The world is awash in idiots and too many of them are in government and too many of them are in leadership positions. The financial crisis which the world is being overwhelmed by is entirely the making of the those idiots.
The world is awash in morons who can't, won't take care of themselves and expect others to come to their aid when their irresponsible actions get them into trouble.
With idiots minding the morons the world's population is faced with economic and social collapse because eventually the idiots will print enough money to make it worthless and the morons are going continue to expect something for nothing. The remaining few who are intelligent and responsible will be overcome and decimated and no amount of innovation will overcome the idiocy.
All the rest of us can do is deal with the uncertainty and try to prepare for the pending chaos. And unfortunately when everything resets either step forward or travel the same path yet again.
