I compare this to the dustbowl years.
While it was hard on people, most survived. They may have lost the farm, but they survived.
Most people, most places can’t grow enough food for the summer months, let alone year round. Where I am, the growing season is a joke, the soil is rock and the deer/elk eat everything the mexicans don’t steal.
Where I grew up, a different story altogether. Gardens grew like weeds, plenty of water, good soil, long growing season, one could relatively easily make a go of it. And they did during the bad years.
Today its not just the climate, the location, but it is a laziness that is in every part of life. TV remotes, you don’t even have to get up to change the channel anymore, a true example of being lazy.
Work in the yard? Thats why we hire people. Lazy!
A couple of years back I called a citizen about a deer that had been hit by a car. He left it, it was too far from the road to drive over to so he didn’t have to carry it. How lazy do you have to be to not need free meat?
