Mass Starvation: Here's Why Most of America Is Totally Unprepared (Alt-Market)

Whether in the United States or in Europe, I think that few people are aware of the issues, yet we see all these production tools going up in smoke, we see Bill Gates getting his hands on most of the arable land in the United States and we know the agenda of the WEF, for my part I have been trying to stock up for years, but for that you need money... and the only times we have been able to do a bit of stock, we used it all during lean times.

About Brandon Smith

The concept of mass starvation has not been at the forefront of American society for very long. Even during the Great Depression, the United States was predominantly agrarian and most people knew how to live off the land. In fact, the United States has never experienced a true national famine. There have been smaller regional famines (like during the Dust Bowl in the 1930s), but nothing like the famines we experienced in Asia, the Eastern Bloc, Africa or the Middle East over the last hundred years.

Even Western Europeans faced great famines during the world wars (such as the Dutch famine) and this experience left an imprint on their collective consciousness. Most Americans, on the other hand, don't understand. Because we have lived in relative security and economic affluence for so long, the idea of ​​ever having to go without food seems "laughable" to many people. When the concept of economic collapse is brought up, they laugh and call it a “conspiracy theory”.

Compared to the Great Depression, today's American population is completely removed from agriculture and has no idea what it means to live off the land. These are not things you can learn in a few months from books and YouTube videos; it takes years of experience to master them.

I have to say that things have changed dramatically in the last two decades that I have written for libertarian media. When I started in 2006, the prepping movement was incredibly small and people were often afraid to address such topics in public forums.

During the last years, prepping culture has exploded in popularity. Millions of Americans today are survival experts who have undergone extensive training in the preparation and handling of firearms. Preparing and shooting is no longer the preserve of “crazy” people in tin foil hats, but is now considered “cool”.

The credit crash of 2008-2009 certainly helped make people aware of the reality of economic instability in the United States. Then the avian flu pandemic, lockdowns and attempts at medical tyranny really shook Americans out of their stupor. Everything that conspiracy theorists had been warning about was suddenly confirmed in the space of a few years. Every time globalists and governments create a crisis, they only inspire more preppers.

The major problem with famine is not that Americans are unaware of the threat; many of them are. The problem is that our infrastructure and logistics systems are designed to fail and there is little the average person can do about it.

The just-in-time freight system is perhaps one of the worst ever designed in terms of community redundancy. Any disruption, no matter how small, can cut off a city's supply for days or weeks. Added to this is the interdependence that arises from the fact that food is produced outside of most states. If your state does not have a strong agricultural base, it will be reliant on outside food sources in a crisis. What are the guarantees that your region will be able to obtain food elsewhere?

Furthermore, most people, even those who prepare, have never experienced large-scale famine. It's difficult to mentally adapt to a threat you've never seen.

I suggest that people who want to know what it feels like to be starved to practice it from time to time. Try fasting for 24 hours, then 48 hours. See how many days you can go without eating (be sure to drink plenty of water). My max has been seven days (after months of practice), and what I've noticed is that after the third day, the cravings stop completely. You don't go crazy, you don't become violent; you're tired at most, but you'll also be surprised how much your thinking intensifies and how much energy you still have.

The human body can survive for three weeks or more without a single bite of food. I suspect that it is the initial panic over potential hunger that causes most of the violence during famines. People face starvation and lose their minds within the first three days. The stomach aches and fog of the first phase cause them to react without thinking, leading to widespread riots and other crisis events that we are used to seeing in history during food shortages. food.

Fasting is a way to learn what it means to be hungry; It's not as bad as it seems as long as you have fat reserves in your body. When you reach the stage of muscle loss and organ deprivation, things change and the possibility of death arises. Knowing what hunger actually feels like will help you not panic if it happens in the future.

The biggest problem is not what you can endure. It's much harder to watch people you care about starve to death. It's not something you can train yourself to do and could be a much more powerful motivator when it comes to looting and crime during a crash.

The goal is of course to avoid starvation altogether. Food storage is the basis of any survival plan. Anyone who says the solution is to take up farming, hunting, and growing wild plants has never had to survive in the wild. In reality, it is difficult for most people to find and grow enough food to live on, even in normal times.

During times of collapse, it is often difficult to plant crops safely. They can be easily stolen or destroyed and require large communities of people to maintain and protect them. Even small gardens can attract the attention of unwanted people and are difficult to hide.

Hunting may be helpful at first if you live in a rural area, but you won't be the only one with the same idea and animals will quickly leave an area if hunted daily. You will have to go further and further to find them and this is risky in times of crisis.

Wild foods are nice in the spring and summer when they're plentiful, but if you're walking around expending more calories than you can get from these plants, exercise makes no sense. I tend to think that wild food advocates are the most delusional when it comes to the logistics of survival. Survivalists who think they're going to run into the woods and live off random plants they find are probably going to die.

Growing food, hunting, and foraging are supportive measures, especially in the early years of a crisis. Without a primary emergency reserve, most people won't make it. Food storage has been a pillar of civilization for thousands of years for one reason: it works. When larger, safer communities are established, agriculture can resume and self-sustaining production will make food storage less important. In the meantime, what you have in your basement or garage is the only thing that will keep you alive.

Unfortunately, some people think they don't need to stockpile supplies because they plan to take from other people. First of all, anyone who makes this their plan A is probably a psychopath and I have no empathy for them. Second, these people won't stay alive very long. With each violent encounter, the risk of injury or death increases; looters and pillagers will be quickly eliminated by people defending their resources.

It's not like in the movies, the marauders quickly disappear during a crash. After the first year, I would be surprised if these individuals or groups still existed.

In the meantime, the early stages of collapse will come as a shock to many Americans. It could be a grid collapse, an economic collapse, a supply chain collapse, etc. People who understand the nature of famine can avoid panic and organize themselves to safety. They will survive and thrive. People who don't understand starvation will panic in the first week without food and make damaging mistakes.

Mental preparation is just as important as physical preparation. Keep this in mind as we move forward into uncertain times.

A survival food company, Prepper All-Naturals, proactively lowered its prices to allow Americans to stock up ahead of expected beef price increases. Their 25-year shelf life steaks are currently 25% off with promo code “invest25.”
