I was looking up this movie on netflix, and came across a National Geographic documentary, its called National Geographic : Collapse, I would recommend this, although its a hypothetical theory, it discusses the mistakes our society has made that might seal our fate as a national, much like the Romans, Greeks, and British Empire made

Do you mean Michael C. Ruppert, author of "Crossing the Rubicon, --the decline of the American Empire at the end of the age of oil??

He states oil production and discovery peaked years ago---noone wanted to tell the investers and stockholders:eek:oops:!! ..so they paid the companies to lie and lie and lie.:ignore:

In an avant-garde soliloquy, investigative journalist Michael Ruppert details his unnerving theories about the inexorable link between energy depletion and the collapse of the economic system that supports the entire industrial world. Helmed by filmmaker Chris Smith (American Movie), Ruppert's monologue explains how the lies and political propaganda fed to Americans by big business will eventually lead to human extinction.

yep, same Michael Ruppert.

I just finished watching the movie COLLAPSE on NetFlix for the 2nd time.
#1 if he don't lay off the smokes and try to get his health up to par, he won't have to worry about being around for the collapse.

#2 he didn 't mention this but during the great depression, we still had the family farms and almost everyone had a garden in their back yd til after WW2.

#3 his parents both had good government jobs and probably retired with good pensions, he also had good jobs but in the last half on the movie, he said that he's getting the land where he rents ready to grow food, it just got my attention that he still rents, personally, I wouldn't want to be renting during a collapse, you would always have a land lord standing over you.

I looked all over the internet. Netflix doesn't have it, itunes won't let it download, and Amazon has it for 'download rent' but only in the US. My local movie store doesn't have it but my wife works for the local library so is going to try to get it shipped to our location from another one. Hope that works...

I found this narrative about 'collapse' on Netflix..

In an avant-garde soliloquy, investigative journalist Michael Ruppert details his unnerving theories about the inexorable link between energy depletion and the collapse of the economic system that supports the entire industrial world. Helmed by filmmaker Chris Smith (American Movie), Ruppert's monologue explains how the lies and political propaganda fed to Americans by big business will eventually lead to human extinction.

I picked up and watched the NG Collapse today. It wasn't bad, but I was hoping for for more of a World Built by Hand sort of flick. Since I got it from the library, the price was right so I can't complain :) It's not going to open any eyes here. I hope the other Collapse is better.

I streamed it on Netflix last weekend along with A Crude Awakening: The Oil Crash A Crude Awakening / The Oil Crash. A Crude Awakening had many experts pointing out the same thing. I think it was a better flick because of all the different perspectives. The future looks grim.

HI all, I'm trying to revive this thread because I saw Ruppert's Collapse on Netflix last night for the first time (I didn't have any problems watching it- I think it is also on iTunes). It scared me, but I realize that his position is controversial. Has anyone else seen this recently?

He makes an excellent point - - petroleum moves everything in this country (errr...this world).

Not just the supply trucks and their fuel.... their tires, the plastic bottles the food comes in, the plastic wrappers around the loaf of bread, the NH3 fertilizer to grow the fuel - - - - EVERYTHING exists because of the easy supply of petroleum!!!

Life will not cease if oils stops flowing... but it will not be "as easy".

Don't know if it's this is the right thing or not, :dunno: but it's more like an interview instead of a movie. Nevertheless, I'm watching it right now on youtube. It's about an hour and a half long.
