The way I see it...

Future of America: A tiny, ultra-wealthy elite lives in highly-fortified luxury compounds. They have more in common with elites from other countries (with whom they go to school, marry, and do business with) than they do with their own poorer countrymen. They derive wealth from ownership of multinational companies with production bases spread across the globe. Meanwhile, outside, an increasingly impoverished and ignorant mass of ordinary people populate a ruined, toxic landscape.

Future of Europe: A tiny, ultra-wealthy elite lives in highly-fortified luxury compounds. They have more in common with elites from other countries (with whom they go to school, marry, and do business with) than they do with their own poorer countrymen. They derive wealth from ownership of multinational companies with production bases spread across the globe. Meanwhile, outside, an increasingly impoverished and ignorant mass of ordinary people populate a ruined, toxic landscape.

Future of China: A tiny, ultra-wealthy elite lives in highly-fortified luxury compounds. They have more in common with elites from other countries (with whom they go to school, marry, and do business with) than they do with their own poorer countrymen. They derive wealth from ownership of multinational companies with production bases spread across the globe.

Future of India: A tiny, ultra-wealthy elite lives in highly-fortified luxury compounds.

Future of Russia: A tiny, ultra-wealthy elite lives in highly-fortified luxury compounds.

Future of everywhere else: A tiny, ultra-wealthy elite lives in highly-fortified luxury compounds. They have more in common with elites from other countries (with whom they go to school, marry, and do business with) than they do with their own poorer countrymen. They derive wealth from ownership of multinational companies with production bases spread across the globe.

That is a rather bleek but acurate assumtion of the future.

Nice opinions, however the definitions need to have boundaries. The comprehension of your tiny may be different from the comprehension measurement of someone else. Thus, it may be true from your perspective, however may not be applicable to the wider audience.

Needs to be more explanatory and agree with a previous comment, that it will be tough to convince a wider audience.
