I don't recognize America today.

I do I think. Germany, in the 20's and early 30's. Different of course, history rhymes, but does not repeat... but in the ways you are mentioning.

I expect changes in the way the USA governs itself. Not changes for the better... I don't recognize it as a real democracy anymore. It was something like a democracy when I was younger, but the warning from Eisenhower fell on deaf ears, and the end game belonged to the banks.

Given time it might heal itself... but I regard both chances as unlikely.

The confluence of climate change and fiscal decline mean that there will be little time, and the control exerted by television programming and news distortions already in place means that healing is not likely even with sufficient time.

What will happen?

I cannot be sure but I am sure it cannot be good.
