Germany has warned its citizens to stockpile food and prepare to survive for weeks without the system, in large part due to the internal chaos surrounding its refugee crisis; Russia has conducted massive drills with 40 million people to prepare for the possibility of nuclear war; its leaders have repeatedly warned that it is being pushed to the brink.
While U.S. foreign policymakers arrange new conflicts and brash clashes with global powers, its people know little to nothing about why they are fighting, or who its government plans to fight next.
A Kremlin insider has warned that war with the United States could break out “even before the November elections in the U.S.,” urging citizens to stockpile food.
Sergei Markov, a member of the Civic Chamber, a Moscow-based state institution, told the Daily Beast, “These are the most serious tensions between Moscow and Washington in decades….the war might begin even before the November elections in the U.S.”.
- Markov’s warning should probably be treated seriously given that he is known to have “close ties to the Kremlin”.
- Russian citizens have been stockpiling food and essential supplies for months as paranoia about a major conflict escalates.
- While Americans are kept distracted by the media’s obsession with Donald Trump’s alleged mistreatment of women, Russians have very different priorities.
As individuals, we can’t prepare for everything, but that which we can be ready for will catch us that much less off guard. Knowing what crises may come, and the limits to what one can do about it can be very empowering. The question is, what’s next? Are things really as late in the game as Putin and his associates have suggested?
