A Collapse Has Already Occurred, the Majority Are Just Too Distracted to Notice

Collapse, collapse, collapse… Seems to be a familiar meme these days. It is hard to peruse any alternative news, for any length of time, without learning about the pending collapse event. I, myself, have fallen prey in the past to the hype surrounding the latest “expert” opinion on the direction that this crippled nation is heading, especially the timing of its demise. Here is the conclusion that I have reached about this “inevitable” collapse event. If a collapse does occur, the “experts” and pundits who cycle through alternative media HAVE NO CLUE as to when it’s going to happen. The people who do know when, and if, it’s going to happen, do not editorialize within the sphere of alternative news. I’m pretty sure of that. But, I digress. I’m not clairvoyant and there may very well be a collapse event. However, I submit to you that we, as a nation, have collapsed already.
Whether it’s an apocalyptic zombie outbreak, or life without people, there is no shortage of propaganda available to stoke the collapse fears of the “un-washed masses.” It makes for great entertainment, and it certainly causes the cash register to ring for those on the retail end. (Allow me to pause here to say that I am pro-prepping and preparedness; and as long as it’s legal and moral, who am I to judge how a person makes a buck.) However, I also contend that all of the focus which has been paid to a collapse event has given rise to a, “cannot see the forest because of the trees” mentality for most.
