To quote Gerald Celente: “When people lose everything and have nothing left to lose, they lose it.” As we wrote in the Trends Journal two years ago, “When a critical mass of human spirit rises to higher levels, the state rises with it.” But the public’s estimation of the moral character of its leaders has hit epic lows. America is in decline, its people in a spiraling state of denial. The result? Fast-growing feelings of powerlessness and a diminishing sense of self-respect.
Trend Forecast: A crossroads has been arrived at: In 2016, any number of racial, nationalistic or economic trigger points could ignite widespread civil unrest – or a unified uprising that could at last challenge the status quo before disaster strikes. It will be noticeably manifested in the rise of third parties replacing entrenched political parties throughout Europe.
