America's Decline: 12/8/2015 05:34:39

Level 56
In the next hundred years the United States will be much much different than it is now. It will start to decline faster when USA participates in any war. Why? Because 66% of the population can not participate in training for the wars. Cut this number in half because Men are who mostly serve in war which leave you to 16% of people who are fit or slim. This is not counting those who are under 18 nor those older than 35. What will these fit soldiers think when they come back risking their lives and see these obese monsters. Any scenario that where the fit die and the unfit survive is not nature. There's something bound to happen in these thoughts of the soldiers.

How long is it until this happens?
Will they consider sending unfit trainees? How will they feed them, motivate them?
Will these soldiers flee, leaving the country unarmed?

*I should add that there are NO OBESE scientists.*
Which leads to the question that either they will get tired of innovating for these people or they will exploit them, by selling them these things.
*Think about it, All these products that they sell claiming to make you lose weight*

Also obese people cannot riot, they may protest but can easily be controlled by armed soldiers because they just can't be active for too long.

This was not a rant, this is just my though of what will be America's Decline

The US will most likely retain its Superpower Status for 100-200 Years. By that time, it would have developed Lunar, Martian, and possibly Asteroid Colonies. China would be a Superpower at that point also so a Cold War might happen and Fallout might too

You still can't deny obesity being a problem

If they do get rid of obesity it means getting rid of these big corporations, which means losing economic power or either freedom, to keep them from gaining weight

We also said that for the USSR, Germany, Britain, France or Japan now see the results of it X)

Btw in 100-200 years not only China will emerge, I believe the world will be much more in a multipolar configuration. I also believe China may be on track to overtake the U.S. as the world's biggest power in likely 20 years only (of course depending on China being able to keep its growth and also become a advanced and culturally dominant society which is not yet the case).

Predicting world powers in 100-200 years time is near impossible. The predictions for 50 years times are already vague, so predicting 100-200 years is impossible.

Everything over 20 years is unpredictable, but the U.S. has a lasting geographical advantage, in that it has access to the Atlantic and Pacific, good internal transportation networks, a huge amount of arable land, natural resources, and no credible rivals in the Western hemisphere. Obesity isn't that big of a problem, and the U.S. isn't that much worse than other countries.

"Obesity isn't that big of a problem, and the U.S. isn't that much worse than other countries."

I strongly disagree and so do most (if not all) scientists. Study from UK journal the Lancet showed that the United States is home to the highest number of overweight and obese people in the world. In the U.S., 70.9 percent of men and 61.9 percent of women are overweight or obese, compared to 38 percent of men and 36.9 percent of women worldwide. That's pretty bad.

I think the OP's speculation is kind of ridiculous though.

Not really, unless its just obesity... Being obese means that you are fat, overweight means you eat more.

Obese= Fat People (scourge of the world)
Overweight= Not fat people that have muscle (still pretty selfish i guess)

Anyway, I guess the redistribution of food equally around the world would be some sort of healthy communism.

The future is a multipolar world centered in 5 areas - Russia, China, India, US, and EU (assuming that it has been forced down the throat of its citizens in 30-40 years).

All 5 are economic superpowers who have the funds to maintain a large military.

Jai I agree with you, but I just hope that in the future we will achieve something like a world without army (kinda utopist I know), but who knows, after all I also strongly believe nation will more likely disappear, the question is when? Perhaps after we will start the conquest of Space. Then the World might focus on something else than nationalism and useless war and territorial conflicts.

Every place in the world will be different in 100 years. Not just the US.

Most of us will be dead too.

@Angry Koala: I'm not a Utopianist. I accept nationalism and war as stark realities of human existence. What we need is a foreign policy that limits war and its disastrous consequences for our citizens and our world. No more blood for oil. No more wars for dictators. No more wars out of our sphere of influence. But unfortunately both Democrats and Republicans (as well as many European countries) have joined their lot with the neoconservatives and the military-industrial complex. Nationalism is alright when its about defending one's borders. Nationalism is wrong when it becomes about growing an empire.
