You had a good point about the trend, and events being connected. Then you took it too far, justifying social trends with a past epidemic and a hypothetical dystopia. You can’t apply cherry-picked events from the past and call it the future. We now live in a different global and digital society, with lots of trade dependencies. We have the EU, Nato, the UN, and there isn’t any suppressed human urge for destruction, or inherent “destruction periods”. There’s just fear, and fear mongering, leading to periods of instability. Your “whole” picture is just another perspective and you’re part of the fear mongers. http://freakonomics.com/podcast/new-freakonomics-radio-podcast-the-folly-of-prediction/ http://freakonomics.com/podcast/how-to-be-less-terrible-at-predicting-the-future-a-new-freakonomics-radio-podcast/
