Excerpt from Lew Rockwell
Right now, the biggest risks for a bankruptcy or collapse is in the these states, based upon the ratio between what Baldwin terms “makers” and “takers.” Basically, the socialist state is enveloping all prosperity:
• New Mexico – 148 dependents per private sector worker
• West Virginia – 116 dependents per private sector worker
• California – 114 dependents per private sector worker
• Mississippi – 111 dependents per private sector worker
• New York – 108 dependents per private sector worker
• Arkansas – 103 dependents per private sector worker
Detroit and Chicago top the lists of cities who wouldn’t be healthy in the ratio of makers/takers either, and would crumble in a debt crunch.
There’s an issue of race that the author is avoiding. States with heavy concentrations of nonwhites are being bled to death. It’s not socialism, as he claims, but the pandering to nonwhites by politicians.
Once things go downhill, violence, crime, looting, riots and the like become chronic problems. The police state presence is also an issue, and society goes on edge.
Everyone can feel the sinking depths, and order is about to implode. When things go primal, you do not want to be around to get caught up in it.
Being inside a major city on the day that the ATMs stop spitting out cash, or EBT cards don’t work will be an incredibly dangerous day. Relying upon government bureaucracy and functioning technology to meet your vital needs is a good position to be in during an emergency situation – be it economic crisis, hurricane, power grid failure or something else.
The article goes on to give general advice on how to stay safe from the zombies that will be roaming the cities after the collapse.
