Convergence of Catastrophes

Guillaume Faye


The thesis of this publication is a terrifying one: our current international civilisation will cave in inside of 20 years, and it really is too overdue to prevent it. we will regress to a 'New heart a long time' resembling the autumn of the Roman Empire, basically even more damaging. For the 1st time within the complete of human heritage, sure 'dramatic lines', monstrous crises and catastrophes of monstrous proportions - already tangible - have emerged. they're converging and may probably succeed in their zenith by means of 2020. as much as that point, as we now have already been witnessing, their results will proceed to worsen, until eventually a verge of collapse is reached. Guillaume Faye conscientiously examines those escalating crises one after the other: environmental harm and weather switch; the breakdown of a speculative and debt-ridden globalist economic climate; the go back of worldwide epidemics; the depletion of fossil fuels and of agricultural and fishing assets; the increase of mass immigration, terrorism and nuclear proliferation; the worsening of the rupture among Islam and the West; and the dramatic explosion of a inhabitants of the aged within the prosperous nations - it all resulting in an extraordinary world wide monetary recession, a rise in localised and doubtless large-scale armed conflicts...and possibly worse. nonetheless, Faye reminds us, we must always now not supply in to pessimism: what we're experiencing isn't an apocalypse, yet a change of humanity. we'd have reached the tip of what the Hindu traditions seek advice from because the Kali Yuga, the 'age of iron' marked by way of materialism and selfishness, yet those that continue to exist the disaster and chaos will possibly construct a brand new and higher humanity...
