    Some people have to hit the very bottom really really hard, before they realize what is going on. The whole country has been on a consumerist binge for 20 years now. All too drunk with bread and circuses.  And war.

    My aging hippie optimism is almost gone.  Here we are in this kind of hellish orange cyber-limbo waiting for the collapse.  Wondering what's going to happen next.

      Greed and selfishness replaces patriotism.
      It's every man for himself to grab as much as you can, throw the women and children under the bus first.
      Moral rot from within.
