 A Commentary on Global Scenarios Extract 
From the scenario simulation and projection, one thing can be ascertained with clarity; it is anongoing funnelling process of factors affecting the stability of the nation-state.The compounded effects of debt, famine, crop failure, recession, high energy prices, andrapid consumption of resources bracing disaster after disaster lead to the destruction of thestable foundations of nation-states. The apparent goal is to produce exhausted, decapitalised,impoverished, worn-out, crime-ridden, low productivity, stagnant national economies.The over all goal of these confluent factors produces an array of failed states, leaving a globalpower vacuum, which provides the space for a new power structure to emerge from theapparent chaos. A potential world government by federating and pooling resources and thussovereignties to solve the question of instability and failure to meet roles left by the failedstates. The space needed for an organisation such as the United Nations (UN) to take root.A failed state or states would have the following characteristics:“A
failed state
is astateperceived as having failed at some of the basic conditions andresponsibilities of asovereigngovernment. In order to make this definition more precise, thefollowing attributes, proposed by theFund for Peace, are often used to characterize a failedstate:
 
loss of control of its territory, or of themonopoly on the legitimate use of physical force therein,
 
erosion of legitimate authority to make collective decisions,
 
an inability to provide public services, and
 
an inability to interact with other states as a full member of theinternational community.
Often a failed state is characterized by social, political, and/or economic failure.Common characteristics of a
 failing state
include a central government so weak or ineffectivethat it has little practical control over much of its territory; non-provision of public services;widespread corruption and criminality; refugees and involuntary movement of populations;and sharp economic decline.
 You can read the full the definition of this emerging state form here.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Failed_state Key prerogatives are the rapid and long term re-stabilisation of nation-states and prevent thecausal factors from re-occurring. A determined, realistic hardening of the nation-states isdemanded from multiple aspects, be that economic, social, ethnic, political and technologicalto ensure the state is not further eroded and consumed by the destabilisation factors shown

below in the scenario projections. The crises have the overall effect to drain resources tillexhausted, a different approach is required to manage the disasters.A pragmatic and objective strategic will be needed to effect stabilisation of the nation-statesto resemble geopolitical order. The key drivers must be isolated in regards to the functioningof the nation-based economies. Factors undermining economic growth with debt, resourceused poor allocation of resources and political barriers:Key factors are;1.
 
Energy Use: how energy is produced, distributed and used.2.
 
Financial System: Type of financial system, currency, interest and debt, control andpower thereof. Overhaul and innovation may be required to reset damaged financialsystem.3.
 
Allocation of resources: how effective is the signalling system in providing accurateinformation and indicative leadership to apply the policies4.
 
Capacity to defend policies from disruptive forces, players and other factors.5.
 
Support and commitment from the population for the corrective policies in thetransition to re-stabilisation.See here for details on Systems Theoryhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Systems_Theory
