The “Greatest Depression” has begun. Unprecedented in world history, much of the world’s economy has been locked down to fight the COVID War. Hundreds of millions of lives and livelihoods have been destroyed, and tens of millions of businesses will be wiped off the face of the Earth.

Yes, there will be a bounce back, but it will be short lived. Unemployment numbers will decrease but not because new jobs are being created… a small percentage of workers will be returning to their old jobs.

And, yes, there will be short-term economic spikes as economies temporarily rebound from their COVID War lows, but the devastating lockdowns, which are again being imposed by governments, will sink both developed and undeveloped nations deeply into the “Greatest Depression.”

When the reality of the “Greatest Depression” sets in and government stimulus is no longer boosting it up, high-flying equity markets will crash around the world.


The war is on! The fight between governments which will demand mass vaccinations and those opposing them will rage across much of the world.

In many Asian countries, such as China, Singapore, South Korea, and Vietnam, the vast majorities of the population will accept government mandates for COVID vaccinations.

Among many Western nations, however, there will be strong political forces forming new political parties to counter ruling establishments which impose rules and regulations in violation of Constitutions and the Bill of Rights.

It should be noted that in Denmark earlier this month, the government proposed a new law that would force its citizens to get a COVID vaccination. After nine days of protests, the proposal was dropped.


Another platform of newly-forming political parties will anti-tax. For example, with schools closed and learning online, taxpayers will demand sharp decreases in school taxes. Far fewer teachers will be needed, and all costs related to brick-and-mortar school buildings will be substantially lower, thus, taxes should be sharply cut.

And, overall, with businesses going bust and tax revenues decreasing, governments will attempt to raise taxes to make up for the shortfall. With people earning less and economically distressed, they will rise up against governments raising taxes.


Not a second to lose.

A blink of an eye is too long to wait.

To survive, you have to attack the attacker.

Beyond the homeless on the street desperate for a warm place to sleep and something to eat.

Beyond the mentally ill, suffering deeply and lost in the meaning of life.

Beyond those in the depths of despair who have lost everything and have nothing left to lose.

Beyond the thief, murderer, robber, or rapist.

Beyond the gang members who will do anything to get anything…

Beyond knowing survival skills to attack the attacker to fight for your life or lose it… SURVIVALISM during the “Greatest Depression” is a 2021 megatrend.

Doubling up on mental health, physical fitness, and diet, when everything else is going down, will separate the Survivalists from the victims. The winners from losers.

Surviving by finding new job opportunities, learning new skills, and finding

OnTrendpreneur® opportunities are all part of the SURVIVALISM skills and passion needed in the fight for your life in 2021 and beyond.


Just as the Roaring ‘20s followed the Spanish Flu, we forecast a “Roaring 2021” will follow COVID as locked down youngsters hit the streets to let loose and party.

Tired of being masked up and locked in, with their libidos heavily beating, restrictions or not, from Gen Z to mid-Millennials, it’s Party Time. While this is the prime demographic that will be Roaring in 2021, from Gen Y to Baby Boomers who don’t buy into the lockdown measures, and who used to live lives of fun and entertainment, will be testament that this movement will span generations.


It’s already happening. Younger generations are sneaking out and going underground to clubs and venues to let loose and have a good time.

The “Speakeasy” trend has begun. As it accelerates dramatically this coming year, it will provide numerous opportunities for OnTrendpreneurs® to create new night club scenes, sounds, and styles in the upcoming “Roaring ‘21s.”


Can’t go to college, can’t get a job, can’t move out of your parent’s house, can’t pay off your debts, can’t buy a new car… can’t, can’t, can’t. The American Dream, or the dream of any youngster around the world, has become a COVID nightmare.

As we have forecast, there will be strong anti-lockdown, go-out-and-play, speakeasy, Roaring ’21 movements launched by 18-to 29-year-olds who view COVID as an “old person’s disease.”

