I have long pondered the direction of the our "western" society and its ultimate fate. I see I am not alone in this. A new book has crossed my horizon and I would have reviewed it here, save that someone better qualified has done it already. His review of the book;
The Coming Collapse of the American Republic can be found by following the link I've embedded. The book itself, while I found it heavy going in parts and dealing, as it does, with things I am familiar with only through news and TV reports, pretty much confirms my own feelings on a number of issues.
I certainly commend this to anyone writing for a 'future world' genre.
