The Wealthy Elitists Plan To Survive The Apocalypse And Leave Us Behind

Authored by Mac Slavo cia,

Silicon Valley’s wealthy elitists are preparing for the apocalypse, and their plans for survival don’t include us. When the time comes, those same elitists plan to only save themselves.

According to an article written by Douglas Rushkoff published originally in Medium, those hedge fund bankers are all preparing for a major apocalyptic event, which they actually dub “The Event.” Whether “the event” is to be artificial intelligence reaching singularity or a virus that brings about a major death toll, they wanted to be prepared, and they asked Rushkoff to fill them in. The elitists asked such questions as:

Which region will be less affected by the coming climate crisis: New Zealand or Alaska? Is Google really building Ray Kurzweil a home for his brain, and will his consciousness live through the transition, or will it die and be reborn as a whole new one?

Finally, the CEO of a brokerage house explained that he had nearly completed building his own underground bunker system and asked: “How do I maintain authority over my security force after the Event?”

This single question occupied us for the rest of the hour. They knew armed guards would be required to protect their compounds from the angry mobs. But how would they pay the guards once money was worthless? What would stop the guards from choosing their own leader? 

The billionaires considered using special combination locks on the food supply that only they knew. Or making guards wear disciplinary collars of some kind in return for their survival. Or maybe building robots to serve as guards and workers — if that technology could be developed in time. –Medium

This sounds like a dystopia of humanity’s own making. And it also sounds like we should all be preparing. If the wealthiest billionaires are discussing literal slavery in the aftermath of the apocalypse, shouldn’t we all be preparing to defend ourselves from such a fate? We already know our current master, the government, has no plans for any of us to survive. They do, however, have massive bunkers that can withstand nuclear wars built into the sides of mountains that are ready to use at any time.

"and their plans for survival don’t include us"

Ha! Typical dumb shits...

Little do they know...

They will be THE primary targets...

And will be the FIRST to die.

And all their "goods" taken.

Comes the Apocalypse...

It will certainly be best to be a nobody.

Wrong order there, fella. Farmers, mechanics, and any medical person with skills (even veterinarians). Scientists are supported by big fat governments and will starve or die in a collapse.

People that make crappy food taste good, people that can operate a ham radio, and people that can shoot and kill will have plenty of work.

Fucking scientists will be needed? Damn someone is living in fantasy land at some la-la university.

will his consciousness live through the transition, or will it die and be reborn as a whole new one?

You gotta love these either or questions.  Ah, can I take Neither!

While the elite pile their savings into survival, the poor family living in a trailer, with chickens roaming their front yard, and a garden, will fare better when the shit hits the fan.

The preacher man says it's the end of time
And the Mississippi River she's a-goin' dry
The interest is up and the Stock Market's down
And you only get mugged if you go downtown

I live back in the woods, you see
My woman and the kids, and the dogs, and me
I got a shotgun, a rifle, and a 4-wheel drive
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

I can plow a field all day long
I can catch catfish from dusk 'til dawn
We make our own whiskey and our own smoke, too
Ain't too many things these old boys can't do
We grow good old tomatoes and homemade wine
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

Because you can't starve us out
And you can't make us run
'Cause we're them old boys raised on shotgun
And we say "grace" and we say "Ma'am"
And if you ain't into that we don't give a damn

We came from the West Virginia coal mines
And the Rocky Mountains and the western skies
And we can skin a buck; we can run a trotline,
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

I had a good friend in New York City
He never called me by my name, just hillbilly
My grandpa taught me how to live off the land
And his taught him to be a businessman
He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights
And I'd send him some homemade wine

But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife
For 43 dollars my friend lost his life
I'd love to spit some beech nut in that dude's eyes
And shoot him with my old .45
'Cause a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

'Cause you can't starve us out and you can't make us run
'Cause we're them old boys raised on shotgun
And we say "grace" and we say "Ma'am"
And if you ain't into that we don't give a damn

We're from North California and South Alabama
And little towns all around this land
And we can skin a buck; we can run a trotline,
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive
Country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

Funny they never plan their apocalyptic survival retreats to be in Africa. Oh, because it is already apocalyptic there. You would have all your shit stolen and then have to spend the end-of-days living on a rock.

Utter fantasy. I really think that when these people reach elite status their ability to think logically goes out the window. Probably because they do not have to struggle to survive anymore.

Engineers have already started planning and building.

50,000 Litres of water, Generator, 10,000Litres LPG, solar panels and two bomb shelters - all on a platform built to withstand earthquakes.

Buy a couple of rooms, if you don't owe the guv more than €50,000. 

If you do, you will be stopped at the airport and they will take away your passport. Preppers don't stop at food and water!

Live with me amongst you, and there will be light at night and occasionally or maybe all the time, hot running water.

In addition I can make weapons, and a few explosives. Plus I'm thin, don't eat a lot and probably don't taste nice...

Choose. You can live as you are now. Or you can live with many of the conveniences you were used to.

O.K. We take that structure there, set up a perimeter, post guards until we can find the requisites to make some security sensors.. Now. We need a van for supplies...

I've already made that deal with several "communities" that I regularly interact with, (just in case).

These billionaire worries are easy to solve. There was probably an old Star Trek episode about this event. Story line: Stupid people on a planet have been living underground forever for some forgotten reason. If I had a bunker in NZ my biggest worry would be my ex-guards or the locals concreting me in. The easiest escape for a rich guy is buy a house in a safe area under a corporate name. Then visit a few weekends a year and say hello. When the 'event' happens you'll be a local.

Zyklon B is hard to find these days. Back in the Seventies I worked for a large commercial greenhouse and we used it (different brand) for control of red spider mites. After we watered, the foreman, wearing a gas mask, would sprinkle the cyanide solution on the wet concrete floors of the aisles. Then we would lock it up for a few hours. 

Years later, I worked for a Hamilton Standard as an expediter. I would have to walk into the plating department to check the progress of job lots I was tracking. The floors were crunchy with spilled cyanide granules. It looks like fertilizer. Thirty pound cardboard drums of it were stacked everywhere.

If somebody dumped 100 pounds of this stuff mixed with any acid (vinegar) into a ventilation shaft, it would negate all the plans the billionaires have.

Hey we got any explosives experts here? What about chemical experts? How long would it take to concoct something to smoke those fuckers out of the hole?

Oh forget it. They won't live that long. The thing about having money and no real world skills, is you need people to fix shit and keep it running. And those security types they paid high dolla for? Well they will be the first to dump you in a hole and take over.

I found out today that someone I thought was a friend is a waste of time. Sad day, I have known this person, casually, for 14 years. It hurts to admit we have nothing in common and no real shared values. Time to go to the range. Time to join the local ham radio club. You meet like-minded people doing things that you think are important and valuable.

My grandfather was a ham radio geek. I miss that old buzzard. I didn't ask enough questions when he was around. Stupid, me. Yeah, I am kicking my self in the butt. He wasn't much of a talker. I should have pushed and asked more questions. I should have said fuck the world and lived with him for a year on his camp up in Maine.
