Slate is doing a series this week on the end of America, and how and when it could possibly happen. From climate catastrophes to evil despots, there are various possibilities, though the contributors admit America’s demise is not likely (at least not within the next 100 years).
That said, I imagine this little exercise will prove to be controversial in some circles. But do not let that stop you from checking out the articles. It is meant to be thought-provoking, and that is always good, right?
