Mass Starvation: Here’s Why Most Of America Is Completely Unprepared

May 11, 2024 56 Comments

This article was written by Brandon Smith and originally published at Prepper All-Naturals

The concept of mass starvation has not been in the forefront of American society for a very long time. Even during the Great Depression the US was majority agrarian and most people knew how to live off the land. In fact, the US has never suffered a true national famine. There have been smaller regional instances of famine (such as during the Dust Bowl in the 1930s), but nothing coming remotely close to the kinds of famines we have seen in Asia, the Eastern Bloc, Africa or the Middle East in the past 100 years.

Even Western Europeans dealt with major famines during the World Wars (like the Dutch Famine) and that experience has left an imprint on their collective consciousness. Most Americans, on the other hand, don’t get it. Because we have lived in relative security and economic affluence for so long the idea of ever having to go without food seems “laughable” to many people. When the notion of economic collapse is brought up they jeer and call it “conspiracy theory.”

Compared to the Great Depression, the US population today is completely removed from agriculture and has no idea what living off the land means. These are not things that can be learned in a few months from books and YouTube videos; they require years of experience to master.

I will say that things have changed dramatically in the past two decades I have been writing for the liberty media. When I started back in 2006 the preparedness movement was incredibly small and often people were afraid to broach such topics in public forums.

In the past several years preparedness culture has EXPLODED in popularity. Millions of Americans are now dedicated survival experts with extensive preps and firearms training. Prepping and shooting is no longer the realm of tinfoil hat “crazies”, now it’s considered cool.

The credit crash of 2008-2009 certainly helped wake people up to the reality of economic instability in the US. Then the covid pandemic, the lockdowns and the attempts at medical tyranny really shocked Americans out of their stupor. Everything we “conspiracy theorists” have been warning about was suddenly confirmed in the span of a couple of years. Every time globalists and governments create a crisis they only inspire more preppers.

The greater problem in terms of famine is not that individual Americans are not aware of the threat; many of them are. The problem is that our infrastructure and logistical systems are designed to fail and there’s not much the average citizen can do about it.

The just-in-time freight system is perhaps one of the worst ever devised in terms of community redundancy. Any disruption no matter how minor could cut off supplies to a town or city for days or weeks. Then there’s the interdependency that comes with food being produced outside most states. If your state does not have a solid agricultural base then it will be reliant on outside food sources during a crisis. What guarantees are there that your region will be able to secure food from elsewhere?

Furthermore, most of the populace, even those that are preparing, have never experienced large scale starvation events before. It’s difficult to adapt mentally to a threat that one has never seen.

I suggest people who want to know what starvation feels like practice it from time to time. Try fasting for 24 hours, then try fasting for 48 hours. See how many days you can go without eating (just be sure to drink plenty of water). My maximum was seven days (after months of practice), and what I found was that after day three the hunger pangs actually stop altogether. You don’t go crazy, you don’t get violent; at most you might get tired, but you will also be surprised at how heightened your thinking becomes and how much energy you still have.

The human body can survive for three weeks or more without a single bite of food. My suspicion is that initial panic over potential hunger is the thing that causes the most violence during famines. People encounter starvation and lose their minds within the first three days. First-stage stomach pains and fogginess causes them to react without thinking and this leads to the widespread riots and other crisis events we are used to seeing in history during food shortages.

Fasting is a way to educate yourself on what it means to starve; it’s not as bad as it seems as long as you have some fat stores in your body. When you hit the point of muscle loss and organ deprivation, that’s when things change and the possibility of death arises. Having some familiarity with the feeling of true hunger will help you to avoid panic should the real thing ever occur in the future.

The greater problem is not what you can endure, though. Watching people you care about starve is much more difficult. This is not something you can practice for and it could be a far more powerful motivator when it comes to looting and crime during a crash.

The goal of course is to avoid famine altogether. Food storage is the foundation of any survival plan. Anyone who claims that jumping right into agriculture and hunting and wild edibles is the solution has never actually had to survive off the land in their lives. The reality is, finding enough food and growing enough food to live on is difficult for most people even in normal times.

During collapse crops are often difficult to plant safely. They can be stolen or destroyed easily and require large communities of people to maintain and protect. Even smaller gardens can draw attention from undesirables and are hard to hide.

Hunting might be useful initially if you live in a rural area, but you won’t be the only person with the same idea and animals will move out of a region quickly if they are being hunted on a daily basis. You’ll have to go further and further out to find them and that’s risky during a crisis.

