The Hyper- Rich have Already Bugged Out, and are not Eating Bugs! By John Steele
I have covered for some time the story that the hyper-rich have bought up bolt holes in places like New Zealand to go in a SHTF scenario. Well, that has happened now, regardless of how you view Covid-19. It is probably the economic fallout and ensuring social chaos that scares them most, and they are ready for it in style, the style that only big money can buy:
“The world's super rich are buying bunkers with shooting ranges amid fears coronavirus will spark a crime epidemic. Multi-millionaires and billionaires are going underground as the deadly outbreak spreads panic around the world. However, many are not hiding away from the killer virus they are running scared about what may happen in the wake of the pandemic. "People are buying not specifically for the coronavirus, people are buying the shelters for what the coronavirus can bring," said Gary Lynch of the Rising S Company, which manufactures luxury bunkers. "The United States is very vulnerable economically and if there were a collapse we would see civil and social unrest. "What you are going to have is people going door-to-door trying to do harm, trying to steal, trying to take food and trying to take possessions. "So what my clients want to do is go hide underground then they don't have to worry about what is going on outside as they are safe and secure inside their shelter." Many of the shelters are built from protective steel and have bullet-resistant doors, reports the BBC. They are fitted with state-of-the-art air filters which can even remove nuclear dust in the wake of a missile attack. They have huge food storage rooms which can hold up to six months supplies of tinned and freeze-dried goods. Many have huge underground greenhouse gardens so the occupants can grow their own food when their supplies run dry. Mr Lynch revealed some of his clients even have shooting ranges fitted. Texas-based Rising S Bunkers start at $50,000 but can run into millions. The largest they have built measured 13,000 square feet for a mystery client.”
The problem though, is at some point, supplies will run out, and the little rich mice will have to return to the surface, where they are likely to face the mutated lifeforms that were one human. Then what?
