Hindsight

Andy Serwer has written a fascinating and disturbing article on Time.com detailing America’s turmoil in the 2000’s, or what he terms the “Decade from Hell.”

As I was reading account after account of “What could be worse?!” scenarios, I couldn’t help but recall both Jared Diamond’s Collapse and the last line spoken by Fox Mulder in the series finale of The X-Files in 2002.

Sure, maybe there’s hope, but should we maybe start adjusting to life in this new world order? Suddenly all those post-apocalyptic scenarios envisioned by Children of Men and even Zombieland don’t seem so far-fetched anymore.
