USA - The Super-rich Are Getting Scared

Arno Froese

The super-rich and ultra-paranoid are preparing for the breakup of civilization by purchasing of apocalypse-safe bunkers worth millions of pounds.

The 15-story underground luxury compounds are said by the sellers to be able to withstand everything from extreme weather like tornadoes, to a full blown nuclear attack.

Located in the US state of Kansas, the hardened structures were originally missile silos, built by the US Army Corps of Engineers.

“What we’re looking at is there’s an increasing array of threats like tornadoes and hurricanes and solar flares and pandemics and terrorism and food shortages,” Larry Hall told ABC News’ 60 Minutes. “There are so many things that happen every day all around the world and people are just hoping it doesn’t happen to them. But what if it does?”

Not only are these compounds ready for any fathomable disaster, they are fully decked out in amenities designed to appeal to Survival Condo’s customer base. The compounds consist of a cinema, indoor pool and spa, medical first aid center, bar, rock climbing wall, gym, and library.

Additionally, an armory stocked with guns and ammo is in place in case of an attack by non-members, and is also available for owners to practice.

The bunker is able to sustain its owners for up to five years, by raising tilapia in fish tanks and growing hydroponic vegetables under lamps.

Survival Condo claims to have customers all over America, and because of this, each has in place a plan to reach their bunker in case of a major catastrophe.

Were something to happen, swat-like trucks would pick owners up from up to 400 miles away, place them in their bunkers, and lock the doors.

Arno's commentary

How much this bears out in actual fact we cannot be sure of, but doing a Google search for “apocalypse bunkers” reveals a slew of offers for such things, obtainable only for the super-rich. The sellers claim that these bunkers are “able to sustain its owners for up to five years.” So, the natural question is: what happens in the sixth year and thereafter?

These spiritually poor people desperately need the wonderful, liberating message of the Gospel. They don’t need apocalypse bunkers or anything of the sort, nor weapons for defense or emergency food storage. They simply need a living faith in Jesus Christ, which can be attained by submitting to the Holy Spirit and receiving recognition of one’s sin, which in turn leads to seeking forgiveness. The price is already paid in full. The future is guaranteed, but God’s law cannot be detoured; it is appointed for man to die once, but after this the judgment (Hebrews 9:27).
