Thanks for this post. This idea is something that has been kicking around in my head recently, and I agree whole heartedly. For me it seems to be related to the idiom nature abhors a vacuum. Where there is a niche, life will fill it.

So too with power, greed, corruption, and so forth. In difficult times it is too easy to believe that these are the dominant forces, but each has its opposite and they are no less powerful as motivating forces.

Indeed there is no such thing as collapse. There is only evolution, adaptation, and change.
