Orlov, a Russian-born author of books that have caused some to call him a “collapsitarian,” says it sure looks like it.
Funny, I’ve been thinking about the situation, not just in Germany (Austria, Sweden too), but here over the last few days while busy with other duties, and have coincidentally also had a couple of people (in completely different spheres of my life) talk about the need to be prepared. Then along comes Fred tonight sending me this blog post at ClubOrlov by one Dmitry Orlov with more food for thought.
I’ve snipped just a couple of paragraphs from Orlov’s essay entitled, ‘An Exit Strategy for Traitors’ about the coming collapse of Germany (who among our readers thinks the idea is truly nuts, that Germany could collapse—-not many I presume—well, except for maybe those in the refugee industrial complex who lurk here):
(Emphasis is mine)
I find myself in a nightmare unable to wake up. Most people feel helpless and unwilling to accept the sad truth: we have been betrayed by everyone (except perhaps the police and the military) we entrusted with our safety and our hopes for the future. Even though the end of the global economy in its current form seemed a given to me, this kind of treason and ill intent to bring it all down took me by surprise. Among the twenty or so people I talked to about this in confidence, absolutely everyone is convinced that this is heading toward civil war—and fast! The only question remaining is whether the Germans start it, or the “refugees,” or some other party. We are one major terror attack away from sheer chaos. I have heard from several people connected to European security circles that the illegal weapons market is completely sold out, with many dealers holding on to their weapons for their own personal use. This is a rumour, but since we have been forced to depend on hearsay for any real information right now, I tend to believe it.
By now the best outcome is a civil war within months, reversing this development. The worst outcome is complete disintegration of European nations within the next few years, rendering large parts of the continent ungovernable. The divorce between the government and the people is almost complete by now. No sane person believes the press or the politicians.
I daresay that many reading these words see the same happening right here in the US.
Read it all and be sure to see the comments where many dismiss Orlov (while Orlov goes about his personal business of warning and gathering in what he needs to survive just in case) as “the rumour-mongering of a far-right fantasist.” But, tell me what is the downside of working to head off such a possibility right here in the US? It seems to me we should believe our eyes as we watch Europe floundering and do what we need to do here. I don’t see a downside to being prepared, do you?
Go here for our extensive archive on the ‘Invasion of Europe.’ By the way, Orlov says it is all happening so suddenly for Europe, but we have been following the migration crisis build for several years. There was time to head it off, if EU leaders had had the will to head it off.
