Anywhere But Here Is Better

Dave - this is an action replay of all end-of-empire cliff falls. To take just the Roman and British Empires as examples, they "ruled the known world" for generations and then collapsed into themselves because of natural entropy.

The US Empire has risen and fallen rather more swiftly, but it's following the pattern. And people are reacting all the wrong way. As you've said, they don't want to deal with changing their behaviour, they just flail their arms and do more damage.

Bam bam we're all dead.
