back and waits for us to beg to be saved.
As long as your're describing life in your own nation, I won't disagree (Americans have shown a remarkable tendency to turn against each other in
times where they should do the exact opposite). However, it seems you've watched a little too many movies/evening news.
It'll take only little communication for most people to realize that, just because money is gone, resources aren't gone as well. If people are
seriously too stupid to realize that money isn't actual wealth, but just a measurement for it, then they deserve to starve to death. However, where I
live, I have no doubt that people will figure out a way to deal with the situation.
Now, If I would live in a nation where people would be left alone on their roof-tops for days/weeks (how long was it?) after a hurricane, and an
uncountable number of people stashing guns in their basement in expectation of some kind of apocalypse, where they can live out their perverted
lone-gunslinger-survivor fantasies, I'd probably think differently as well.
To make the most important part of my post clear. Money is worthless, it's merely supported by an idea. Just because you lost your measuring tape
doesn't mean that all the stuff you wanted to measure is gone as well. Resources are still abundant. Nature doesn't give a flying # about our economy.
Plants will continue to grow, animals will continue to eat and bang each other (and therefore continue to repopulate themselves). Everything goes on
normally. If some cellar-dwelling apocalypse prophets think otherwise, let them.
