Notes

A debacle is an End of Stage (specifically end of Stage Two) risk/occurrence. A debacle occurs when a species has developed advanced economic, political, technological, and military systems without healing and a concomitant reConnection. A debacle occurs because a disconnected species cannot handle the powers provided by advanced technological and administrative capacity.

A debacle is characterized by ecological, economic, social, political, and military spiral into self-destruction. A debacle occurs when technological/military advancement outpaces the emotional, psychological, and spiritual development of a species.

Debacles typically do not wipe out a species, but they can cause an inordinate amount of unnecessary suffering, and they can set a species back several decades or more, depending on how catastrophic the debacle is. For this reason, if necessary, an Intervention may be staged.
