Fate, religion will likely be the popular explanation of the collapse, while human will learn nothing and continue ignorant of what actually bring us to this pity state.

The best way to pass this precious heritage down the post-collapse world is to educate as many as we can about our knowledge of sustainability.

Therefore, even though the collapse is seemingly inevitable, education about sustainability is still worth to pursue.
