Quote from: AG
Criminally Insane people do not negotiate; they fight to the death, no matter how irrational the biosphere trashing system that gave them all their short term privileges is. It will get ugly very soon.

It will, indeed. Especially when the elites lose control their various conduit schemes to sieve wealth away from working class people.

I wonder whether people will in fact actually "revolt,"given the the state controls every meaningful vector of force. The best way would be for people to become non-cooperative en masse.




Our civilization is far more fragile than meets the eye. TPTB, who are far more concerned with preserving the profit over people and planet (insane) status quo than we-the-people are, know that the present status quo is economically and environmentally unsustainable.

So, what do I think they are going to do about that? They are going to keep their bunkers in high tech condition and keep buying the cops. When, not if, the SHTF, they will attempt to "cull" 90% of the human population.


This is the essence of what I have believed for the past 10-15 years, and what led me to contemplate "collapse" and "doom."

the ethic summed up by 19th century financier Jay Gould:

Quote
"I can always hire half of the working class to kill the other half."

The Great Culling is already under way, whether people are consciously aware or not. The multi-front wars against movement of peoples, against living off grid, against storing rainwater, of all things. All is restrictions on working people while we are reduced to penury. As you note, banjo- and handout-dependent.

We are all afflicted by "presentism;" the belief that the future will look recognizably like the past. It will not. We lack the capacity to imagine a future that will look utterly unlike anything we have known. We see the future fed into the zeitgeist via the "Walkng Dead" franchises, and the notion of a zombie apocalypse complete with drive-thru cannibalism. Nom nom nom...

the Anasazi were said to have served up a dish known as "malcorn." And the flesh of a conquered enemy was known as "longpig." We are not so far removed.

You noted,
Quote
That surviving half will finish destroying the key parts of the biosphere we depend on, descending into nuclear war or cannibalism. The gross barbarism will feed on itself and guarantee more mass death.

Likely.

It will be the perfect libertarian paradise: the endless war of all against all.
