    i think people might accept fascism as long as their economic needs- and some of their wants- were sated. that was one of the fears and arguments against the new deal, from that era's more radical left. but unless it reverses, the economic warfare has reached a level where radicalization will become inevitable. i don't think radicalization necessarily will turn out well, but i do think upheaval will become organic, widespread, and impossible to stop. at that point, i would not predict where it would end.

      It can go good or bad.

      Basically I think the solution is a stronger welfare state because we already have 5 billion people and only 3.5 billion jobs on the planet, or something like that- I know the difference is  a scale of a billion jobs needed to take up the slack

      On top of that, we are going to have more people and we are probably going to have fewer jobs. That's just where things are heading technologically (eg- in 50-100 years- all of manufacturin as we know it may not exist at all)
