In the last show I talked about Stages 1 and 2 of The Collapse as I see it unfolding.
In this show, I cover Stages 3 and 4, which I am calling "SuperCollapse" and "Mad Max in America" respectively.
Stage 3, assuming we don't bounce back during Stage 2, will be a harsh, hungry and dangerous world, but it will not lack order. I doubt the order will be provided by a powerful, tyrannical central government. But there will be plenty of tyranny supplied by plenty of groups that are powerful enough to gain local and regional control.
Stage 4 is something none of us want to live through, unless you are some kind of crazed fan of Mad Max with a serious death wish. I don't think we will get to Stage 4, but we could, and it will be Hobbes' "state of nature" on steroids.
I also manage to fit in a diatribe on Obamacare and what it means for it to be "Constitutional" in this episode.
Many thanks to those of you who listen to my show--it is rewarding and humbling to learn that the 100 shows I've recorded since March of 2010 have been helpful, comforting, or even entertaining to so many people, and it inspires me to do 100 more!
