Some people you can fool all of the time. Not everybody, though.
Some of the sheeple are spooked. They know something is wrong. They're not sure what. They tend to ramble vaguely when asked. A lot of them have lost the ability to focus much on any topic. Still, they know something is wrong.
I see a lot of this as being sort of panicky and ill-conceived, driven as always by predators who rush in to promise their victims they have all the right answers. Most of 'em don't. They're just profiting.
I think the worst clowns are these flim-flam men over at "Vivos" hawking their crappy apocalypse Hiltons. If you have ever read Robert McCammon's SWAN SONG, I think "Vivos" is a lot like the privately organized mass shelter in the beginning of that book. Even as people are entering they have noticed it is leaking and in dubious shape, not quite what the brochures indicated.
A lot of wealthy people figured they would wait to see what happened, then pay for somebody else to see to it they will be okay. That's not the way it works in real life.
Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
- James 5:3
