Yes I know. I believe it's inevitable that the states will collapse within our lifetime. Uncertainty, low education and poverty are widespread. Strong polarization makes politics impossible. When China pass the states as an economy the rest of the world the states end up in the shadow which will be the spark that ignite the same pattern we have seen in failed states throughout the history. A civil war isn't unlikely. What state and what ideology rise from the ashes we do not know but it's unlikely to be democratic.

Mankind must put an end to war or war will put an end to mankind. - John F Kennedy
An eye for an eye, and soon the whole world is blind. - Mahatma Gandhi
The world is my country. To do good is my religion. My mind is my own church. This simple creed is all we need to enjoy peace on earth. - Thomas Paine
