I asked Gerald how bad things are going to get because he has a feeling for that more than most. In this interview it's a man from Brooklyn talking to the street wise guy from the Bronx. The interview leads off an essay that addresses the converging simultaneous events of food crisis, calamities of nature like today's mega earthquake off the coast of Japan, the fiscal and moral failure of government running head on to a gathering financial collapse that will bring civilization to its knees in anarchy, fascist control and severe economic depression.
