When social policies come home to roost.

I think the US is primed for the same in the near future, as inflation makes the 'poor' people poorer. Sooner or later, bread and circuses will fail to keep the feral ones pacified.... because there will be no money left for bread and circuses.

Even though the home is out in the country a ways, I am beginning to think about hardening it against such futures.

What makes you think inflation makes the poor poorer? Evidence shows periods of high inflation coincide with periods of increases in income share of the bottom 90% at the expense of the top 10%.
