This Is How Quickly Society Will Break Down [PHOTOS]: “If You Don’t Have Food Yet I Feel Sorry For You”
Record breaking winter snow storms… they might be extreme, but should they really be crippling cities across the country?
But should they be?
Here is a live exercise reminder that the system can and will break down in an instant. The population is simply not ready for a major emergency. Hopefully you are; but they just aren’t.
Nonetheless, if these pictures of store shelves are any evidence, society is not equipped for even the most basic crisis:
Right now, the worst panic shopping is sweeping the D.C. area, but it is evident that this could happen in any major city along the East Coast, or indeed, across the country in the right set of unfortunate circumstances. Adan Salazar of Infowars, who rounded up these photos from Twitter, reported:
Concerned shoppers worried about spending days snowed indoors have hit grocery stores hard leaving empty shelves in their wake, hours before a massive snowstorm is due for the northeastern United States. A few inches of snow have already piled up in places like Washington DC causing havoc, but forecasters predict Winter Storm Jonas could be a “historic storm” that will bring 50 to 60mph winds and more than two feet of snow.
The USDA has tips to keep your food at optimal temperatures in case your fridge breaks down:
As this Twitter use pointed out, we haven’t reached the point of the end of the world here, but some people are acting like it.
Of course, we’re not talking about preppers who have stocked up well in advance, and made plans for such disasters. We’re talking about the short sighted, panicky general public, whose madness threatens to unravel us all if things went much further than a snow storm.
How much worse would things get if a major weather event were coupled with political unrest, or riots?
