Civilization Collapse

A few people I’ve gotten to know over the years have asked if I have a history degree.  When they do I refer them to my brothers who both have degrees and have taught in the subject.  Recently I came across a video that connects several of my favorite topics, history, systems theory, economics, and archeology.  I believe it’s worth sharing.

In the video the author explains how he believes that the systems society was based on prior to the ~1200 BC collapsed causing a reset for humanity.  I love how as an aside he includes a reference to the emergence and popularity of a nearly common alphabet. Remember, according to Epcot, ‘if you can read this, thank the Phoenicians.”
