That is PRECISELY what the Progressives/Communists want. Implosion is ESSENTIAL in the process of "fundamental transformation". Ever remodeled a house, kitchen, bath etc? The first thing you do is tear down the existing structure. What fills the gap won't be democracy or a constitutional republic it will be the beginnings of governance that brought the likes of Hitler, Stalin, Lenin, Pol Pot et al to power. When it happens that void of chaos and confusion will ALWAYS be filled by those like that and the panic stricken masses will welcome in their false promises of hope and change. Sit tight it's going to be a tough ride.
