Re: Rank our biggest national threats
Posted by Henry R32 #3730 on Sun Mar 29 19:44:44 2020, in response to Rank our biggest national threats, posted by Easy on Sun Mar 29 16:13:04 2020.Currently (as in, this week):
(1) Pandemic. This has subsections:
(a) Social isolation triggered suicide / domestic violence
(b) Media generating fear and societal unrest
(c) China actively trying to undermine the west's response to position themselves better economically.
In the next few months:
(1) Economic unrest triggering riots and looting (already happening in Italy). This will force us down one of two equally bad paths.
(a) Crimes committed by the thousands of criminals released to de-crowd prisons.
(b) Right wing extremism dealing with the above [street militias]
Path 2: Martial Law
(2) Calls for socialism by the ignorant.
(3) Cold War with China.
I am not worried about international terrorism after ISIS issued a directive to not Jihad in Europe due to the virus. I assume since that article was written that directive has been expanded to the US.
