(CanadianPress) – Stephen Hawking is suggesting the survival of the human race will likely depend on changing neighbourhoods and moving to another planet.
The famed physicist says in the centuries ahead, it will be hard for Earthlings to avoid a disaster of biblical proportion on their home turf, and he recommends they avoid putting all their eggs in one basket – or planet.
Hawking writes on the website BigThink.com that he sees great dangers ahead for the human race, noting such close calls as the 1962 Cuban missile crisis.
He warns about a ballooning population using up the Earth’s finite resources and the growing ability of humans to alter their environment for good, or ill. Read entire article

(OilPrice) – Internecine civil wars are underway almost everywhere within the West, and most virulently in the United States of America. They are not yet kinetic wars, but wars of grinding prepositioning, the kind which lead to foregone conclusions without a shot being fired. They are wars of survival, nonetheless, because the basic architecture for national strength is being altered incrementally or dramatically. And, in many cases, consciously.
Almost all of the strategic restructuring of states is occurring in large part as a result of an accumulation of wealth; an accumulation and value of which is seen as permanent. This has resulted in the hubris — expressed by those who did not earn it — of triumph in the Cold War. This is a Western phenomenon because the widespread growth of wealth, the creation of freedoms classically associated with democracy, resulted — as it must inevitably result — in complacencies which in turn led to a “vote too far”: the extension of the democratic franchise to those who do not help in the creation of wealth.
Once the voting franchise of the West reached the point where those who sought benefits outweighed those who created benefits, the tipping point was reached. The situation of de facto “class warfare” thus emerges automatically under such circumstances, and the envy of those who take against those who provide erupts into “rights” and “entitlement”. By deifying “democracy” above justice, the enfranchised non-producers could always outvote the producers. We are at this point. The result can only be collapse, or restructuring around a Cæsar or a Bonaparte until, eventually, a productive hierarchy reappears, usually after considerable pain. Read entire article
(NaturalNews) – Back in the 1990s, the idea of growing food in the suburbs, getting “off the grid,” and learning survival skills was thought to be something only militia members and lone rangers living in the woods would do. Today, a new type of survivalism has emerged in light of economic and political turmoil that people from all walks of life are embracing. Continue reading →
(Kitco) – FOREWORD: At certain times, focusing on the big picture is important not just for investment success, but for personal welfare, and even survival. We believe such times are here. It is estimated that 98% of Americans have never held a gold coin in their hands. Yet 100% of Americans regularly handle Federal Reserve Notes. From a contrarian standpoint, the financial message from those two statistics is clear. Even so, gold is much more than money or an investment medium; it stands for liberty and throughout history has facilitated escape and ensured freedom. Continue reading →
While the rest of the world was out shopping and being happy mindless consumers, We Are Change Colorado and Dr. Len Horowitz and his team held a Vaccine awareness and protest rally at Denver Capital. While we were waiting for others to arrive Dr. Horowitz decided to let a little insight into what he feels about the Cosmos. Very Very interesting conversation for sure! Continue reading →
One does not have to be a prophet to know that we are on the precipice of some potentially catastrophic–or at the very least, challenging–days. In fact, most of us are already in challenging days, and some are already enduring catastrophic events. That is, if one would call being out of work, losing one’s home, facing life-threatening medical conditions without any prospect of medical insurance, several families being forced to live in one house due to homes being foreclosed, etc., catastrophic.

Consider murder mystery novels, TV forensic dramas, sensational news stories, and political murder (assassination). Discovering and prosecuting the guilty, “bringing them to justice” is the goal. Exploring and analyzing antecedents and psychopathology may be undertaken by a few, typically writers and intellectuals. When noticed at all by the public, such critics tend to be summarily marginalized as apologists. Continue reading →

“Build it and they will come” is the phrase behind most of our dreams, but we have failed to fall in love with life so we built our fantasies on the ever-shifting sands of inauthentic lives. We should not be surprised then, that everything is crumbling now, or that there are almost no answers anywhere because we put our faith in all the wrong places, and especially in the wrong people. Continue reading →
A very dangerous thing occurred last Thursday and Friday. The Federal Reserve monetized roughly 40% of the nation’s enormous debt. This means that the Fed printed money to flow into the economy in order to cover over 40% of the debt burden the U.S. now carries. Continue reading →
One has to wonder why people never learn from the lessons of history. Why is it that the rulers and enforcers of laws turn a blind eye to the atrociousness and retributions leveled upon them from days past, justified by the brutality of power madness currently sweeping the landscape?

As our seas become laden with plastic trash and 75% of our fishing grounds are depleted ~ we must face the fact that we are rapidly depleting what Nature provides us and that our eco-system does not have borders. Our actions effect everything and we must unite and cooperate with each other and nature ~ or we will perish Continue reading →
These are good days for survivalists, those dour predictors of dire times who’ve said all along we’d better prepare for the worst.
With people losing jobs, homes and life savings through no fault of their own, and with natural disasters, oil shortages and terrorists in the news, those long-predicted grim times may have arrived. Continue reading →

The 3 “B”s. You are going to need bullets to survive. As the dollar collapses and unemployment soars, the steely eye Zombies will be coming to rob, rape and pillage what you have. You are going to need bullets for hunting as you run your trap and snare line. This is called opportunity hunting. You take advantage of any animal you see and add it to the cooking pot. Your wife or girlfriend should have basic knowledge of shooting and loading all the guns in your house. Continue reading →

The “Panic of ’08” that has gripped the financial markets is but one symptom of a much greater crisis. Empire America is collapsing. The crash is under way. Those in denial refuse to see it. Others pin their hopes on politicians, bankers and brokers to miraculously repair the irreparable. Continue reading →
Aquatic dead zones, stretches of water where little or nothing can survive, have increased by a third in little over a decade. More than 400 dead zones were identified last year, covering a total area of 95,000 square miles, about the size of New Zealand. Continue reading →
