While I talk a lot about there may be a civil war, I believe we’re going to just give up and become an autocracy. Which leads me to wonder how that autocracy may ultimately come to an end.
In this scenario, while we drift through autocratic reign for decades, eventually, the regime grows too extreme — probably in the South — and, ultimately, the whole thing grows so unstable that it collapses in on itself. Sometime, maybe 40 or 50 years from now, a new American Republic is born.
In this scenario, we reach something of a “Soft Singularity” because of Elon Musk and the whole globe’s economy grows unstable that our autocracy collapses and something new takes its place. We still have to put up with autocracy for decades, though.
Global Climate Change
In this scenario, the United States is something akin to a Russian political clone for generations until Florida sinks into the sea and that causes enough political chaos that a new Republic is founded.
The point remains — we’re fucked. Get out of the country if you can.
