American shoppers continued to embarrass themselves in the eyes of the world during yesterday’s shopping extravaganza. While smart shoppers stayed home and avoided the insanity by ordering gifts online, the melees were alive and well in malls and big box stores across the country.

When it becomes difficult to tell the difference between that giant horde of zombies on The Walking Dead and shoppers on the day after Thanksgiving, it’s pretty evident that we have a serious problem.

Watch these videos, and just imagine if these people and their children were hungry.  What if you stood between them and the food they felt they should have? Do you really think that they’ll be more civilized when the prize is life-saving food and not a cheap TV?  Is there really any question that preppers should be armed?

Use this as a case study in collapse behavior.

The Black Friday 2015 Videos

In our first video, an adult snatched a vegetable steamer out of the hands of a child. As the stunned child looked on, the mother took off after the steamer snatcher, who told her not to be so aggressive.

Several fights erupted in this stampede through a shopping mall that looked uncannily like the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, except with human participants instead of horned ones.



Here’s a Wal-Mart television brawl, this time in Texas.

At yet another Wal-Mart, this employee had enough and took down a customer.

This man was so determined to get a “deal” that he went all Mission Impossible, scurrying across coolers in order to get to his desired sale item more quickly.

The lunacy seems to have spread to the UK this year, if this video from Yorkshire is anything to judge by.

The Joke is on Them

And here’s the thing: These sales actually aren’t that good. In fact, some products are actually triple the price that they were 3 weeks ago. They are behaving this shamefully and paying more and their lack of research to determine this says that they’re probably not thinking ahead enough to prep.

This isn’t a one-time thing. It happens every single year.

Now…think about this.

What if there was no food? No water? No medicine? What if the grocery store was cleaned out and there was no sign of it restocking any time soon?  How would this same throng of people behave to get the last loaf of bread or case of canned goods?  What would they do if they knew you had food in your home while they had nothing?

I think we all know the answer to this question. If people are willing to assault another human being over a vegetable steamer, they will definitely lay siege to your home if you have food and they do not.

You can stockpile until you have a decade of supplies put back, but if you can’t defend it, you don’t actually own it. You only have your carefully collected supplies and preps because no one has bothered taking them away from you yet.  You have what you have based on the goodwill of others, who are stronger, greater in number, more ruthless, and better armed.  When everyone else is doing it and there’s little to no chance of legal consequences, these crazy Black Friday shoppers will look as harmless as a bunch of little old ladies playing Bingo.

You may not like hearing this, but you need only to check out the videos above to realize how thin the veneer of our civilization really is.

  • It stuck me deep, when you said those that milk the system, im surrounded by them here, I worked 45 years, funny thing is, i have all those flat screen tv s, nice things, and they mean little now, most of the comforts, or mainland ways of life, Ive left behind. they can have their tvs, im staying out here, far far far as i cab get from all the lemmings, im living in a serious space.
    May I warn you all, any government, that can give you all you want, can also take all you have, for 50 years, this sinister plan has been in motion, ive watched them destroy freedom … first, by greed, the family unit destroyed, morals, intense py ops, to make sure, a distrust exists between men. Not one of you is free, even those with 50 mill liquid, you with much money, have much to lose, now, open your mouth to speak truth, and you will lose it all. dont take me wrong, im a capitalist all the way, i managed to stay free, all my life, until now, and if im no longer able to be free, in my situation, freedom, has become an illusion. The one world government, that you all don’t want, is already in place.militarily, and politically. there is something bigger, than what many know, behind the why, of the change you are all seeing, Daisy knows me well, when I say, its a solar, earth event, that drives the governments, its what jade helm is about, it is the reason every military on earth has combined, im not going to speak more on that.
    I will say, the entire southern mass, of south America, is sliding east, Africa sliding west, you see, i watch the plates, that’s, what i do.
    I know for SURE, they are prepared for disaster on a scale beyond anything we have ever seen. There are things, i could say, that many just wont understand, it takes years of study, im trying though, out of simple human care, im trying. I think, I might as well say it in the simplest terms, the axis tilted, we are sure of that, we are getting bombarded, by meteors, we know that for sure also, there is an outside influence, a cyclic event, well underway. And no, i don’t know the date. But, ive seen, and documented, things beyond the norm, Ive shown this to those who reach many, with photos. Ive spoken much, on this, im tired.
    I have one conclusive thing to say, the earth events, are not over, if you pray, pray the scientists succeed. NO ONE, can, or has, debunked, what I have been cursed to know, because its true. Look for yourselves, at just one thing, and if you are smart, it will show you much, look under the ocean, at the lower pacific undersea ridge, then look at the Atlantic undersea ridge…. in this manner, you will be able to see the movement. You may not want to know, what is above. Daisy, has one thing so right, a truth, that all better listen real good, PREPARE yourselves. The media, is hiding the continuing disasters, worldwide, it has not gotten better. its increasing. Imagine, what people would do, if they knew civilization, might come to a sudden stop…………….not to scare, but to inform.
    besides this, an enemy of all of us, is within, can it get worse?
    People, dont want to hear, or face these things. And I dont blame you.
