This is inevitable.
When your lives rely on modern conveniences that rely on man made power....
Its almost certain that things will fail.
It's just a matter of time.
Which is sort of like using the Scientific Method.
Because, in these days, man thinks he is invincible.
Until this happens.
Then it smacks society so hard, that chaos erupts.
Because instead of learning to live without power, we find out that we can't live without it.
Which is a problem, in that no one knows what would happen, should we lose the "grid".
Hospitals will shut down, banks will freeze, services will fail.
People will panic because they spent their lives learning how to spend money.
They wasted their entire existance (and brainpower) learning how ignorance is bliss.
Instead of learning how to keep warm.
Or how to be self-sufficient.
That's just life as an ignorant species.
And it gets worse with time.
(excluding most ATS members
No one can stop these things from occurring.
But people can prepare and learn what to do. (it's really not that hard)
But they don't.
We are too busy working everyday to achieve "success".
In a materialistic, ignorant world.
When humans ignore warning signs, or even history for that matter...
Bad things happen.
Take a good look around yourselves....
How many people do you think would survive a total grid failure?
Especially in the northeast with no heat/power?
There will be alot of confused people.
They will wonder why they spent their lives worried about Facebook...
Instead of learning how to make fire from anything in their surroundings.
Just to keep warm.
