Reposted from QSLS: QSLS Documentary of the week: "Collapse"
Watched this movie last week and it has really stuck with me. Collapse is not your traditional conspiracy doc. A whistle blower by the name of Michael Ruppert was asked to be interviewed for a movie about the CIA's involvement in drug smuggling in South Central L.A. in the 80's. After talking to Ruppert for a little bit and hearing some of his opinions and information they decided they could make a much more interesting movie about that, than drug smuggling.
The main area of discussion is about peak oil and the idea that we have already achieved it. Oil and fossil fuels are in virtually everything (7 gallons of oil in every tire, 800 million cars on the planet) and there is nothing, anywhere in any combination that will replace the edifice built by fossil fuels. The long and the short is, once the oil runs out, which it will in our lifetime the world will face a collapse of monumental proportions. Comparable to the mayan civilization or (if you believe in that sort of thing) the lost city of Atlantis.
The whole movie is just Ruppert sitting in a chair in front of a camera, being interviewed by the director. It is a little depressing, sort of along the same lines of Zeitgeist, however, I liked it better, because Ruppert is a confident speaker and is interesting to listen to. Also he seems a little more credible than many of the other conspiracy doc's and doesn't come across as a crack pot like Alex Jones. Check it out, it can be obtained for free from any torrent site
