Here's a fairly short article from Forbes -- a pretty conservative magazine. Apparently even the moneyed class is starting to realize that the current state of our economy is unsustainable. Their suggestions for fixing it, however, are amusing, but probably not viable.

short article on how dire our situation is. I think there is some truth to the idea that most of what you hear is sticking with the most optimistic estimates of when we are doomed.

This is a bit scary, but, as we slip into fascism, this is the kind of thing that will happen as people become the type of scared creatures who need a strongman to tell them what to do. Children who are raised with a lot of fear, remain more sensitive to fear all their lives. People who are more fearful, tend to be more conservative, more inclined to be authoritarian followers, more inclined to be tribal and paranoid. They don't like actual freedom, it's too scary, too many decisions to make on your own.
This article is about the new "Christian" state some people want to make. I am reading stuff into it, but it's quite likely to really be there.
