Many of you have probably both read and seen the work of activists such as Noam Chomsky, Chris Hedges, Naomi Klein, Michael Moore, etc. They are all wonderful people who have contributed with many good ideas and useful analyzes.
I will now in this post draw attention to one that also deserves attention: The very knowlegable Johan Galtung.
Johan Galtung is from my home country, Norway. He is a Sociologist and the founder of peace and conflict research. In 1993 Galtung Founded the international "Transcend" network for peace and development.
Galtung has spent much of his time studying various empires, both previous ones and current, and their impact on society.
In connection with his research on conflict, war and empires, he has also launched the predictions of the future fate of empires. In 1980 he predicted that the Soviet empire would collapse within 10 years - exactly what happened. In 2001 he predicted that the American empire would collapse by 2020. So we'll have to see if he´ll be right on that one as well.
