|The 'American Century' was short-lived. Some measure of benevolent stability. "Now back to your regularly scheduled programming."
Looks like 1908 again:
Many proxies, entanglements, treaties, thuggery in small countries as a pre-cursor.
Tammany Hall style corruption leading many 'western' democracies.
Renewed vigor in Theology wars. Marxism, Socialism. Capitalism.
Resurgent militant islam.
Will it be two World Wars and 50 years again before we re-set into the next stable pattern?
Been re-reading much H.G. Wells.
Watched "Things to Come".
