We in America think about the food that we purchase at the supermarket as long as you have the ability to buy we do not worry about how that head of lettuce or a sirloin steak that we have for dinner. I have thought about what would happen if I could not go to the store when I want to and being comfortable with the fact that if I have money there is no problem. I point to the country of Venezuela which is going through a lack of food but also a currency that is totally worthless. It has gotten to the point of the average worker has to work for a month to earn enough to buy food for two days. The Socialist government who mostly depended on oil revenues that paid for 95% of the country’s bills. The price of oil plummeted and now the citizens are in dire straits, to say the least.
This the beginning of the breakdown of society as we now know it. When the food supply is threatened we become I would say less law-abiding. All of our fruits and vegetables are picked by the hands of people who do this work who are usually undocumented workers. Under the Trump administration, those who come to this country are being rounded up by ICE at a pace that is increasing every day. It seems that we are cutting off our nose to spite our face. The problem with those who will accept living in the shadows to keep our shopping experience tolerable will have to be resolved before it hits us where it really hurts in our bank accounts. If you are lucky enough to have one. The new world order is awaiting us all. I cannot say this enough. Knowledge is power.
