Ramón Muchacho, Mayor of Chacao in Caracas… reported that in Venezuela, it is a “painful reality” that people “hunt cats, dogs and pigeons” to ease their hunger.
People are also reportedly gathering vegetables from the ground and trash to eat as well.
The crisis in Venezuela is worsening everyday due in part to shortages reaching 70 percent. This to go along with the world’s highest level of inflation.
The population’s desperation has begun to show, with looting and robberies for food increasing all the time. This Sunday, May 1, six Venezuelan military officials were arrested for stealing goats to ease their hunger, as there was no food at the Fort Manaure military base.
Those animals will not last long. There are areas in Italy which had no songbirds for decades, because during periods of hunger the Italians hunted even the small songbirds to extinction. Once those animals are gone, the only meat left may be human, and then the real amygdala starts.
One of the things to watch for and document in this K-shift, is how fast K-returns. We have seen the decline into r, and noticed how it takes several generations, over which the decline is cumulative. That implies, strongly, that the decline into r is epigenetic.
Amygdala activation is shocking though, far more than simply living without threat or hunger. And it is more shocking the more r you are. I wonder if that will make the shift to K faster than the decline into r.
On the coming shift, it will be interesting to see if it takes two or three generations to produce the types of hordes who will hunt down and execute SJWs to rebuild great societies, or if, in the horror and hyper-angst of r-amygdalae meeting K-conditions, the K-shift occurs much faster than the decline into r.
