On the face of it, this paper is fairly standard Western Foundation/Think-Tank stuff. Its ostensible aim is to analyse the present and explore scenarios for the future development of humanity. From a 'Deep Political' perspective however, it can also be seen as a contribution to preparing the mass of the population for events already at an advanced planning stage. Of particular note in this paper is this quote from the third of its four scenarios entitled Hack Attack:

Devastating shocks like September 11, the Southeast Asian tsunami of 2004, and the 2010 Haiti earthquake had certainly primed the world for sudden disasters. But no one was prepared for a world in which large-scale catastrophes would occur with such breathtaking frequency. The years 2010 to 2020 were dubbed the “doom decade” for good reason: the 2012 Olympic bombing, which killed 13,000, was followed closely by an earthquake in Indonesia killing 40,000, a tsunami that almost wiped out Nicaragua, and the onset of the West China Famine, caused by a once-in-a-millennium drought linked to climate change.
