Except that plenty of people eat those foods in the past as their basic nutrition, and still got very far. Democracy and freedom are not fed to us. Quite oppositely, we are told they are bad things in these days and that we should all let the government take freedom temporarily. In essence, the complete opposite.

Sadly, I was not home last night to watch the program, so I recorded it and I just finished watching it. I must say that while I did learn a few facts, I also realized how politically biased national television has become. When are we going to see a program about how Global Warming is a myth? When are we going to see a program about how global cooling is going to happen? The answer to these questions is, probably never. The government is paying tv stations to run eco-ads and programs in support of their policies. Anyhow, let me say that while I do think that recycling and using energy efficient materials are good, I do not believe in brainwashing people into the government policies.

I watched it too. One thing I noticed was how society-centric the disasters were. There was no mention of big-time geological disasters, just a population-depleting disease. I know major earthquakes or super-volcanic eruptions aren't exactly an immediate certainty, since Yellowstone could erupt 300,000 years from now for all we know. At the same time, a super-disease is also not a certainty.
I think it would have been a lot greater if the show hadn't focused so much on an oil crisis and presented a TRUE worst-case scenario, one that wasn't quite so selfish and centered only on poor little mankind's self-inflicted suffering. And a single nasty hurricane over Miami doesn't count!
