How would society handle technological disaster?
Watching the pilot of NBC’s new show, Revolution. How would our society handle it if electricity decided to just quit? Would it dissolve into chaos, going back to pre-industrial tech? Or would it merely revert to the last technology we had that didn’t rely on electricity (say, late-1800’s)? Or would something else happen?
