How the Super-Rich Will Ride Out the Apocalypse

Post by mnaz » October 12th, 2019, 1:53 am

I read something today, about
where the Super-Rich will ride out
the Apocalypse.

My eyelids flutter at the thought
of mounting modern complexity;
who can get it up, who maintains.

Everything is hitting all at once.
Old myths and the conquest of billions.
News Channels are melting down.

The Super-Rich will ride it out in bunkers.
When they emerge into the haze,
their markets will be extinct.

I also read something about the apocalypse
as I remember there was this hollowed-out mountain at a resort in West Virginia that was created after WW2

Not the first time I've come across this sorta article while surfing the "news" on my lunch break. Yeah, it's a "click bait" thing I guess, but also a bit of a reveal in a culture obsessed with material wealth. Maybe "the Apocalypse" is nuclear; maybe not (economics itself is weaponized). The rise of the 1 percent is truly stunning in recent years/decades. Of course, if it got too far out of balance in that direction we could always just vote them out, right? Oh wait, I forgot. Our "elections." Maybe not.
