Happy Friday, Here Is A Video About "The 4th Turning" That Should Scare The Shit Out Of You

If you're like me, a millennial, you probably took a big sigh of relief at the beginning of the summer. Businesses were opening back up. The chaos of 2020 was behind us. The beer was flowing like wine. We had events and crowds. Everything was, as Hank would say...gucci. 

Then...you open your phone and...

Cuba...

Afghanistan...

Ethiopia...

Ethiopia vs Egypt....

Haiti...

Americans involved with Haiti assassination plot...

Delta variant...

South Africa...

European floods...

Hurricane season...

Tensions with China over Hong Kong...

Tensions with China over Taiwan...

Tensions with Russia...

Hackers shutting down pipelines(and other businesses)

Inflations....

Migrant crisis...

The list goes on and on and on seemingly forever. It doesn't make sense. How can the entire world be legitimately falling apart all at the same time. It doesn't make sense until you watch the video above and realize that this is the cycle of things and we are in the SHIT now.

It is crazy what we've been through already as a generation. 9/11, long wars, terrorism, economic banking fraud/crisis of 2008, global pandemic, civil unrest, and now all the shit going on right now. I feel like things are both simultaneously horrible and also better than they've ever been from a perspective of technology/air conditioning/general ease of life. Just crazy how this video above(and probably the book but who has time for that) shows that history repeats itself and makes it seem like things are about to get worse before they get better. Just another 10 years or so of chaos and unrest. No biggie. We can handle that.
