I can rationalize the fear. Not that I like doing that but ill entertain it for now.
Let's say, the American Government realizes:
1. Capitalism is unsustainable in it's current form
2. Some really bad financial decisions were made in the last 50 years
3. They're near broke
In order to change this calls for drastic measures. Bailouts in the billions are proving to not be changing much. Americans are increasingly paranoid
War seems inevitable. Eventually someone will be provoked and a big war will happen between two major powers. The USA and the rest of the allies are
powerful, but poor. Perhaps China is helping the Allies by staging a war against them in the future and putting North America in a sort of
stranglehold. In the meantime major law's can be passed due to drastic times needing drastic measures.
As the world grows it becomes more complicated, the only way to stop that is all out war and depopulation which results in drastic changes in
governing due to tough times. We aren't there yet, 9/11 almost convinced us. It wasnt enough to wake us all up though to the real facts.
We are a dying Culture due to our own mass consumption.
China is dominating militarily, politically and financially. They are the major player in the region aside from Russia, who in my opinion, poses
little threat to China. Russia and China in my opinion are like Canada and the USA. Throw in Iran in for Mexico and maybe switch Alaska with North
If you look at the players on the board and watch carefully how they speak and act towards the world and each other its almost plain as day.
Maybe war wont come tomorrow, but it will come within the next 10 years I am sure of it.
