Economic collapse

 

By Sarah Landers

(NaturalNews) According to a heartbreaking report by All Self Sustained, an elderly man was threatened with a knife last month by a man and a woman in a home invasion – the pair were looking to steal food.

71-year-old Luis Rosales answered the door of his New Jersey apartment in the afternoon and was confronted by a man and woman who were armed with an eight-inch kitchen knife. The pair forced themselves inside, threatening Rosales with death if he made too much noise.

The suspects used pepper spray to affect Rosales’ vision before ransacking his apartment and raiding his fridge, telling Rosales that they were hungry. They also took his wallet.

A sign of things to come?

The report shows that a combination of “the economy and lack of social civility” has started to reach a level where US citizens are now robbing food from other people, as reported by All Self Sustained. This might only be the beginning – the economy is on the verge of collapse; unemployment continues to be a major problem; and wage growth is stagnant.

It is thought that 45 million Americans are now relying upon food stamps, and civil uprising caused by the removal of government-issued food stamps is considered to be a huge threat to society as we know it. And it’s not just the US economy that’s suffering – the world economy is also in complete crisis.

According to the World Socialist Web Site, more than 1 million people in the US may soon lose their government food stamp benefits if they fail to meet work requirements. In a government move that could stimulate the economy by encouraging employment while saving taxpayer money, there will soon be a three-month limit on food stamp benefits for unemployed adults aged 18–49 who are not classified as disabled or raising minors; critics, however, claim the move could increase crime and hunger.

The recent home invasion by the suspects searching for food reinforces the idea that hunger and food insecurity are on the rise. According to statistics by Feeding America, as reported by the World Socialist Web Site, 48.1 million Americans are currently living in a food-insecure household. Food banks gave away 4 billion pounds of food last year, and on the basis of the cutoffs being implemented soon, social service and food banks are preparing for a massive influx of hungry people.

American Conservative Daily News reports that the US is on the verge of the “greatest food crisis in history,” explaining that certain types of food are already becoming more difficult to find and that the price of certain foods, for example meat, has shot up. The cost of eating has increased at a time when the economy is in collapse and this will mean an increased risk of riots and civil unrest – as well as an increase in the number of hungry Americans.

Crime rates will increase as well, as seen by the recent home invasion, meaning that there could be some very dark times ahead if the economy does not improve. As there could be tough times ahead, it’s important that you prepare to become self-reliant now. Learn more by signing up for the Self Reliance Summit!
