I enjoyed playing the Fallout video games, if anyone is not familiar with them they are based in a post apocalyptic version of America after a war
between China and United States results in Nuclear Fallout.
Although this is completely coincidental (or is it?), I feel like the timeline in the video game, although not perfect, matches up suprisingly well
with current events playing out around the globe.
The timeline doesn’t contain much before 2052, but I am inclined to believe we are there now so 2052(Fallout) is akin to 1970-(real-time)
2052, March 5th: The United States closes its borders.
April: Resource Wars begin. Smaller nations go bankrupt as the European Commonwealth declares war on the Middle East in response to rising oil
May: The ailing United Nations begins to collapse. In a series of heated debates, many nations withdraw from the organization as the U.N. tries to
keep the peace.
All of these things seem to have transpired or are currently transpiring as increasing populations are drain to resources globally and beginning to
see the ramifications of such.
Now this is where it’s gets fun, for those of you who have bothered to follow along....
The socially transmitted New Plague arises, killing tens of thousands. The United States closes its borders and the first-ever national quarantine is
declared. The source of the plague is unknown, but rumors persist that it is a genetically engineered weapon
I like how the resource wars, Great War are preceded by an initial Virus just like what is happening today. It even mentions first ever quarantines.
To finish off the year in 2053,
December: Like an exclamation mark on the end of a very bad year, a terrorist nuclear weapon destroys Tel Aviv
I hope that doesn’t happen but we will see, I will continue reading the Fallout history proceeding the Sino-American War
Of note, is a future “invasion” of Canada by America under the context of protecting Canada, but eventually leads to the annexation of Canada
