The Everything Shortage, The Great Reset, And 'How Things Should Be'

Grocery shopping’s future will bring severe food rationing as overlords preach: ‘Poverty is good, deprivation is plenty and empty shelves are a reset to the way things should be’

Dave Hodges 

As the Daily Reckoning recently reported in this story titled “Get Ready For Food Rationing”“these people are part of a cult. They do not oppose poverty. They think it’s about time we experienced it. Poverty is good for us. Deprivation is plenty. Inflation is prosperity. Empty shelves are a reset to the way things should be.”

Warning within that story that if we keep traveling down the same path that America is now on, with empty shelves being filled with cardboard cutouts and a supply chain fiasco of the greatest proportions under Joe Biden, we’re headed towards ‘socialism’ and the same kinds of problems experienced by Venezuela and nearly every other socialist nation of late. From this Daily Reckoning story before we continue.:

The Washington Post has published an article (ANP: about the shortages, food price spikes, etc) by one of its regular contributors (Micheline Maynard) with one message: GET USED TO IT! 

She says that we have come to expect too much for the economy. Ever since 1911, she says, we’ve been obsessed with getting stuff and getting it fast. That’s dumb, she says. Deprivation is not only the new normal; it’s the way things should be. 

“Across the country, Americans’ expectations of speedy service and easy access to consumer products have been crushed like a Styrofoam container in a trash compactor,” she writes. “Time for some new, more realistic expectations.” 

For example, she writes of the candy shortage. The milk shortage. The everything shortage. Then she concludes: “Rather than living constantly on the verge of throwing a fit, and risking taking it out on overwhelmed servers, struggling shop owners or late-arriving delivery people, we’d do ourselves a favor by consciously lowering expectations.” 

How bad can it get? She saves the best for the very end: 

“American consumers might have been spoiled, but generations of them have also dealt with shortages of some kind — gasoline in the 1970s, food rationing in the 1940s, housing in the 1920s, when cities such as Detroit were booming. Now it’s our turn to make adjustments.” 

You might read that again. She is defending gas lines. More astonishingly, she is going on about the glorious suffering of wartime, when food was rationed with rationing tickets! You cannot make this stuff up. 

What’s worse, that The Washington Post published it reveals something about what they imagine could be our future. And by future I don’t mean distant future. I mean next year.

These are people for whom socialism was not a failure but a triumph in which people learned to become a new form of community through suffering. In fact, they are pro-suffering. It’s a new form of leftist ideology that has gained steam for decades. Now they are in charge. They get perverse pleasure out of the whole scene. 

It doesn’t matter how bad it gets. Our leaders will never admit failure. They will look at the disaster they are creating and call it success. This is what is truly chilling about the unfolding crisis: They do not believe it is a crisis. They think this is a reset to the way things should work.
