Technical Production Note:  In  the first 10 minutes or so of the Interview, I was working on my Cell Phone rather than over Skype, and my Audio is not very good there. Dmitry’s Audio is clear and so is Monsta’s.  I switched to Skype and my Audio for the rest of the Podcast is quite clear.


 


http://transitionvoice.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/dmitry.jpgDmitry Orlov has been studying the dynamics of the Collapse of Industrial Society for many years, he runs the Blog Club Orlov and is author of The 5 Stages of Collapse, as well as succeeding texts on the subject.  In my first years investigating Collapse issues, Dmitry’s name was often bandied about on the Peak Oil forum.


In this first part of our interview with Dmitry we look at the ongoing conflict inside Ukraine,  conflicts in the Middle East,the underlying conflicts of Energy and Credit systems behind these problems, Bilateral trade agreements between Russia and the other BRICS nations and many other related topics.


In Part II we look at more general aspects of collapse, possibilities for a population Bottleneck or Near Term Human Extinction, and the potential for developing Sustainable Communities in the aftermath of Industrial Civilization Collapse.

Very interesting indeed, but I had to cringe when RE used the word 'miscegenaton' even in the context of countries and communities. DNA desires diversity.

If it weren't tragic it would be a comedy of errors, but it's tragic, so it's a tragedy of errors.

Dmitry Orlov

Nice work, RE and Monsta. I listened to this one.

Well done, RE, Monsta, and Dimitri. I think I will post it on Facebook, where I have not posted but once the past year or more. I'm not sure most Americans are ready to hear this, but there was much that Americans need to hear. Thank you,
