Theft is on the rise in a worsening economy

There are many reasons why this Depression will be worse than the first. The criminal factor is one. Because back in the 30's and 40's, a much larger percentage of Americans were self-sufficient. Back then, you weren't considered a quack if you had a pantry full of emergency food and water, and a garden growing in your back yard.

As the situation deteriorates, and more and more people who cannot take care of themselves without the State get torn from the grid, they will be forced to turn to violence. Especially as the currency is destroyed and precious metals such as copper becomes more and more valuable. As the economy continues to crumble, we will start tearing each other apart. I won't be around for that.
