I do feel for these people

and I do hope they are helped. I would not want my children in that situation. But, I also think people should evaluate and take stock in what might happen in a future shortage situation. Before the great depression people used to stock up all year long in case of times of being unable to work or lean times. It's easy with supermarkets and cash stations and fast food restaurants to become complacent.

Problem is, that kind of existence is balanced on the edge of a knife. Pull away the money (freeze on the banks) the jobs (power outage) your house (flood or other natural disaster) gas shortages. It's like a house of cards. Pull out the foundation everything falls apart for everyone.

If everyone is self sufficient for their basic needs then everyone has their own independent solid foundation. This allows for more charity type work because only some people will need help rather than everyone.
