We go down, we take the planet with us. If Pax Americana ends without anyone ready to fill the void, the world will spiral into chaos and war.
Dark Ages 2.0
Realistically though in terms of history, especially parallels with the Roman Republic, the US is about to enter a new phase.
The Roman Republic was rocked by financial problems, assassinations of prominent politicians, riots, very similar to the events in the US between the
1960s and the present. In the end the civilian government lost control to a military coup. The military dictatorship of Sulla would clear the way for
the rise of Julius Caesar and the birth of the Empire.
If the US continues to parallel Rome, then the near future financial and social disorder will result in an enlightened military dictatorship, followed
by a minor civil war, and then the birth of a true Empire, an empire that will restore world order and security in the wake of the global collapse.
