BECAUSE WE ARE SCREWED ON ALL THE BIG METRICS
–“But if you predicted [revolution] in 2006, what were you basing that prediction on then? Is your real name Hari Seldon?”–Richard Hall
demographics is destiny. Economics, demographics, global power distribution, generational cycles in response to ‘forgotten’ generational foundation myths.
We are screwed on every single one of those metrics.
(BTW: assuming the population remains ignorant of the changes – as ours are – there is no reason that long term trends are not loosely predictable. There is a lot of noise between major shifts, but major shifts are predictable.)
