Is world war three coming?

While some may well find it silly, I think this article is worth flagging up. It argues that the future predicted by Star Trek seems, roughly speaking, to be coming true. Trek canon states that, before the space-faring utopia it depicts comes about, humanity will go through a catastrophic third world war in which six hundred million people die. That is almost exactly what the world seems to be now gearing itself up for; as pessimistic as it sounds, with the inauguration of that deranged idiot yesterday, on top of brexit and the growth of hard-line nationalism, I cannot help thinking that humanity is now heading for a very bad place. At least we trekkies have Roddenberry's vision of the future to klingon to - the hope that humanity will come out the other end of armageddon united, tolerant and ready to explore the galaxy together.
