I'd like to open up the floor for the Predictions from 1958 video that was hotlinked today.
Some questions that come to my mind are:
 How likely to happen is government centralization in other countries than the USA?
 Is government centralization necessarily (straightforwardly) a bad thing?
Any other political/economical comments here.
Note: I would like a respectful and on-topic discussion here, so that means: disagree respectfully, rather than slander other community members.
