Here's my prediction.
Over the next ten years, the Western public's confidence in democratic government by either or any side or party will erode to the point where civil unrest will become a major issue. This will feed into the hands of the wingnuts, some of whom are already moving their parties in that direction at full speed. Add the financial collapse, global warming, swine flu and whatnot, and you have the perfect environment for hordes of angry mobs marching through the streets.
Either that, or Bush and Cheney will be in jail.
The middle path is that everything just carries on as normal, the pretence that our economic system is fine becomes self-fulfilling, and greed over-rides everything in sight. For another decade at least.
