S. getting ready for widespread disaster, gun sales sky rocketing, and retail precious metals purchases at unprecedented levels, the results of the survey performed by Kelton Research on behalf of National Geographic shouldn’t be surprising.

    Among other things, the survey asked respondents to choose which natural or man-made doomsday scenarios they believed are most likely to happen in the United States.

    The result suggest that Americans are more aware of the dangers facing our fragile society today than ever before.

    National Geographic Survey via The Ready Store:

    Which of the following, if any, do you think might happen in the United States in the next 25 years?  Please choose all that apply.

    About how many years from now, if ever, do you think it’s likely that the world will experience a major catastrophe? Your best guess is fine.

    If a major catastrophe were to happen in your lifetime, do you think it would be…

    Which of the following do you think is a smarter investment?

    Which of the following, if any, have you ever done to prepare for a potential catastrophe? Please choose all that apply.

    Which of the following explain why you are not as prepared as you think you need to be for a potential catastrophe? Please choose all that apply. (Among respondents who think they are not fully prepared)

    In the event of a catastrophe, do you think that most Americans will be…

    The Doomsday Preppers Survey was conducted by Kelton Research between January 3rd and January 10th, 2012 using an email invitation and an online survey. Quotas are set to ensure reliable and accurate representation of the total U.S. population ages 18 and over.

    While millions may be preparing, and over half of Americans expect a major catastrophic natural or man-made event to occur in the course of their lifetimes, at least 25% of Americans – fully 80 million – have taken no active steps to prepare themselves for disaster because they simply don’t believe it’s a possibility.

    Our guess is that these overwhelmingly under-prepared individuals will be the first ones screaming for FEMA to give them food and calling for confiscation and redistribution of the supplies of others.

        • I think Kevin was being funny – at least I hope so.

          As KY Mom says it’s all age groups contributing. We’ve all become accustomed to having what we want, when we want it. Doesn’t matter if you don’t have the funds or means to get it.

          We are also guilty because many of us have given up on the process of holding the government accountable. I see this all the time at the local levels. We get busy with our lives and don’t fight it when a local developer comes in to fleece the town (even though a local politician is making out).

          We have to be accountable again. Only then will we make our government accountable.

            Hooey boy it’s gonna get bad! Why do you think TPTB have been showing us disaster films for at least the last two decades? Because they know what’s coming and are trying to get the public acclimated to the thought of it. They think we won’t flip out that way. Better get on it…I feel it a comin’…

            Largely because they’re a bunch of spoiled, loud mouth brats; i.e. Tom Hayden, Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinam, et al. They have contributed nothing morally, culturally or spiritually to this country; they’ve taken more than given. They’re hypocritical tree hugging freaks and earth mother birkenstock wearing communists.

          March 13, 2012 at 12:16 pm Spot on. We made the mistake of trying to include a neighbor into our survival group. 2 months later he got caught breaking into our house. Funny thing is that they guy has more money than us, he just wanted some AR’s not registered to him.
          I have a work I put together about understanding human nature and how to distinguish and size up people based on their pesonalities. Thru years of research and study physcologists and persons of very enlightened spiritual awareness have given to us a guide as to the five types of personalities that exist and the five diiferent things that “drive” them or “make them tick”. It has been very helpful to me over the past 15 years or so in understanding people I come into contact with. It helps me decide if I want to align myself with and put any amount of “trust” in them. It is amazing, because it rings true of about 95% of the people in the world, about 95% of the time. I think it is very important to know what kind of people you divulge information to about prepping and who you may consider to take on as a partner in prepping. I won’t give it out here because it is kinda long, but if anyone from this site that I feel good about wants it I’ll email it to you. Just send me a note at: mctread@embarqmail.com … I’ll send you what I think is very helpful info., no strings attached.

            Don”t Tread and HighSpeed: you could not have said it better!. The thing that surprises me is the number of comments made in response to this article having NO BEARING on the article. I thought that was the purpose of the comments section to begin with. It really surprises me how people come on this site that or no more interested in the material presented. It was once said you can make mistakes out of ignorance, meaning you simply don’t have the knowledge or out of stupidity, meaning you should know better, but choose to show ignorance. It’s these people that when things “go south” the serious preppers have to be on guard for.

            Well, no s**t! Good observation, Walt.

