    The last time we had a big worldwide collapse (which began in 1926), the Emperor Cult triumphed in Japan, the Nazis took over Germany, and the Spanish Republic (fairly radical and sometimes cruel) turned into Franco's Spain (reactionary and brutal).  

    When Russia collapsed, the Bolsheviki took over (bad enough), followed by Stalin.

      But we also got the new deal and ended colonialism.  I don't wish for disaster, but as I've said before it looks more and more like disaster is what's on the menu.  We should be prepared politically and otherwise.

      There revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.
