So we wouldn't have the purchasing power to

buy 5 tvs per house, 3 xbox's and all the gadgets mankind can create? You mean my kids will learn about hard work, chores, getting off their asses and doing things? The free meal ticket will be over?

Sounds like a place I will easily embrace - I do however feel bad for all my yuppy towns folk who can barely manage to mow the lawn(never mind actually put the effort into maintaining the mower) without feeling as if they just got out of the salt mines.

We are a fat lazy society - and this is just what the doctor ordered.

And let's face it - it won't collapse - it will slide. China still can't protect those oil shipments with that ONE aircraft carrier.
