Mitt’s wish –
The common goal of those who want Armageddon is a world that looks like the world, without George Bailey, in It’s a Wonderful Life. It’s the world depicted in Back to the Future, Part 2. The goal of ruining the environment will come to pass and eventually the world will be the same as the world in the Road Warrior/Mad Max series of films. Then the polar ice caps will melt and eventually, Deeta said, the world will look like it did in Water World.
If those things come to pass, even if you remain complacent – you can kiss your picket-fence life goodbye. At least you’ll still be able to watch TV!
