am very much worried that we will see collapses in the next decades, based
combinations of incompetence, negative human urges, crime and most of all
insufficient easy to use energy. It may stabilize, but not before mass
and unrest. Lets call that "brasilification" - teeming cities composed of
living in favellas, dependent on centralized, populist food distribution.
doing little useless oddjobs to keep society patched together, everything
saturated with despair, drugs, crime. Soweto, Gaza, Rio and the forbidden
city, all rolled into one endless fungal growth of human uselessness, places
where every morning a truck drives by to collect the gang warfare dead from
the streets

I guess the cyberpunk authors like William Gibson had it right...
