Skip to comments.10 Things That The Egypt Riots Can Teach Us About What Happens When Society Breaks Down

1 When society breaks down, people look for whatever weapons they can find. Over this past week, abandoned police stations throughout Egypt have been stripped of their arsenals by looters.
2 When society breaks down, nobody is safe. Average Egyptians armed with sticks and razors have formed vigilante groups to protect their homes from the crazed looters that have emerged during the rioting.
3 When society breaks down, you better protect your women and children. At least 60 rapes have been officially reported since the rioting began. The unofficial number is surely far higher than that.
4 When society breaks down, criminals do not fear the law. There are reports that at least 4 prisons have been attacked and that thousands of convicts have escaped into the streets.
5 When society breaks down, authoritarian governments begin hoarding food. The Telegraph is reporting that governments throughout the Middle East and North Africa have started stockpiling huge amounts of food in response to all the rioting that has been going on.
6 When society breaks down, food shortages can happen shockingly fast. As commerce has been brought to a standstill in Egypt, serious shortages of some of the most important basic food staples are starting to be reported. Many families in Egypt only have enough food to be able to survive for a couple more days.

Mark for tomorrow.
“But take away their creature comforts, deprive them of food, sleep, sonic showers, put their

"Food for thought" for sure. I've been wondering when they're going to get hungry. I suppose the idea was that after Mubarak was disposed of, there would be some kind of multi-billion dollar relief effort, just to make everyone feel good about it. We'll see.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
When this happens in America and the leftists, muslim sypathizers and welfare class take to the streets in armed insurrection, we will need a strong leader to do what’s necessary and crush the revolt.
In other words, complete anarchy.
What if the leftists, welfare class, and muslims are the ones in control and we are the ones in revolt?
When society breaks down, cities become very dangerous places. Get out as soon as the anarchy begins.
We may have to crush the revolt.
This is exactly why one should store firearms, ammo, food & water.
Is there any way that you can continue this list? This is the kind of thing I like to read to County and City leaders out here in California!

California is clearly going to become Egypt!

Not necessarily, the above groups will turn on each other 1st and loot and burn down their own neighborhoods. Conservatives will just watch them from the countryside. Any Conservative in an urban and even suburban setting better have an escape plan.
