National Review’s 2012 Predictions: Hilariously Wrong
Barack Obama will lose the U.S. presidential election in November. The GOP will win a record share of the non-Hispanic white vote.
Vladimir Putin will win the Russian presidential election in March. Among opposition parties, the Communists will poll exceptionally well.
The following things will get worse: public protests in advanced countries, inflation, weather, unemployment, Somali piracy, and the state finances of California, Illinois, New Jersey, and New York.
The following things will get better: e-book formats, firearm sales, political corruption, access to TV programs without TV sets, job opportunities for auditors, Islamic terrorism, North Dakota.
The following things will become less popular in the advanced world: free trade, mass immigration, welfare, foreign aid, abortion, college education, ethnic diversity, politicians, helping the U.S. fight open-ended wars of choice.
The following things will become more popular in the advanced world: in-sourcing, border controls, jails, family life, vocational training, ethnic disaggregation, entrepreneurs, minding your own national business.
One or more of the following canoes will arrive at the lip of Niagara: the euro, the North Korean government, the finances of a major U.S. state or municipality, the student-loan system, Eric Holder, book publishing, China’s banking system.
You can’t tell me that piece of writing doesn’t set off the racist warning bells, wtf is ethnic disaggregation?
