Really, what the hell is going on these days? We've got more countries revolting and more blood shed by protesters as the days go on. Whether you want to believe it or not, we're still in a world where unstable, irrational leaders have nuclear codes. Even though it may not be the flavor-of-the-month story or top trending topic on Twitter, it is a very real threat. Even putting all the supposed "natural disasters" that are aimed to take place over the next few years (Solar Storms, 2012 (lol), Volcanoes, etc.), there is still one large, looming question that stands out:
What the hell is happening with the world?
Are we finally nearing the end? Not the end of the world or even of mankind, but the end of the world as we know it? It only takes one lunatic on a poor nights sleep to start a global nuclear holocaust - that's the reality of the situation we're in. I believe there was a quote (And I'm paraphrasing) "I'm not sure what World War III will be fought with, but I'm positive that World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones." and I think there is some serious truth to this. Where is the world heading?
Going back to the protests for a moment, I understand that the vast majority of these stem from people wanting democracy rather than tyrannical rule - which is odd seeing as how anti-western the Muslim (apologies for a generalization, but the it is true that the majority of people over there are in fact Muslim) religion is.
Now, don't be confused. This isn't to try to start some "New World Order" discussion - nor am I trying to fuel or advocate some sort of "There is a hidden truth that seems to elude everyone and you're all fucked" type of discussion. If those are true, there isn't shit we can do about it and unnecessary stress and paranoia won't help. All I'm trying to say, or, should I say ask, is what the hell is going on? Why is all of this happening? Why now?
