Anyone who has been involved in alternative geopolitical and economic analysis for a decent length of time understands that the establishment power structure thrives according to its ability to either exploit natural crises, or to engineer fabricated crises.
This is not that hard to comprehend, but for some reason there are a lot of people out there who simply assume that global sea-change events just happen â€œat random,â€ that the elites are stupid or oblivious, and that all outcomes are a matter of random chance rather than being directed or manipulated.Â I call these people â€œintellectual idiots,â€ because they believe they are applying logic to every scenario but they are sabotaged by an inherent bias which causes them to deny the potential for â€œconspiracy.â€
To clarify, their logic folds in on itself and becomes faulty.Â They believe themselves objective, but they abandon objectivity when they staunchly refuse to consider the possibility of covert influence by organized special interests. When you internally dismiss the possibility of a thing, no amount of evidence will ever convince you of its reality.Â This is how the â€œsmartestâ€ people in the room can end up being the dumbest people in the room.
In the survivalist community there is a philosophy â€“ there is no such thing as a crisis for those who are prepared. This is true for prepared individuals as much as it is true for prepared communities and prepared nations. The only way a society can fall is when it becomes willfully ignorant of potential outcomes and refuses to organize against them.
By extension, it would make sense that by being prepared for a particular crisis or outcome an individual or group could not only survive, but also profit.
