14 signs that the collapse of our modern world has already begun

(NaturalNews) A lot of people believe the world as we know it is going to end on December 23, 2012. Nonsense, I say. The far more honest answer is that the end of the world as we know it has already begun. And it doesn’t mean the end of the world; it means the closing of one era and the birth of a new one. It is a transition between the ages. This particular transition, however, promises to be the most tumultuous and costly transition humankind has ever seen.

But don’t wait around for December 2012 to look for the signs. Here are 14 signs that the world as we know it is unraveling now. We are living through the end of one era and the birth of a new one. In the future, they’ll look back and call this all one moment in history, but when you’re living through it, it seems to move forward at almost a snail’s pace. But make no mistake: We are living through the opening chapters of the end of the world as we know it, and on the other side of all this will emerge a new world that’s very different from the one we know today.

#1 – Tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis – At first it seemed like a fluke; but now it’s a pattern. The weather is becoming increasingly extreme. Over 120 tornadoes recently struck the U.S. Midwest. Texas is on fire and suffering through an extreme drought. And where there aren’t fires and droughts, there are floods. This is only the beginning… watch for more freak weather over the next 18 months.

#2 – The silence of the bees – Colony Collapse Disorder continues to accelerate across North America. We already know it’s being caused in part by chemical pesticides(and possibly worsened by GMOs), but the chemical industry is engaged in a full-on cover-up to deny this truth while the pollinators of our world suffer a devastating population collapse. (http://www.naturalnews.com/028218_pesticides_honeybees.html)

#3 – failure of nuclear science – The Fukushima catastrophe proves one thing: Scientists are dangerously arrogant in their planning of large-scale projects, and they fail to account for the awesome power of Mother Nature. Nuclear science promised us clean, greenenergy– but now it has delivered a silent, invisible poison that infecting our planet.

#4 – The vicious pursuit of Wikileaks – In an age of such rampant deceit, there is no room for the truth. So those who tell the truth (Wikileaks) are viciously pursued as if they were criminals.

#5 – The rise of the medical police state – The armed SWAT raids on Maryanne Godboldo in Detroit are only the beginning (http://www.naturalnews.com/032091_Maryanne_Godboldo_gun_rights.html). The truth is that the medical system uses guns to force its vaccines and chemotherapy onto children and teens across America. The medical system has become so utterly useless, corrupt and dangerous that it must actually invoke guns in peoples’ facesjust to “convince” people to take its medicine. This is a gunpoint-enforced medical monopoly that exists as a threat to our health and our freedoms.

#6 – The increasing frequency of food shortages and crop failures - Notice the spike in food prices? That’s just the beginning: Food prices will continue to skyrocket in the years ahead due to extreme weather, the loss of pollinators and the global contamination of crops by GMOs. Real food is becoming increasingly scarce in our world. You might want to think about starting a home garden…

#7 – The runaway destruction of the world by energy companies – The radioactive fallout from Fukushima isn’t the only way in which energy companies are destroying our world: Don’t forget about the Deep water Horizon and the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico — a spill that isn’t over, by the way. They’re still spraying Corexit in the Gulf one year later!

#8 – The continued GMO contamination of our planet – This may be the worst chapter in the coming collapse: The widespread genetic pollution of our planet through GMOs. This is a crime against nature and against humanity. It is a “gene spill” that may never be contained as it spreads its deadly DNA across the world’s foodcrops, leading to crop failures and starvation (http://www.naturalnews.com/032167_gene_spill_GMOs.html). The use of GMOs is the closest thing to “Satanic” that you’ll find in modern agriculture. The agenda behind this is pure evil.

#9 – The tyranny and criminal crackdowns targeting real food  - When you can’t even sell honest farm food to your neighbors without being targeted and arrested by the cops, something is terribly wrong with the world. But this is happening today, all across America. Now the feds are even targeting the Amish! (http://www.naturalnews.com/029322_raw_milk_Amish.html)

#10 – The escalation of the counterfeiting of the money supply – In a failed economic system approaching collapse, the moronic leaders can only think of “solutions” that actually accelerate their own downfall. The runaway counterfeiting of money by the Federal Reserve (with its “quantitative easing” and other counterfeit methods) is a classic sign that the end of our current system is fast approaching. The economic inanities are obvious to anyone who can still do math.

