And Before You leave here is a Special Story that Fall Of Nations is currently developing based on real world events
Back in 2011 a series of movements arose known as occupy movements show up in major american metropolitan areas, including New York, Atlanta Georgia, Washington DC, and Oakland California. They take with them the lessons of the last generation and practice Civil Disobedience, non-violent protesting in the spirit of the civil rights activist a generation before them. They hold many complaints, the top 1% of the country holds 40% of its wealth, the lack of jobs, the CEOs who are destroying their own corporations putting their employees out of work while they retire with billions of dollars that rightfully should belong to those that worked under them. But most of all they are sad the government does not appear to be paying attention to the economic downturn, the government is too busy pointing fingers and paying no heed to the rising crisis, they are disheartened with a government that will not listen to them, and in a democracy such issues are integral to the inner workings of the system.
The year is 2015 (approx release date): The economy has continued to suffer, tensions in Congress are at a peak, neither side willing to budge, on top of it a president who is helpless without Congress cooperating and passing bills. the people are angry and the occupy movements grow, not only are there major movements in every major city, but all over the suburban and rural areas people are rising, unemployment is at an all time high , the conditions are to the point as to make the Great depression of the 1930s look like a time of prosper. Tensions rise further, the national guard is called in to "protect the peace" in the major city centers with the biggest movements, Protesters are outraged the government instead of listening to their legitimate issues, and making solutions to their problems are instead showing off military strength to quell the protesters. Protesters become more aggressive they throw stones at the soldiers, and curse them for not backing up the people.
While many soldiers in the National Guard have mixed feelings even some agreeing with the protesters, they have their duty, their orders. in the turmoil of riots, one in DC gets to the peak, a soldier has lost his calm and shoots into the crowd, 1 person dies a child, 2 others are mortally wounded. For the protesters this is the breaking point, they have been shot at, occupy movements all across the country are turned into full blown riots, the military is called in, tanks roll through the streets, helicopter gunships hover overhead. military commanders are called to use deadly force to quell the rioters, several commanders disobey orders and release the news, to the public, they are branded as traitors. Renegade commanders quickly attach themselves to rioters, no longer is the event a massive riot, the occupy protesters now call themselves the rebellion, the revolution sweeps the country, fighting all around, a bloodbath the likes of which has never been seen before in american history.
In the aftermath both armies are exhausted, the cities of the United States lie in ruins, people forced out of their homes take shelter in the Lincoln Memorial, warming their hands near a lit oil drum, shots can be heard in the distance the last of the fighting ends in Washington, the victor is not clear and it no longer matters, the government officials left are devoid of any power, they can no longer fight, they can no longer enforce, the government of the once mightiest nation lies in shambles no longer capable of wielding a fighting force.
The destruction of the United States leaves a power vaccume, which world power will now become the Hegemon, the ruler of the world, and which Nations Will Fall.
