@freddy What's the bad news? Is this dysfunctioning society going to keep going?

@kekcoin He predicted the chaose of 2020. To quote from the article:

> [Imagine] a huge ship headed directly for an iceberg: “If you have a discussion among the crew about which way to turn, you will not turn in time, and you hit the iceberg directly.” The past 10 years or so have been discussion. That sickening crunch you now hear—steel twisting, rivets popping—­­is the sound of the ship hitting the iceberg."
