Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Back at the end of the 1960s issues surrounding Peak Oil were part of my school education.  Plainly my teachers thought my generation would be undertaking the job of thinking about what to do about it.  

But the big guys--and the big money guys--thought otherwise.  

We didn't, and here we are.  

The collapse of civilization no longer worries me (well, accept for those nagging concerns about physical survival).  When I read on what is being developed in Informaton Technology for surveillance and human control, it starts to look like collapse is far and away our best hope.  

The Fates are kind.
