Preppers Shall Inherit the Earth

When some of us look at our current world situation, we see a catastrophic human crisis emerging within view. If you are not seeing what is emerging, YOU ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTION.

There are several key issues that are coming together to ensure a Darwinian culling of the human species and that my friends is no exaggeration.

Currently, we as a global species, are relying on dwindling global resources coming from distant places for our day to day survival and many are completely unaware of how fragile that supply chain is. We take for granted how the very essentials of daily life magically appear in our local stores for our thoughtless consumption. How our food is grown or raised, how it makes it's journey from the farm to the table, how clean water gets into our homes and how cheap reliable energy powers our everyday lives without a thought.

What of our ability to purchase those goods from others? Our everyday life is consumed with the activity of making money. Fore it is, we are told, with money that we can acquire what we need for our survival and amusement. Our global system has made it so, without money, without this paper, that buys less and less with every ticking second, that we find ourselves in the "civilized world" unable to survive without it for long.

It has become very clear, to those that are paying attention, that the path humanity is on, is headed for a cliff. Human being naturally have an inclination to avoid the unpleasant. When most people face something unpleasant in their lives, like a bad relationship or a situation that no longer serves them, they most often put off, ignore or distract the mind with behaviors or mind altering substances hoping that the situation shall somehow right itself without facing difficult choices. Of course, this type of denial is psychologically harmful, and the reason for most depression, as we live our lives ignoring rather than facing difficulties in our personal lives with meaningful corrections that will lead to a more satisfying situation.

Our society is but a mere reflection of our collective inclinations. We, as a species, have a very serious situations in our world that we need to face but the collective response is increasingly that of denial, myopia, apathy and our choice to ignore the perils that await our near future in the hopes that they too may find magical solutions that do not exist. Our politicians obsessed at kicking the can till the next election fail to serve us because we, as people of our respective nations, fail to serve ourselves in societies where ignorance is bliss.

What I am about to say is not fear mongering, but a call to all to take a long hard look at the danger that approaches so that we can act with reason and not react with blind fear. If we as people are fully aware of the risks we can act proactively and mitigate those risks with intelligent thought and appropriate actions.

That being said, I would like you to consider the following issues:

The global financial system, which is based on every increasing debt, is on the verge of total collapse. The Dollar and all the currencies around the world are quickly losing their value and thus what we are able to buy with the same amount of currency becomes less and less.

It is very likely in the near future that the Dollar will become worthless as a means of exchange in the global market place.

Our leaders will fix this, won't they? Why, they have a solution, don't they? Just raise the debt ceiling, right?

Who will lend to us, should we decide to take on more debt? In order to borrow there must be a lender. Who might that be? Everyone is loaded with debt? All the currencies are losing value. Why should anyone hold anything that buys less or becomes worthless the longer you hold it?

What happens when countries who sell us things stop taking dollars or the items they sell become prohibitively expensive?

How will we import the things we need when others decide not to sell us these things or we can no longer afford them?

Well we will bring it in ourselves, won't we?


We need energy in the form of fuel to bring items from afar. The farther the item the higher the energy costs to acquire them. But wait, we don't have enough natural energy supplies to sustain the system because we must import it at a cost that will be getting greater. Yes folks, what happens now?

It is quite clear that we have a dilemma rapidly developing in our world.

Things will magically stop appearing at the local stores. Power and goods will become increasingly expensive and unattainable. Unemployment will continue to increase to the point were government will not have the resources to manage or help.

So what are we to do?

There is a growing movement of people who are taking proactive steps to control their destiny. These people, dubbed "Preppers", are people from all walks of life, all political persuasions, all ethnicities and races who have come to the conclusion that danger is in fact a likely reality in the near future. These people , by no means, have all the answers to the many problems that face us or a crystal ball to see into the future, but they are quite sure they should not leave their well being and the well being of their families in the hand of their less than competent leaders. They have seen the writing on the wall and prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

These people are storing food and water for themselves and their families in case of some unforeseen event that may interrupt their supply of life's necessities. These people are stocking up in items that may help them in a world unlike the world we have today. The items they store are not items which need disposable parts but items that have served their ancestors in a time before life's current conveniences. Some are even planning beyond food storage as the length of such a crisis may be far longer than their supplies will last. Many who can, are migrating to places were they will be able to sustain themselves with livestock and planted harvests. These people are re educating themselves with information in the art of self sufficiency that has been lost to this generation. They are buying weapons to defend themselves from the lawlessness that would ensue in the absence of law enforcement.