            Any time we see anyone blaming an entire group for the failings of one or a few individuals, they are ALWAYS wrong. It would be just as dumb to say that we are all screwed up now because of the 20-something slackers out there. Yes, there are some of those but so what? Every group has some individuals who are less than desirable. Boomers are no different in that regard from any other group.

          The “greatest generation” was the generation that handed this country over, lock, stock and barrel, to the enemy within. America’s fate was sealed long before any “boomers” came of age.

          As far as coming potential disasters are concerned, I think we are more likey to see man-made ones. Yes, the 80 million who are doing nothing to prep will whine the loudest when TSHTF, and will demand you give up what you have. And many will just become violent parasites.

            Right… instead of merely being noisy parasites.

            It’s bizarre how so many people do not grasp the simple concept of “rights” and “responsibilities” being the opposite sides of the same coin. Neither can exist without the other, no matter how many people try to make it so. Whining about other people’s failures while failing miserably to address their own seems typical of such complainers.

            Just Me: Man made disasters can be mitigated by man. With the exception of nuclear war, natural disasters are by far the greater threat to humanity.

            The LSM is not reporting the situation much, but volcanoes ALL around the Ring of Fire have been waking up over the past year or so. Costa Rica, Mexico,Guatemala, Colombia, are just the latest examples. Bulges in the NW have also been detected.

            When Etna explodes like Mt St Helens did, it will be time to bug out, the S will HTF. At the very least, these eruptions will exacerbate climate change and thus food supplies.

          As unpopular as it is, I have to admit there is some truth to it. My own parents were never around as I was growing up as they were focusing on their own careers. My brother and I had to drop out of college because we could not qualify for financial aid due to their high incomes. I finally finished in ten years, but he never went back.

          My parents openly admit they are spending their children’s inheritance while at the same time blowing through the windfall they inherited.

          My father often criticizes me for leaving the rat race to become a stay-at-home dad and homesteader, but he will reap what he has sown when TSHTF and no one comes to save him.

          I have no bitterness toward my parents, but my brother rarely visits. My mother asked me once why he doesn’t comes around. All I could say is that “when you tell a little boy you would have rather had an abortion than him, he believes you.” One of the hardest things I ever had to do was explain to my little brother what an abortion was.

            Government Guy,

            That is terrible.

            My parents were also part of the ‘Greatest Generation.’. My parents weren’t / aren’t perfect. (neither am I.). They grew up during the depression and have always been very careful with money and worked hard. They loved us (us kids) and tried to be good parents. My parents rarely took vacations as they ran a small business. My Dad is now in a wheel chair and my Mom is not in the best of health. I wish they had taken some vacations and had some fun. I wish they had enjoyed themselves more when they were younger.

            I’m not sure how to perceive this idea. I’m on the tail end of the baby boomer range, 1964. My parents don’t ever think of themselves as entitled, and my dad is smart with his money.

            My parents taught me how to handle money and spend it wisely. My house is paid off and I’m about to get a car with cash, all with money I earned on the job. I expect no handouts from my parents or anyone else. I have no misplaced sense of entitlement and anything I get is with my own labor. I was taught this is called paying one’s own way.

            I’ve paid into Social Stupidity all my working life, and have no delusions of getting any of that money back when I’m “eligible” to collect. (I’m confident the US will be into austerity long before then.)

            So I would say I am confused at how anyone can say the baby boomer generation (meaning me I guess) is at fault for any social or monetary problems in the US. But then, maybe I am not the average boomer. Dunno, just supposing.

            Scout…my story is much like yours. Unfortunately,when we are younger we sometimes look to blame the older generations for the world’s problems. I would think that with sites like these people would have seen by now that most of the world’s misery is caused by the people who are in power. Some are older ,some younger. How far back do we blame the American people for the corrupt corp? Act of 1877? Federal Reserve Act of 1913? FDR’s New Deal of 1933? All of these put us at a disadvantage.Perhaps we should blame Nixon for the petrodollar and all the ensuing wars. Our corrupt corp gov is behind our failing economy by globalizing to make a buck. We as a people have no say in the matter short of revolution ( unless you think your vote matters).The PTB love to divide us with arguments blaming each other. It keeps the light off of them.

