It's not. We can all as individuals, prepare for that. We can take steps to avoid losing everything for which we worked our entire lives.
It is the loss of freedom that historically always comes in the wake of wars, market crashes, and other crises at the hands of our elected leaders.
Expect another huge loss of freedom to come after the next stock market crash. The video below mentions this along with pointing out that this crash is coming soon, it will be devastating, and the current stock market bubble was made possible by our government's policies.
Check out this video to see how wars that were supposed to "protect our freedom" ended up costing us our freedom in the end.
Only cavemen were totally free. Governments cannot grant freedom to anyone. They can only take it away.
Government is a necessary evil. The only way you can control tyranny it is to limit the size of government. Our founding fathers understood this. Their descendants forgot it. We'll pay for it, with our freedom, fortune, and lives.
Freedom is the most valuable thing a human being can have, yet western societies have treated it the same way a person treats a poorly made luxury car - Pay dearly for it in the beginning, enjoy it for a few years, neglect it for a few more years, and end up just giving it away in the end.
