Just a reminder, I distinctly remember something being said about Fidel Castro and this event marking a swift change for the world starting with the United States.
There are most likely rough times ahead.
Look at it this way. The world has seen the U.S. lead in gluttony, greed, materialism, hatred, lust, and the others.
So to balance this out the world will see the U.S. reverberate and learn to balance these energies out. It is one big plan for learning so that there a finally a reasonably peaceful society after everything is resolved.
