Orlov points out that the soviet system where housing was guaranteed prevented mass evictions and the soviet system of food distribution continued long after the state had dissolved. This softened the impact of collapse bigtime.
Here we have no such help. Without money in this society, and given that it won't collapse overnight as in some places, there will be evictions and starvation. Food stamps won't exist as they do much longer and unfortunately our government has no methods of direct distribution of basic staple foods to people.
There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.
