“Never let a serious crisis go to waste.” – The former chief of strategy for the Clinton administration, Rahm Emmanuel, once said.
That’s because in a crisis the poor get poorer, and the rich get richer.
Now, I’m not saying they sit around praying for doom and gloom, but surely, they will profit when the “opportunity” presents itself. The truth is if you want a heads up before the next crisis hits, all you have to do is take a look at what the 1% of the 1% are doing because their access to information is second to none.
Take for example the 3rd richest man on the planet, Mr. Bill Gates. After buying up approximately 242,000 acres of farmland valued at more than $690 million, he now holds the title of the “largest private owner of agricultural fields in America”. Oddly, he was never a farmer. Nor does he have any background in farming. So, what gives? Could it be he knows something we don’t?
Scarcity means control. And if a nationwide crisis were to occur, those who manage and distribute the food would control the population. Is Mr. Gates privy to information on some impending apocalyptic event in the near future? Of course, this is only speculation. No one really knows what’s in Mr. Gates’ head, except the man himself. But it is dubious, to say the least.
What’s Up With Zuck?
While we’re on the subject of a possible doomsday scenario, let’s take a look at what’s going on with the world’s 5th richest man, Mark Zuckerberg. In a recent article, journalist Guthrie Scrimgeour detailed how he’s building a 1,400-acre compound complete with an underground shelter that’s equipped with its own energy, food, water, and what appears to be a blast-resistant door. It seems like he’s getting ready for something BIG. But in all fairness, who really knows what he knows? Perhaps, along with his newfound love for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Mr. Zuckerberg also picked up prepping as a pastime hobby.
It’s Time to Prepare!
Few of us, if any, have the resources to survive a global cataclysm in the form of an inbound asteroid, a nuclear holocaust, or a 90% kill rate pathogen. But a food shortage, a long-term blackout, or even widespread social unrest are all survivable.
But you have to prepare. And the sooner the better. Take matters into your own hands today and break free from food, water, and energy dependency. Implementing just a handful of these 70+ DIY self-sufficiency projects will give you peace of mind knowing you’re ready to face the next crisis and save you some hard-earned cash right away!
