    Unless they are stockpiling toilet paper it's not going to matter one way or the other when the inevitable happens:

    And even then, I have to ask, is toilet paper going to be enough?

    And what are they going to do if the guards they hired decide to kick them out and take over the compound for themselves?
    Humble yourself, for there is an enormous change coming.

    Did you notice most of them seem to be more afraid of California Earthquakes or "Asteroid" from Space movies than the kind of Economic and Social Upheaval brought about by their own foolish economic ideas. That we could become the next Venezuela while the Mobs of humanity take them out!

    I had to skip way down in the article to find someone who mentioned a Russian type violent Revolution.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    That is the funniest part, all these elites that speak for the hoards of worthless filth, and berate us for being immoral and racists, will be the first ones raided for everything they own when the SHFT.

    If anyone thinks they can escape to New Zealand before things collapse, are probably just fooling themselves. As the article mentioned, you'd have to take your family and the pilots family with you. Logistics will be a problem.

    But it's alarming that these high net worth people seem to be going to extraordinary lengths to bail on the society they helped destroy. 320,000,000 people will not be going anywhere. When things collapse, the have-nots will be coming for the haves. The average middle class person in suburbia will be besieged by the hoards from the nearest cities. Collective militias will be key to keeping these predators at bay. But ultimately, it will fail as food, medicine, and supplies run out.

    Wouldn't it be better to PREVENT it from happening in the first place?

    The lizard people will surface from the Marianas Trench and invade the shore at Malibu Beach, while Godzilla and company will wreak havoc on Japan, Hong Kong, and Indonesia.

    You know that and I know that but the dumber than a box rocks crowd doesn't know that. When the collapse comes and it will we will enter a thousand to two thousand year dark ages that will make the last dark ages look like a Sunday school picnic. In fact it's likely that humanity may very well cease to exist.
