Re: <nettime> [spectre] the EU's first rogue state

The imperial power transition was never smooth (so far), usually it takes few centuries of dark ages. Even if everything these days is accelerated 10X, we're still looking at several decades of deep s*it.

The interesting speculation would be: what is the best way for the American Empire to fall? The most likely way is a limited nuclear war where most of nuclear weapons facilities are taken out and global population halved, but that's rather unappealing. Can it fall so that Twitter, Google and Facebook survive?
