"Thus the Dark Ages Flower Power revival!

All interested parties migrate westward to San Francisco, AGAIN.  Including Slick and Marty."

I rather suspect that, come a real dark ages, people will be migrating to the countryside rather than to cities, since the food distribution networks will be seriously disrupted.  There will also be less food, since the civilized world will receive its comeuppance for big agriculture -- no oil for fertilizer, thus no fertilizer, thus no crop.  Pest plagues caused by monocropping, soil fertility headed toward zero, pesticide pollution causing super-pests with super-immunity, greenhouse effect disrupting weather patterns (thus no harvest) etc.

A dark ages is BAD, E.
