This is a FB post I wrote today. I did not want to get into predictions there, but I believe this is the proper venue.
If you cannot see it, friend me. Unfriend me after, if you like... I will not get butt-hurt.
If you followed my previous thread on this subject, you will recall that Hurricane Sandy threw a wrench in my equations. The end result was the same,
but the cause was altered. That made the equations false.
They are a work in progress. No study may be considered valid if it cannot accurately predict results, so I will attempt the projections a second
In this instance, I continue with the assumption that the US is directed by a three variable social equation. First is the unnamed collective, which
tends towards socialism and has its roots in the SDS. Second is the Machine, and the third is Conservatism, which rises in opposition to the strength
of the other two.
Currently I see the machine as undirected and in control of its own throttle. Its lack of coherent direction will last only a short time if this
condition does not change. The machine wants self direction. It must either change its own nature or overcome its own programming. If this happens,
the US will cease to exist, and we face the spectre of civil war.
The unnamed collective exists to subvert authority of any sort. It currently controls the machine, and shares control of the military. It also
controls, to a degree, extremist attacks throughout the world. It is the common unifying thread throughout all of the world, as spread through
American scholarship. It desires change at any cost, and harbors hatred for any obstacle.
Finally, Conservatism wants nothing to change. It opposes the power of the other two, and stymies them.
Without outside influence, this condition is static. However, conditions are about to change.
Global food production has dropped, while demand has increased. I estimate a doubling in the real cost of food over the next ten months. This creates
a new Hunger threat, which evolves into a Security threat. This will topple at least two governments. China and pakistan are my picks for this.
In the US, byNovember I see either an explosion in the influence of the unnamed collective, or an ursurpation of control by the machine. In either
case, Conservatism lacks the depth to counter the threat. This could change with a cohesive leadership, but I do not expect such leadership to rise.
Even if it does, it can only stall the descent into madness. It cannot halt it.
I expect that the machine, under the control of the unnamed collective, will allow one homeland attack to fail, and one to succeed. I expect the
attack to be directed at children, or puppies, or nuns, or something equally unthinkable.
You may recall that I predicted an economic recovery, followed by a devastating collapse, in the previous thread. I stand by that still.
That is it, for now. I may easily be wrong. I have been wrong before.