#11 – The plummeting intelligence of the masses - One of the most disturbing signs that we’re already in the collapse is the great dumbing-down of the masses. The drooling, CNN-watching television zombies who dominate our landscape offer absolutely nothing of value to the world. They are the “mindless consumers” who get vaccinated, watch television and eat processed, pasteurized junk food. They’re on psychiatric meds and believe everything the government tells them. Most of these people, of course, won’t make it through the collapse.

#12 – The complete and utter fabrication of the mainstream news – Much of the mainstream news is now utterly and completely fabricated these days: The reporting on Obama’s long-form birth certificate; the news about the war in Libya; the coverage of the economy and the U.S.debt… it’s all so utterly false and unbelievable that an intelligent person watching the news can’t help but explode with laughter. It is a sign of this collapse that the information sources relied upon by the masses are unable to report the truth anymore and must resort to weaving politically expedient fictions on everything from health care and medicine to the fate of the U.S. dollar itself.

#13 – The ongoing pharmaceutical pollution of our world – Beyond the GMO contamination and the radiation contamination of our world, we are also experiencing the mass pharmaceutical contamination of our planet. It’s not just the pharma factories that dump their products into the rivers (http://www.naturalnews.com/025415_water_Big_Pharma_chemicals.html); it’s also the fact that well over half the population is now taking drugs almost daily, and those drugs pass right through their bodies and end up in the watersupply where they contaminate the fish (http://www.naturalnews.com/025933.html). Even beyond that, the drugs end up in the human sewage sludgethat’s packaged and sold as “organic soil!” (http://www.naturalnews.com/029504_organic_biosolids_toxic.html)

#14 – The radioactive contamination of the global food supply – Here’s one that’s really insidious: The global food supply is now contaminated with the radioactive fallout from Fukushima. We’re told the levels are “low,” but we’re not told the truth of how radioactive cesium isotopes persist in the food supply for centuries. How is the human race going to survive its exposure to CT scans, radioactive food, chests X-rays, TSA body scanners and even the secret DHS mobile X-ray vans that can penetrate your body with X-rays as you’re walking into a football stadium? The total radiation burden on the human race is now reaching a point of mass infertility. That may be the whole idea, actually.

It’s accelerating, too

December, 2012 may be a useful date as some sort of mid-point in the crisis, or perhaps as a trigger date for some further acceleration of society’s rapid unraveling. But make no mistake: We are already living in the collapse of our modern world.And you have a front-row seat!(Exciting, huh?)

Think about what’s happening around you these days. These are the signs of the last, desperate clutches of civilization built on utterly unsustainable practices that don’t value life on our world. These are the End Times of the corporate oligarchy; the monopolistic for-profit corporation machine that destroyed everything in our world in exchange for a slightly higher quarterly earnings report.

In the quest for more money, humanity has sacrificed its food supply, its pollinators, it’s oceans, forests and soils. Greed-driven humans have used other humans as medical experiments and cannon fodder. We have created wars to sell more bombs, and we’ve invented disease to sell psychiatric chemicals.

These are the practices of a failed civilization… and one whose days are numbered. Watching it all crumble is far more interesting than watching it continue its destructive ways, of course, because those of us paying attention realize a future civilization must rise in the place of this one after the collapse.

Say goodbye to the false power of institutions

It would be nice if our future leaders remembered the importance of liberty and personal responsibility, of course. The answer to all the world’s problems, it turns out, isfreedom– freedom in medicine, freedom in economics and freedom from government tyranny.

Because, let’s face it: The root cause of most these problems that are bringing down our world now is bad government. It is bad government (Big Government) that approved the GMOs. Bad government enforced the medical monopoly and allowed the pesticides to kill the honey bees. Bad government drove us into inescapable debt and costly foreign wars. Bad government outlawed health freedom and protected the monopolistic practices of the food companies,drug companies and chemical companies.

The downfall of modern human civilization is, as you probably guessed, also the downfall of the very idea that Big Government creates a better society. Because if there’s one idea that needs to stay dead after the collapse, it’s the idea that We the People somehow need another group of people (government workers) to live off our hard work while hounding us with their false authority, directing every little detail of our lives.

