Word of the Day - Collapsitarian

Kevin Kelly has already categorized the doom and gloomers for you:

There seem to be about six species of collapsitarians:

  1. Luddites, anarchists, and anti-civilization activists

  2. Goldbugs, survivalists, Y2K holdouts, and slightly right wingers

  3. Conservationists and greenies

  4. Somewhat leftist anti-globalists

  5. Critics of American super-power

  6. Former financial employees


They all have their reasons, most believe that we should now (somehow) be penalized for past excesses. Isn't there a special fee we could pay someone to make this little problem go away? Like in South America?
