Resources are always the reason for conflicts. Stating that you hate everyone is true since it is genetic to survive. You do I'm sure love your
family and I'm sure you love me and SLAYER69 but starving people will die unless they eat. What is happening to all of us is that as the population
grows resource competition grows exponentially.
Fossil fuel is not the only resource. Water, land, food, women or anything that a given group cannot live without are the primary resources. Here in
the year 2009 if the oil stops flowing the bodies will hit the floor and hard. The main reason the global population has been able to climb so high is
because of the fossil fuel.
Many times I say OIL but I mean fossil fuel. Everything we have relies on the stuff especially our FOOD. Mankind has essentially reached the point
that extinction is a very real possibility. This is due to the simultaneous rise in DEMAND (population growth) and the active resource DEPLETION.
As the depression gets more severe the government will provide the final option of a draft. You will harness that hate and contempt you feel and take
your chances in whatever battlefield they stick you in. The Great Depression starved 7 million Americans and this one will make that look like a
little scrape on your knee.
This picture suggests the fate of humanity and the end of the industrial age...
