    that was such a sad movie!

    I don't worry too much about the end...my nephews got me covered...

    Their intended rallying cry in case of serious social breakdown?

    "We're coming in hot!" they be crazy, for sure....

    I forgot to mention my older brother who has owned machine guns for 40 years, has military and law-enforcement training. He scares the hell out of me...always has.

    Jokes aside, I truly hope that it would never come to the point where we will have to see how people will treat each others when society around them falls apart. It might be one potential future though. I'm not always so sure how to express my thoughts about this subject, but as a strong advocate of pacifism I definitely feel conflicted about the use of violence. I think violence is only justified in situations regarding self-defence and those situations only could potentially be without any karmic repercussions. Depending on the circumstances of course.

    If my family were to be threatened then yes I do think I would take down the persons who would try to harm them, but on the other hand that's not the part of myself I would ever want to express in any situation. I'd rather would happily die peacefully than to live in a world of chaos where the "strong" or should I say vicious and brutal will survive. That's when you compromise the integrity of your soul, I believe and I think it's too high of a price to be paid. This life is important, but it's not that important in the grander scheme of things. It's just one of many countless ones. Death is easy, living with the consequences of your actions might not be. Of course if you're a psychopath you won't be bothered by any of your actions because you basically don't even have a conscience, but I'm willing to bet that any of us empaths couldn't live with ourselves if we did something which would break our inner moral compass. In the ideal situation I would be able to assist those in need and do what I can. I'm not here to live for myself anyways.

    That's a great post, Maggie. Blood law. That is a very smart system.

    Returning to the original topic of this thread, I've just found this very informative article below.

    No, a Massive Geomagnetic Storm Will Not Hit Earth on March 18


    Some media outlets have reported that Earth is expecting a “massive magnetic storm” on March 18. That’s wrong, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). And they would know: Not only does NOAA help people build forecasts for weather here on Earth, they also predict space weather events like geomagnetic storms.

    "This story is not plausible in any way, shape or form," Bob Rutledge, who leads NOAA's Space Weather Forecast Center, told Newsweek via e-mail. "Things are all quiet for space weather, and the sun is essentially spotless."

    The magnetic storm’s “imminent” arrival was one of Monday morning’s top science news stories, according to Google News. But most coverage appeared to be based on a misinterpretation of a chart posted on Russia’s Lebedev Institute’s website showing a minor uptick in geomagnetic activity on the 18th. That elevated activity is expected to be a minor storm at most. (NOAA’s forecast shows similar readings.)

    Geomagnetic storms are rated on a scale of G1 to G5, with G5 being the most extreme. On the 18th, readings will likely just reach the threshold for a G1—a minor—geomagnetic storm. G1 storms happen frequently, about 2,000 times every 11 years, or once every two days.

    This scale is based in part on an index created from the amount of magnetic deviation a storm might produce on the ground combined with measurements of a variety of currents with fabulous names, including the "auroral electrojets" and the "field-aligned current." The measurement of another type of current is called the "disturbance storm time index," according to NOAA's website.



    In this handout photo provided by NASA, a Solar and Heliospheric Observatory image shows Region 486 that unleashed a record flare on November 18, 2003. Solar flares can cause space weather, which can disrupt telecommunications and power grids on Earth.

    A massive geomagnetic storm would be a really big deal. A powerful magnetic storm could cause blackouts and damage communications satellites. According to the federal government’s Ready.gov website, one geomagnetic storm in 1859 shocked telegraph operators and set the paper they were working with on fire, while another in 1989 caused a nine-hour blackout in Canada.

    If you’re unconvinced that everything is going to be fine on March 18, the Ready.gov website has some tips. Preparing for a major space weather event is a lot like preparing for other kinds of natural disasters. Be sure to have fresh water on hand, gas in your car’s tank and copies of any important documents or information you might need.

    And if you’re going to get space weather predictions from somewhere, get them from a scientific authority—not someone on YouTube—and double-check the legends. Just a suggestion.

    There is a coronal hole facing us now which sends energy our way but not a storm on that date. This hole looks a little like a vector to me.

    Every single one of us on this earth has been programmed since birth by mainstream education and media.

    I presume that the motto "Together we make a difference" means we all have a part to play in overcoming that programming, but the task is colossal.

    That is very sweeping. There are around 7 billion people on the earth. We have about 350 million here in my country. I can't accept this statement as a fact or piece of truth. There are plenty of people who haven't been programmed. All around the earth.

    The most important programming that starts from birth is parenting. Nature and Nurture. We have souls and characters and are not blank slates when we're born.

    There are plenty of people who rage against the machine.

    lol, that's an excellent point...sometimes it feels that way...but then I have my message to convey as tiresome as it becomes to those on the receiving end..

    They're not on TOT posting about what's going on and together trying to make a difference, which was the point of my post.

    This thread is about the possibility of pending disaster, and what, if anything we the people should do about it, in view of the fact that generally speaking, the mainstream media and the government cannot be trusted.