Wild edibles are nice in spring and summer when they are plentiful, but then again, if you’re hiking around expending more calories that you can get from these plants then the entire exercise is pointless. I tend to find that wild edibles proponents are the most delusional when it comes to the logistics of survival. Survivalists who think they’re going to run to the woods and live off of the random plants they find will probably die.

Growing food, hunting food and foraging food are all supplemental measures, especially in the first years of any crisis event. Without a primary emergency supply most people will not make it. Food storage has been a mainstay of civilization for thousands of years for a reason – It works. When larger secure communities are established then agriculture can return and self sustaining production makes food storage less important. Until then, what you have in your basement or your garage is the only thing that’s going to keep you alive.

Unfortunately, there are some people out there who think they don’t need to store supplies because they plan to take from other people. Firstly, anyone who makes this their Plan A is probably a psychopath and I have zero empathy for them. Secondly, such people won’t stay alive very long. With every violent encounter the risk of injury or death increases; looters and raiders will be whittled down rather quickly as they get picked off by people defending their resources.

It’s not like the movies, folks; marauders will disappear swiftly during a crash. After the first year I would be surprised if any of these individuals or groups still exist.

In the meantime, the initial stages of collapse are going to be a shock for many Americans. It could be a grid down event, an economic collapse, a supply chain collapse, etc., but the panic associated with hunger will be ever present. People who understand the nature of famine can avoid panic and organize for safety. They will survive and thrive. People who don’t understand famine will freak out in the first week without food and make detrimental mistakes.

Mental preparedness is just as important as physical preparedness. Keep that in mind as we move forward into uncertain times.

 

One survival food company, Prepper All-Naturals, has proactively dropped prices to allow Americans to stock up ahead of projected hikes in beef prices. Their 25-year shelf life steaks currently come at a 25% discount with promo code “invest25”.

    I agree with most of the points made.

    The problem prepared people face though, is they are the 1 in 100000 with the “have”s

    And that means 99999 “have nots” around them.

      Not exactly. More like 1 in 10 people, especially in conservative areas, but they will still face a lot of difficulty. That’s why you need to organize with people of like mind.

      • PvtCharlieSlate May 11, 2024 at 2:00 pm

        Be careful of those now supposedly “like minded” people who have so far done nothing to prepare and are now loudly agitating that “WE” have to get organized.

          • Cody May 12, 2024 at 10:23 pm

            As a law enforcement officer, and taking my experience into account, I think the biggest underestimation is the mental stability piece. Great evil, sadistic thoughts and violence hides within humans, just under what is visible to the everyday person. When people cannot cope, they will lash out, and will justify any criminal action to support their families. The bottom line is most large cities and small cities have very few cops patrolling, the idea law enforcement can protect a city only works when the crime is not occurring at the same time. I patrol a valley with only two other guys, if a few people got together and wanted to create havoc they could do more damage than most people think. The moral dilemma preppers will face will be soul crushing. Depending on how long famine persists, people will eat other people, no doubt about it. Men’s hearts will truly fail them for fear. Minor incidents take place, and people are so distraught they cannot recover, let alone the entire system collapsing. I guess my point in all this is that a collapse scenario will bring terrors people cannot imagine

        • Tyler Durden May 13, 2024 at 4:04 pm

          I wholeheartedly agree with you. The first rule of Fight Club is “don’t talk about Fight Club:. The first rule of prepping is “don’t talk about your preps. Listen to what people say and take note. They will tell you what they will do, even if they don’t know it themselves.

      • Joe May 11, 2024 at 2:24 pm

        You think to highly of how many are actually prepped. There is not 10% ready.

        Of the few dozen people I know who consider themselves “prepped”

        Think a full pantry a water bib and 1000s of rounds of ammo means they are ready.

        Ready for what? They live in a suburb of a major city and have zero means to maintain supply past their few months of actual food.

          No, I don’t. I know for a fact based on my 20 years of experience working within the Liberty Movement. Far more people are prepping than you know and most will not share that info.

          • Gauntlet33 May 13, 2024 at 2:23 pm

            I agree that there’s many more prepping than what many may think. An an example, my next door neighbor in LA is a for-sure vaxxer, but even he sees the necessity of prepping and has a chicken coop. He’s definitely not a 100% prepper, but I’ve seen many other Californians that are definitely not Conservatives who are seeing the need to start raising their own food.

      • craig jay May 12, 2024 at 6:27 am

        yup i have gone 21 days without food, wasnt that hard after 3 days.

        • Gauntlet33 May 13, 2024 at 2:24 pm

          Supposedly, the reason the first 3 days is tough is that the body is de-toxing. After that, as long as you’re eating pretty healthy, the body just burns clean.

