I was watching The Road yesterday and it made me think, this could be close to what it is like for people living in areas that have been war torn for years, no infrastructure, little food, restricted or no clean water, lawlessness etc. Hopeless desolation.
I watched that movie recently as well, the thing that bothered me most was the cannibalism.
Well yes, the cannibalism scenario is horrible to contemplate but highly likely once people start starving. Remember the Andes plane crash? I think the survivors of the crash were seriously f%#d up from what they had to do to survive
