RE: The Berlin Wall fell 30 years ago...
I appreciate your forward thinking post. I have known about the Deagel numbers almost since they came out, and I have dismissed them out of hand ever since. While additional stressors on Americans are surfacing, and global war can yet destroy the country, no one's estimates will be accurate in the chaos of war.
I also disagree that intelligence agencies have a handle on sound predictions even a decade out, much less a century. They may shoot for accurate prognostication, but the complexities of geopolitical machinations are unpredictably impacted by far too many factors to have any confidence in even the best reckoning based on extant conditions and likely developments. My biggest concern is that they know this, and thus simply seek to attain the greatest control in emergent exigency as possible.
This means war. The incessant revelations that these agencies and the banksters effecting policy are the primary serial mass murderers, child sex traffickers, drug smugglers, organ harvesters, and every truly evil enterprise in the world are going to have an inevitable impact, and produce highly motivated, informed, and competent opposition to the ongoing criminal brutality. Censoring these facts is becoming ever more impossible, and the extremity of the indoctrination and propaganda necessary to prevent effective opposition to savage depredations is also now so eldritch and fantastic that it is becoming impossible to keep masses of people psychologically corralled and subservient.
People dying in droves and desperate for necessary means of survival in times of war, famine, and plague aren't very capable of nominal implementation of political organization on a global scale, which is a vote for war, and war is also the ace up the sleeve of profiteering banksters, even war that leaves no refugia for bunkered elites - which has never happened on a consequential scale. The ladder of chaos leads all egomaniacal psychopaths to seek it, and these are both more votes for war.
In fact there is no vote against I am aware of. Even the advent of individual means of producing luxury and commodity goods that erodes institutional power is a vote for war, rather than against, as the longer this tech flows to the global population, the more power counterterrorist free people have to oppose the long established terrorist regime. Our best hope is that war is delayed as long as possible to disperse this pan-industrial technology nominally so that security against armed force is robust and persists despite genocidal effort by extant corrupt forces.
However, absent extinction of humanity, even the collapse of civilization can but delay the eventual decentralization of productive power that will render political power obsolete. Billions may die, but if any live the cycle of research and technological advance will never end until that tyranny we abhor is rendered utterly obsolete. This freedom is just a side effect of continually improving technology, and is the inevitable result of decentralization, which physics has established as more efficient and profitable than centralized mechanisms.
Of course we shall see what new days bring, and folks intent on survival and prosperity are required to attend to emergent developments. I will look forward to your next post.
