C.F.I.T. is Controlled Flight Into Terrain, the pilot just flies the plane and the unsuspecting passengers into the ground, it happens surprisingly often. C.F.I.T. is a leading cause of airplane accidents involving loss of life, causing over 9,000 deaths since the beginning of the commercial age of air travel.
To understand our economy one must understand CFIT
Usually the pilot and co pilot are disagreeing on things, the second last thing the pilot does is turn off that annoying “Pull up! Terrain! Pull up now!” warning. Thinking the instruments, the warnings, the science of it all is wrong. Thinking that young punk of a co-pilot should keep his mouth shut and do what he is told, is the last mistake made.
Momentum and the permanence of the ground relative to a tube of aluminum foil traveling at 600km/hr is a powerful combination.
While you are nibbling on a little bags of candied walnuts fate is altering your future. Fate does not really care about your travel plans, personal truths or how many followers you have. You were put on this planet to shape our destiny for the better, that is all, you blew it, now Brace for impact!
And so it is, how can you as an individual “Brace for impact”? What does it mean in terms of population growth and collapse. Wikipedia lists over a dozen major civilizations and even more empires that vanished for one reason or another. Often due to wars, the large variety of natural disasters or the inevitable environmental destruction that occurs when many people live on a finite planet fighting wars and having babies.
So what can you do:
1: As suggested by ~Wendell Berry~ in “Manifesto: The Mad Farmer Liberation Front”
Expect the end of the world. Laugh.
Laughter is immeasurable. Be joyful
though you have considered all the facts.
2: Practice resilience, be independent of the corporate food system, have basic food on hand, not toilet paper. You will need flour, oats, cooking oil, enough to keep body and soul together until people stop eating each other.
3: Most importantly develop a community for self support, you don’t need guns you need locally produced flour, oats, and cooking oil. You will also need vitamin C to prevent scurvy, you can get that in cantaloupe, black currants, yellow peppers and kale. A garden may be in order.
4: Be aware, today in 2022 India just stopped exporting sugar, Indonesia just stopped exporting palm oil, beef prices are double what they were 5 years ago, the list goes on. We are in the crisis now. Today 10% of the world is going hungry. 811 million people are going hungry. World hunger is on the rise from 2019 to 2020, the number of undernourished people grew by as many as 161 million, a crisis driven largely by conflict, climate change, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Its not a question of if our sytem will break down, we only need to study the parallels between the great famine in China 1957 to 1961 and our current lifestyle to see how close we are to the brink. The good news is that we are pretty smart as a species and hopefully we can dodge the bullet.

CLIMATE CHANGE POPULATION GROWTH AND FAMINE
John Scales Avery November 20, 2017
“Putting an end to the population explosion will not of itself save the ecosphere, but not ending it will add greatly to the dangers the planet faces. The environment can sustain a quality of life for just so many people.” Michael Parenti, Blackshirts and Reds: Rational Fascism and the Overthrow of Communism. (1997), p. 155
