Prophets of Doom

Updated 1/7/2011

Today’s world has troubles unique to its time in history, from the global financial crisis to technological meltdowns to full scale, computerized global war. Observing the convergence of such events, contemporary prophets have begun to emerge from obscurity to suggest that these conditions might be signs of the demise of the modern world. These men are historians as well, using all manner of information and patterns from the past to provide context for where we are going. Their predictions interpret the current state of affairs in our world as evidence that the America we know may come to an end. The men proposing these ideas are not crackpots living on the streets of New York; they are intelligent, learned men who come armed with the evidence to back up their claims.

history channel’s prophets of doom.

If you missed it, buy it! It talks about a lot of the issues humanity is facing in the very near future.  Only thing its missing is the ethnic/immigration issues, the demographic issues the west now faces.

And Now We’re Headed For The GREATEST Depression, Says Gerald Celente

The fake “recovery” was nice while it lasted, says famous apocalyptic forecaster Gerald Celente, founder of the Trends Research Institute. But now the fun’s over, and we’re headed for what Celente describes as the “Greatest Depression.”

Specifically, the always startling Celente says the country is headed for rising unemployment, poverty, and violent class warfare as the government efforts to keep the economy going begin to fail.

The crux of the problem, Celente argues, is that the middle class has been wiped out. America used to be a land of opportunity for all, where hard-working people could build their own small businesses in their own communities and live prosperous and fulfilling lives. But now a collusion of state and corporate interests that Celente describes as “fascism” have conspired to help only the biggest companies and the richest Americans. This has put a shocking amount of the country’s wealth in the hands of a privileged few and left the rest of the country to subsist on chicken-feed wages and low job satisfaction as Wal-Mart “associates” — or worse.

The answer, Celente says, is to bring back the laws that prevented huge companies from getting so big and powerful, and put some opportunity back in the hands of ordinary people.  But doing that is going to take a while.  And in the meantime, we’re headed for trouble.

(Celente’s dead right about U.S. wealth inequality, by the way.  It’s shocking.  And it’s getting worse.)

  1. I have been reading ‘water Rights’ who and why the rich are buying all and as much of it as possible in the US. It goes hand in hand as your opinions. I believe that your all wrong on one thing! Rather than 2030-2050, its already began in year 2007. With th calapse of the housing and banking industry. Its here, right now!

  2. LOL, I have my doubts whether this group of men have the proper education to come to these conclusions. I would gladly put my environmental knowledge against this group any time. ie. water treatment, waste water treatment, and solid waste. Water reclimation has been used all across the U.S. for more than 100 yrs. Water is removed upstream, treated mechanically and chemically, then distributed to your house. Waste Water is collected treated mechanically, biologicly, and sometimes chemically, then released back down stream for the next community to use. Visit your local sewer/wastewater/reclimation plant. You will see the treated sewer water that is discharged is many many times cleaner than the recieving body of water.
