Hi Everyone. I am a long-time reader here and a very occasional poster. I have had an interest in geopolitics and world history for about 20 years or so, and I find this site to be a great source for geopolitical information. Lately I've been suffering from fear and anxiety surrounding world events and where I see us heading. I worry excessively about the dollar collapsing, the end of the USA, the possibility of Russia/China teaming up and obliterating or invading us, etc. Some websites/tweets etc have me pretty convinced that we're (USA) not going to make it past this summer, that the other big players in the world have achieved military superiority over us, that the end is nigh, and that it's all pretty hopeless. I was told that this is due to doomscrolling - a term I had not heard before, but it makes sense. My question though is - are things really as dire as some of these websites present it to be? Thanks for reading this.
