Well, I was wrong about the US election. Bush will be an extreme president in his second term, beyond anything we have seen so far. He'll damage the US economy to benefit his own social circle, pursue regressive social policies, and prosecute new and nasty wars. My selfish hope is that cocooned in Europe and Australasia, or by our social networks in the US, my friends and I will be protected from all of this.

I think my friends are wrong in their prediction that the apparatus of democracy will be dismantled in the US. Of course, the end of American democracy isn't even the worst that could happen. The worst is a devastating global war. Again, I don't think it will come to that.