          • Robert (QSLV) May 15, 2024 at 8:36 am

            Exactly. I use 72 hour fast from time to time just to clean up.

  • Sam O May 11, 2024 at 10:21 am

    And the best answer is…. wait for it…. Chickens. You can bring a couple back in the woods with you and survive for a while if you really had to. The eggs are natures perfect protein. If you aren’t forced into the woods and have a rooster, you can hatch them for meat and be eating them in 90 days. And still have the eggs all along.

    Food storage will run out. Food production will keep you alive.

      Brandon Smith May 11, 2024 at 12:30 pm

      You’ll need a large number of chickens to feed a family everyday. Also, they generally don’t lay eggs in late fall through the winter. They are great, but only a supplemental food source at best unless you have hundreds of them.

      • Joe May 11, 2024 at 2:26 pm

        You need 2 birds per person and a solar panel with battery and heat lamp keep them laying year round.

        We eat eggs daily

          Brandon Smith May 11, 2024 at 4:00 pm

          Incorrect. You will never survive on that. Two eggs a day is less than 200 calories. The average person needs at least 2000 calories per day.

      • Breezy brow May 11, 2024 at 3:43 pm

        Think rabbits too, New Zealanders. One male and two does. Should get you going nicely.
        Big plus. They’re QUIET, and don’t crow.
        Stealth is now a virtue.

        • Laura Ann May 11, 2024 at 8:03 pm

          We thought about raising rabbits which is ok in city limits in subdivisions. I discussed this with several others like-minded. We agreed to pass because they are too much like cats, their paws, hair texture.

          • Gauntlet33 May 13, 2024 at 2:27 pm

            I like rabbits as pets and couldn’t kill them myself for meat, but kudos to those that could. Also, I hear that rabbits are too lean on fats, so much easier to survive on chicken meat.

      • JamesM May 13, 2024 at 5:18 am

        Exactly – you’d have to plan for at least 1/2 a chicken per day per person, under ideal scenarios.

        We’ve been farming/homesteading for years. There is also the matter of feeding the chickens (they are excellent foragers but don’t expect regular eggs or meat in 90 days if that is all they get).

        They also need ample protection from predators of all kinds.

        If you aren’t already set up with a generally self-sufficient homestead, you better find someone in your circle who is and offer whatever help you can!

    • Wild tree May 12, 2024 at 9:37 am

      My first hand account on how to safely store 50 lb bags of rice for 24 years, the short answer is DoD Hardigg cases such as you can find in Army surplus stores that sells with latches every 2 inches and rubber seal. We are still eating rice stored since Y2K, thus first hand experience beats the “best guess”.

      Chicken and rice, heaven in a desert. Rice sustains 2/3 of the world’s population. Think of the possibilities of canning meat……

    • Cori May 12, 2024 at 11:31 pm

      How do you feed them? They need proper nutrition and secure housing and water in order to produce those eggs!

  • Wayne May 11, 2024 at 12:22 pm

    Great article! As many have found, for those who are able, periodic fasting helps clear the mind and spirit. It also gives the digestive system a rest which in turn will reward you later by working more efficiently.

    One thing not mentioned is when coming off a prolonged fast, don’t rush out and get a burger and fries… you’ll be sicker than a dog! Start back to eating with a couple of days of light meals such as soups or bone broth. Your stomach will thank you later!

    Practice growing food now, and if you live in long season areas, sweet potatoes will save your life. They are full of nutrients and the average marauder won’t know they’re food.

    • Joe May 11, 2024 at 2:35 pm

      Let us look at how many people actually have the space to grow anything?

      What percentage of our population could grow enough to last, a week? Let alone survive.

      There are far more have nots that will be ensuring the haves…..”share”

      The numbers say, majority of society has 7 meals on hand….

    • Gauntlet33 May 13, 2024 at 2:30 pm

      I totally agree. Many people want to grow leafy greens, which are high in nutrients, but very low in calories. Better in my opinion to go with say sweet potatoes which are great in nutrients and also a good source of energy and easy to grow. Every time I get a spoiled spud I don’t want to eat, I bury it in the garden and it takes off.

    Clean water will be the problem after just a few days. Most don’t have much if the tap shuts off, and surface water in most places will get you sick with parasites.

    • Joe May 11, 2024 at 2:42 pm

      Grab yourself a few pairs of those ‘berkey’ style filter replacements. Run about $50 for a pair

      I have been using them for years to clean water retrieved from a pond near the property

      I have also used them to filter swimming pool water.

      Get about 1500 gallons from each filter.

      Slap a pair in a diy 5gal bucket setup and you are good to go on the filtration part. And they are easy to store and carry extras.

