Preparing for a Dystopian America?

As I was reading about American society unraveling toward dystopia in The Fourth Turning, I recalled the chart on your left created by a good friend of mine, Ian Gordon. Ian and I recently compared notes on The Fourth Turning written by William Strauss and Neil Howe in 1998. It was a prophecy of revolutionary change in America, which the Democratic party now champions & supports via Marxists, anti-Christian organizations like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.  Following are two quotes from The Fourth Turning: 

“At some point, America’s short-term Crisis psychology will catch up to the long-term post-Unraveling fundamentals. This might result in a Great Devaluation, a severe drop in the market price of most financial and real assets. This devaluation could be a short but horrific panic, a free-falling price in a market with no buyers. Or it could be a series of downward ratchets linked to political events that sequentially knock the supports out from under the residual popular trust in the system. As assets devalue, trust will further disintegrate, which will cause assets to devalue further, and so on. Every slide in asset prices, employment, and production will give every generation cause to grow more alarmed.

“In retrospect, the spark might seem as ominous as a financial crash, as ordinary as a national election, or as trivial as a Tea Party. The catalyst will unfold according to a basic Crisis dynamic that underlies all of these scenarios: An initial spark will trigger a chain reaction of unyielding responses and further emergencies. The core elements of these scenarios (debt, civic decay, global disorder) will matter more than the details, which the catalyst will juxtapose and connect in some unknowable way. If foreign societies are also entering a Fourth Turning, this could accelerate the chain reaction. At home and abroad, these events will reflect the tearing of the civic fabric at points of extreme vulnerability – problem areas where America will have neglected, denied, or delayed needed action.”

Some conservatives pin their hopes for prolonging the American Constitution on Donald Trump’s re-election. I don’t because it is clear the revolution was underway in earnest with an attempt by the U.S. Intelligence to overthrow our President from the moment he entered the White House. But true to George Orwell’s 1984, objective truth is whatever the propaganda machinery tells you it is so you don’t know what it is true. Strauss and Howe suggested in 1998 that the forces that would end America as it still exists on paper would begin in the middle of the 2000s. Though it’s unclear to most, it actually began clandestinely with the election of Barak Obama in 2008. Ian Gordon’s Kondratieff chart was right on target with an inflection point for the next depression and massive bull market in gold. With the dot com crisis in 2000 and the housing crisis of 2008, the table was set for America’s first black President and the start of the Fourth Turning. And now America is entering the final stages of U.S. dollar hegemony, a global depression and the bull market of a lifetime for gold. Finally in 2020 with Depression levels of unemployment and a no policy option but to hyperinflate the dollar, the Fourth Turning is rearing its ugly head. Accelerating money creation since Nixon “freed us” from the gold standard in 1971 has enabled America to finance a blood-thirsty war industry that has killed hundreds of thousands of innocent foreign human beings and overthrown foreign governments, some of which were elected by their citizens. In addition, with seemingly endless money creation the U.S. funded the murder of more than 61 million infants in the wombs of young women. I believe the sins of our past are about to catch up with us as we have ruined our nation financially, spiritually and morally. That is paving the way for the gold bull market of a lifetime. But with it a dystopian world is evolving that will cause millions of Americans to seek answers from God more than gold.
