Will we reach Utopia



The current political situation worldwide is dire. It has become a possibility that the world will collapse in the near future, so rather than looking at the world as a Utopian dream could we see it as an apocalyptic wasteland?



Examples of these 'alternate' landscapes can be seen in media such as; "I am Legend", "Book of Eli", games such as "Fallout 3" and many more.
The film "I am Legend" focuses on a disease outbreak, which is an unlikely result, but the latter 2 focus on a post-nuclear world. With unstable countries such as Iran and North Korea obtaining nuclear weapons, making the rest of the world paranoid, the chances of nuclear war are reaching the levels of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.



However, do not fear as there is evidence to suggest that as a country obtains nuclear weapons they become more stable as anybody who doesn't have nuclear weapons
doesn't want to attack them and they know if they use them it could be the end of the world.

  1. Those are some really awesome pics , im hoping this kind of thing doesn't happen though , as much as i loved playing Fallout 3 i certainly wouldn't want to experience that kind of world for real.

  2. I agree with the notion that a country that is nuclear capable is more respected than those that aren't. If you look at India and Pakistan, back when they weren't nuclear capable no one wanted anything to do with them. Towards the end of the 20th century they managed to enrich uranium and one thing led to another. Now look at them, they are put on the map partly because of their arms.

    If Iran gets nukes then Zionist government of Israel wouldn't pose so much of a threat anymore as all it takes is a flick of a switch.

    P.S. make your images smaller :)
