MAY YOU LIVE IN INTERESTING TIMES

MAY YOU LIVE IN INTERESTING TIMES

May you live in interesting times, is said to be an old Chinese curse, well we are cursed. I cannot think of a more interesting time to live in modern history say from WWI to today. Horrible tragedy has happened in the recent past, but you had to be in those unfortunate parts of the world to suffer the effects. May you live in interesting times. Today we are all braced for the next assault on us – no matter where you live. It has not happened yet, but it seems that it will be defying the odds if it does not happen. I am looking at the following, ISIS, Lone Wolf Terrorist attacks, Ebola, USA totally open to any and everyone walking across the border, World Financial Crisis, America in decline and stepping out of the role as world police (Protector), China’s military threats to all its neighbors and to the USA, Iran’s nuclear threat to Israel, the middle east, Europe and possibly the USA, Russia’s military aggression to its neighbors and the North Pole region, keeping in mind Russia is still a major nuclear power. Have I forgotten something here? Oh Climate Change! Am I exaggerating these threats? Any need to worry at all? I don’t think I’m exaggerating and I’m worried. I honestly believe that every one of these threats will come to fruition. I have always believed that one should be prepared for the natural emergencies thrown at us by nature, but that has always been a short time fix. When my power goes out do to bad weather, I know a few days later we will all be good. If my power goes out do to a world war, it is going to be lights out for good or for a few years. Now I am no longer laughing at the preppers, they are wacko paranoid, but that may very well be who will carry on human life on earth. Please tell me where I am going wrong here.
