Comment: But collapse is not a SOLUTION.

(See in situ)

But collapse is not a SOLUTION.

-- just another round of the same problems. (Government IS the problem, not the solution.) For a more hopeful picture of an alternative future -- a collapse NOT followed by more-of-the-same, read J. Neil Schulman's novel Alongside Night. It's free online -- and pure FUN to read, like early Heinlein. Another free e-book with similar ideas is #agora, which blends in many different ideas like bitcoins as alternatives to REPLACE government "services" with something better. The solution offered by both these books: expose people to something better than government, and people will adopt it willingly, just as a simple matter of self-interest.
