WHY DID A YOUNG EX-FACEBOOK GENIUS EXECUTIVE GO PREPPER/SURVIVALIST?
Antonio Garcia Martinez is a young, smart guy. He was a Facebook product manager and he lives in San Francisco. As he says it, "I'm from the future. I work in technology and I've seen the future and that is why I am doing this. Because of technology, we could, in the next few years, lose 30 million jobs." That kind of displacement of human beings could "make things weird" he says. What he means is that the level of desperation and poverty will skyrocket with all those jobs being eliminated and this could cause massive instability in our major cities.
So he bought an island and has fortified it with generators, solar panels, weaponry and food.
And he's not alone. There are hundreds of Silicon Valley elites that are preparing for doomsday event. Whether it's an EMP from North Korea or Russia, or an internal civil war or upheaval driven by poverty, it doesn't matter to them. They see some event on the horizon albeit a remote event. Despite it being a remote possibility, they are smart and logical. Because the event has only a remote chance of happening does NOT mean you ignore it. If you have the means, it means you do something to prepare for it because the downside of the event and doing nothing is very large.
Some of you that read TotallyRight.us regularly may have picked up on the fact that we are moderate preppers over here. We have supplies and gear, ammo and guns (lots of those), and we've trained in survival techniques since we were children, mainly in the California Sierra Mountains. This is most likely where we would go once we could get out of the city area in the case of an event. We also have a hunker down and fight plan for staying put and fighting it out here, but that's not ideal and would only go into effect if it was determined that we absolutely could not make it to the mountains for some strange reason. In the mountains, we can survive for years and years if necessary. We have all the natural resources we need up there. Water, shelter and food.
Without going into incredible detail in this post, we would just suggest that you think about what might happen if there were an earthquake or other event like an EMP that renders the grid 100% down for 3 months. Think about how you're going to find fresh water, food, and light and how you're going to protect yourself and your family from the people around you that are not prepared, who will get desperate, and who will want to take your water or food. There are a million Youtube and internet prepper sites. You can put together your own bug out packs just buying the right stuff from Amazon, or you can go to www.ShadowCompanyGear.com and order a large pack or a small pack that is already put together for you by experts - and they come with a small book that gives you a list of all the items in the packs and what they can be used for in a survival situation.
Just saying. Think about it. Have a plan.
REMAIN VIGILANT AMERICA!!!
