The world is hurtling towards another world war. If we examine the previous two world wars, we can see a definite pattern: these always fallow, by a decade, a long depression. And they feature greater powers of central bankers and a widening gap between workers and oligarchs. Generally speaking, there is a quest to replenish government coffers not by taxation but by imperialist exploitation and clashes over distant exploitable territories become very violent very quickly. Meanwhile, racist/religionist national socialism rises rapidly as dominant populations seek to maintain their grip on social services via cutting off services to minorities and others.
