13. SHOULD I TELL MY FRIENDS ABOUT PEAK OIL?
Matt Savinar and other peak oil dead-enders deeply want the current system to collapse, and they are allowing their emotions to interfere with their rational judgment. They exaggerate any and every piece of data which suggests collapse is near (even if it has nothing to do with peak oil), and ignore or ridicule any and every piece of data which suggests collapse may be delayed or avoided.
If you decide to tell your friend's and family that the world will be coming to an end shortly, you will be accepting a risk. The risk is that they will believe you and drastically change their lives because they trust you. Then they are going to be waiting, year after year, for the horrible events you forecast to come true. If they do not come true (or do not come true quick enough), you may have to face some unhappy people who feel you deceived them and made them look like fools.
Just a possibility you should be aware of.
