Mad Max: Suddenly the world is on the verge of collapse again – and the mad will rise to the occasion

August 2014CIVILIZATION – Dystopian world – the collapse of civilization, the theme of the End of the World is suddenly popular again, as a growing list of insurmountable problems across the globe are beginning to stage themselves for the ultimate global 1-2-3 catastrophic punch. This time it’s a much different dilemma than any 1980s science fiction cinematic scenarios about a world-end event. It’s real, and all the marbles in the game are at stake. Seven billion human lives are suspended in the balances awaiting the outcome for a list of present-day threats to subside. Russia is breathing down the neck of Ukraine, threatening an invasion that could ignite a new cold war. China is growing increasingly restless in Asia, and is beginning to torment its neighbors for new territory. The Arab Spring has dethroned many monarchies in the Middle East – leaving radical new regimes in their wake that have sworn to destroy America and Israel. Syria, Egypt, Afghanistan, Libya, and Iraq are unraveling. ISIS is threatened to destroy Israel, and set up an Islamic Caliphate in Iraq. The U.S. has responded with air-strikes and another military advisory deployment. Iran is going nuclear. Saudi Arabia says it wants nukes and is willing to pay whatever price it takes to obtain them. Pakistan is becoming a boiling pot of Islamic extremism. Did I mention it has the largest nuclear arsenal in the East? God forbid that country should collapse and nuclear weapons fall into the hands of Islamic extremists. Argentina has already collapsed on its sovereign debt – a host of other Latin American countries could follow its lead. The list of troubled banks is increasing across Europe. Financial experts warn another global financial panic is just around the corner, as stock markets reenact the glee ride of the 1920s before the Market Crash of 1929, which led to the Great Depression. MERS, Ebola, H7N9, Bubonic Plague, and the Hantavirus are revived, stronger than ever, and are on a rampage in many parts of the world.

Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth movie in the franchise. Shot without Mel Gibson, Mad Max: Fury Road looks like a cross between a reboot and (possibly) a sequel in some way. Mad Max (1979), Mad Max II/Mad Max: The Road Warrior (1981) and Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome (1985) brought the post apocalyptic universe to millions and catapulted Mel Gibson into super-stardom.  -Alvin Conway (c) 2014

    Well, I think it was as accurate to the point on how people will act in a situation as this.
    And decent people will not be able to survive alone.
