This Is Such A Dangerous Time In Our History

    This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. 

    If you feel like global events are about to hit a dramatic turning point, you are definitely not alone.  Lately, I have been hearing from so many people that are feeling such a sense of dread about the days that are ahead of us.  It kinds of reminds me of the waning days of 2019.

    If you go back and review my articles and my interviews from that period, you will see that I repeatedly warned that I had such a bad feeling about 2020.  At the time, that didn’t make a lot of sense to some people, because life was still relatively normal.  But then the COVID pandemic came along and the world went completely nuts.  Well, now I am sensing another huge wave of trouble, and countless others are feeling the exact same way.

    Normally, I tend to focus my articles on things that just happened in the news.  But today I want to talk about the bigger picture because we have reached such a dangerous time in our history.  The events of the past couple of years have put us on a very alarming trajectory, and I believe that we are rapidly approaching a point of no return.

    There are still a lot of people out there that believe that some sort of magic solution will suddenly be found and life will revert to normal.  Sadly, that isn’t going to happen.  Nobody has a “silver bullet”, and men on white horses are not going to come riding in to save us.

    At this moment, the stage is being set for so many of the things that I warned about in Lost Prophecies and 7 Year Apocalypse.  Great natural disasters are occurring all over the planet, extreme weather events are playing havoc with worldwide crop production, global hunger is on the rise, we are facing a supply chain crisis of epic proportions, and I have written numerous articles in recent weeks about the growing shortages that we are witnessing.

    Meanwhile, the pandemic continues to rage on, and now we are being told that this virus will be with us indefinitely.  Of course many believe that how national governments have responded to the pandemic has been even worse than the pandemic itself.  We are seeing civil unrest and mass protests all over the globe as ordinary citizens lash out against the alarming rise of authoritarianism all around us.  We have seen so much chaos and death over the past couple of years, and there will be so much more in the years ahead.  Millions upon millions of people have already died, but what we have seen so far is just the tip of the iceberg.

    As I discussed a few days ago, this is also a time of wars and rumors of wars.  Needless to say, military conflict will take many of our current problems to an entirely new level.  Sadly, most Americans have absolutely no idea that we are moving toward war even now.

    But most Americans can see the product shortages that are growing all around us.  At this point, the supply chain crisis has gotten so bad that the mainstream media can’t stop talking about it.  On a very basic level, our economic infrastructure is breaking down, and this is something that is happening all over the world.

    Originally we were told that things would be “getting back to normal” by this point, but now we are being told that the shortages are going to be getting even worse in the months ahead.  Earlier today, I came across a video in which Glenn Beck detailed why he is extremely concerned about this.  I think that Glenn did a really good job of communicating the urgency of the crisis that we are now facing, and I hope that people will share his video with as many people as they can.

    There are some that have used the word “hell” to describe the past couple of years, but the truth is that they aren’t even worth comparing to what is still ahead of us.

    But no matter what comes along, you can get through this.

    I have heard from so many people that are scared about what is to come, and it is okay, to be honest about our emotions.  If you truly understand the bigger picture, the gravity of what we are dealing with will definitely weigh on you.  But there is no reason to be afraid.  You were born for such a time as this, and you were placed at this specific moment in human history for a reason.

    Since I write about such difficult topics, some people out there have suggested that I must be deeply depressed.  But the truth is that my wife and I are not depressed at all.  We are not on any pills, we don’t have to see any psychologists and we don’t walk around in a state of gloom all the time.

    That is because we know who we are, we know where we are going and we understand how the story ends.  All of human history has been building up to a grand crescendo, and we get to be here for it.

    There is no other time in all of human history that I would have rather lived than right here, right now.

    But if your life is defined by the system that the elite have established, and if what you care about are the material possessions that the system has provided for you, then the years ahead are going to be exceedingly painful for you.

    Because the truth is that the system is dying.

    Everything that can be shaken will be shaken, and we are going to see horrors that are far beyond what most people would dare to imagine right now.

    But for those that are living for the things that really matter, this will be an incredibly exciting time to be alive.

    If you have not been paying much attention to global events, now is the time for you to wake up.  So many of the pieces of the puzzle are coming together simultaneously, and so many of the major things that the watchmen have been warning about are on the verge of taking place.

    I will have so much more to say about all of this in the days ahead.  Be strong and keep the fire burning, because the times that are approaching are going to greatly challenge all of us.

      1. Glenn Beck is right about shortages, but he blames it on central planning and thinks the free market would solve the problems. The real problem is lack of cheap energy be it coal, oil, or natgas and even hydropower. It’s happening everywhere, not just centrally planned economies. It’s happening in Europe, in India, in the UK, in Uzbekistan, in Brazil, and in China, among others. It’s coming here.

