PACK YOUR RICE : Worldwide Famine Is Coming!

It's a perfect storm : climate, agriculture and society have run straight into a brick wall.

Food supplies were globalized instead of localized. The exact opposite of what should have happened.

Agriculture was based on long summers, short harvest seasons and zero inventory just-in-time deliveries. The exact opposite of what should have happened.

Society counted on food surpluses, cashed-up consumers and excess production into the distant future. The exact opposite of what should have happened.

Harvest technology orbited around cheap oil and abundant shipping to keep costs down even when bringing food from distant shores. The exact opposite of what should have happened. The rails rusted and trucking was king. Bad moves all around.

It's an edible feast of fail but caloric content is close to zero.

Hope you have been doing what we have advised since 1998 and you have PACKED IT.

Hasn't it always been considered sensible for people to prepare for lean times and bad harvests? Warnings about such things have been in the bible and common knowledge for countless years, yet people have chosen to ignore and do all the wrong things that you have pointed out here. The entire system is built on assuming the best instead of preparing for or having some kind of insurance (like packing your rice) for the worst.

When the slightest crack appears and starts spreading the whole thing will shatter. It was madness and arrogance to think that the lean times could never happen to these generations.

There will be mass starvation and likely die-offs after a year or so of this. Prices will shoot up so high that people will not be able to buy enough to live and then the prices will be too high even for that.

What makes this ridiculous IS THAT THIS HAS ALREADY HAPPENED BEFORE YET PEOPLE STILL CANNOT BELIEVE IT CAN HAPPEN AT ALL. How can people be so blind?

All those centralized systems are wonderfully prone to breakdown. The Intentional Survivors will arise out of their decentralized competencies. Key Nodes = FAIL. Distributed networks = success

We'll all be Amish; better yet Mennonites [Amish + weapons training ]

Got to agree with OhioDude. Those who don't prepare are preparing to fail, as they say.

The prize in this game is survival. The sooner someone gets started, the better and anything is better than nothing at all.
