I don't know how the industrial era will collapse, only that it will. My guess is that a worldwide economic crisis will be a major part of the story. It is only fitting since industrialism in all its many forms is rooted in greed and the love of money.Considering the book is published in 2006, it is becoming apparent that he was correct with his guess and we have only seen the ramifications within the USA, just wait until it flows throughout the EU! I believe we are at the beginning of the end of the modern industrial era, how this will impact on your life will depend on where you place your trust. I place my trust in the God of the Bible, as Herrick says:
Only God knows how the demise of the industrial era will be played out. That's because He is sovereign, He knows the beginning from the end. He directs the events of history for His own purposes, primary of which is to bring glory to Himself.Sola dei Gloria.
