It's quite easy to speculate on any number of cataclysmic ends for the world. In fact, I believe it's very easy for humans to come up with any
number of terrifying, worst-case scenarios for any reason.
More often than not, History has immortalized dates on which horrible events occurred. Naturally, when another ambiguous global event is prophesied,
minds gravitate towards disaster. It's not that anyone actually likes fear, disaster, and chaos -- although I sometimes wonder, when I view
the commercial success of horror movies.
To be frank, I haven't completely understood your post -- but the general gist of it seems to follow the standard frightening guidelines. In turn, I
will present two new theories for you to speculate on. I'm sure you may have come across one of them before. Neither of them should be as frightening
as most of the ones out there.
On the pre-specified date in 2012, nothing happens. Some of the most outspoken supporters of the 2012 Global Cataclysm Event will either fall
completely silent, or sheepishly proffer another date for the world to look forward to. Others may yet suggest that something happened "in another
dimension", and only "those in tune" would have been aware of it. Still others may claim that they have been "transformed", and since Cosmic
plans had changed (thanks to willing humans), they will help their brothers and sisters to transform as well -- perhaps for a fee. This paragraph
classifies as my "worst case scenario".
The second theory is this: on that date, a transformation does occur. World leaders suddenly announce that they will stop producing arms and
work together as a global group. Inspired by the sudden (and not at all sinister) announcement, humans decide to be a little nicer to each other.
Thus, the world enters a Golden Age of peace, prosperity, and healthy organic refreshments.
Make of these what you will. In the mean time, I heartily recommend that we humans let go of our epic war expectations. It's far cooler to talk about
such things than to be involved in them; if we are to concern ourselves with war cries, let us focus on silencing them permanently. 6.5 billion people
don't have to be completely susceptible to the 100,000 (if that) people that rule them. It has taken less people and less rulers to start revolutions
in the past.
