The world is going into a new world order of disorder. On one side you have the tyrannical power elite with all the money and weapons and on the other side you have the oppressed, the Marxist’s and the Islamist’s. No matter which of these end up in power the outcome will be the attempted destruction of the opposition. I think the world is heading into a great time of disorder. What you have been seeing so far is in the Middle East and North Africa is just act one of a long drama.
Even if many of these nations now in turmoil somehow achieve Democracy, that Democracy will just become a tyranny of the majority with the majority imposing Islamic law, Socialism or Fascism on everyone. So I am afraid that there will be no happy ending to the insurrections that we are now starting to see take place all over the world.
Iran and Marxists have obviously played a part in instigating this surge of popularist uprisings in many nations. But, the beast that they loosed may end up also biting them in the butt.
It will be interesting to see if the tyrants of Iran that have been fostering some of these uprisings will even survive the riots that they will bring on their own heads now that they have opened Pandora’s box. My understanding of Bible prophecy tells me these leaders will not survive. That is why I think Iran is not involved in the war of Psalm 83 even though that war looks quite imminent. The only real question I have is, do the people in Iran overthrow the tyrants of Iran before the bombing or after the bombing?
The Twelver’s now running Iran might think that they are bringing about an Islamic caliphate by stirring up all this trouble in the Middle East, but in reality those that now control Iran will never become the benefactors of any Islamic revolution. They are now living on borrowed time.
Its not just Islam that will see dishevel and disorder. The Socialist nations will also see popularist uprisings. I think we will soon see this in Cuba, Venezuela and N. Korea. Even capitalist progressive nations like the United States will not be immune to civil disorder. The polarization and demonstrations that is now happening in Wisconsin over teacher jobs, pay and benefits is only the start of civil upheaval that will spread all over this nation when state and local governments make cuts. Cuts in spending must be made, but the people effected by the cuts will soon be running in the streets to prevent them. The only alternative for the state and local governments is to raise taxes but that will cause more loss of jobs and a taxpayer revolt. So the end result is much the same.
If the Republicans get their way they will cut jobs, pay and entitlements and then the Democrats will instigate labor rallies that will lead to riots and demand that what they lost be reinstated. If the left prevails there will be insane inflation and a collapse of our economy and that will also bring civil disorder and riots in the streets. We might get a little preview of what is coming if the government actually shuts down next month and entitlement checks and services stop coming because the Democrats and the Republicans cannot agree on a budget to fund government.
It looks like we are heading for two years of gridlock in national government, yet the state governments have to make the cuts now or raise taxes now. So there will be a battle between the taxpayers that want to make cuts and the state and local governments employees that want their jobs and benefits. We have just seen the first example of that demonstrated in Wisconsin. Many other states budgets are in worse shape.
Europe is also heading into turmoil because they have a duel deadly problem. Socialism and Islamic culture and Islamic sponsored terrorism makes upheaval in Europe certain. The right wing backlash is just waiting for a major terrorist event or economic reality. This right wing backlash is going to come suddenly and as it gains traction it will get every bit as brutal as the Nazi’s. Many in Europe are not prepared for a huge rise in right wing nationalism but It is coming as sure as night follows day. People think the world has become more civilized and tolerant in the last 70 year but human nature does not change. Many movements start with good intentions until evil takes over.
Don’t think that China will escape this period of insurrections unscathed either. When much of the rest of the world is in turmoil they are not going to be buying Chinese stuff. How does China keep 1.4 billion people satiated when they are stuck in cities, no longer have jobs and no longer have cheep food?
All this terminal is going to have a negative effect on the world economy. Oil prices are now the highest in two years and they will go much higher if oil production and shipping is disrupted because of the insurrections. It will end any economic recovery in the world and lead to debt defaults in Europe. We already know that raw food prices are doubling because of crop failures. That certainly will cause riots in many poor nations.
When all these people are running in the streets and not working they are not being productive and adding to their GDP’s. This will have a negative impact on the world economy. We could be back into recession before you know it.
The Bible tells us that there is a time for peace and a time for war. Everything seems to run in cycles on earth. We have now entered a time of great disorder and many will die. Will the national insurrections bring about better conditions on earth or will it polarize people into ideologies and factions and cause them to follow narcissist demigods that tell them the things they want to hear? History tells us the latter will happen.
We have seen it before. We have seen it in Germany and Japan in World War II. We have seen it in Russia, N Korea and China and Laos where the Communists killed almost 200 million people in their own nations. We saw it in central America and Africa. Now once again we see the Marxists and Islamist’s are setting the stage for conflicts between conflicting worldviews. This time all these conflicting worldviews will insure that most nations of the world will be involved in the disorder and conflict.
Africa will not escape the internal conflicts they continue all over the continent. The whole Middle East will continue in turmoil. The Far East is heading for trouble because of the hated between Pakistan and India. China, Japan and the Korea’s will have their own conflicts over turf and face. Latin America is becoming increasing unstable thanks once again to rising Marxism and also the drug criminals. The United States is becoming increasing polarized between Left and Right ideologies and it has a debt bomb that cannot be defused. Europe in on the brink of social and economic breakdown because of debt and Islam. Russia is a KGB run thuggery. Anyway you look at it, the world does not have a bright outlook.
As much as some like to think that we are entering into a new world order of civilized managed world government, in reality it appears that globalization has failed and that there will first be a new world disorder before any new world order will rise. Riots and civil insurrections will soon be occurring all over the world, and as new tyrants rise and form new axis of power you can be certain that it will lead to major world wars not very far down the line.
