Crux of Tweedledoom and Tweedledee by John Michael Greer:

  • The belief in 12/21/2012 is not based on any fact, like many previous beliefs in past dates for apocalypses.
  • The belief in shale gas is not based on geophysical and economic facts, like many previous economic bubbles.
  • Both these beliefs free their holders from making any real actions that will improve their future.