        The free market cannot fix a lack of resources. It can control the price and supply if the resource is readily available, but even then, a high price tanks economies. Easy and cheap energy is gone. The low hanging fruit was picked long ago. Now the good thermal coal is mostly in deep underground mines that are not profitable to mine. Brown coal is available but has less BTUs.

        The easy oil is gone and the super fields are depleting with no replacement reserves being found. Scott Sheffield, CEO of Pioneer Resources, the largest producer in the Texas Permian at 360,000 barrels a day, recently said that US shale drillers cannot contain oil prices any longer. “It’s really under OPEC control” he said. The shale has been pumped out in a 10 year orgy of drilling and frac’ing and unpayable debt. It’s over. US production is on the downside of Hubbert’s Curve. Saudi Arabia has been injecting seawater into Ghawar for years to keep the pressure up. It cannot make up the difference. World oil is now also on the backside of Hubbert’s curve.

        But…but…the US has lots of natural gas you say. It does, but since DC approved the export of natgas back in the mid 2000s, the price and supply is mostly dictated by world price and demand. If US companies can ship it overseas as LNG at a better profit than here, they will do it. That’s the free market. US customers will be screwed on price and possibly even supply. This is what Glenn Beck is calling for. Whoever is willing to pay more will get the supply. But, of course, any limits to the free market are a no no, so people here will freeze.

        • The world is pretty much a dog eat dog world, morality is nonexistent, except for some of us citizens, we have been sold out buy big business and ALL politicians for a long time and until we the people are ready to stand up and throw these evil ones out, things will only continue to decline.

        • Most people haven’t a clue how the world economy and finance function. As an example, people are happy to take crumbs from the master’s table (food stamps, coronavirus payments etc) that are paid for with debt and printed money. A trick governments around the world do all the time (think Africa) but it has to be paid one way or another. The most common way this is done is through exports. Look at any country carrying vast amounts of debt and which has exceeded its productive contribution to the world. Market forces mean they have to sell whatever they have first to global markets: oil, fruit, minerals, wheat etc. The US is now in this situation. The US must give world markets first dibs on gas, oil, food etc. before Americans. Now, if you can afford to shop at Whole Foods then you will always have access to high quality produce. But if you are poorer then you will only get whatever Walmart can bring in.

      2. Great points, but your conclusion should also include the areas of the economy influenced by other factors. Most folks would concede that govt. meddling affects labor costs, access to raw materials from far away, component (think computer chips) supply from other countries, and price (like fuel taxes) which must be considered when production rates & the products final price is computed.

        I think “central planning” by big govt. fools contributes enormously to shortages & other economic problems.

      3. Winkie don’t surf.

      4. Thanks for the article, Michael. It made me feel good about the future. I stupidly got the vaccine after buckling to pressure from family. Now I pretty much feel like I am already dead. But what really matters to me is that people still have a future of liberty. The masters of the old system can lash out as it is in its death throes. But the future will not be theirs.

      5. The State and its minions have created a host of absurd new propagandistic terms in the last few years to control citizen behavior like “social distancing”. I won’t get into all the bizarre new terms but one of the latest ones is “domestic t*rr*r*st.” We all know the gov’t is irrevocably corrupt and incompetent, we’ve seen it again and again. One of the few things the gov’t does well is utilize violence. The State is a criminal organization, it is institutionalized mob rule, and the use/threat of violence is their greatest “asset”. It surely realizes it may resort sooner or later to utilize this asset to further impose its illegitimate will on the remainder of non-compliant citizens.
        Even with all the new mandates, edicts, decrees, rules, propaganda, etc. the gov’t has still not been able to intimidate or coerce 100% of the population to fully conform to its will, maybe half the people have. One example is mass vaccination. So its new strategy may be to push and push and push in an overbearing way on particular groups of non-compliant citizens. Then, if/when citizens continue to rebuff the gov’t, the gov’t will see its opportunity to unleash violence on them and and because of this charge citizens as “domestic t*rr*r*sts”, even though citizens themselves exercise no violence. However, the State calls this good gov’t.
        These domestic t*rr*r*sts include mothers who don’t want their children to wear masks all day or don’t want their children reading grossly immoral literature in class, or their children being taught to hate themselves.
        The gov’t has stated other types of domestic t*rr*r*sts can include non-vaxxers, people who place bumper stickers on their vehicles with a message the gov’t doesn’t like, parents who don’t agree with their local school boards, and people who publicly quote the Constitution and/or the Bill of Rights. Dangerous people indeed.

      6. Vague warnings and dire proclamations. I heard all this during the Kenyan’s “presidency” and stocked up food in 2012. Nothing. No collapse. Ten years on and the same scams, the same crooked politicos, the same false prophets. He even buys into the fake virus. Very sad.
        Moving on ….

        • There’s been vague warnings and proclamations since at least the early 1960’s.
          Anyone that was around in the early 60’s heard the vague warnings and proclamations from the so called “doomsday cults.”
