The Retro Future

I just finished reading The Retro Future by John Michael Greer. Iā€™d rate it about 7/10. The author argues that the Western concept of unending ‘progress’ is an illusion and that due to diminishing resources our society may be heading towards a serious decline. If a decline or even collapse of industrial civilization is inevitable then we should look for old technologies and tools that would enable society to continue but using less energy and other natural resources. Finished 21 January 2021, 256 pages. (Kindle edition). šŸ“š
