(NaturalNews) Today the U.S. stock market opened with a more than 1,000 point plunge, followed by various ups and downs as market chaos took hold. After having lost more than 1,000 points last week, the Dow is now in serious “correction” territory, exhibiting behavior that indicates systemic fragility headed for a collapse (high volatility with wild swings in both directions).
A former high-level UK government advisor named Damian McBride has gone public with the same advice we’ve been urging readers to take seriously for years. In a series of tweets, McBride urged people to stock up on food and survival supplies to ride out the imminent social chaos that’s now on a collision course with our delusional world.
Tweet #1: “Advice on the looming crash, No.1: get hard cash in a safe place now; don’t assume banks & cashpoints will be open, or bank cards will work.”
Tweet #2: “Crash advice No.2: do you have enough bottled water, tinned goods & other essentials at home to live a month indoors? If not, get shopping.”
Tweet #3: “Crash advice No.3: agree a rally point with your loved ones in case transport and communication gets cut off; somewhere you can all head to.”
McBride warns that the financial collapse now on a collision course with our world is 20 times worse than the near-collapse in 2008.
From the Independent UK:
Mr McBride credited his former boss Gordon Brown with preventing a cataclysm by nationalising the banking system during the 2008 crash.
“We were close enough in 2008 (if the bank bailout hadn’t worked),” he said. “and what’s coming is on 20 times that scale”.
What does Damian McBride know that the mainstream media isn’t reporting?
It’s crystal clear from these tweets that McBride sees total social chaos being unleashed by the accelerating stock market crash. He’s warning not just about financial events, but also food shortages, power grid failures, a collapse of transportation, the shuttering of banks and ATMs, etc.
These are the kind of events that happen when a financial crash becomes a systemic collapse of basic infrastructure.
They also happen to be descriptions of things that happen in a WAR. With China, Russia and the United States now engaged in a heated currency war that may have already gone “kinetic,” all this begs the question: What does McBride know that his former employer — the UK government — isn’t telling us?
Like all those who warn people to be prepared, McBride has of course been criticized for daring to tell people to stock up on supplies. Apparently, there exists a large number of suicidal morons in society who not only refuse to stock up on supplies for themselves; they actually hate it when other people stock up on supplies around them! But don’t worry: If McBride’s fears are correct, these anti-prepper idiots won’t be around much longer to complain.
Unless you want to join them in an exercise of mass starvation and helplessness, you’d be wise to heed McBride’s advice and make sure you cover the basics of preparedness now while you still can.