            Jrs – This subject does one other thing, It stokes the fire of thought and debate of what has happened, and what IS happening to our country now. @boomers-I was born in 1969, I publicly take the blame for what has transpired in this nation since 1988. Yeah, I failed. We have ALL failed. Some on this site know what happened to the patriot movement in the 90′s, it got smashed ruthlessly by the corp, much suffering by many. The boomers have been alive longer then me, so simple math(1+1=2) puts MORE of the blame on you. This fact CANNOT be disputed. Example- 1950 a man robs a bank, then in 1988, he robs another bank with a younger robber. Older guy=2 banks robbed. Younger guy=1 bank robbed. Who is the bigger criminal?? 1+1=2. There are some flaws in this analogy, I know this. “Keep it simple stupid”- unknown…. “to the beutiful and the wise- the mirror always lies”-Neil Peart

I raised three kids by myself, and yeah, I’m a guy (not that my gender should matter, but even in these “enlightened” times, people are surprised by guys raising their kids).

            That attitude sums up what is truly wrong right now: the moral rot, the foulness that leads a mob to beat up and rob an unarmed man then brag about it on YouTube, or makes a parent tell a child something so filthy and awful. America deserves better than this

            Similar situation. As a kid I was always reminded what a burden I was. My parents were kids during WWII. The “greatest generation” promised themselves a lot and contributed even less than the boomers. Plenty of blame to go arouind. The “slackers” of gen X bear less responsibility than either of the two generations before them.

          But here is the answer: I earned it. No one gave it to me. I paid my way. I don’t think your logic is founded on solid ground. Don’t blame others for you own shortcomings. Grow up.

            The young kids of today need to learn a thing or two from the Boomers. Such as Pride, Discipline, Respect, Courage, Honor. How many live off of wel-fare?? How many rather make money selling dope?? How many live with Mom/Dad/Grandparents because they can’t provide a place of their own.

            The ones that have lost their jobs, this does not apply to them. Only the ones who do not want to better themselves by living off a family member/friend of tax payers money.

            So no, I personally can’t blame the Boomers. Our country will loose a lot of the morality that it was built on when they are all gone. It’s a dog-eat-dog world now a days and people are down right mean any more to one another. Even the reality shows push negativity and material obsession.

            Really. There’s something I need to learn from you?

            I doubt that very very much sir.

            Let us recall whose generation is the ORIGINATOR of well over 2/3 of the Leftist policies that you now so merrily and hypocritically deny after finding out the hard way that they don’t work. How many people did your generation burn through with your ideology to discover things that have been patently obvious for 5000 years?

            Respect. My ass. Hard work. What a laugh riot is that. The ones of you that didn’t end up permanently tripping and under a freeway overpass made your money by employing slaves halfway around the globe for a buck an hour or less. And you saved not one. Thin. Fucking. Dime of it. Not one. Because nothing compares to you, boy-o.

            I exclude from this anyone born in the late 40′s or early 50′s. They may be “boomer” by technical definition but the mindset was completely different.

            @TheGuy

            Sorry that YOU grew up in that environment but not all people are as lucky as you. My Grandparents as well as my parents raised us differently, thank God. You cannot lump ALL people into one category.

            You also cannot judge the common people by the gov. nor hollywood. Hollywood lives in a glass bubble and have no idea what the real world is like. Same with politicians.

            Your outrage is very clear and I’m sorry if you’ve never experienced any thing nice in life. But don’t criticize me or my people, you don’t know me.

            As for you, you sound EXTREMELY bitter. Don’t take it out on me…

            Also, if you’ve read previous posts, the state of affairs has nothing to do with the general public as a whole. BOTH parties of the Gov. are to blame. Our fate was sealed years ago by the banksters, Rockefellers, Rothschild, Bush’s….

            The point I was trying to make was some thing as simple as saying “yes sir” “no sir” , opening a door for someone, saying THANK YOU , helping a person carry their groceries,
            stuff that some people now a days have no clue to do for other people. With out that, well we loose civility and mannerisms. Just little stuff that might make another person smile…. like you.

My husband was BS with one of the sales guys about the motor homes and he said that they can run from 1 million to 4-5 million. Even the sales rep. thought that it was ridiculous for people to blow their money on them. They instantly depreciate about $300,000 to $500,000 the minute they drive them off the lot. If you’re going to spend that much, buy a HOUSE!! And you’d still have pocket change…

          One can find a very nice used travel trailer/5th wheel/motor home for a good price and in good condition if they would just look. But then again, there are those who have to out do the “Jones’”. They’re the ones we can’t stand.

