Whenever our rulers cannot effectively extend their "protection" over us, and maintain their monopoly on the legitimate use of force, then the S has hit the F.

Hurricanes, earthquakes, fukushima syndrome, etc. can cause it. So can wars, financial panics, etc.

it can last for a few weeks, or for the Dark Ages.



this one made me think.
in my mind it's always some government created nightmare.
i was in mexico city during the big one and that was a bad scenario.

Oil is literally the blood of our society- everything from food, to energy, to beer, to video games and the internet is reliant on oil.

Once oil hits a certain price (I'm not sure what price will be the tipping point), then the economy will literally go into free-fall. Seeing as the economy is still only in the early stages of recovery after the recession (although it is arguable it is not in recovery at all), expensive gas could be the nail in the coffin that the last recession built.

So, I'll say $6-$8 a gallon gas would be the equivalent of TSHTF.

Of course, their is always nuclear war- all it takes is one psychopath...
