VICE recently visited the Rocky Mountains to spend some time with Michael C. Ruppert, best known for his 2009 documentary, Collapse, in which he focuses on the fragile state of our planet. In this video series, entitled “Apocalypse, Man,” the magazine gives an intimate look into Ruppert and his belief of the imminent collapse of the world, but also his answers of how the human spirit can survive the impending apocalypse.
For those not familiar with Ruppert or his documentary. He was forced out of the LAPD in the late 1970’s after claiming he caught CIA shipping and selling drugs across America. After, he became one of the biggest voices on the topic of climate change, government corruption, and peak oil through his website, FromTheWilderness.com.
Following the release of Collapse, Michael’s personal life collapsed himself. He paid off all his debts, left behind all his friends, and moved with his dog Rags to Colorado, planning to commit suicide. But, he’s still there… and VICE catches up with him.
