A whole lot of stuff happened this year. As in, more than normal. I thought I'd go over what I thought are some things that will be talked about in the history books someday.
The UK decides to leave the EU. Financially it's not looking like a good decision and it's looking like its going to be the political equivalent of a bad divorce.
The Republican party catches fire and the Democratic party starts to crack
The Republican Party has fractured and it's not looking like it can be fixed. Now there are idiots out there who believe this means the Democrats win. HOWEVER, the cracks in the Democratic party are showing. Then add in the fact that rhetoric of each party is so heavily built around making sure that the other party doesn't win. How are they going to fare against what comes next? Which leads to...
Rise of a Third Party
More Americans are now considering third party candidates. The largest rising political affiliation being Independent. There is little doubt in my mind that in 40 years, a third party will have risen.
Americans show that they are now willing to consider a Democratic Socialist
Ten years ago this wouldn't have been the case but times are changing and in forty years chances are we will have more politicians like that, however at the same time.
Rise of the Right Wing in Europe
Europe is turning right and what should be very concerning is that a lot of these groups tend to have a lot in common with the Alt-Right. Which brings me to.
Rise of the Global Alt-Right
Donald Trump and Marine La Pen are just the beginning; this is going to continue. God have mercy.
U.S. and China Ratify the Paris accords
About damn fucking time, isn't it? Hurrah for the planet!
The Middle East is getting worse
Shit has hit the fan.
I'd like to leave you with this music video,
