I don't think a real NWO would last. Unless every other world leader is part of the same secret society bent on world domination, any attempt to
create a totalitarian society all over the world or in the USA would fail.
One possible scenario:
Bush asks for a war on Iran, and a draft turns out to be necessary to get the job done properly.
The left wingers take to the streets and wage mass protests.
Right wingers go out and counterprotest.
The government cracks down and enacts a few bills in the interest of preventing future riots like this.
The scale of the crackdown and the preceding violence raises the worst fears among serious libertarians, and they proceed to stockpile weapons, and
commence underground arms manufacture and distribution.
The government catches some of these people, prompting a series of Wacoesque events that result in further backlash from the government.
Further crackdowns to prevent these things will produce stricter regulations that by their nature will tend to generate more arrests of innocent
people. With this, a number of normal people may decide to join the "survivalist nutjobs", bringing about the formation of a serious domestic
rebellion resulting in the breakdown of old partisan lines. In order to deal with the rebels adequately, the government will have to pull its troops
back from the Middle East. Once this is done, the rebels will be screwed...maybe. A half-finished war in Iran can't be good for the Middle East,
as it could easily destablize the whole region as everyone rushes to do all the things they were afraid to do with the USA breathing down their necks.
Africans go on killing each other without much pause, while Europe is left by itself to watch the Middle East destroy itself. It is possible that
some nations will be dragged into the conflict, thus widening the problem. Europe will not be very well equipped to deal with this, though, as most
of their militaries have been dropped to make room for their lovely socialism.
Meanwhile the US stands poised to crush its rebellion and come out with a more authoritarian and socialist society more likely to stand with Europe
and the UN, prone to corrupt dealings with dictators, and prone to listening to the part of the population that would rather tolerate tyranny than
pick up a gun. This would be the NWO.
On the other hand, if Russia and/or China were really afraid of this, they might see to it that the rebels won in the USA.
And yes, I realize this bears some similarity to the John Titor thing.
Another possibility is that a coincidence of multiple natural catastrophes drives the religious right insane. The Big One on the San Andreas fault,
or the New Madrid fault, the eruption of the supervolcano under Yellowstone Park, a hurricane making it to NYC, an F-5 tornado in any metropolitan
area, a tsunami on either of the USA's coasts... even one of these has the potential to get the televangelists preaching about the end of the world.
I think it would take three such disasters to get people really nuts. The first one would be met by the usual level of alarm, and thus dismissed.
The second one would be met by a greater level of alarm driving the religious types to put out a more intense effort to get the message out--many
people would hear them, but still dismiss them. After the third event there would be enough normal people alarmed to sustain a state of panic. The
televangelists will believe they have to institute a Christian theocracy in order to appease an angry God, and there will be enough support among the
public to make this a possibility. In a surprising move the Vatican will support this movement and similar things will be happening elsewhere in the
world. If it stopped there, it's a NWO. However, the book of Revelation might offer some relieving information as to how this scenario will end.
