2012 - Ask Yourself This

Take for a moment all the prophecy and predictions off the table. This is not a debate as to whether it
will happen or not. Instead, just consider this one question.

“If ONLY 10% of the world's population believe that 12/21/2012 spells
disaster, what would happen?"

There is approximately 6.7 billion people on this planet.  
That translates to 670 million people behaving badly.
What is even more disturbing is that 10% is most likely
an understatement.

Those are large numbers; think about 10%
of some more local populations:
US - 307,006,550
PA - 12,604,767
NY - 19,541,453
NJ - 8,707,739
Philly 1,447,395
NYC 8,300.000

It is completely logical assumption that there will be an emotional reaction to the predictions for 2012.
That can not be denied.

From what is written about 2012, the scenario is doomsday. There is no shortage of information, from
books to movies to websites on the Internet. If you Google 2012, you will find there are 13 million
websites. It is mainstream news and discussions have appeared in newspaper articles and magazines
and heard on television and radio. As 2012 approaches, there will likely be a frenzy of even more
information gathering in speed and intensity.

Add to that the uneasiness of current global problems (earthquakes, volcanoes, melting glaciers, oil
spills, financial meltdowns, disease) and you have potentially a cause for people, in general, to be more
willing to jump on the doomsday bandwagon.

Now back to 670 million people behaving badly.

Fear is an emotional response to a perceived threat and is the most basic human survival instinct.
People will be fearful. When people operate from fear, especially when they perceive their life is in
jeopardy, they will do whatever it takes to survive. In the scenario presented by the 2012 prophecies,
there is no escaping but rather enduring and hopefully surviving whatever the impending disaster
might be.

Think for a moment of the Titanic, a story we all know well. The difference is, in this scenario, we will not
be able to exit the planet in an orderly fashion.

If 2012 is a complete "no show", you are still going to have to deal with the fear. As the clock continues
to tick, time is bringing us closer to 12/21/12, and there will be chaos. There will be people who will
break the law. There will be violence. There will be hoarding. There will be uncivilized behavior.

The very fact that people believe the potential impending doom of 2012 will create difficult
circumstances for all of us to deal with no matter what we personally believe. Potentially, fear itself
could be the most destructive part of the 2012 equation.

Imagine 670 million people on this planet behaving badly and you get a sense of how destructive this
fear could be and how that fear might affect you and your family.

Regardless of what 2012 brings, this problem will need to be addressed. I wonder if our governments
have given thought to human nature and the implications of 2012 upon the psyche of humanity. Y2K in
the year 2000 never happened. Still it was a notable doomsday scenario in recent memory. I can recall
countless reassurances by our government and media that nothing was going to happen and the
problem had been addressed. The silence from our leaders is almost eerie.

The question really is, when it comes to 2012, is fear our greatest enemy? Can the very idea of the
possibility of prophecies being fulfilled be a catalyst for disaster?
