Smacktle, me too. I've been saying ``this can't go on much longer'' for decades now.|
The end is near, until suddenly it's behind us. Germany in 1935 probably thought that thousand year reich talk was plausible - certainly there was no reason to think the end was near. After all, things were looking up economically, and Germany was the most civilized, most progressive country in the world. By 1945, the end was behind them, and they were bartering for cigarettes and potatoes in the ruins. By the time the end was upon them, it was far to late to prepare for it.
I'm guessing that the U.S. is a bit past the ``Germany, 1935'' stage.
