The current state of the economy means we're going to continue to see the effects of this Depression, such as theft of pretty much anything of value, especially food. Even leftist mouthpiece Paul Krugman admitted yesterday that we are in a Depression. I'm concerned that as more people 'wake up' and realize what is happening that the events described in this article are going to be happening on a much greater scale. My belief is we should try to help others as much as we can, but that no one has the right to come and steal what you have set aside for your family. So take precautions now and plan for the worst, while still hoping this whole thing turns around.
