    • The last vestiges of Communism are eradicated from the Eastern Nations. In its wake, nuclear weapons quickly become available in abundance.[2]
    • The international power structure, once defined primarily by the acquisition of capital and military superiority, is blasted apart as Third World Nations begin to challenge the economic and military might of the Super-powers.[2]
    • The sciences of cybernetics, cloning and gene splicing rise steadily to the public forum. Militant humanist and hard-line religious groups begin to challenge the private interest corporations who benefit from these technologies.[2]
