In an imagined widespread

In an imagined widespread shortage of food, fuel, etc. there would definitely be widespread violence. Parents protecting their kids can get very desperate, for example. On the other hand, many people also help each other out..."enlightened self-interest", anyone?.

Imagined? where do you come up with imagined?
