Peak Oil Anarchy

Peak Oil is indisputable, inevitable and -- probably -- imminent. As the Cheap Oil era ends & oil supplies grow ever more scarce, our consumerist, earth-eating economy will go into convulsions & industrial civilization will teeter on the brink of collapse. Best be prepared! Peak Oil could herald a Golden Age of Anarchy. In Leviathan's ashes, we could create new decentralized communities of mutual aid, solidarity against oppression, & egalitarian harmony. May this be a map to the terrain ahead!

Report from 2nd US Conference on Peak Oil & Community Solutions

Yellow Springs, Ohio -- More than 350 people from 39 states and five countries gathered here in late September with about 100 area residents to learn how to prepare at the local level for the coming steep decline in global oil production. This permanent decline will follow an all-time high in production, known as peak oil, which will require developing local and sustainable economies, local food systems, and "eco-village" communities, participants at the Second U.S. Conference on Peak Oil and Community Solutions were told.

    Have you seen that Agraria thing that Community Solutions is proposing? It's very prescriptive. They have rules for everything. For instance: Houses will be no more than this meany square feet and the wall height will be no more than 8 feet. Thats' crazy shit. If they just built houses out of mud they could have whatever sort of house they want.

    They also think they are going to provide a model for other people to follow. Whats' the point? there are already heaps of evovillages out there and the thing is they are all different because they reflect the different communites that live there. A standard model is doomed to failure.

    I was excited when I heard about a group focusing on community solutions but I've been really dissapointed - they're using civilisation's worst feature (control) to try to create a new future and it will just reboundin their faces