          That being said, to each their own. And if they want to blow their money instead of passing it on, that’s their business.

        No financial collapse people. The system as it exists works well for the Uber Rich, PTB, and the GB’s. Financial collapse would not serve any of them. Therefore it is totally illogical.

        However, having said that, if for any reason other than war, natural disaster or celestial event, economic collapse occurs, it would be deliberate.

        D-E-L-I-B-E-R-A-T-E.

        The only intent of such an event would be to further impoverish the Middle Class, destroy America, make US economic serfs, shred OUR constitution, and subvert OUR liberties by the Global Fascists in power.

          ALERT; We just had a Hick-up!
          By the numbers, US population 312M, 15% are prepared and prepped-up, 46M, that leaves 266M starving people. How do you feed 266 million starving people in a week or so? Answer; “YOU DON’T.” And these strategic think tanks know it too. There is little doubt they have run these scenarios, that’s what they are paid to do. So what do you suppose happens? The inner cities are going to be absolute pandemonium. Killings are going to be arbitrary and frequent, in the end over food. If you extrapolate out the amount of just food 266M people will consume in a week, it’s almost incalculable. Let alone manageable or even doable. I bet the OBAMAS will be eating good and not missing a meal, not even one! (no MREs there) This will all come down to food and water, point blank! The paradigm we are facing here is NOT men fighting men for a point; this is men fighting to feed their wives and children. You can get no more basic than that. If you are prepping now look to the basics, food, water, protection. You need food and water to protect yourself and you will need to protect yourselves in order to survive. I just love how they lump in all of the extra ways this could come off. Earthquake, hurricane, terrorist attack, financial collapse, blackout, super virus, nuclear fallout. This is a penance as to what the NWO, Progressives, Eugenicist wants, it is a well-known fact through their rants that they have made public that in their belief we are over populated, we can’t feed you and there is a large amount of “ you” needs to die. Really; then get your fat ass up to the front of the line!! Something like this could only end in people being buried in a trench and covered with a bulldozer, unmarked. This would tickle the shit out of the afore mentioned astute groups. This only makes their work less tactful.
          I love the line by DRU; the lack of preparation on your part does not constitute and emergency on mine. Fucking perfect!

            We are overpopulated and most of us will not have a choice in the dying to come. If I get the opportunity I will make sure that it is not just “useless eaters” who will be doing the dying. As far as the elites go, I don’t give a crap that they happen to believe that there are too many of us. There are too many of us; get over it! I disagree over who should die; ultimately the strongest, the fittest, and the most ruthless among us will be the ones who make it through the coming great die-off. The elites might start the ball rolling, but they will not be the ones left standing at the end. Altruism might be a nice ideal to strive for, but when people are starving and the food is gone, altruism will get you and yours killed. Ruthlessness and resourcefulness is what will keep the few alive when the many die-off.

Too much time has been wasted via “can kicking” and other useless B$ type activities. Big problems are most easily solved when tackled early on. It’s a bit like deflecting a meteor from the Earth.

            @ Aunt T. Commie, if post Katrina is any example of what may happen during the next crisis, you can only stick together with other like minded individuals who have prepared for the worst and that requires planning and networking before the SHTF. Even the New Orleans police threw their lot in with the looters and were caught on video committing crimes in uniform. Sticking together is great as long as you’re sticking together with others who do not pose a threat.

            Well, we all know what “hope” is worth as a plan. Aside from that, not ALL of us will be getting through whatever form of SHTF we end up getting. This is why a lot of us prep for multiple problems.

            Those who do not prep have no right to complain if that then causes them problems at some point. It’s all about free will. I do not complain about those who do not prep. That is their choice and they are welcome to make it even if I do not agree with it. Once they have chosen, however, they are subject to the consequences of that choice.

            I will share what I have with my family, of course. I will also share with some of my friends and a few neighbors, particularly those who show up with some useful items of their own. Those who show up empty handed will likely leave the same way.

            Harsh? Perhaps. But then, why should those who take the time and effort and spend resources in order to prep risk the survival of their family in order to help those who did not?

