No no, I mostly rely on predictive linguistic analysis.

Don't worry, the government will have to keep expanding it's socialism. Not much is going to fail.

They soon won't be able to keep expanding it. Unless they're willing to play games with hyperinflation. For the last 4 presidents, the national deficit has been about doubling every 8 years. And during that time, they've been ever increasing the amount of people who rely on the government for financial assistance in everyday things, such as food. Not to mention, there's been a growing movement of discontent, both with big government, and government at all. This recent 'fake news' play has really opened the government media outlets to a lot of critical examination, especially after they fell on their faces so hard with the clinton campaign. The facade is crumbling, and even if it wasn't, they're creating a larger and larger population of people who simply CAN'T continue on as they are.
I don't wish the evils of financial collapse on anyone, and I wish it wasn't going to happen, but I honestly don't see it playing out any other way at this point. This time next year, I suspect we're all going to be living in a wildly different world.

Dude, it's been going on since at least the New Deal. The reality is that everything continues to operate. Nothing is going to change, 99% of the people are zombies to the fiat illusion.

I have been reading about the above scenarios since 1978.

So far, not so much.

I think it comes down to the fact that there is a lot of wealth to destroy.

Pretty much all the governments of the world are sucking on the necks of their people. The competitive advantage means that if you drain them at a similar rate it ends up being a relatively level playing field.

They are pretty much stealing the inheritance of the next generation.

  I'm wondering when cash becomes extinct and how it will manifest.  It makes sense to do that, from "their" perspective.

It gets even funner when you think about how people will demand the "right" to advanced technology in order to be able to continue to live.

In a few decades, the world will be in a very strange economic situation.

Probably, but we haven't figured out how to reasonably deal with it quite yet. Besides inflation, that nobody seems to really care about anyway.

Compelling  a person to purchase a "service" and then still trying to call it a service seems blatantly illogical to me.

I'm curious if they (The Trumpites) will apply the same logic to government schools.
