Two and a Half Minutes to Midnight in the World of Today will be ongoing series of articles looking at issues that concern both our country and the world. The articles will show how everyday humanity moves closer to a possible self-destruction, as we have now officially entered the 6th mass extinction of Earth’s history. Our society today is nearing a possible major collapse on many different fronts. Some of these events include our never-ending and escalating wars and environmental problems that are straining our world’s resources today with little hope of improving. Our nation has unsustainable debt which is leading us over a cliff towards a possible economic failure that would make us envy the people that lived through the Great Depression. This series goal is to provide the information while not biasing it towards any side or agenda. This series will do this by providing only verifiable facts for you the reader to ingest, review and to draw your own conclusions.
