Sorry for the lack of activity - very busy at the moment.
While I get the day job attended to, here are some articles/thought pieces that, in my opinion, will play well (socionomically speaking) assuming we plunge into a deeply negative mood phase:
- John Robb: Building Resilient Communities From Scratch
- Paul Saffo (h/t John Robb): The Bay Area needs to act like a city-state
- Terrence Aym: Doomsday: How BP Gulf disaster may have triggered a 'world-killing' event
The Aym article is there because it is full-blown juicy doomer porn - and quite possibly a marker for the kind of mindset we will be dealing with if/as mood deteriorates. Watch how people interpret events, read the stories they tell themselves about the events and how that reflects on their mood at the time and contemplate the kinds of political and social reactions we'll see in response.
