From John Robb
Given that we are moving into a period of extreme system shocks, this isn’t good news. There’s no income buffer to allow an easy transition to resilient communities. It’s looking it will end up being a bare bones bootstrap against a backdrop of rapidly expanding GG [Global Guerrilla] action.
This also means more populist movements and uprisings (both left wing and right wing), attempts to find scapegoats for the problems (immigrants), and the unsettling realization that – unless we act now and fast – our increasingly hollowed-out government will be unable to help much.
