COLLAPSE: A Documentary featuring Michael C. Ruppert

submitted by Gabrielle Jones-Price

Michael C. Ruppert (February 3, 1951 – April 13, 2014) was an American writer and musician, Los Angeles Police Department narcotics officer, investigative journalist, political activist, and peak oil awareness advocate known for his 2004 book Crossing The Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil.

From 1999 until 2006, Ruppert edited and published From The Wilderness, a newsletter and website covering a range of topics including international politics, the CIA, peak oil, civil liberties, drugs, economics, corruption and investigating the motives behind 9/11. It attracted 22,000 subscribers. This 2009 documentary film Collapse, is based on his book A Presidential Energy Policy and received The New York Times' "critics pick". He served as president of Collapse Network, Inc. from early 2010 until he resigned in May 2012. He also hosted The Lifeboat Hour on Progressive Radio Network until his death in 2014.

I'm honored to be administrator of Mike's fan page, archivist and admin for his book, Crossing the Rubicon's Facebook page. With permission from him in 2012 and from the book's copyright holder, I'm able to to share essays from his book exclusively on TRC.

TRC features media analysis, social critiques and spiritual refreshments focused on the socio/cultural impacts of a post-9/11, post-carbon, ponzi scheme world teetering on the edge of mass awakening or mutually assured destruction.

In the spirit of mass awakening, the following types of comments will not be approved:

- Comments that criticize any class of people as a whole, especially when based on an attribute they don't have control over
- Comments that explicitly call for violence
- Comments with links to third party sites that are not relevant to the content of the conversation. No spam.
- Because we moderate comments does not mean we do not have a sense of humor. The Royal 'We', you know, the editorial...
- know...take it easy, man. We're all in this together.
