Today I am going to discuss the reality of where we are. It is the end of the word. Again. Yes, again. Call it the fourth turning, call it a “great reset”, it is really the end. The end is also the beginning. Some things we can fight, some we can mitigate and some we really can’t do shit about. The key is knowing which is which and living your life in an as ungovernable manner as possible.
- Is it really “the 4th turning” does it even matter
- Massive change is always and “ending”
- Some serious shit is happening or coming soon
- Workers are quitting or freeloading and no one really seems to notice – link
- MIT Predicted collapse of population in 2040 back in 1972 – link
- Fertility rates, reproduction rates, etc. are falling everywhere even in the “3rd world”
- 2025 is now called the “College Enrollment Cliff” – link
- Most college grads regret their major (so well, college) – link
- We are economically screwed as well
- Debt Interest on national debt will be 8.1 trillion dollars that we do not have – link
- US Unfunded liabilities (money we will never have) is not 171 trillion dollars (500K per citizen) – link
- People are unable to buy a home with what are actually normal interest rates 5.5-7.5% – link
- The fight for 15 minimum wage argument is almost totally moot at this point – link
- Even Google is hinting at layoffs – link
- What do We do
- Don’t worry about what you can’t control
- Build value and real assets into your life
- Develop skills in yourself and your family/community
- Build a business, fortunes are made in depressions/recessions
- Remain optimistic
- Get though the 5 stages of grief as soon as possible
- Realize you are mortal, embrace it
- Stand the F up! Be the lion you are meant to be.
