After almost 2 weeks without much food, no FEMA government trucks have come in to rescue, a crowd of almost 100 people have gathered around the Smith house.
Similar size crowds have also collected around other people’s homes suspected of “hoarding” food.
A war that would rage on a half a world away would mean that supermarket shelves would be emptied.
This would ONLY be regarded as a moderate hit to civilization until a regional war like this actually went global.
One of the most critical threats to be faced will be from those in your immediate vicinity – and those who have prepared will likely be forced to draw a line in the sand.
Most of us live around neighbors and are not, for the most part, living an isolated lifestyle.
It is called the irrational conduct of a mob mentality.
An excellent example of this is how a person can be trampled to death by a herd of wild eyed shoppers desperate enough to get some electronic gadget at some super holiday sale.
Most people can only get by without a few days of food before “snap” reactions begin.
Remember ONLY 1 to perhaps 1 and 1/2% of the people have stocked up for just such an emergency.
The simple moral to this story is something most survival orientated people already know – that you must have self defense or you will lose what you have when someone decides to take it.
The fact that so few prepare means that food is going to be even more scarce and totally sought after.
Of course the dogs, the cat, and the bird are killed and cooked up for their meat.
