No, I wouldn't say that. What they're predicting there is that the
massive state will die, smaller groups and cults (ala the Assassins)
will replace it with non-territorial based fighting, and that the
reaction to the abuses of the smaller groups and cults will cause a
popular demand for a resurrection of the big Brother-style govt.
It's an interesting thought, but I don't see that Big Brother is on
his deathbed, which is their starting premise.
