It definatly seems like someone or group of someones is trying to crash things BUT.
until the planet is this damaged??
until so many resources are used up??
communication is so easy??
Are there opposing forces behind the scenes?? Like "Stargate"
Or are those in power just too out of touch and are not able to see what is happening
My own old school opinion is that most people are so addicted to electronics that they wiil be the down fall.
Computers run almost everything
for 20years in a lot of cases cars and trucks are computer controlled , A few GM diesel pickups with manual transmissions to '93 and Dodge Diesels
with manual transmissions to '96
Class 8 trucks for the most part Since '95 some earlier
Same basic thing for construction equipment.
A few well placed EMP s and a lot of the wheels stop turning the lights go out, heating, cooling, communication ......
