I thought I would take a stab at some "future history", so I looked up the wikipedia article on the French Revolution and tweaked it a bit (original
article here en.wikipedia.org...
Causes of the 2nd American Revolution
Although the United States in 2012 faced economic difficulties, mostly concerned with taxation, defict spending, and unemployment, it was widely
considered the richest and most powerful nation on the planet. The American people also enjoyed more political freedom and lower incidence of
arbitrary punishment than any other country on the planet. However, the US President, the US Congress, and the widespread Corporate Executive
population had become immensely unpopular. This was a consequence of the fact that the middle and lower classes were burdened with a ruinously high
cost of goods and services used to support wealthy aristocrats and their sumptuous, often gluttenous lifestlyes combined with a plumetting job
In summary, a number of factors led to the outbreak of the 2nd American Revolution. Deep structural causes combined with factors peculiar to the
period. Revolution was not due to a single event but a series of events that, together, irreversibly changed the organization of political power, the
nature of society, and the exercise of individual freedoms.
