By Guillaume Faye
The thesis of this publication is a terrifying one: our current worldwide civilisation will cave in inside of 20 years, and it really is too overdue to prevent it. we will regress to a 'New heart a long time' comparable to the autumn of the Roman Empire, purely even more harmful. For the 1st time within the entire of human historical past, yes 'dramatic lines', great crises and catastrophes of massive proportions - already tangible - have emerged. they're converging and should probably succeed in their zenith by way of 2020. as much as that point, as we've already been witnessing, their results will proceed to worsen, till a brink is reached. Guillaume Faye conscientiously examines those escalating crises one after the other: environmental harm and weather switch; the breakdown of a speculative and debt-ridden globalist economic system; the go back of world epidemics; the depletion of fossil fuels and of agricultural and fishing assets; the increase of mass immigration, terrorism and nuclear proliferation; the worsening of the rupture among Islam and the West; and the dramatic explosion of a inhabitants of the aged within the filthy rich nations - it all resulting in an unparalleled around the globe monetary recession, a rise in localised and doubtless large-scale armed conflicts...and possibly worse. nonetheless, Faye reminds us, we should always no longer provide in to pessimism: what we're experiencing isn't an apocalypse, yet a change of humanity. we would have reached the top of what the Hindu traditions consult with because the Kali Yuga, the 'age of iron' marked by means of materialism and selfishness, yet those that live to tell the tale the disaster and chaos will possibly construct a brand new and higher humanity...
