Today while reading a thread in a survival forum someone explained his view on how different a collapse in USA would be compared to the one that took place in Argentina in 2001. He said that while the collapse in Argentina was like changing a tire on a Ford Falcon, what will happen in US will be like changing them all on a 18-wheeler.
Changing a tire on a Falcon is a light way of putting it. Our economy collapsed, our currency lost 70% of its value overnight and the president resigned while anarchy spread all over the country. Over a decade later the place is still a mess, it simply never got back on its feet. Just last week, looting spread across 40 major cities in Argentina. My family and friends over there spend three days, including Christmas, without power or water, while roasted at 120F. We didn’t change the tire on a Ford Falcon. The Falcon went over the cliff and blew up. You could say there’s only a wreckage left of what was once a nice, shiny Ford Falcon.
Unfortunately for you guys in USA its more similar than any of us could have expected. Seems that right after getting an Obama doble tap, you’ll get hit with Hillary Clinton in 2016. The shit storm your’re about to go through will test everyone’s determination and true preparedness levels. Its now and in these coming years that people will get to see for themselves what works and what doesn’t. Many such accounts have already been posted here the last couple years.
If USA fully collapses, the dollar becomes pretty much worthless and you one day wake up in Bolivia, in that case and from an individual perspective, you’ll go through what we did in Argentina. You’ll start bartering for a living like thousands did in Argentina. When you realize the problems concerning bartering you’ll try making money to survive on whatever new currency replaces the US dollar. Will it get that bad? Lets hope not. But if it does, then the life challenges you’ll be facing on a personal level aren’t in anyway unique. A lot of people have had to go through that.
You know what a common saying for most Argentines? “ It’s the same thing everywhere you go. Anywhere you go around the world these days there’s crime, there’s inflation, problems, etc”. That’s how Argentines go into denial, convincing themselves that their shitty reality isn’t unique to them. Those of us that know better want to scream “No, its not! A lot of people around the world live MUCH better than you do!”. I’ve done that myself, but its of no use, people prefer to stay in denial. Denial is a powerful survival mechanism so as to not go nuts. It’s the way in which your psyche tells itself that what you are going through is ok, its normal. Saying that if USA goes to hell everyone else goes along with it is the same thing. Just like any other Empire or world power in history, if one day USA becomes a shadow of what it once was, it will slowly fade away as its doing now in many ways. Maybe there’s still time to reverse things, maybe its too late, I don’t know, but if it continues this way, other than a few iconic moments and incidents, its a slow decaying process. There’s going to be other places where quality of life is better, and eventually another country or group of countries may rise above it to take its place.
There’s thousands of people preparing for whats coming using the novel Patriots and Doomsday Preppers as guidelines. You know how useful that is for what the future holds for you in USA as of today? Zip, nada, nothing. Rather the contrary, instead of helping, people will make the wrong decisions which will at the very least cost them money they can no longer afford to lose. Look south across the border to see what crime and violence in USA may look like one day. Add to that a government that is not only tending toward socialist authoritarianism, but effective at it too.
