Selco at The Organic Prepper has an article up certain dangerous people in trying times like these – People with a “Perfect Solution” Will Use Our Hard Times to Take Control
…In the last few weeks, I saw riots erupt every single day because people lost their confidence in how the situation was being handled here with all events. People went out in the streets in big numbers, kicking police, smashing windows… I think the main reason for it was the feeling that their lives are being taken away, or to put it more clearly their future is getting taken from their hands by the people who do not know what they do.
So folks went out on the streets, letting that rage out on the system
It is nothing particularly new. When emotions like rage and fear erupt after boiling for a long time, these things happen.
There’s always someone with a “perfect solution.”
What I noticed too is among a huge mass of those people there were movements with ideas that are very violent and radical, trying to take that rage and fear of the common folks and use it in their favor, in order to steer people. They want to “ride” on the common folk’s rage and fear, and they want to get more power.
So they can rule.
That is nothing new either. It happened through history frequently. In very hard times, a movement with a dangerous and radical agenda took all those people’s desperation, rage, and fear and used it in their favor.
Who would people listen to during hard and desperate times? A movement with radical ideas that promises a solution to all problems, of course.
It is the perfect time for movements, or people, or some man with “solutions” to everything. What you just have to do is to follow their ideas. Yeah, some of those ideas sound…hmmm… maybe weird, or a bit radical, but what the hell? I mean those folks will “save us”, right?
I am afraid of those “perfect solutions” that are coming, at least coming here in my region. Who knows, maybe those “perfect solutions” are coming everywhere.
It is not about conspiracy theories now. It is about how much people must be desperate in order to accept something which in essence could be even worse than the actual situation?
How desperate must a family man who has lost his job, home, health, and safe future be in order to accept something which is, at its very essence, wrong?
Is all this only a prelude to something even worse after which we will all welcome the “solution”?
I do not know.
What the future holds
As things continue to erode here, I feel like I know less.
Or maybe in a way, I want to know less about things that I cannot change, and I invest more in things that I can change.
And again, as much I do not know exactly what the future will bring, I am positive it is not going to be good. Too many things are happening. Too many people are losing everything, including hope.
I am kinda waiting for something that will be even worse than this…
