Key difference between stockpiling and hoarding is whether you deprive others. Building a surplus gradually over time hurts nobody.Before the Kung Flu, having 200 rolls of TP was just solid prepping. Maybe a little whack but perfectly acceptable.
After the Kung Fu, having 200 rolls of TP is depriving others of vital supplies?
If everyone had gradually built up supplies they need to live, years ago, then EVERYBODY would have 200 rolls of tp and there'd be no panicking.
Yes, I know it's just a meme. But I don't accept that being prepared to be reasonably self sufficient is anything but prudent.
