Fact...In the event of a "Total Collapse" of global society and descent in Anarchy, a Nuclear exchange would occur within Hours at the very most and most likely minutes, as it should be assumed that the people who want a breakdown have already targeted the places to be reduced to flaming heaps.
So, for all those who want society to collapse start with yourself...I understand that Freight trains can be a quick and easy way to achieve your objectives.

It's astounding really how many people have came forward to say that a total collapse would be welcome.
Your entire argument stinks of hypocrisy. Your entire premise is based on the world as you see it. You cannot see further than the USA or UK.
Maybe it’s curiosity that is making people feel this way, a subconscious will to see what the world would look like with no infrastructure. If that is the case then I put this to you, and by you I mean the posters of this thread, to take a step back from the world that you live, and by that I mean the western world. Forget about the government, and the houses that you live in, the internet and personal belongings, your cars and other modes of transport, running water and electricity, and think about what your life would be like living in a country that currently has no infrastructure, countries such as Uganda, Sudan and Darfur. Because what you are hoping for is exactly that. If the economy crashes and the governments are overthrown it is in all likelihood that chaos would ensue.
We are thought of as the most intelligent species on this planet. But as a mass populous we act like parasites and with no laws to govern us and no rules to follow we would in all likelihood kill each other. So once again I put it to those of you who think that what you are talking about is nothing more than a hypothetical situation... Go and book a ticket to Darfur or Uganda and find out for yourself what life without a proper infrastructure would look like.

Yes, i hope everything collapses.
Why? because i deeply believe that wil force us into a new way of living.
more peacefully i believe. Secret technologies have to be made public, because no man can pay his electric and gas bills anymore.
And last, but not least, it is a lesson. A lesson that tells us we need to think different. It wil makes us see that we must not focus on money and buying sports cars and high tech stuff while others suffer because they dont have food.
We must build some kind of new economy, in which you work for your community and just get everything you need or want instead of money. In fact, we must say goodbye to money. Because money gives people power and makes peeple greedy. Money makes people evil.

I know it's been said on this topic before, but I would like to restate.
Most of the people wishing for this coming big collapse have the delusional idea that they are going to be the "star" of their own Post-WW3 movie. They seem themselves as some kind of Mad Max/Rambo/Ultimate Survivalist. They rest easy in their illusion saying "I've got a BOB and guns, so I know I'm good."
Get real. You will be messing your pants just like the rest of us. You are going to be an extra in this movie.

I can't wait for the system to collapse so we can 'build a new world in the shell of the old.'
Exciting times we live in...
