Why societies fail

Came across this fascinating article in The Atlantic about a UConn professor who has a model that can predict the decline and ascendance of a society.

Seems like something that might be useful in the hellscape that has been and continues to be the year of our Lord, 2020.

You can read the article for yourself, but the news isn’t good if you’re an American or live in America. I swear I try not to project my decision-making onto the world around me, but it’s very hard when you’ve sold and are selling literally all your belongings and pushing off to another country.

Still, it’s hard not to feel a little validated that I’m not just crazy and seeing trends that aren’t really there. Yes, it’s bad out there and yes, it’s probably going to get worse. As always, I hope I’m wrong, but just in case I’m not…it’s still not too early to sell high and get while the getting is good.
