I was recently doing some research about the aftermath of some natural disasters that took place here in America. I was shocked to find that the articles I was looking for – ones that I had read in the past – were pretty hard to find, but articles refuting the sought-for pieces were rampant. Not just one event, but every single crisis aftermath that I looked up, had articles that were written after the fact stating in no uncertain terms that the hunger, chaos, and unrest never happened
Apparently studies prove that the fear of anarchy, lawlessness, and chaos is nothing but the “disaster myth”. Reams of examples exist of the goodness and warmth of society as a whole after disaster strikes. All the stories you read at the time were just that – stories, according to the mainstream media
The stories about Katrina were real. I don't know what kind of spin this is trying to provide, but it is a bad job. I've heard stories directly from people involved of the looting and fear following the aftermath of Katrina. I have heard of shootouts and the gun confiscation between people and the National Guard. I have watched videos of people forced into housing for "their safety" and not allowed to leave, all the while having barely enough food and healthcare to go around these facilities.
These post disaster events are very different to how the MSM portrays this. Makes you wonder if it is done on purpose so that we want to be governed..

So, I'm wondering - does the MSM put this crap out to hope for a "race war" or some kind of "shooting apocalypse" against "looters" ?
Maybe they want this so that people will happily go to FEMA camps in an emergency?
I live in the midwest - everyone will be well behaved -
See the Iowa floods last year - or last few years (time flies by) - complete destruction - yet, no gov't funded debit cards?
It will be those that have worked hard all of their lives, those that pay their taxes, and understand that the constitution is to be used for freedom, and that the country they live in is the best in the world. They will fear others that look different, those that take the MSM as gospel. Those that believe that inner cities, homelessness and poverty are a choice.
They will fear losing "their" way of life. Those in my opinion will be the first to shoot, and the last to realize that they are just like everyone else, and will have to live with these choices in the long run. Those will be the men and women that will turn other parents and children away when and if they need help. That will look people in the eye and think that its the right thing, that if that other person would have made the same decisions as them, well then they would be better off.
You know who are the first to know its BS? The poor, the homeless, the welfare recipients, the elderly that cannot afford medication, the kids that go home hungry at night, large corporations that pay wages that cannot feed a family or 3, but the employee has a family of 6. All of the answers are there and hopefully before its to late we can see it.
Those tied to the system will turn on each other, and the rest of us will say "good riddance" and go on about building our future unconstrained by the past.
