As to whether or not this stuff should be stopped, I may have a different opinion.
I think there is very little wrong with it. People that are going to be freaked out by what they perceive as the upcoming collapse of the world economy will find confirmation anywhere and everywhere that you or I would look and see nothing at all to be alarmed about.
Red Sox behind in the stats? “It is because the owners & players are working on preparing what they need to survive themselves!”
FEMA purchasing a few white vans for transport? “The UN is preparing for martial law roundups!”
FEMA preparing for swine flu? OMG It is MAN-MADE!!! They want to infect us ALL to thin out the population!!
And so on…...
Back around 1999,(Y2K) many folks were worried that repairs couldn’t keep the nation’s (world’s) computer infrastructure up and running. They were nicknamed, aptly enough, “Doomers”. Doomers now, like then, are convinced that although they are currently poor, powerless, and at the bottom of the economic food chain, their secret knowledge of what will happen will allow them to prepare and then save hundreds, possibly thousands from their own foolishness. This empowers them greatly. It makes them feel important and part of a small group that has “figured out” what the rest of society were too blind (or stupid) to see. “The world will fail and THEN You’ll See!” is their secret motto. They feel that they must be the ones to try and make others see the truth. Nothing one can say or do will probably get through to them past their delusion. Everything they read or see is filtered through their doomed colored mindset. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING gets through that might make them reconsider their “game plan” they spend thousands on MRE’s and water purification materials. The stockpile fuel and weapons. (And ammo) they work two, sometimes three jobs to have enough money to get what they need to restart society after it crashes. (I remember reading on one sight back then that people should rototill their yards and plant food gardens there NOW, before it was too late! (Think gary North…)
I know this because I WAS one. Family and friends I spoke with were TRULY worried about what was about to happen. Several were high up in major companies’ IT departments. I figured if THEY were afraid, it might be prudent to get some supplies “Just in case”. As you know, Y2K went by with hardly a fizzle. (At the time. Don’t get me started about the repeated refinery shutdowns or the folding of major corporations that had been hiding the BILLIONS they spent trying to alleviate the y2K problem…) (Don’t worry, I am much calmer now…)
I really don’t think that a single website, (with Sony Pictures in the lower left corner for all to see) is going to do much one way or another.
The only thing that will is time. And learning.
(Besides, the graphics of the three scenarios are pretty cool…..I made sure to max them out….)
