Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The source of your grief are related to your expectations. Thats what over-optimism does.

There is indeed someone whose expectations about how this would play out have been spot on: John Michael Greer.

The corollary is that his style of preparations (and things like transition towns) are probably the best thing to do... Political/societal effort is therefore less impactfull

Interestingly Portugal has a fairly active transition town movement (at least a couple of years ago): critical mass, smart people...
