And I knew it all along. I have been trying to warn people over the internet about what is going to happen but they do not listen. They do not listen ! THEY DO NOT LISTEN !!!
Yes, and get your licks in while there's still time. "When" (IMO more likely than "if") something politically/economically/militarily really big erupts, involving several major nations, the first casualty will be the internet!

Seconding that. The Donald appears to be re-instating royalty (and Chinese-style family cronyism), and using intimidation to get people at all levels to tow the line. Three (so far) retired generals in major cabinet posts, whose nature is to follow orders, and martial law will be just around the corner.

(That may be just another conspiracy theory.)

But remember history, e.g. Richard Nixon. He tended to operate with a sense of royal empowerment, but made so many enemies along the way that one opportune day they all came out and cashed him in.

Surely it is a bit of overstatement .. the world? Here in South Asia everything is just fine and economy is buoyant. I am sure it is the same in South Africa and Japan too.

Why this Western propensity to think the world revolves around New York or London? Even if aliens came and occupied North American continent (War of Worlds kind of scenario) people from Tel Aviv, Durban, Delhi, Singapore, Sydney, Kyoto will continue to do just fine (provided the aliens do not visit here).

We have survived without North American civilisation for thousands of years and shall continue to do so for thousands of years (barring asteroids). No need to transpose North American problems and anxieties on to rest of us who lead simple, blissful lives.

In my opinion this video is well worth 6 minutes of your time. It is from a couple of years ago and was made for a UK audience but, in my opinions, the ideas are relevant to a number of threads which have been on here recently. And are thought provoking.

There is also a clip by the same film maker called "How Trump Adopted Russian Political Technology to Subvert Democracy" on you tube taken from the film "HyperNormalisation"
