Lest you thought I was kidding, or exaggerating, about indoor plumbing being one of the aspects of Western Civilization that is at risk in post-American America, I received this email from a reader yesterday.
Looks like you were right re: “As I have repeatedly warned you, we’ll be fortunate if we emerge on the other end of this civilizational catastrophe with interior plumbing.”
Gov Tate Reeves on the Jackson Mississippi water crisis this past Monday:
“Jackson’s main water treatment facility has been operating with zero redundancies,” and that damage to the main pump had left the city operating far weaker backup pumps….The city cannot produce enough water to fight fires, to reliably flush toilets, and to meet other critical needs”
Well that was quick.
One of the reasons I don’t provide time estimates anymore is because it has proved nearly impossible to correctly nail down the timing of future events. Even the 2008 crisis took six years to show up after I first saw it on the horizon. But my predictions are usually quite reliable with regards to the nature of the events themselves, because historical trends are reliable and the foundational assumptions of those who changed the demographic makeup of the United States were absolutely and utterly wrong.
The end result of diversity, inclusion, and equality is inevitably going to be everyone except the well-connected elite living in third world squalor, because diversity is totally incapable of maintaining, let alone constructing, functional systems with running water. See: every third world country.
If you import third world populations, your society will eventually become third world, because infrastructure collapse. This is the process henceforth to be known as dyscivilizationation.
