You pooh-pooh "what seem to [you] overblown predictions about impending social collapse" by Kunstler and I do have a little sympathy for your position (I tend to think it's going to be a slow decline). But at the same time, I remember the day Katrina hit New Orleans. There was virtual hysteria in my office because gas prices went up something like 50 or 75 cents a gallon in that one day. People were literally skipping out of meetings to go fill up their tank. There was non stop chatter about gas prices and rumors of gas prices, how they couldn't afford to get gas now, etc. I've never seen anything like it (even 9/11 was more like shock than panic). I guess to me, that day hints at what it might be like if Kunstler's right.

Having a simple mind, I think there will be no collapse unless the next 9/11 is with nukes (or some biological weapon equivalent).
