Bearing in mind what was said about the reliability of the secular pundits, if economists are to be believed, the crisis is likely to be a global economic cataclysm. In another corner of the conspiracy community, the most common secular apocalypse is man made global warming,... or is that climate change? Every weather anomaly—though we're constantly informed by the climate gurus that weather and climate are not the same thing—is used by the very same climate change gurus as evidence of human caused global warming or, as it is known by its sexier name, anthropogenic climate change. Serious criticism of the global warming alarmist agenda is summarily dismissed and ridiculed, even though the data, i.e., the facts—and scientists are supposed to be about the facts—require a much more rigorous reading if we are to gain a perspective that is not burdened by political extremism.
And then there is the very real threat to democracy and inalienable rights posed by an ideology variously named—e.g., jihadism. Now that Soviet communism has ceased to be the big bad guy, though, one could argue against the evidence that the errors of socialism still infect western institutions, a new threat in the form of parasitic groups and radicalized individuals modelling a violent ideology attack societies like ever-adapting viruses that attack and destroy their human hosts. While nations live in denial and avoid calling said ideology a cancer and thus avoid treating it as one would treat a cancer, minority Christian and Yezidi populations in the Middle East and elsewhere are being consumed by a disease which has now spread to Western societies and has begun to metastasize as a horrifying increase in the rape of Scandinavian women, violent clashes between immigrant populations and security forces, the development of no-go zones in many European cities, terrorist acts committed by individuals and groups claiming allegiance to extremist organizations—the litany of horror goes on and on.
Society's bullies, barbarians really, are the ones who don't want anyone putting "limits" on their behaviour. True to the anarchist dogma, modern bullies are behaving as petulant children who are incapable, and certainly unwilling, to acknowledge that a civilized society must have healthy boundaries lest it fall under the sway of the most brutal and irrational individual or group or ideology.
