I hate to say it but it doesn’t matter arguing the if a collapse will happen.
Its what kind of collapse.
The WROL collapse that some fantasize about, is unlikely with all of todays safeguards.
The long slow grind shown by zimbabwe and South Africa is the most likely, in part because of those same safeguards. Those same naysayers will keep the system going longer than one might expect, because that’s how life is done.
However much will depend upon where you are, people in Greece will experience a different collapse than a person in northern Idaho. Same for a person in Chicago versus Wyoming.
Look at England.
Compare London and Liverpool to some of the northern areas.
While the rural residents may notice a mass of shortages of goods and such, the same risks are not there.
However note I didn’t say there are no threats, just different ones.
