Crash Course

Voltron says: I recommend watching "the Crash Course" videos by Chris Martenson. It's pretty long but it's split into 20 MTV-generation-attention-span sized clips. For by bros in Iraq: there is a transcript of each section if you can't watch the videos.

It explains how exponential money, a bursting credit bubble, demographics, a failure to save, peak oil, shrinking resources and accelerating biosystem loss are all reaching exponential limits in the near future.

I'd recommend starting with chapters 15, 16, 17a and 18. If you've seen the "Money as Debt" videos, you won't miss much if you skip chapters 3-12.
