Funny thing: earlier today my wife and I were discussing the decaying state of things.
All over the 'first world', rail and road networks, bridges and ferries, are crumbling into rubble, for lack of maintenance. No profit in maintenance is there? Companies buy these vital assets, and run them into the ground while extracting as much profit as they can in the process. Then they do a runner and/or liquidate.
Gas lines, water mains, sewers, electrical grids, disappearing manhole covers and lead roofing, even bronze war memorials, stripped and stolen by the kind of people that steal such things. Along with vandalism for the sake of it.
I may end up living in an igloo, part-time, and under a tree for the rest.
Fish oil for lamps, if there are any fish left.
