One point in the genius column for the PoMoCon

PostModern Conservative writes:
I would very sternly caution certain paleos that the economic collapse of Western civilization will not lead to increased parental responsibility and the restoration of traditional lines of social authority. It will result in gasoline riots, rampant idleness, a colossal explosion in drug use, more murders, and an uptick in religious heresy. Rod is right that the health benefits of the modern scientific order may in the end outweigh the health defects of modern political order -- you can run away from the latter without swearing off the former -- but the real issue is that even if that weren't true economic collapse would still not solve anything, or even provide the relief of lancing the boil.

Thank goodness I am not the only one who thinks that the whole collapse of civilization will be our salvation thing is completely nuts.
