Fingers crossed that all of humanity hasn't become as dense as Dresden.
But this is another thread for another time.
This is not about being violent/evil. This is about doing whatever it takes to survive. Just because you had to kill your neighbor last night to get his food/ fuel, does not mean that you wont trade that fuel for ammo or different supplies. Even the most passive man will do crazy things when he has to choose life or death.
