This piece indicates that if we don’t make big changes fast, our civilization is headed for a collapse. I agree.
There’s other evidence:
The city of Miami will be knee deep in water. Most of the land in FLA will be turn to swamp. The island of Manhattan and parts of NJ will be flooded. Frackers will make mistakes, the water will be contaminated. Then of course all the fires, everything else that comes when the planet has a melt down.
2. Our government is corrupt
Watch “House of Cards” on Netflix.
Big money has already taken over our political system and the Supreme Court. In 15 years it’ll be about those with capital. A good education won’t be near enough.
3. The prison population is extending to low income neighborhoods
New Jim Crow is happening.
4. The GDP isn’t growing fast enough to pay off our debt
We’re financing debt — with more debt.
5. Global conflicts lead to nuclear war
Putin is a tough guy, he’s not afraid of us. I think he wants to throw down, just to see what happens. If it doesn’t blow in Russia, it will in the Middle East.
The Republicans will run on a “Obama is a Socialist, he blew it on health care, we need to get tough, damn it!” platform. Most don’t see the benefits of Obamacare, or they refuse to look at the truth because they get their news from Facebook and Fox. If the Republicans land back in power, it won’t be the party of Lincoln — it’ll be RINO’s (Republicans In Name Only). This group believes in end times, that’s why they’re all lining their suitcases with cash right now. They don’t care about the environment, anyone else but themselves. They love war. It all adds up to happy trigger fingers — “Drop The Big One”.
What will save us from ourselves? I wish I knew. There’s no RFK or MLK out there. People get their news from Facebook and Fox. Big oil is already wiping out our land, on a fast track to forever poisoning our air, food and water supply. There’s zero political will power to do anything but keep themselves and those that finance them in power.
I’m looking for optimism. Having a hard time right now. Where’s there reason for optimism?
