“[Kim Jong Un] has managed to spike our business unbelievably,” said Keith Hillen, owner of doomsday equipment store Prep and Save in California. “We’ve had the largest days we’ve ever had. Our business [has seen] between a 200% and 400% increase.”

Here’s exactly what’s in Costco’s new $6000 doomsday prep kit

Da fug?
I did some searches and couldn't find much if anything on doomsday prepping in our neck of the woods.
We might not realise the emminent danger over here?

>over here

Your esteemed gov social/welfare net might be contributing to your complacency.  Also, DK's relatively homogeneous population takes out some of the perceived survival risks should a societal collapse happen.

You need to start a panic about how we're overdue for another Carlisle Event and sell some crap.

Causes of collapse
>>> societal collapse

Common factors that may contribute to societal collapse are economical, environmental, social and cultural, and disruptions in one domain sometimes cascade into others. In some cases a natural disaster (e.g. tsunami, earthquake, massive fire or climate change) may precipitate a collapse. Other factors such as a Malthusian catastrophe, overpopulation or resource depletion might be the proximate cause of collapse. Significant inequity may combine with lack of loyalty to established political institutions and result in an oppressed lower class rising up and seizing power from a smaller wealthy elite in a revolution. The diversity of forms that societies evolve corresponds to diversity in their failures. Jared Diamond suggests that societies have also collapsed through deforestation, loss of soil fertility, restrictions of trade and/or rising endemic violence.
