Apparently, the End Times are almost certainly due at the bus stop soon:
Soaring food, energy, and shelter inflation have led to what could be a new era of civil unrest worldwide. Pockets of unrest have been observed in Sri Lanka, Peru, Kenya, Ecuador, Iran, and Europe. New research forecasts a broader wave of discontent is just ahead.
“Only a significant reduction in global food and energy prices can arrest the negative global trend in civil unrest risk. Recession fears are mounting, and inflation is expected to be worse in 2023 than in 2022.”
Wow… I wonder if some giant, powerful nation could address both those issues simultaneously?
Naaahhhh they’re too busy rummaging in Melania Trump’s undies drawer.
And then there’s this little kettle coming to the boil:
Now, winter in Europe is rapidly approaching when homes particularly in northern Europe will need gas the most to keep their homes warm and one hopes the weather itself will be a mercifully temperate. As recession looms, the only thing overheating right now are prices. Unemployment will surely follow.
My fervent hope is that the popular response to this is to see politicians and bureaucrats dangling from lamp posts but sadly, that’s not gonna happen. More likely is that they’ll flee to safe havens, clutching suitcases full of our (looted) cash.
I’d take that outcome, now that I think of it.
But if you think all that’s bad, try this.
Aux barricades, mes amis!!!
