The main change in today's world is the fact the government have printed
5-10 times the paper money (and credits) they had before.

In this way they have redistributed an HUGE part of wealth from common
people (usually middle class) to themselves and their allies and cronies.

Then we have a lot of chatting about how things are worser now than then
and how fuel is too costly, it will not last enough, and so on.

Wake up!!! There is a hole in you tank and the government is siphoning
you wealth away. Before you worry about peak oil or others long term
problems, try to stop the government from steal you blind and without
shoes. Then you can worry about the winter coming.