            I like the ideology of your thinking. However; the statistics and percentages are pretty accurate. Almost half of all people (teenagers and up) that are to be considered as a possible threat to someone’s livelihood, are classified as “takers”. They will use up your time,energy, and resources without ever giving back anything or near as much as you gave them. Most people of this type are sneaky and slick. If you let your guard down for a second they are already planning their next smooth move. In a normal world where it is easy to rebound from a loss, we could take a hit or two by playing nice and learn from it and move on; however, in a doomsday situation that one time could spell disaster and or death for you and yours. Keep your guard up at all times my prepping friends.

      I used to be involved with my local community trying to instill in them a sence of preparedness. However as time went by the talk and actions turned mainly to making lists of who has what instead of who can help and how to help those who have the skills that the rest would need. The main plan wasent preparing to handle the problem but prepareing to take from those who had stuff and give to those who didnt have.
      I moved… Im sure I was high on the list of who had the stuff the others wanted.

          When the SHTF, be prepared to have to defend your home and property.

          The recent tornado that hit here has been an eye opener for me. Our neighborhood stuck together. Neighbors were out checking on others just minutes after the tornado to make sure everyone was ok. Others weren’t so fortunate.

          Withen 24 hours of the tornado hitting here in KY, some people in rural areas have reported that people coming by to help (themselves) were stealing stuff from yards. One man had several storage sheds destroyed by the tornado and the belongings scattered all over his yard and field. The next day (yes in broad daylight), he caught a couple guys who pulled up to his yard and started taking things and putting them in their truck. The owner fired his gun and the thieves took off. Now, if the owner has to go to Lowes to get repair items, he makes sure a family member is guarding his property.

        And that’s the main reason I have not attempted to inform my neighbors or organize any kind of community effort in the event of a SHTF situation.

        What ones I have talked to, get all their news from the MSM or FOX…or believe Jesus is going to come back and save them from the boogie man. If you mention preparing for SHTF, they look at you like you’re from another planet. They have a major case of normalcy bias. It hasn’t happened here…therfore it won’t happen here.

        I don’t mind sharing with people. Especially with those who legitimately cannot afford to prep. But I swear that if someone I’ve talked to about prepping, and has blown me off about it, comes to my door wanting a handout when this all goes down, they are going to get the same treatment that a total stranger would get. I don’t suffer fools gladly. The answer they get from me will likely be, “Yeah…well…it sucks to be you. Now turn around go mooch someplace else.”

      Actually, 51% believe a collapse is coming in the next 25 years. Only 17% believe that any catastrophe will happen in less than a year. Preppers differ on why they’re preparing. We can’t know based on the data how many believe a collapse is imminent.

      • On the most basic level, the Federal Reserve has ‘printed’ trillions of dollars… only a tiny fraction of that money has trickled down to the general population. The rest of it has essentially been used to ‘rescue’ banks and related financial interests… This newly printed money has been used to buoy the entire system — trillions of it has made its way into commodity and equity investments… this extra money — monetary inflation, which means more money is chasing fewer goods — is the key reason why we have rising prices in stocks, gas, precious metals, electricity, health care, education, etc etc…

        Some refer to it as the “Meltup”.

          Mac you are right on. And inflation during a slowdown is called stagflation. It’s the scariest thing of all because there are no economic tools to deal with it. You just let it play out. Imagine a scenario where we have double or triple digit inflation and no jobs. it could happen. When savers see inflation what do they do? They take their saving and go chasing after the rather fixed store of good, services, and investments, adding an uncontrollable amount to the money supply in the process. And what happens when those euro banks go bust and have to distribute the trillions the Fed gave them for reserves. That too adds massively to the money supply. The total supply in circulation just isn’t that much right now. Increases like those i describe will stimulate inflation like Argentina, or Weimar. It’s happened before. Fiat money and an uncontrolled monetary authority.

        I remember reading something that tried to explain how the stock market rallies were a non sequitor for gauging the health of our economy. This fallacy was explained because most of the smaller investors were cashing out of the market and putting their money in safe harbor investments and leaving the stock trading to the bigger fish who make larger tradings, thereby having a greater influence on stock market numbers.

        The same thing has been happening in Zimbabwe over the past 10 – 15 years. For example shares in the local brewery were used as an informal currency.

