The Road Ahead – 2018

I am so bad at prognostication, that I won’t really try to tell you what WILL happen. The best that I can do is describe the threats. These threats have been looming larger and larger with each passing year. And, some of them are new.

Please treat these seriously.

My hope is that we will have another year where we successfully dodge the bullets being fired at us. But, there is a limit to how often we can do that.

Will we run out of ‘luck’ in 2018?

2017 Hits

Of all the years that I’ve been writing articles, I believe that 2017 is the most important. And, I’ve been writing since the mid ’90s. Only time will tell, whether I’m right (and write). And, 2018 might be even MORE momentous.

However, we’ll deal with 2018 later. Right now, we need to look back at this past year and examine what was important. But, I want to do that a bit differently than I normally do, at this time of year.

I want to look at the articles that YOU thought were important, and a few that I thought to be important.

The System is Dying

The current, high tech civilization started dying a little over ten years ago. What began in the 1800s, races towards an inglorious end and the death of billions of people. And, you know nothing about this, because our dear leaders do not want you to know.

In fact, these same ‘dear leaders’ undoubtedly tell themselves that our fantastic empire will continue, that nothing can shake this great ship as it travels into the night. But, not all is as it seems, and that jolt you felt in 2008 was the same kind of iceberg that sank the unsinkable Titanic.

As our system dies, will you be ready for this?

Get Wisdom or Die

One of my many faults is my lack of patience with fools and foolishness. There just isn’t enough time to fix a fool, and I don’t have the energy for it. The only thing that I can do is point out the fools, so that the wise don’t get tarnished by their message. And yes, fools have a message, and they want you to buy it.

The only defense against a fool is wisdom. Some think that knowledge is the key, but it’s not. Knowledge is just an input to wisdom.

And, without wisdom, you have no hope for survival as our system dies.

Houston Tipping Point?

The big news, this past week, has been Hurricane Harvey and the disaster inflicted upon Houston. The question in my mind – aside from my concern about the immediate suffering – is, what will happen to the economy and then the rest of the world? This is a very big deal, and we will only find out the answer to this question over the next weeks and months.

Pray for all who suffer, that the damage will be fixed with all due speed and that the people can get back to work. Otherwise, we’re all in a lot of trouble.
