The price of being American is going up, and in more than just monetarily. With the cost of just about everything going up, our government in a spending spree unlike we’ve ever seen, and hacks on our critical infrastructure, it seems like it’s only a matter of time before it’s time to pay the piper.
Inflation Food Prices & Shortages
Throughout history currency has risen and fallen. Sometimes this is due to bad governance, and sometimes it’s done on purpose to bail themselves out. Either way hyperinflation, and the devaluing and change of a monetary system is always because of poorly run government.
Just because the currency dies, or the monetary system changes doesn’t mean it will be the end of The United States, but it would mean that we are in for extremely hard times ahead. Some economists will tell you everything is fine, and some will tell you we are in the middle of an economic crisis as we speak.
And if that isn’t bad enough, we have seen successful attacks on critical infrastructure, shortages, and people being paid not to work that could all escalate our slide over the edge. While it’s likely that everything goes along as planned, I’m not holding my breath. Our government has put us in a position where there is no room for error, so it wouldn’t take much to crash our economy.
Long-Term SHTF Scenarios
As preppers we prepare for a variety of disaster scenarios and think about these hypothetical SHTF situations in our heads. In this show we talk about what a long-term SHTF scenario might actually look like.
While there are too many scenarios to say it would be this or that, it most likely wouldn’t be the Mad Max scenario most of us think about. Disaster movies and TV shows are great for contemplating “what would I do” but most events will unfold differently than in the movies.
A long-term disaster or SHTF event is unlikely to be a singular event. It’s more likely that one event causes a cascade of disasters to follow. Another pandemic, hyperinflation, and critical infrastructure failure could all be that first domino to fall.
