I've seen this question pop up once or twice in preparedness-focused discussion forums. I don't believe I've seen the most bald-faced truth in reply though.
The world is widely recognized to be in a progressive state of relentless ruination today, not in any small part due to ongoing political and corporate manipulation. Few could argue that point today (at least without holding tongue firmly in cheek), though causes are still, I suppose, for some open to debate.
Regardless, when it comes right down to it, the worst possible eventuality is that nothing happens to jolt the train from its tracks and to ultimately reverse course and get us back to a world where common sense is king.
This is what keeps many of us awake at night.
