Quest for Vengeance
The collapse of the modern state as a stable social institution is accelerating beyond most people’s imagination. Although we had early warnings from Argentina and elsewhere, the turbo–charged theft of Wall Street heists and IMF austerity is now reverberating throughout North America and Western Europe.
No longer is colonialism limited to the Third and Fourth World; today, agents of private equity are quickly cannibalizing public reserves set aside for health, education and retirement. As public health collapses in former superpowers like the US and Russia, economic panic and religious hysteria will soon become commonplace.
Scrambling for survival, no one will be immune to the pandemonium. As calamities proliferate, the quest for vengeance will likely replace our demands for justice.
