When the plebs cease to become self-sufficient

And independent, civilization can collapse in a calamitous way for a very long time.

It happened to Rome. The best evidence indicates it also happened to the Mayans.

I'm merely pointing out the eventuality. The natural world seems to have its own solution for such things.

Eventually other civilizations rise up from the ashes of the old.

I'm not proposing this as any sort of solution, I am only stating the facts as I see them. The creator of this thread did say to explore the topic and stated that we do not have to tightly define our responses. Don't shoot the messenger, I'm only stating facts as I see them.
