I've been through a fair share of long-term (three plus days) power outages. There was never an immediate breakdown of society. But, as I said, we have support systems in place to handle these things. However, they do only work on local and smaller regional levels. On a widespread, national level I'm sure they would be stretched to breaking and things would be different. I'd still give it a week or so, once people start running low on food, for things to start getting sketchy.

It’s all to say we just can’t handle a world without a world government as if we are all dumb they think we’re dumb but the truth is we’re so beat down we don’t have the resources to fight back we go right and our house and family go homeless this new system of slavery is the worse form yet because your slavers do it while virtue signaling about how great and woke they are

Modern hi-tech society is over when the electricity shuts down. It is sort of immediate. The supermarket freezers without power have about twenty hours. But food coming in from the countryside could keep it going. That's if you haven't sold all your donkeys for food to China as Nigeria did.