What we need in our world isn’t more government, but more freedom. If we had freedom, integrity and personal responsibility, we wouldn’t even be facing the global collapse that has already begun. But alas, the human race is an infant species and it must learn some lessons the hard way, it seems.

This lesson should be long remembered: If you let the corporations, the banks and the governments run your economies, your farms and your lives, they will enslave you and steal your future while you sleep; they will inject silent poisons into the very world around you until you awaken one day to find that all you created has been destroyed. They will promise you paradise but deliver only death.Beware of any entity that is not a living person– no government, no institution, no corporation has a soul, nor a heart, nor a conscience. They are forces of organized destruction that decimate those things we hold dear while delivering to us things that will only enslave us or harm us.

Beware the corporation; the government; the non-profit institution working as a front group for industry. Never allow yourself to be ruled over by any institution which exists only as a fictional construct organized from the projection of human greed.

And be ready for the acceleration of the collapse. Because if you are reading this,you are the future of the human race. You have a duty to stay alive, keep your genes intact, and be around to help create the Next Society after this one crumbles into history.

  1. Great article, but needs a few corrections in grammar…

  2. Wow what an eyes opening article…I’m aware of these changes and aware of the impact, I feel so helpless because I do not know how to make the masses aware of whatsgoing on, all I can say is be vigilant,question everything, and get informed, and look at things for waht they are “it is what it is”

  3. Graduate Student

    I agree with the punctuation police. Also, it’s always good to cite more than one source for your thesis. If this had 14 different credible sources for each point, I would be more inclined to share it.

  4. Wow, that’s actually a lot of crap you are talking about.

    Raw Milk? WTF?
    Raw milk is “attacked” because it is harmful… educate yourself about it.

    Dumbing down the masses?
    Well we were never any smarter! People are stupid morons since they exist. Just go back 20 years or so and it’s the fucking same.
    There was never an era of great enlightenment. Actually thanks to wikipedia and the internet people are better informed than ever!

    The other points can be counted as half legit, but most of them are just over simplifications and misunderstandings of the problems…

    • Perhaps you could explain why raw milk is dangerous? People have been drinking it for thousands of years without any significant problems, so why all of a sudden is it dangerous?

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VbwYqV4Eog

      Watch this about raw milk.
      Explains it better than i could with my own words.

    • These 14 are a rather mixed bag of truth and possible nonsense. Raw milk has been dangerous for centuries and Pasteur and his pasteurization of milk has saved many many lives. It was and remains an important scientific advance.

      Yes food prices do rise for a number of reasons. Artificial pricing and supply are a part of the problem as they are protectionist systems to guarantee farmers a proper payment over costs and effort. It’s really quite insane to reduce a food supply in a world where people are starving. Then we subsidize corn in support of the soft drink manufacturers who, in turn, poison us with cheap corn syrup. Nasty!

      And, the ‘government’ supports GMOs which are flagrantly criminal companies putting farmers out of work as the GMOs go after their land. Of course, this is the 1%!

    • Maybe not 14, but the poisoning of the planet has been proceeding nicely, and has been accelerated by our inability to curtain Fukushima.

  5. Want weird weather? In the UK we have had TWO mini tornadoes in two days!
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-17857030

    Tornadoes are VERY rare in UK.

  6. I don’t think that all this is very factual. Sure some of it is but #6 is completely wrong. Rising food costs are due to transportation and current inventory. The government pays farmers to not plant crops on their land so that they can control the overall cost. It is to protect the farmers. Shortages of food have always been going on throughout time. Failed crops are natural.

  7. Case-in-point: Flobbin & Orson are 2 prime examples of how stupid people really are without necessarily being ‘dumbed-down’. You 2 shills are living proof that idiocy is rampant in society – whether drugs are involved or not. Everything in this article is accurate. You 2 are just too fucking stupid to swallow it. You would rather swallow your ‘goodies’ and pretend that everyone else is insane while you claim to be smarter than the publisher. Go back to your flag-wraps and Bible-thumping somewhere else and leave the intelligent of our species to continue to spread the truth to you and your sleeping sheeple.

    • Prove it.
      Simple. I made my case for raw milk, now you present yours without ad hominem attacks and elitist BS.

