Reader comment on item: Two Decades of the Rushdie Rules
in response to reader comment: Sitting pretty

Submitted by Erich Wieger (United States), Oct 3, 2010 at 02:22

Thanks Ugri. "Sitting pretty" is one way to look at things, for now. If trends remain the same, though, pandemonium is what I fear is the ultimate outcome. Incompatible societies jostling together under one Government become ungovernable. The trajectories look very serious, and the pandemonium of civil violence may be inevitable. Bloody chaos is not a good heritage for our grand children. It would be better to look for preventative actions that pass on a brighter future.
