Venezuela is a diverse, resource-rich country with a universal high standard of living … until recently. The ME Generation took it down.
Today it is an unmitigated disaster; completely broken down.
This post is not going into those details. They are everything apocalyptic novels write about, but very, very real. There is no food, no water, no civility, no security.
Daisy Luther of The Organic Prepper brings it home with the following essay.

Venezuela Is Out of Food: Here’s What an Economic Collapse Really Looks Like
By Daisy Luther
Venezuela is out of food.
After several years of long lines, rationing, and shortages, the socialist country does not have enough food to feed its population, and the opposition government has declared a “nutritional emergency.” This is just the most recent nail in the beleaguered country’s slow, painful economic collapse.
Many people expect an economic collapse to be shocking, instant, and dramatic but, really, it’s far more gradual than that. It looks like empty shelves, long lines, desperate government officials trying to cover their tushes, and hungry people. […]
Silver prices are far below simple ore extraction costs. Refined and minted silver is over twice the price currently reflected in a heavily manipulated market.
Well over 90% of the COMEX transactions used to determine the market price are of paper promises rather than solid silver.
Manipulators trade extraordinary volumes of silver vaporware to keep the price artificially low. This props up the fiat paper money market AND allows the elites to continue accumulating silver (and gold) at artificially low prices.
The problems for them are that silver has hundreds of industrial uses, demand is far greater than supply and people are demanding physical silver as a reliable store of wealth.

Gerald Celente is one of, if not THE premier trends forecasters in the world. His insights and disgust with the globalists can be a bit of a handicap when his passionate, justifiable hatred takes wing in colorful speech. I like that part too, because he expresses what I feel towards the psychopathic ruling elite in ways I feel without expressing strongly enough.
Nevertheless, my wife and I enjoy watching Gerald being interviewed on other people’s programs where he limits his expression to what is more socially acceptable to a broader audience.
Celente’s Trends Research Institute puts sociology, economics, politics and history all together because that is how the world works. His record for predicting The Big Things is impressive.
It is easy to slip into the everyday. We have to. The economy, culture, government and every aspect of our world has marched to the brink of disaster for most of our lives. Numerous tipping points have come and gone without The Great Fall occurring.
Many have moved from preparedness back into the world of bread and circuses. It is time for you to return to the smart side.
Let me rephrase that: It is time for you to watch the two YouTube videos I clipped into this article.
They are very well produced and give a great picture of where we are today politically, culturally and economically.

Something’s Going on with the BDI… and some sites are saying “The Atlantic has no Cargo Ships!!”… so, come on, now… “What’s Going On??” Posted on 2016/01/10 by kauilapele
First of all, I suggest that each one who reads this, please put on your “Higher Discernment” glasses, and look beyond statements in the articles pointed out here which imply the “world is ending so go into your bunkers and don’t come out”. We know the old paradigm oil-based fiat-currency economies have to collapse… eventually. Perhaps that “eventually” time has come… now please read on.
Okay, so […]
The Whole Thing is About To Come Unhinged: 6 Ways To Prepare For the Next Collapse Tess Pennington Ready Nutrition
Since the last great recession of 2008, economic forecasters and preppers alike have warned of the bottom dropping out of the economy. The proverbial doom prediction of “it’s not if, but when” was used for years as a call to action to get ready for a much larger economic disaster. Well folks, it seems that history is repeating itself. This week, George Soros cautioned the public of an impending economic crisis.
Speaking at an economic forum in Sri Lanka’s capital, Colombo, he told an audience that China is struggling to find a new gro Category: preparing, The Great Fall |
