Thinking about this, the question seems irrelevant. From a societal perspective; are we not already in collapse? Most everybody acts like “drunken sailors.” As I write this, I am drinking.
In a state of collapse, there is a lack of leadership. Most individuals are incapable of taking care of themselves. Our society has been in a state of gradual decine. As we sit drinking expresso and/or alcohol, dependent on the time of day, we see a culture full of childish and indulgent people. We see a government that plays to this indulgence. While doing so, what goes on behind the scenes is about control.
Listening to Obama the other day, I am dismayed by the continual lack of understanding. It is incredible that anybody would accept, let alone, respect current leaderahip. With that being said, it is hard to positive.