      “Go back to your flag-wraps and Bible-thumping somewhere else and leave the intelligent of our species to continue to spread the truth to you and your sleeping sheeple.”

      It’s funny how you know nothing about us (and in this case about me) because:

      1) I am an atheist/anti theist.
      2) I support a RBE and the Zeitgeistmovement as well as the venus project.
      3) I used to call people sheeple when i was just as ignorant as everyone else but thought i know it all.
      4) apply critical thinking and stop being a posterboy for elitist conspiracy theorists
      5) thanks for reading!

    • Get of your high horse man, we’re all reading your article. Appreciate the time we gave you and don’t insult those who contradict you, correct them with real evidence and hope that they understand. Just a thought. You will never get a point across appropriately by insulting those who give you some time to hear you out.

  8. FYI, “the scientists” don’t actually design the nuclear reactors OR push the projects through construction. They aren’t “dangerously arrogant” at all. It’s the OTHER people in the nuclear power industry that are a problem. “The scientists” aren’t the architects, industrial engineers or development corporations that ask those guys to cut corners.

    Just FYI-ing ya.

    • I would say that you are more than just fyi’ing him, but showing him how ignorant of he facts he is….I have no problem with people who want to change the world. But I prefer my world changers to be intelligent

  9. claudia de villiers

    This is by far, one of the most rational articles I ever read. Just look around the world! It is unfortunate that some people have said negative comments and don’t believe these points. But then again, there are way more sheeple in the world than people who think for themselves and seek the truth behind what they are told! I guess these are some of them…

  10. Joshua Benjamin

    The only thing I have an issue with in terms of human activity destroying us is the earthquake/tsunami that wrecked part of Japan. It seems that that can’t be controlled for. What is your opinion on the idea that the Bible specifically predicted a lot of these ideas, some in general terms, and some more specifically?

  11. wow, some of these replies are ridiculous! who really cares about the grammar part? how arrogant can you be. Have a bit of appreciation for once in your miserable lives. People always have to come up with a better answer for something when they have no clue! close your eyes and go back to your bubble.

  12. Wow a lot of sleeping sheeple on here. We do not need your genes in the pool. Go back to sleep sheeple people…or…move on….nothing to see around here.
    Them that will not see will not see !

    Great article and ACCURATE.

  13. While there are some interesting points in this article, it seems to me the author sees the world in a significantly more negative fashion than the norm.
    I’m sure the author can claim to be “enlightened” and “awake”, but sitting down and labeling everything as evil and harbinger of the end, hardly seems like the right perspective.

    I hope humans eventually stop wanting money and material goods, that’s about the only way we’ll ever stop the atrocities of our societies, but until then I refuse to say that all the bad things are the only real things. Which is really what this article is saying. It’s an exert of unrelated societal problems all wrapped together and spun as some sort of book of doom.

    If you REALLY want people to wake up, don’t use the same sensationalist tactics, as the media outlets that you criticize, to express your points.

    Lastly, the “big governments” that you criticize are much like the human race. While some parts are less than perfect, others are very necessary. I like the fact that my children are safe from people who would, without fear of authority, seek to harm them for their own benefit or pleasure. This is not sheepish, this is reality. While I consider myself a good person, I would be ignorant to believe that no one else would take advantage of an opportunity to step out of line, if there were no one to clearly draw the lines in the sand.

    -Caid.

  14. Plummeting intelligence? You think rising literacy rates and increased college attendance is a sign that we’re getting dumber?

    Like most articles I read on this site, this one is a mix of unfounded hysteria and actually true claims. The problem with this one seems to be that it doesn’t take history into account. If you look at the world with a pessimistic outlook, of course it’s going to look like it’s on the verge of collapsing. But if you actually look at the facts and the details, then compare them with history, you’ll recognize which patterns are meaningful and which are not.

    The anti-medicine bias is strong as usual. I wonder if any of you vaccinephobes have had polio? If not, I wonder if you know why.

    • I can see a disturbing decrease in intelligence, overall, with a good portion of our population falling for the growing military and a growing want to be extremely aggressive. This problem is growing very fast and it’s very ignorant.

