    •  yep (6+ / 0-)

      I don't know too many people who would trade canned goods, rifles, ammunition, solar panels, copper wire, or fertile sex partners for slips of green paper. Well, unless you have a lot of that paper and it can be burned for warmth.

      Which fell through a wormhole:

      Those who forgot history were the first to have to repeat it when the revolution came.*

      *the 2032 uprising of history professors, stage producers, and student testing companies leading to a boom in the production of historical theater by those who failed standardized history exams.

      Sadly it was silent on the subject of climate change beyond "yep we blew that."

      Yep when it comes to death by natural disaster you can run but you can't hide forever.

      On the other hand maybe that's why the proliferation of commercial space passengership production/testing for the rich masses has been sped up.  Pathetic assholes not even able to face death graciously.

        What do you think the starving masses are going to do to the people who caused it?  

        No walls will protect them from that, either.

        I'm not "advocating," I'm predicting.

    •  'Worst Case' Planners Rarely Follow "Worst" to its (0+ / 0-)

      realistic conclusions, especially when they are both 'ameteurs' and delusional about the continued power of money in a 'worst case' world.

      Someone in a very expensive suit is at the front door and says he wants to foreclose on our democracy. Where should I tell him he can put his robosigning pen?
