What will be left, of our civilized world, after the pole shift? The physical infrastructure will operate on the broken link philosophy, and be very broken. Rescue from governments or charities will not occur, as the whole world has been affected. Starvation, and how to deal with this when there is not enough to go around. The death rate, and what parts of the globe or society are most affected. Surprising changes of survival among the affluent or working class. What health problems will spell doom, and which may surprisingly disappear. In what way benign aliens will assist survivors, and which survivors qualify for this assistance. Why existing forms of government will likely collapse. How survival communities will govern themselves, the surprising leadership options, and how they should deal with demands from the self centered. And why the barter system will become the mode.
