Political institutions have been losing their credibility for quite some time. We are heading to oblivion, but I think the way leads though anarchy. At lest according The Atlantic's Robert Kaplan's article from 1994
, which describes the effect of climate change on social order---at first considered controversial, but the future proved him right. The anarchy may change the course of things and save us.
Anyway, I guess it's a perfect time to not to worry and be happy.
