Tis’ the Season for Fear Porn. Will We Fall for It Again?

Once again, the collapse is near. But, have we heard it all before?

Ed note: This article is a re-print of an article I published Here.  I re-publish it now because the principles of the article are still timely

Fear

Before I get to the reason that I decided to write this article, let me be clear on one thing. This article is not meant to embarrass any of my colleagues in Alternative Media, and it is for that reason that I will only reference headlines and not names; unless the headline contains a named individual and needs to be included for clarity. I assure you that I am not shaming anyone, for I am in the mix every day and know just how hard it is to wade through mountains of data and make sense of it all. So I have nothing but love for my fellow freedom fighters, I just wish that they would do more web searches like the ones I did.
As we come to the end of last year, just as we have at the end of the three previous years, doomsday predictions about the following year’s unavoidable collapse are beginning to surface. As I begin to read about all of the calamity that we are about to suffer in the next 370 days, or so, a familiar voice rings in my head telling me that I have heard all of this before. So, I decided to start doing some web searches. What I found was that yes, indeed, I have heard all of this before.

Are we going to suffer a life-changing economic collapse in 2015? I do not know, for I have no gift of prophecy. Perhaps we will suffer a collapse, and perhaps the masters of this earth can keep things going for another decade, or two. Again, I have no crystal ball. What I do know is that a certain group of people come out with articles, books and television appearances (sometimes all three) during this time of year, each and every year, like a timer went off somewhere. Not all of my examples are of articles published this time of year, but there are enough of them. My question to those reading this is how many times do these people need to be wrong before they are written off as bad researchers, and why do the masses keep believing the “fear-porn” year after year?
As I stated previously, I decided to do some web searches about economic collapse predictions. I searched the years from 2012 to next year, 2015. What I found didn’t really surprise me because, as I stated, that little voice in my head was telling me that something was amiss. Anyways, here are some of the headlines that I dug up. I will begin in 2012 and move to present times.

Well, that covers the last 3 years pretty thoroughly, and I only linked from the first couple pages of my search. I am certain that one could find many, many more given sufficient time. Now, let’s move on to a time-frame for what is potentially coming, and not what has already been proven false. All of the following articles have been published within the last week

2015 Predictive Headlines:
– Why the Next Stock Market Crash Will Happen Any Day Now – Wednesday, 24 Dec 2014

Again, I’m not trying to zing anyone in particular with this article. I just wish all of these pundits would admit that, like myself, you DO NOT KNOW when the financial collapse will occur. That is evident by all of the inaccurate headlines that I have just posted. So, what’s the solution? It’s simple, really. Do your own research, stop buying the fear porn and prepare for anything.
