Things are growing eerily familiar—from an historical perspective, at least. A bad man with a grudge and an inner circle of hardliners is perpetrating evil in Eastern Europe, while various economies around the world are struggling with woes like a lingering pandemic, inflation, ferocious weather, various shortages, political unrest, etc. It seems like a perfect recipe for the war in Ukraine to become a wider conflict. A perverse unifier.
Ok, a world war.
Nothing like a war to snap someone out of an economic funk or a political haze, right? Except this time around, our placement between two oceans isn’t gonna protect us. They almost didn’t last time. This time they won’t. Happy Fall, Happy Thanksgiving, and Merry bleeping Christmas, everybody.
