"You'll have a bright future, brighter than we can ever imagine!"
That's what they kept telling me as a child. Those words echoed in
my head as I witnessed the break out of yet another economic
crisis. A new bubble, started by the 2008 crisis… And an even
bigger burst. Now all I see is those words turning into ash as
riots and terrorist attacks become part of our everyday lives
without a glimmer of hope for a brighter future.
Life today? A mess. Continental Europe? Bankrupt. The US? Gone.
They left NATO years ago. Hell, I bet our troops wouldn’t be able
to protect us from a horde of Neanderthals in their current state.
And that new SAFE initiative? We'll see what their summit in March
brings. Something is brewing in Africa again and I doubt they can
set things right.It doesn’t make me feel safe at all. Personally,
I'd rather trust my local militia.
