One of the favorite topics on prepper forums and in doomer literature is TEOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it). I think what many fail to focus on with this is the (as we know it) portion. The fact is the world as people of their time knew it has ended many times, it will continue to end.
At one time a Roman citizen was the most advantaged in the world, so also there was a time when it was a great to be a Greek, an Aztec or a member of the Hopi Tribe. None of these civilizations really “ended” they shifted and adapted, the decedents are here with us. In the case of the Greeks they are now on the verge of bankruptcy but we still have Greece. The Aztecs may be gone but their descendants are part of the blood of Mexican and Latin American citizens today as are many of their customs.
Shifts are strange, at times they benefit us, sometimes they harm us and sometimes they can all but destroy us. Some our subtle and some are massive and even tiny shifts can cause massive change over time. The only constant in shifts it they ALWAYS occur, they never stop and we will always have to deal with them.
Today’s show covers a few such shifts but mainly focuses on being prepared for them, no matter what form they may take.
