Why Are The Super Rich Snatching Up Fortified Underground Bunkers Worldwide?

Super rich families around the world are snatching up secure bomb-proof underground bunkers as they prepare for a mass uprising from the 99 percent.

A company named Vivos is building five star fortified underground bunkers the super rich, one percent can use to hide from civil unrest and natural disasters while the world burns around them, reports the Daily Mail.

“People are sensing that a global life-changing event is just ahead… Millions of people believe that we are living in the “end times.”

The multi million dollar bunkers are nuclear blast proof and come complete with movie studios, fully stocked kitchens, swimming pools, and comfortably furnished rooms that will enable the super rich to survive independently for up to a year.

One of the largest fortified underground bunkers, named Europa One, is located in Germany and promises to keep residents safe from all disasters using secured walls and blast doors, according to The Blaze.

“One of the most fortified and massive underground survival shelters on Earth, deep below a limestone mountain.”

In the U.S., an old Cold War era communications facility in Indiana has been turned into a massive luxurious bomb proof shelter capable of hiding 80 of the world’s super rich underground for a year, reports The Blaze.

“This is for wealthy people who are concerned about various disaster scenarios, but a common theme among them is a fear of civil unrest, a fear of an uprising from the 99 percent.”

The bunker is far enough away from the New Madrid fault line to be a good escape for a tsunami-type event.

The fortified bunkers are designed to withstand an attack from the masses as well as any natural disaster, but also feature luxurious accommodations and Vivos encourages its customers to decorate their chambers like they would their yachts, reports the Daily Mail.

“We are clearly living in dangerous and changing times that the uninformed will never understand until the threats are evident. We cannot predict, but we can prepare.”

The bunkers run anywhere from $35,000 up to $3 million and come complete with armed guards, a hospital and by-laws designed to maintain law and order in the underground community, according to the Vivos website.

Meanwhile, other slightly less paranoid members of the super rich are skipping the underground bunker and investing in panic rooms where they can hide from the swarming unwashed masses in the event of civil unrest. New York is seeing an upswing in the construction of so called “safe rooms” in upscale condos and private residences.

Journalist Lynn Parramore investigated the super rich who were preparing to hide from the masses in their safe rooms and underground bunkers. She told The Blaze the one percent who are buying these hideouts are only making the problem worse; should civil unrest occur mankind should be pulling together not working against each other.

“Inequality is obviously a problem, and this is part of a realization on the part of wealthy people that it’s a problem.”

As they prepare for the end of time, the world’s super rich are fleeing major cities like never before. About 3,000 millionaires left Chicago last year among racial tensions and rising crime. Paris and Rome have both witnessed their own exodus of the super rich and New Zealand, rated the third safest country in the world, has seen an influx of wealthy renters.
