If 2016 Wasn't the Epocalypse, What the Heck Was it?

Epocalypse

So, 2016 wasn't the predicted Epocalypse, but it sure was weird! Globally, it was a year of continued economic malaise and increasing financial risks. Most notably, though, it was a year of political upheaval that pitted voters in the UK, Italy and the US in civil wars at the ballot box. Here are a few of the otherworldly highlights that typified the troubles of 2016:


You may have thought it was your nation's worst year or maybe even the world's worst if you ...

Yes, it was annus horribilis for many, as Queen Elizabeth II said of the year when her palace burned and her princess daughter-in-law died and scandal plagued the family. 2016 wasn't just a year of bad things; it was a year of freaky bad things; but it wasn't the end of the world ... so far.

If it wasn't the actual Epocalypse, it must have been its antechamber. If it wasn't the queen of all bad years, it was her joker. And its whirling dervish of abnormalities came foremost because it was the first year in the history of the world where globalists everywhere saw sweeping peasant revolts turn against seventy years of expanding unification under centralized control.


With that as backdrop, here is my second prediction for 2017:

This is the year the globalists dig in and fight back. They will fight to the death of any and all opponents before they will see seventy-plus years of globalizing work plowed under. That means conflict and economic turmoil will escalate all over the world in 2017. The fight is on.

Maybe the Epocalypse comes as an exponentially faster acceleration into global hellishness and not a sudden plunge over the abyss. Maybe its not Epocalypse Now, as I announced last year but Epocalypse Dawning in years of ever increasing aberration that are now the new norm.

My path to writing this blog began as a personal journey. Prior to the start of this so-called "Great Recession," my ex-wife had a family home that was an inheritance from her mother. I worked as a property manger at the time, and near the end of 2007, I could tell from rumblings in the industry that the U.S. housing market was on the verge of catastrophic collapse. I urged her to press her brothers to sell the family home before prices dropped. The house went on the market and sold right away -- and just three months before Bear-Stearns and others crashed, taking the U.S. housing market down for the tumble. Her family sold at the peak of the market.