      You can use one and make a small portable 1 gal rig using PVC pipe for taking on adventures

      • rick m May 12, 2024 at 8:57 am

        Berkey website has no black filter elements available. I bought a Big Berkey and replacement filters in the fall of ’20, haven’t needed the replacements yet. The single best prep I’ve done.
        It’s necessary to do a lot of unpleasant thinking to be able to prep effectively, and most people cannot think ahead. I live a block from the Gulf in hurricane country and the unprepared mob the stores every storm. Someone has always saved them in the past and they have expectations for that to be the case in the future.

      • Jazames May 12, 2024 at 11:14 am

        Berkey water filters are not $50 they are $180 a pair black ones last 5 years the arsnick and fluoride white ones last 1 year or 10,000 gallons those are $100 for 2

  • Mississippi Shepherd May 12, 2024 at 4:48 am

    Gardening is not guaranteed. Bad weather, critters, disease, etc., can damage or wipe out a garden completely. Always, always, always, plant twice what you need.
    Food storage (a well stocked pantry as mom called it) is a absolute necessity, a “Plan B” or “Safety Net” if you will for those times your garden is insufficient.
    For those that say, “God will provide”, your correct, but not always in the ways we think.
    God does feed the birds, but He does not throw the food in their nests.
    God given freedoms, come with responsibility, not entitlements.

  • David May 12, 2024 at 5:18 am

    I moved to the sticks. Bought a farm/ranch. Surrounded by wilderness with water resources. I’m effectively the caretaker of the family bug out destination. Unfortunately, it’s doubtful anyone else will make it here unscathed. Medical Supplies and medical knowledge are often overlooked. Also, knowledge of local flora and fauna. There remain four legged predators out and about. Snake bite (rattlesnake, copperhead and water moccasins). While prepared, it’s a tough go! Plus, you accumulate birthdays and your body doesn’t always cooperate. Don’t go it alone! Friends, family and neighbors (mutual aid).

  • Rodster May 12, 2024 at 6:07 am

    The reason this article clicks with me is because humans globally and for the most part in the US have been domesticated. The “JIT” delivery system was designed to accelerate the need for the populace to rely on the system.

    Also the government for decades has been steering people away from self reliance and growing food, instead relying on supermarkets and fast foods. In some local municipalities it’s against the law to grow your own food. Then we have people like Bill Gates buying up massive amounts of farmland.

    Was it Henry Kissinger who said, he who controls the food supply and you can controls the people?

  • Roundball Shaman May 12, 2024 at 1:25 pm

    “Mass Starvation: Here’s Why Most Of America Is Completely Unprepared”
    .
    The effects of food starvation are immediate and obvious to everyone. We all need to eat and drink life-sustaining essentials to survive.
    .
    But there is another kind of mass starvation going on these days. That is, Spiritual starvation.
    .
    The human family is starved for meaning and purpose. It is starved for honesty. It is starved for a sense of cooperation and shared fellowship. It s starved for anything positive and uplifting. It is starved for… Joy. Happiness. Even… Bliss.
    .
    And all of these starvations have been deliberately fostered and engineered by the Dark Side to dehumanize and dis-spirit the human family. And ultimately, to move us off a Planet that They try to fully seize for Their own
    .
    We need good purpose and shared goals and a sense of shared humanity to thrive both individually and as a species. And the damnable Dark Side knows this – and know this well.
    .
    We are being starved… as well as we starving ourselves with such things as our total attention to anti-social media and its humanity-debilitating effects on our minds and bodies and spirits. And our eagerness to separate ourselves and fight with each other. We are being choked of life in just about every means possible.
    .
    In an environment such as this… one wonders how long we can survive without the food…the nutrition… and the spiritual grounding and sustenance we need to exist.
    .
    We can take just so much. And then… we won’t have a second chance to save ourselves from the inevitable that the Dark Side has engineered for our previous lives.

    • Naatok May 13, 2024 at 9:10 am

      I agree.
      Anyone who believes they can derive a sense of meaning and/or purpose from the State, from “infotainment” distractions, etc. is lost. Far too many can’t go a day without their “fondle slabs” (portable electronic devices). How are these folks going to maintain sanity, much less survival in a post SHTF world?
      Everyone has a breaking point, and the stressors of survival, immediate and long-term push us toward that. Spiritual beliefs are like a grounding influence that help pull us back from the edge, and make it less likely that we will succumb to despair. It’s an every day challenge that becomes far more challenging with deprivation.
      Even if we ourselves are at least somewhat prepared for the coming times, it will be very difficult for any with empathy for others to watch the unprepared suffer and die. I believe that like faith, community is ultra important. Even if we can’t, as a family, assist those in need we are faced with, a well-organized community might be able to.
      As to raiders and looters, well … into the wicker man with the lot of them.

