The US Dollar, economic collapse, and US invasion.
I find it wild that US Dollar is not backed by anything other than the faith in it not collapsing, power, and authority by the United States government. It’s sad too, because many America’s actually still believe that our money is backed gold. I think that this makes it more prone to collapsing if things start to get out of hand because essentially it is worth nothing. I guess that fiat money has it’s good reasons but there are also many downsides to it. I know that people may not agree with me but it still gives me an uneasy feeling knowing that. It’s why people that prep or prepare for the dollar collapse and other things of that nature buy gold and silver because if something along the lines of a government collapse or any other SHTF thing were to happen those things will still have value no matter what. In a catastrophic time like that food, fuel, supplies and other things of that nature will be much more important because you can’t eat or drink gold, you can’t fuel or power things with it, and it won’t protect you. Trade and bartering will be in play. Food, water, weapons, fuel, skills or trades, and other things of that nature will be traded for things people need or until some kind of currency is established among people if the government hasn’t already. The same thing applies for other countries as far as the SHTF aspect of it goes. If a currency collapses and is backed by some form of precious metal or something else of that nature it can be fixed easier in my opinion because all the government has to do is introduce a new currency and redistribute it to it’s country. For the United States I think that it would be harder though because as I said it is backed by power and authority and a simple belief in faith that in won’t collapse. But if the United States (government) is in a state of chaos or distress then it will most likely be more vulnerable and have less belief in it by it’s people or other countries because something like that happened which could lead to something bigger, something alone the lines of the United States being attacked. Now I don’t think this is that big of a threat or a factor because it is highly unlikely that we would be invaded but there is always a chance and a possibility. There are only 2 major countries that really even have the power and capability to do it and I don’t think either of them would anyways. The countries being China and Russia. The first country, China would be unlikely to invade us because in my opinion China would be more interested in taking the United States over economically instead of actually invading. This means that the United States could possibly be in so much debt that China basically owns everything in the United States and controls us by our money because they own it. The second country, Russia would be unlikely to invade the United States because they simply don’t have interest in that right now or reason to. Why would Russian travel that far to invade the United States, there isn’t a reason for it, this isn’t the Cold War. I think that if they had a reason to or wanted to they would be more likely to attack an allie of ours rather than actually step foot on American soil. Now them launching Nuclear missiles is a different story but again highly unlikely for many reasons, something I won’t get into in this post. This was just some thoughts by me because I was thinking about the topic. An economic or government collapse is the most likely thing to happen as far as a SHTF situation goes and even though I don’t think it will happen depending on a few things but there is always a possibility and a chance and that is why I believe in being prepared, because there is always a chance that something can happen, always. Now how do you prepare for something like that? I’m no expect but that is a whole different post and topic which I won’t get into on this post either.
