Pretty funny. Of course new iPhones won’t reduce school shootings. However school shootings however horrible are no way close to causing a “collapse”. Actually new i pads may lead to more computerized home schooling as a response to school safety concerns. The point is social problems and less than ideal conditions is not collapse. You can go on and live your life with tons of problems and imperfections all around. The picture is mixed, but there are lots of definite improvements that belie any impending plunge.
