Look at how long it has taken some of you to get on the learning curveof self-sufficiency and are prepared. (Yikes, I'm just starting.) How are "city folks" supposed to do this in a reasonableamount of time? Maybe down the road they will make that choice, but in an economic crisis they will be awful hungry long before. Those in the city will be angry & hungry people. A lot of people in cities are armed.Some may remain civilized, but others will resort to smash and grab and steal what food and supplies they can. Obviously a few here are anticipating that. Others will demand food/supplies from the government. I suspect that Homeless/hungry is one of the type of civil unrest that those Presidential Orders are prepared for. Google FEMA + camps I've been hearing about them for several years now (and dismissed it as extreme) and only recently even thought to google. While people on the internet call them concentrationcamps (and many typos on
interpreting the Exec. Orders in some), I suspect they appear to be in place for a) some type of disaster housing, or b) to house hungry homeless in the event of a major depression or hyper-inflation resulting in the same thing in the end, lots of hungry desperate people. Emphasis on desperate - desperate people do desperate things. Being in a remote area, and self-sufficient under those kind of circumstances - a good thing.And possibly also a target of the government... as one of those presidential orders for FEMA includes being able to control food distribution, production, farm, farm equipment, etc. Granted some of this stuff about FEMA could be "paranoid internet rumors".. but Executive Order 10998ASSIGNING EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS FUNCTIONS TO THE SECRETARY OF AGRICULTURESECTION 1. Scope. The Secretary of Agriculture (hereinafter referred to as the Secretary) shall prepare national emergency plans and develop preparedness programs covering: Food
resources, farm equipment, fertilizer, and food resource facilities.......These plans and programs shall be designed to develop a state of readiness in these areas with respect to all conditions of national emergency.... SECTION 1. Scope. The Secretary of Agriculture (hereinafter referred to as the Secretary) shall prepare national emergency plans and develop preparedness programs covering: Food resources, farm equipment, fertilizer, and food resource facilities, ............... These plans and programs shall be designed to develop a state of readiness in these areas with respect to all conditions of national emergency............... SEC. 2. Definitions. As used in this order: (a) "Food resources" means all commodities and products, simple, mixed or compound, or complements to such commodities or products, that are capable of being eaten or drunk, by either human beings or animals' irrespective of other uses to which such commodities or products may
be. http://www.disastercenter.com/laworder/10998.htm Maybe the government is not only anticipating civil unrest, homeless, hungry,but some form of rebellion. One of these Presidential Orders includes aclause about rounding up dissidents. Look at how they track the militia groups. Or howabout those families in TX that had their own little community thing going on.Geez..... (OK that the FBI, not FEMA,,,, but still Feds.) What about rebellion against capitalism? Do you think we're nearingthat stage? Leslie

been one of those 'end of the world' people. I think it's the frog
in the pot of water...conditions will just get worse and worse and people will put up with it
and adjust. Or maybe some will come to their senses and live a more frugal life.
I'm afraid that modern Americans don't have rebellion in them.
