The world would be even more doomed than it is already. . .
But things will NOT continue as they are, because after the era, along with a sizable portion of the population, we're supposed to go into cleanup mode and a new so called 'golden age'; probably because the survivors will realise the old way didn't work, so. . .
However, there will always be the psychopath and the infernal idiot to lead the world down again. It's happened before, and it will happen again. . .for EVER!
Now I wish we could hurry up with that trip/reset.
