Personally, I think things have been much worse, than they are now. For example, Christians used to be fed to lions for the entertainment of Pagans and of course, to teach them a lesson. Furthermore, St. Paul, iirc, had to chastise The Church in Corinth for having orgies on the altar on Sunday mornings.
On the other hand, I do think The New World Order (a world empire built on U.S. firepower and international banking) is going to fail, because U.S. credit will run out and compound interest always leads to default. As the NWO fails, I do think there could be some major chaos, hopefully not though.
