This book is stunning. Profound understanding of civilisation and its unsustainable course. The Final Empire: The Collapse of Empire and the Seed of the Future - by William Kötke. Available to read online at: http://www.rainbowbody.net/Finalempire/ "The crisis of the planet Earth is so profound that all of our lives will be caught up in it. Our lives will change because of it. Our lives will change because of the apocalyptic events happening now and the even greater dislocations to come. We cannot avoid these great trends of history but we can exercise awareness and skill in action in dealing with them. The tumult will be environmental and it will also be within the social body of civilization."
