Lot of people alive today never missed a meal. Unfortunately they can't shoot or catch dinner, clean and cook it, don't even consider growing food, or perhaps foraging. Plus they all addicted to antibiotics and preservatives in processed foods.

How many people make or fix stuff? - buy it, use it once and then throw it away is the norm.

The first winter after the collapse will thin the herd. Skills and knowledge are the lightest things to pack on your back
The estimate is that the herd will be trimmed by 90%

My understanding is that poor people reproduce like rats. Working in social services has jaded me. It won't be long before we are again overpopulated. as far as acquiring stuff, I suggest you visit your local swap meet. If society collapses, this is where you will be shopping.

This is what keep the average IQ of the planet so low. See the movie "Idiocracy" for a fun mind experiment.

50% of the people are above average, 50% are below. That's how it's supposed to be, but I swear every time I walk outside I run into 90% of the below average folks. They must all live in my neighborhood. And yes, they reproduce like rats.

I'm all for less government involvement in our lives, but a forced tube-tying of all women at birth sounds like a good idea. Then reverse the procedure if they choose to do so, have no felonies, and score above 110 on an IQ test.

Ok, maybe not, but I maybe free birth control should be added to the handouts in place of free drug needles since they're doing that anyway. Same cost, better result.

I would say that WWII revealed the Greatest Generation. It showed Americans loved their country and would stand up and defend it. The depression probably toughened a lot of people and that helped.

Today's education system specializes in turning out special snowflakes who hate America. They will/are helping destroy America.

Be Prepared !

Look at history. Times of great economic distress have led to social upheavals, revolutions, and even wars.

The Great Depression of the 30's was a major factor in the rise of Hitler and Nazi Germany. It lead to fascism in other European nations. It also was a cause of Japan's expansionist ambitions.

Conversely, it could also cause a lurch leftwards into various forms of socialism. Even communism.

Political extremism feeds on despair.

It may sound really crazy but regardless of whether it does or not, at the end of this decade several of the major global players eill be mutually involved in a global war togethor. Keep an eye on the asian press.....it would stop another great(er) depression likelast time or result in one at its conclusion. Our news entertainment is ignoring what the foriegn press is beginning to hyperventilate upon.
