Re: Panic buying
Rational for causing harm to everyone else.
The same as in a theater and seeing/hearing of a fire. It's *rational* to punch, push and shove everyone else out the way as you leave to confirm you live.
It does not have the result you expect though.
I agree, people may be mistaken, emotional and irrational. But I don't agree it's the right way to act, I just hope they learn before it gets worse.
