I'm getting a Y2K, 2012, the comet is coming soon, planet alignment, pole shifting, chicken little, the sky is falling kinda vibe.
Once you have lived a bunch of decades, you will realize that this tune has been sung many a time. I've heard it before. The collapse of society as we know it. Economic doom and gloom. The collapse of the dollar. It's always going to be some people's schtick. Done mostly for monetary gain, but sometimes, like in the case of the People's Temple, for power.
Yes, the end will come, and it might be six months from now. Might be tomorrow. But I know one thing for sure. It ain't right now.
Don't worry, be happy.....Bobby McFerrin.
Black Swan events come out of left field & no one sees them coming. I agree the economic future looks rocky , but everyone is aware of the turmoil & that is what makes your theory questionable.

Dr. Coleman recently authored an interesting article about the impending collapse of society. Essentially the collapse would turn "free" countries, western civilization and "first world" countries in to developing countries with some sort of totalitarian government control. This actually makes sense as we constantly hearing about how we are the in the middle of the great reset, and if you survive until 2030, you will own nothing and be "happy." Dr. Coleman has made predictions for a long time and is uncannily accurate. You can check his website for previous video predictions.
The global debt is 3.5x the global GDP. The house of cards is ready to collapse, and the days of printing trillions as a worthless band aid are over. Governments are not going to tell people the truth, as panic is the last thing they want since that would cause them to lose control. Instead, they invented a plan a long time ago to create a global crisis so they can justify doing just about whatever they need to to control the collapse, so they can retain power during the "transition period." People who stay asleep will be caught off guard and have absolutely no plan.
There are actually many people who have seen the collapse coming and are preparing or are already prepared. When food shortages hit, supply chains slow to a crawl, and hyperinflation kicks in, acquiring basic resources like food and water will become challenging. In this environment we won't have the system we have taken for granted for decades. Instead, chaos and crime will soar as desperate people will do anything to get what they need, including taking things from those who have it. It will be a dangerous world, especially in big cities, and those who can't adapt may not survive.
In 2020, the global debt was $220 trillion. It has now risen to $300 trillion – that’s three and a half times global GDP.
Governments everywhere are going to have push up interest rates to try to keep inflation down. And when they do that the cost of servicing all that debt is going to bankrupt millions, destroy thousands of companies and put nations in peril. No country on earth is immune. Both the UK and the USA could go into default. Services are going to have to be cut. Pensions and other payments will have to be halted.
Spending on health and education will be slashed as more and more money goes on buying bombs for the Ukraine war. The cost of rebuilding Ukraine will probably be close to a trillion dollars. Taxpayers are going to be expected to find the money – most of which will doubtless be stolen. And, as I predicted many weeks ago, western governments are preparing for war with Russia. NATO is preparing for war. And the head of the British armed forces says we must be ready for war. The only people who will gain will be the arms companies.
How about you barter away some of the pemican! Use it to get things other people have that you don't. I have eggs to swap.. That is how this is going to work if it works when the days of darkness arrive. I might have some spare canned food I will be canning, and I have lots of practice. You might want one of those portable solar generators too. I am sure that is a good idea. I have a friend with one. The portable solar ones don't make noise. If it doesn't need fuel it will be noiseless. Battery life being the only issue. I doubt it would last for 20 years if you needed it that long.

I'm working on making 5-10 years worth of high quality Pemmican, so will soon have the food problem solved for our entire family, but I'm not sure how to attack the water problem. Would appreciate some ideas
