Really. I know you don't recognize it, but america is in total social breakdown. Folks just plain hate each other. It did not used to be like this.
Okay so social breakdown happens. You think again that you're going to hold up against the roving bands of domestic army units, National Guard units, and street gangs that will rise up after society collapses? Someone will know how well defended your house is, which means someone will know that you have stuff worth getting there.
National Guard units have bazookas and maybe even tanks. You may have the option to join them. But if they're hungry, they're coming for your food.
Your second paragraph is only true because of the media sources you choose to consume. Step outside the bubble sometime and you'll see that people are getting along as well if not better than they ever have. When was last race riot in this country? We actually live in the most peaceful, prosperous time in human history. People like you don't notice it because you lack any historical perspective.
