collapse of society

  1. Coronavirus
    This is from the City-Data forum. They banned me years ago. They didn't like some photo I put up there. But that is not the deal. Thrillobyte make some interesting points. No telling how this will all work out. I do know that there is no gaurantee that countries live on in perpetuity. And if the...
  2. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    Some of these things I will miss if this gets big enough and we decide to lock down (until it panders out). Right now I'm savoring a spicy thigh sandwich from Church's Chicken. Took my kid to the leisure pool last Thursday. Going to a movie this Sunday. If this Ebola thing gets worse and things...
  3. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    I have noticed a surprising (to me) number of people here on SB who seem relatively unconcerned about an escalation in the US. I dont want an argument thread, but rather am just interested in your reasoning if you are unconcerned or only mildly concerned. I would find that information...
  4. DIY - Do It Yourself
    a hat tip to Yankeeprepper on YouTube, it details the works of Ernesto Orozo and the some the tech that has been developed in Cuba in the wake of US sanctions and and a shortage of available technology, and his book;The Technological Disobedience and Mr. Orozo's site and other works...
  5. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    Interesting article about why and how nations collapse. There is one sentence that I think rings true today, http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2012/06/18/10_reasons_countries_fall_apart Our education system is a tilted playing field. Kids that have talent for something besides being...
  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I've noticed that many people on here prep because they see a scenario where global economic collapse is the main theme. I'm a with many people on here that the collapse has already started. It's been a slow drop for a while and will quickly pick up pace and head off a cliff. When mass...
  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    A few weeks ago a friend's son was given a homework assignment for a Sociology type class in High School. The friend thought it an interesting assignment and forewarded it to me. The assignment is geared towards a Zombie apocalypse ( surely due to the popularity of zombies amoungst youth...
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    The Idea behind this thread is to be kind of quick list of web cites that forum users go to when they need to know whats going on out in the world. Or where to find essentials for disaster preparedness. I like to look at things on a map and I found the following to be both that and very...

  10. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I found this article to be interesting http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2011/10/30/niall-ferguson-how-american-civilization-can-avoid-collapse.html From the article, I got that cultures are pushed to a tipping point, and then there is a rapid collapse. But building up to that point might...
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I know there has always been doomsday forecasters, but these messages are horrifically specific. This is from Michael Ruppert. I really believe him, I think we're in the final weeks.
  12. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    In a complete collapse of society how long do you plan to survive? I myself would like to think I would be out there for a long time but I doubt that would be the case... What do you think???
  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    The dark ages is the period of time right after the fall of the roman empire. It is as if your shared human history went blank. From about 476 to 1000 AD, very little writing or history survived. It was as if our history and development went backwards in time. With todays society, what...
