Re: What happens if a Crisis or Fourth Turning ends poorly?

Historically, things tend to go very poorly for societies that end up on the losing end of a Crisis War. For a taste of what has happened before, read up on what life was like in Germany in the generation after Hitler died, or Japan after Hiroshima and Nagasaki, or in the South after the US Civil Wa...

Re: A crisis war with the Nomads in charge instead of the Prophets?

A generational crisis war is always bad, no matter who's in charge. I concur. The generational makeup at the beginning of a Crisis may color how it begins, but those distinctions become increasingly irrelevant as the Climax of the Crisis approaches. In the end, all generational roads eventually lea...

Re: A crisis war with the Nomads in charge instead of the Prophets?

I admit, when it comes to Colonial America, it does seem that not all the colonies were on the same timeline, though I haven't been able to deduce specifics. I believe that the New England were farthest into a crisis era, since they were the first to rebel. I have some thoughts on this. The earlies...

Re: The threat of China

Since a Crisis War tends to see the most terrible and devastating weapons used, this makes me wonder if we might not see strong AI (both online and in robotics) become the new "wonder weapon". It could go very bad for all of humanity if the technological singularity is born out of weapons ...

Re: North Korea can hit United States

North Korean ICBM can reach New York https://www.nextbigfuture.com/2017/07/north-koreas-latest-icbm-has-10400-kilometer-range-or-enough-to-reach-new-york.html That's scary, but I think that Kim isn't as crazy as he pretends. It's a show to say leave us alone. If North Korea is truly in a Crisis Era...

Re: Eastern Front

the group that wins the civil war takes power and then uses torture, massacres, genocide and atrocities during the Awakening era to keep from giving up power, reneging on promises of free elections made during the settlement of the civil war. The ACW may be an exception to this, John? Was the South...

Re: Eastern Front

What "other lists" are you talking about? I save everything. I have a copy of every email message I've sent and received since the 1980s. I've lost the ones from the 1970s because nothing reads DECtapes any more. So what lists are you referring to? There was a "Generation Lengths&quo...
