I heard that there were 2 factions and one believed that it wasn't a handkerchief, but a shirt sleeve that was coming. That's what lead to The Great Booger Wars.

Combinations of limits to growth, environmental destruction, global warming, epidemics and pandemics, economic crashes, and war.

I thought the earth had all those already? middle east, Brexit, Ebola, bound to be hot somewhere on this planet, even though the sea froze at Capetown this week, or am I being optimistic?

Not yet. Should take place a few years from now:

+1. if/when that goes it's the end of the USA as we know it, and when we go down the whole global system goes awry. may thousands will die directly and more will die/suffer from starvation as the agriculture gets suffocated / frozen (volcano-ash winter).
ultimately China & allies will march into the Middle East to take the oil fields = Armageddon.

What if it's something completely unexpected, like the entire Universe being squished into 2 dimensions without any warning. It's stuff like that which keeps me awake at night.

the backlash= blowback begins

the unwise decision by Obama to ignore the Supreme Court decision that the Obama suspension of immigration laws on-the-books is a Dictatorial overreach.... Laws are for everyone & an ordered society

Economic collapse due to those who have control of the economy refusing to allow their "paradigms" to be changed.

Collapse because of lack of creativity is pretty much what is already happening.

All of the religious bull, immigration and rumours of war are just distractions from the true problem.

It began in 1913 and was fought long before then.

Well, I suppose I will risk sounding like a "conspiracy nut"...

Wide-spread famine after world-wide crop failures when "unexpected" global cooling occurs due to entering a solar minimum.

All those "preppers" creating videos showing their storage of more than a month or two of food will have their food stores pillaged by the government for re-distribution, since it is considered "hoarding" to have more than 7 days worth of food.

Oh, yeah we will not be allowed to use our fireplace to keep warm during the "mini ice-age", since it will be against the law, since it it would add to the "global warming".

So, combination of famine and freezing weather.

If we do not learn from the past, we will certainly repeat it.

That will be in an overfinancialized and practically useless northern european state such as Sweden or The Netherlands.
The Netherlands has now gone towards a complete financial speculative market casino clown show. This has been going on since the end of the 90s, and the dutch bubble is about to burst once and for all. All banks in The Netherlands are historically tied to Germany, and that's precisely where the problem comes from. Deutsche Bank is at its last bark. Without primary exploitation and looting of small third world countries as they have been doing in Afghanistan, Iraq, LIbya, Mali and Greece their banks would already be completely bankrupt. In a very short time, possibly a matter of a few weeks, the EU will face its last breath, and the German real original criminal intent of their foreign deployed terrorist STURM STAFFEL, in Afghanistan and other places will have to get home for a celebratory defeat of uncanny proportions.

Don't know if you've heard of the "tulip mania" period endured by the Dutch but it's fascinating...
I've spent all day editing my hick accent on iPads speech-to-text so I'm just gonna copy and paste from Wikipedia…
It's a really interesting period in western history.
Tulip mania was a period in the Dutch Golden Age during which contract prices for tulip bulbs(seeds) of the recently introduced tulip reached extraordinarily high levels and then suddenly collapsed.

At the peak of tulip mania, in March 1637, some single tulip bulbs sold for more than 10 times the annual income of a skilled craftsman.
It is generally considered the first recorded speculative bubble (or economic bubble), although some researchers have noted that the Kipper- und Wipperzeit may have preceded it...
...The term "tulip mania" is now often used metaphorically to refer to any large economic bubble when asset prices deviate from intrinsic values.

My initial response to the question posed in this thread was, "killary gets elected". That is pretty much it. Oversimplified, but accurate.

If killary is elected I believe there will be a class war and a race war in this country. Her pandering to minorities and illegals to get the vote count needed to win is, in a sense, disenfranchising legal citizens and Caucasians. Her willingness to sell out anything and anyone for the greater good of killary will have her aligned with those who can provide her what she desires most - power. She will not find those people at the bottom of the food chain. They are the fodder.

Once destabilization begins the economic collapse will become evident, or vice versa. One will surely bring about the other, in whatever order they occur. That will trigger global problems in a world in which the US is already viewed as a nation causing more problems than it solves. With internal turmoil, economic disaster looming, and our military spread thin, we will be a good target for anyone with an axe to grind and the ability to do so.

Add to that the ever-present threat of terror and you have the recipe for a genuine disaster. Imagine the possibility of any nuclear capable nation sneaking a suitcase bomb into the US through mexico. Not terrorists, another nation. With no ballistic trajectory to trace the only way to identify the source would be the radioactive signature. Even that could be disputed, and would likely be claimed as stolen or misappropriated and the host nation could theoretically escape blame. Either way, the damage has already been done and pointing fingers would be a waste of time in light of more dire conditions demanding attention. History will sort out who was to blame. But in the mean time, hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people have died and the world as we know it no longer exists. Then comes the detritus of the initial attack, famine, disease, and so on. Imagine the great depression with no soup lines... In a time when four of five people were part of a family in which no one was employed they were still better off than we will be in this scenario.

I'll add one more related to Nostradamus and some concerned scientists.

CERN breaks into some unknown/known dimension of physics creating a super nova that annihilates the entire solar system and everything up to 10 light years away. (heard it on the radio once)

But in reality there's just so many problems that the most likely thing they are going to do is start war to reduce and control populations.

In my opinion the government could solve all the problems with technology they have kept hidden from us but they are blind with power, greed and fear. They want it all for them selves while keeping us all slaves. "oh the technology is to disruptive" they say. Disruptive to their system. Why? well we wouldn't need money anymore and we could actually share and live in abundance.
