Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Why this is a catabolic collapse? Compared with John Michael Greer's definition, the described occurrence is not something forced by pressures of limited resources. Greer's catabolic largely means utilizing still present infrastructure to its bones as nothing could be renewed or developed. The cited "service alterations" is something opposite: deliberately neglecting and shrinking still workable infrastructure.
