Canadian Think Tank Chief: US Could Collapse

Here is more from CNN:

Political scientist Thomas Homer-Dixon -- the executive director of the Cascade Institute, which focuses on ways to address threats to society -- penned a powerful op-ed in Canada's "Globe and Mail" warning that "by 2025, American democracy could collapse, causing extreme domestic political instability, including widespread civil violence."  He adds that "by 2030, if not sooner, the country could be governed by a right-wing dictatorship."


The Cascade Institute, which studies severe global stresses on the Earth such as environmental, economic, political, and technological, was founded in Jan. 2020 and is located at Royal Roads University in British Columbia. 

It is different from the similarly-named Cascade Policy Institute, a think tank based in Oregon that was founded in 1991.
