I will not be stocking up on rice, beans, etc.
I'm not doing it because of some deep seeded personal cynicism, but because its the circumspect thing to do; food shortages WILL Happen, that's what
goes along with internal conflicts the size of what were seeing; with the collapse of the global economy comes inflation i.e. the increase in food
prices; can you escape that event?
You don't seem to be grasping the full ramifications of what's on the horizon. Oil shortages - massive increase in gas prices; not that alone.
Gasoline fuels our consumerist societies. How will produce grown in California or Florida make its way to ontario? In the middle of winter?? Do you
understand. There's a string of drastic implications that forces upon the perspicacious onlooker the need to make provision.
No thanks, that's not the life I want to be diminished to, if we are talking a short struggle fine but anything long term that requires 1 to 2 yrs of
food supplies no thanks.
It's your choice how big you want to build your food supply. However, if you don't want to be standing in lines waiting for 'food rations' down the
road, I would highly recommend you separate yourself from the rabble by taking precautionary measures.
I agree, this picture is ugly to the extreme. The effects of an economic collapse are frightening, especially to our highly pampered western
civilization, particularly us here in Canada and the US. But, you must understand the interrelationship of things.
Oil is akin to the blood which runs through the body. Without blood - or having too little blood - the entire body shuts down.
In any case, at the very least, food prices will skyrocket. Why not by a few large bags of whole rice, Quinoa, lentils etc, and prepare yourself and
your family?? Wouldn't you like exempt yourself from the chaos that others will be forced to deal with??
So have fun with your lentils or seaweed or whatever it is that you have stored, and when that runs out let me know how the shoe leather and worms
Let me give you a simple time table: Israel's latest warnings indicate that they will attack Iran by the latest, sometime in early 2013; I imagine it
will happen in November or December of 2012.. Thus, the scenario I've outlined is extremely imminent in coming.
The situation you described is akin to saying "were going to die someday, so why should I eat healthy, not smoke cigarettes, not drink myself sick -
if it doesn't matter in the end?".
Why? Because It's stupidity. If you can protect yourself, even if for only 2 years, it will be 2 years of comfort and health more than you would