        Ginger, another reason for the market spike is the money poured into it isn’t at the risk of the investers(i.e. banks, Fannie Mae, etc..). Because the money belongs to the tax payer (us). It is like gambling with some one elses money.
        Then if the investers intice smaller companys and individuals to buy into the market, they win twice; the small investers and the bailout money. They’ll sell high then buy low after the bottom falls out and smaller investers have lost it all. Think monopoly.

        The collapse of the dollar would have taken place in 2008, but the “bailout” dollars kicked the can. Everytime we get close, TPTB manipulate people and systems to print more paper $$ and kick the can again. How many times since 2008? As long as they float the debt and keep printing, everything will stay the status quo, but eventually the bubble will burst. If overseas governments decide to accept another form of currency for oil; LOOKOUT! The bubble will burst anyhow. All we can do is adjust our lives as best we can on a personal level.

          The bubble is deflating slowly.

          Real inflation is near 8-10%
          “growth” is 2-3%
          Thats a net loss of roughly 7%. That is economic deflation, but price inflation.

          If the Fed raises rates anytime soon then the housing deflating will only get worse. So no equity in it.

          Food is the real kicker this summer due to oil costs. This will create more debt and defaults for the consumer since people are already living paycheck to paycheck. This in turn will force prices down leading to cheaper products (foreign). And this will lead to fewer jobs in North America. So the spiral continues.

          This will continue until the price of food competes with the price of shelter. At that point all Hell breaks loose. Food or roof. Thefts and tax evasion will be rampant. When taxes are not collected investors will not buy bonds and the bond yield will rise to the point of collapse.

          Wait for Japan. This is the shoe before the US. Most of their debt is internal debt (citizen baby boomer owned). Once those boomer’s cash in their bonds they will have to issue bonds into the world market at a much higher rate than what they are paying currently. Japan will collapse before the States. But once that chatter starts……GET OUT!!

          Fifteen years after the attack, an Israeli pilot approached Liberty survivors and then held extensive interviews with former Congressman Paul N. (Pete) McCloskey about his role. According to this senior Israeli lead pilot, he recognized the Liberty as American immediately, so informed his headquarters, and was told to ignore the American flag and continue his attack. He refused to do so and returned to base, where he was arrested.

          Later, a dual-citizen Israeli major told survivors that he was in an Israeli war room where he heard that pilot’s radio report. The attacking pilots and everyone in the Israeli war room knew that they were attacking an American ship, the major said. He recanted the statement only after he received threatening phone calls from Israel.

          The pilot’s protests also were heard by radio monitors in the U.S. Embassy in Lebanon. Then-U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Dwight Porter has confirmed this. Porter told his story to syndicated columnists Rowland Evans and Robert Novak and offered to submit to further questioning by authorities. Unfortunately, no one in the U.S. government has any interest in hearing these first-person accounts of Israeli treachery. [Washington Report]

      This is going to sound terribly pessimistic, but those numbers seem kind of high to me.

      If I were to talk to 100 random people I know, the percentages would be nowhere near the percentages here.

      I find it difficult to believe that 33% of people have a bug-out bag ready.

        You need to remember that “being prepared” for the average person means having an extra couple cans of Spaghettios in the pantry and a 24 oz bottle of water in their car.

          I had a chat the other day with the local ex mayor who is also a Mormon. He is involved with the church activities and local politics as well. Our conversation was quite deep but the gist of the matter when I asked him about preps and the local congregation; he stunned me with his reply. He said that if the rest of the congregation is like him, and he believes they are, most are not prepared as the church teaches them to be. Now this is a group of people that are taught to be prepared yet most are not.

          When I read the numbers above, I have to believe they are skewed and inflated. Maybe not by NatGeo, but by the respondents to the questions. I do not believe most in this country are anywhere near prepared for any type of SHTF scenario, be it personal or nationwide or global.

          I do not believe that asking 1000+ people will give you an accurate reading as to who is doing what either. And why is it I never get called for these polls? Oh that’s right, I’m on the watch list!

        • It’s not that “Communism” doesn’t work. It does. They ALL work. But it comes down to who is participating and who isn’t. If everyone’s heart and mind is into “making” it work, then it will work. But, they don’t take into account the nature of the weak mind, the mind that is dependent on others, i.e. “CO DEPENDENCY”. It’s those individuals, raised in families where weak minded parents pass down weak minded values to their children, that foster dependency on others which is the Seed for socialism and communism to grow from.

