Experts predict that the want and suffering of the Great Depression will create "a generation of cannibals". Panicked people flee their homes to escape a devastating invasion and posin gas attack. Life comes to a standstill as people watch a strange dust descend from the sky.
The spread of the Great Depression and the first rumblings of a new World War cause a sense of angst and doubt to grow: fueled by rumors, media, and personal expectations that things will get even worse. Dust storms sweep across the continent, and newsreels show the collapse of Europe and Asia. Adults worry that the next generation will grow up to become criminals and barbarians.
No bad news sounds implausible, no crisis seems unbelievable.
