Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they're not after me!


Interesting website, "
We offer fortified Structures that are fireproof, bulletproof, with underground bunkers attached as a underground community. These select communities are offering realistic protection and resources to survive in any situation. The community consists of confidential planning, design and covert construction for secure survival community."

History tells us that when a civilization/country reaches a certain population threshold, coupled with technological/industrial advances and the inability to sustain that population, invariably revolution follows. Granted this is an over-simplified explanation of a series of political, economic, military, and cultural situations.

There is enough historical precedent to support this idea, coupled with the fear, resentment, anger and paranoia over the current political and economic situation, is it any wonder that people will believe that something drastic will happen?

I have to admit, I probably would be a bit more likely to give this 'company' some legitimacy if they weren't running an ad on Craigslist, but that doesn't mean many won't take them seriously.

I don't consider myself a conspiracy nut or paranoid, okay maybe a little paranoid, but I've long held the belief that at some point our country will face a revolution. I don't necessarily mean an armed one, as the black out in Southern California showed us so clearly, our infrastructure is vulnerable. Whether from anarchist hackers or terrorists, the idea that someone could take out all of our technology is just not that far fetched. Neither does it mean it would be bloodless, can you imagine the chaos that would follow? Everything in our country runs on technology, power, internet, military, law enforcement, fire department, medical, traffic controls, (air and land), and the list goes on.

So what do you think? Is this a service you think you need? Or do you think it is nuts? Or have you made your own plans for when/if something happens?
