One of the Main Reasons the World’s Elite Are Buying Up Elaborate Underground Survival Bunkers

Where will they get food and clean water after they use up what is stocked? Who will repair the machinery needed to maintain these places? Who will cook, wash dishes, do plumbing repairs, etc? Do these places have accommodations for those who will do the needed work?

Some of the richest people in the world reportedly are buying up spots in luxurious bomb-proof shelters across the globe due to fears of civil unrest and other possible apocalyptic scenarios.

Vivos, the main construction company behind the survival shelter complexes, states that the facilities were created for the “protection of high net worth individuals” if an apocalyptic-style catastrophe occurred. One of the company’s biggest shelters, Europa One, is located in Germany and seeks to offer buyers “one of the most fortified and massive underground survival shelters on Earth, deep below a limestone mountain” that is “safely secured from the general public, behind sealed and secured walls, gates and blast doors.”

Vivos also turned a Cold War era underground bomb shelter in Indiana into a luxurious facility geared toward meeting the needs of up to 80 of the world’s wealthiest patrons for a minimum of one year. Journalist Lynn Parramore told that she visited this site while researching the bomb-proof shelters and the appeal that draws the elite to them.

“You go underground and it feels like you’re in a very nice hotel,” Parramore said. “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.”

Parramore also added, “It’s a strange thing to me, culturally, because inequality is obviously a problem, and this is part of a realization on the part of wealthy people that it’s a problem. But the idea that the solution to that is to hide away in a gold-plated bunker while everything else goes to hell — I don’t believe that people can survive that way.”


“I think we all need each other, and it’s a strain of libertarianism that puts emphasis on the individual and doesn’t trust the government to do anything right in the case of a disaster. So I think that’s feeding into this, and a little paranoia is feeding into it,” Parramore told “I would be much more happy if some of these wealthy people would say, ‘Hey, maybe I don’t need all of these tax breaks. Maybe I wanna do something to actually solve the problem of inequality, rather than hide away from it.'”
