I’ve been reluctant to write anything lately, mostly because I feel like I have nothing more to say at this point. Well, nothing that would be relevant to the present situation, at least. Both economy and politics are in a phase where the explosive mixture has been established and we are waiting for the right kind of spark.

As for the disaster preparedness, I would keep this a priority – and I don’t mean just having a bug-out backpack ready. I mean saving money, primarily in form of precious metals, but also cash, and having it ready in various forms, in case you need to react to the worsening of the situation in your immediate environment. By this I mean primarily the good people who live in America or some other potentially explosive parts of the world, who might find themselves in a situation that quickly escalates into riots, barricades and war of some kind. Keep yourself mobile enough to be able to get away from the X if excrement starts hitting the impeller, to put it politely. You know what I mean by mobility – have enough cash at hand to react quickly, and a car full of gas. Also, everything you need to stay online and keep working (laptop, smartphone, chargers), because the moment you stop being able to make money is the beginning of a serious personal crisis for you and your family. I don’t know what to tell you to expect – from what we’ve seen so far, the situation has a tendency to vary wildly between parts of the world, and the undertones of the beginnings of a global crisis are mixed with local disasters; for instance, if you live in Donbass, having mobility means being able to evacuate into Russia where your level of acute danger will drop exponentially, but you will still be in danger of an American nuclear attack, which, to be sure, is very much on the table now that Trump, who got in the way of Armageddon plans, is out of the picture and the old team is back in power. If you’re in America, you might be in the most dangerous place on the planet at the moment, because you live in a country that is simultaneously provoking a nuclear power (China) and a nuclear and space tech superpower (Russia), and if things escalate, they might escalate very quickly, in a way where significant parts of America reach temperature hotter than the surface of the Sun. To be sure, America doesn’t seem to need this kind of foreign assistance and is working on destroying itself quite thoroughly on its own accord, but I simply don’t see America going quietly into the night. As they degrade, they will try to pull others with them, and will eventually and inevitably cross some red line which will make the creation of “The day after: a documentary” an inevitability.

As for the economy, the ideal opportunity to earn lots of money quickly will soon turn into an ideal opportunity to lose it all if you didn’t convert it into gold and silver in time. Basically, when the collapse starts, it will happen very quickly, because of all the computer trading and fast digital connections, and you won’t be able to react in time and pull it out unless you’ve been acting proactively. Basically, if you don’t hold the Krugerrands, you hold the bag.

As for the spiritual preparations, that’s been going on quite intensively for basically everyone I’ve been talking to lately, so I don’t even have to mention it. The “guys up there” have that part handled and people have been going through an accelerated regimen of learning important lessons dealing with their personal karmic makeup, and also a process of detachment from the world. I don’t know in which phase the process is at the moment, but I personally have been ready to go for quite some time, and my personal nightmare isn’t related to all of this ending – it’s related to it going on endlessly. Whenever my ride away from here comes, it will be later than I desire and hope. In the meantime, I’m making plans to endure whatever disaster happens first.

To let you know how seriously I’m taking the preparations, let me just say that the condo I’m renting at the moment has a leak in the roof just above my bed, and all sorts of cracks in the walls, as a consequence of all those earthquakes in Croatia in the past year, and I still didn’t move because I don’t want to expend significant resources before I know where the lightning will actually strike; but I’m sitting on enough money to be able to move immediately and without hesitation if I feel that the right kind of opening was formed. Basically, I prioritize having potential energy to having a good static situation, because we are at a point where good static situations can turn into hellholes on very little notice.
