RE: History Predicts “Buckle Up”

I don’t know how an entire  civilization can become “incoherent,” though I’m sure there are examples.From robjh22

This comment has been rattling around in my head for a few days now.

I’m sure there are sociologists and political scientists who have made a study of this and could give us a number, but my guess is that it takes a surprisingly small percentage of a population to foster a critical mass of “incoherence”.

The entire civilization doesn’t become incoherent. But if enough of it does, the whole thing falls down.

This is a big part of why I tend toward the way of thinking that I have. My sense is that civilization is far more fragile than we realize.