      I see the support for this ignorance in our acceptance in the growing police brutality that is on video and accepted. I see this as a result of Hollywood in its generations of support for war and war machines; its continued support, for the most part, of hunky heroes portrayed by hacks such as Stallone, Schwarzenegger, etc. The support for vast military killings by our so-called military heroes.

      I see a vast stupidity in so-called ‘informed people’ regarding others, in their own countries, as terrorists and ignoring that the true terrorists are the CIA, DEA etc and the damned US military in activities round our world regarded as ‘American Interests’. This is the entropy of American and other Western societies.

    • I do agree, though, that a lot of these points are outlandish and won’t help people trust the postulation as a whole.

      I agree that I’ll take the vaccine over that of contracting Polio, Diphtheria, Small Pox (now eradicated) Influenza, etc.

      People, whose children don’t get vaccines are very lucky that most do get vaccines as these will hinder the transmission of these horrid diseases. These diseases do still occur and someday may become a problem again. Small Pox was eradicated because of it’s simple life cycle. These other diseases will not likely ever be eradicated because they are more complex.

    • I don’t think the author was referring to an actual “drop” in intelligence, but rather the ever growing population of the ignorant. Being intelligent and being informed are two entirely different things.

      Though we’re able to access information quicker and easier than ever before, the overall disinterest among the masses in becoming aware/ being active participants in our world is lower than you would ever expect. Especially for it to be 2012.

      We’re too busy “Keeping up with Kardashians” — we’re absolutely bombarded with distractions — and even when we’re shown the “truth” it’s cloaked in deceit.

      Though we have more people attending college than ever before — think about how easy it is to get in? I don’t know about you, but I know a LOT of idiots with college degrees. A LOT — college is easy. And I don’t know if you’ve met our younger generation (I’ve had the “pleasure” of working with high school students over the course of the last year) but they are NUMBSKULLS who follow popular culture like blind sheep. It’s unfortunate.

      In my opinion, our society isn’t advancing as quickly as our technology — our systems are ancient and need to be reworked. As simple as that.

      And for that very reason, I agree with the author. We’re nearing a collapse — and for the sake of being a conspiracy theorist/ pessimist, when our society is in turmoil (faltering economy, war, 1% have 99% of the world’s wealth, a lack of free health care, racism/hate), our earth’s in turmoil (rising sea levels/warming, animals dying off/acting our of character, drought), and mother nature’s losing it (increased tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunami’s, 80 degree weather in march/ no snow in MN this winter (where I live)) you start to wonder what the HECK is really going on.

    • SeannaBirchwood

      It’s not exactly plummeting intelligence, its a plummeting of critical thinking amongst educated persons. Universities and colleges, and reading used to help us develop means of critical thinking, but I have never seen less-critical people than I do at my university. No one thinks for themselves anymore. It’s just copy what the textbook says and write it verbatum on to a test sheet.

  15. Fraser Sigsworth

    Well on a positive note oh there isnt one,,well if the world was so dumb,how come true activist exists,this article paints a very negetive picture of our world.If it was so negetive and there was no hope i would give up now.But there is hope for the future,humanity might have to undergo a monumental shock and the world change around us ,but we are like the cockroaches always some survive.

  16. Civilization as we know it will collapse for two reasons before any others: first, increasing scarcity of non-renewable resources, particulary oil, and second, debt levels bringing financial collapse of both governments and individuals.
    The future might be similar to some popular books/movies we know like The Hunger Games or The Running Man.. and I think that’s being optimistic.

  17. “Big Government” um…. Government collusion with big business is becausevof heavily lobbied laws to more havily lobby. Also the push for DEREGULATION that allowed GMO’s came universally from the ideological right wing. As does most big money except for Show Business,and not the top echelon of even that. Many of the more protectionist economies have successfully called Monsanto to task and have bans and manditory labeling. Doesnt fit your “Obama…..Bad” narrative though. The democrats suck because they are sellouts,the right is WORSE. Regulation is the only force that can sway the drift towards monopoly by capital intensive industries that produce staples or neccessities,who then have huge marketing capital and political influence. The Magi Market CANNOT AND WILL NOT FIX THAT. And neither will The Superfriends. Also, regulation of industry is an open debaye,but the VERY IDEA is not. Its not socialism either. Get a dictionary. BTW Obama was born in Hawaii and Hitler was not an atheis(he was a lapsed catholic occultdingbat mining centuries of Lutheran anti-semitism) but was a right-winger

    • Hahahaha.

