    Default How Western Society could collapse: A BBC Perspective

    Most Avalonians are aware of the articles findings.....I love a little bit to add to my own confirmation bias

    Under this scenario, elites push society toward instability and eventual collapse by hoarding huge quantities of wealth and resources, and leaving little or none for commoners who vastly outnumber them yet support them with labour. Eventually, the working population crashes because the portion of wealth allocated to them is not enough, followed by collapse of the elites due to the absence of labour.

    We are current spectators to it in real time. At least they are doing their best to destabilize everything.
