The world seems to be going down in a creeping apocalypse rather than a series of sudden bangs. The rich probably won’t get to their BO locations any faster than you or I. But if they want to use their money to build survival shelters for their full time employees and their families who maintain them then why not. Individuals survive while the subsidized scum perish. The money gets spent one way or another. In John Galt’s world the government rulers counted on the herd to stay in place while the implosion of the economy occurred. They demanded it. The little guy was supposed to feel guilty even when he was being ditched. LOL
The US is a society that takes retribution and vengeance seriously. What goes around comes around, as they say.
