1 Humans are not descended from apes. Apes and humans share a common ancestor.
2. The decline started when fast food, cars and consumerism took over in the Western World. Since then the whole world has become a prisoner to the elite.
Humanity will pass via diseases. A single pandemic will kill off 20-22% of the population causing a cascade failure of all systems (power, water, sewage, shipping, farming) which triggers other events, such as riots, looting, starvation in the big cities.
The governments, powerless to do anything effective, will worsen the situation by declaring whatever passes as martial law in their territory. This will be the basic system by which the new dark ages city states will rule themselves under.
Humanity (or any species on earth) only had/has one shot at an industrial revolution. Once we lose what we got, we can't have another one.
Why? All of the near surface resources have been depleted. The only way we manage to continue industry is we now have the technology to mine/drill deep. A fall back to 1800's level technology is sufficient to keep humans forever on earth, and forever trapped at an 1800's level technology.
