A decade ago, Peter Turchin, a researcher at the University of Connecticut, said 2020 was going to be a messy year. Now, he’s said that even though it’s already been difficult, it isn’t nearly as bad as it can get.
Turchin thinks the social upheaval is still to come, and it’ll be about the dramatic erosion of the middle class (done intentionally with the lockdowns) as money was given to wealthy elitists in large amounts with little left for the regular worker. In 2010, he predicted on Nature.com that the United States would endure major social upheaval beginning around 2020.
