Because of the nature of this board, I thought you all might like to know that there are currently over 25 visitors from the 22nd century residing in northern North America. Most of us have exiled ourselves here because of the severe environmental and political conditions of our own time. The remainder are simply interested in late 20th century culture. Since none of you will choose to believe me and will soon forget about this posting, ( I know because I checked the historical record before I left) I feel quite safe in filling you in on a few details concerning the next century. The second American civil war will commence in 2087 after a black/spanish speaking majority will revive the confederacy of southern U.S. states and vote to secede from the union. After 3 years of intense fighting, with millions of deaths and massive amounts of supportive intervention from the United Republics of South America, and the Confederation of African States, hostilities will cease with the signing of the Treaty of Cape Town in 2090. The following year the President of the Northern United States of America will receive the Nobel Smithson prize for refusing to use nuclear weapons during the course of the war.
