5 Real Threats Most People Aren’t Ready For

When it comes to threats that affect our economy, lifestyles and very well-being, the list is endless. From natural disasters to man-made ones, to disease outbreaks and antibiotic-resistant superbugs (thanks factory farming!) there is a never ending amount of chaos that could be unleashed upon our civilization at any minute.

It’s important to assess your lifestyle and surroundings to account for any threats that could affect you and your family. What follows are five threats that could affect us all, threats that many of us simply fail to think about and certainly aren’t prepared for.
#1 – Cyber Warfare


One of the most prevalent threats to the state of our network-dependent society is cyber warfare. Many cyber security experts will already tell you that our systems are under constant attack 24/7. It’s only a matter of time before one such attack takes out a sizeable chunk of our infrastructure.
#2 – Large-Scale Disease Outbreak



The 2014 ebola crisis showed us just how ill-equipped we are to handle pandemic outbreaks as a collective society. Our lives are so interconnected globally, it’s no surprise that it’s incredibly easy for diseases to make their way around the globe faster than we can stop them.
#3 – Attacks On The Power Grid



There are three large power grids, each of which have very little means of helping out other regions during emergencies. This means that an attack on one region could be potentially crippling to that region, shutting down many parts of its infrastructure within minutes.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission reports that the entire U.S. power grid could be shut down through small scale attacks on simply nine transmission substations.
#4 – Militarization Of Police Services



From drones to armored vehicles, tanks and helicopters, our police forces are becoming increasingly powerful and strong, using many pieces of equipment that were once reserved for the military. This causes the line between military and local police forces to be increasingly blurred, which could lead to increasingly scary standoffs with civilians like we’ve seen in cases like Eric Garner.
#5 – Zombies



When I say zombies, I’m not referring to the sort of zombies you’d see on The Walking Dead. I’m talking about medicated zombies made stupid and forced into submission through things like vaccine and pharmaceutical drugs. What do you think would happen if people were disconnected from their medication supply?
