It's not "People", it's just Americans.
People here in the U.S. are so OCD about little things such as the way their food is shaped.
"People are people so why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully
So we're different colours
And we're different creeds
And different people have different needs
It's obvious you hate me
Though I've done nothing wrong
I never even met you
So what could I have done
I can't understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand
Now you're punching and you're kicking
And you're shouting at me
I'm relying on your common decency
So far it hasn't surfaced
But I'm sure it exists
It just takes a while to travel
From your head to your fist"

When I look at any male American under 35, I ask myself, how many simulated murders has this guy committed?

It basically boils down to many that are unhappy and as we move along in this timeline people will become even more unhappier. Even the super charismatic, optimistic, positive fols will begin showing unhappiness. Mark my words... I predict in the next 3-4 years very little or next to none will be saying "Its all good" anymore. It's because we are all beginning to wake up.
This is truly a good thing.

I work in grocery retail, and have been for about 2 years now. We usually have a couple items out of stock everyday, no big deal.
Well when a customer comes up to me and asks for a certain product, and I say it's out of stock they, well I don't really know how to put it. You could say that they throw a fit.
Grown adults curse and yell in the store when we don't have an item their looking for. I know it's a minor inconvenience, but seriously? It happens to me nearly everyday. I get yelled at by average people, just for not having any more pepperoni pizza pockets. Of course not everyone does this. The majority do though.
It got me to thinking though. All these things in the world are going down, the future of the US of A is not looking that bright. We are most likely going to see some very hard times up ahead.
I realized that if there is another depression, things are not going to be like they were back in the 30s. This time around people will be not so nice about it. People are going to be killing each other if they can't get what they want.
They freak out about some hot pockets, imagine when they can't afford to buy bread? To me the outlook for humanity, atleast here in the US is very dire. I highly doubt that we will bond together and make it through these hard times. This time around we will act like savages. Most allready do when their inconvenienced at the grocery store.
I have lost hope for humanity. I am truly scared to see what people will do when the times get really rough.
What do you guys think? Will we help each other out? Or will we act like we do at the grocery store?
Of course there are still lots of good people out there, but i'm talking about the majority.
