In earthquake country you make sure you have food, but mostly plenty of water in case the Big One hits. We grew up like that, and we can’t stop now.

Re: Prepping is a prime example of *GREED+FEAR*
Unfortunately, in this past century, people have gravitated towards cities, and have lost contact with the idea, as our ancestors did, of growing food and raising animals for their families survival. Instead we have become accustomed to just going to the many supermarkets and superstores to obtain our food, and have become complacent thinking that it will always be there. Even throughout the lockdowns/Plannedemic, truckers worked tirelessly to ensure that food was delivered to supermarkets, where we, masked up, would buy food to take home to our families, with no thought about the truckers who tirelessly delivered this food, or the farmers who grew/ and raised it for us to consume.

But what if, these supermarkets no longer had food on their shelves? Mayor Pete, seems unconcerned about the current crisis looming, whilst he and his husband, are still trying to figure out how to breastfeed his bought children :-)

But I digress:-). Have you ever given a thought to what if the food chain was interrupted irrevocably? O.K, I admit that although I am not a prepper, I am a good enough cook, and have enough food to tide my family over for a couple of weeks in the case of an emergency, but what then, if there is still no food delivered to the shops??

There is the theory of 9 missed meals before chaos and anarchy ensues. One only has to watch when the SNAP EBT cards go down for a few hours, and the reaction of these recipients…and suppose this was combined with perhaps the whole internet shutting down, and on top of this a major power outage worldwide, this would cause people to really lose their sh*t in major cities throughout the world… looting, rapes and murders in all the big cities…. Nothing would surprise me now regarding the World Economic Forum pulling such a stunt, as to how far they would take this for their idea of the Great Reset (look it up, as we are almost there now, with their mantra, You will own nothing and be happy… ). The only people who would survive this calamity, would be the people still in contact with the land, and relatively unplugged into modern society, like the Amish in the USA or preppers, who have already bought swaths of land with game on, tribes in Africa or South America, whilst the rest of us would be losing our sh@t trying to exist in cities and the suburbs, where things would get really ugly real quick.

I remember once having a conversation with a Police Detective here in Germany, and his recollections after going in after the break-up of Yugoslavia. He had been shocked at what he saw there, which is only about a two hour plane flight from Germany. Whole communities had turned on each other, and he still suffered from PTSD at what he had seen in the aftermath of this war… when people have no food, they commit atrocities that they would never ever thought that they would have been capable of in a civilized society….

So the original poster, is living in cloud cuckoo land, talking about greed and fear, and only living for the moment…

If the SHTF, reality will will come at him pretty quickly :-):

Greed is wanting more than one needs or may use in the moment (the only moment there is). The future doesn’t exist, get over your fear and stop being greedy and fking your world up.

greed is benign unless accompanied by force or fraud. Your criticism of "greed" of which you don't approve is itself greed. You covet. They have, you want, or at least, they have, and you won 't allow it. Do you believe in private property or not?
The fear part is none of your business, and neither is what someone has a room full of or worries about.
So shut up.

This century alone the grocery store has become people’s personal pantry.
Up until that time, all people had no choice but to keep a pantry for harvests to see them through non growing seasons.

So who has convince you that a pantry is “greed”?

Their fear is my fear. To fail to examine it, is too live in fear.

We all are greed. Therefore no one need be greedy.

i muse because I like them should be able to just make my own money because God is imagination, I would call them scooby bucks and anyone could order them and I would send them one scooby buck for 6 pennies, and on top of that I would make my scooby bucks legal tender and people would have to receive scooby bucks for goods and services.....I can print all the scooby bucks you can handle, just keep sending those 6 pennies per buck......but ....you know what? ....I think it might just be easier for you to buy scooby bucks in bulk and instead of all those pennies just send me some of your gold supplies quarterly just to make it easy.....better yet I got a better idea, you hang on to what’s left of your gold and I will just tie the scooby bucks charge to your nations population as collateral, if your scooby buck fees get to be more than you can manage you can hand over some of your people to pay your scooby bucks finance charge debt, if you agree that not all of your population have the same value, which we can negotiate on a case by case basis, just keep sending your fees to us across the pond and we will furiously create those scooby bucks out of thin air for you.....imagination I love it
