In the last few days a not yet officially anounced decision by the government to update the civil defence plans (last time changes were made during the cold war) caused some stir on the internets. Among other things it is now recommended to keep enough food and water in your place to last for a week or so. This got some to think of russian tanks rolling westwards and others to warn of fear mongering. But even without this scenario it should be kept in mind how vulnerable modern/digital society is, for everything depends on working electricity and data connections. This includes the supply chains of supermarkets and other stores, and thus reminded me of this frames I took a few weeks ago. They don’t show the effects of society collapsing though, just the last day of a fire sale to clean out the inventory of a drugstore before renovation.
