There’s a term often used in prepper and survivalist circles: TEOTWAWKI, short for The End of the World as We Know It. Of all the potential stuff-hitting-the-fan scenarios to prepare for, it is the worst.

Well friends, I have some bad news: the current moment is a TEOTWAWKI scenario.

That might seem alarmist or extreme, but I’d like to ask you: is the world anything like what you remember in December 2019? There’s no sports to speak of. There aren’t any movies. You might not even have a job anymore. Your vacation plans have probably been curtailed. Parties aren’t really a thing. If school is in session in the fall, it’ll involve kids only going a couple of days a week, staying inside bubbles, and wearing masks. Absolutely nothing is “normal.”

Some are going on as if everything is fine, and they’re getting sick in record numbers.

People are fighting in the streets. Violence is hitting levels not seen in years. Everywhere you look there’s chaos and people demanding revolution.

We’re facing a second Great Depression. Even the most positive serious analyses anticipate high unemployment for a decade. And with that will come more unrest and instability.

The world you lived in circa December 2019 is gone. The sooner you come to grips with that, the better off you’ll be.

Do you feel fine?
