– MILLIONS OF AMERICANS ARE VULNERABLE TO STARVATION (Common Sense Show, Aug 22, 2014):
The cost of food has been steadily increasing in places like Thailand and Venezuela as evidenced by the fact that since the beginning of 2014, riots are occurring in countries that are suffering through extreme food shortages. These mass protests movements may all have one thing in common, increasing food prices are the cause of the civil unrest.
According to Dr. Yaneer Bar-Yam and his research colleagues at the New England Complex Systems Institute (NECSI), they are collectively stating that civil unrest, spurred by food shortages. may be anticipated for their effect by a mathematical model that correlates the variables of rising food costs, diminished and that are related to income and civil unrest. The present data suggests that America is ripe for the same kinds of civil disruption that we are witnessing in Thailand and Venezuela. How bad could the civil unrest become? Nobody can be certain except to say that America is entering into uncharted waters.
