Hunger in America

Perched on the edge of a cliff - we're habituated to maintaining the American Way of Life, regardless of the costs (which are as yet insufficiently perceptible here on the liminal fringe of consensus reality).

It is difficult for people to accept that the world as they've always known it is ending. We've recovered from recessions before, so we'll recover from this recession. That's the argument we hear in the commons - and it is, thanks to voodoo economics and ignorance of peak oil - essentially, irrefutable.

We have recovered from recessions before, but this is no ordinary recession. We've even recovered from a great economic depression before, but this is by no means an ordinary economic depression.

The end of the American way of life will come unexpectedly......,
