    Ever heard of an NDA? The people able to afford access to this tier of society, also have access to legal teams, and hitmen, depending on the level of response necessary. Just because you're obliged to follow the law, doesn't mean everyone is...wake up and think bigger. Money can purchase anything.

    Something tells me if the guy can get citizenship in less than two weeks installing a bunker without the HOA's approval probably isn't an issue.

    truth is they are afraid because they helped to create this mess. So now they're preparing to run and hide.

    True. The gilded age robber barons at least employed Americans, being in their interest not to have angry mobs come for them. Now the oligarchy can offshore jobs, and their doomsday bunkers too
