This has to be may all time favorite quiz since I started this series if only because there were so many daffy choices: Slate's “Choose Your Own Apocalypse.”
You get to pick up to five. It was not an easy choice, as none really captured the combination of kleptocracy and resistance to certain types of change that I think describes the ills to which our government tends. But, hey, it's just meaningless, so I picked somewhat seriously, “Peak Water” and “Peak Oil” and “Rising Sea Levels” and somewhat facetiously “Pax Sinica” and “Patriot Act” (based on the attached definition; I don't think the bill, while negative in important ways, is apocalyptically bad).
You are an anthropocentric pragmatist. You think the American citizenry controls its fate, and we won't screw up enough to destroy the human race. You'll know you're right when: Vigilantes along the Mexican border start a war over immigration; the United States has a socialist revolution.
Feel free to post your choices and outcomes below.
