A Most Powerful Mechanism of Collapse:
The Loss of Will to Live

Pawning the Last Valuable Possession

The will to live is the ultimate human phenomenon maintained by a fine balance between the four interrelated elements:

  • Health of the environment
  • Physical and mental well being
  • Nature’s supplies and services
  • Societal vigor

the-will-to-live

As the demands on nature multiply,  the environment progressively deteriorates and civilization becomes increasingly dysfunctional, the balance exponentially declines and the future of human species, entirely by their own making, becomes rapidly bleaker.

What future is there for a dying addict who has pawned his last item of value, craving  only for one last strong fix?
