One of my fears during any disaster are the people who deliberately make a bad situation worse.
It doesn’t matter what manner of disaster has caused a societal collapse. A big danger during the collapse will be gangs of people with nothing to lose and looking to make a bad thing worse.
In recent history, we’ve witnessed people within crowds of demonstrators; instigate violence to insight and perpetuate more violence within the crowd.
Sometime these anarchists are plants from outside groups who want to spark a bigger demonstration or distraction. Sometimes they are plants from the group being demonstrated against to cause the need for a greater use of force from authorities against the demonstrators.
I realized that there’s no shortage of people that have a feeling of bitterness towards authority and the civilized world.
My guess is that there are hundreds of thousands of people who are disgruntled with their station in life. People hiding in plain sight, waiting and hoping for a Zombie Apocalypse to occur in the country. Only then to rise up with their kill list and exact their vengeance upon those they believe to have wronged them.
