Historically after a collapse, guess who are the first people that get put up against a wall or otherwise killed? By all sides?
If you guessed the cast of characters who have their hands out, you guessed correctly.
A real eye-opener for me personally .... the "we're gonna die" folks in the streets after Sandy, waiting for Obama/FEMA/The Gov't to save them. The eye-opener was not so much that they were doing this, although it clearly showed exactly what will happen with the majority of the masses who don't take responsiblity for their own lives. The eye-opener was that my heart was hardened to their pleas to an extent that surprised me because normally I care about people in distress. This time ... not so much. Very sorry for their misfortune, but the ones I saw on the TV .... go to Obama for what you need, don't cry to me. Of course, there is an article out about the lady who made a lovely picture op with Obama hugging her and telling her that she would get help "immediately" .... she's still waiting. When the collapse happens, it's going to be CWII - for food in particular ... and folks who haven't thought about surviving without electricity & thus heat/AC, working appliances (lights, can openers, fridge/freezer, etc.) are going to be mentally losing it as well.
