Fragility and Collapse: Slowly at first, then all at once



“This is all doom and gloom, isn’t it?” To which I say, “For you, maybe, if you don’t have any other plan except to wait for everything to somehow magically fix itself.”

You see, building something that works takes a lot of time and effort. Things stop working in a hurry, but making a replacement takes time, resources, and, most importantly, stability. This can only be done ahead of time, and doing so takes practice (by which I mean learning from one’s own plentiful mistakes).

The comments are worth reading as well.

And it's not just carelessness and irresponsibility and reckless abandon driving this, though there's plenty of that.
There's evil at work here.