  • Serge May 13, 2024 at 3:54 am

    Another great article!
    Occasional fasting is also good for your physical and mental health; indeed, it’s worth remembering.

    Still on the topic dealt by your post, comes to mind “The Grapes of Wrath” (1939), a novel by John Steinbeck (later a movie starring Henry Fonda and directed by John Ford).
    The synopsis? Set during the Great Depression, the novel focuses on the Joads, a poor family of tenant farmers driven from their Oklahoma home by drought, economic hardship, agricultural industry changes, and bank foreclosures forcing tenant farmers out of work. Due to their nearly hopeless situation, and in part because they are trapped in the Dust Bowl, the Joads set out for California on the “mother road”, along with thousands of other “Okies” seeking jobs, land, dignity, and a future.
    “Mental preparedness is just as important as physical preparedness. Keep that in mind as we move forward into uncertain times.” INDEED! This novel remains more than topical.

  • David May 13, 2024 at 2:46 pm

    Hi everyone,
    One crucial thing to know if you’re going to try to have a home garden is DON’T BUY HYBRID SEEDS! Hybrid seeds are almost all that is available but they germinate and grow a season but the seeds from their fruit either don’t germinate or if they do, they are spindly and die. Perhaps 3% will fruit but even If they do produce anything
    it is usually small and does not stay true to its ancestry to
    the point of being inedible. Buy only “heirloom” seeds. They put off lots of fruit and their seeds will germinate and be true to species. Good luck to us all.

    An odd thing happened this week, Brandon released this article and then one of the two major supermarkets in Australia had a situation where a lot of their fresh produce shelves were empty 🧐 looks like a beta test from where I’m sitting. Well done on your analysis Brandon, looks like you nailed it again.

    • Serge May 13, 2024 at 3:55 pm

      “A beta test”; before the big crisis by design?! That does not sound good.

  • orca May 15, 2024 at 9:57 am

    can one afford to buy all they need?
    My grandparents canned fish and vegetables for winter because of the high shipping cost and price of shipping in food. The ability to grow crops goes hand in hand with canning and preserving food. Preserving food each year allow one to build up a stock to carry one over till the next planting season. This can greatly supplement purchased food with long storage time. Also, fresh food offers many nutritional advantages. Think sprouts, micro greens, etc.
    One can make a cheap hoop house with rebar, PVC pipe, and clear plastic cover. This allows extended growing season for cold weather crops.
    One should also look at edible landscaping if they have the room.
    The objective is calories per day required! Then comes nutritional requirements.
    Grains and root crops make up the majority of calories consumed around the world.

      Preservation is not the issue – Growing in the midst of a collapse and civil unrest is the issue. Food storage is essential in the beginning. Without it, people will die. Some might be able to grow food, many will not until there is town or county-sized community organization and security.

  • The True Nolan May 15, 2024 at 7:41 pm

    Doing some fasting NOW is a great way to learn practical facts about starvation. As you say, three, four, five days can be a real education.

    You say: “Unfortunately, there are some people out there who think they don’t need to store supplies because they plan to take from other people. Firstly, anyone who makes this their Plan A is probably a psychopath and I have zero empathy for them.”

    I try to be rather choosy about whom I speak with when it comes to survival plans. Over the years I have had a couple people tell me they just plan on taking other people’s stuff. They usually say it with a little laugh: “Ha! I’ll just come to YOUR cabin and take your food! Ha ha!”. My response? “You won’t have to take our stuff. We can use someone like you for security. Just show up, we’ll share with you and you can join up with us!”

    Of course I was lying. No one needs a sociopath. But now, if for some reason they actually DO show up, I know who they are, I know what kind of person they are, and I know what to expect from them. On the other hand they do NOT know what to expect from me. They will only last until they turn their back once. Dogs got to eat too.

    I started planting fruit, nut trees, edible shrubs and groundcovers 25 years ago. I mixed them all up into an edible forest, most people cannot even tell anything is edible. I built pizza ovens, smoke houses, gravity fed bath/ shower area and have 30,000 gallons of tank water. My toilets works without power and have several tons of stored wood, with another hundred ton of standing timber. I have a solar powered hydroponics and a vegetable garden. I am an excellent archer, have different types of animal traps, and I have studied herbal medicine for years. I live in a semi-rural area where locals have everything I have missed.
    The only problem is I am now 70 and will most likely be dead of old age soon.

      Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
