How long until the next 'Fall of Rome'? Whatever/whoever is considered 'Rome', as of right now? Or maybe 'Rome' is the whole globe?

50 more years? 100? 200? 2,000?

I almost wish you'd not have asked! I had to think about this overnight. I believe we're collapsing now. This process might be slowed but I don't think it can be reversed without some supernatural intervention.

I put 'Will 'we' fall?' as the background text, because I'm not sure who 'we' are. Or if there is a we, are all going to fall?

I think we're all falling.
Sorry.

I define the current society as one that is ruled a large part by the 'deep state' and that it has already been largely overthrown we are just waiting for some of the results of that.

History repeats itself and this would be the fall of Carthage perhaps not Rome itself.

Not long I shouldn't think. Months.

Difficult, if not impossible to put a time frame on it.

It's taken millions of years to build upto this state, & might take a bit of time to shut down, but eventually I think it'll happen.

Although the whole system is built to endure, I think humans will get in the way & screw it up. Looks like they're not up to it, at least for the time being. Perhaps because humans think in an individual ways & not for the good of all (humans, animals, the planet).

This is not a specific answer! Quite the contrary. Oh well, today is  Friday...

Suggested reading: Antonio Damasio on the Strange Order of Things. (But I'm only at the beginning of the book... a long time before the downfall.)
