Not rocket science, but looking at certain historic events, probably not to far off the mark. I'm referring to the events at the end of the Roman Empire (Economic polarization and an ineffective legislature). Also, the French and American revolutions where the common masses (the have nots) were overloaded by supporting, and severely dissatisfied with, an out of touch ruling oligarchy(the haves).

IMHO, economic and political polarization, along with an ineffective legislation, are the fuel and oxygen for a revolution. I'm not going to say more because I will start to rant.

I've read a few interesting pieces in The Atlantic.

But this one seems like a complete fabrication -- the kind of thing you'd expect in an overheated blog rather than a grown-up publication.

NASA was quick to point out that it had nothing whatsoever to do with it.

Bleep! I just responded to FUD. You think after all these years, I'd have known to run down the original content/article instead of relying on a dressed up repost.

The US population could remove their inneffective legislature by voting and end inequality by voting for people who would change taxation. I think that would happen before society collapsed.

Err, qjs, I'd stay away from politics if I were you. It's a time of great ill-temper for our American neighbours.

Not for those of us who have tuned out. Jazz on FM never sounded so good.

Good advice doug. Hence I didn't lay any blame for the inneffectivenness and inequality.
