I think the US along with its Democratic Republic will be doing very well at the end of the 21st century. We will have stopped trying to be King of the World and be concentrating on our internal freedom and real wealth.

I really don't think it will continue as a free society. I think it will break up into three pieces and follow different poltical and government paths.

All of the chicken littles drive me crazy.

Crack a book, the issues we see today are not very different to the same arguments, discussions, debates, and situations of the past.

Our country has seen things much worse than what we see today. All of this panicing and chicken little mentality, especially in an effort to raise fear to promote one political view has got to stop.

Crack a history book.

It will survive but wil have a mcih lessor satndard of living for many that will shift to a lower class econmically has pweople adjust to conditions . That has been going no for quite awhile which is why teh incresing deparity between incomes how. More up0per middle class and more lower class people. Eventually people will adjust in coming gerations and the middle class will grow. it won't come from working for large companies at screwdriver type work tho JMIHO

So I take it you are fine with Singapore's laws regarding, firearms (as in they are pretty de facto illegal for civilians) and libel (aka criticism) of the ruling PAP party among other things?
