Now that is reaching.
Did I imply that cannibalism never happened? No! What I am saying is it was an isolated occurrence that didn’t affect a sizable portion of the
population. Just like people have delved into cannibalism in the late 20th century. Everyone knows the cases that have happened around the US. But was
it a regular occurrence? NO!
You are trying to imply that just because there was “reports of something happening”, and that it was “probable”…… That it was a regular
occurrence that everyone had to deal with.
It is possible that a group of homosexual midgets in tights will go running down main street shooting up the town with black powder muzzle loaders.
There may even be an isolated report of something like that happening somewhere. But will it be a regular occurrence? NO! Will everyone in the
population have to deal with such stuff? NO!
In modern society, there has been reports of people eating other people. In the history books, it may say “There was even reports of cannibalism by
certain individuals during the late 20th century.” Was it a daily occurrence? No. Did the majority of the population have to directly deal with a
cannibalism incident? No. Did even an appreciable fraction of the population have to deal with one? NO.
Worrying about cannibalism during a SHTF event is like prepping for getting hit by lightning during a hurricane. Is there a possibility that you can
get hit by lightning? Yes. But it is likely to happen to you directly? No, not really. Your preparations would be better applied to prepping for the
wind that will blow you, and everyone else away. You know you are going to be affected by that. Diverting your attention to the lightning and becoming
obsessed about it to the exclusion of everything else, is just leaving you open to the real threats of the storm.
The amount of time people put into worrying about cannibals and looters ransacking a city is just a waste of time. In a real SHTF event, if the
population ever encounters such a situation, it can easily be rectified.
Just shoot the offending M’F’ers then throw them into a shallow ditch and be done with it. Get back the more pressing problems of the day.
There may be a couple incidents along those lines that will occur in a population during a SHTF event, but they will be isolated and will only affect
a handful of people directly. Using such reports to imply that it was a daily occurrence all across the country, is taking the reports out of
context, and blowing things way out of proportion.
Yes, such stuff may occur, can occur, and probably will occur. That is why people have guns, knives, axes, and blunt instruments. To shoot them, stab
them, chop them, and beat them to death, and get on with life.
