I believe 90 % of the people are clueless about the possibility (and likeliness) of a collapse. How does it feel arguing with them? The image below illustrates pretty well how they react: Some people are sawing the bridge under them: the way they spend, the way the waste, the way they go with the crowd. And many of them have a special talent in ignoring reality. And viciously attacking anyone who'll try to prove them what's obvious. No, you can't open everyone's eyes. Noah could couldn't save all people either (no, it wasn't because of his boat's size, it was big enough to save the "believers"). 3 days ago someone told me how she "always buys the latest Samsung phone" and that 2 years is "just way too long" to change her phone model. Lives on credit. 99 % of people around don't even believe in the possibility of a collapse occurring. Let alone, it's potential depth. Back in 2008 I was stunned when I got confronted by numb-minded people around me: they literally refused to believe that the crisis was undergoing. No matter how hard I tried to point out to them: the riots, the interest rates, the terrible currency exchange rate, the decrease of salaries, the increase of food prices. Someone laughed me in the face, trying to convince me that I was naive and "being manipulated". Currently they guy lives on credit and he's upset because the credit rates are worse and worse (the bank forces him to take more and more out of his pocket each month). Yet, he's convinced "it's just bad politics" and someone is "just corrupt". I'm amazed how dumb people are. Even highly-educated, seemingly intelligent people are lost. Don't argue with rabid cats. Just take care of yourself and your family.
