For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
– King James Bible “Authorized Version”, Pure Cambridge Edition
.. “airpower holds out the hope to the nations that, in the future, air battles taking place miles away from the frontiers will be so decisive and of such far-reaching effect that the nation losing them will be willing to capitulate without resorting to a further contest on land or water on account of the degree of destruction which would be sustained by the country subjected to unrestricted air attack.”
-General Billy Mitchell, from his book, Winged Defense, 1925
“We will not have any more crashes in our time.”
– John Maynard Keynes in 1927…Whoops, not a watchman, but an anti-capitalist demon…..
On the other hand, Peter Schiff warned and was MOCKED on CNBC regularly in 2006 & 2007:
And of course, one of my favorite Watchmen and mentors has recently warned:
Warnings ignored, unheeded, nor planned for by many.
One day soon, the voices of hope, of freedom, of tracking and warning the disasters which came in various times throughout recent and ancient history shall go silent.
The prescience of so many of the “Watchmen” has been declared the rantings of madmen and hucksters yet upon review, the ones that always proclaimed peace in our time have been the ones proven wrong as they failed to recognize the inherent evil in the soul of men wishing to control and destroy the civilized world for their own control and profit.
Of course, one doesn’t need to go back to 1930’s Europe to find insanity and idiocy from national leaders. The United States has experienced the same moronic ideals in the recent era:
The Watchmen warned in both cases. They were ignored.
The United States is about to experience the arrogance turned back upon itself due to a corruption of ideals and faith unseen since the days of Rome. The warnings are clear. One day soon the Watchmen will go silent and the sheeple, the meek, the simpletons will declare, “why didn’t you warn us, why didn’t you tell us it would be so bad?”
The warnings have been issued for over a decade now. The plans of evil laid out as obvious yet so many think that the hope provided by the latter day profiteers that there is a plan to stop the forthcoming judgment and events will blunt their plans. This is the pleas of praying on individual’s hope and dreams that the “Red Dawn” answer to the upcoming societal shift will make a difference.
These souls will have about as much success as he did against a Hind attack helicopter. The Watchmen will soon go quiet. Their voices limited, terminated, or no longer heard for self-preservation purposes. The men and women who warned about the future will be scorned for not preparing the people of the present to deal with the crisis yet the lack of willingness to accept personal responsibility for preparing their families and/or networks for the events about to unwind is their own shall be forgotten as assigning blame is the simpleton solution.
When the Watchmen go silent there is no tomorrow, just darkness as in the post Roman period in Europe.
Civilization will pause.
Freedom will be vanquished.
Many will perish.
Yet in the end, those who heeded the word of the Watchmen will survive, will thrive, and will save our world to restart civilization anew. Until that time, the Watchmen will fade into history, blamed for the failures of others and thriving in the darkness which has fallen. I sincerely hope many have paid heed to these warnings as dusk envelops us all.
The voices of freedom are about to go silent and soon the screams of evil will dominate in the darkness.
