that IF we all agree on what we consider "civilization" (see moyomongoose reply,it already shows how subtle the concept of civilization is)

We've had eschatological fantasies ever since man evolved from non-human primates. Nothing ever gets destroyed. It will only change form.

Civilization will not go down, because it has always been a shithole for many. Just open a history book. "Glorious" old times were glorious for those in power. There is no such thing as objectively glorious good times. Things will always be imperfect. If anything, the quality of life has been increasing. The end will come once the sun expands into a red giant and gets out of the main sequence. The Earth will be vaporized, and with it, all of our notions of civilization and bullshit. Even if we escape into other star systems and build colonies in other planets, the universe might die a cold death, ending with a bunch of black holes which will themselves radiate themselves away into low frequency photons, which is one of the few particle types that will survive.

In the year 2100, I'm fairly confident China will still be China. Japan will still be Japan. India will still be India. Even Russia will endure. Canada, USA, Great Britain, Australia, Germany, France, Italy, etc...yeah, I think we're fucked.

Already know the US is fucked lol I'll give it some time before the rest of the world gets sick of us to the point they turn the USA and all near by into a parking lot... Those in power are stupid screw ups and out of the rest of us most just want to follow like cattle. It's really sicking but when someone who isn't cattle wants to do something they're branded a terrorist. Many of them do it wrong but still.

i think the world in general is mismanaged. just the idea of trying to get a leader to represent the people in the first place is kind of doomed to fail. add to that centuries of establishing a system which barely works and a handful of people with absolute authority over the law and important things like a countries money and no wonder we're in such a mess.

" Storm described what the light beings told him concerning the way things will be on Earth in about 2185.
He asked the light beings the question, "Will the United States be the leader of the world in this change?"
The light beings replied, "The United States has been given the opportunity to be the teacher for the world, but much is expected of those to whom much has been given. The United States has been given more of everything than any country in the history of the world and it has failed to be generous with the gifts.
"If the United States continues to exploit the rest of the world by greedily consuming the world's resources, the United States will have God's blessing withdrawn.
"Your country will collapse economically which will result in civil chaos. Because of the greedy nature of the people, you will have people killing people for a cup of gasoline.
"The world will watch in horror as your country is obliterated by strife. The rest of the world will not intervene because they have been victims of your exploitation. They will welcome the annihilation of such selfish people.
"The United States must change immediately and become the teachers of goodness and generosity to the rest of the world.
"Today the United States is the primary merchant of war and the culture of violence that you export to the world. This will come to an end because you have the seeds of your own destruction within you. Either you will destroy yourselves or God will bring it to an end if there isn't a change."

I'm old enough to know people have been saying "civilization is about to collapse" for as almost long as civilization has existed.

I'm afraid that this might actually be true with how things are going.
