The phrase “collapse aware” has entered my vocabulary. It will probably enter yours before too long also. 🙂 And that’s okay! Everything’s okay. But okay doesn’t equal easy.
We’ve tried this way of life, this method of structuring our societies, our nations, our time, our energy, our relationships, our land, our property; for a long time, long enough, long enough to know that it isn’t working. But we aren’t stopping it now are we. 🙂 No. We are continuing down the path of ruin despite the ceiling falling down on our heads the entire time.
Why are we persisting in a failed effort? That isn’t necessarily important to know right now. I suggest that what we should do is recognize our situation , create a new plan, and then execute the plan.
