...With infrastructure vulnerabilities, economic dependencies, and some other extreme stress event (earthquake, volcano, etc.) to be named later by fate, into a perfect storm of catastrophe?
It's impossible to say, of course, but it is certainly going to happen at some point in the future; that's the whole point of Murphy's Law: That if something can happen, it will eventually. And the fact of the matter remains that, not only has the current economic model been significantly responsible for putting us in the state of extreme stress that we are in now, it is also unbelievably incapable of responding to it; essentially because it is one of the dominoes that will fall in such a cascade of interlinked systems. No one will be able to do much of anything about it because the money system we're so dependent on now will vanish in an instant; leaving us with the prospect of reorganizing in the middle of chaos writ large.
Do you think it will matter then, whether it is a complete idiot, or someone simply compromised by the system of "Big Money," who finally resides in the White House?
Anything is possible of course, and maybe there might be a marginal difference, but I don't see it being much of a significant probability.