People who can not leave their urban environments are growing rooftop gardens and keeping rabbits and chickens in an attempt to offer some renewable source of nutrition in addition to their food sources. Goats have become more common in the suburbs as a reliable alternative to dairy sources. People are becoming proactive because unconventional times require unconventional solutions. These people are becoming less and less fringe and more and more mainstream. The people are becoming more and more aware that our leaders have no such solution and the world is quickly headed to a global disaster of epoch proportions.

When the dust settles, those people called Preppers, shall inherit the earth.

Global Architects Anticipated Violent Response to Globalization

The political outlook of Oslo terror suspect Anders Behring Breivik was revealed in his 1,500 page manifesto. Breivik ranted about multiculturalism and expressed anti-islamic views in light of a growing immigrant population in Norway. While this attack displays hallmarks of a staged event, it opens up a wider picture of advancing globalization and the global architects anticipation of true violent resistance.

"further progress will require greater American sacrifices"

Globalization and trends to world governance have become regular headlines throughout the world. As these trends continue, resistance to losses of sovereignty and globalization are increasing. This is coming as little surprise to the social planners who have foreseen the rise of world government, and actively participated in its formation.

Zbigniew Brzezinski admitted in his book, Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era, that the formation of the world system would require “sacrifices” on part of Americans that will harm America’s favorable position in the world. Brzezinski states,

“The nation-state is gradually yielding its sovereignty… In the economic-technological field, some international cooperation has already been achieved, but further progress will require greater American sacrifices. More intensive efforts to shape a new world monetary structure will have to be undertaken, with some consequent risk to the present relatively favorable American position.”

As America stands on the brink of default, the United States position in the world power structure is falling dramatically. $16 trillion has been looted from the country to secretly bail out foreign banks.

The United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense stated in 2007 that “…growing urban under-classes are likely to pose an increasing threat to social order and stability, as the burden of acquired debt and the failure of pension provision begins to bite.”

James P. Muldoon, Jr., Senior Fellow of the Center for Global Change and Governance at Rutgers University, writes in The Architecture of Global Governance that the transition to the international system will emerge out of ‘chaos’,

“For some, the disarray of traditional relationships in international affairs indicates a dangerous deterioration of the international order and portends collapse of the system into chaos or anarchy… an inevitable consequence of the transformation of the international system into a global system. In some respects, both are right. The international order has indeed deteriorated into ‘disorder’ in large measure, but there is growing evidence that a global system is emerging out of this ‘chaos.’”

What better way to frame a debate than to demonize your opponent?

This is exactly what happened in Canada in 2007 when protesters rallying against the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North Amerca (SPP) were infiltrated by disguised policemen. They began throwing rocks at their fellow cops in an attempt to frame the peaceful crowd. The Quebec provincial police later admitted to infiltrating the group.

We cannot fall into the trap of agent provocateurs, for the act of violent resistance will only empower this system further. Peaceful action and a successful information warfare campaign on part of the alternative media are our best tools.

The Crossroads of History are Upon us

An era of “Absolute totalitarian global control,” an “Age of Transitions”; The mysterious “Singularity.” It has been written that “We can no more imagine the political order of this new world than a group of chimpanzees in the forest can comprehend what goes on among humans in a nearby village.” We have approached the crossroads of history. The choices that we make now – on every level of society – will shape the road that we choose to embark upon.

A Scientific Dictatorship is operating under national security, outside of public scrutiny. Technocrats with access to undisclosed future technology and classified intelligence are making decisions on public policy without debate. The “two souls” of the world, one that fully embraces the untrammeled expansion of technology, and the other that holds on to “outmoded” ideas of faith and tradition are at odds. Fred Charles Ikle, Undersecretary of Defense for Policy under President Reagan, outlines this divide in his book Annihilation from Within.