      Regulation is precisely what allowed Monsanto to operate, because of farmer subsidies. If there was no regulation, people could vote with their wallets and NOT go GMO, especially since by the end of the day, using GMO is not cheaper and carries substantial risks. Despite potentially increased revenues, the costs are higher as well — and not just for the GMO user, but for the whole market.

      Regulation is precisely what allows close ties of large corporations to the government, since it creates artificial barriers to the market. Deregulation is, believe it or not, aimed squarely against large corporations and prevent them from occurring but this doesn’t happen overnight, since it’s not possible to just take down a large corp, but it does happen. Deregulation is key, though.

      And honestly, complaining about GMO and famine in the same post? Really?

  18. In what way was Hitler a right-winger, pray tell? State-controlled everything, state-owned industry, public works, all reek of extreme leftist views.

    The legend that Hitler was a right winger only came after World War II when communists wanted to position themselves away from the Nazis. Conveniently for communists, national socialists (note: “socialist”) have eliminated the communist party in the Third Reich, thus allowing people to associate Nazis with the right wing.

  19. Wow!!!! there is a lot of blind brainwashed people on here, i am not calling you sheepls or ignorant, because your not. but you are deffenetly seeing and beleaveing exactly how the ELITE! want you too. You all really beleve in your goverment and country! even when there nontrocitys are clear and right in your face. WOW! better you than me, SUCKAS!!!

  20. I kind of resent the “stupid people who take psychiatric drugs” remark. I get the grand scope of what you’re implying, but I personally take an antidepressant because it’s the only way I can go into a soulless office 40 hours a week where I’m surrounded by inane chatter without banging my head on my desk and crying my eyes out (I can usually wait until I’m in my car for that last part).

  21. @ Me,
    Sounds like you just lost your way, your purpose. You are not alone since there is a very high percentage of people that rely on some form of drug in today’s society.

    Please, please, please, please. Don’t take any government regulated medication unless you absolutely need and only in small doses and far apart. They have done this to citizens on purpose so they are more docile. The purpose you need is to wake up everyday and each day work on taking a peice of YOUR life back. Take CONTROL of your life.

    Empower yourself. Question everything. As harsh as it is, there are not many (and none in government or in large corporations or Banks) that are looking out for you. Since the above mentioned are all in control at the moment, you need to question everything that you are told and use your gut instincts to help learn half truths that we are being told. Once you do, you will realize that you want to live because you will be so mad that you have let this happen. We all have.
    Your purpose right now:
    1. stop the drugs
    2. wake up
    3. Question everything you are told
    4. start researching the truth and listen to yourself

    Your life is your purpose

  22. Your Mileage May Vary

    My family have been growing our own veg for 18 months. We have ditched the car for bikes. The savings go towards buying better quality (organic, grass-fed, local) meat. I have switched to raw milk. We make our own wine. I feel well for the first time in my life. No more acne, back pain, aching bones, bronchitis, asthma, depression, mood swings, IBS, mind fog. And nobody will now believe that our son is diagnosed with autism. Now I’m not saying I’ve cured it…

    Our life is full of joy. When I think of all the drugs I’ve been prescribed that did nothing… Not for my kids, thanks.

    Oh, and I unplugged the television too. I discovered that I was living with people I really get on with.

  23. It’s funny how so many people who believe this article claim others to be ignorant . You are the people who are bring ignorant for accepting (somewhat) unsubstantiated claims. Can’t you see whether it’s fox news or this website, believing blindly is ignorance. Critical thinking, the use of facts, and the scientific method will allow you to sort through the nonsense you are being fed. I do not disagree (or agree ) 100 percent with this article. But people who take this, or any other media at face value with out questioning are the ones creating our problems.

  24. Our world isn’t collapsing. Our world is an evolving Pluri-organism that can grow back after an impact event (KT event, more than 95% life on earth disappear).

    Our society on the other hand is at a shift. A momentum where many outcomes are possibles.

    Either it collapse or not depend to us. nothings written yet.
