I’m not discounting what they said, I’m appling their own words to the ideas they put forward. I’m certain what would happen in a US financial collapse is not the same as what will happen after a failure of the grid. The differential in proportional damages to infrastructures is obvious. Zero capacity in every measurable aspect of productivity is quite different then a reduced capacity with mechanical/electrical systems still operable. I have no doubt they would consider “me a know it all” but in truth I don’t give a shlt what they would think about me. I have 60 years of life experiences and observations to base my opinions and decisions.
