Report: Sri Lanka Cannot buy oil
They went organic by stroke of a magic wand. Now into famine. How this plays out, nobody knows.
Just six months of famine can kill millions. Judging by the 17 books on famine I have read — now they will be in the fighting and robbing stage. Gangs forming or formed. Gangs can last longer.
People wandering around the streets and in the forest. Hiding every scrap of food that cannot be eaten immediately.
The government will confiscate food and do price controls that will not work.
Within a month of food truly running out, most will have returned to their homes, or be somewhere staring off into the distance. They will have eaten the leather, cats, dogs, cows, tree bark, and birds, some will be eating children, family, and strangers. Cannibals have a major survival advantage — and tons of people turn out to jump that threshold within weeks.
Farmers stop planting because the government and robbers rob them, and they are bankrupt or starving. Famine creates famine.
Diseases explode. Bodies unburied.
But nobody knows. Maybe they will find a way. Donors?
Their government made decisions and now there will be death.
