You really think that Social disintegration is impossible? What about the Roman Empire?
They spread over 1/5th of the world, and had poor communication, things are much much different today
Or the Mayans? They fell because their social order completely collapsed!
We have absolutely zero idea what happened to them, my best guess would be the incans or olmecs killed them off
It's already happening here in the US! The increasing gap between Rich and Poor with not enough middle-class to fill the void will cause a political rift (rather it already has)
That's not evidence of complete social collapse, and there still aren't enough people in crippling poverty for it to mean anything
But I'm ranting now, I'll leave this thread now if that makes you happy.
