Not doomsday, yet

Steffen Demeter’s letter (SDN Dec. 20) “Does this sound familiar?” quotes the specious conclusions of Dr. Lawrence Britt, author of “Fascism Anyone?” A friend of mine summarizes it quite succinctly: “Can it not also be said that the soothsayer has free rein as nobody can disagree with any degree of certainty. “This is not exactly a doomsday prediction, but comes close enough that it will probably enjoy the same success rate of all the past doomsday predictors, which is; they have never been correct yet.”
