***After a bit of small talk, I realized they had no interest in the information I had prepared about the future of technology. They had come with questions of their own...Which region will be less affected by the coming climate crisis: New Zealand or Alaska? Is Google really building Ray Kurzweil a home for his brain, and will his consciousness live through the transition, or will it die and be reborn as a whole new one? Finally, the CEO of a brokerage house explained that he had nearly completed building his own underground bunker system and asked: “How do I maintain authority over my security force after the Event?”

The Event. That was their euphemism for the environmental collapse, social unrest, nuclear explosion, unstoppable virus, or Mr Robot hack that takes everything down.***

super-rich prep stuff
(mentioned on Rush Limbaugh)

how do I keep my security staff under control after teotwawki? I ask myself that.

***That’s when it hit me: at least as far as these gentlemen were concerned, this was a talk about the future of technology. Taking their cue from Elon Musk colonizing Mars, Peter Thiel reversing the ageing process, or Sam Altman and Ray Kurzweil uploading their minds into supercomputers, they were preparing for a digital future that had a whole lot less to do with making the world a better place than it did with transcending the human condition altogether and insulating themselves from a very real and present danger of climate change, rising sea levels, mass migrations, global pandemics, nativist panic, and resource depletion. For them, the future of technology is really about just one thing: escape.***

well if the super-rich are prepping, maybe it will filter down to the mainstream.

Just like the movie, only the rich will board the super boat and ride out the fiery flood about to destroy everything. Why? Because they can afford to pay for it! Everyone else can fend for themselves.

I noticed the guy didn't provide answers to the question "How do I keep my security people loyal (when money is no good)?"

I'm thinking the guy/gal that gets to the fully stocked bunker first is locking the door - money is no good.

Got to come out sometime, and what they find, who knows. I would think the guards would have a hand up on things, with the firepower they would need, to fend off the hoards wanting in, and like you say, first one in would be hard to get back out.
