The Fracturing

JOURNAL: A Map that Sums it Up

If you want to glimpse the future of Iraq (our
current headliner) in ten years; go no further
than a map of Colombia. This map depicts the
division of the country by group: the FARC
(yellow), the ELN (green hatch), the AUC
(multiple paramilitaries in orange), and the
government (what's left). Each group is fueled
(from global sources) by a combination of drugs,
oil, or a nation-state sponsorship.

Just an advance look at what all nation states
will eventually morph to...and even much further
disintegration than is seen here...and fast. Much
faster than almost anyone realizes, as in a

Decentralization in all things is on the way.

The Institution/Top Down Folks will be found
grossly wanting.
