Lurking in the Woodwork, by James Howard Kunstler

Human direction is far beyond the capacity of megalomaniacs to direct it. From James Howard Kunstler at kunstler.com:

As is always the case, history the trickster is taking us to a place we didn’t expect to go.

These dynamic forces are not necessarily hidden; many are working in plain sight and you can make pretty good guesses as to what’s up with them. But they control the gameboard, not Klaus and his legion of economist-engineer nerds.

One of the forces at work is our old friend from physics class: entropy, the god of disorder, randomness, and uncertainty.

It’s gotten so bad that we don’t even get the news about the crumbling because The News is one of the institutions that has fallen apart.