          Communism in it’s ideal form is the perfect system. But for it to truly achieve its ideals, the participants must be filled with maximum inner love and service as to not be concerned about the fruits of their actions. Otherwise, the collective will ultimately turn on itself. There has to be a spiritual base for the system to work. Without it, over time, selfishness and greed will set in as the “have nots”, the “wanna be’s”, based on their codependent upbringing, will bring the system down.

      In my neck of the woods, folks don’t want to wake up. This is an established fact and I’ve been told as much. A conversation with a family member who seemed to be actually be listening and engaged said in closing “Do you really want to live in a world gone completely SHTF”? My answer – “No, I absolutely do not want to ‘survive’ in 3rd world, zombie ridden conditions. I am 50+ and very conditioned to A/C, running hot & cold water, anniversary trips to beautiful state parks, convenience of sugar, flour, and other food stuffs currently available (and thank my particular power that be – the Lord for such). I like my washer / dryer chores done with little effort. I really like hanging-out with my comrades on the WWW. I seriously don’t look forward to a life my grand-folks had to pound out. I’m quite sure I’m made of that fabric, but equally sure I’ll tear much quicker. What I do know after my years among the general population – given the choice – it’s our innate human instinct is to just that – survive. So with that possibility, I wish to be as prepared to make that choice if it’s mine to make. ’nuff said, conversation ended with a ‘hummm’, buzzbuzzzbuz, text msg, gotta go, see ya later aunt’. >>head, fist, desk<>Sigh<< rant off /

      • The phrase ‘end of the world’ originates from the Bible where the Greek word Kosmos is translated ‘world,’ but the primary definition is ‘an apt and harmonious arrangement or constitution, order, government.’ That is why sometimes we read it as TEOTWOWKI (the end of the world as we know it).

        Apocalypse comes from the Greek word Apokalupsis which means a ‘lifting of the veil’ or ‘revelation.’ Even in the Book of Revelation the earth does not end. It is changed.

      Taking these percentages of persons and putting them in context with a complete collapse of the system and a run-out of food with marshal law invoked; anyone living near big cities and at a location that would cause droves of people coming your way to get to rural and mountainous areas; you had better be prepared to defend what little or large you have stored. I hope I never have to face this kind of scenario, but only God knows and He has my back. It won’t take long before people living nearby will start scavagening and sneaking around. Good honest people will turn mean when that little button between the backbone and the stomach gets pushed. It sends a signal to the brain: Work; if there is no work for food.

    38. I always wonder about these “polls” since I’m never polled by these pollsters. Is this “data” real? Did someone get polled here? Or, is this information fabricated based on someone’s agenda? I don’t trust “National Geographic”, a company that’s owned and operated by News Corporation, aka Murdock aka one of TPTB. And, I did some research on this “Kelton Research” company. A “sister” company called Omnibus Company does their “polling” for them. I think both companies are “questionable”. Made Up, Fabricated and their data is made up, a front.

      Do your own research. Look up both companies, see what you come up with. Their sites are very strange and misleading. Very little information provided with their client lists and case studies, at least I couldn’t retrieve much information, i.e. Hard Data.

      Has the data been prefabricated? The question IS, why would they make it up? What’s their agenda?

      And who are these “1007 Nationally representative Americans” that were supposedly polled? Who determines who is “representative”? Were you polled?

      Could it be that “they” are trying to ferret out “those” who might be considered counter productive to the status quo, aka Terrorists within?

      Sorry, but I don’t buy into this one. No questions about the fascist government.

      These sister companies are part of a PsyOps. I’d say they are owned by the Government. Be on your toes, folks.

        I politely gave her my name, confirmed the address & verified that I’m married….

        …I also refused to answer any additional questions!

        She pressed the issue a bit & I simply told her that according to the Constitution, the “CENSUS” is merely a head count & that is all the govt is getting from me and if they don’t like my answers….make an appointment at my abode & I’ll enlighten them (smiling)!!!!!!!!!!!

        …her nervous response was….”No, you’re fine! Have a good day!

