Corruption is not a risk.
Economic collapse is not a risk.
(Un)civil rebellion is not a risk.

They’re all interrelated, and wishing for things to be different doesn’t really help. Working for things to be different can help. It’s not a guarantee that things will get better. But when we don’t listen to each other, treat each other with respect, and try to work together, they are guaranteed to get a whole lot worse.
