The Health Ranger warns: If you find yourself going along with the crowd, something’s wrong!
Podcast Transcript: “Just a quick podcast here to help you get things right in your mind about understanding the context of society and what the crowd is doing, versus what you’re doing. A lot of people gauge the correctness of their actions by whether or not the crowd is doing something. People think they have to go with the crowd and fit in with the crowd. My advice to you, when it comes to prepping especially, you got to realize the crowd is eventually going to be wrong, catastrophically wrong, because think about it… The crowd, whether you’re talking about financial prepping, disaster prepping or any of these other preparedness activities, the crowd is invested for example in the stock market bubble that exists today. It is a bubble, a massive bubble. There will be a massive correction at some point. We don’t know when, but we know mathematically it’s going to happen. There is a massive real estate bubble. There is a massive Bitcoin bubble. Crypto currencies have a bright future, but bitcoin is still in a bubble right now. We don’t know how high it’s going to go or when it’s going to end, but we know mathematically it’s going to end. If you go with the crowd you’re eventually going to get burned and hurt badly in the same way that the crowd is going to be hurt. Do you know why bubbles pop? Because the crowd realizes at some point that they were all wrong and they all panic at the same time. They all head for the exits at the same time and this causes a dramatic catastrophic drop in markets. When it comes to natural disasters, why are the highways jammed up when people are told to evacuate? The answer is because they all waited to the last minute to evacuate. Why are all the store shelves stripped bare of water and food as a hurricane is arriving for example? Well, because again people were not prepared. They waited till the last minute to take action and as a result some people end up having to pay $200 for a case of water for example or other sky-high black market prices for things that were dirt cheap 5 days earlier. If you go with the crowd in your life you’re gonna get burned…” Listen to the full podcast below:
