Just curious how you guys think society may collapse? I've always been a fan of post-apocalyptic stories. While we don't know when the SHTF, we do it will occur at some point. It always does. It just may not be in our lifetime. I'm talking a complete collapse of law and order. Every man for himself type of situation. No hope or relief on the horizon.

I think the most likely scenarios are:

1) Pandemic. With cities over crowding, I think nature creates these nasty little bugs to relieve population pressures. I can see some black plague type of event occurring where people are dying in droves and their is no cure in sight.

2) Asteroid/Meteor. Sooner or later, a big rock is going to hit us again and cause a ton of damage.

3) Volcano. Yellowstone going boom destroying a chunk of the US and creating a winter that lasts for decades?

The ticklish will be tickled to death. Should be enough to cull the masses.

Confidence in government is collapsing, that will reach a peak and cause the collapse of society as we know it. US/UK/etc will no longer be #1, all the money is going to move east.

War, its begun, fighting as we speak
Nukes in the middle east, oil shortages, food shortages due to transport issues, street violence, water shortage.
Violence on a biblical scale, WW3, Europe is in a mess

everyone will end up destroying each other and themselves ~ it's happening right now, but once war/pandemic/government/bankers go into hiding the death and destruction with quickly accelerate.

Humans are cruel, selfish, and catastrophic to all life around them. It's only a matter of time.

Society could just fall apart and mob mindset will cause chaos and killing everywhere. We could wind up fighting amongst each other and this will end up with hundreds of millions dead.

When TPTB decide to press "the red button of total destruction" right before they hop into their spaceships leaving the rest of us peasants to fight for what resources are left on this planet.

Is the Survival Forum taboo to post survival topics in, now?

Your 3 examples seem to be among the most plausible.
Carrington-type event; Nuclear accidents chain of events; killer pandas; pole-shift; large-scale war; etc.

But we'll know it's coming, when the elite start to disappear.
5: no biggie; 10: hmmmm; 100+: head for the hills!

I expect a financial meltdown that they will distract us from in the most efficient manner: We get an EMP blown about 20 miles about the United States, we're back to partying like it's 1899. Mass deaths from lack of medicine, lack of power, lack of modern medical equipment, lack of pharmaceuticals which cannot be either manufactured or shipped, and the scale of it will be insane because people don't know how to live without everything at their fingertips. Cars sitting dead? Planes that were aloft lose all power. There's a lot to it. Everything that runs on electricity or batteries will be fried by the EMP. NOTHING will work. No water, no power, no cell phones, no vehicles running......our country will be thrown into inertia and panic on a mass scale.

Might as well throw in a limited-scale nuclear engagement by Lil Kim getting angry and turning South Korea into a sheet of glass, and then it spreads from there. The middle east will have its Armageddon.

Just to add spice to this doom porn stew, throw in a deadly earthquake or the Yellowstone caldera blowing sky high.

But before this buffet of the worst that humanity has to offer, why not have ugly civil wars based on stupid ideas and criminal government activity that we take out on each other instead of addressing the problem where it began. A vicious pandemic would be the icing on the crap cake.

I think a bullet to the presidents brain would start something that would eventually lead to total chaos.

There's a recent change in the game. Collapse was plan A, but now we're gonna have world wide "cold-weather" instead. A more humane variant indeed, however genocide will happen, just it's gonna be on intellectual level. They decided that's gonna be too much expensive with all that corpse disposal and mass graves. Instead, fairy tales and drugs is on the plan... That's why America has a Clown for a president and Russia a Con-artist, because... they ain't meaning war and collapses. Just NK could try that, but even they won't, before asking big papa USA/UK intelligence for permission to play.

I know the quickest and easiest way, NO DOUBT!
I say we are always less than one month away from total chaos. Onset within 1 week.
Ready....
You shut down all pharmacies and stop production of meds. Think about that for a moment.
1. The opiate epidemic that speak of more and more. Individuals dependent will do anything to get them. When withdrawal starts, you have yourself a zombie apacolpse.
2. Life dependent drugs. If your wife, parents, or child die without it, then it's guns blazing.
3. Anti Psychotics and anti depressants. Unbalanced people off their meds dealing with 1 & 2

Facebook becomes hacked into oblivion. Experiencing social media's idenfinate mass outage, the Android and iPhone addicts will implode just from that.

More seriously it's the partisan division has everyone so wrapped up, that they will not fight against the reign of the two party system. They worship it now as a false savior, will abide by it until only so much, until they are affected personally. Not sure where it will go from there.

Meanwhile being so wrapped up in what they perceive as social causes, the controllers will further take from everyone including them. An economic collapse can happen at anytime if it is chosen to happen.

Shut down the power grid.

That'll cause chaos in 48 hours.

Wait a week and there will be cannibalism.

A month?

Bad times.
