America ‘Under the Dome’: Who dies in food wars?:Austerity, wars, population control in the coming age

Horror master Stephen King’s “Under the Dome” is a vision of America’s future. Trapped in a massive bubble world warning us to wake up. Get into action. Forget today’s market gurus predicting 40% stock crashes. King’s “Dome” sees how our 21st century America has become a critical mass of bubbles of our own making, guaranteed to self-destruct, unless we listen to the warnings:
Big Jim, the town mayor with a god-complex, secretly develops a solution with a science teacher: Reduce town population. As food, water and other supplies get scarcer at restaurants, gas stations, a secret alliance between religion and science to conserve resources, but also eliminate people … yes, King’s captured the global dilemma “Under the Dome” in little Chester’s Mill, solving problems today’s world leaders deny, minimize, and just keep putting off, probably till too late.
Meanwhile, the real world’s dome of bubbles just keeps blowing bigger and bigger into an unstable explosive critical mass … Limited resources are rapidly vanishing under our global dome … Food scarcity increases worldwide … Political, religious, business leaders all silent about the taboo topic of controlling the world’s out-of-control population growth … silence … while the clock keeps ticking.
Yes, silence on long-term big-bubble issues is deafening … drowned out in the relentless noise on trending social media, by their all-consuming hypnotic materialism, by the relentless drive for earnings by big banks, big oil, big lobbying, big government and myopic, egocentric, small-minded politicians with god-complexes bigger than Big Jim’s.
