I JOKED EARLIER about stockpiling food, but in fact I had a conversation the other day with someone at the University who said quite a few of her friends were doing that. And these are lefty-artsy types, not traditional survivalists. Is it a sign of growing economic panic, or is it just part of the mainstreaming of survivalism? Or maybe both?
Neither. It’s a sign of left-wing performance art. It’s comparable to the long-standing and never-executed threat to leave the country if this or that Republican becomes president, but can actually be effectuated without losing your rent-controlled loft. Plus you need the stuff you’re buying anyway.
