    As far as the police state goes, I still don't see it happening here. In the 1950s, we got closer than we've ever been, and as the war on terror peters out we'll trend toward freedom again. China is getting freer all the time, which makes me doubt the U.S. will ever be worse (than they are, at least).

    Again, with taxes on the rich shooting up and up and up and Wall Street facing extreme regulation, what benefits are the "aristocrats" going to be reaping that they didn't have before Obama/Bush?
    The thing I see is definitely a bigger, more intrusive, more controlling government less enough people snap out of their apathy and start to engage in an intelligent manner in the political process. There is a new aristocracy being formed. While it appears that the rich are being taxed more, more money is being funneled in that direction for the top echilon. All that bailout money, our money, flowing to the big players and such. If you were really interested in going after the rich, you'd invade that Cayman islands, take over the banks there.

    I wonder how many people would **** themselves if we surprised took over the Cayman? Now that would be reality TV.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    The next form of national government is anarchy, with innumerable local governments ruling/governing by a myriad of methods -- some through a democratic process, some though despotism, some through something in between.

    The national currency will be ammunition.

    So every culture will revert to African nationalism?

    I wasn't speaking of everywhere, just here.

    But, upon consideration of the broader topic, when it happens here, everywhere else will follow.

    An event of such magnitude that makes our federal government collapse on itself would be required for that to happen.
