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.
Hope for the best and prepare for the worst.
