I wonder about Peak Oil - many claim it doesn't exist. I do know that oil is too valuable to be burned up. But that's for another time.
But Sandman does have some important points.
I do think we have going to have a long, slow collapse. The make-work jobs so many women have will go away. What will they do, then? Have to attach themselves to men, as women always do when things get a little bit hard.
I have mentioned this a few times before - wages stopped going up in January, 1974. Since then, wages have been in a long, slow collapse. Technology, fortunately, is getting better. But marriage has also been in a long, slow collapse. Money and marriage in collapse. What else? The importation of Third Worlders - that is a collapse of civilization, too. A long, slow one since '65.
If I can't predict anything else, I will predict if things get worse and worse, women will always attach themselves to a man. So what's going to happen to all these fat ugly women?
