For all who think that the GFC of 2008 is something that has passed, is in the past, is over and done with, things are now looking up again, and we can soon look forward to everything getting back to normal, here is a quote from an article I just read,
“The economy isn’t coming back. On the contrary, it’s a patched-together mess on its way to the crapper.”
The article also revealed this related cartoon:
The serious article this is referenced from is titled The Economy Isn’t Coming Back and it can be found posted on Resilience.org. It is penned by none other than Mr Chumpy, aka Eric Krasnauskas, author of the Science Pope website. It takes a refreshing view of the seriousness of the situation confronting our global society today and is well worth reading.
So who is Mr Chumpy? A scientist? Climate Change expert? Economist? Well known author or leader in the Peak Oil field? None of these, but nonetheless deserving of being listened to for his down to earth rendition of the way things are.
He is actually an ex game designer. I personally find his arguments uncluttered by the obtuse logic, arguments and other paraphernalia often associated with the discourse of experts, yet containing the ring of truth and veracity of relative youth.
Take a look. You might agree. And it might be just what’s needed to change your world-view.
