Mormonism and Survival of the Richest

It's no secret that the Mormon corporation is hoarding enormous amounts of money. What are they planning to do with it? It's probably the exact same thing that these billionaires are planning:
They started out innocuously and predictably enough. Bitcoin or ethereum? Virtual reality or augmented reality? Who will get quantum computing first, China or Google? Eventually, they edged into their real topic of concern: New Zealand or Alaska? Which region would be less affected by the coming climate crisis? It only got worse from there. Which was the greater threat: global warming or biological warfare? How long should one plan to be able to survive with no outside help? Should a shelter have its own air supply? What was the likelihood of groundwater contamination? Finally, the CEO of a brokerage house explained that he had nearly completed building his own underground bunker system, and asked: “How do I maintain authority over my security force after the event?” The event. That was their euphemism for the environmental collapse, social unrest, nuclear explosion, solar storm, unstoppable virus, or malicious computer hack that takes everything down.

This single question occupied us for the rest of the hour. They knew armed guards would be required to protect their compounds from raiders as well as angry mobs. One had already secured a dozen Navy Seals to make their way to his compound if he gave them the right cue. But how would he pay the guards once even his crypto was worthless? What would stop the guards from eventually choosing their own leader?

The billionaires considered using special combination locks on the food supply that only they knew. Or making guards wear disciplinary collars of some kind in return for their survival. Or maybe building robots to serve as guards and workers – if that technology could be developed “in time”.
I highly recommend reading the entire article to get a sense of what the global elite are currently ruminating on.

And these are irreligious tech/finance billionares who don't even believe in some sort of cataclysmic Second Coming. You can only imagine what Mormons, who know it is right around the corner, are building in preparation with their trillion dollar nest egg.

This is why the Mormon leadership didn't spend a dime opening up their coffers during the worst global pandemic in a century. They're planning to save themselves and their families, and that is going to take all the resources they have once the world really breaks down from financial collapse, ecological disaster, or nuclear war.