      What if PTB manage to keep their status by semi starving/impoverishing the rest of us by any means necessary?I doubt they care about anyone else BUT their fellow UBER-RICH folks(and perhaps not even them).By slowly lowering the “extra” funds we all have(except them)they can keep a tight rein to control the rest of us.
      Just thinking the “END” might be delayed a decade or two.Think Argentina over the last ten years.
      P.S.
      I noticed the Chem Trails on a clear sunny day a few days ago.If not poisoning our air/water,then WTF?

        Put on your tin foil hat if you go outdoors. If you do not have one, you are entitled to a free one.

        As DoD for a surplus one in the Pentagon basement that are left over from Project Blue Book,or check your local peace Surplus Store.

        If you still can’t find them, Google “tin foil hat” and “Sedona” together. You should find a source.

      Funny responses since “nuclear fallout” is ALREADY HAPPENING in Los Angeles.

      And it got 14%…

      I don’t know if this so much speaks to the respondent’s AWARENESS as much as it does to “which disaster movie have I seen lately and what was it about”.

      Maybe only 1% of the population is prepping or even awake, but I work at Cabela’s in Nebraska and in one weekend we sold over 250 firearms, about 40% of our stock of ammunition, most of our freeze dried stocks and more camping and hunting equipment than we did in several previous months. Not everyone is waking up but some are. On the bright side it’s job security and i can keep tabs on the prepping peoples (finding like minded people) and see what the general attitude is.
      Luck all

        Tom Emmer, who ran for Gov of MN in 2010 now has a morning radio show. On more than one occasion he has spoken about all the survivalist “towns” he visited out in the rual areas. Yes, whole small farm towns. He also has told about how retreat sites along the MN Border with Canada are being snapped up by “Wallstreet Types” as survival locations.

      During my two weeks total bed rest, painkillers, no TV, computer or news, it was easy to see the world as la la la la la, nothing is wrong, birds are singing, sky is blue kinda thing.

      It was only when I was able to sit up and get back to the news, that my stress level zoomed. Oh, then I remembered nothing had changed in the world and that I wasn’t nuts for prepping and why does that nurse keep hiding my tin foil hat?!

    50. The IMF NWO.CFR ANTI-CHRIST says:

      “Then, inexplicably, at 2 p.m., unmarked Israeli aircraft began attacking the ship.” [Ledger Enquirer]

      Israel attacked the USS Liberty using UNMARKED AIRCRAFT. This is the single fact which proves Israel knew exactly who they were attacking. Israel’s story is that they thought USS Liberty was an Egyptian ship and therefore a legitimate target of war. Were that true, there would be no reason to attack a supposedly Egyptian ship with unmarked aircraft. The only possible reason to use unmarked aircraft to attack the ship is that Israel knew it was an American ship and intended to sink it, then to blame the attack on Egypt.

      Moorer, who as top legal council to the official investigation is in a position to know, agrees that Israel intended to sink the USS Liberty and blame Egypt for it, thus dragging the United States into a war on Israel’s behalf. This seems to be a common trick of Israel. Starting with the Lavon affair, through the USS Liberty, to the fake radio transmitter that tricked Reagan into attacking Libya, to potentially 9-11 itself, Israel’s game is to frame Arabs and set them up as targets for the United States.

      The official US investigation is discredited. And with it, every claim of innocence for Israel that relied on the official investigation as a source.

      The real question facing the American people is why the US Government seems more concerned with protecting Israel after they are caught playing these dirty tricks, rather than doing something to convince Israel not to kill any more Americans.
      “Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It’s classified information.” — US official quoted in Carl Cameron’s Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring and its connections to 9-11.

      “at least 25% of Americans – fully 80 million – have taken no active steps to prepare themselves for disaster because they simply don’t believe it’s a possibility.”

      Yep. This is what’s called the “normalcy bias”
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Normalcy_bias

      In short it means THEY’RE SCREWED and preppers ain’t.
      We can’t all make it and nature favors the prepared and informed…

      As for “next 25 years”, yeah…forget anything beyond the next 24 months. This crisis is here now not some far off vision. If you don’t get that then go sit with the normalcy bias group.
      The sky is blue, everything’s ok…

      This is why I don’t care that I gave up my home, I can be better prepared with far less by being highly mobile and preping with smaller thing such as water cleaning pills, seeds, small dual use tools/weapoms to make other weapons. The rest can be stolen from all the dumbasses that don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground. Then I can come back and the moron out, not that the laws of nature give him the right to survival, but I can’t see anyone suffer.
