It should be no mystery to you that we are in a lot of trouble. Earth-shaking, civilization destroying, trouble. And, the news this week – and over the past few weeks – has emphasized this like we have rarely seen. Conventional oil production has been declining since 2005. Emerging market countries are experiencing financial collapse. We are entering a Grand Solar Minimum that might be worse than the one that launched the Dark Ages. The war against free speech has begun in earnest. Societies in the developed world teeter on the brink of open strife.
We are staring into the Abyss, and I just don’t like the view.
