It has long been argued that the #1 rule for survival is population density.
Imagine this. Should suddenly and without warning the SHTF, where would YOU rather be, in a big city with hundreds of thousands to millions of others, the large majority of them completely unprepared for a SHTF situation, or out in the country or the mountains where the numerical odds begin in your favor with far fewer people attempting to take what's yours?
While the globalists attempt to herd the masses into the big city/suburb population hubs that make up nearly 50% or more of the US population, our 'arrives just in the nick of time' system of resources is being stretched to the point of breaking and as we've been warned, all it needs is the right event to bring it all crashing down.
The story that both Steve Quayle and the Drudge Report linked to on their websites on Wednesday was called "World's Worst Traffic Jam?" and showed a photograph and must-see video of traffic stuck for miles in pre-Thanksgiving gridlock in Southern California. You can see that video as the 1st video below in which our videographer also reminds us why the last place we want to be in a SHTF scenario is in the big cities.
While the photo above and video below show peaceful, orderly Thanksgiving weekend travel, it doesn't take too much imagination to visualize what it might look like should this travel be under a SHTF scenario.
A shiny sea of red and white lights stretching as far as the eye can see, scenes like that are being replayed all across the country as also seen in the screenshot above taken from the Baltimore Sun's map of current traffic conditions in the Baltimore and Washington DC areas. Showing us VERY slow moving to completely stopped traffic in red, slow traffic in orange and open lanes in green, we see exactly why the big cities nearly instantly become 'death traps' when SHTF.
Like the iconic scenes below from the Walking Dead TV show showing comparisons to 'real life Atlanta', when it all comes down, do YOU want to be one of those trying to escape from the cities (along with several hundred thousand of your neighbors) or would you rather already be far, far away from the suddenly fleeing masses?
If such a worst-case scenario happens, and the chain of supplies that keep our country glued together suddenly stop whether via massive cyber attack that takes down our system's infrastructure, an EMP attack or solar flare that creates a 'lights out scenario' or simply economic collapse, imagine what might happen should a million people or more suddenly be unable to get food, toilet paper or other basic necessities. The anti-Trump riots that are happening now across the country would be nothing compared to millions hungry, unable to find their next meals.
How else might the US population SHRINK to less than half of what it was during the Great Depression? Keep in mind, 61 million Americans is about 1/5 of those living here now... how might our population be reduced so drastically and so quickly? From Deagel.:
The key element to understand the process that the USA will enter in the upcoming decade is migration. In the past, specially in the 20th century, the key factor that allowed the USA to rise to its colossus status was immigration with the benefits of a demographic expansion supporting the credit expansion and the brain drain from the rest of the world benefiting the States.
The collapse of the Western financial system will wipe out the standard of living of its population while ending ponzi schemes such as the stock exchange and the pension funds. The population will be hit so badly by a full array of bubbles and ponzi schemes that the migration engine will start to work in reverse accelerating itself due to ripple effects thus leading to the demise of the States. This unseen situation for the States will develop itself in a cascade pattern with unprecedented and devastating effects for the economy. Jobs offshoring will surely end with many American Corporations relocating overseas thus becoming foreign Corporations!!!!
We see a significant part of the American population migrating to Latin America and Asia while migration to Europe - suffering a similar illness - won't be relevant. Nevertheless the death toll will be horrible. Take into account that the Soviet Union's population was poorer than the Americans nowadays or even then. The ex-Soviets suffered during the following struggle in the 1990s with a significant death toll and the loss of national pride. Might we say "Twice the pride, double the fall"? Nope. The American standard of living is one of the highest, far more than double of the Soviets while having added a services economy that will be gone along with the financial system.
When pensioners see their retirement disappear in front of their eyes and there are no servicing jobs you can imagine what is going to happen next. At least younger people can migrate. Never in human history were so many elders among the population. In past centuries people were lucky to get to their 30s or 40s. The American downfall is set to be far worse than the Soviet Union's one. A confluence of crisis with a devastating result.
As we're told in this story from AltMarket.com, Donald Trump's win and the defeat of the left comes with a cost. With Trump now the perfect scapegoat, or conduit, for economic collapse, we're not surprised the globalists are still talking 'war' as we've long been warned, "when all else fails, they bring us to war".
During this time that we are thankful for all of the blessing bestowed upon us, we need to remember that such a war will likely come home to US soil, fought in the same US cities where Americans are now fighting traffic jams.
As we're told in the final video below, there is so much to be thankful for here in America, having the opportunity to prepare for a moment we pray never comes. Meanwhile, every day both here in America and in other places around the world, people are living their own very real survival stories.
And as Steve Quayle told us on the note he left on this Survival Dan story, "IN EFFECT 45 MILLION AMERICANS (THOSE ON FOOD STAMPS) ARE ALREADY EXPERIENCING THE BEGINNING OF FAMINE!" With the number of Americans on food stamps going through the roof as seen in the chart above, we pray that the days ahead are loving, hearty, bountiful ones for everybody while preparing for the days that aren't. Happy Thanksgiving!
