Look, society isn’t going to last forever. Whether as a result of war, famine, plague, or just good old fashion economic instability, eventually the orderly system of law and government that we’ve all gotten so used to is going to come crashing down. And unfortunately, when it comes to civilizations, the bigger they are the harder they fall. Just look at Rome. When it came apart, the collapse resulted in a European Dark Age that lasted for about a thousand years.
