    •  Don't those apocalyptic-type scifi novels...... (7+ / 0-)

      usually end in revolution of some kind?

      Seems to me this kind of extreme worldwide expropriation of life-sustaining elements could very well comprise the ending of a contemporary non-fiction book in the near future.

      Greed and apathy have blinded these corporate heads to what it actually means to be a member of the human race. They think they've evolved into gods or something. But what they must be aware of before they go down this dark malevolent path: is the fact that us mere humans do not tend to go quietly into the good night... (especially when we're thirsty as hell and starving to death)

      What the hell do they think will happen?

        are optimistic.  They're designed to support the belief that the human spirit is strong and noble, and that even when terrible, tragic things happen, we can pull something out of it in the end.  Otherwise, they wouldn't sell.  Nobody is going to pay to read a complete and utter downer.  We have enough of that in our "real" lives.

        "Real Life" (TM) isn't always so uplifting.  The human spirit can be enslaved and oppressed for centuries.  Only a few troublemakers usually bother to struggle, and most of them die in very unpleasant fashions.  Christianity originally became popular because it proposed that God actually loved humans, each and every one of us.  It was a novel idea at the time, and very feel-good considering the realities of life in the later Roman Empire.  There's never been any evidence however that this new myth was true.  And there's always been a great deal on the side of falsification.

          In other words, to me, the concept of self-preservation is innate... not inert.

          I'm fightin' to my last freakin' breath.

            Societies collapse when they are unable to meet people's basic needs.

            People don't like starving, much less choking to death.  

            Well, this isn't at all surprising. Nestle has been pure evil for decades in the developing world.

            People should boycott them until they go utterly bankrupt.

            The whole decade needs an asterisk.