“Unabomber” Ted Kacynski’s attacks are a vivid example of the societal chasm that Ikle is speaking of. Just today “anti-tech extremists” opposed to nanotechnology sent letter bombs to academics in Mexico. According to Mexico State Attorney General Alfredo Castillo, “The ITS is a movement that, in accordance with its ideals, opposes any development of neo- or nanotechnology anywhere in the world, and they are linked to attacks in several different countries of Europe, including Spain and France.”

C. Dale Walton, writing in Geopolitics and the Great Powers in the Twenty-first Century, states that countries which hold on to ethical systems which hold back development of revolutionary technologies will lose strategic ground.

Globalization is expanding in lock step with the technological revolution, yet another issue sparking opposition from around the world. In truth, the elites constructing this global system have anticipated violent resistance, and have actively enabled – and staged – such violence. Out of chaos emerges greater control. In the words of H. G. Wells, writing in his 1940 book The New World Order,

“…when the struggle seems to be drifting definitely towards a world social democracy, there may still be very great delays and disappointments before it becomes an efficient and beneficent world system. Countless people … will hate the new world order, be rendered unhappy by the frustration of their passions and ambitions through its advent and will die protesting against it. When we attempt to evaluate its promise, we have to bear in mind the distress of a generation or so of malcontents…”

The recent Norway terror attacks were held up by the media as an example of an extremist response to increasing immigration. The Wall Street Journal, reporting on the massive unrest in the U.K., admitted that globalization has played a key role in creating the circumstances leading up to the present riots. The article also admits that the artificial booms in housing were created as a smokescreen for bankers to engage in massive looting, giving a sense of false prosperity to the new middle class. As reported,

“The middle classes only tolerated this,” Albert Edwards of Societe Generale notes, “because central bankers created housing booms to keep the impoverished middle classes borrowing and spending to give them the illusion of prosperity and stop them from revolting.”
The crossroads are indeed upon us. Every indicator from all branches of society are pointing to more unrest in response to a variety of issues that will touch the lives of everyone on the planet. As violent acts are committed or staged by the establishment, more people will demand greater and greater government control in the name of protection from the revolutionaries.

The U.S. Military's Plan for London-Like Riots

Follow NewAmericaNow on Twitter

With British Prime Minister David Cameron authorizing the use of rubber bullets and water canons in wake of the turbulent London riots spreading through Britain, questions have been raised about how authorities in the U.S. would respond to a similar domestic disturbance threatening the nation’s stability. According to National Journal‘s White House correspondent Marc Ambinder the U.S. already has a game plan in place. “If what happened in London ever happened in the US, the military has plans — CONPLAN 3501 and 3502 — to suppress the ‘insurrection,’ hetweeted. The mysterious reference to a numbered military plan generated a flurry of interest on Twitter as NPR host Michele Norris shot back:”I want to know more about the military’s plan to suppress any potential ‘insurrection.’– CONPLAN 3501 and 3502????”

Interestingly, the CONPLAN (which stands for an “operation plan in concept format” at the Pentagon) Ambinder referenced is a popular subject among conspiracy theorists and critics of martial law. According to the public policy organization, CONPLAN 3502 is the U.S. military’s plan for assisting state and local authorities in the event of a riot or major civil disturbance: “Tasks performed by military forces may include joint patrolling with law enforcement officers; securing key buildings, memorials, intersections and bridges; and acting as a quick reaction force.”

It derives its constitutional backing from Article I, Section 8 stating that “Congress shall have power… to provide for calling forth the Militia to execute laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections, and repel Invasions” and is rumored to have been activated during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, during the 1999 Seattle WTO riots and during the 1992 Rodney King riots in Los Angeles. But, according to Nate Jones at the National Security Archive, “because historic Garden Plot activity was classified and current activity likely remains so, it is difficult to discern exactly how many times Garden Plot was evoked.” What jarred Jones upon looking at internal military documents, were the “indicators of potential violence,” which were especially racially oriented:

According to Global Security, the federal government’s power to control civil disturbances was increased in 1970. Here’s an outline of what that involved:

375,000 National Guardsmen and 14,000 Army Reservists had been trained in riot control as the year closed. The Army National Guard conducted, at the expense of regular training, sixteen hours of refresher civil disturbance training. Some states also carried out civil disturbance command post exercises in conjunction with local and state civil authorities. The Army Reserve had three infantry brigades which were part of the federal military contingency force for the control of civil disturbances. These units also conducted sixteen hours of refresher civil disturbance training at the expense of primary training. This additional responsibility of the Reserve Components called for their immediate availability in times of natural disasters, civil disturbances, and other emergencies.

