If the world were to perish in a nuclear war, a global epidemic or a zombie attack, these bunkers would ensure the safety of a select few
“You can never be too prepared”, or can you? A group of people known as the “Preppers” go by the premise that an impending apocalypse means you can be. With the glaciers liquifying, global warming and countries stocking up nuclear missiles, a doomsday scenario isn’t completely impossible. The idea of having an underground bunker or a safe house has been stealthily gaining momentum for some time now. Abandoned underground nuclear missile silos are emerging as unrivalled winners, in locations as diverse as the US, Czech Republic, Norway, and Germany.
Underground Bunkers for Doomsday
These underground ‘fortified’ homes, built to withstand anything from viral epidemics to nuclear disasters, are utilitarian. With everything from spas, gyms, entertainment arcades, a pet garden, to wine cellars and lounges, these post-apocalyptic ‘homes’ can easily set you back by a few million dollars. Celebrities and billionaires have also taken to the movement, what with Tom Cruise allegedly constructing a private bunker. One of the biggest names to invest in an agricultural seed bunker is billionaire Bill Gates, who has shelled out $30 million—along with a bunch of other big organisations—for the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, a secure seed bank on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen near Longyearbyen in the remote Arctic Svalbard archipelago. And presidents and world leaders aren’t far behind in securing an underground bunker.
Fortified Bunkers for World Leaders
US President Donald Trump has access to a bunker under the White House, built in the 1950s. Another is tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. ‘He also has a rudimentary bunker at his Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago, and one originally used to store bombs at his golf course in West Palm Beach,’ as per an Esquire report. While the exact locations of most underground home bunkers are not known, ‘advertisements’ featuring the most plush interiors are quite popular online, urging people to invest in one, before the end of the world.
Let’s take a peek inside some of these swanky underground bunkers
Billionaires like Bill Gates understand more than most people that a food crisis is coming to the United States – and they are prepared to weather it out in their luxury survival bunkers.
Watch this episode of “Liberty and Finance” as host Dunagun Kaiser speaks with Joel Salatin regarding how the billionaires know very well the world is at risk of experiencing a great food crisis.
“There’s an old saying that, if you want to know where to put your money, look at where the rich people are investing,” noted farmer, lecturer and author Joel Salatin during an appearance on “Liberty and Finance.”
“And so, you know, the fact that Bill Gates is now the largest farmland owner in the U.S., the fact that I’ve had several billionaires call me in the last year asking ‘How do I set up an agrarian bunker [for] when things collapse so I’ll be protected with my family?’ Those are what I call little flags that go off in your head … [telling you] ‘Oh, that’s happening, this is happening.’”
Gates is currently the largest landowner in the United States. In an online interview on the social media website Reddit, Gates claimed that his ownership of about 270,000 acres of farmland spread across 18 states only represents one-four thousandths of all farmland in the country.
While it is true that Gates is nowhere near owning even a majority of farmland in the country, the total number of acres of farmland that he owns does represent more than one-third of the land area of Rhode Island, which is a surprising amount of land for just one person to own.
Gates isn’t alone in seizing up farmland. Billionaires and corporations alike are grabbing up as much farmland as they can, pricing out young farmers looking to start their own operations.
More and more Americans are becoming food insecure
In his latest State of the Union address, President Joe Biden claimed that the inflation crisis and its effects on the food supply are starting to ease.
But both the facts and the spending habits of America’s billionaire class are clearly proving Biden wrong.
Advocates for food equity in the U.S. have pointed out that food is still far too expensive for millions of Americans and food insecurity is on the rise.
More Americans who rely on food stamps have reported skipping meals, eating less and turning to charities like food banks to manage food costs in January.
According to a survey by Provider, a smartphone app that has partnered with the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program to help people with their finances, 29.2 percent of survey respondents in January, all of whom were on food stamps, skipped meals. This is up by three percentage points from December.
Around 20 percent of respondents said they had to rely on aid from family and friends to help sustain themselves. This is up nine percentage points from last month. Nearly a third said they ate less food to manage rising food costs, up two percentage points from December. Nearly a quarter said they visited a food bank in the past month, up nearly three percentage points from last month.
All of this data proves that America is still experiencing a food crisis, and the nation’s billionaires like Gates are preparing by hoarding all of the farmland and preparing to retreat to their luxury bunkers.
