You Can Only Put So Many Rats In A Cage Before They Go Crazy And Start Killing Each Other Off

The Earth has become a sort of human rat cage in which conditions are radically deteriorating as the population at once reaches toward critical mass. With global warming sliding into high gear — triggering droughts and increased fires in some places and monsoon rains, hurricanes and floods in other regions and wars devastate entire cites — living space for humanity is rapidly contracting.

As we can see wars and drought are pushing the populations of the Middle East and Africa into Europe while hurricanes devastating the Caribbean and political unrest in South America will soon begin driving folks in these regions into North America. In fact one can blame the Trump fiasco in this country on America’s human rats going a little crazy already as they sense the world wide upheaval headed their way, even if by some miracle the world’s enormous stockpile of nukes fails to be trigger for a little while longer.

On the bright side perhaps all those near abandon towns in mid America might once again boom as folks search for living space. Oh, never mind, increased tornado activity on the Great Plains will likely nix that possibility — darn.