Indeed, according to the scientific data, the recovery rate among 1- to-20-year-olds is 99.997 percent and, on average, the virus recovery rate is 99.7 percent. Those aged 65 and over suffering from pre-existing chronic health conditions are most vulnerable to die from the virus.

As we reported in the Trends Journal, a Financial Times study found a growing resentment among young workers toward older adults as the virus outbreak has led to various economic challenges that have hit younger generations the hardest.

For OnTrendpreneur® advertisers and fashion, entertainment, and product developers wishing to maximize sales to Gen Z and the younger millennial demographic, a new message, sound, and style to appeal to this target audience will reap generous rewards.


It’s “Boca Midnight” – the streets are empty long before the clock strikes midnight.

Back in the late 1960s, in an era of sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll, there were advertisements run on national television saying, “It’s 10 p.m., do you know where your children are?”

Now, over 50 years later, the political dictate promoted by the media and enforced by the police is,“It’s 10 PM. Close down your restaurant, get back in your house, don’t go out and party, don’t go out and play, no singing, no dancing.”

Now, the new midnight is what the old folks do in Boca Raton, Florida do: go out early and get to bed by 10 o’clock. No nightlife.

Welcome to “Boca Midnight”!


In 2021, a new religion will be in the making. Members of all congregations, regardless of the gods and creeds they believe in, will be uniting under a universal religion of Freedom, Peace, and Justice.
From Vancouver to Frankfurt-an-derOder, thousands are taking to the streets throughout the world, rallying in the name of Freedom to protest against government lockdowns that have destroyed the lives and livelihoods of tens of millions.

We forecast that rather than forming a political party, by masses uniting under a religious order, it will be difficult for governments to impose COVID restrictions that would be in violation of the Freedom to religiously assemble… as evidenced by the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling.

Moreover, at a time when many are disenchanted with the entire political process, a universal chorus to let “Freedom, Peace & Justice” ring will be heard around the world as people rise to a higher spiritual order in words, deeds, and actions.

The 20th century was the American century – the 21st century will be the Chinese century. The business of China is business; the business of America is war.

While America spent countless trillions waging and losing endless wars and enriching its military industrial complex, China has spent its trillions advancing the nation’s businesses and building its 21st-century infrastructure.

And while America and Europe have outsourced their manufacturing to China and developing nations to increase profit margins, China’s dual circulation/self-sustaining economic model is directed toward keeping jobs and trade and profits within the nation, thus relying less on global trade.

It should be noted that U.S presidents, especially Barack Obama, used to brag about “American exceptionalism.” As the nation declines financially, socially, physically, and mentally, that phrase is no longer repeated by its top politicians.

While the rest of the Western world is relocking down its economies, China, were the virus first broke out, is completely reopened.

Of all the world’s major nations whose gross domestic products will be in decline, China stands alone in having its GDP rising into positive territory. Their economy is fully opened up, with its manufacturing rebounding, and the nation continues to expand its market share in products and presence in regions around the world… making it difficult for the U.S. and other western countries to catch up.


Back in 2019, protests raged from South America to Africa, from the Middle East to Asia to Europe, with millions taking to the streets in numbers never seen before fighting against government control, corruption, income inequality, poverty, violence, and crime.

And politicians across the globe were fighting against angry mobs who wanted to overthrow them. Then, suddenly, when the COVID War broke out on the Chinese Lunar New Year 2020, governments locked down their nations and locked down the protests.

In 2021, the uprisings and revolutions that were sweeping the world before the COVID War will accelerate dramatically, as billions of people sink deeper into economic despair.

In response, governments will again attempt to use the COVID War as a “legal” justification to prohibit protests. But, as Gerald Celente says, “When people lose everything and have nothing left to lose, they lose it.” And lose it, they will.

We forecast the protests will escalate into civil wars and civil wars will spread to regional wars, as citizens by the millions flee their nations for neighboring safe havens.
