Since you are on this site you are probably a prepper or thinking about becoming a prepper. Why is that? More than likely you have an uneasy feeling that things are not right. Think of it this way. Animals often exhibit changes in behavior prior to earthquakes. Don’t you think humans can have the same sense? If you are even half awake you probably see and hear things to increase your concern. You hear things like George Soros talking about one world government and the destruction of the US economy.

Then you find out that George Soros was one of the major contributors to the DNC and Obama. Maybe you are bothered by the economy and all the jobs that have left the US? Could it be you are concerned about our open borders and the illegal immigrants? Does it concern you that you are not in control of your destiny? Are you bothered by the stock market being rigged? The US surveillance state must be concerning.
Human vs Robot
Here is what is bothering me. During the course of the past several years I keep reading and seeing that technology has the ability to replace human beings. There is even a YouTube video called Humans Need Not Apply. The video discusses the advances in technology that will eliminate the jobs for 45% of our economy. Morgan Freeman had an episode on Through the Wormhole where he discusses as a species how we are developing our replacements. Then there are the trans-humanists led by Ray Kurzweil who believe in immortality through merging with technology.
Fill in the voids with UN Agenda 21, the plan for sustainable development and things become clearer. UN Agenda 21 states that the optimal human population for the planet is 500,000,000. Now consider the planet has over 7,000,000,000 and you realize that there are 6.5 billion too many people. What do you do to get rid of 6.5 billion people? Do you reduce life expectancy through socialized medicine? Do you reduce fertility through estrogen mimickers in the food supply? Maybe you want to speed up the process with a massive famine caused by the Monsanto GMO crops? You could also EMP blast the planet and blame it on the sun or you could start WWIII. A worldwide pandemic could also go a long way towards culling the herd. Unfortunately, all of these seem plausible and they drive my need to be prepared. Being prepared hopefully gives me and my family the edge to survive. That is why I read. That is why I write and that is why I prepare.
