The Great Collapse...

Jared Diamond and the ideas from his two books, "Guns, Germs, and Steel," and his most recent, "Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed," are the talk of the town in the world of the social sciences. Alternet has an interview with Diamond that touches on his thoughts and ideas about the collapse of large societies of the past and the possible collapse of the current way of life on the planet. The interview concludes in an optimistic tone, but other readers seem less convinced that the world will find a way out of the mounting problems that must be dealt with at some point - hopefully sooner than later.