Update: Ambinder also points to an Army slideshow detailing more about CONPLAN 3501. One of the slides has a breakdown of what army officers are in charge of which areas of the country. Click the link to see the whole slideshow.

Warning Against Empire

John Quincy Adams, Secretary of State in the administration of President James Monroe, offered a toast to his native America on July 4, 1821. The Republic was yet young, just 45 years after declaring its independence of Great Britain. The glories of its destiny were mainly to come. But the glories foreseen by Adams, the son of America’s second President and destined to be its sixth, were not triumphs of conquest, but rather the majesty of a nation leading truly by the force of example instead of the example of force.
For America, said Adams, with the same voice by which it spoke itself into existence, similarly held forth to other lands the “hand of honest friendship, of equal freedom, of generous reciprocity. She has uniformly spoken among them, though often to heedless and often to disdainful ears, the language of equal liberty, of equal justice and of equal rights. She has in the lapse of nearly half a century, without a single exception, respected the independence of other nations while asserting and maintaining our own.”

Alas, respecting the independence of other nations has not been the hallmark of American foreign policy in the post-World War II era, and even less so in the 20 years since the demise of the Soviet Union. As for our own independence, we have been surrendering it, piece by piece, to the United Nations, to the World Bank, to the International Monetary Fund, and to myriad other international organizations we have created to perpetuate our dependence on foreign rulers, foreign alliances, and foreign capital to keep our nation going. We have all but made of America a debtors’ prison, enslaving future generations with a level of debt that will force them to choose between lives of crushing poverty or national bankruptcy and a stain on the honor of the United States of America that will last for decades, perhaps centuries, possibly forever. Were they honest, the “progressives” in American political life would admit they regard national sovereignty as an antiquated concept. Their allegiance is to their capital, and the capital to which they pledge allegiance is not Washington, D.C., or any of our state capitals, but the capital of accumulated wealth that will become greater as the economies of nations go under. There will, in the end, be one flag, one nation, one currency. And one set of rulers over all. This was not the kind of republic John Quincy Adams saluted on July 4, 1821.

Nor would Adams be taken in by the claims of the United States as world liberator, set out upon the lands and seas of the world to dethrone tyrants, capture flags, and set the captives free. “Wherever the standard of freedom and Independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will her heart, her benedictions and her prayers be,” Adams said. Prayers are not to be dismissed nor neglected in this age of “enlightenment.” More things are wrought by prayer, Tennyson said, than the world has dreamed of.

“But,” Adams continued in tribute to his blessed America, “she goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy.” In other words, America has not as her mission to bring “regime change” to lands other than her own — not even in lands where the people are captive to unspeakable tyrants. For America, said Adams, “is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. She will commend the general cause by the countenance of her voice and benignant sympathy of her example.” Long before Americans were compelled to don blue helmets and sent to fight under the banner of the United Nations, the America of John Quincy Adams knew that “by once enlisting under banners other than her own, were they even banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standard of freedom.” Sound familiar?

How often in the past half-century has America, fighting under standards other than her own, been drawn into foreign wars “beyond the power of extrication,” as Adams warned? “The fundamental maxims of her policy would insensibly change from liberty to force,” Adams foresaw. “She might become the dictatress of the world. She would no longer be the ruler of her own spirit.”

The vision John Quincy Adams articulated in 1821 is still the right road map for America. Her “glory is not dominion, but liberty. Her march is the march of the mind. She has a spear and a shield; but the motto upon her shield is Freedom, Independence, Peace. This has been her Declaration: this has been, as far as her necessary intercourse with the rest of mankind would permit, her practice.”

The siren song beckons America toward the broad road that leads to the graveyard of empires. We would do well to heed voices of the past that urge us to follow the paths of our forebears. Concerning the lure of empire, there is a simple and faithful warning:

Don’t go there!
