Who’s To Blame For The Coming Collapse?

The short answer is, we all are. We have all been willingly led down the path of progress and unending growth. We continue to push the limits of our environments ability to provide for our needs.

Many people like to blame poor governance, lazy people, or even go so far as to blame a conspiracy of central bankers and the elite. But reality would suggest something much different and more fundamental.

Energy. Plain and simple. It has been shown through studies that our ability to grow and expand is directly proportional to the availability of affordable energy.

It is understandable that people want to blame politicians, governments or elite cabals for the worlds problems. They want to place the blame anywhere but upon themselves and the lifestyles of never ending consumption and debt that they have chosen.

Now why we are not being encouraged to live more simply and sustainably can easily be blamed on the powers that be as they will milk us for every consumer dollar they can while the dollar (or money in general) still has value. But they are not forcing us to buy their products or to take on debt. That is our choice.

Occam’s razor states that: ‘All things being equal, the simplest explanation is usually the correct one.’ Energy IS the simple explanation and it makes perfect sense.

So if you are looking for someone to blame, look no further than the closest mirror. Ask yourself how much you can provide for yourself rather than depending on the energy hungry systems of transportation, manufacture and global exchange for your needs.

Thanks for reading and for joining me on the journey of life.
