“History and societies to not crawl. They make jumps. They go from fracture to fracture, with a few vibrations in between.”
Nassim Taleb- The Black Swan
What we see unfolding before us is a fracture in history. When the self organized system is pushed beyond its boundary conditions into chaos and (hopefully) reorganization. I saw a Bloomberg article mentioning that $7.4 trillion had been pumped into the economic system during the course of this firefight… The shock front of this economic blast is sure to alter our course. It remains to be seen what the magnitude and direction this historical vector will take.
Watch for bold moves by competitors and rivals to US power in the coming years. They smell blood and fear and the world really can be quite a dangerous place.
