3. History is repeating itself.

The world, especially here in the US, is looking more and more like it did prior to The New Deal--when tycoon/tyrants like Henry Ford even had workers shot and beaten for striking. What changed was through the depression everything collapsed and was rebuilt by FDR. We're definitely going back to that...the only difference is we don't have the conditions we had back then to help pull us out of the ditch.

I believe in our lifetimes, the USA will look more like Mexico--workers work for very low wages, no regulations, rights, etc, the rich will thrive while crime runs rampant.
