Past Lessons

Other countries have gone through crisis similar to Peak Oil. Notably Cuba. Russia has gone through a political crisis. Argentina and other South American countries have gone through a crisis in their financial system. These examples give us something that we can look to when searching for answers. Beside the Cubans (which for me is the Peak Oil example par excellence) (see The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil), the Russians might also become a "role" model. Just like the Cubans have gone through a collapse, so have the Russians. Can we learn from them? Read and "Social Collapse Best Practices". Even Kenya might help us understand what is important and what's not in a "Life After the Crash".

Funny that the US might have to learn from their biggest enemies (Cuba and Russia) and that the "enemies" are possibly a step ahead nowadays.
