Do you think a large, country/world changing SHTF event will happen in your lifetime?

(SHTF event is one that resets all or a portion of civilization, with a likely significant loss of life (100K+))

I honestly do not foresee any type of cataclysmic event hitting the USA that would kill 100,000 people. Yes we have influenza epidemics, the prospect of thermonuclear war, a nuclear meltdown, an EMP or geomagnetic storm caused by a coronal mass ejection on the Sun, tsunamis or a 9.0+ earthquake, but those once-in-a-lifetime events are probably even rarer than once in a lifetime....

What does concern me is income inequality gaps increasing, poverty increasing, people on food stamps increasing, real unemployment increasing, taxes increasing, crime increasing, population increasing, pollution increasing, and propensities towards violence and psychotic cruelty increasing....

**** homini lupus - man is wolf to man. It was true when all roads led to Rome and it is still true today when no war can be won unless the enemies can defeat America and its Allies....

I worry most about "hungry people don't stay hungry for long."

The primal instinct of self-preservation is so strong I think few will risk their own necks.

A madman may rise and cause TEOTWAWKI -- if Hitler had nukes in late 1944, we might all be speaking German, at least where life was sustainable outside of the atomic half-life decay zones.... Rogue nations with nukes are a real threat to be vigilant against.

But I mostly worry about rioting, looting, mobs out of control until law and order (or peace, as the case may be) can be restored.

When the creeps become the creepers, that is what we should all prepare for.

After all, it happens every single night....
